From the parents of the bride....
My wife and I can't thank Bauer's Catering enough for the wonderful work and help with planning for our daughters' wedding. Our daughter and her new husband were equally impressed with their professionalism. Doreen's planning was meticulous and we had great confidence in all of her recommendations. The approved list of outside vendors was extremely helpful. Obviously, the venue was awesome, but the staff really makes the difference and we could not have been more pleased. Every detail was taken care of by someone who truly cared and enjoyed their role. The entire staff helped make the wedding day perfect.
The owners, Eddie and Mary were easy to communicate with and went beyond expectations to make the evening memorable. The presentation of the meal was excellent and many of our guests commented on the quality of the food.
Bauer's provides the vendors and Lehmann the venu...a perfect match. Bill L.

The service was excellent and their was buzz all night from so many people about how delicious the food was! It was so much fun that I undstand I had a little trouble coming to grips with it being over - delaying your team who were so wonderful to work with - sorry about that!
Thanks again, Kurt and Heidi E.
From a Bride and Groom...
"We just want to thank you for everything you did to make our dream wedding happen! From the cocktail hour, the beautiful tent and the helpful, wonderful staff AND the delicious food - I could not have imagined it being more perfect! Our guests were all extremely impressed with the location and meal. Thanks Mary for all your help with the details and really making my whole experience as a bride amazing!"
Thank you again for all you did!

From His Wife's Surpirse 50th Birthday Party...
"You guys are incredible! Our guests were complimenting nonstop on the great food quality and service. The building is beautiful, but doesn't mean a thing without the effort that you guys put into it. The room was warm on a 12 degree day, the lighting was perfect, the drinks and food were on time and kept on pace all night. The personal touche you guys add to your service is what makes you stand out from the rest. The entire event looked beautiful.
There's no way anyone in Lake County can out-do what I saw last night. I don't know how you guys do it, but what a night and I can't wait until our next event with you. From this point on, Bauer's is the only company we use.
You get what you pay for is so true, but we were pleasantly surpirsed at how competitive you are with your pricing despite your high quality of service. Very impressive! I am confident that I can refer Bauer's to everyone I know personally and professionally."
Best Regards, John Warren
From a Mother of the Bride (who did alot of the planning!)...
"My daughter had a storybook wedding. I knew we had done well when she told me "Mom, I had my dream wedding - everything was so perfect."
And it was! We loved everything about the Lehmann Mansion - the staff, the vintage setting, the outdoor ceremony, the beautiful grounds and landscaping, the delicious food and attention to detail. Every request was doable and every plan executed to perfection. Mary was a treasure guiding us along the way and always providing the assurances that our day would be just as we planned; we always felt confident that we were in good hands.
The Mansion is a spectacular backdrop for wedding memories - the pictures and videos from our daughter's wedding day at the Lehmann are breathtakng.
There is no better place for creating not just a wedding, but an experience!
Warmest Thanks, Mary Hill
From Parents of The Bride (who did alot of the planning!)...
WOW! What can we say - the weekend was simply fantastic! Thanks for everything you did to make Penn and Mike's reception a truly memorable experience.
The Mansion set up, the service, the cocktail hour and appetizers, the dinner, the desserts, etc. - everything was absolutely top notch!
You are both truly professionals and passionate in what you do, and it definitely shows! We will most certainly recommend you to any of our friends who may have future needs.
And the Mansion - our guests were just in awe of the beauty of the Mansion, its history, the setting, the food. Many of our guests commented that it was THE best wedding reception they had ever attended, and the BEST dinner they ever had at one.
Thanks again for everything, The Valentini's
Not just one, but 2 thank you notes from this pair!....
We had an incredible wedding and you and your staff did an amazing job! We still talk about the appetizers and the meal was excellent. You really know how to host a party - I mean, all we had to do was celebrate - you took care of every last detail and it was perfect. Thank you for making the best day of our lives such a memorable event.
We are back from our honeymoon and you cannot wipe the grins off of our faces. People call us every day to say how beautiful the mansion was,how good the food was and how it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. I can't thank you enough for giving us the best day of our lives. It was absolutely wonderful.
If you ever have a client on the fence about renting the mansion - feel free to have them call me for a reference.
Warmest Regards, Aimee and Todd
Thought we'd go back a little further - (we've been around a long time!) Here's one from a 2003 Bride and Groom - seems like just yesterday!...
We would like to thank you for everything you did to make our day so wonderful! Everythinhg was perfect and we owe a lot of that to you.
Mary, thanks for taking charge at the rehearsal. We were so glad you were there to provide us with some direction since our minister didn't show up on time. We also appreciate everything you did at the ceremony and reception to make things run smoothly. We honestly didn't worry about a thing!
Eddie, although we didn't get to see you until the end of the night - we know you were busy too! The food and presentation were excellent - truly unbelievable! To this day, we are still receiving compliments from our guests.
Our compliments to your serving staff as well. They were all very professional and courteous. The extra attention given to our guests was noted and greatly appreciated. Please pass along our gratitude and let them know we think they are top notch.
The reason we decided to go with Bauer's Catering is because we liked the personal attention and the feel of a family-owned and run business. It is apparent through our experience that Bauer's Catering is superior to their competition. We knew we made the right choice when you went of of your way to accommode our guests both during and after the dinner. Needless to say - we would not hesitate to recommend you to our many friends and family.
Through our experience with Bauer's Catering, it was also evident that you both work very hard! We have enclosed some gift cards in order for the two of you to enjoy a nice dinner out on us. We thought it might be nice to have someone else do the cooking, the serving and the clean-up! Please enjoy yourselves - You deserve it! Thanks again for everything.
You are wonderful, Katie and Todd
