The team did an outstanding job for our special day!!
HWCC was an ideal location for our daughter's wedding. We were able to use the inside and outside areas which made for a perfect night offering multi-areas for our guests to enjoy while watching the sunset back-drop. The team listened to our preferences and then delivered, offering suggestions and including a few special touches to personalize the event for the bride and groom. Both the dinner and service were outstanding and they transformed the club into a magical setting of celebration for us. We couldn't be happier with this venue and the memorable moments we shared there.Sent on 08/20/2020
Hawthorn Woods Country Club's reply:We are so happy you chose HWCC for your daughter's special day! 2020 is a difficult year for many Brides and Grooms who had to downsize their guest list due to restrictions. We strive to make each and every wedding day special for all our couples, an event they should never forget, as it is the first as Husband and Wife. Wishing them many wonderful years of Happiness!

We got married 8/1/2020 during the pandemic and Lisa and her team were fabulous and helped us put the wedding together and everything was absolutely perfect! Chef Newman served up amazing food and all of guests thoroughly enjoyed and complimented it. The patio was beautiful for cocktail hour and has 3 fire pits which many used after dinner to spread out for social distancing. The bartenders Vera & Richard did an outstanding job and gave awesome service! Can't say enough about this venue and the exceptional service!Sent on 08/22/2020

Best Wedding Venue EVER!
Hawthorn Woods Country Club is the best hidden gem! Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Lisa, the coordinator, was amazing! She made sure that our wedding was everything we envisioned and more. She handled setting up all of our decorations and even handled tear down with everything boxed up and ready to go by 12:15 at the end of the night so we didn't have to worry about going back the next day. As a little something special for my husband, we wanted to get a keg from one of our favorite local breweries, and Lisa made sure that it happened for us. Going through the planning process, any time I had a question, no matter what time of day it was, it seemed like Lisa got back to me within an hour. The food was phenomenal. Our guests have raved about it nonstop telling us how delicious everything was and how impressed they were with the portion sizes. Thank you so much to Lisa and all of the Hawthorn Woods Country Club staff for going above and beyond to make sure our day was nothing short of perfect!Sent on 07/17/2019
