    Heartwood Conference Center and Retreat exceeded every single expectation that I had for a wedding venue. I came across this gem, hidden the woods, completely by accident (or was it?) and I am so happy and blessed that we found it! From the moment we pulled in the drive, I realized this place was special. We had a December 17th wedding, but even in the late fall visit, I could tell this was going to be something beautifully special. Those feelings continued with our sales representative, Dana who walked us through all the options this gorgeous facility had to offer. We decided to book both levels, as we couldn't decide between the two! We had our ceremony downstairs, headed upstairs for our social hour and meal and then back downstairs for our dance. Everything magically transformed as we were in the middle of our guests. The downstairs ceremony room was beautiful in December late afternoon. The sunrise for our ceremony, a huge unexpected beautiful bonus! The event planner, Jennifer was amazing. She was quick to respond to any of my calls, emails and questions. Always courteous and knowledgeable and able to provide solutions to any of my concerns. From the moment we started the planning process, to the sad moment we left the resort after the wedding, she was there helping and offering her service. We brought in a lot of decorations and were stunned when the janitorial staff just offered to help us unload our vehicles and trailer. Another example of how courteous and helpful everyone at this facility was! The dining room staff was incredibly accommodating and personable. Every employee I encountered was friendly and made me feel like they sincerely were happy we were there. What an amazing feeling to be surrounded with so many friendly faces that welcomed us and treated us with such hospitality. The food was absolutely incredible. From our rehearsal dinner to the wedding dinner to the late hour snacks we served. Everything was impeccable. I had

    It was our pleasure to help make your special day the wedding of your dreams and we enjoyed every minute of it as well. Your choice of both levels was perfect to ensure the timing and the flow you desired for a beautiful December wedding, and to accommodate the great guests you had to share your memory-making day. Your Dad's happiness with the shrimp was a special moment for our team as well -- as we are in the business of creating smiles! We look forward to your next visit.

    Wow.....we just had our wedding at Heartwood , and we can not RAVE enough about all this AMAZING venue!!!!!!!!!! We decided to spend the extra money to rent out both floors at Heartwood, and boy was it worth it!! We also decided to come in a few days early before the wedding to host fun activities leading up to our big day. Because there was no other wedding there that weekend, our friends, families & guests basically had the entire venue to ourselves, which was so incredibly fun! Our family and friends were blown away by the location's beauty and Heartwood staff's friendliness, and they had so much fun with all the outdoor activities on the property on the days leading up to and after the wedding. People also loved staying at the houses, cabins and cottages, but they definitely booked up fast.

    While the venue was beautiful, the Heartwood staff were even better. First and foremost, Karla (the event planner) was absolutely on top of every detail and truly listened to what we were looking for. We were in contact early on with Karla and all that proactive communication really helped the day go so smoothly. On the day of the wedding, things went incredibly smoothly - despite a last minute change of indoor to outdoor ceremony. Further, the manager on call, catering staff, and front desk attendants were always willing to help answer questions or pitch in to help. They even surprised us by wrapping up an extra dinner and dessert for us after the wedding and putting it in our honeymoon suite. Overall, we cannot say enough about this venue and the staff. We can't wait to come back for years to come to celebrate our wedding anniversaries!!!

We hope to be able to host you for a weekend or two when you need to build some more memories!
