Breath-taking location!

First of all, Jeff and Tere are the absolute best! Jeff gave me a list of affordable and reliable vendors to aid with our special day and each vendor was attentive and easy to reach. I cannot stress enough how Jeff's list of vendors made it so simple to plan the wedding! The venue itself was breath-taking. I was told by many of our guests how magical the day was and how they loved the scenery. We had an October wedding and the weather was perfect! It was sunny but cool. If you are looking for a unique forest wedding, Into the Woods is the place for you :)

A magical experience 鉁笍

Into the Woods is thee best venue. From the moment we did our walk through I knew we were going to book and I am so glad we did! Tere and Jeff welcomed us and made us feel like we were meant to be married there. If you dream of a woodsy outdoor wedding this is the place. On our wedding day Jeff was there to support and make sure the day went as we had hoped. Definitely recommend and will hopefully renew our vows in 5 years here 鉂わ笍

Perfect venue, Jeff and Tere are incredible people; this place is simply magical. We loved getting married here! Everything about our day was perfect, and a lot of credit goes to Jeff and Tere for having an amazing list of vendors as well as a perfect and beautiful forest venue. We loved everything about this experience! From planning our special day to the incredible reception we threw. We can't say enough about how AMAZING Into the Woods is!
