Joy Tevis is a JOY to work with and helped make our dreams come true for our day. We took advantage of doing the team tour for our guests after the ceremony and before the reception, and they loved it. We did the hour photo shoot in the free roam while our guests did the tram and it was a really wonderful way for us to recenter ourselves, and the experience was incredible. The night before our wedding, we rented the A-frame on the lake and stayed the night, woke up in the morning and were so refreshed to sip in the day with a relaxed start. The bed was a full size, and we recommend the upgrade it to a queen, which they said they plan to do. Couldn’t recommend this venue more highly.Sent on 02/08/2020

Hands down the best wedding venue. You really have to see it for yourself to see how beautiful it is. Spend the extra hundreds of dollars to get keeper truck pictures. I had the most unique wedding and couldn’t imagine it any other way. Even though it poured on us during our pictures, you can’t even tell with how breathtaking they areSent on 11/06/2018

I don't think I can possibly express how happy and grateful I am to have had my wedding at Northwest Trek. You have to see the setting to understand the breathtaking views of forest, lake and meadow ( with the occasional furry visitor gracing the landscape) and peaceful serenity that is the Hellyer Center. Every step of the way I felt supported by the staff at NW Trek, especially Joy who answered every one of my questions. She was a pivotal reason why I never got overwhelmed when thinking about and planning our big day. Even when rainy storm clouds threatened to make our ceremony a soppy one, she knew just what to do and explained how everything could be moved inside with out making me panic. Luckily the rain clouds parted just in time for the ceremony and our wedding flew by, I got to enjoy and be present in every moment, knowing that the staff had everything handled. The venue provided so many extras that I wasn't expecting but made our day perfect like chalkboard signs, tree rounds for the center pieces, table cloths and bows etc. Thinking back on our day, I can't think of a single thing I would change I would do it all over again a hundred times. Cannot recommend enough!Sent on 06/28/2018
