    100% recommend Rockwoods!

    I came to the Rockwoods anxious and nervous about our wedding after having talked with other venues. This place was different. They took my sketchy plans and helped me explore options and choose the wedding day of our dreams - not theirs! I felt personally connected to the Event Organizer staff after our first meeting! Our classy, small wedding and reception took place in their beautiful Four Seasons room with a fireplace and overlooking a garden patio- perfect for pictures. We choose the Pot Roast meal that was SO delicious! Servers and our coordinator were smiling, kind and helpful to all, from elderly to 1 year old! Definitely a professional 5 star day!

    Rockwoods's reply:

    Thank you, Joanne, for your thoughtful review! It was always a pleasure meeting with you to help plan your day, and meeting your lovely family the day of your wedding was the icing on the cake. We wish you and Dave lots and lots of years of happiness together!

    Professional, friendly, and ready to do anything they can to make your day everything you dreamed it to be. My husband and I hosted our rehearsal dinner at Rockwoods Banquet Center and I was so thankful for a relaxed and intimate celebration with those standing by our side the next day!
