The best reception venue you can find- stress free and they take care of you!!

If you want to take the stress off of your wedding day, go to Rockwoods!! Not only is the venue and the food STELLAR, but Rockwoods makes your wedding day so easy. They do all your decor and floorplan setup and tear down, which in itself is worth it, so you and family don't have to worry about it day of, they also are very communicative in the planning and preparation process, and are there to coordinate throughout the night. 1000% worth it for ease and organization of the day so you and your family and friends can just enjoy celebrating you! We got such great compliments on the food, alcohol, atmosphere, and vibes of our reception- Rockwoods will always have a special place in our hearts :)

All around stellar venue

I鈥檓 in love with our wedding day! Full service, awesome coordinators, bar staff, servers that are efficient. The whole wedding went so smooth! Anything that may have gone wrong, I don鈥檛 know about, which is the way you want it right? We had our ceremony at the venue and people sat at their tables. Lots of comments about how awesome it was to grab a drink and have a spot to sit to watch. Then, no commute to a reception. The food is to die for. The space looks like a regular hall at first, but they put up tule and lights and backdrops (for a reasonable fee) and bam the place is sparkling. There is a private outdoor space with tables and a large fire pit. They have a restaurant attached so you can go check out the food and vibe, which was cool. We had such a fun wedding! I am so happy we had it at Rockwoods!
