A Beautiful Venue with so many perks!
Rockwood’s sure knows how to take care of their guest! Best Wedding Venue!! They deserve 10 stars! Wedding Date: 4-3-21. The coordinators at Rockwood’s are amazing huge shout out to Lisa, Meagan, and Katie. We had to postpone our wedding 2 times due to Covid and these ladies have been so wonderful to work with. Best communication ever! They respond to emails and calls quickly! We did a plated meal that was served quick. The food was so good we are still getting compliments about it. I highly recommend the pot roast! The bartenders were knowledgeable and nice to all our guest! The venue is beautiful. All the twinkle lights really light up the room and make for pretty pictures. The venue and food cost are very reasonable too. We had Lisa as our wedding day coordinator. She went above and beyond! She made sure the day stayed on track and that things ran smoothly. They really do make everything so convenient for you and guest! 3 huge perks of getting married at Rockwood’s are 1: You can also have your ceremony there. They have indoor and outdoor options! 2: There is a hotel sharing the parking lot! 3: The biggest perk of all… We literally were able to drop off all our decorations 2 days in advance and they set up everything for you!! They also have a lot of beautiful decorations of theirs you can use. Then when the weddings over you can just leave and go to your hotel or next destination. They do all the cleanup for you! They box up your decorations, and you pick them up 1-3 days later. This was great for us. We have been to so many weddings where you see the families all cleaning up an hour before the wedding ends. Who needs that stress!?! We loved our wedding at Rockwood’s and highly recommend it to everyone. Great atmosphere, tasty food, very reasonable prices, and stress-free.Sent on 04/12/2021

Amazing experience - felt like royalty!
Rockwoods is absolutely amazing! They take care of EVERYTHING and created a stress free environment for our wedding day!Sent on 06/29/2021
All staff is extremely personal, caring, considerate, and fun! I could not imagine hiring anyone else for our special day.
We received so many comments from wedding guests about how great the venue looked and how fantastic the staff is at Rockwoods.
Rockwoods made me and my husband feel like royalty on our special day! Everything went so smooth and they made amazing suggestions! They helped me figure out what centerpieces should look like, took care of the decorating for the cake table, and suggested starting the wedding later when there was an accident and guests were running late.
This place is worth every single penny and I HIGHLY recommend them I’d you’re looking for a stress-free, fun wedding day. Hiring them was one of the best decisions we made!
Rockwoods's reply:Lisa, thank you so much for the glowing review! You and Andy were a joy to work with!! We are so grateful that you chose us to host your big day ❤

I have worked with Rockwoods as a bride myself and also with Katie professionally. I have always been pleased with their services and their timely response.
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!
This place is a fabulous venue. The food and service is great. Well worth checking out. Kathy
