    Amazing experience - felt like royalty!

    Rockwoods is absolutely amazing! They take care of EVERYTHING and created a stress free environment for our wedding day!

    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!
