    Baby Shower

    We decided to have our baby shower at the venue and it was absolutely amazing! Super clean and beautiful! I wouldn’t have wanted to host it anywhere else! It’s nice to know that this place is offered for many events besides the beautiful weddings it holds here! Highly, highly recommend to anyone looking for any type of elegant, country, rustic venue spot!

    Dream Come True

    I highly recommend The Venue at Waddell Place to be your venue of choice for any celebration or event you are planning! Our wedding day was nothing short of beautiful on this property with all the different yet so beautiful views! The grounds are kept up well. We had 250 people attend our wedding, and it was so spacious for everyone. The owners are kind, helpful, and timely. We could not have chosen a more perfect place to say “I do!” Thanks, Venue at Waddell Place, for having us!

    The Venue at Waddell Place's reply:

    Thanks so much for the kind review! We are so happy you had a good experience!! Best wishes to you both!!

    Surprise 55th Birthday Party for my husband

    I highly recommend The Venue at Waddell Place. Donna and her team provided exceptional customer service to myself and guest. I had several guest rave on their experience of the valet service offered. The bartender did an excellent job.

    We had 180 people in attendance and a full band provided our entertainment. We had plenty of room for socializing and spacious accommodations for the 10 person band.

    I'm also a caterer and their kitchen is ideal for a caterer. I was able to save a lot in my budget because they provide the table linens in their package.

    My guest are still talking about their experience at the Venue at Waddell Place and its been almost 2 months since my event.

    The Venue at Waddell Place's reply:

    Thank you April! We realize that you could have had your husband’s surprise birthday party at any venue around but you chose us and for that we are humbled! We really enjoyed meeting your family and friends and sincerely appreciate you placing your trust in Waddell Place!
