Perfect venue, perfect venue managers!

Skyler and John, the venue owners/managers, were SO amazing. They were very communicative and easy to work with, and they made the wedding venue portion of planning so easy! I was able to tour the venue multiple times, they were so helpful and informative, and really helped calm my nerves and anxiety answering what must've been a hundred questions.

The venue itself is exactly what we were looking for - the outdoor ceremony area overlooks the water and even has an outdoor open air pavilion as a rain/weather option. We ended up holding our wedding underneath the pavilion with all the doors open, the cross-breeze made the 90+ degree heat feel like a perfect 75 degree day.

The inside reception space held our 128 comfortably, and the ceilings are high enough for the chair lifting in the hora (if anyone is curious). In addition to the buffet tables, we even had room for additional tables in the reception space for desserts, cards/gifts, etc. The lobby is also absolutely gorgeous with the stone fireplace and double doors. The sun sets over the large patio connected to the reception hall, creating perfect golden hour lighting both outside and in the reception hall.

The outdoor area provides great background for pictures, and everything is so clean and pristine that we didn't want extra outdoor ceremony decorations to take away from the landscape and scenery. There is even a putting course we were able to rent out during cocktail hour, a unique experience that many of our guests loved!

10/10 and 100% recommend the location and the owners - we'd love to work with them again and host an event there in the future!!

Magical Experience!

My husband and I absolutely adored working with John and Skyler! They went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding day was everything that we had hoped for. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose the Wenbeck every time! Truly, we will miss working with John and Skyler, and cannot thank them enough for making our dreams come true. Don’t hesitate—pick the Wenbeck!!
