    May 3, 2019

    We got married on 5/3/19 and had the most amazing wedding. Joe, our maitre'd was one of my favorite people to work with during wedding planning. Even our guest talked about how great he was. He made sure my husband and I had everything we needed and also made sure we ate which was huge!! We had a special memorial chair set up for my mom during the ceremony and Joe went as far as to give me that chair for our sweetheart table. It meant more to me than I am sure he realized. Don't hesitate to reach out to the Westwood but be sure to work with Cathy, Joe and Elizabeth. We wish we could do the day all over again!

    Fantastic Wedding Venue!

    After visiting countless venues, we had finally came across The Westwood. We fell in love with the venue. It is a family owned business and that becomes obvious as soon as you meet with the staff. They are so kind and friendly. During the planning process, Cindy and Cathy guided us each step of the way to customize our day exactly how we imagined. Some things we didn’t know what to choose and they kindly provided advice and direction. Joe was our Maitre D. We met him two days before our wedding for rehearsal. During rehearsal, we were like two deer in headlights. We realized we had not planned those tiny details in the ceremony. He noticed our slight panic and reassured us that everything was going to be perfect. On the day of the wedding, he nailed it! He was juggling every aspect of the ceremony, reception, and everything in between like a true professional. We think back to the day and are still shocked how perfectly he made everything flow. We owe this to the Westwood for providing excellent service. The prices are unheard of and the food is AMAZING! Guests still to this day talk about how great the food was at our wedding. Our wedding day was more than we could ever imagine and we are so thankful the Westwood made this happen. With lots of love- thank you Cindy, Cathy, Joe, and all of the staff behind the scenes for making our day so special. We HIGHLY recommend The Westwood to everyone and anyone.

    Our reception was PERFECT!!

    The Westwood exceeded our expectations for our wedding reception! All the way from booking our date with Cathy - she is amazing! She always answered my emails with my silly questions and always made me feel at ease. Every appointment with her was thorough, and i never felt leaving uneasy or overwhelmed which EASILY happens with wedding planning. The day of our wedding we were greeted immediately by our maitre d who was one of the sweetest women ive ever met before! the whole night she was like a superhero who always made sure we were OK and had everything we needed. All night we heard how beautiful the room looked and how amazing the food was, which made me feel so great! Every detail we asked for was executed and everything about the reception was just phenomenal. I would 100% recommend The Westwood to everyone i know because they are affordable, they work with you throughout the ENTIRE process, and they will make everything you ask for happen. THANK YOU !!!
