The Willow Ballroom is easily divided into a cocktail, reception, and ceremony space, so the options for design and creativity are endless! All kinds of weddings in all colors, shapes and sizes with couples from near and far. And no matter what type of budget, large or small, they all work beautifully in our space.
Included in our venue rental are one of a kind, eclectic furnishings, tables & chairs for up to 300 guests, and a photo session at a local private residence/vineyard with your day of event photographer.
You'll dine, mingle and dance the night away on one of the happiest day of your life. Looking forward to sharing this special day with you.

Beautiful Venue, Amazing Service
Fate brought us to The Willow Ballroom and we sure are happy about that! After researching every single venue within a 40 mile radius, we were pretty set on one venue nearby that had a similar look we were going for. Then one day we received a marketing email for The Willow Ballroom - never heard of it and it never came up during any of my searches. It looked beautiful in photos so we decided to go check it out immediately after work. We were sold!Sent on 09/05/2019
If you book here you have to pick a DJ and caterer on their preferred list, but otherwise any other vendors are your choice! Don't worry about that slight limitation, if you even want to call it that, because they have some awesome choices to select from.
The ballroom itself is huge and has so many possibilities. We were one of the first to get married outdoors and luckily The Willow added brand new turf just before our wedding date! The view from the outdoor space is beautiful with the greenery and the river in the background. There are two wooden pergolas already set along with planters, so you really don't need to do much to the space! Downside is if you're getting married in hot weather, it's pretty tough on the crowd. The bridal party is all in the shade up front but other than that it's just direct sunlight. We rented umbrellas and provided fans to help with some of that sunlight. If you wanted to avoid that, you could do your ceremony inside as well and do a room flip during cocktail hour. So many options!
The indoor area is even more beautiful! Chandeliers and market lights are lit across the room, highlighting the high wooden ceilings and contrasting concrete columns. You can soften the look with drapery options but we opted to keep it without drapery to avoid breaking up the space. We barely even needed to bring any major decor. The Willow has a ton of inventory that you can use as a part of your event.
Throughout the planning process, Angelica was highly responsive and easy to talk to. I appreciated her quick response time and level of patience with my numerous questions! She's super sweet, gives suggestions when you're unsure, and supports your decisions when you share your ideas with her. It felt like I was just talking to a friend, not a business owner. Upon booking, she will give you a checklist of important dates which makes it super easy to make sure everything is done timely.
During our actual event, she was easy to reach if we were in different areas, and catered to not only the groom and me, but also our entire bridal party and family. She's extremely thoughtful and literally thinks of everything.
Our event moved so seamlessly. She probably came up to us once or twice during the whole thing and she didn't skip a beat. I didn't need to coordinate with anyone once different vendors arrived, she just knew where they needed to be and what they needed to do based off of my timeline and room layout, which are required by a certain due date before your event. She even had our car packed by the time the event ended, which allowed time for us to say goodbye to our guests and clean out the lounge space.
I could probably keep going on and on about The Willow but I'll leave it at this. The Willow is amazing and more people need to know about it. Even if you're not booking an event anytime soon, share it with someone who is, so they can go check it out!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception with ~250 guests at the Willow Ballroom and it was an absolute dream! Angelica was incredibly easy to work with, always available when we needed her, and the BIGGEST help on the wedding day.Sent on 09/16/2017
We had some issues with our caterer early on, and Angelica helped us with finding a new one and was so flexible with whatever we wanted to do in the space. She let us come to the venue during the planning process multiple times - we were engaged 20 months so it was really fun to watch the venue grow and change every time we came to visit. There are so many GREAT photo areas, a lovely bridal suite / grooms lounge, plenty of parking, and a million ways to set up the event space.
Fast forward to the day of the wedding and I cannot say thank you enough to Angelica! Whenever we needed ANYTHING she was there and offering to help. It was a toasty 105 on our wedding day so she graciously drove us to the photo locations and let us hang out in the AC of her car. She even helped chauffeur guests from the parking lot to the ballroom. At the end of the night, when my guests chanted "ONE MORE SONG" she let the DJ play one more.
The venue was perfect for our vision and had such a huge part in making our day such a dream - 100 times out of 100 I would suggest this venue for any wedding or special event.

My husband and I were looking for an indoor venue for our fall wedding that wouldn't limit the amount of guests we wanted to invite. When we stumbled upon the Willow Ballroom and said YES to this venue immediately. The space is a gorgeous blank canvas which you have he freedom to design and create an event unique to you and your future spouse. The space is beautiful on its own and doesn't require a lot of decoration. I would suggest paying to have the drapes hung as in the photos, it really helps enhance the space for aesthetics and acoustics. A great coordinator and involved catering staff is a must since this space is so open. Angelica is very friendly and easy to work with, if you have questions or are stumped about the design of your event, she has great ideas and solutions.Sent on 11/21/2016
Our wedding was AMAZING and all of our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue. You will not regret having your wedding here.
Beautiful venue with so much versatility!
THIS new venue is the next best wedding location! I love the blend of rustic, romantic elegant features. No matter what your theme, it's a gorgeous blank canvas for your vision.
