    Absolutely wonderful.

    My daughter got married here Saturday night at the barn. Was suppose to be outside, but at last moment we had to move inside due to rain. The wedding was gorgeous. Our decorations in the rustic barn setting were unbelievable. Neal and Hunter helped us every step of the way. There was no wedding planner. Neal and Hunter coordinated everything for us. They gave us suggestions, they took care of all of our problems. Not only did it look beautiful, but everyone had a great time. Highly recommend the Willows, especially the Barn.

    Beautiful Venue

    Beautiful Venue, several options for your ceremony including the outdoor Gardens at the Gazebo, in the Ballroom, at the Barn or in the Field in front of the pond under the beautiful trees. Neal was very accommodating and we loved the release of the Chinese Lanterns at the end of the reception.....Coolest thing ever, provided at no extra charge! Affordable Venue pricing, not many "add on" charges, works well with outside vendors. Thank you for a beautiful wedding day!
