    Beautiful and stress free!!

    Our daughter's reception was held at Oakwood Farms located at The Willows and we could not have asked for a better venue. The entire experience from planning and then the actual day was very stress free and that is mostly in part to the great job that Neal does. He was very accommodating to our requests and truly helped to make it a special day. The guests especially loved the sparkler send off and lantern release that are provided at no charge by the venue. The facility and grounds are beautiful.

    Wow! Thank you for making my day AMAZING

    We had our wedding at The Willows Manor and Gardens on 5-25-19 and we were completely blown away by the venue! The owners went OVER and BEYOND our expectations! We got married in the gardens and WOW is all I can say! Everything was perfectly groomed and all the flowers were just an added touch of beauty to our ourdoors wedding. The venue itself, bridal suite and grooms doom, were impeccable! You can really tell the owners take care of their venue and care about the wedding party! With the extreme heat on our wedding day, they still did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable and didn't melt in the heat. They had ice cold water for our guest that were sitting in the direct heat and sun during our ceremony. We had our reception in the ballroom and sweet Jesus, was it gorgeous!?!? Everything from the setup to the details of our Captian America theme was perfectly done! I can not thank the owners enough! On the BIGGEST day of my life, The Willows Manor and Gardens made everything perfect for me! I did not have to stress about anything other than the normal bride stuff! 😁😁 I highly recommend The Willows Manor and Gardens for any event you have coming up! We definitely will be hosting more events at The Willows Manor and Gardens in the future!!!!!
