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!!!!!Sent on 05/26/2019

Fantastic venue owner! I highly recommend The Willows for an amazing wedding day.
Neal, the venue owner, is like having your own wedding planner. He helps you find a caterer, a DJ, anything you can imagine, he has contacts. He makes sure every detail about your special event is amazing. My daughter had an outside wedding May 18, 2019 and the grounds are beautiful. We even had fireworks! The prices are very reasonable. I’m so happy we chose this venue. I can’t imagine having a better experience anywhere else. I highly recommend this venue for any special occasion.Sent on 05/21/2019

We had such a great experience with the Willows when we got married there last week!! I had been so discouraged after looking at crazy expensive venues that weren’t very nice, and then my fiancé and I randomly stumbled upon the Willows. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I knew we just had to get married there but I was terrified of what the price would be. But Neal is so reasonable and we were able to have the wedding of our dreams within our budget! He also knows so many vendors and recommended a fantastic caterer and makeup artist for us. Such an easy 5 star review!Sent on 05/27/2019
