    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鈥檓 so happy we chose this venue. I can鈥檛 imagine having a better experience anywhere else. I highly recommend this venue for any special occasion.

    Absolutely amazing!!!

    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鈥檛 very nice, and then my fianc茅 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!
