    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.

    Our wedding

    We had to postpone our wedding that was supposed to happen in 2020. Neil was happy to hold our place and was great in every step of the way. We were supposed to get married in his beautiful garden but we ended up going inside. He quickly turned everything around on a drop of a hat. He was great!!

    The Willows's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure. I know you guys had more than your share of mishaps- your wedding turned out beautifully ! And you made a beautiful bride ! Congratulations

    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!
