    Walston Wedding

    My husband and I booked the Willows Event Center for our wedding on September 5th and it was the best decision for our special day. The staff was professional, communicative and accommodating. The food and drinks were so good. The venue was so spacious and beautiful. Miranda was a God send during this process.

    Very professional

    I met with Jessica at The Willows and she was wonderful. She showed us around and answered all of our questions. She was so nice and professional. After our meeting we felt like this was definitely the right match for us. It was exactly what we were looking for. Our wedding is not until May 16, 2020 so I can't say as yet what the experience was. I will definitely leave another review when the time comes. It is a beautiful venue. We decided to do a garden ceremony and have the reception at The Lodge. I had to rate this company inorder to post my review. I gave 5 star for quality of service but since I haven't had my wedding as of yet, this is for my first impression when visiting the venue and speaking with Jessica. If by chance this was not so on my wedding day I will definitely write another review and update my rating. Also, she was very quick to respond when I email her with a question. Another thing was that they were very accomomating with the start time for our ceremony. Thanks Jessica 😊.

    The Willows's reply:

    Wow, Lisa, this is so great to hear! I can't wait to share it with Jessica, she will be so excited. We cannot wait to host your special day and feel so privileged to do so! Thanks for taking the time to write this!

    August 2020 Wedding

    My husband and I are so glad we chose the Lodge at the Willows for our wedding. The food was delicious, the venue was beautiful, and the pricing was competitive. Their attention to detail and personal touches on our wedding day blew us away. Now the thing that really sets this venue apart: the people. Our wedding was held in August 2020, right in the midst of the pandemic. The Willows staff (specifically Charlie and Miranda) did an excellent job communicating with us when the local government changed the allowable number of guests on multiple occasions. The Willows put our happiness and the safety of our guests above their bottom line throughout the process. We have incredible memories of our day thanks to the staff and management at the Willows.
