My daughter's wedding reception was recently held at The Windamere. Our family couldn't have asked for a better experience or venue! Mica was wonderful to work with and was there for us at every step in planning my daughter's wedding and reception. Wedding planning can be very stressful, especially when you've never done it before. Mica provided valuable input and recommendations and she coordinated with all of my daughter's vendors, so that both the wedding and reception were stress free! Although my daughter's ceremony was performed at a separate location, Mica orchestrated events there for both the rehearsal and the ceremony. Because of her efforts, the ceremony went off without a hitch! It was beautiful! I cannot express how wonderful it was to work with her staff and with her. Our family and friends have all commented on how beautiful the reception was and how much they enjoyed themselves. Many thanks to The Windamere staff for giving us such wonderful memories in their gorgeous facility. I highly recommend them!

The Windamere was a beautiful place and honestly a dream come true for me when it came to my wedding! My husband immediately fell in love with the stag room and insists we now need a bar vault in our house! I personally was enamored with the chandelier and balconies!Sent on 09/28/2017
Mica was great too! She made the whole experience enjoyable and seamless for us! She coordinated with all our vendors so we didn't have to deal with any business on our special day. I couldn't imagine how my wedding would have turned out without her and The Windamere! Truly a lifesaver!! A billion stars from us!
