    All Around Amazing

    So much can be said about this venue. They were super easy to work with and super flexible with how we wanted our wedding to go. As long as it's legal, they will allow anything that is able to work - We were able to have legal fireworks that pro sports teams get, we ended up having a 10 minute fireworks show that were better then the 4th of July. The Woods price is perfect to be able to allow you to spend in other areas, price is very nice when renting their indoor/outdoor venue. They have 2 houses on site you are able to rent so you don't ever have to leave or run to multiple different sites. The on site hotel helps guests to stay as well, they do also over shuttle services, golf cart, and more. The outdoors setting makes for great photos and a great venue. They do all the setup and take down of everything they own and supply the DJ equipment as well. Very cost effective and very helpful, they supply a lot to make sure your wedding goes off perfectly. I can't recommend this place enough, they kept in touch with us during the wedding and made sure that we were always supplied or helped out where needed. They even helped cover part of the cost of a band to come in the night before so we could have a pre-party/bachelor an bachlorette party on site. What an amazing place, amazing staff, amazing ac-commendation, amazing price, amazing food, and so much more. This place at a minimum is worth going to and speaking with them about what they can do, highly recommend going with them though to make for an easy wedding experience.
