when we started looking for a place and we found the woodward we knew it was the right place not only because of how beautiful it was but because the catering service they use was the same restaurant we had had our first date in so it was a no brainer. However our enchanted choice soon became a nightmare thanks to the person handling the business affairs at the woodward at the time, he will not answer calls, or emails, he will cancel appoitments, he was rude at the meetings, I had a few tears and a few sleepless nights, that until they got rid of him and brough MORGAN what a wonderful human being ! Morgan brought us back to being in love with our Venue she worked so hard to make sure we were pleased, and I will tell you to what point. When the woodward change managers the chef that we fell in love with the first time was not longer working with them. they of course accomodate a second testing to make sure we still were pleased with the food, but unfurtunately even though the food was good it was not the same my fiance had the first time. Morgan keept trying and we did a second tasting with them but still was not the same. At this point I was so nervous we were not goign to have the food we liked, but my fiance kept telling me Morgan was going to fix it and she sure did , how? she literally tracked down the first chef that did the tasting the very first time and she brought him exclusively to do our food ! my Fiance couldn't believe it when she told him ! and everyone at the wedding was so pleased with the food we had Chicken Michelle and Bake glazed Salmon ! they were amazing !! Morgan is so good at what she does, for her is more than the money is about to make your day special and making sure you get what you need to feel special. THanks to her efforts and personal touch we had a wonderful time with wonderful food ! Thank you !!Sent on 10/15/2013

The Woodward Room is a gorgeous location to host a wedding (or any event). With it overlooking South Bend, it makes a great backdrop for an event. The room is great and what really sold us on it was the chairs in the room. They are dark wood and very comfortable. So many venues have cheap folding chairs and you really have to rent chair covers to make them look decent. These were beautiful! The room needs very little decorating if you're on a budget and having a nice bar was awesome! The staff, especially Leigh, were terrific to work with and very flexible. They did almost all of the setup and decorating for us and it looked wonderful.Sent on 08/18/2009

I love this place. Everyone was wonderful. The room is modern and elegant. There is no tacky decor. Very clean! I have recommend to friends and family, two others have had their reception there already.Sent on 09/27/2008
