I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said already. The staff here is about as incredible as I have ever seen in any area of service anywhere in the world. I have provided 5 stars in every category, and I cannot think of any reason to downgrade the Woodwinds in any respect. Service, food, location- all top notch.
Scott is so kind. He respects the importance of your big day and treats your wedding as if it was a network television live event. Thank you, Scott, and everyone at the Woodwinds for what you did for my wife and I.

We chose this venue because as soon as we walked into the door we felt very welcomed and catered to. All the staff down right to the cleaning crew made us feel calm and at ease. We got there 1hr early due to me mixing up the schedule and the cleaning crew welcomed us, sat us down, served us coffee, and let us explore the venue. Even though they were super busy cleaning and getting ready for a wedding. I got to see the place beautifully decorated. When my consultant arrived she gave us the tour and was very attentive to our needs and wants. We fell in love with the place after looking high and low for venues. The process is easy, they are not pushy and they even do financing. They let us tweek the menu to fit our unique style too!! They even gave us a gift bag with suggestions from local vendors and complimentary signature spaghetti sauce. We were so impressed.

My fiancé and I are in the process of getting married here this fall coming up & we knew from the very beginning that The Woodwinds would be the place where we would want to say I do before God! I was almost immediately in tears when I arrived. Upon leaving we received a complimentary bag with vendors, a specialty pasta sauce (that was super tasty) & they were very flexible with our payment options. Pictures truly do not do justice for the amazing grounds & the service we have received by Vanessa, ken and the rest of the team so far has been impecable! We are so sure and honored to have chosen them for our Big Day!!! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Wonderful setting for a beautiful wedding! Every details is handled with care and love. I often think the couple must be related to the WoodWinds team, Then I realize they, like us, put the couple first and will do anything within their power to insure the couple has an amazing wedding day! We love them so much we even had our daughter's wedding at Woodwinds in 2008! Scott was amazing then and now! The whole team was spectacular!
