    Quality at a fair price

    When comparing this venue to our other options, the Woodwinds definitely shined above the rest. We were able to get so much for our money, leaving us quite a bit of financial flexibility for the rest of our vendor choices. However, the thing that really won us over was not the money. It was the staff. Vanessa is such a delight and personable. Just remembering how comfortable we felt with her during our tour, really made the decision an easy one. I look forward to the exception of 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!
