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.Sent on 05/14/2018
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.

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!Sent on 03/03/2019

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!
