The PERFECT Venue for our Wedding Day!
The inside of the reception venue was AMAZING. We were sold as soon as we walked in to see beautiful red brick and wooden beams, turned the corner and saw the wall of bay windows looking over the lake. We couldn’t have found a more perfect spot. It held all 110 of our guests just fine and still had a great dance floor. We enjoyed having the bar room separate as well. Then having the cornhole boards during cocktail hour was a cool perk too!
Working with Hannah was amazing! I can't say enough good things about her. She was always happy, and helpful. Anytime I would text or email her she responded quickly and with great advice and ideas. I would and DO recommend the Whetstone Center to EVERYONE. So thankful we had the perfect venue for our special day.
The most AMAZING Venue in NEO!

Whetstone Center is a beautiful venue with an intimate feel - perfect for a romantic wedding outdoors or in the chapel. The reception hall is updated throughout and sits right over the Lake for a gorgeous view while celebrating with family and friends. Whetstone is a family-owned business in a quiet area... I highly recommend this charming venue for your next event.
Excellent facility to cater out of. Great people to work with.
