The PERFECT Venue for our Wedding Day!

I am so glad we came across the Whetstone Center for our wedding venue. The land around the venue is gorgeous with so many options to choose from for your wedding ceremony spot. They have a lovely designated ceremony spot on the top of the hill with the lake backdrop and an amazing pergola. We however loved the backdrop near the green and growing vineyard, we were so lucky they had a portable pergola option which we chose and Hannah worked with us greatly to figure all of those logistic out. For us, the vineyard was the absolute best backdrop for our wedding ceremony. Of course it was a bonus that they had the indoor ceremony chapel area in case of rain which we just nearly beat! There’s also plenty of gorgeous outdoor photo backdrops to choose from - from the vineyard, lots of greenery and "nature" around, a driveway encompassed with trees, corn crops on the side of their land, and of course the gorgeous lake on their newly constructed deck! (Lake background was our favorite!)

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!

The Whetstone is the most beautiful, elegant and fairly priced wedding venue my husband and I came across, not only did we receive the most amazing service from the Coordinator Makenzie, who is by far the most down to Earth, kind hearted person I have ever met! We utilized all three buildings that The Whetstone offers, 1 to get ready in, 1 to get married in and of course one to have our reception in! All three were so beautifully kept and the perfect amount of space! The Reception area is so accommodating with the huge kitchen space for our vendor and a separate bar area, allowing our guests to not feel stuck in one room! The scenery outside is breathtaking, so many opportunities to get pictures that you will cherish for a lifetime! If I did one thing right is was using The Whetstone to host one of the most special days of my life!

The perfect venue!

I first came across this venue 4 years ago when we first got engaged and fell instantly in love. Hannah was so easy to get along with and answered all of our questions(so sad she is leaving!) from the very start of our start to the day of wedding we had butterflies in our stomachs about this venue. The beauty that you get from the venue it’s self to the different spots for photos or having a moment with your spouse after i do, they offer it! A billion and one times I would choose this venue again! If you want to find a venue that allows you to do that. Pick this venue. We can’t wait to have many celebrations here in the future ♥️

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...
