    We LOVED the Whetstone Center for our winter wedding!!


    The Whetstone Center was the perfect fit for our winter wedding! The moment I walked into the venue, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for; The beautiful wall of windows with the water view was breathtaking! The venue is a blank slate to make it your absolute dream wedding! You can also get in the day before to decorate if you book the whole weekend which was a must for me! We also held our rehearsal dinner here as well. Hannah was a breath of fresh air in all of the wedding planning, she was so prompt and professional! I highly recommend the Whetstone Center for your wedding or parties!

    Whetstone Center's reply:

    Wow Savanna! Thank you SO much. This truly means a lot and I am so glad you enjoyed your time at Whetstone. You were great to work with as well and am so happy for you and Jack. :)

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.
