We honestly cannot give Winding Path Gardens enough good feedback. The setting for our wedding was second to none. So many of our guests were blown away by the beauty of the area. The owners, Heidi and Bob were nothing short of amazing in making sure that we had anything and everything we needed to pulI off our day! We highly recommend them for your wedding! It was such and amazing place! They also do a pumpkin patch in the fall we will be definitely bringing our babies there!Sent on 04/01/2017

Bob and Heidi are some of the nicest people I've met. They go above and beyond to make sure your special day is everything you ever dreamed it would be. Their facility is so beautiful you could get away without decorating and no one would even notice. Everyone that looked at my pictures from my wedding day wanted to know where because the background is SO pretty!Sent on 03/17/2017

Bod and Heidi were a huge help in making our wedding day perfect. They have transformed their property into an absolutely beautiful venue which they have priced very reasonably. My husband and I selected a wedding date, and about a month later we had to change the date. Heidi was helpful and flexible in making that happen for us and it all worked out seamlessly. The property is beautiful and very well managed. They do everything they can to customize the venue features, tables, and chairs just how you like them on the big day before you even arrive.Sent on 09/25/2015
The only downside that we encountered was that the groomsmen do not have a space of their own aside from a shed. Our wedding was on a VERY hot day and it would have been really lovely if they had a place to go to cool down other than taking turns in the bridal area. Hopefully, that is a feature that they will add-on eventually!
Overall, we had a really great experience. The couple who owns Winding Path is very friendly and helpful. They are very straight forward about their pricing, features, and expectations for your guests. I would highly recommend this venue.
