Blown away!

This place is gorgeous! A photographers dream. The amount of work Heidi puts into all of the landscaping and flowers is truly amazing. Not only that, she pays attention to every little detail when setting up as well. There is so much decor to choose from and use as well. Heidi was kind, helpful, and accommodating as well. Couldn't have asked for a better venue or vendor!

Gorgeous and spacious!

Heidi is a wonderfully gracious and helpful owner of Winding Gardens. She is very professional, attentive to detail, and committed to making a wonderful day easily achievable for you. I have watched the venue develop since its inception over a decade ago and it just gets better and better every time I come back--the hedge maze, the water features, the bridal facilities, all of it! My favorite aspect about this venue is how well maintained the space is--the hedges are grown above your head and well trimmed, the central water fountain is beautiful, and the landscaping is impeccable. I highly recommend booking at Winding Path Gardens for your event.

I am the mother of 5 daughters.My family and I have experienced all the same struggles as eveyone else, I am so blessed because our chaos has always worked and we are open to change and learning. My husband, Bob, is a professional install landscaper and one of my many disciplines is horticulture. So when my husband and I get together we are creative. Hence, our strength in the venue business is gardens.

We got into weddings after we were asked by our oldest daughter, to make her a place to get married. We did just that. It was so stunning that we got asked by all sorts of people if they could use it. After much thought and more daughters getting engaged (lol), we decided to build an actual venue at our plant nursery location because of its easy access right off Highway 9.(Fyi,we have had to rent venues too. Not all our girls were married here)

I get my joy from my grandchildren and helping people create their visions. My girls often bring me ideas off pintrest to see if I can help them duplicate a project. Pintrest has been a double edged sword for me. There are so many good Ideas, how do how to choose and stay focused? Exploring what is possible, practical, and effective is one of my strengths

I have had an intall landscaping company for over 20 years. I love the outdoors.I love fly fishing, hunting and growing things.

I am the father of five girls. My wife and I have been asked by our girls, on several occations, to help them create something they saw on pintrest. My wife says I am good at creating and finding solutions. She is great too. I guess this was learned after corralling five little girls and now 14 grandkids!

My wife is great with color and putting things together. We are able to compliement each other on our strengths. We have been pretty good at arranging and setting up big events.
