I feel like no review could do justice to how amazing the Windmill Winery is! Out of all of our vendors and our whole planning process, the Windmill Winery stands out so much as the best decision we made. I can't even start to describe how easy and wonderful the entire planning process was, I feel like I had zero stress the entire time because the team was so wonderful. We had our wedding at the Lakehouse on 9/22/18 and it was absolutely perfect. When we first went to an open house here a little over a year ago we already had pretty much made our mind up on a different venue however thought we would do our due diligence and check it out before committing to our first choice after touring several venues around Phoenix. When we arrived we were blown away by how beautiful the property was as well as how fantastic all the packaged vendor options are (especially Kiss the Chef who we went with for catering). We immediately fell in love however right off the bat assumed there is no way we could afford to host our wedding at this nice of a venue, then were completely shocked to learn the same date with the same package for our 120 person guest count would actually run us a full $6000 less than our original venue which paled in comparison. I am still in awe of how above and beyond our included day of coordinator Lisa was, she truly thought of everything and walked us through the whole process. She would even email me back at odd times like Saturday nights, I can't express how amazing/kind/organized she was and our wedding could not have been nearly as well planned and executed without her. The Lakehouse was the perfect size for our wedding guest count, the food was amazing, we could even add in a photo booth and beer donkey which were a huge hit with all our guests. The shuttle service to and from the local hotel was also amazing because guests didn't have to worry about parking or getting a ride home. Absolutely beautiful wedding venue with even more fantastic staff!Sent on 10/03/2018

Brittany · Getting married on 11/16/2019
My husband and I had looked at a lot of different venues and knew that we didn't want the tradition church, golf resort, or inner city venue. We were starting to get a little discouraged because that is a lot of what you get in the Phoenix area. We came across a picture of the Windmill Winery online and decided to make the trip out for one of their bridal open houses. We live on the very west side of Phoenix so about half way there we were questioning our decision to ever head out there. Although when we arrived it was completely perfect and exactly what we were looking and waiting for. No busy streets, people, or noises; and the vintage country feel could not have embodied the both of us any better. I of course loved it right away but was even more surpised of how excited my husband was, because he of course wasn't thrilled about spending his ESPN time doing wedding things. We both knew right away that we would be getting married there, and uncertainties of the drive had almost turned into a positive. Besides the venue appearance itself the staff and owners were also the main reason we were so excited to be a part of the Windmill. They were all so friendly, down to earth, and detail oriented people. They were right on top of everything and genuinely seemed to enjoy helping us out and being a part of our big day! The day of was so easy going and organized, they set up and breakdown everything, so we didn't have to worry about a thing. The entire ceremony and reception was organized and so well run that we were able to not worry or wonder about anything, everything flowed smoothly from one thing to the next and everyone had a great time. Our flowers also turned out better than any picture or magazine I had brought in to show her, and everybody still talks the most about how beautiful they were. Thank you again to the Windmill and their staff for the most beautiful and wonderful day of our lives!!Sent on 04/11/2011

Paradise in the Desert
Windmill Winery was a wonderful choice for our Wedding. There is nothing that we would change about the venue, the vendors, the staff or the planning of the day itself.Sent on 06/10/2019
About a year before our wedding my fiance (now wife) and I began a search for our wedding venue. The Windmill Winery may have been the 6th or 7th venue we had seen. The pier, which is the ceremony site on the Lake House side of the property, was the ideal spot for our ceremony. Of course we then had to see the rest of the property but I was nearly sold already. So long story short, we were convinced by the venue and the staff that this is where or wedding should take place.
In the passing months Karen (our coordinator) was hugely helpful in making sure that everything that we needed to do was being done in plenty of time.
When the big day arrived everything they said they would do was done. Welcoming our guests, coordinating the ceremony walk in, keeping in touch with the vendors and making sure wishes were being executed by the vendors. All this in a seamless manner.
A total 5 star experience from day 1 to wedding day itself. We'd have no hesitation in recommending The Lake House at the Windmill Winery to any couple looking for a their Wedding venue. We are also excited that it is a venue we can keep visiting long after with the events the Winery puts on each week.

This Venue is a Bride's Dream
All I can really say is WOW. This venue really is a bride's dream location! I had my wedding at the Big Barn location and it was more amazing than I could have ever dreamed it could be. The venue is gorgeous! But even more than that, the staff and vendors were so friendly and helpful, especially our wedding coordinator! We had a wedding party of 17 people (not including me or my husband). It no doubt could have been chaotic but she handled it so well and kept everything flowing on time. There is no way we could have pulled it off without her! From the moment we arrived on property, to our first look, to the ceremony and then to dancing the night away, our entire day was a dream! Looking back, there is no other venue we could have chosen that would have been a better fit for us!Sent on 04/26/2019

Beautiful Experience, Wonderful Day!!!
I cannot say enough good things about this venue. The value you get for the price is unsurpassable and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. Added bonus was the all-inclusive feature of catering, DJ and cake being part of the package. There are several vendors to choose from in each category and everything is absolutely amazing. We received tons of compliments from our guests and everyone had a fabulous time. Our Event Coordinator, Karen, helped to ensure that everything went absolutely smooth and as planned...there were no hidden surprises taking away from the happiness and beauty of the day! Thank you to the entire Windmill Winery staff and this place is a definite recommend!!! With love, Justin & Kim ThelenSent on 02/06/2019

The most amazing wedding venue EVER!
My husband and I just had the opportunity to have our wedding at the Windmill Winery. This wedding venue is hands down the best venue that I have ever been to! It is so beautiful and so unique! You would not know that it is in Arizona. We had our wedding in the big barn and it was just out of a dream. It was everything I had in mind for our wedding and even more. I would get married there every year if I could! The grounds are beautiful and can really be changed to your personal style. They make the wedding process SO easy and SO fun! We were introduced to so many amazing vendors through the process of having our wedding at the Windmill. It really was my dream come true!Sent on 01/20/2019

It is the most PERFECT venue for any wedding, special celebration, company party etc. My daughter got married at the Lake House in Nov. 2018. Shauna Fadden and the rest of her crew were the BEST!!! My daughter and new Son-in-Law said it was their dream wedding. That is all that I needed to hear!!! Make your "dream wedding" memories, and book at the Windmill Winery in Florence Arizona. You will be glad you did!!Sent on 11/26/2018

Best day of my life
After working in the hospitality industry, I did not have much desire to plan my own wedding however it was important for us to celebrate our union with close family and friends. Choosing the Windmill Winery was absolutely the best decision for us. I love that they have inclusive packages and our meeting planner, Karen, was amazing!! Karen was there for every bit of the day and with the planning process she offered great recommendations and advice. We would choose this venue again and again. Everything from the natural, beautiful, and intimate ambiance to our up beat and fun DJ, it was truly a day we will remember forever.Sent on 01/22/2019
Dominique · Married on 09/22/2018
We had our wedding at The Windmill Winery on 9/22/18 in the “Big Barn” and it was absolutely fabulous!! They make the planning process so easy, but most importantly fun! Jordan helped us book our venue and date the very first time we visited the Winery, it was absolutely stunning and we knew this was where we wanted to get married. Jordan was such a joy to work with I will never forget her kindness and positivity and she wasn’t even our wedding planner! Next we had the privilege of working with Shauna, who was our wedding coordinator and she was an absolute rockstar! She was helpful, diligent, organized and knowledgeable as we ironed out the details of our day! Seriously it was so easy! The day of our wedding she was right there the whole day for anything we needed and kept things running smoothly even when plans changed or the timeline went haywire she made it look effortless! I’m seriously so greatful for you Shauna!! When you book with the Winery included in the price are 3 package vendors your caterer, DJ, and cake which is the best value we found of any other venues we toured. Picking our packaged vendors and attending the bridal open houses was so much fun and it is exactly what you think wedding planning should be, only better! I was so grateful to not have to run around and find all of my own vendors it was a one stop shop! We chose Kiss the Chef Catering, Elegant Entertainment (Joel Gibbs) and Piece of Cake. They were all fantastic and they all work so well together! It ran like a well oiled machine! I have received so many compliments from my guests about our venue and vendors, my only wish is that I could relive this day and enjoy it more, it seriously went by so fast! I wish I had more time to soak it all in! Choosing the Windmill Winery was the best decision we made for our wedding! Hands down the best customer service and professionalism we found at any venue! Thank you for helping us plan the wedding of our dreams and making the process so fun!!!Sent on 10/05/2018

For us there were no other venues that captured country in such an elegant way. The Winery is a beautiful and spacious property with so much unique charm.
We were just as impressed with our experience with the Winery staff. Shauna was our coordinator. I’ll be forever grateful to her for keeping our stress minimal, and making our vision a priority.
I would highly recommend the Winery to any future Mr. and Mrs.

This venue is beautiful! We chose the big barn for the wedding and it was perfect. We started with Jordan in sales who worked with us to make sure everything was what we wanted. We had Daleen and Lisa for our coordinators. They think of things that you don't even think about and they go over all of the details with you to make sure you are getting the wedding you've always wanted. They went above and beyond to work with us and make the wedding be everything the bride dreamed of. From the planning to rehearsal to the wedding they make you feel like your wedding is their top priority. Their attention to detail is amazing. The bride's vision of her wedding truly came to life. On the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly with Lisa coordinating. Lisa seemed to be everywhere at once taking care of every little detail. It was like magic. We had the horse and carriage bring the bride to the ceremony and then take the bride and groom away after the ceremony. After that the horse and carriage were available to all of the guests for a ride around the property. Everyone loved it! The reception in the barn with all the string lights was beautiful. I seriously cannot say enough good things about the Windmill Winery and their team. If you are looking for a place for your wedding you will be extremely happy with them. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much they loved the wedding and the venue. What a perfect day! You won't be disappointed if you choose the Windmill Winery. I added a few pictures of things we loved. But we loved everything so if you look at their website pictures that is exactly what you get - a beautiful place to have the wedding of your dreams!Sent on 01/09/2018

My husband and I got married in the Big Barn on 12/10/17! The Windmill Winery made it so easy for us to have the most amazing wedding. All of our guests were blown away by this piece of paradise in the desert. The beautiful views are self-explanatory, as well as the kind staff and event coordinators. Shauna, our event coordinator in particular, was an amazing help, and made our night perfect. All of the vendors we chose from were excellent, and work so seamlessly together. Elina's Catering in particular was out of this world. Chef Peter did not miss a beat and was on top of everything, even if it was a drunk friend nearly spilling wine on the bride! Would absolutely recommend this venue to ANYONE, as it was the best decision we could have possibly made.Sent on 12/14/2017

My husband and I created our wedding day at the Windmill and it could NOT have gone any better. Everyone says that "things will go wrong; you have to just go with the flow." But I kid you not, absolutely NOTHING went wrong. I couldn't have had better staffing from the Windmill as well as the contractors that they go thru for food, music, and flowers (everyone, literally EVERYONE raved about how good the food was ;)). It was a one-stop (stress free) shop that made planning a destination wedding so fun and relaxing. Although its an hour drive out in the middle of nowhere, the landscape and picture opportunities throughout the breathtaking barn, ceremony sites, yard games, beer burro and wines will never be topped in my mind! It was the most beautiful fairy tale place for our wedding!Sent on 01/20/2018
From Jordan introducing us to the Windmill Winery as we were touring venues, to Karen becoming our wedding coordinator, everything went fantastic! Jordan was the sweetest and nicest person to first put a face to our venue. She seemed just as excited about my wedding as I did - she also was always available to call/text on little details that popped into my head throughout the days (and nights).
Karen walked us through our wedding process starting 6 months before the wedding. She was on top of EVERYTHING! I didn't need to worry about one thing except picking what I wanted. She made the wedding of our dreams happen and she was so extremely nice to work with. The day of the wedding, I barely saw her, but throughout the day, Karen and her minions made our day the smoothest and most perfect day. I can't thank everyone enough!

I had my wedding this past weekend at the Windmill Winery. I was so beyond happy with how it turned out! Everything went as planned, and we had so much support along the way. Our coordinator, Shauna, was absolutely amazing. They helped us with set up and turning on our electric candles, helping us stay on schedule, and making us feel so special on our special day! I seriously cannot thank the Windmill enough!! We had a blast, and I would recommend them over and over again!!!!Sent on 10/17/2017

My husband and I were just recently married at The Windmill on September 22. Throughout the whole process, the venue was easy to work with and provided us with basically everything we needed from start to finish. We got a wedding planner about 6 months prior to our wedding (Karen Durham) and she was AMAZING. She answered all questions in a timely manner and worked with me on requests that I didn't think were doable. The bridal open houses they provide are great, as you can meet all the vendors included and then choose from there. You not only get to meet them, but taste the food and get a feel for what works best for your day. The venue was clean and looked perfect the day of our wedding. We also had our rehearsal dinner on site in their pavilion located outside the wine tasting room. The coordinator for this was so helpful and made this process super easy as well. They had live music that was provided at no additional charge. I can't say enough good things about this place. Don't be alarmed by the drive out there, as when you arrive, it's like you're in a whole different place; simply beautiful! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a great venue for their upcoming wedding.Sent on 10/11/2017

The Windmill Winery made our wedding day absolutely perfect!! It is definitely a drive out there but so worth it!!! All of our guests talked about how beautiful it was and they could understand why we chose this location for our special day. Our wedding coordinator was great to work with but she had a last minute emergency the day of our wedding and couldn't be there but the Winery had someone (one of the owners) fill in before I even knew about anything and nothing ever skipped a beat. Everything ran so smoothly I literally didn't have to worry about a thing. I was originally worried about the accommodations because of the one hotel in town but everything actually worked out perfectly!! Also, they made my life so easy by offering a package that included Caterer, Cake, and DJ (all of them were amazing also). The Windmill Winery was an amazing venue and I would 100% recommend anyone looking for the perfect venue to check them out!!!Sent on 05/19/2017
