This is my second event that I have planned at the Westwood and I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy. She's amazing, organized and professional. I am a wedding planner who have been in the business for over 17 years. I worked with Cathy on a wedding on August 2nd and Cathy and the staff at the Westwood were beyond amazing.

SPECIAL PRAISES and KUDOS should go to the Maitre'D, Betty who was beyond amazing. She was on top of every detail and so attentive not only to the bride and groom but to all their guests. Most of the guests attending the wedding were in the hospitality industry themselves and they all complimented on how wonderful Betty was, the food was delicious and fresh and the staff were friendly and attentive.

I highly recommend this venue and hope my company and I have the pleasure of working with Cathy and her staff at The Westwood!

I can not begin to explain how WONDERFUL our entire experience was with The Westwood. I actually had another appointment with a different venue but once we met with Cathy and saw the venue...it was a no-brainer. Our intuitions were right! Throughout the entire interaction, appointment, conversation with Cathy I literally felt like I was the only bride she was working with. I mean, every time I called, even if I had to leave a message, she was ALWAYS prompt to return my calls. I almost couldn't believe she had other parties and events booked!!!! Her professionalism, personality, sweet demeanor just floored us every time. EVEN OUR KIDS FELL IN LOVE WITH HER. This was no average or mediocre customer service about this 7 month experience. She just went above and beyond every single time. From the receptionist to the maître de l'événement. Fabulous...just fabulous!!!! Anywhere else you will pay DOUBLE and not even have as wonderful experience as you will at The Westwood. Oh and not to mention THE FOOOOOD is delicious!!!! OMG. I was happy a couple of people didn't show because we took their entrees home and were able to enjoy their main course all over again. I have already recommended two newly engaged friends to use The Westwood as their wedding venue...I am positive these lovely people only know how to make everything sheer perfection!!!!

We had our wedding party on January 31st. The staff at the Westwood went above and beyond in every capacity. There are not enough words to describe how helpful, accommodating, and all around great Joe the maître d was leading up to and at our party. All of our guests raved about the food and the service was impeccable. I can not recommend the Westwood highly enough. We all had such a great time! It was perfect.

We were 100% pleased with the services we received at the Westwood. From start to finish, everything was wonderful. Event planner, Cathy, was responsive to emails and very accommodating to our requests. Some places we had contacted did not even return a single email or phone call. Cathy would typically get back to me 48 hours or less every single time.

The Westwood staff dealt with the Photo Booth vendor and DJ during set up so we would not have to. Once we arrived, I was introduced to the maitre'd, Joe, and he was with us for the entire night. Ushering people from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception and everything was done in an efficient, timely manner. I also was assigned another staff member to help with anything my husband and I specifically may have needed i.e. bringing us food, drinks, helping with organizing bridal party, etc, while Joe was managing the entire event. Wherever I turned she was right there or nearby to help. The Westwood knows what they are doing which is why they have been in business for so long. The reception room was set up beautifully. Food was great. Unfortunately, due to my nerves and excitement, I didn't really have the stomach to eat much. But family and friends raved about the food, and what I did eat was very good. We went with a station wedding and everyone loved being able to walk around and choose what they want.
Another tidbit: Wedding cake is included in the cost, so I did not have to research other bakeries to bring in one. Their pricing is very reasonable, which was necessary for us since we had a budget.

Two events can be held at the same time, but the staff makes sure you do not collide with the other party.

The only downside is the outdoor grounds. We knew this when booking, but don't expect to take many outdoor photos there. They have a small gazebo next to the venue, but the venue itself is located on a main road. We took pictures elsewhere.

I would HIGHLY recommend the Westwood!!

For any bride out there looking for a venue that is willing to bend of backwards to make your day extra special - This is the place to go.

As soon as we walked in, we knew this venue was different. Better then any other venue we had seen. We visited 23 venues prior to visiting The Westwood. Needless to say, I am a picky bride. From the beginning, Cindy was spectacular in helping us plan our day. She spent an hour and half extra with us just on our initial day of meeting. She never rushed us, and answered any question that we had. The prices here are amazing for the value of food and service that we received.

Our wedding took place in the downstairs ballroom, which is large and well lighted. Cindy even walked us through their kitchen to show us how clean their facilities are. From Day One, the feeling we got from Cindy and the staff was that it was their mission to ensure that everything went perfectly for us.

I was definitely a needy bride - constantly e-mailing and calling with random questions. Cindy was ALWAYS quick to respond. I think the longest I had to wait was 24 hours for a response. Which is huge for a stressed out bride!

The day of the wedding went better then I could have ever dreamed. The food was delicious. It is now almost a month after our wedding and our guests still call us to tell us how good the food was. Joe, our Maitre'D and Manuela, our wedding attendant, made sure that our day went smoothly and that myself and my husband never wanted a thing. Joe kept everything on schedule.

The ballroom looked beautiful. The staff went above and beyond setting up the tables, serving the food, and ensuring that all of our guests were satisfied. I did not hear a single complaint from any of my guests.

I would HIGHLY recommend The Westwood to any bride looking for a wonderful venue. THANK YOU for everything you did to help our day go smoothly.

The Westwood made our reception flawless! From our initial meeting, Cathy helped us create our dream. I have severe food allergies and did not have to worry at all about the food which is a big deal. The food was delicious. Our maitre'd was with us the whole night and made us feel very comfortable. The bridal attendant even helped tie my bustle. Planning with them was very easy and straightforward, no catches. Our cake came from an outside bakery through the Westwood with our package. We felt welcome and respect we the entire process. We love the Westwood!

I'm the type of bride that researches for hours, looking for the perfect place. I had emailed about 12 venues and actually visited about 4 of them. Stepping into the Westwood had already felt like the place was something special. However, what set everything apart was talking to the staff.

Something that drove me nuts about most of the venues we saw was the attitude of "We know weddings. Here's what you want for yours." The Westwood, on the other hand, was immediately like, "What do you have in mind? How can we make your day come true?" The Westwood staff prides itself on it's service driven attitude and years of experience. This sense of confidence, yet humility is priceless on a wedding day. They were also the best "one stop shop" I could find. They had a bakery that would take care of my cake. They had an in house florist, who would take care of centerpieces too. They also had an amazing catering staff!

For the day of my wedding, everything went off without a hitch. I had a personal attendant who made 150% sure I was fed, relaxed, and just content with everything. She helped carry my train, clean off my dress when I accidentally stepped on the train, and just kept me calm through everything. When my DJ and photobooth had entered the venue, I didn't even need to really interact with them to set them up. The Westwood staff took care of all of the logistics-- feeding them and being simply above and beyond in control in all of the ways I couldn't be. Also, the food was something every guest raved about for hours and weeks after. Did I mention I got to eat, which is usually unheard of? The Westwood staff not only made sure I was very well fed but that I could grab leftovers in case I missed my meal!

The Westwood helped me host the event exactly the way that my husband and I had envisioned-- a huge incredibly fun party filled with happiness, laughter, dancing, awesome food, and above all else love.
