My husband and I got married on November 15, 2015 at the Westwood. We had almost a two year engagement so we booked our venue fairly early on. The Westwood is very affordable at the same time providing high quality service. Cathy was with us from the very beginning and was always responsive and honest. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Everyone said everything comes together and they were right! They worked with all of our vendors to ensure everything was set up the way I had outlined it. Joe the maitre'd was very helpful. We found out right before the ceremony that we could not have dancing on the clouds do to the floor (We changed from the upstairs ballroom to the main ballroom) and I was so upset. However, Joe worked quickly with my DJ and lighting guy and came up with an idea to use the clouds by the sundae bar and it was a hit! Cathy came to me on the day of our wedding, I did not know she would be there and hugged me. I thanked her and I really met it. The Westwood exceeded our expectations on so many levels. The food and ambiance were everything I was hoping for and almost 3 months later our guests are still raving about the food. Thank you Cathy, Joe and The Westwood for giving me and my husband the wedding of our dreams. I would highly recommend this venue to future brides.

From the moment we walked through the doors and spoke to the staff, we knew The Westwood was where we wanted to hold our wedding reception. Each of the available rooms is beautiful, and the food was delicious. Members of our family have Celiac disease and must have gluten-free meals. Cross contamination can be a major issue, but the Westwood was extremely careful and made sure everyone was able to enjoy each course. Everything the entire evening met or exceeded our expectations, and we cannot recommend The Westwood enough for any event you may have.

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!!
