From the time we stepped into Willowdale for the first time we knew it was the only place we wanted to have our wedding, and it couldn't have been a better experience. Yes, the grounds, venue, and atmosphere are stunning, but we feel we owe most of this to the staff. From sales, to our planner Kelly, to all of the servers, bartenders, chefs and grounds crew, we encountered nothing but extraordinary people and service. They were an absolute pleasure to work with, and made planning our wedding day an enjoyable, and most importantly, fun experience. Our friends and family members who were able to meet those involved always made it a point to say how wonderful they were and how absolutely beautiful and unique the venue is. The combination of the charm and character of Willowdale and the pure class of the staff created a magical wedding day that was far beyond anything we could have imagined. We also have to make a special note about the food - from the hors d'oeuvres to the main course and unique variety of desserts - which were all absolutely incredible, and that our guests could not stop speaking about. Thank you to everyone at Willowdale for making our wedding day such a wonderful and memorable experience.

Our wedding at Willowdale was absolutely perfect! We had the ceremony and the reception on site and everything went so smoothly thanks to our event coordinator Nichole (who was included in the wedding package) who really went above and beyond for us. The staff is so accommodating, friendly and organized. Even our vendors felt welcome and at ease. The food is UNBELIEVABLE- not just "wedding good"- I mean one of the best meals I have ever had, and so many of my guests felt the same way. The mansion itself feels like home, decorated beautifully. The bridal suite is gorgeous and other venues that we looked at there is an equally beautiful grooms' suite AND and extra suite for family members who come early. The only caution is that if you plan a wedding that is not within their tent season, then the party cap is 120 people- That was a little tough for us but it all worked out in the end. They hold FREE social events throughout the year to tour the campus and taste the food and wine so you really know what you are getting into before you get there. I went to 3 of them because I am obsessed with their chocolate chip cookies. You will be too.

We had a fantastic reception at Willowdale Estate! The venue itself is beautiful. If you are hosting a winter/autumn event, it is a guaranteed gorgeous backdrop. From beginning to end the process was easy, which was endlessly valuable to us. Lines of communication were open, clear and our wedding coordinator was the eye of the storm. The general staff were friendly and helpful the night of, adding to the warmth of an already great night. Coordination of set-up and break-down was seamless, also something we are grateful for. Our guests have not stopped commenting on how good the food was. Over all we cannot say enough good things about our experience there! I should add, the cookies are phenomenal, truly.

We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding day! Willowdale Estate was the perfect venue for us - we live in Texas, but wanted to get married back at home where our families live. Willowdale accommodated our needs in every way - from meeting with our families at times that we could not be there to setting up a private food tasting because we could not make it to the group event. They think of everything at this place! And if there is something that you want that they don't offer (which really is not very much), they really listen to your suggestions and help figure out a solution. Our wedding day went so smoothly, our vision was executed perfectly by our wedding coordinator, Courtney, and our guests could not stop raving about the beauty of the venue and the food!

Our wedding at Willowdale Estate was absolutely amazing. First, the sales team was great. We worked with Belinda. She was very informative and made us feel like we were already a part of the Willowdale family.
We chose Willowdale for a few reasons. 1. It is gorgeous, inside and out; If you are lucky enough to book an event while they have the tent and courtyard in use, you won't be sorry. It was the best decision we've made. 2. Everything is in one place; catering, bridal and groom suits for getting ready, ceremony, and reception. 3. The outstanding service; the planning services were out of this world. If you have a chance to work with Monique, she is the best (young, vibrant personality and organized)!
The planning services made planning our wedding fun. We recommend spending the extra money to use the Willowdale planning services.
We really couldn't have asked for a better day. Everything went perfectly. Everything was beautiful. The food was to die for. Everyone was beyond thrilled :) Best. Wedding. Ever.

Willowdale was an absolute fairytale! As soon as we saw it, we knew it was the venue for us! The estate is simply stunning - even in the torrential downpour on the day of our wedding! Everyone there is so knowledgeable and friendly, making the experience of planning a wedding more manageable and less stressful. Our event coordinator Courtney was equally fabulous! She helped coordinate details before the wedding, answered all my frantic email questions, accommodated many last minute changes, and was our go-to person during the wedding itself. We didn't have to worry about a thing because Courtney knew exactly what needed to be done. All we had to do was show up and have fun! The food, catered by Willowdale, was also exceptional, and all of our guests told us they truly enjoyed the entire night. We can't say enough about how much we love Willowdale and wish we could just relive our wedding again and again!

We had the most amazing wedding weekend this October 2016, and we owe it to the beautiful Willowdale Estate and our wonderful wedding planner, Monique! We cannot recommend Willowdale enough! The venue is absolutely pristine, set in a beautiful state park. On top of having the most beautiful landscapes, the mansion itself is complete with a classy bridal suite, a groom's suite, the most beautiful glass ceiling sun room, an exquisite courtyard, and lots of unique little spaces to explore within the estate. As if it couldn't get any better, the food was spectacular and the servers were so attentive and friendly. We had the best, most beautiful weekend we could have imagined, and our guests have been raving about the venue ever since!

If you have an event at Willowdale Estate, we highly recommend Monique! She was so patient with us throughout the whole planning process, and she made our lives so much easier with her thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and expertise. We could not imagine having planned our wedding without her. She was always positive and upbeat, making us feel at ease. She is the best!

I cannot say enough about the Willowdale Estate and its staff. For myself and my now wife we could not be happier with the service, quality, and professionalism that Nichole and the rest of the Willowdale staff showed us on the day of our ceremony and throughout the entire process. Nichole was there for us before I even knew we needed something, and from what I understand somehow there was always someone available for anything our guests needed. Our day started crazy with our shuttle bus coming 2 hours late, and many people stuck in traffic!!! You can imagine how chaotic we thought things were going to be. BUT in our moment of panic when we realized that we had to push our ceremony back an hour, and switch the cocktail hour to BEFORE the ceremony, Nichole, with a permanent smile on her face, said, "Ok". With all of this, our guests had nothing but positive things to say about how seamlessly the entire event went with all the beauty and love that anyone could ever imagine on this day. It was truly magical. I highly recommend Willowdale Estate for your event. They've got this figured out, so you won't be let down. We couldn't be happier.

Willowdale Estate made every dream I had for my wedding come true! When we went to visit the first time, we felt very welcomed. Everyone we interacted with was professional and kind. The venue itself is gorgeous. There are so many photo opportunities in the building and outside of it - my photos are absolutely breathtaking! The food is so good - it tastes more like what you would expect from a 5 star restaurant, not a wedding venue! Yes, Willowdale is expensive, but it is so worth every penny. My wedding coordinator was there the day of to help us navigate through each little thing, and I was so glad to have her there to guide us! The day turned out to be exactly what I had imagined, so I couldn't be happier with Willowdale! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
