From the moment we walked in to the October open house, we knew we wanted to host our second wedding here. The nostalgic feel, the professional and friendly staff, the amazing ambiance and delectable food not only made our wedding an event to remember, but also a party to brag about for years to come! Everyone who attended is still talking about how much fun it was and how amazing Willowdale is. We can't say enough about how accommodating the staff is/was to our needs and we truly appreciated it! Thank you!

Words cannot express how spectacular our wedding day was and it is all thanks to the incredibly hard working crew at the Willowdale Estate. From the sales team, the planning team, to the execution team on the big day itself, they were pure perfection. On a day where tensions can be high, Nichole and her team kept us all calm and on on time (which was a miracle). The property is absolutely exquisite and I cannot think of a more perfect choice to celebrate the greatest moment of our lives. I will treasure this special day and we are forever grateful to everyone at Willowdale for the hard work they put in and the wonderful wedding that we had.

My family and friends said our wedding was one of the best they've attended and I know that's because of Willowdale and their wonderful staff. The food is phenomenal, the staff are the best and the intimate mansion and beautiful grounds are perfection! They also were able to accommodate us last minute when our venue fell through, they saved our wedding. We highly recommend Willowdale!

I had been dreaming of getting married at Willowdale Estate for over five years now. When my fiancé and I got engaged, I knew this would be the dream wedding I had always hoped for. Just to solidify our decision, we toured many other mansion type unique properties, and not one of them compared to Willowdale Estate, in every aspect.
Willowdale has been beautifully restored and every detail of the physical property is flawless. Other mansions didn't even come close to the perfection that Willowdale Estate displays.
The staff is simply amazing- from the sales team to their planning department, to the waitstaff and everyone in-between- every single person we or our guests had contact with was blown away with their professionalism, attention, and care to everything.
We booked two years in advance, so you can only imagine how much build up there was to our wedding. We had contact with them all along the way, and never did more than a few days go by without me hearing from them in response to my tons of questions, or them sending essential planning info.
Once the day arrived all we had to do was sit back and let the magical day happen. I was not nervous about anything that day, even when it came to other vendors, because Willowdale had taken the reigns and made sure all was taken care of and smoothly run. And it was perfect. And we completely owe that to our wonderfully perfect planner Nichole Armano. She was my rock (aside from my fiancé) that day. She ran up and down and all around for me and my husband and guests. I swear, she might just be a magician :)
We, and our guests are still raving about the delicious food, awesome staff, and beautiful property-all of which combined made our wedding an absolute DREAM! I cannot say enough positive things about Willowdale Estate. I can't wait to go back for other functions they plan throughout the year.

It was a most magical day. Our daughter's wedding was simply the best day of our lives. A lot of work had gone into making it so. Choosing Willowdale was our first and best decision.

Their entire staff is extremely professional. All communications were smooth and timely.

The Food, the Venue, and the Service were over the top. Many guests stated that it was the best wedding that they had ever attended. Weeks later we are still reliving the event with our family and friends.

We do want to give special recognition to Alise Watson, our Event Planner/Coordinator. If you are lucky enough to get to work with Alise, we can guarantee it will be a pleasant experience. She is definitely a detail person and nothing (including unwanted guests) gets by her.

Again we give our highest recommendation to The Willowdale Estate and its staff and thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

Willowdale Estate is truly a wonderful venue to have a wedding. After attending one of their open houses I quickly fell in love with the stately mansion and gorgeous grounds and knew that any event put on by the fabulous staff would be unforgettable. Luckily that was very true for my wedding! We received so many compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue and amazing food - the ice cream sundaes, raw bar and homemake cookies were big hits!!! The Willowdale Staff were always there to answer any questions and help with planning from the time we booked our wedding, which was almost 15 months prior to our actual wedding date. Our wedding coordinator, Nichole, was wonderful - we can't thank her enough for working with us to ensure everything went so smoothly! I was truly blown away with how beautiful everything looked on our wedding day and I couldn't imagine having my wedding anywhere else!

Willowdale Estate is a truly magical place to have a wedding. My daughter was recently married there on a beautiful autumn day. The estate is gorgeous and there are a variety of backdrops, both indoors and out, for picture taking. Our guests were in awe of the natural beauty of the place and its interesting architecture. The tent was stunning. The food and service was excellent. The staff are true professionals. We felt that we were in good hands throughout the entire process. Everything ran very smoothly. I would highly recommend this venue for any event, rain or shine.

Our decision to have our wedding at Willowdale Estate was the best choice we made throughout the entire planning process - I honestly can't imagine getting married anywhere else! The grounds are absolutely stunning and so unique - from the gorgeous tent, to the exquisite courtyard gardens, to the ornate rooms within the mansion and beautiful exterior - everything about this venue is perfect. Our guests had the chance to experience each distinct area within the property throughout the day and night, with the convenience of having everything in one place, making it such a special evening for all. And in all my life, I've never heard so many people rave over wedding food - we chose the statler chicken and parmesan-crusted sole, and both were absolutely phenomenal!

The staff here is EXCELLENT. Brides are assigned a specific day-of coordinator 8 weeks out, and prior to that, you can email their generic mailbox with any and all questions you may have. I had quite a few questions especially at the beginning - and always received a timely, pleasant, and informative response. Our coordinator, Amy, was amazing - she handled everything so professionally, promptly, and always with a smile - and made me feel so comfortable and well taken care of throughout the entire process. The day of the wedding in the midst of all the craziness Amy quietly, but effectively, made sure that everything was taken care of - organizing the wedding party for the ceremony and entrances, setting up all of my ceremony and reception decor exactly to my liking, making sure my husband and I had a drink in hand, and even leaving cake and candy bags at our seats so that we didn't have to leave the dance floor. From start to finish, I knew we were in good hands with Amy and her incredible staff.

I can't speak highly enough of Willowdale Estate, and may be biased, but am certain that no other venue provides the level of service and overall experience as Willowdale does :)

Where do I even begin! Willowdale Estate is amazing. Not only is the mansion beautiful and one of a kind, but the staff is as well. From beginning to end all staff were nothing but amazing and accommodating making sure you have the wedding of your dreams, and we did. The food was fantastic, the location beautiful and our coordinator, Nichole, was unbelievable and worked so hard to make our wedding day perfect. We are still getting so many compliments from our guests on how much they loved the venue! I can't thank Willowdale Estate enough for everything they had done for us and I wish that we could do it all over again!!

I had my wedding at Willowdale on 9/13/14. I cannot say enough about this venue. From my first visit to Willowdale to the end of my Wedding day were absolutely amazing. The staff was prompt, professional, organized, kind, and did everything to make sure the day was perfect. Amy was our assigned wedding coordinator, she was so prompt and professional. She had an answer for all our needs and literally catered to our needs the whole day. Amy even thought to make sure my husband and I had cupcakes and cookies waiting for us, and drinks always filled. We didn't have to think about anything but our guests and having fun with them! The food was phenomenal, our guests are still raving. They said it was the best wedding food and food in general they have ever had at an event. We picked the statler chicken and the filet mignon. Thank you Willowdale Staff and Amy.
