  • Waldenwoods is a lovely place to get married especially with the reception hall and the lake out front. However, I had major difficulties with with some behind the scenes work. Although it was promised to us that there would be no one on the lake during our ceremony, there was a fishing boat. There were also other people in our professional pictures because someone they got through the imaginary employee standing there. My mom had to frequently remind the staff to fill the coffee pots throughout the evening, I never received the cake that I requested, and most frustrating, we never received contact from Waldenwoods leading up to the wedding. We had to contact them for our final details meeting. No one ever offered to help us or check in with us during our decorating time either. When I had a question, I had to waste my time going in search of them. I also had a problem with a vendor later that night and since the wedding coordinator had disappeared by then (which I had no clue... Read more

  • Waldenwoods was all around good. They seemed really organized there. There were a few things that could have been better. The setting was beautiful and the reception venue was really nice. The bridal room, although given to me at a discounted price, was absolutely hot, my hair was straight by the time the ceremony started. The o'devours were cold by the time everyone got inside after the ceremony was over. The buffet style food was not too hot. And our top of our cake was placed in a box, no indication that there was cake in there, had fallen to one side of the box. And other pieces or clumps of the cake were placed in a container in a messy way. Everyone (employees) we all very nice and welcoming but there were just a few gliches.

  • When I think back on my wedding day, the memory is ruined at the thought of the hassle Waldenwoods put me and my husband through. We LOVED the location and the venue is beautiful. We gave a deposit and then realized four months before the wedding that they misquoted us by $5000.00!!! So you can imagine coming up with an additional $5000.00 on top of everything we were already saving. We had to call and schedule our own final consult and their excuse was that they were understaffed therefore they were behind. This is unacceptable. When you are spending a large portion of your annual income on one evening that rests in the hands of a rude manager. The reception was great even with the mediocre food. The following day I received a call from Waldenwoods informing me that someone had spilled candle wax on the floor and it would cost $250.00 to clean which was fine. 80 days later they emailed us to let us know that it would now cost $450.00. Taking into consideration the number of events tha... Read more

  • Beautiful, amazing hall with spectacular lake front views and perfect inside!!! Will never forget and everyone else wont either! Everyone commented how beautiful and different it was from your traditional hall. Love it! A little pricey, but well worth it!

  • Waldenwoods was a great place to host our wedding and bridal shower. The site is very beautiful and it is a great place to take beautiful outdoor wedding photos. The site is very unique compared to other local banquet centers. Also, the food at Waldenwoods is amazing and very well prepared. I would recommend Waldenwoods to any future brides.

  • They were very helpful. We only had about 6 months from the day we picked our wedding date until the big day. They provided us with all of the information that we needed to make our day the best day possible. They provided us with the information for the officiant and also the company to contact for the rental items we needed to get. We would recommend them to anyone. It's beautiful there, too. We were married overlooking the lake and we had our reception inside in their banquet hall. It was just amazing!

  • The staff and the setting at Waldenwoods can only be described as magical. All the stress that may be had about your wedding melts away when you arrive. The staff is so attentive, and they are fantastic at making sure everything is in order for you so you don’t have to worry about it on your big day. The amount of care they put into each detail is amazing! On top of it all, the lake offers the perfect sunset for beautiful photos! My husband and I feel so lucky to have gotten married at such a beautiful place with such a kind and caring staff. Pick Waldenwoods! You won’t regret it! Best decision ever!!!!
