  • This venue is so beautiful and unique and definitely worth the money. Our daughter and son-in-law got married there last weekend and she continues to call it her "fairy tale" wedding. We've had numerous comments about its setting and the capacity for an indoor/outdoor event. We enjoyed the fact we didn't have to use a vendor from a list and were able to use a local caterer/friend from our area. Jim & Michele offer different beverage prices, too, which is nice. They went above & beyond when making sure we had everything we needed. A+++

  • Willows Bend was the only venue I looked at because it just felt perfect from the get go! It is just unbelievably gorgeous with the most beautiful setting. Jim and Michele are so fun to work with, they helped everything run smoothly, and they truly cared about my husband and I and OUR wishes for our wedding. They took so much stress off my shoulders, were quick to answer my hundreds of questions, and made me feel SO special! They've thought out everything so carefully! The bridal suite was PERFECT for my eight bridesmaids and me to get ready in, the ceremony and reception set-up is exactly what I had envisioned, they allow outside catering, and the beverage packages are very reasonable! I loved my Friday wedding, as I was able to rent the venue out on Thursday for 6 hours to decorate and hold our rehearsal. Honestly, we didn't have to do much decorating because the venue is already so elegant! My wedding felt like a fairytale and it had so much to do with this venue. I've gott... Read more

  • Jim and Michele run a fantastic business. Through all of the uncertainty that the pandemic provided us, these two continued to support and aid my husband and I to create the perfect wedding day. We recommend to anyone who is looking for an all-inclusive wedding venue.

  • Let me take the time and effort out of your search....book at Willows Bend. With Jim and Michelle, we had a wedding with the bride out of state and COVID-19 pandemic and the pandemic was our ONLY stresser. We love Willows Bend.

    Jan, Thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure in helping you plan your daughters wedding and making it is a great day. We would agree that darn COVID has been a stresser for a lot of brides and grooms. So glad the day was filled with a lot of great memories.

  • Willows Bend was nothing but amazing! From the very beginning Jim and Michele were very helpful. They were always VERY quick to respond to questions through email, they were very accommodating to my ideas and vision for the big day, and they were just so friendly and fun to work with! The venue is just gorgeous and perfect for a larger wedding, but also great for a smaller one. We had around 230 guests and the space never once felt cramped. What sets Willows Bend apart from other venues is its large bridal suite, elevator, large parking lot, tons of natural light, large open floor plan, and its gorgeous lake view. I would have to say the biggest thing though is the personalization Michele and Jim bring to the table. Their love and passion for this venue and this line of work is so immense, and because of this my parents and I felt we were in great hands. My husband, our families, and I had such a great experience at Willows Bend. My husband and I both agree our wedding day was the... Read more

  • Jim and Michelle have a wonderful facility, it is stunning! Beautiful building and an ideal setting for an outside, lakeside wedding. They were great to work with, responsive to questions and helpful with ideas, yet flexible with other ideas. My son and daughter-in-law had a perfect and super fun rehearsal, wedding, dinner, reception and dance! Wonderful memories made with family and friends!

    Thank you for the kind words and the pleasure was ours working with both families and getting to know everyone. We wish Patrick and Grace many years of happiness. Thank you for allowing us to be part of family.
