“My husband and I got married at Winding Brooks last weekend and it could not have gone smoother! The weather and landscape were beautiful! We had several compliments on this venue and I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a wedding venue! The owners were extremely helpful and know their stuff!”

Tyler Hill

"We absolutely loved this venue. The gardens are so beautiful, the two outside ceremony sites are breathtaking and the reception hall inside is stunning. We were surprised we could use the whole venue for one fantastic price... best price we found to accommodate 225 guests! The owners were so helpful getting all our vendors and guests down to the venue in the rain on Saturday with the golf carts to keep them dry. The wedding was amazing and I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful site."
