“Every mother dreams of having a wedding for her daughter as beautiful and flawless as the one we had this past weekend at Willows. From the very start, Jenn Wenman was warm, welcoming and shared excellent recommendations when asked. She answered every email quickly, and handled every detail with a skill and calm that translated well to both my daughter and myself.
I also want to commend the rest of your staff. From the valets at your front entrance to every one of your waitpersons, service, warmth, accommodations were absolutely outstanding. Many of our guests had never been to Willows Lodge before, and were surprised they had missed such a gem.”
-Sandy Resnick, Mother of the Bride
“The Willows is a beautiful, peaceful and relaxing location next to a couple of wineries in Woodinville. Their catering and facilities manager also helped assist me as my wedding coordinator throughout the entire day. She and her staff took care of me and my guests and made us all feel comfortable. The wedding ceremony in the gazebo was breathtaking which was also adorned by the floral arrangements and an herb garden. I would highly recommend considering an event or even enjoy a night's stay at Willows. You won't be disappointed."
-Michelle & Darin, wedding couple
“We can't thank you and the staff at Willows Lodge enough for making our wedding truly spectacular and memorable. All of the catering staff was so gracious during the event and so accommodating in collecting the "stuff " after the wedding. Please give our thanks to all the staff members.
Did we mention how wonderful the food was?!? Ellie and I were very impressed at the tasting and I must say I think the food during the event was even better! All the guests raved about the setting, the food, the wine, etc. Everything exceeded our expectations. The catering and facilities manager was particularly invaluable in making the entire event go so smoothly. I know weddings are a frequent event for you, but you absolutely treated us as if ours was the most important wedding you had ever choreographed. Thank you for all your answers, reassurances, directions, and suggestions. Really, it couldn't have flowed more smoothly.”
-Lori Birtley, Mother of the Bride
"Thank you so much for coordinating our wedding! You and your team are truly amazing! The day honestly could not have been more perfect. Every single person from the man at the valet to the bartender to our dinner server was exceptional, helpful, kind and excited for us! I know you guys have so many weddings, but you all made us feel so special, and I think that is truly incredible!"
- Kim Mendoza, Bride
