It is with so much gratitude and appreciation for the amazing staff at WOW that I share this review with all prospective brides and grooms. When we began our search for a venue, we had an image in our mind of what we both wanted. We wanted a place that felt unique and that had simple understated elegance. We weren’t looking for an ornately decorated ballroom and we knew that we didn’t want to get married at the typical “wedding factory” type of venue.
After visiting many different venues, we became discouraged that we would not be able to find a place that would capture that rustic, elegant feel that we had hoped for, for a reasonable price. Our luck took an enormous turn when we stumbled upon WOW online and decided to take a trip to visit with Scott, the Event Manager. From the moment we met Scott, we knew that we had found a genuine, talented, and passionate professional who would make our wedding planning experience enjoyable and stress-free. Scott brought us on a tour of the facility and grounds and he was enthusiastic and attentive in answering all of our questions.
During our tour, we were also so impressed by the head chef who came out of the kitchen to shake our hands and say hello. Between the genuine nature and warmth of the staff and the beautiful facility, we were sold immediately. All of our interactions and communications leading up to the wedding were wonderful.
Scott and his staff were on top of every last detail. Brides and grooms want to find vendors that make the wedding planning fun, enjoyable, and stress-free. Because we knew that we were in such good hands, we did not worry once about a single detail. Our actual wedding day was remarkable in every way. It was so much more than we both could have ever hoped for.
We felt extremely taken care of all day long thanks to the wonderful staff at WOW. Michele, Scott’s assistant, was so kind and accommodating to us when we were getting ready and she went above and beyond to make sure that everything was just right. Jim, the amazing maître-d, is such a sweet man and he made sure that we were comfortable and happy all day & evening. Our ceremony was scheduled to take place outdoors alongside the beautiful lake; however, the rain clouds rolled in just as all of our guests were arriving.
The crew at WOW worked quickly to move all of the ceremony décor and seating under the tent. My disappointment about the rain quickly vanished when I saw the gorgeous ceremony setup under the tent. Many of our guests commented on how romantic and beautiful the ceremony was, despite the crummy weather. Our reception was phenomenal. Our guests were blown away by the delicious cocktail hour food and the uniqueness of the setting. I had multiple guests share that it was the best cocktail hour food that they’ve ever had at a wedding. I was not surprised when many of our guests commented on how genuine, attentive and thorough the staff was. I was so glad that my guests were able to pick up on that same feeling that we had when we met with the staff. By the end of the experience, we felt like we had gained friends.
My husband and I both agree that we will miss our interactions with the wonderful people at W.O.W., but we are so thrilled for all of the brides and grooms that can have that same experience.
WOW will forever be a source of great happiness for my husband and me!
