Everything is More Amazing than you’d Think!

The Woods was the most perfect venue I could have asked for! The grounds and ceremony site were beautiful and made for amazing photos! The entire staff was amazing! We got to tour the venue with the ... Read more owner, Terri, and Becky, our event coordinator was always happy and helpful with any questions we had! Katie was also amazing helping with anything and everything we could have needed if Becky wasn’t available! She even helped me surprise my (now) husband with shots before we walked back down the aisle after the big “I do!” I couldn’t have asked for a better place to get married and kick off our lives together! Bonus: our dogs even got to be in the wedding!

Perfect off site caterer

We used The Woods to cater our wedding at a cabin in Aitkin. We were planning our wedding from the cities and worked with Becky to plan everything from afar. We didn't have time to do a tasting, but ... Read more figured that a pasta buffet was hard to screw up so we just booked it and HOLY CRAP they exceeded our expectations in every way! The pasta sauces were made from scratch by an amazing chef. All night long people kept asking us where we got the food and complimenting everything. The appetizers were insane. My only regret is not going back for seconds. They were professional, on time, cleaned up after themselves, filled water glasses, and made sure there was more than enough food. Our ceremony was in the next room and I had no idea they were even there. Seriously, I can't say enough nice things about them. Everything was so smooth and delicious. Thank you to Becky and all the staff!!
