Ballroom, Waterfront, Historic Venue, Vineyard
I had an absolutely terrible experience with this venue. They got shut down a week before my wedding by the county because of some code violations they never corrected. It was completely irresponsible of a business and wedding vendor to allow something like that to happen. This is peoples weddings we're talking about! Event coordinator was hard to get in touch with when we tried to contact her. Her inexperience really apparent during the whole process. The venue doesn't offer a lot, you will have to provide a lot of your own stuff. Bridal suite was really the front office area, not super pretty, and really nowhere for the groom/groomsmen to get ready or hang out beforehand. I'm glad that there were some pleased brides that had the chance to have their wedding here before me but for me, a bride who had to move everything to a new venue 9 days before her date, this is definitely a venue I will give a 1 star rating to, if not lower. Thank goodness for my coordinator, family, and friends I was able to move my wedding in such short notice. My wedding was amazing and beautiful so it was a blessing in disguise to get out of The Willow Ballroom.
The Willow Ballroom is a wedding/event center located in a repurposed warehouse just south of Sacramento in Hood, CA. Let me first say that I absolutely LOVED the vibe at the ballroom. After only 15 minutes (literally!) of our meeting Angelica, the general manager, and viewing the space, my husband and I signed the contract for our wedding/reception which was held in November 2016 Angelica and her family were amazing to work with and have a beautiful eye for design. During the pre-wedding days, Angelica helped solve a major problem with one of our other vendors and also pitched in during the reception where she thought she could help (all gratis!) The ballroom is a "blank canvas" where you can create your own rustic chic event. The space is a mix of concrete, brick and beautiful old chandeliers. There is a patio out the back and the area behind the facility abuts the river has wonderful photo shoot opportunities. We elected to use draping to divide the space into separate "rooms." The facility rental includes basic tables and chairs, but we added several vintage rentals which work perfectly with the decor. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice -- I HIGHLY RECOMMEND working with Angelica and planning your event at the Willow Ballroom!!
My husband and I were looking for an indoor venue for our fall wedding that wouldn't limit the amount of guests we wanted to invite or be effected by the weather. We stumbled upon the Willow Ballroom and said YES to this venue immediately. The space is a gorgeous blank canvas which you have the freedom to design and create an event unique to you and your future spouse. The space is beautiful on its own and doesn't require a lot of decoration. I would suggest paying to have the drapes hung as in the photos, it really helps enhance the space for aesthetics and acoustics. A great coordinator and involved catering staff is a must since this space is so open. Angelica is very friendly and easy to work with, if you have questions or are stumped about the design of your event, she has great ideas and solutions. Our wedding was AMAZING and all of our guests had nothing but wonderful things to say about the venue. You will not regret having your wedding here.
We haven't had our wedding yet, but working with them has been a joy so far and they are so helpful! It is such a beautiful location, and I'm so excited to have our big day there!
