We chose Windsor Ballroom originally because of what was offered through their Winter Wonderland package but honestly they were so great. From the beginning, they were responsive and accommodating. Working with them to plan such a big day in our lives was super easy with zero... Read More stress. Leading up to the wedding they took some of the reigns which lessened the load on us. We worked with Andrea to finalize all the details and menu for the wedding. Then we coordinated with Ty who took inventory and instruction for all our added touches. It honestly felt like he shared our vision. The day of the wedding was perfect! Irma and Ty were in full control and made sure not only us but our closest family members were taken care for the entirety of the event. I would highly recommend but after our wedding all friends and family are already completely sold and looking for another occasion to plan!

Our wedding reception was held here on 12-2-2017. We booked this place on our first visit on July 31st, 2017. We simply fell in love with it as soon as we walked in. The dance floor was so spacious and the chandeliers added such elegance to this place . They beautifully... Read More decorated the tables with their centerpieces including candles which almost matched the chandelier/candle theme stage we had for our reception. We had outside vendor for our catering, this made it a little difficult for us to get the full experience as a newly married couple since we did not have the complimentary bridal suit or the breakfast they offer to their in-house client. However, I am not complaining as I had a great time at my wedding. :)

This is probably the latest review in the history of reviews. I had my wedding at the Windsor Ballroom in August of 2017. It was the absolute best night of my life. From the beginning Windsor Ballroom was an pleasure to work with. Every single one of their employees cares... Read More tremendously about the quality of everything they do. When I booked my wedding I booked it with Samantha, unfortunately she doesn't work there anymore, but she still showed up the night of my wedding just to show how much she cares about the couples she works with. The night went off without a hitch and every need I had was met. My Captain Urma made sure everything I wanted or needed I got, everytime I put down an empty glass of champagne I had a fresh full one within seconds. When I needed bobby pins , Urma had them. Ty was wonderful ! He made sure I had everything I needed and also made sure that I ate something at some point in the night. Also, when a guest spilled their drink on my dress Ty was on his hands and knees along with a server drying my dress. I cannot explain how much fun my guests had and how many compliments I got about my wonderful wedding. When my husband and I got back to our room we found 3 packaged meals ready for us to take home, along with several pieces of cake and cookies! I cannot explain how much I loved having my wedding here!

From the moment we walked in on our first tour the catering team bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted, for the price we were looking for. For finalizing the arrangements we worked with Sydney who is super bubbly and excited, and amazing at... Read More keeping everything in order. She made the meeting for picking out colors/menus/etc. enjoyable rather than stressful. The ballroom is gorgeous, and the courtyard for the ceremony is stunning and the perfect size to feel intimate even with 140 people. There's plenty of room to never feel cramped throughout, including the courtyard, cocktail hour, and reception. The food is phenomenal, the wait staff is extremely courteous and go above and beyond, and the maitre d, Ty is basically Superman. Ty runs a tight ship; the groom and I were able to meet with him a few days before the wedding, hand over literally EVERYTHING that was needed the day of, and he had it under control. There was even an accident with the pumpkins/table numbers on my part requiring 3 pumpkins to be re-done; Ty told me to just bring him the new card-holder and he'd take care of it. Sure enough, the day of the wedding the table numbers looked amazing! Ty also assured that absolutely no issues made it to my husband or I, he handled everything himself, making the day completely stress-free for us. The true hero of our tail, though, is Irma. Irma is one of the "captains" of the wait staff, and she's the most amazing woman ever. From the moment we got there for pictures, Irma was there for anything my husband or I needed. She actually bustled my dress (expertly, I might add), when the bridesmaid with a video of the bustle was not in the room yet. She's practically a magician, having anything we asked for within minutes of the request, including getting the child meals out early so the kids could be picked up. The entire team is incredible, with major kudos going to Sydney, Ty, and the amazing Irma.

Normally I wouldn't write a review like this, however, when the sales person at the Windsor Ballroom asked that I not write one unless I was going to rate them a "5", I felt compelled to.  It just seems the Ballroom's rating is a lie if anyone who does not want to give a "5" is... Read More asked to not write a review. I contracted with the Windsor Ballroom back in November 2015 for a September 2016 wedding.  From the time I contracted, until the day of the wedding, I had multiple catering managers and was only made aware of the change when I sent an email and a different manager answered me.  This was concerning. At the tasting, my family and I were not able to try the dishes we were considering  for our menu.  They pre-select a few entrees, and don't let you choose which ones you want to try.  During the planning I had addressed some concerns I had after attending a wedding at this location for a friend.  I noticed there were not enough butler servers in the cocktail hour and people were not asked if they wanted coffee when dessert was served.  Although these concerns were mentioned to the catering office, and I was assured these would not be issues at my wedding, sure enough my wedding was no different.  In addition to these previous mentioned concerns, pre-set appetizers were missing in some spots and my aunt and a few other guests were not served dinner with everyone else.  I will say they do a pretty good job taking care of just the bride and groom in hope that you don't see the MANY things that go wrong with all the other guests. I had also asked to add chocolate chip cookies to our dessert station.  This was one thing I as the bride specifically wanted on my wedding day with the sundae bar.  I paid extra for this.  Although cookies were added, there were no chocolate chip.  I was very disappointed, and when addressed afterwards, I was offered a tray of chocolate chip cookies for me and my husband.  Although this was offered, it was never carried through.  I am still waiting for the tray I said would be good for Thanksgiving 2016 with my family.  Honestly, if they had given me even half the money back for the cookies, I might not even be writing this review. At the end of the reception, I would have probably rated my experience a "4".  It was not perfect by any means to give a "5".  After going back and forth for weeks after about getting my reward points credited and about the cookies and all the other issues, my rating went down.  Basically the feeling I got was that they received all our money so we didn't matter anymore. I truly hope anyone booking here has a much better experience.
