Weddings & Celebrations Testimonials
“The Woodlands is THE place! We are so happy with everything, the team at The Woodlands was wonderful. We received so many compliments from our guests. From the first tour to when we left the morning after, we could not have asked for a better experience. Every detail was looked after, every request was met, and they really brought our dream to life. We cannot wait to visit in the future and reminisce over our wonderful wedding!“- Valerie, WeddingWire Review“We are from North Eastern NJ and had our wedding in Dallas PA. All of our guests were traveling to the Wilkes Barre area to attend our wedding. We had a large number of hotels to choose from in the area and we are very happy we chose the Woodlands Inn and Resort.The resort was the perfect setting for our wedding weekend activities. Most guests arrived Friday and made a mini vacation out of it.We had our rehearsal dinner at Crescenzo’s. it was fantastic. We had the entire restaurant, bar and deck overlooking the picturesque waterfalls and Skyy bar. The food was tremendous. From the made to order pasta bar, chicken veal and sausage dishes to the pizza bar and salads everything was fresh and bursting with flavor. The dessert bar was awesome as well! Our family and friends are still complimenting us on the quality, selection and presentation that the woodlands had for us.We also chose Crecsenzo’s for breakfast on Sunday for all of our family and friends before they left to return home. The breakfast buffet was also awesome. There was a large selection of hot and cold items and also an omelet bar with made to order eggs.We had a hospitality suite for the entire weekend which we stocked with snacks, drinks, games and arts and crafts for the little ones. The suite was perfect, it had a huge balcony overlooking the outdoor pool area and the back deck from Crescenzo’s . Our family and friends could meet to talk, drink, unwind or drop off the kids for a while ( we had a babysitter for the kiddies for weekend) while they had fun at one of the on site bars or clubs or took the free shuttle to the casinoWe had reserved almost half of the rooms in the hotel that weekend and we have received very positive comment from our family and friends that spent the weekend with us.The guest rooms were awesome. We brought our dog so we had a dog friendly room in addition to a tower suite and the honeymoon suite for the night after the wedding. Our family and friends occupied a variety of room types from standard rooms with two double beds to king rooms,tower rooms to stream side rooms and all of the rooms were awesome. They were all updated with premium bedding and high quality furnishings as well as updated bathrooms.The staff was excellent as well. They were willing to do whatever it took to make our guests stay as enjoyable as possible. They even ensured that our guests that arrived on Saturday could get into their rooms before the normal check in time of 4:00 so they had time to get changed and ready for the shuttle to our ceremony.We would like to say thank you to Rick and his staff for making us feel at home and providing an excellent venue for our wedding weekend!”- TripAdvisor Review (NJ_Bus_Trvlr) “I finally had the time to sit down and send you an e-mail to personally thank you for the TREMENDOUS job that you and your staff have done for our recent winter/Christmas wedding at The Woodlands. I knew from the start that we made the right choice with our venue. As soon as I opened the door to our cocktail hour room, and then again for the reception area, I was breathless! The decorations – from the trees to the ornaments hanging from the ceiling – that atmosphere actually brought tears to my eyes! This was what I wanted, and you delivered! Never once during the 7 months leading up to the wedding was I worried or concerned. I always felt that you were the professional, and all I had to do was drop it in your hands. No wonder people talk about The Woodlands as the premier location for a wedding. You know what you are doing! All those little pieces and details came together that day.What did we like the most?Maybe it was the food. No, the atmosphere, or ambiance. Possibly the staff. Or the way the room was decorated. Or the way everything was situated, even including the candy table. Maybe it was the bartenders and the specialty drinks. Of course – it was EVERYTHING! The wedding was done to perfection! We would not have changed anything!Sometimes you look back and wish you did something differently. We could not ask for more!Rick, your attention to details made this wedding. Anyone can give you a location or a venue. Even the wedding pictures on the bridge with the snow on the ground are priceless! I could go on and on and on! I just know that when people tell you it was the most elegant wedding that they have ever attended, they are not lying!We will all remember this day forever, and we will always remember you were a huge part of our beautiful day.We had the wedding of a lifetime!Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything.”- Cheryl W. “Thank you again for making our day so special. Everything was just perfect! The linens, lighting, food, service, etc. were amazing. We heard nothing but good comments all night long about how beautiful the reception was.
