Magical, accomodating, welcoming

Suzanne the coordinator at Parkwood is wonderful, our Ceremony was beautiful and went so smoothly. We have always loved the estate and Suzanne helped make our dream wedding there happen. Thank you Parkwood for hosting our wedding, we truly appreciated everyone and everything you did for us.

Beautiful place to get married

Parkwood has always been a place I loved so when we decided to get married we contacted them immediately. Suzanne is the wedding coordinator for Parkwood and she seriously knows what she is doing. She makes sure everything runs smoothly. We didn't find out until rehearsal day that my now husband's brother and his wife used Suzanne as well. Suzanne remembered them immediately which made things even easier for us. She is a fantastic coordinator and would highly recommend her and her husband ken who does the music.
Parkwood was very patient with us when I insisted on a group photo by the fountain they agreed and did not rush us. We have beautiful pictures in the gardens and I couldn't be happier. We had an issue with a picture we brought and everyone around was there immediately to help us set the picture up without hesitation. Thank you Suzanne, Ken and thee staff at Parkwood.

Elegant wedding that exceeded our expectations.

Parkwood was an amazing venue to hold our wedding. The interior design and decor set the stage for an elegant party. We would strongly recommend this location for an event.

Great but pricey

We chose to book here because of the movies that were filmed here, Billy Madison and X-Men to name a few. Our contact person was Suzanne. She was great in helping us organize the chairs and a/v equipment. One area that could have improved was the response time between emails. The environment for pictures is amazing! There is no smoking on the property. We were also not allowed alcohol as it was only our ceremony happening and we did not purchase a liquor license. All in all our wedding was beautiful here and Suzanne was a great help!

Stunning!!

The grounds were so beautiful and made for a stunning day!! Our guests were blown away with the sunken gardens, and the beautiful Foutains and rose garden on site. Without the help of ken and Suzanne our day wouldn鈥檛 have been so beautiful. Thank you so much Suzanne and Ken for everything!!
