With summer upon us, so is the season of beautiful white gowns, fitted black tuxedos, stunning floral arrangements, and, most likely, plenty of stress. Weddings are meant to be full of love and life, not last minute anxiety about whether enough rooms were booked at the hotel or if the cake was picked up on time. If that’s what you’re worried about, then take a deep breath and let it out—slowly. In the heart of northwest Wisconsin there’s a place where weddings come to life, and you don’t have to stress yourself out to experience it.
Resting on 700 breathtaking acres of natural woodlands is the Heartwood Conference Center & Retreat, a wedding destination unlike any other. Surrounded by towering trees and featuring two private lakes as well as the Namekagon River, Heartwood is a little slice of heaven that’s the perfect setting for saying, “I do.” Their destination wedding experience lets you and your sweetheart, as well as all your guests, truly escape the hustle-bustle of the cities and everyday life and indulge in a refreshing air of the great outdoors and the rustic elegance of a woodlands resort.
Here, you can plan a ceremony and the reception for up to 290 guests, as well as enjoy lodging options at the venue. Their single facility fee includes the ceremony, reception, dance floor, setup, linens, chairs, bartender, and much more. Exchange your vows out on the impeccable lawn that looks out over a private lake, then gather together for a sophisticated reception at the Eagle Lodge. The space will be arranged however you wish, and guests can indulge in a delicious meal prepared by their chef; choose between creating a customized menu for your event, or use the extensive menu the resort has on hand.
For all the other details, such as music and decorations, Heartwood’s professional Events Team can assist you from start to finish. They can provide you with a list of preferred vendors to take some of the stress off your shoulders.
"Our goal is to make wedding planning easy for couples,” said Conference Services Manager, Jennifer Noll. “From our annual tasting events with meet and greet time with local vendors, to encompassing planning worksheets to ensure details are flawless, we go the extra mile with every event we host."
Heartwood Conference Center & Resort truly believes at all couples are unique and strive to create weddings that sincerely reflect your personalities. With years of experience in arranging and hosting weddings, Heartwood guarantees a wedding experience that goes above and beyond all your expectations.
