Select a venue that makes you feel happy, a place that makes you smile!
Choosing a wedding venue can feel like a daunting task. It doesn't have to be.
1. Take a moment to consider distance. Is it more important to you to be close to home or to travel? Both have their pros and cons, but most people get married within 50 miles of home.
2. Next, decide who you want to invite. Is your guest list going to be long or short? The average wedding is around 110 guests, but you can go much smaller or much, much larger. It's completely up to you.
3. With venues from coast to coast, we have a match for you. Pick boho, beachside, rustic, contemporary, luxury, historic. mountain, lake, ocean, forest, and garden views...
Save time finding and vetting vendors because we have great relationships with hand-selected vendors who are professional and easy to work with.
Since we work exclusively with our recommended vendors, the prices have already been negotiated, so you know you’re getting the best deal.
It's common for people to trudge around wedding fairs, search online, and speak to vendors personally because they want to find people they connect with, charge a reasonable price, and are available on the right day. The process is incredibly time-consuming and exhausting. By leapfrogging the slog and chatting with our vendors, you can skip all that hard work and save yourself time and hassle.
Of course, you decide if you want to use our recommended vendors. If you already have personal recommendations & connections, you can mix & match your vendor team to create a spectacular occasion. So, bring in your photographer, florist, and cake maker if that’s what you want . . . we love meeting new vendors too.
When it comes to your wedding, we’ll provide the venue, team, and refreshments. The rest is up to you!
Our love for hospitality comes from our obsession with customer satisfaction. We want you to feel good! We have more than a thousand team members from coast to coast, and every single one is remarkable. In fact, being remarkable is part of our core values: have fun, act with speed, and do the right thing!
To excel, we devote ourselves to training. For your wedding, we know we have one chance to get it right. We will!
You'll see that we recognize excellence. Everyone deserves thanks and appreciation. Our work requires hours of running around, being on our feet, and being organized: it's rewarding but also immensely challenging. It truly is a passion!
Part of growing is promoting internally and many of our venue managers began their careers serving meals, coordinating weddings, and helping customers. Over time, they have gained experience in managing staff, customers, vendors, and finances - they know everything about how to make an event successful.
We work together, we get tired together and we triumph together!
Since our earliest days, love has been our strongest passion! With roots dating back to 1986, we're here to stay. For nearly four decades, we have been making weddings romantic, fun, and memorable. It's been an incredible journey supporting hundreds of thousands of couples.
Each year, we welcome more than a million guests through our doors. We love events, and we're looking forward to another 40 years of helping our clients with all their event needs!
Wedgewood Weddings & Events is the industry leader for stunning event venues and all-inclusive wedding packages. And it was founded by one inspiring family.
John Zaruka found himself in a unique position in 1986, he had a detailed understanding of hospitality and noticed the events industry was stale. Venues sat empty and potential clients had to do all the organizing themselves. It was painful to rent furniture, organize A/V, hire bartenders, buy ice, etc. So, he started a revolution!
As the demand for high-quality venues with easy planning services has increased nationwide, the company has grown under the leadership of John's son, Bill. our CEO is a hospitality superstar with in-depth industry expertise.
The entire Zaruka family is still deeply committed to the company, and you see their actions behind the scenes and supporting our team members across the USA. Although their vision has evolved as expectations have changed, you can always expect first-class venues, all-inclusive packages, and delicious food and drinks to make your wedding exceptional.
Together, we share a mission to make celebrating fun and easy by offering incredible venues and simplifying every aspect of the planning process.
