Who Started It All

A young couple barely out of college, we lived onsite at the Wildwood Inn in the early days of our business. It was an exciting time full of hope and hard work where we began to understand how gratifying and heartwarming it was to be an important part of people’s weddings. Soon, we realized we also had a business model we could replicate, which in turn, meant we could offer more couples like ourselves wedding venues and experiences that far exceeded most, in beauty and convenience. So, we held hands and made the leap! Now Walters Wedding Estates has 40 venues and thousands of weddings under its belt.

The Wildwood Inn has a special place in our hearts forever. It's the place where everything started.
Keith, Sarah & Family
