Best Team ever

Meet The Team

Los Willows offers a dedicated team that will help your day be as memorable as possible!

Cathie Ransom

Founder/Owner

For over 22 years, Los Willows has been my passion. I like to think that we are in the “happy” business making dreams come true at each and every celebration. If there are compliments that we hear over and over again, they are, “This place is magical” My family and I can’t take all the credit since our natural surroundings and pristine spring-fed lake is definitely the cornerstone to this magnificent place. What I can say is we at Los Willows host only one celebration at a time so the entire focus is on you and your special moment, where memories last forever. We invite you to visit Los Willows and experience the “magic” for yourselves. You will not be disappointed!

Brandy and Buffy

Branch Managers

You may run into these two on non-wedding days. Brandy’s favorite thing to do is retrieve sticks or in some cases, branches. Buffy prefers to meet and greet and hang out with whoever has a treat.

Lynne-Martucci

Lynne Martucci

Director of Operations

I wear many hats because that is how it is in this special industry. I have been working in Food & Beverage Service for over thirty years and with that experience I truly know food, from preparation to presentation and I know just about everything you need to know about hosting a successful bar. I will be the person you see when it’s time to have your menu tasting. You will also see me involved with our banquet staff ensuring everything goes according to plan.
