    Perfect wedding at Thatch

    Thatch was the perfect place for us to get married! Barrie and her team were so accommodating and helpful, especially with all of the pandemic-related conditions. Barrie really knows what she’s doing and is very responsive to questions. We were able to make our day exactly what we wanted. The ceremony site in front of the arbor is beautiful, and you can decorate the arbor and barrels as much as you’d like. (It really doesn’t need much!) The bridal getting-ready room is adorable, comfortable, and practical (lots of mirrors and a private bathroom). The grounds are beautiful for photos, and there are lots of good wine options. We really can’t say enough wonderful things about Thatch and Barrie. We loved our wedding day at Thatch and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing wedding venue.

    Cannot recommend thatch enough!

    I don't know if I can fully articulate the value of Thatch Winery and the entire team. We had to change our date multiple times, Barrie and the team went above and beyond to provide us with exceptional support and be the guidance we needed. Would give 10 stars if able and cannot say enough good things about the venue.

    Thank you so much! Wishing you and Will all the happiness in the World! Take Care, Barrie

  • The Local Restaurant and Catering Wedding Caterers

    As a catering company we love working events at First Colony Winery. The staff there goes above and beyond helping clients create their perfect event! They also include many rentals that clients will already need helping them save on their overall budget.

  • Mixed Elements Entertainment (Professional DJ Service) Wedding DJs

    I had the pleasure of providing my DJ services at First Colony Winery for a late October wedding, which was amazing. The venue has ample parking, easy loading/unloading, and allows you several different great areas on the property. Not to mention this venue offers a lot of great scenery for photos. The staff here at first colony were accommodating from start to finish and I look forward to working with them in the future!!

  • Barb Wired Wedding Planners

    We absolutely love working at First Colony! They are responsive, attentive and always on the ball, And the wine is amazing! The client always comes first here and they are assured a happy day!
