Thorpewood is Magical!
My daughter's wedding at Thorpewood was magical! The pine cathedral was the perfect outdoor setting for the ceremony and the lodge was ideal for the cocktail hour and reception. The facilities are so well kept and gorgeous. Julie and her crew are absolutely fantastic! Julie walked us through every question and idea we had then made sure our vision became a reality. We were able to relax and truly enjoy the special day knowing that everything was covered. I wish I could give more than 5 stars!Sent on 04/18/2019

Magical Wedding at Thorpewood
My daughter and son-in-law got married at Thorpewood last Sunday and the whole night was magical! The property is stunningly beautiful and offers many different options for the various events. We chose the Pine Cathedral for the ceremony, had the cocktail hour at the Barn and ended with dinner and dancing at the Lodge. Lots of logistics and they were all flawlessly handled by Julie and her amazing staff! Julie is so experienced and professional, she held our hand not only the day of but throughout the months leading up to it and managed to calm even this nervous mother of the bride down. The various locations each had their own special feel and added so much to the overall experience! The staff was amazing, moved all our decorations and special items from one location to another and had literally everything packed up, organized and ready to go at the end of the night so we didn't even had to worry about that. We had Renaissance Chef cater our event and the way everybody cooperated with each other was remarkable. We cannot recommend Thorpewood and Julie enough; when all was said and done, it felt like we were friends.Sent on 09/06/2019

Perfect from Beginning to End
The venue's setting is so beautiful that it needs little decoration. Julie is experienced and professional - she and her staff made our day run smoothly. The wedding seemed to flow effortlessly because of Julie's skill. Having her in charge made it easy to enjoy the night and celebrate the love of our daughters. Her DJ & caterer recommendations were reliable. Thank you to you Julie , your husband, and your staff!Sent on 09/08/2019
