Chiavari-style chairs and round tables are complemented by artificial spotlighting and natural light. Around the fireplace, the couple can enjoy their first dance as newlyweds while everyone takes photos. Other spaces available at the property include the Barn, willow pond, green spaces, as well as a special tree-planted garden.

Enchanting!

Many thanks to Julie Castleman and the staff at Mountain Memories, Thorpewood and all of and vendors for an incredible experience. I've heard from many, many people as to how much they enjoyed themselves and to the beauty and the highly appointed features of the pavilion, lodge, patio with lights and, especially the caldron(!) where many people were able to make s'mores.

You went beyond our expectations with carting my son Mike's family to Ole Mink Farm. That in itself reassured me of the care and dedication you have for your clients and guests, which was never in doubt, but placed an explanation point on the word 'service'.

Lastly, seeing you take many pictures and a video of my Chris singing was another example of you enjoying what you do!

Beautiful & Friendly

The grounds and the lodge at Thorpewood are stunning. My daughter got married in August. Since it is generally 10 degrees cooler in the mountains, it was the PERFECT time of year to get married there. The lodge is magical at night with all of the lighting. Their preferred vendors were all wonderful to work with. So many guests approached us and told us how it was the best wedding food they've eaten in years. (I agreed 100%)
