Surrounded by trees with rustic benches and chairs for up to 130 people, the Pine Cathedral offers a breath-taking place for the couple to say ‘I do’. For an indoor ceremony, the Lodge makes for an intimate and inviting setting with its majestic fireplace and cozy ambiance. After the newlyweds have been pronounced and the confetti has been sprinkled, the wedding party can make their way towards one of the reception areas to continue the celebrations. Indeed, Mountain Memories at ThorpeWood can accommodate approximately 150 people for a reception at the Lodge. Here, dining, dancing, mingling, and revelry can take place as everyone joins in the speeches and toasts. When decorated accordingly with fairy lights, charming centerpieces, and floral displays, the place looks resplendent. 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.

    A+ I highly recommend ThorpeWood

    ThorpeWood is a very unique and beautiful venue that offers multiple ceremony & reception location options throughout the expansive grounds. Both Julie & Lexi are knowledgeable, professional, welcoming and extremely accommodating when it comes to making your special day exactly how you want it.
    ThorpeWood is the only one of many venues that we looked at that offers both indoor and multiple outdoor options to choose from just in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. This is definitely an important factor to consider and ThorpeWood put my mind at ease knowing there were several back up options, if needed.
    I knew the venue and grounds would be very picturesque, but I was absolutely blown away when I saw how stunning the structures, greenery and flowers looked in our digital photos. Absolutely gorgeous!

    I highly recommend taking a tour or attending an Open House and taking time to see the venue and to meet Julie and Lexi in person. While at the Open House, be sure to take time to look at photos of the different seasons so you can see all of the natural beauty and different settings throughout the entire year.

    Our entire ThorpeWood experience was wonderful from beginning to end. Thank you Julie, Lexi and staff for your time, and expertise. Everything was perfect!

    Incredible team out there!

    Everything about Mountain Memories is lovely! Julie and her team are extremely friendly and very accommodating. Julie was with us in every step of the way, right from planning, getting us in touch with all the right vendors to all the little things needing attention on the wedding day. The venue is beautiful and elegant surrounded by nature. Go get in touch with them, and you will know exactly what I mean!

    1/1/22 a magical wedding

    Julie and her team are absolutely amazing. I knew from our first meeting that Thorpewood was where I wanted to get married! My husband and I had our wedding at Thorpewood on January 1st and it was better than I could’ve ever dreamed. Julie worked with my family, my wedding planner and I to make sure everything went off without a hitch and made sure I had the best day ever. Thorpewood still had some Christmas decorations up which made it even more magical ❤️❤️❤️. I couldn’t have asked for a better day and I wouldn’t have changed any of it! Thank you so much Julie, Lexi and Cara. Allison Maxwel
