    Rehearsal Dinner Venue

    Not only is the Birchwood ballroom a beautiful venue but the staff is outstanding! We had our son's rehearsal dinner in the ballroom and the staff and food were fantastic! The terrace is a bonus!

    Highly recommend!!!

    The Birchwood was amazing! A huge storm came through during our ceremony and for pictures afterwards, and they did everything possible to make things work for us. They even brought food to our room since we missed cocktail hour. Heather was so great to work with! She made things so easy and answered any questions I had quickly. She was very professional and personable.
    My pictures came out beautifully even with the huge storm. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a wedding that can be done all in the same building. I am so happy that we had our wedding here!!
