    Dreamy & Elegant Venue

    Chance & I couldn't be happier with our choice of having our wedding ceremony & reception at the Birchwood! The staff was phenomenal from beginning to end. Mary, Heather, Rebecca, and Leja were all so helpful and prompt throughout the entire process. From questions surrounding the smallest & largest details, they made sure we had everything we needed. The staff worked excellent with all of the vendors, which was really important to us as well. All meetings throughout the last year made us feel so special.. the 1st tour, welcome meeting (with champagne & charcuterie), taste testing, and the final walk through. The ballroom is so beautiful and the room flip between the ceremony & reception was so seamless. If you're in the St. Pete area, go checkout The Birchwood. It is so beautiful & elegant! Thank you to the staff for making our special day one we will forever remember.

    Outstanding!

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at The Birchwood a few weeks ago. I couldn’t be happier with how perfectly things went! Heather and the rest of the Birchwood team is an absolute dream to work with. They answered all my questions quickly and made sure all my T’s were crossed and I’s dotted before my wedding day. They made sure my husband and I had everything we needed during the wedding and everything was exactly how we wanted it. I whole heartedly recommend the Birchwood!!
