    Roaring 20’s wedding

    Our wedding we absolutely perfect thanks to ALL of the staff from The Thaxton. They made sure we felt comfortable with everything and made sure even with mishaps that everything went as planned. I can’t thank them enough for making us feel special on our day.

    Everything we wanted and more...

    Where do I even start? Everything about our experience at The Thaxton was amazing, from start to finish. Kim was very professional throughout the planning process and responded promptly to email communications. She worked with us every step of the way, to help us bring our ideas to life in this unique space, on a very short time line. She took time to answer all of our questions and quickly addressed any concerns, which put my mind at ease. We decided to have both our ceremony and reception at The Thaxton (instead of just one or the other) and it was the best decision ever! The décor, artwork, lighting and architectural details combined make this a beautiful, romantic, one-of-a-kind event space. We didn't have to spend too much on our own décor because The Thaxton is already so beautiful the way it is! We love everything about this space and there are some great backdrops for wedding photos. Mad Dog was a great host! He and Kim made sure everything ran smoothly on our big day. Kim checked in with me constantly, throughout the night to make sure I had everything I needed. All of the staff at The Thaxton are simply amazing and delivered top notch service in every area. They all work very hard to make sure guests at The Thaxton have the best experience possible. They sure know how to throw a party! I am so grateful we were able to have our event at The Thaxton and we can't wait to plan our next event here!

    The Thaxton's reply:

    Hearing that makes our hearts soar! Thank you so much for choosing The Thaxton and for taking the time to review!

    Our Covid Wedding

    Through all the unknowns Kim was a ray of light! She was professional, flexible and understanding! We loved how Kim helped us make sure we had every detail in place and she was encouraging of our unique ideas! With the pandemic raging she stayed calm and created a safe environment for our family and loved ones. We are so grateful for all the help she gave us and we had the best day filled with love and all good vibes!!! 10 out of 10 would get married all over again there 💓

    The Thaxton's reply:

    Thank you so much Teresa! We are thrilled that you felt well taken care of! The pleasure was all ours.
