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!Sent on 11/08/2019

Perfect Wedding and Reception
We had our wedding and reception at The Thaxton on 3/7/2020. It was just perfect! Kim, Mad Dog and all the staff were excellent throughout the entire event.My guests had a blast and were raving about it the next day. I’m so happy we chose The Thaxton as our venue. I can’t say enough good things about this space, Kim, Mad Dog and all the staff members. Dj Uptown kept the party going and the crowd engaged. I’m actually sad it’s over! You did a great job and we will be forever grateful for the wonderful memories you helped create.Sent on 03/08/2020
