The Perfect Wedding Venue
Wedding date: 11/11/23
The Veranda at Thornton Park turned out to be the perfect venue for us in more ways that one. If you’re looking for a venue with cute houses to stay in on site, freedom to create your dream event, and amazing people to work with, then this is your venue.
Between our close friends and family we stayed in all three of the houses available. The orange house is great to sleep 6 people if everyone is ok with sharing a bed. That was our main hangout house for the weekend and had everything we needed. The blue house was perfect for my mom to stay in; small but perfectly tucked away and had a great view. If you you’re having your wedding here, I highly recommend having private appetizers on the gorgeous deck overlooking the lovely town. My husband and I did this right after our ceremony and I cannot recommend it enough! On our wedding night, my husband and I stayed in the pink house which was my favorite house. It was the perfect little cottage to escape from our family for the night.
The Vernada has some amazing vendor recommendations for everything you might need for your event but also allows you to bring in your own vendors if you choose. The freedom to do so made planning our wedding more fun. Although I agree with the venue that DJ Ben Bravo is the best!
Felicia, who owns and runs the Veranda made the whole weekend a magical event. Her laid back attitude and fun nature made planning and executing our wedding fun and easy. I swear Felicia’s chill and calm demeanor that can calm any bridezilla (yes I’m referring to myself). Not only is she good at her job, she’s a great person to know. After this wedding I know that we have made new friends for life. I cannot wait to have our anniversary parties here for all the years to come. Thank you so much Felicia and the Vernada team for making our wedding so perfect.
Effortless from the start
Gerald, the event coordinator, was so amazing from the beginning. He made the whole process so easy. We had a vision of having a petting zoo, and he totally ran with it and didn’t tell us no. It ended up being a hit!
I can’t say enough how amazing Gerald was to work with. I wasn’t worried about anything on my big day because I knew we were in good hands. Gerald was always so responsive and made us feel at ease.
It was a bummer losing our first venue, but I believe everything happens for a reason. In hindsight, it was the best thing that could have happened. We found The Veranda and we found Gerald and we had a beyond perfect day.
