Thank you Winchester Opera House for making my dream wedding a day we will never forget! I don't know where to begin. Every detail was executed beyond expectation! A huge thank you to Neil,and his. CREATIVE GENIUS. I was so concerned about the availability of my first choice flower selections. Neil, you really came through, my friends and family are still raving about these quite decor and delicious food. I am sending an 8 x 10 photo that captures the splendor of the event. My photographer, also a recommendation of Vanessa's was a total professional and gifted artist. I especially, love the formal photos of Rand and I on the Moundale property. I hope you find them worthy of posting in your bridal gallery. Vanessa and staff - an affectionate thanks for the perfect wedding weekend. I am still reliving it by watching the videos. Thank you so much from Rand and Me for the " dream come true " wedding. Betsy, my sister and maid of honor will be in touch with you.

I got married on 11/3/2018, and it was everything I could have asked for and more!
I would 100% recommend WOH and Moundale Manor for a wedding venue. Natalie, Sonia, and Vanessa were great. They went above and beyond to make our day perfect, completely stress free, and they were very organized. The food was phenomenal, as well as the professionalism!

Best Day of my Life
From start to finish Vanessa, Natalie, and Sonia were absolutely amazing! I was involved in everything thing I wanted, and nothing I didn't. For some time after the wedding all my guests mentioned how well run the whole day was, and everyone, including myself were able to actually relax and enjoy the day. I honestly could not have asked for anything better!
We shot at the Winchester Opera House & Moundale Manor for the first time this year! The manor is gorgeous for getting ready and ceremony photographs. The house is the perfect backdrop to make your photos look luxurious! The opera house is so cute for receptions and the two locations are conveniently located near one another for the perfect venue package! Natalie & Neal will take care of all your planning and floral needs. Your in great hands!!
The opera house is a great venue especially if you're looking for an elegant theme, it is awesome. They have a great wedding planner and the staff is very kind and gracious. I have shot several weddings there and everyone of them have turned out great. I highly recommend the opera house.
The Winchester Opera House blew me away. I was amazed when I walked into this incredible historic space. Such a classy and elegant venue. The staff were helpful and very friendly. I look forward to my return!
