Relaxing and Valued
This was the only venue out of several that I really felt valued and that this day was truly about me. They guide you every step of the way and make it as easy as possible to stay stress free for your perfect day. The customer service is impeccable and I work in a very tough customer service industry. I can not speak highly enough of the team at WOH.Sent on 08/07/2019

We absolutely loved our experience with Vanessa and her ladies of WOH. I was a bride who lived overseas up until 2 months before the wedding so I needed all of the help that I could get. Vanessa, Valerie, and Natalie helped plan the day perfectly. They truly made the day stress free, fun, and a dream come true day for my groom and I. They paid attention to detail and took all of my wants into consideration for how I wanted the day to go. WOH/Moundale Manor is truly a one stop shop. We had our rehearsal dinner through Loma’s, our reception catered and hosted through WOH, and hosting of bridesmaids/groomsmen the night before the wedding. Anything we needed or wanted the the night before or day of the wedding, Vanessa and Valerie were there to help.
We chose to have our groomsmen and groom to be housed together while my bridesmaids and myself spent the night in Moundale the night before. The night of the wedding, my new husband and I had a suite set up just for us in Moundale as well. This was one of my favorite things about our experience.
Our wedding cake decided to collapse before my mom could get it to the venue the morning of the wedding. BUT, it was no sweat off of Vanessa’s back. She was able to save the day and come up with an amazing back up plan. Although it is a story to laugh about now, I can’t thank her enough for handling it in the professional manner that she did just hours before the wedding.
If I could do it again, I’d do it the same. I loved my experience with Moundale Manor and the Winchester Opera House. Thank you Vanessa, Valerie, and Natalie.Sent on 12/13/2019

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.
