We got married at Thistle Golf Club this past weekend and it was truly a fairytale wedding!! Besides the stunning clubhouse and grounds, the service was impeccable. I could not have asked for a more perfect experience!! We fell in love with Thistle the first time we saw it, we visited every potential venue, Thisle was our "total package" wedding site. We had a destination wedding, so we only visited two times during the planning period. Not one single detail was missed. Our wedding and reception were perfect!

We choose thistle golf club as the venue for our wedding, and we are so glad that we did! The thistle clubhouse is castle-like inside and out, and the views of the prestine golf course add to the effect. Jamie Roderick was very helpful in all aspects of the wedding planning process, and accomodating in every sense of the word. He was always prompt in responding to questions and flexible to help us create our own vision. The day of the wedding was what really made us glad that we choose thistle. The pictures do not do thistle justice. The ceremony site, reception area, and the dance floor could not have been more perfect. But the best part by far was Jamie and his staff. Chef Arthur is amazing. He guided us through entree choices, hor dourves, salads, etc.. and he absolutely blew it out of the water the day of. I am still getting compliments from guests about the food. By far one of the best filets many of my guests have ever had. In addition to this, the presentation of the food was magical. Each table was served individually in a choreographed manner, like something you would see in a movie! The bar service was also impeccable. Guest wait times were very short, and the bar tenders are well educated on mixed drinks. If you need proof, go to thistle for lunch and get a bloody mary, they are better than any restaurant i have tried. I could go on for pages about this venue and the staff! Thank you Jamie and the thistle staff! We were blown away!
