Nothing but wonderful!

We recently got married at Thistle and I am SO SO SO glad we choose them as our venue!
When we did our walk-through before choosing them, they went over and beyond answering any questions we had. And when we actually booked them, nothing changed at all! They were super responsive, easy to talk to, and super helpful with anything we needed!
I want to give a huge shoutout to Chris who is the go-to man the day of our wedding! To say he helped is an absolute understatement. We honestly would not have had the perfect wedding we had without his help the day of!
Between Chris, the entire team, and how BEAUTIFUL the venue is, I can not say how thankful I am to have had them apart of our big day.
Seriously. I can not recommend Thistle Springs Ranch enough!

Amazing! Highly recommended

Thistle Springs Ranch was the most amazing venue! The gorgeous arch in front of the water was perfect for our outdoor ceremony. One of the best things about TSR is that I didn鈥檛 even need to purchase any rentals because it has so much beauty on its own (always nice saving money)! The people at TSR are amazing. I was always in contact with Meggan and she was so helpful and answered all my questions! And Kris does it all! From setting up the chairs and tables, making sure my husband and I got food, and ensuring everything ran smoothly... he was so attentive and great! Kris made sure I did not have anything to worry about on my day. I also recommend going with Lagniappe for florals because Ann knows the venue like the back of her hand and everything just turned out more beautiful than I could have ever imagined!

Dream come true

Not only is Thistle Springs Ranch GORGEOUS, but the family that owns it are some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. Pretty severe flooding occurred in the weeks leading up to my wedding and while the venue was fine, getting out to the property became challenging. Ann kept me informed every step of the way and they ensured our guests made it safely to our wedding, all on their own dime. I fell in love with the space when I toured it, but I fell in love with the people who own and manage it because of their commitment to their brides and making weddings as perfect as possible. I don't have a single negative thing to say about TSR and everyone we interacted with. It is a breath taking venue owned by truly wonderful people.
