I had the wedding of my dreams!
I had a great experience working with he entire team at Thistlewood. I had to plan my wedding in Texas while living in Virginia, so planning a wedding long distance is not easy! but working with Leslie and Tricia it was honestly a great experience for me as a bride which gave me piece of mind knowing I was working with a professional and flexible team. The venues if gorgeous with plenty of options where to take pictures, the food was absolutely delicious, and the fact that they offer so much in their packages you wont go wrong by choosing to work with them!Sent on 06/30/2019

Loved the venue!
I had such a wonderful time at my wedding! Tricia and Leslie sure do an amazing job to work everything out. I was even able to text Leslie whenever I thought of something random and wanted to confirm. It was a great pleasure to work with them as they put everything together better than I expected. I would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 12/05/2018
