    This is it!

    My now husband Toney and I searched for the perfect venue for a while. Based on a friend's suggestion we checked out Thornewood. It was breathtaking and felt special. The premise is in a very quiet neighborhood and is perfect for a fairytale ceremony. After the friendly walk through with Christiana, we were set to book the Thornewood Castle! They provided a preferred vendor list; we ended up hiring most of our vendors from that list and very happy. They allow outside vendors as well as BYOB which is a huge plus! We postponed our wedding (due to COVID), and the owner and everyone was very accomodating. The total rent hour @ the venue was 6 hours and we had a very short and sweet ceremony; I would say to consider extending hours. While our wedding was perfect, we could have enjoyed this beautiful venue a bit more by extending an hour or two. Everyone had so much compliments to make about the venue - it was very gorgeous, peaceful, and intimate. Would highly recommend to couples thinking of dream-come-true wedding at a classic & classy venue, this is it!
