Perfect location for our big day!
My husband and I could not be happier that we chose to have our wedding at The Well. From the moment we had our initial meeting at Thornton, we fell in love with the location and knew we had to get married here. Andreá and Parian were so helpful throughout the process and very responsive to any questions we had leading up to our big day. We loved having our wedding at Thornton! We were the first wedding in Cooper’s Hall and our wedding went off without a hitch! I couldn’t say enough good things about this venue and the staff. Our guests had such a great time and we still are getting compliments from our guest that this was their favorite wedding they attended. Thanks again Thornton!!Sent on 07/10/2021
