Wedding day perfection!
I cannot say enough about Holly, Whistler, or the rest of the staff at Whistler’s Knoll for making our wedding day a perfect event. From the first contact with Holly, I simply cannot say enough about her professionalism, organization and friendly demeanor. I knew I liked the venue but meeting Holly and Whistler sealed the deal for us.
The grounds are fabulous. The gardens, pavilion, barn, grapevines, bridal suite, groom room, and even the chickens running around made for a fun and beautiful venue. We get frequent comments from our guests about the venue and the staff and how beautiful everything was and how gracious and polite all of the staff were.
We were able to meet with Holly on numerous occasions to discuss options. We wanted an open bar and Holly was open to our wants with that, making it work on their end. We also had a band that needed to see the venue ahead of time and Holly was available to show them around.
We were able to rehearse there the night before, which was perfect and allowed us o unload our stuff prior to the wedding day.
On our wedding day, it was to rain. Holly was in touch with us early regarding Plan B and we decided to wait it out. She was open to our wishes with this and thankfully we were able to have our ceremony outside (my wish!) The day itself was a dream. I had a wedding coordinator who handled everything but she even commented on how well things were run and the issues were minimal!
Overall, you cannot find a better venue. It’s beautiful and the staff makes it all worth it. I looked at every venue in the area and the only one that was the total package was Whistler’s Knoll! We loved our day Holly and love all of you for making it memorable too!Sent on 10/29/2019

Due to Covid-19 we had to cancel our big wedding down in Florida. I found Whistler's Knoll on weddingwire.com while looking for venues. I thought I would have a tough time finding a venue on such short notice and having to plan a wedding ceremony and mini reception in 3 weeks however, I was able to get a hold of Holly at Whistler's Knoll right away. Holly was amazing, always available when we needed her and made sure we felt like we were being taken care of. Though, due to the virus we had restrictions, stuck to the 10 person gathering limits the governor issued, we made everything work out. Whistler's Knoll went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect and the setting was so beautiful. I couldn't have wished for a better setting to say, "I Do". We will definitely be back there to check out their upcoming events, it is such a wonderful venue!Sent on 04/27/2020
Whistler's Knoll Vineyard's reply:We sincerely appreciate your kind words & we were beyond emotional (happy tears) to help you pull off your special day on such short notice! You & Wesley are such a beautiful couple & we wish you a HAPPY LIFE together! Love, Holly & Whistler

I cannot say enough about Holly, Whistler, and the staff at Whistler’s Knoll in making our wedding day as perfect as it could be! The weather was cause for concern and Holly was in touch with us early on to discuss the plan.
Our initial contact with Holly received a prompt and thorough response. She made herself available in all aspects, responding timely and answering the millions of questions I had. They were willing to tailor our day to exactly what we wanted, offering suggestions as we needed them. We also were able to have our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner there the night before, alleviating some stress for the actual day.
The bridal suite and the groom room are awesome, nice areas for each group to get ready. The grounds alone are amazing and we received so many comments on the beauty of the venue from our guests. The bar service was excellent, with many guests commending the quick and friendly service by the bartenders.
If you are looking for a unique place that will truly give you a day to remember, THIS IS IT. My wedding day was perfect and Holly and Whistler played a big role in making it that way. We love you guys and want to do it all over again!Sent on 10/29/2019

We are saddened that the pandemic has impacted so many lives. People have lost their jobs, and others have lost family and friends.
Some of our clients have had to reschedule their weddings until next year. Because of that, we are offering some special pricing for the 2020 season if you are a bride & groom who has to change original plans.
Please call so we can gather enough information to be able to put together a special offer for you!
