Melissa and the staff at Winterthur did an absolutely outstanding job. Everyone was so attentive, and the day ran seamlessly. Melissa was always happy to answer any questions we had, and was a pleasure to work with. Thanks for making our day so special :)!!!

Winterthur was the best venue. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour at the reflecting pool, which was absolutely stunning. Since we lucked out with the weather, we were able to have our reception al fresco at the Visitor Center patio. All of the vendors that we used were from Winterthur's preferred vendor list, and they were all spectacular. Melissa and the entire team at Winterthur executed the day perfectly. Melissa is a great communicator, and is prompt and professional with her email responses. The catering was phenomenal, especially the cocktail hour bites (there were fun, reasonable, and creative upgrades - such as angus beef sliders paired with Dogfish Head 120 Minute tasters!). We cannot recommend Winterthur enough!
