    Breath-taking Venue

    Nothing is more beautiful than a winter wedding reception at Winterthur. The transformation of the visitor's center into a magical paradise created by warm lights and beautiful greenery made this spacious venue feel intimate. From the chef to the service the dinner was served quickly and the food was impeccable. Guests still rave about the outstanding food and the friendly and personable servers who took care of our guests as if we just walked into a 5 star resort! Melissa Sapio is pure perfection - from the first visitation, food tastings through the finite details of planning a wedding reception. The evening was flawless! Thank you for hosting our marvelous reception filled with love and pure joy. We wish we could start the whole evening all over again. Richard and Morgan Winter

    Incredible venue and staff

    We got married at Winterthur on 9/22/18 and could not have had a more beautiful and seamless wedding!!

    Melissa and Brian were great to work with from our initial tour to the tasting to the wedding. Melissa was so helpful pricing up rentals and all sorts of catering options throughout the planning process. I really don’t know how she kept all of the little details straight but everything on our wedding day was exactly as we had planned and went off without a hitch.

    As for the venue itself, we’re still getting compliments on how beautiful and different the property is. We used the Reflecting Pool area for the ceremony and cocktail hour and Clenny Run for dinner. We got insanely lucky with the weather so didn’t need to use the rain plan which was the Gallery Atrium, but it’s a very pretty backup plan. It’s hard to come across a venue as beautiful as Winterthur where you can rent it all to yourselves and that’s exactly what you get here. Definitely go take a look at the spaces - you’ll love it!
