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

Where to begin? Whistlers Knoll is everything you want in a venue vendor. Beautiful venue? Check! Responsive management? Check! Assistance in making the day run smoothly as possible? Check! Beautiful chickens in the vineyard? Check! Whistlers Knoll has it all. Holly and her team would respond to my (many) emails in less than 24 hours. Most of the time I received an answer within two hours. TWO HOURS. I barely get a response back from my husband in TWO hours.
The day of went by quick (everyone says it and it is so true) but without a hitch. Everyone loved the venue. Her team helped out with everything. Tables and chairs were moved what seemed like in seconds. Plates and cups were never left on a table for more than a minute or two. Without holly and her team We don’t know if our day would have been as flawless as it was. If We could, we would do it over and over again and wouldn’t change the venue.

We wanted something outside. It was exactly what we were looking for. Gardens, games and plenty of space for everyone. We paid for the venue and his parents paid for the beverage bill. I did put an approx price of what the venue and cocktails came to.Sent on 12/26/2018

We absolutely loved having our wedding at whistlers. We would highly recommend! They were super easy to work with and made our wedding everything we could have dreamed of. Holly was also super helpful in the planning process, she has tons of advice and different vendors. They even put the chickens away for us during the ceremony because I am terrified of chickens. The bridal suit worked perfect to get ready in. Super cute and cozy. There are also so many places to take pictures at the venue. Also- it was amazing that they had tables and chairs, speakers, cake stand, bartenders, plus other things-it was so much less to worry about. I have zero negative things to say!Sent on 12/26/2018

Whistler & Holly were absolutely wonderful to work with! They made our wedding planning process run smoothly; they were quick to respond to any emails or phone calls, and they basically had everything laid out for us along the way to keep us organized. The venue was more than we could have asked for; people are still talking about our wedding months later! They partner w/a few approved caterers, which made our food selection super easy, and they had every option available as far as a full bar goes for our guests! They even had local suggestions for us when it came to searching for DJs/music, florists, bakeries ~ I would recommend Whistler's to anyone, 5++ stars!!Sent on 01/01/2018

Tom, Holly and the entire WK team were phenomenal to work with for our wedding reception! From start to finish the planning process was exceptional. The care & details throughout the entire grounds blew our guests away. We could not have asked for a more perfect venue and staff to work with. Highly recommend WK for your event.Sent on 10/25/2017
Thank you Tom & Holly for everything!

Holly and Tom were the kindest people to work with. They were incredibly helpful and flexible through the whole process and the day of the wedding. They let you pick up your decor and gifts the next day, which was great to not have to worry about the night of! They even encourage guests to park cars overnight if needed! The venue is beautiful!! Would definitely recommend booking Whistler’s Knoll to anyone considering if for their venue!Sent on 10/07/2017

Cassidy · Married on 09/02/2017
We had our wedding reception there labor day weekend this year and it was BEAUTIFUL. We booked Last November, and visited the vineyard and even when everything was winterized and dead it was still GORGEOUS! Holly and Tom were so wonderful to us. Holly was very quick to respond to all of my questions. The day of the wedding they were very accommodating! They are family run business and they always have your best interest in mind. Because of how they do the bar we actually got money back because they only charge you for what is used. We also had the option to reserve the Friday before the event and got to have our rehearsal dinner there and we ordered in Pizza. was VERY convenient and such a nice option made the wedding day 100000 times less stressful! I will forever be thankful to Holly and Tom for making our day so perfect! it was picture perfect and everything we needed was there! Please consider them for you wedding!!!Sent on 10/04/2017

Holly and Tom at Whistler's Knoll are the best. They are extremely personable and accommodating. We couldn't have imagined our wedding any other way.

Allison · Married on 10/03/2015
We had our Fall wedding here in the beginning of October. Tom and Holly are beyond incredible at what they do, their passion for Whistler's Knoll radiates in every aspect of their business. I started looking for a wedding venue about a year in advance, they kept so involved with my wedding planning almost every month until the day arrived. Although our wedding day was on the chilly side, they did everything in their power to make our wedding warm and comfortable for every who attended. The grounds are meticulously kept, and there is something that catches your eye and takes your breath away around every corner. I highly recommend Whistler's Knoll as a wedding venue, because with Tom and Holly at the helm, I know you won't be disappointed.Sent on 08/17/2016
P.S. We LOVE the chickens, they stole the show!
Ben · Married on 08/22/2015
We had our wedding here a couple of years ago in August and I couldn't of asked for a better place to have our reception. Holly and Tom were very professional and accommodating (within reason of course) of all of the requests we had for decorations and such. They gave us plenty of time to get every thing set up and take it down. They answered all of our questions in a timely manner and well. We were so happy with how everything turned out that I would absolutely recommend Whistler's Knoll as a place for your wedding. Not just for the shear beauty of the location, but also for how great Holly and Tom will be!Sent on 06/28/2017

Whistlers Knoll was absolutely the most beautiful place we could have gotten married this past June, 2015. Not only was it the perfect setting, Holly and Tom were extremely accommodating, friendly, and helpful in the entire process of planning. The vineyard itself was simply stunning, while the barn, pavillion and landscaping created a magical venue in the evening. Highly recommended for any event!!!Sent on 08/18/2015

Our wedding ceremony and celebration on May 30th, 2015 at Whistler's Knoll was AMAZING! Tom and Holly are truly special people who have found the right business to be in. Not only did they make sure that ALL the details - big and small - were taken care of on our wedding day but they also made sure that our guest felt very comfortable and welcomed at their venue. From the first time I met Tom and Holly and all the way through the planning process they were right there ready to help, answer questions, give suggestions and just make the whole process very pleasant. And on top of all that - their place, Whistler's Knoll is a spectacular place! It has so many unique features that you can't help fall in love with. The gardens, the pavilion, the barn and vineyard are so inviting - you just want to walk around and spend some time taking in all the fun and beauty that surrounds you. And there is more....so much more I could go on and on! If you have not visited Whistler's Knoll you must go see it and seriously consider this place for your wedding venue. If you are looking for a quaint or unique place to have your wedding that is not run of the mill banquet hall - this place is for you!Sent on 08/13/2015
