The Thaxton was the perfect venue for my wedding reception! Everyone on the staff, especially Peter, was so immensely helpful both before and during the big day. Whenever I ran into an obstacle such as not having heavy enough table card holders, they offered an excellent solution. They really know what they're doing and were so great about always knowing where myself and the groom knew where to be.
The elevator is fantastic if you have guests with handicaps. The multi-level set-up gave us a lot of flexibility and everything was truly perfect. We also used their catering and it was DELICIOUS. I got so many compliments on the food. He gave us helpful photography hints, and it seemed like there was someone there to take care of everyone at all times.
I wish I could get married here again!

We recently used The Thaxton for our rehearsal dinner and could not have been more pleased. Peter and Kim made the process of planning an easy yet enjoyable time. From the initial walk through to the tasting to the event itself, all details were handled flawlessly. They do a great job of making you feel more like friends than clients. They were quick to answer any questions and were willing to go the extra mile to make sure the rehearsal was exactly as we envisioned. There is literally not a single thing that we looked back and thought could have been done better. They know what they're doing and will have your guests talking about the one of a kind experience for a long time. We have recieved so many compliments on the unique event space since the dinner. I would highly recommend letting them make your special event one no one will forget!

I couldn't have asked for more for my wedding at The Thaxton. It is the perfect combination of elegance, originality and most importantly fun. Peter and Mad Dog, along with DJ Uptown, truly know how to throw a party. It was easy to plan, and I had every confidence that things were going to be just as I wanted. Peter's flexibility to "make it happen" is refreshing. Numerous guests have told us, it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to - I contribute that LARGELY to the venue and the atmosphere it creates!!! AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!!!

We chose The Thaxton as the venue for our wedding reception. When we first walked in about a year ago, we immediately knew we needed to look no further. From the moment we stepped in, we were sold. Such an amazing building with beautiful art deco on the main level and one of the coolest bar/dance atmospheres downstairs that we ever saw. We didn't even bother looking at the other candidates, there was no need. Kim was awesome to work with, very flexible and open to requests. She even met us at our bank when we had a last minute change in the payment arrangements. They gave us 2 hours to set up, not that you need to do much, atmosphere is already superb. Peter was great to work with during our reception, even went as far as to fetch us drinks while we tried to greet each and every of the 150 guests. We couldn't have asked for things to go better. Check out their Facebook page and see for yourself. We are so happy we got to celebrate in such a unique and beautiful environment. ER & RD

The Thaxton is one of a kind! Where do I even begin?? Well for starters Peter is amazing and literally helped me all year with questions and concerns. He was so professional and personable. He took a lot of the stress of planning off my plate and trust me with planning an out-of-state wedding that can be a lot... The day of the wedding was literally perfect! The venue looked beautiful! I had guests coming up to me telling me it was the best wedding they have ever been too. If you are looking for a unique intimate spot to have a wedding or event this is your place. I could not have asked for a better venue or wedding day. C Thanks again Peter and Kim!!

We decided on the Thaxton because of its intimate atmosphere. From the rehearsal through the end of the evening the Thaxton and its staff was absolutely amazing. We never had to ask them to do anything. The speed and ease from which they transitioned from the ceremony to the dinner was flawless. The bar and dancing area was perfect for the number of guest we had. The Thaxton staff made my daughters night the focus and their performance only enhanced the evening. I am forever grateful to them for their hard work and professionalism. When my last daughter gets married the Thaxton will be our second wedding with them......

The Thaxton was the absolute best choice my fiance and I could have ever made during our wedding planning. If you are like us and looking for a more intimate venue with character to boot this is your place! The Thaxton was an absolute dream; as you walk into the building you are greeted with the most gorgeous art deco murals, gold crown molding, and a spiral stair case leading to the upstairs mezzanine. After dinner, you take an old time elevator to the speak easy lounge in the basement. The speak easy was just what the party needed to get started! Our guests are still talking about what an amazing experience they had; we had 110 people for a sit down dinner. Peter, Mad Dog, Kim and the entire Thaxton staff was such a pleasure to work with. During the planning processes they were there by our sides with any questions or concerns we had, and they made our day run so smoothly. My fiance, myself and all our guests had such a spectacular night I couldn't ever imagine having our reception anywhere else. We also used Bridget from "flowers to the People" florist, I HIGHLY recommend Bridget! She made The Thaxton look even more romantic and special than it already is, and she was a pleasure to work with as well! The only negative was that the night was all too short! Good Luck in your wedding venue search; I highly suggest you schedule a walk through with The Thaxton to see how spectacular this venue is!
