The Thaxton is an awesome space to host your special event. The décor is unique and very beautiful. Peter and Kim are very easy to work with and provide excellent service. Everyone at our daughter's wedding commented that the event was one of the most beautiful they had ever been to. A good portion of the guests arrived (at our request) in "Gatsby" attire. The evening was very fun, and everyone got into the theme very quickly. You can't go wrong with The Thaxton. Give them a call and see for yourself!

I didn't know what to expect when my daughter and her fiancee took me to visit The Thaxton for their upcoming wedding but I was open to what they both wanted. Upon entering, I was amazed at the beauty of the venue. As we toured, I could see my daughter's face light up and we knew this was "the place". I can not explain how Peter and Kim made us feel like family. Going through the process of all the arrangements, Peter was quick to help. He had some wonderful ideas as wellas he was open to our ideas and things just fell into place. The day before we were able to bring in our personal touches, which made 'wedding day' so much easier. The day of the wedding could not have gone much smoother. Our guest were in aww from the moment they walked in to the moment they left. The food was perfect, the DJ worked wonders with the crowd and the evening was a success. If you are thinking about getting married, please give this venue an opportunity to make your day special.

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!!!!!

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!!!!! Read less

Peter and Kim were so much fun to work with and so professional. When I was getting the full wedding jitters Peter was so reassuring and made me feel that absolutely everything would go as we had planned it and he was absolutely right.
