Choosing Winchester Opera House for our reception venue was the best wedding planning choice I made for our big day. Amanda, one of the event planners, seriously saved the day when she drove down to our ceremony venue (in a different town) to run our ceremony when the staff at that venue was no where to be found. Even though the cost was a little out of our budget, the staff treated us like we had paid three times as much as we did. They made our wedding week as stress-free as possible. Great food, service, and venue overall.

Can't say enough wonderful things about the Winchester Opera House/Moundale Manor and their team. Angela made me feel so at ease about all the details of my wedding -- she literally took care of everything! Vanessa and Ed are such gracious hosts and the event couldn't have gone better. I will admit that I have pretty high standards, but all of my expectations were definitely exceeded! Five stars! :)

I chose WOH after deciding to change my venue at the last minute. Vanessa and Angela were so professional and kind! They went above and beyond to make my dream a reality! I truly cannot begin to explain how happy and thankful I am to have chosen WOH. They are a one-stop-shop-- the flowers (AMAZING!!!) can be done by Neal their in-house florist. He is SO talented and you will NOT be disappointed! The food was superb! I have received so many compliments! Everything can be performed by their phenomenal team (decor, food, flowers, cake..) Having your wedding here will truly relieve so much of the wedding stress you often hear about.

Vanessa and Angela were prompt and helpful! The service they provide is top notch and I feel so lucky to have found them! You will not be disappointed with their work, I have zero complaints and I am not easily wowed.

The Opera House was amazing! Angela was so accommodating and really helped pull my dream wedding together. I was also so impressed with all the venders the opera house had to offer. Neil did amazing on my flowers,(one of my favorite parts) and the cake lady provided me with the exact replica of the cake I showed her. Planning was made so easy and fun! Highly recommend the Opera House to anyone one!

The Winchester Opera House, Moundale Manor, and all of the properties held by this venue are absolutely beautiful! Vanessa, the owner, Angela, the event coordinator, and Neal, the florist are so nice to work with! The value, the "extras", and the different options they provide for the money you spend cannot be beat! Our guests are still saying that my daughter's wedding was beautiful, the best one they'd ever been to, and so much fun! If you don't have a venue yet you should really check this one out! You can't go wrong!

The Winchester Opera House was a fabulous venue! We started working with them a year and a half before our actual wedding day, so I feel like they became close friends during that time.The Moundale Manor was so beautiful for my bridesmaids and I to get ready in and they even let us stay there the night before. The attention that we got from Vanessa and Angela really made us feel extra special. I had a very specific idea of what I wanted my wedding day to look like and the staff at the Winchester Opera House worked really hard to make that happen. They also reccomend vendors they work with on a regular basis. We used a cake baker and DJ that they recommended and they were fabulous also! If you are looking for a beautiful place to get married, and staff to take care of all the details, this is your place! Go check them out, you'll be glad you did.

The planning and implementation of the wedding ceremony and the reception were outstanding, even with the rainy conditions during the wedding rehearsal and with cloudy and possible rain the entire day of the outside wedding. By having the entire second floor available for the bridal party, and also having separate quarters available for groom and groomsmen to dress and hang out during the wedding day, provided outstanding accommodations and eliminated lots of commuting problems. This made taking pictures before the wedding ceremony more enjoyable and less stressful for everyone.

One recommendation would be to provide a portable sound system for broadcasting the voice of the minister and the bride and groom. With our wedding outside, people sitting several rows back had problems in hearing them say their vows. Also, I would highly recommend having the reception at the Opera House. The facilities are beautiful and provide a great place to have either a very formal or a relaxed/casual reception.

Yes, I would highly recommend this vendor to a friend.

Angela and Vanessa's teams could not have made our day any more special. From the first meeting, they were very accommodating, worked so hard to ensure our needs were met and that we were happy. The venue was amazing and Neil's decoration was superb. He was able to take our vision and turn it into a reality. The bonus of having the Moundale Manor to prepare prior to the wedding as well as a wonderful location to spend our first night as a married couple was amazing and such a great value. I would absolutely recommend this venue for anyone having a wedding or nay other event for that matter. Absolutely wonderful!!

We had a wonderful day preceded by attention given to all questions and scheduled meetings. Angela was so helpful before and during our ceremony. Great opportunity for a wedding in Kentucky.

After leaving our first meeting with Angel and the WOH we knew it was the right location for our wedding and reception. Everyone on the Opera House staff was great to work with and went above and beyond our expectations. We had our ceremony at the Historic Church, our rehearsal dinner in the Gallery and our reception in the ballroom. The church was the perfect size for our 150 guest wedding. It is beautiful, classic, and made for a lovely intimate ceremony. The ballroom is a beautiful and unique space. It has so much personality. We did not have a wedding planner in our budget, but working with Angela was the next best thing. We also used their recommended bakery, their Florist Neil, and their piano player Sarah. It was so convenient to have some many vender recommendations. It saved us so much time and stress looking for venders. Neil was happy to help us create the design we wanted with our flowers with in our budget. Our cake was delicious and beautiful. Sarah did a great job with the music and was very flexible. We wanted non traditional music and she found piano arrangements for everything and did a beautiful job playing. Everyone was so easy to work with and made our event so special. Vanessa and her husband treated us like family while we were saying at Moundale the night before and after the wedding. Last but not least the food was amazing! We have heard so many compliments on the food and the venue from our guests. Everyone loved it as did my husband and I. We were so happy with our choice to use the WOH for our special day!
