My husband and I knew Birch Wood Vineyards was the one the moment we pulled into the parking lot for the venue tour. We were captivated by the well-manicured grounds, rustic details and professional, accommodating wedding coordinators. We took ...
notice of the paved, level parking lot, the dedicated space for cocktail hour with a long bar, serving top shelf alcohol, the reception room with a dance floor big enough for our guests to enjoy, the onsite bridal suite with built-in stations for hair and makeup, the grooms suite, the extensive menu options and ability to customize, the amount of décor the venue had available for use, if desired (table numbers, lanterns, candles, votives, signs, etc.)… I could go on and on!
I really want to highlight the exceptional Birch Wood staff who made our entire wedding experience as stress-free as possible. Throughout the planning process, we worked primarily with Melisa and Kasia. They were accommodating, responsive, always prepared for our meetings, following up via email the same day and even updating the online portal. The online portal was another huge plus - you can view your wedding timeline/details and vendors, and complete the seating chart all from a portal they set you up with). On the day of, Kasia, Alison and Scott were there to ensure everything went smoothly. Kasia was there to greet us in the morning and get us settled in the bridal suite. She also met the vendors as they arrived and setup our decor. Alison pinned the boutonnieres, helped me with my shoes, bustled my dress and ensured we were always enjoying ourselves. Scott was always visible. He greeted guests and most importantly, made sure my grandparents, who have walkers and wheelchairs, received special attention. My grandmother still raves about Scott and how he got a golf cart to take them inside after the outdoor ceremony. She jokes that she felt like she was the bride, and that could not make me happier. At the end of the night, the staff packed up the décor we brought and made sure nothing was left in the onsite suites, making the "clean-up" aspect still hands free for our families.
Our guests continue to say how our wedding was one of the best they have ever been to and that is the ultimately compliment. We had an unforgettable experience and cannot thank Birch Wood Vineyards enough.
