To say that Trish and her staff were amazing would be an incredible understatement. From the moment we walked into the venue and were greeted by Trish, it was clear that hosting weddings isn't just Trish's job; it is her passion. She treated us like family and was incredibly accommodating to the wedding vision we shared with her. From the first meeting to the end of the wedding, her communication was impeccable and she always made time for a phone call or an in-person visit. As far as the venue goes, breathtaking would be another understatement. The garden was beautiful and the reception area was stunning. The food was more than delicious. If I could recommend Birchwoods one hundred times over, I would.

I seriously don't know where to start with how genuinely AMAZING Birchwoods is! We had the pleasure of working with Trish and Pj, for 1.5 years on all the details of our wedding. It started in April of 2019, when I was tired of looking at venues and had seemed to run out of options. We walked into Birchwoods, we were greeted by Trish and her first question to us was "tell me how you met". I knew from that moment, we were getting married at Birchwoods without having even seen the grounds. Trish, got to know us, treated us like an extension of her family, she was regularly in communication with me throughout all the planning. We were supposed to get married 5/2/2020, and in March our world got turned upside down with a global pandemic, Trish immediately worked with us on a reschedule date. We got the new date of 7/31/2020 on the calendar and just days before our wedding the State guidance for venues changed yet again. We had to make the decision to move our wedding to our home, and have the most amazing outdoor wedding and reception. I called Trish and her and Pj, came out to our house. They walked the property, came up with a plan to cater our entire wedding here on-site at our house with all their staff. When I tell you that the Birchwoods staff went ABOVE and BEYOND for our wedding, I genuinely mean it. They kept the wedding flow together for the night, put out the most beautiful display of apps, worked the most amazing buffet line and gave our guests the best experience. The best part of the night was Trish walking up to me and telling me that a couple of her new staff asked "are all weddings usually this fun". They are so professional to work with, will treat you like people and not line a number on their calendar that just "another wedding". They will allow you to make the day entirely what you want and to me I couldn't put a price tag on that. I literally still text with Trish, check in on her and the staff, I visit regularly and I have become a weekly customer buying the family meals they offer too - check out their Facebook and follow for those details. This past year Birchwoods added so much to the property, they put on a beautiful deck attached to the ballroom and totally renovated the gardens when you can get married on-site. Although we are sad that experience was robbed of us, we can vouch for how immaculate the grounds are and how beautiful your day can be. My husband and I, have already agreed to renew our vows in 5 years in the church we were set to be married in and have the reception at Birchwoods, where we were supposed to on 5/2 and 7/31... Until then, I will live vicariously through each couple who gets to step foot on the grounds and have the most beautiful Birchwoods wedding. If you are reading this, you're likely engaged and we wish you the best of luck planning your dream wedding experience!

From the moment we first visited Birchwoods, we knew it would be the perfect venue for us. The ballroom has beautiful tall glass windows and a brand new deck and the outdoor area is large and has a nice view and was perfect for cocktail hour and pictures. The food was delicious and the service was great. Also, Trish is absolutely amazing! Trish was always quick to respond to us when we had questions and was so kind throughout the whole process. She has a huge collection of decorations (basically anything you could possibly need) that she let us use and decorated everything so beautifully! She helped the reception run smoothly and we couldn’t have been happier with our experience!

It’s great to work with someone so passionate about what they do. Trish works so hard to make sure the day is the best. The venue is beautiful, such a nice rustic touch. And of course the food is amazing!

My husband and I were looking for a place to get married for this year and when we walked into Birchwoods we fell in love right away. Trish makes the inside look very rustic, which was what we were looking for. She had open communication with us the entire time we were planning. Our wedding had to be postponed from April to August due to Covid-19. We were slightly bummed since we wanted to have our wedding in the beautiful banquet hall, but Trish and her staff went above and beyond to make our outdoor August wedding even more amazing than we could have imagined. Everything was perfect and they took care of every detail the day of and days leading to our wedding. As the bride, as soon as I stepped foot on the premises I felt stress free and relaxed. The staff was very attentive to my husband and I, and our guests had the best time. The food was awesome and Trish and her staff took every precaution to make us and our guests feel safe and comfortable. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts, especially since I thought our day wouldn't be the same with the change!
