This place was amazing!! I could not imagine a more beautiful place to get married. The food was by far the most delicious food I have ever had at a catered event and even better than food I have had at fancy restaurants. The staff was professional and provided excellent service. Our wedding coordinator outdid herself by adding lots of little touches to make it a uniquely special experience. I cannot say enough good things. While this was not an inexpensive way throw a wedding reception, we feel like we more than got our money's worth. Everything was just that good.

We recently had our wedding at Willowdale Estate and we were extremely pleased with the entire experience. From Kaitlin's tour of the property and guidance during the sales process to Amy's flawless execution of the planning from start to finish on the wedding day. I was unfortunately quite sick during the days leading up to and day of the wedding. Amy Sleeper took care of all the last minute details and got me through the day with a smile on my face. Amy Sleeper was the angel on my shoulder that kept me on my feet and everything going smoothy! Our love and gratitude to Amy!!! I received many compliments from my wedding party, family and guests about the food, service and atmosphere. The food was absolutely amazing, hands down best wedding dinner ever. I heard this from every single guest. Still weeks later my friends and family are still talking about the food and the service was impeccable. Willowdale Estate isn't just a wedding venue, its a unique place that makes you feel enchanted in such a way as to seem removed from everyday life. I would highly recommend this venue! Leah

My husband and I were so lucky to work with the Willowdale team for our magical November wedding! They are experts at surprising and delighting not only the future bride and groom, but also the wedding guests. Everyone was extremely professional and helpful, the food was hands down the best meal of my life (and that includes those amazing cookies!) and anytime we had even the most specific question, we were given plenty of resources to make the best possible decision. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

My husband and I got married at Willowdale Estate this past November and we have nothing but high praise for this incredibly beautiful venue and well-organized, very helpful staff. We had an indoor mansion wedding and reception in early November. We were all so happy and comfortable inside the mansion, with the warm glow of candlelight in the glass conservatory, the gorgeous wood, hot apple cider, and cozy lit fireplaces. The catering was fantastic and our guests frequently commented how it was the best wedding food they had ever tasted! The appetizers were oh-so-good and of course their chocolate chip cookies and seasonal mini pies were delicious! Our family and guests were also very impressed with how well organized the staff was and how everything flowed seamlessly from one event to the next. Everyone at Willowdale, from our event coordinator, to the catering staff and servers are really so professional and exceptional at their jobs. My husband and I are both doctors and recently moved to New England when we got engaged, so we didn't know the area and we knew we wouldn't have much time to meticulously plan every detail of our wedding day. That is one of the main reasons we chose Willowdale Estate for our venue - because they anticipated our every wish and pulled it all off flawlessly. We really just had to show up and enjoy each second of the day. Our event coordinator, Nichole, went above and beyond to help make our day special and we couldn't be more grateful. She even helped us find babysitters for my nieces and nephews, and the sitters were able to watch the kids on the upper level of the mansion while their parents danced downstairs. The mansion really felt like our home that day, absolutely full with love and happiness, and I wish we could have stayed there forever! It really was such a beautiful day and we are so happy we decided to celebrate at Willowdale!

My husband and I got married at Willowdale Estate November 4, 2017. When we went to see the place for the first time, we were given a private tour of the grounds and they are so beautiful! A stone mansion in the middle of a national park in New England, not much can beat that! Learning about the history of the estate made it even more magical and almost made the place come alive. We didn’t look anywhere else and booked that day! As planning began, I emailed the Wedding Planning Team countless times and they were always very patient and quick with their responses. We do not live in the States and planning a wedding from a distance is not easy. Our coordinator was Nichole and I cannot put into words how amazing she was! She understood my vision from a very poor explanation I gave her and magnified by a thousand! I can honestly say I was not stressed about the décor placement, external vendors coming to set up, or even where I had to be when. All I had to focus on was marrying my best friend. The staff are a very well-oiled machine! Wedding food has a stigma and Willowdale’s kitchen shatters it! The hors d'oeuvres were spectacular and the meals were outstanding! They even let you customize the meals which was perfect! All of our guests were talking about how delicious it all was! We had two signature drinks and they made test runs to make sure they would taste perfect! During the reception, Nichole kept checking in to make sure everything was running smoothly and made sure we ate in between socializing. I surprised my husband with a themed pie station and the reveal was awesome! All the little details that I would not have thought of Nichole had and it truly was a perfect wedding!! Thank Nichole and to all the Willowdale staff who helped us start off our new life together in the most wonderful way!

Willowdale Estate was an absolute dream come true! My (now) wife Andrea and I had looked at a handful of venues before stumbling on to Willowdale Estate in a wedding magazine. Immediately drawn in by the beauty of its exterior, we decided to visit it for ourselves. On our first visit, we were sold! Kaitlin Umbro did an incredible job showing us around the property and went over every detail we needed. We were so excited that we booked our date with them before we had even left! From there, Willowdale had sent us a detailed packet going over all of the different options that they offer, and Kaitlin and Amy Sleeper helped us to narrow down exactly what we were looking for out of our big day. Amy was our wedding coordinator, and did an amazing job of keeping us in the loop in the days leading up to our wedding and helped us to put together exactly what we needed! We were so impressed by the professionalism, friendliness and responsiveness of everyone at Willowdale, the team is truly amazing! I can not say enough good things here!! I could go on all day about how delicious the food and drinks are at Willowdale. And if you haven't tried one of their famous chocolate chip cookies yet, you are seriously missing out (I'll take this moment to sincerely thank Willowdale for the surprise packages we've gotten at our doorstep since working with them!) We've gotten so many compliments from our guests since our wedding day on how delicious the meals were, the chefs at Willowdale are truly incredible. Our big day was absolutely perfect, and we could not ask for more from this venue. They hosted a night that will forever be the greatest night of our lives. If you are getting married in Massachusetts, this should absolutely be your first pick! - Chris & Andrea Carney

Leading up to my wedding, people kept telling me that it would not be perfect-- I'm sure they meant well, but clearly they had never worked with the Willowdale :D Our wedding day was phenomenal: everything was seamless and gorgeous, from the vendor drop offs to the getting ready suites to the ceremony to the dancing to the final send off. Everyone had an amazing time and the venue couldn't have been more beautiful. Here's the key, though: any place can be beautiful, but the planning team is where the value truly lies, and the Willowdale is UNMATCHED on that score. I was an event planner in my last job, and I'm naturally an anxious person, therefore regrettably uptight about details, but Courtney (Super Courtney, as we came to call her) was with me every step of the way: responsive, kind, thoughtful, and on top of every last minutia. Saying that she handled everything calmly and gracefully doesn't really begin to cover how she exuded this amazing sense of calm and above and beyond competence. The short version is that I would recommend the Willowdale in a heartbeat for a stunning and unforgettable wedding, and I will be singing Courtney's praises for life!

Willowdale Estate lived up to all of it's hype and more when it came to our wedding. Months later guests are still talking about how great the venue was. From planning to the actual day, our planner, Courtney, was on top of it every step of the way. Courtney, and the whole events team treats each couple as if they are family, and really want to make each couple's wedding day dreams come true. The catering, the event space, events team...no small detail is overlooked when it comes to Willowdale. We only wish we could do it all over again!

We recently had our wedding at Willowdale Estate and we were extremely pleased with the entire experience. Kelly was my personal coordinator and was wonderful. She answered all of my questions and e-mails quickly and comprehensively. The day of the wedding she was attentive but not over bearing. I received many compliments from my wedding party, family and guests about the entire staff and Kelly in particular. Kelly and the staff took the stress out of the day and made sure everything went as planned. I would highly recommend this venue!
