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!

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!

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!

Willowdale, let's start from day one. My husband had found Willowdale online but knew a little about it since he used to play at Bradley Palmer State Park as a child. When he first showed me the venue online I was unsure because I had always dreamed of a wedding in Boston. We booked an appointment and as we pulled up I fell in love right away, it was exactly what I didn't know I wanted. The building is amazing and filled with history and the courtyard is breathtaking, especially during the right season. After the tour with Belinda, I knew this was it but we wanted to make sure so we waited to sign the contract. Two days later, there was a box waiting for us filled with mouth-watering cookies. They knew the way to our hearts because right after we devoured the cookies we returned the contract. Any venue who can appreciate food as much as us, is definitely the winner! Throughout the next year of planning, we heard back quickly from the staff anytime we had questions and I had a lot. This was imperative for me since I am a complete control freak/planner. I was nervous when they told us we were assigned a wedding planner only 8-6 weeks before the wedding but the staff knows what they are doing. Nichole was amazing and matched our personalities perfectly. She really cared about us and we could tell we came first with her, she made sure everything was about us and done exactly the way we wanted. The day of the wedding she was amazing! She helped out with my uncle who has autism and made sure the whole bridal party left with everything they came with. My husband ordered me the wrong dish and she was there right away offering what I actually wanted, either way, you can't go wrong with whatever you choose for your meal. Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you will ever do in your life and the staff at Willowdale helped me stay as relaxed as you feel after a great massage. I can't gush more about Willowdale, the food, and the staff! Thank you so much!

Willowdale was an unbelievable venue for our wedding in August. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the tent is truly one of a kind. From start to finish, the staff at Willowdale were there for us helping us create the perfect day. We were assigned Courtney as our coordinator and she was fantastic. She was right with us the whole day and handled anything that might cause any issues. From a crying bridesmaid to a late/lost dog nanny, she took care of it so we didn't have to and could enjoy our day.The bartenders were professional and friendly and the wait staff was quick and clean. And the FOOD! All of our guest were blown away by how great the food was. I cannot recommend this venue enough. If you are looking for a truly unique and incredible venue, Willowdale is it!

We had our wedding here this past weekend and it was UNBELIEVABLE! Every detail was absolutely perfect! Our coordinator, Amy, was organized, professional, calm and didn't overlook any details. Our guests LOVED the grounds and the food and the service was phenomenal, as well. If we had to do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing!

Beyond Perfection; Truly My Dream Wedding. New to the area, recently engaged, two working professional trying to fine a venue (that could meet both our and our family’s grandiose standards and expectations,) and plan a wedding in less than six months! Willowdale Estate and Monique as our Full Service Planning, made it easy and effortless always providing me comfort and reassurance along the way. When we first starting looking for a wedding site, the process was daunting. I felt like we kept visiting “Wedding Factors” trying to get as many brides in and out in the same day! But then we found Willowdale Estate. Every part of the experience at Willowdale was special, driving through the state park, up to the beautiful architecture of Willowdale Estate (My husband is an architect and being married in a place that was visually stimulating, has history, and permanent beauty was important.) The Staff/Full Service Planning: Due to my hectic lifestyle and long hours (I am a doctor and while planning our wedding we sold a house out of state, bought a house in MA, moved, got a puppy etc Life) I opted get the Full Service Planning. Monique was amazing, smart, kind, professional, and attentive, providing a level of customer service above what is seen now-a-days. She had a way of making me feel like I was the only bride she worked with. She worked with my schedule; she was available on nights and weekends for questions or meetings, if needed. She helped schedule vendors around my schedule as well; so if I took a day off I was as productive as possible! She made the whole process manageable; developing a timeline, so at no one point did I ever have too much to do. She kept me on top of things when I would forget/avoid lol. Monique also made my vision of a perfect wedding come true. I mean my wedding was everything I dreamed it would/could be… Truly I think Pintrest was jealous of my wedding lol! Monique was a joy to work with.

Willowdale Estate helped us have the perfect wedding! They are experts on knowing how to run a weddings and the service met all our expectations. All of our guests were coming up to us to compliment the venue, food, drinks, and dessert. Willowdale Estate is unlike any other venue and the best way to describe it is magical :) We were supposed to have an outside ceremony but due to weather we had to move it under the tent which for any bride is always a little disappointing. Willowdale didn't call that until 2:30 for a 5:30 ceremony which a lot of venues call it that morning so I was very happy they did everything possible to make the ceremony happen outside. The rain option at Willowdale is really good though and the tent never had any flooding which is really important to make sure you have a stress-free wedding! Kelly Hart was our coordinator and all we can say is that she was truly outstanding to work with! We loved her and she made sure we had everything we needed on our wedding day. I probably didn't listen to her enough and should have ate more!

Willowdale Estate was everything that we wanted for our wedding venue. We fell in love with it when we first visited because it was not only a beautiful place, but in our meeting Belinda emphasized that Willowdale makes the planning process as easy as possible. They provided a very detailed event detail package that listed all the possible catering, bar, and add-on services at various price points, and were able to help us pick the right details to fit our budget. Throughout the planning process, they checked in and made sure we were on track. Kelly, our wedding day coordinator, was super detailed oriented and made our day picture perfect. From coordinating with all our vendors, to answering our questions, to setting up our decorations the day of, and calmly guiding us throughout the actual wedding day, she helped make our wedding day as stress free, easy, and fun! It was also a huge help to be able to drop off decorations a few days before, and when Kelly said she would take care of setting it all up the day of, we knew we could trust her! For our guests, they definitely enjoyed that the ceremony and reception were in the same location, and raved to us about the food. It was also great that it was 45 minutes away from the city, which made it easier for our guests travel-wise. We would highly recommend Willowdale to anyone, and definitely recommend just visiting to check it out!

We had a truly stunning wedding and amazing day at willowdale. From our perspective it was pricey, but the whole wedding industry is ridiculously upcharged at baseline, so given willowdale is an outdoor historic wedding venue with a reasonable rain/bad weather plan (flooring under the tent, covered transition area to the house from the tent, heaters and fans available), the pricing seems to be around market value. With that said, the investment paid off on the day of our wedding: our planner (Courtney) was organized, professional and flexible. Everything went smoothly and everyone was happy and well-fed from start to finish. She even "staged" our photo/dessert/misc displays so it looked like something out of a magazine. Also, people complimented the food for weeks afterwards (for reference since I was a skeptical bride when reading reviews: Argentinian guests complimented the beef). We would do it there again in a heartbeat!

The Willowdale Estate is absolutely wonderful. Words can not even express how happy I am with the way our wedding went. We had an outdoor tent wedding and it was absolutely magical. The grounds of the Willowdale are gorgeous. Nichole (Our Willowdale coordinator) and her team did a great job at making sure our day ran smoothly and that everything was all set up perfectly. Nichole not only made sure our day was running smoothly and every little detail was set, she also made sure that Joey and I were okay and had everything we needed throughout the day. Now lets talk about the food... the food was so delicious! All of my guests were raving about it. I highly recommend the mac n' cheese bites! We could not have picked a more perfect place to have our wedding

We truly cannot put into words how much we loved Willowdale and how perfect they made our wedding day (and the entire planning process leading up to the wedding). From our initial tour we instantly fell in love with this venue. The mansion, courtyard and tent setup are all absolutely breathtaking. It was supposed to thunderstorm all afternoon and night the day of our wedding (it ended up staying dry for the most part), but we didn’t stress for a moment for a simple reason – the backup plan is just about as nice as the outdoor space. The entire staff is extremely professional, supportive and amazing at what they do – they are pros and take their work seriously, but are also light and easy to deal with. The online planning portal was an extremely helpful resource and made the planning process simple – and the preferred vendors that we used were absolutely wonderful. Our wedding coordinator Courtney was SPECTACULAR at making sure our big day was beyond anything we could have imagined. We cannot say enough good things about her - she is a magician. There was a seamless flow from our ceremony to cocktail hour to reception and Courtney ensured that we had nothing to stress about the entire day. She was so kind and helpful throughout the entire process. The food was absolutely delicious and guests are still telling us how great everything was – the appetizers, entrees, and of course the incredible COOKIES. The presentation of all the food was like a work of art, too. We are so incredibly thankful that we had our wedding here. Willowdale is a truly magical place and we cannot recommend it highly enough.
