Willowdale Estate was an amazing place to hold my daughter's wedding! The venue is beautiful, the staff professional and the food outstanding. The planning process all went smoothly and on the day of the event everything was perfect. The gardens were in full bloom providing a spectacular setting for the ceremony. Our family and friends said it was the best wedding they have every attended. We would highly recommend Willowdale!

I cannot say enough good things about Willowdale. For starters, it is a simply magical setting. Many guests commented that it felt like a fairytale and it was so convenient to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in the same place yet very different settings (courtyard, mansion and tent). In addition to the setting, the service you receive from the team at Willowdale is unmatchable. They provide you with a coordinator that starts with you 6-8 weeks before the big day. Our coordinator, Courtney, could not have been more sweet, helpful, responsive and an all around rockstar. She was so organized and made the day run so smoothly without us having to think about everything. She did everything from monitoring weather minute by minute, handing out corsages without me even realizing, directing everyone where and when to walk, bringing us drinks, making sure we ate, bustling my dress, packing up all our stuff at the end of the night, the list goes on. And even though you don’t get a coordinator until 6-8 weeks out, the rest of the team is there from the day you first contact them to help you with everything and anything. In addition to the service and setting, the food is amazing. People kept commenting on it and asking for our caterer (which is just the willowdale itself). They can customize meals and accommodate all allergies. Willowdale made our wedding so perfect and we cannot thank them, especially Courtney, enough!

Willowdale is absolutely, insanely AMAZING in every category. The grounds, both inside and out, are stunning. You can easily get away with bringing no additional decor because everything is already so gorgeous. Our wedding coordinator, Nichole, made everything so easy and stress free. She thought of everything - re-purposing ceremony flowers & bouquets, setting up the personal decor we did bring, bringing my husband & I appetizers while we took pictures during cocktail hour. She was the best!! Everyone said it was the best wedding food they had ever had and the staff was so nice! Willowdale just makes planning a wedding so easy & you're guaranteed to have a successful, unforgettable night. Thank you Willowdale!!!!

We can’t recommend Willowdale Estate and their staff enough. After we met Belinda on our private tour on there was no doubt in our mind where we would get married. Once we learned there was a date available in the Summer of 2018 we jumped on the opportunity to book it. We were quickly synced up with Nichole Armano, our fabulous wedding coordinator. Having Nichole with us during the planning process put us at ease- we can’t thank her enough! She tactfully guided us and reminded us always to keep our vision and the comfort of our guests in mind. When we had questions about even the smallest detail Nichole drew from her years of experience and provided just what we needed to make the best decision. Nichole was in lock step with our vendors to ensure everyone was on the same timeline to set themselves up for success. Nichole calmly guided us through the day allowing us space to enjoy our time with family and friends. We had our dog there with us to be part of the ceremony. Nichole made sure he had water throughout the day, such a small detail that had totally slipped my mind but she was all over it! We had been told by so many couples that they didn’t have time to eat or enjoy the food at their own wedding; Nichole made sure this wasn’t the case. She brought us appetizers and checked in with us to make sure we had food and drinks all night. Working with Nichole was truly a collaboration and she was the best sounding board and coordinator we could have asked for –we are happy to have met her during this chapter of our lives. The entire Willowdale staff were amazing the day of our wedding. The grounds were immaculate and the set up was exactly as we had outlined. The food was amazing. Our guests raved about how delicious everything was – the biggest hit were the lamb loli pops. The service during cocktail hour and all the way through the ice cream sundae bar and late-night snack was impeccable. If we could get married all over again we would still choose Willowdale.

Willowdale was a dream! We had the exact wedding we wanted there, and it was gorgeous. Our guests were blown away and although most were local, many had never heard of this hidden gem. We found it by going to a friend's wedding there. When I told her we were also considering getting married there she was so excited and encouraged us to go for it because her own experience there was so positive. The venue itself is gorgeous, from the indoor spaces (including three large suites to get ready in) to the garden courtyard where we got married surrounded by blooming peonies and butterflies, to the tent where we had dinner and dancing. The food was what sealed the deal for us - it is delicious, and the guests couldn't stop raving about it (I would happily take it above most restaurants). Belinda, our initial contact, is so warm and excited to meet each couple that we booked almost immediately. The whole process of planning was super easy as they have tons of resources online and vendor lists. I filled out the menu and time line rough- ins months in advance so I only had to make small tweaks as we got closer to the day, which made planning even easier. The only small downside was that our wedding planner was supposed to put together a sample tray of each app for my husband and myself and bring it to us in the library so we could make sure to eat. This got missed and I didn't get a single appetizer (which I was really excited about!) at my wedding (& the same thing happened with the late-night snack). Overall we loved Willowdale and are encouraging all friends and family to get married there so we can go back as guests and enjoy the food, architecture and joy of more weddings there!

From day 1 Willowdale was our favorite venue and they lived up to that every step of the way! Our booking process was drawn out for a long time due to some deaths in my family between touring and booking, and they were so flexible, helpful and kind through it all. Then the planning team was always quick to get back to my questions and requests during the time before we met our event manager. And then when we met Nichole we were over the moon! She had everything handled, it was beautiful, well planned and if anything went wrong I certainly didn’t know about it! I knew I could trust her and we were in great hands with her on our day. Also- the food is INCREDIBLE. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the food and all the grounds were! It was perfect from beginning to end- definitely will be back for other events and celebrations! Thank you Willowdale Estate!!!

In choosing Willowdale Estate, we got so much more than just a beautiful venue for our wedding - we got an amazing team and the support we needed on the most important day of our lives. And though almost every compliment we could dream of seems to have already been paid to the team at Willowdale Estate by the other reviewers here, we just need to do our part in pointing to Belinda, Chef Ben, and our wonderful coordinator Nichole for making our day absolutely perfect. They went to greater lengths than anyone could have possibly imagined to make our wedding day the best it could be and more. I think the best way to prove that is with this small anecdote. Leading up to our wedding, Nichole asked us if following the day of, we would like to save the top layer of our wedding cake to take later to eat on our honeymoon or an anniversary. We declined out of hand, assuming that the cake would be gone by the time everyone had a piece. The day after the wedding, we were on our way back to Willowdale to pick up our decorations before heading our on our honeymoon and were thinking out loud to each other that the only thing that disappointed us is that we didn't take that top layer of cake back with us. We were absolutely cursing ourselves. But when we met Nichole at the venue we decided to ask anyway, just out of a small hope that they for some reason had saved it. And by this point you should know that she absolutely did. She absolutely thought of everything and it is a testament to the point that the Willowdale team will exceed even your wildest expectations and dreams to make your day the most perfect it can possibly be. Thank you again Belinda, Ben, and Nichole for everything that you and the rest of the Willowdale team did to make our wedding day the best day of our lives together. We will cherish every memory we had there and with you all forever and always. Sincerely, Laura and Ludwig Gerdes

Willowdale Estate is a fairytale venue. If you are lucky enough to snag an available date, you will be so thankful you did. First, we worked with the kindest and most thorough Sales Manager named Belinda. She listened to every detail, asked such helpful questions, and made sure she tailored things in our proposal to help make our day unique and perfect for us. I knew just from meeting with her that we would be in good hands at Willowdale. No sooner had we decided on Willowdale than fresh baked chocolate chip cookies arrived at our doorstep! We knew their level of attention to detail was exactly what we wanted. Working with our wedding coordinator, Courtney, was a dream. She answered every email quickly and knew how to calm my nerves. She followed up on important details and never let one piece slip through the cracks. Our whole day was perfect. She had incredible suggestions, and worked so well with every vendor. Several vendors actually asked me for her contact information to thank her directly for all of her help! To top it all off, the food is exceptional. We had our rehearsal dinner at The Hart House, and the owner there told us that the chef at Willowdale had actually worked at Hart House previously - what a great place to hone your craft! Willowdale was so smart to choose a chef from such a wonderful restaurant, and it pays off in spades - Ben worked with us during our tasting to perfect the menu, and we got tons of positive feedback on the food. If you want an intimate, charming venue with detail-oriented and truly kind staff who make your day feel SO special and tailor-made, PLEASE book with Willowdale. You will be rewarded with a lifetime of happy, cherished memories. Thank you so much, Willowdale team!

Willowdale Estate is indescribable however if I had to choose a word I would choose Magical. From the moment my now husband and I drove to and walked throughout Willowdale I knew this was it ! This was the first and last placed my husband and I looked at. It is the perfect New England wedding venue. My wedding in April was beautiful very nice weather as well however I believe a winter wedding here would be amazing as well with all of Willowdales features. My guests can not stop talking about the amazing pianist they had and how delicious all the food was. The details of the estate are breathtaking ??The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. I will definitely be going there for some of there lovely events throughout the year as well. I can't thanks Willowdale enough for my big day !

There isn't anything but great thanks to Willowdale and its staff for hosting our ceremony and reception, but being the perfect venue to get married. From beginning to end, the staff our coordinator Courtney made planning soooo easy. Everything about the space makes having a wedding inside the mansion feel homey and intimate. You won't need to do much decorating because the mansion speaks for itself. Food was immaculate, bar service was top notch, and the cookie bar was delicious. Best decision to have our wedding here. Once as you get inside and around the grounds of the estate, you will see why this is a popular place to get married. Our families and guests loved every minute of it. Still talking about it to this day.

Willowdale is the most amazing and perfect place to get married! When you drive up the road and set eyes on it for the first time you'll fall in love. It has a magical feel and the people that work there make everything run smoothly and perfectly. Amy was our wedding coordinator and she was so sweet and totally understood our vision. You can bring in your own decor and they will set it up exactly like you want. From the tiny details of the candles to the floor plan everything is perfect! The food is phenomenal and all our guests were raving about it they include cookies at the end of the night, which were a huge hit! I can't say enough good things about Willowdale we really had the most perfect wedding and wish we could do it all over again!
