Great experience having our wedding at Alden Castle!
My wife and I had our wedding at Alden Castle and could not be happier with the experience that we had. From the start, we worked with Candice from Longwood Venues to plan and coordinate the big day. Candice was extremely helpful in making sure that all details big and small were accounted for. She was incredibly patient with us as we went through the process and worked to understand our dream wedding vision and helped us execute our vision perfectly. The venue itself and the rest of the Longwood staff were equally incredible. We did not need to worry about a thing day of as the staff took care of everything and made sure nothing was missed. Chef Roberto, also from Alden Castle, was responsible for all of our meals and we couldn't be happier with how all of the food turned out. Between the venue, the support staff, and the food, we cannot recommend Alden Castle enough!Sent on 01/04/2020

Amazing Venue and Staff
Alden was incredible to work with. Our coordinator Carolyn was beyond helpful every step of the way- from floor planning, to our tasting, to day of coordination. Nothing was too crazy to ask, and everything we wanted (including a pre-ceremony granola bar for a very hungry bride) was tracked down and provided! Nothing slipped through the cracks and she and her team made sure we had the wedding of our dreams. I wish I could do it all over again just to work with them again!Sent on 11/07/2019

The Perfect Venue & Vendor!
Alden Castle is a beautiful and elegant venue. From the moment we stepped in to see the Vintage Ballroom we were in love. Amanda P. helped us envision our wedding and we knew then we were in great hands. She also gave is great recommendations on what we needed, vendors she recommended as well as ideas on what to think about as we planned the wedding.Sent on 04/08/2019
On our wedding day, the staff was amazing and went above and beyond to ensure that we were taken cared of throughout the whole day. My husband and I were in awe to the attention to detail and service we received. We've received compliments all night about the food, service and overall flow of the wedding and it was all due to our amazing coordinator Candice K. She was great throughout the whole process and coordinated with our vendors. I couldn't have asked for a better team to work with to make our day extra special.
A million thanks!
