    Thank you, thank you to Michelle and Cindy for making our wedding an amazing and memorable day! The venue is beautiful, the staff is accommodating and responsive to any changes that you want. Anything is possible! This is not an inexpensive venue, however you absolutely receive what you pay for and Cindy listens closely to every concern you have and works with you every step of the way. I could not have asked for a better event coordinator to help bring our vision together. We will miss working with you!

    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!

    Alden Castle: A Longwood Venue's reply:

    Thank you for the wonderful review, Michael! We are thrilled that Candice, Chef Roberto, and the entire team at Alden Castle were able to make your wedding and planning process enjoyable. We would like to wish you a lifetime of love and happiness. Please stay in touch.

    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!

    Alden Castle: A Longwood Venue's reply:

    Thank you for the wonderful review, John! We are thrilled that our team was able to make sure you had the wedding of your dreams and that no one got hangry on their wedding day.
