    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!

    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.

    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!
