Magical venue with great food!

We had our wedding in the Vintage Ballroom, a lovely room with a great structure (main ballroom and adjoining upstairs area with balcony - the main ballroom hosts the ceremony and then gets flipped for dinner during cocktail hour upstairs). We had an 80-person wedding and the Vintage Ballroom felt like the ideal size. The ceilings and chandeliers are really pretty. Everything went really smoothly during the day of; there are multiple personnel present at the event to make sure you have what you need and everything is working well. Food was delicious, both appetizers and dinner. I would be very pleased with the cider-glazed salmon at a restaurant. Alden Castle helped make our wedding extremely special and relatively painless.

The amazing and supportive team behind Alden Castle make this venue more than worth it!

Where do we even start? Alden Castle is gorgeous! We didn鈥檛 need to spend too much on our florals or decor because the beauty of this Tudor-style venue absolutely spoke for itself. Our guests were in awe of not only the architecture, but also the professionalism of the staff, the incredibly scrumptious food, signature cocktails, and the well-coordinated structure of the evening. In the days since our reception, our guests cannot stop raving about how delicious the food has been, and how impressed they were with the waitstaff. My husband and I have felt so constantly supported by the entire Alden Castle staff.

Jenna in particular has been an integral part of planning our big day from start to finish. She鈥檚 been a fantastic support to us throughout the entire process, wearing many hats while also effortlessly coordinating a million moving parts at once for many other couples besides us. She is an absolute PRO. If you find yourself on the fence about choosing Alden Castle (or any other Longwood venue for that matter), consider that as part of working with this venue means that you would get to work with a world-class Events Specialist that is dedicated to making sure everything goes right on your big day. It has been a joy to work with Alden, and every single person on their staff! Big shoutout to Gary and Niveah who also made sure that my husband and I had everything we needed, whether it be more drinks in hand or to make sure we ate enough food. It was also due to them that our reception went so smoothly and words cannot describe how thankful we are for their help.

As other folks have mentioned, though this isn鈥檛 an inexpensive option for your wedding day/reception, you absolutely get a lot of value for what you pay for and in our opinion is 100% WORTH IT.

The MVP of our wedding

We got married at the Alden Castle in September 2024 and can confidently sat that having our wedding at the Alden was the best decision we made during wedding planning. They are a professional, full-service venue and make the wedding planning process smooth from start to finish. We worked with Andrea on our contract and Jenna on planning details and both were extremely kind, professional, and knowledgable. The space itself is so breathtaking that we were able to go pretty minimal with decor and it still looked stunning. On the day of, we had a whole team of people who supported us and made the day flow smoothly. Jenna, Michael, and Ceville were present throughout the evening to make sure we had everything we needed, from another drink to a towel for our champagne opening. They paid attention to details and made us feel so special and relaxed on the day of. They do have a minimum spend, but even with 120 guests and a full open bar we were under that spend and able to do a really cool champagne tower installation with the rest of our budget. Overall, the price is 100% worth it. I wish we could do it all over again!
