    Thank you so much Lynn for taking the time out to write such lovely review! We really do try to simplify the wedding planning process- there's no reason why it should be so hard! We look forward to working with you and Carter for your big day in March 2021! :)

    Elated with bbv!

    I cannot say enough good things about BBV! Our wedding day was perfect! My husband and I received SO many compliments! Perry (Owner) knows what he is doing - Christina and Jenn (Wedding Coordinators) were amazing and a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend this wedding venue to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, rustic, modern venue with an outstanding waitstaff! ❤

    Perfect Wedding Reception 08.12.2021

    I can’t recommend Bear Brook Valley enough if you are planning your wedding!

    We originally booked our wedding for 08.02.2020 after setting up an in person tour where they were very welcoming and up front with pricing. During the planning process, we were appointed a coordinator who was very responsive to any questions we had via email.

    In June of 2020, we expressed that we wanted to move our wedding reception to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and BBV worked with us to move the date without any fees or hassle- I was SO grateful for this!

    When August 2021 finally came we had the most magical day. The bridal and groom attendants are AMAZING (Kasey literally saved the day multiple times over) and the day of coordinators helped everything run smoothly. It was the wedding we had dreamed of and it was truly all thanks to the unbelievably fantastic staff at BBV.

    Other than the process and team, you can’t say enough about the venue. The grounds are gorgeous with so many great places to take photos and the cocktail hour, reception hall and ceremony sites are clean, new, and so beautiful. There are so many options for adding on extra features, picking your menu, rain back up ceremony sites, and food to go for guests. Not to mention the food is incredibly good and the cocktail hour is filled with tons of choices.

    If you’re considering Bear Brook Valley for your wedding, book a tour and see for yourself! Thanks BBV team for the wedding of our dreams!
