The most beautiful venue!!!
Castle in the clouds was absolutely the most perfect back drop for my wedding - could not have dreamed of a more perfect spot. Jessica was the greatest and was so incredibly helpful in planning such a special event during this absolutely crazy year. She’s sweet, caring, and so knowledgeable. Get married here if you want to not worry about a thing while having the most picturesque venue New Hampshire has to offer.Sent on 10/13/2020

Best of the best
Castle in the Clouds really needs no review. The historic and scenic beauty of this spot are really unparalleled. What makes or breaks this venue is the wedding coordinator, Jessica. I found her to be so helpful from the start. I planned this wedding across the country, but was able to stay in touch via email and phone calls. We were also able to meet up once at castle in the clouds, only to meet with freezing cold temperatures and hail. Even that did not deter us. Jessica was very knowledgeable, and professional throughout the process. She is patient answering questions that I’m sure she has been asked a million times. Somehow, she managed to make me feel like it was the most important wedding even though she had just done 11 the month before. Did I mention that when it took 20 minutes to figure out how to bustle my dress, Jessica was on her hands and knees alongside my sister and sister in law to dig through my dress. Castle in the clouds will always be beautiful, but Jessica made it so much more special, and such an easy, relaxed process, I can’t imagine my big day without her.Sent on 09/27/2019
Castle in the Clouds is a wonderful place to have a wedding. The views, the grounds, and the venue buildings are perfect. The staff is accommodating and extremely professional.
Castle in the Clouds is a beautiful and historic location! The views are breathtaking and the entire estate is radiating with romance. The staff is gracious and friendly across the board. This place is like New Hampshire's own mini Downton Abbey. I enjoy the opportunity to play may guitar here when I can to create a romantic or 1920s mood. Can't say enough about the wedding planner Jessica and her staff. Professional & creative.
Castle in the Clouds is one of my favorite venues for performing ceremonies. The setting is stunning and the Wedding team is outstanding. We have an excellent working relationship that is collaborative and truly client-centered. At Castle in the Clouds I am able to fulfill my promise to my clients that I will create a wholly original ceremony that lives up to their vision and wishes.
