The barn is fitted with exposed beams, a custom timber-made bar, a private dressing room, a large dance floor, and a veranda overlooking the property.

    The best day of our lives

    My husband and I knew we wanted to get married at Dell-Lea the moment we pulled up the driveway. This beautiful 236 acre farm was ours for the day and all of our guests kept telling us how intimate and special it was. The venue already comes with twinkle lights and white sheer curtains making it looks so gorgeous and cozy when the sun goes down and the party starts! The grounds are beautiful manicured by the owners themselves. The whole day and night was so magical. Ashley, the event coordinator was so attentive and sweet. She was completely on top of her game.
    Ashley and Toutou were both amazing and always got back to me right away answering all questions I had. I even got a chance to chat with the head chef after the wedding who I couldn’t thank enough for putting out such a delicious dinner.
    The whole Dell-Lea team is pretty special, and they worked hard to make our wedding day extra special too. They care a lot about what they do and it shows!

    Dell-Lea Weddings & Events's reply:

    Rachel, it was my absolute pleasure to work with you and Ben. You are two of the kindness people I have ever met, and I loved being able to witness your deep, passionate love for each other. Thank you so much for choosing us to host your wedding!

    Perfect venue!

    Dell-Lea was the first venue in a handful of tours we did around New Hampshire and it turns out we should have just signed on the dotted line initially, because nothing else met my wife’s and her family’s criteria so well. There aren’t many venues which can combine the rustic interior style with rolling and well maintained grounds, plus real kitchen and bathroom facilities.

    Some people have the energy to plan all the details of their big day… not us… which is where Dell-Lea continued to shine. We took advantage of the coordinator package and the ability to use decorations and items held by Dell-Lea which helped take away what would have been a lot of extra stress and end-of-night cleanup. Ashley was very easy to work with throughout and was very patient with our questions and requests.

    We had been told that Dell-Lea shines with their food and we’d whole heartedly agree, as did our guests.

    While we were extremely lucky to have beautiful, early September weather, we slept way better at night knowing that the venue could still put together a picture friendly indoor ceremony if needed.

    Though we didn’t have the same level of facetime with them, we’re also extremely grateful for the rest of the staff of servers, bartender, and kitchen staff who did their jobs so well and got everyone fed and well lubricated for the dancefloor.

    With everything said and done, we couldn’t have asked for a better venue and staff to shape our wedding day!

New Hampshire is where I call home after doing some extensive traveling abroad and relocating back to New England again. I was blessed to have had fulfilling career in the Financial Industry within Sales, Events, Marketing & Project Management. In 2016, my husband and I purchased Dell-Lea to achieve our dream of owning our own business. Since then, we have hosted many beautiful weddings on our property. Our fresh new ideas, commitment to customer service, penchant for great food and down-to-earth approach have quickly catapulted Dell-Lea to the short list of sought-after wedding venues in NH. We love hosting weddings as we get to be a part of your "best day ever" memories. That why we love what we do!
