    Amazing! Couldn’t have asked for more

    We chose to get married at Dell Lea after touring nearly ten venues, and one of the largest deciding factors was after meeting Toutou, who gave us our initial tour. Dell lea was the most upfront venue that we toured about all of our questions, pricing, and what we were looking for- it was clear there was nothing to hide from the beginning and we were so comfortable. When we came back to sign our deposit, David sat down with us a second time and answered even more questions! Along the way, we reached out many times and we’re always answered promptly and with enthusiasm and David, Toutou and Ashley were SO helpful! Every additional vendor we hired commented to us about how much they enjoy working with/at Dell Lea for weddings and all of the vendors working together with the venue day of was seamless. Ashley was outstanding at coordinating all of the vendors functioning so well together! When the details meeting and final planning came around, their system made an overwhelming process easy and clearly outlined for us what was left to do. Ashley and Toutou ran our entire rehearsal so well and timely and met our every request! We could not have had the wedding we had without all of them, and especially Ashley on the day of who ran the whole timeline for the ceremony and the evening, fluffed the train on my dress for walking down the aisle, helped with clean up, even taught us how to cut our cake for photos, just to name a few things. We were also complimented many times on the beauty of the property and on the food.We are so grateful to everyone at Dell Lea for working so hard to make our day easy and memorable and we truly could not have asked for a better venue or a better team

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!
