About

On WeddingWire since 2016

Located on a 236-acre private estate, the historic Dell-Lea Weddings & Events is a premier wedding venue in Chichester, New Hampshire. The 230-year-old renovated barn is among the largest in the area, providing an unrivaled rustic elegance for that special day. Centrally located between Manchester, Concord, and Portsmouth, the property serves as a secluded space while also remaining accessible.

Facilities and Capacity

Dell-Lea Weddings & Events has indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception spaces available. Couples are invited to exchange vows outdoors under the magnificent gazebo, with glorious front-facing views of the mountains. The renovated barn acts as an indoor reception space that is climate-controlled and accommodates up to 180 guests. 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.

Services Offered

Dell-Lea Weddings & Events offers full wedding planning services to couples. The team takes care of all the planning needs from vendor bookings to setting up decorations on the day. The group helps with budgets, event design, reservations, and transportations, providing a low-stress experience to its clients. For ceremonies, the venue includes white chair arrangement, one-hour rehearsal, and one-hour ceremonial time in its packages.

Cuisine

Dell-Lea Wedding & Events provides catering and bar services to meet every couple's wedding needs. The chefs prepare all meals on-site and only use the highest quality ingredients available. The team offers an array of cuisine options, including hors d鈥檕euvres, plated and buffet meals, late-night snacks, and desserts. Some menu items include espresso-crusted filet mignon, marinated steak tips, orange-glazed pork tenderloin, seasonal baked stuffed chicken, and more.

Perfect Wedding

Not only is Dell-Lea an absolutely breathtakingly beautiful venue with outstanding, high-quality food, but the attention to detail given by Toutou Marsden and Laurie Russell is unparalleled. From the moment we looked at the venue to the final send-off, Toutou and Laurie didn't miss a beat. We didn't hire a separate wedding planner, but we didn't need to; we primarily used the vendors recommended by Dell-Lea (Boutique Leslie Bridal for the dress; Get Down Tonight Entertainment with DJ Jillian Mann for the music, Kiss the Bride with Alison Sica for photography, and Jacques Pastries for the cake) and everyone was so helpful and easy to work with! We added McElroy Films LLC as our videographer, and they were OUTSTANDING; Lyndsey Loring Design LLC as our florist, who created gorgeous AND AFFORDABLE bouquets, and Pixel Pod for a little bit of photo booth fun!
Laurie and Toutou answered every question that we had along the way, met with us before the wedding to cover details, and expertly guided everyone through the ceremony both during the rehearsal and during the wedding. On the day of the wedding, we had nothing to do but enjoy the event, and I can't thank Toutou and Laurie at Dell-Lea more for giving our daughter the wedding of her dreams!

The Bergeron Wedding - Dell-Lea Review 5/5

I can not praise Dell-Lea for everything that went into our wedding day! From our first wedding venue meeting, Toutou was very inviting and made us feel welcomed in our one-on-one. Between the beautiful backdrop view of the ceremony to the layout and set-up of the reception area, we left that meeting infatuated with the venue and the comfort of knowing where our wedding would be. The whole process went so smooth and Toutou guided us through every step of the way.

Unfortunately, like many newlyweds this summer, we had rain on our wedding day. The staff (Toutou and Abigail) made the transition from an outdoor ceremony to an indoor ceremony so smooth. They took care of everything and alleviated the stress and pressure of this transition of coordinating and moving decorations.

Everything turned out perfect! The timeline and coordination of the wedding events were on point, the food was immaculate, the service was unbelievable.

All in all, I can't recommend Dell-Lea Weddings & Events highly enough. Abigail and Toutou made our wedding feel special and booking their venue was one of the easiest and best decisions we made.

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!
