    Perfect Wedding at Dell-Lea!

    Even though our wedding was almost 2 months ago, I still tell everyone who will listen how amazing the team at Dell Lea Weddings and Events is. When our original venue canceled our wedding with no notice, we were heart broken. However, it turned into the largest blessing in disguise we could ever imagine! We knew from the second we walked in that we had found a new venue that was 100 times better then our first. From the beautiful grounds, to the amazing food, to the gorgeous reception space, Dell Lea was everything that we wanted in a wedding venue. In addition, Toutou was able to pick up right where our previous coordinator left off and made the transition seemless. We could have not asked for a more perfect wedding day. Toutou ran the event effortlessly, and made sure the only thing we had to worry about was enjoying ourselves. Thank you Dell Lea for hosting and helping us throw our dream wedding!

Wishing you a wonderful life together as husband and wife. Love - Toutou & David and the Dell-Lea Family.

    Elegant and Rustic

    Ashley, at Dell-Lea was professional and easy to talk to. She made me feel comfortable and within minutes of walking in and meeting her I knew it was the place.

Toutou Marsden

Toutou Marsden

Owner

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!
