    Beautiful setting, amazing food, and phenomenal people!

    My husband and I wanted an outdoor fall wedding and Fruitlands was the perfect setting in the foliage! Tim was awesome to work with and made sure our wedding was as we wanted it, answering all our questions and being thorough with everything. Never had any doubts the wedding would not be as amazing as it was and we cannot thank the staff enough for giving us such a beautiful day! Plus, we were able to have our dog there with us and that just made it even more perfect! Our guests absolutely loved it!

    Absolutely perfect!

    My husband and I got married at the Fruitlands Museum in October 2018, and there is nothing I would change about it. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, with a view of Nashoba Valley made even prettier by all of the fall colors. The tent where the reception was held was beautiful, with chandeliers and string lights. Tim, the coordinator, is amazing, and he made the planning process insanely easy. He is very organized, and was consistently in touch with us throughout the process. The other staff on the day-of were also great, and a server brought us hors d'eouvres and drinks after the ceremony while we were taking advantage of the perfect sunset for pictures. The food is delicious (several people told me it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding) and there are so many options to choose from so you can really customize your day based on your budget. Speaking of budget, you get a lot of value for your money. The ceremony took place outside facing the valley with the reception under the tent. Given that we were having a mid-October wedding we were unsure of what the weather would be like, and we loved how adaptable the tent was. Do yourself a favor and email Tim now!

    One of the most beautiful venues I've ever seen. Set atop a hillside overlooking the Nashua River Valley, Fruitlands Museum provides a breathtaking view and romantic setting for weddings and other events. The venue also includes a large permanent tent complete with chandeliers and removable sides. The caterer is wonderful as well.
