I loved getting married here! Tim made everything so easy and comfortable that i was so calm the day of my wedding - and leading up to it. The staff was AMAZING, we had one woman who catered to our every needs bringing us drinks, making sure we got all our appetizers at cocktail hour, and even brought my husband extra bacon and pork belly croutons just because we mentioned how delicious it was and how much he likes bacon. I do not remember her name but i hope she knows that she was amazing. Our craft cocktails were a hit - everyone kept talking about how awesome they were even though i just sent ingredients to Tim, they really nailed it. You can hear Devens in the background a little (gun shots) but it did not bother us one bit! The view is amazing and i just can't say enough wonderful things about Fruitlands.Sent on 10/28/2019

Beautiful venue, incredible experience
We absolutely loved having our wedding at Fruitlands. The location is gorgeous and the staff go above and beyond to make everything just right. Tim is incredible- so organized, responsive, flexible, and fun to work with. He made us feel calm! And the Fireside team was great- the food was delicious. More than one guest explicitly told us that they couldn't believe that all of the steaks were cooked so well and all came out at the same time!Sent on 10/24/2019
Every detail was attended to and we had a wedding that felt totally “us.” We can’t recommend getting married at Fruitlands more highly.
Absolutely stunning vistas!!!!!!! Spring, Summer.....and oh my gosh Fall (foliage). Truly breathtaking. Phenomenal chef. Cuisine that is special and beautiful and oh so tasty. A fantastic choice for a couple who wants gorgeous photographic memories of their wedding day!
Wonderful location to perform at and wonderful staff and location !
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.
