The search is over!
From the second we pulled into the Grand View we knew it was the place for us! The grounds are beautifully maintained, and cocktail room, ballroom and bridal suite have all been updated.Sent on 06/27/2021
The team at the Grand View is INCREDIBLE! At our initial meeting, Danielle gave us a detailed tour before we sat down to discuss our options. We never felt pressured to make a decision. We truly feel like they want the couples to make the best decision for them.
Once we put down our deposit, we began to work with our wedding coordinator, Gina. Gina is FANTASTIC! As we planned a wedding in Covid, Gina was always there to answer questions, offer advise, or put our minds at ease. Gina and the team helped to seamlessly move our outdoor wedding to an indoor ceremony by the fireplace. Even though Memorial Day Weekend was unseasonably cold and rainy, the team made the room so warm and inviting.
The other team members at the Grand View were also amazing. The ceremony went smoothly and was so well organized. The food was delicious and we had so my passes appetizers and a four course meal. Our guests are still raving over the food! Executive Chef Linda and her team made sure that everyone’s dietary needs were met. We were so impressed that they took such care to make sure any allergies or concerns were taken care of. The servers were excellent and kept the courses flowing through the night in order for us to get on the dance floor as quickly as possible. The bartenders were also excellent helped to make sure our guests had all the drinks they could need.
If we could give any advise to couples looking for a place to get married, stop looking and work with the Grand View!! They will be sure to make your day so special and more importantly as stress-free as possible!
Grand View's reply:Megan & Derek, we are SO thrilled you had the most amazing experience working with our Grand View team! Thank you for the outstanding detailed review! It was truly a pleasure working with you and an honor to plan your sweet celebration. Thank you for choosing to celebrate your love with us. Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!

Our special day was a fairytale!
Head over heals in love with the Grand View!
My husband and I had the wedding of our dreams and owe it all to the amazing team we worked with.
Our tour with Danielle was so informative. We got a complete walk through of the grounds and before we even sat down to discuss specifics, I knew this was the venue for us. Danielle went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable and assured us we would have the wedding we always wanted.
Fast forward a few months and the world shut down due to Covid. We ended up moving out our date and Gina our event coordinator helped us navigate through the craziness and unforeseen future of what was to come. As the pandemic improved and our countdown was getting closer, Gina was sure to keep us up to date with the MA state restrictions so we could make sure our day was as closed to what we had envisioned.
Our food tasting was to die for and we were so excited that our friends and family were going to be able to have the yummy appetizers and delicious deals on our big day. Chef Linda went above and beyond to make sure the food was exactly what we wanted. Let me tell you, the day of she did not disappoint, friends and family are still raving about the pulled pork tacos, burger sliders and bourbon glazed chicken, just to name a few favorites!
I know people always say, something will come up at your wedding that you weren’t planning for. Well I can say, that we must be the exception to the rule, or maybe it was the fabulous staff but it was a smooth, stress free, fun, amazing day for all!
We got married on site and also had a first look as well. Gina and Kelly absolutely blew us away with decor setup! The venue looked like an absolute fairytale. From the champagne wall, to the flow of decor in the cocktail room, to the beautiful bridal suite we could not have asked for more.
The waitstaff and bar team were absolutely top notch! They made sure the drinks were flowing for our rowdy crowd and were on top of everything.
Our bridal attendant Chris was AMAZING! She truly thought of everything and before we would even ask for something, she was there with whatever it was in hand, I swear she is incredible. She made sure we tried all of the food and that our drinks were taken care of at all times, she is a sweetheart!
We truly cannot thank the Grand View enough! The team they have works together like family and it definitely came through. They 100% without a doubt always put the client first! Your special day is just as special to them as it is to you and they will do whatever it takes to create that for you.
If you are wedding venue shopping and want to have the most beautiful day, as stress free as possible, stop your search here. The Grand View is the place to be.
We truly cannot thank the team enough!Sent on 06/13/2021

Amazing Staff, Venue, Food, & Experience
We had our wedding at Grandview this past May 2021 and it was absolutely beautiful!! The whole team there was amazing, specifically Gina who was so supportive over the last 1.5 years!Sent on 06/15/2021
She kept us up to date with everything going on in terms of guidelines and restrictions, helped us adjust our wedding date from March to May, and helped us alter our plans from inside to outside, in the end we couldn't have imagined it any other way! We were so happy that we did our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all outside even though we were hesitant at first especially knowing how beautiful inside the ballroom is. Outside ended up being amazing, the property is so beautiful and all or guests are still raving about the outdoor set up, the amazing food, and the great staff who helped throughout the event!
Grand View's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words! We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we're so happy to hear we hit the mark for you. We wish you and Josh a lifetime full of love and happiness!
