I could have not asked for a better location. Everyone was so hands on and so polite and definitely exceeded my expectations. Lise was amazing to work with and her crew was 100% always there. Definitely a great place to have a wedding. Very beautiful

We wouldn't have changed a thing.
When we first met with Lise at OSV, we knew there was something great about this venue. Once you go inside, you'll understand why it makes for such a beautiful wedding location. We had the pleasure of getting married here on 6/29/19.Sent on 07/28/2019
From the scenic grounds to the all-inclusive offerings, OSV provides a tremendous value for a ceremony and reception location. We also had our rehearsal dinner at OSV, and the service and staff were amazing both nights. On top of that, the food was delicious and we had a horse-drawn carry-all for guests at the ceremony; not to mention a private carriage for the two of us. All said, OSV is an experience for your wedding guests and will leave you thrilled at your decision to have your special day here.
- Use the preferred vendor list - this will make your life much easier logistically. We chose all of our vendors from this list (photography, DJ, JP) and they were all amazing! The team at OSV works very well with them; we put a lot of trust in their relationships and our day went off without a hitch.
HUGE thanks to the entire OSV team for making our day so incredible!

Wonderful wedding choice!
We had the most wonderful wedding at Old Sturbridge Village. From the beginning, Lise was incredibly helpful and responsive, and the whole team was extremely thoughtful our whole wedding weekend. Ruth was very helpful during our rehearsal in the Parsonage Barn, and even helped to change the location of a museum program on our wedding day so that we could get in to the space earlier to set up. The staff put up and took down all of our (sort of eclectic) decorations perfectly, and took care of so many details for us that helped make our day more relaxed. (A special thank you to Peg, who greeted us as soon as we walked in after the ceremony, brought us drinks and appetizers to the hospitality suite, helped bustle my dress, and be sure to come up to us to let us know when our meal was served while we were mingling at tables.)Sent on 05/25/2019
We also booked a hotel block at the Old Sturbridge Inn & Reeder Family Lodges. There were many confusing errors in the booking process and some guests found it hard to book rooms, but when we got there, the rooms were very comfortable and the staff were all very helpful and kind in person. The Signature Touch Spa was amazing, welcoming all of us all morning.
When we were reading reviews before picking a venue, we always wished people mentioned costs. So: For 75 people, the total cost (including ceremony, food, full consumption bar, gratuity, tax, and a couple optional add-ons) was just under $12,000.
Thank you, OSV! -Ali & Brendan, 4/27/19
