Southbridge Hotel and Conference Center was the perfect choice for our wedding reception! The grounds are beautiful and the marble staircase inside is a great backdrop for formal photos. My husband and I did the majority of our planning long distance from NC & they were incredibly accommodating of our limited scheduling opportunities. We worked with Lisa during the beginning planning stages and she was very nice and easy to work with. Our menu tasting was a great experience and they went all out, really helping us understand what our guests would be enjoying.
For the remainder of the process we worked with John and Jennifer and they were AMAZING! The took care of every little detail we could possibly think of and even some that never occurred to us. The hotel took care of setting up everything including photos, place cards, favors as well as the normal room set us and they worked seamlessly with our outside vendors as well.
Our wedding was the weekend of the Pan Mass Challenge bike race but the hotel did not let that chaos affect our day at all. Nate Lucier at the front desk even went out of his way to help book me a suite the night before the wedding (even though the room was previously booked) so that my bridal party would have somewhere with enough room to get ready and I wouldn't have to deal with any extra travel stress the morning of our wedding.
Our reception was absolutely perfect. The food was delicious, and the timing between courses was perfect. Everything looked beautiful, all our items were arranged perfectly and John and Jennifer took care of everything we, or our guests needed.

Lisa and her team created a warm and personalized atmosphere for our themed wedding rehearsal dinner and after party. The conference center has beautiful amenities and picturesque spots for wedding photos (i.e. marble staircase).
