The perfect historic property for a wedding
The Bradley Estate is such a perfect place to get married, we can't recommend it enough. Though we were drawn to a wedding on a historic property, the Bradley initially escaped our notice, probably because it hosts relatively few private events each year. The perfectly landscaped walled garden in the back is an unbelievably beautiful location for a wedding ceremony. We were lucky with a perfect fall day, with a pristine house on one side and the first hint of fall color in the woods behind the house on the other side of our ceremony. The ceremony flowed very smoothly to cocktail hour on the patio and at the porch bar, and then out to dinner under the tent. While I was full of nerves that we would be hit with bad weather, the house and tent would have offered plenty of refuge, and having seen the staff in action now, I'm 100% confident that they would have pulled off the logistic hurdles seemlessly. The food was delicious and the service was personal and attentive all night. My parents were so impressed that servers learned their names, checked in regularly, assisted elderly family members, and truly seemed invested in helping us have a perfect day. And we literally cannot say enough about the wonderful Tim Holmes, event manager extraordinaire. He was so responsive to our questions, offered fantastic suggestions, and really "got" the kind of wedding we were aiming for. We are profoundly grateful for his help, and we recommend the Bradley without reservation.Sent on 12/02/2019

Highly recommend Bradley Estate- Tim is awesome. Venue is beautiful
My wife & I got married at Bradley Estate in June '19. It was perfect! They take really good care of the grounds (flowers blooming, fountain flowing, etc). Tim, from Fireside Catering, was awesome. The food was amazing. Can't speak highly enough of the Bradley Estate. We got really lucky that we found it!Sent on 11/27/2019

We picked the Bradley Estate because of the beautiful garden and exclusive caterer, Fireside Catering. We loved the idea of the Estate being public, so we can visit again for anniversaries and special occasions. The garden is quiet and perfect for an outdoor ceremony,. The property is well manicured and the Trustees update the flowers often during the seasons. All of our guests we spoke to post-wedding commented on how beautiful the garden is.Sent on 09/04/2018
Tim Holmes of Fireside Catering was knowledgeable and prompt. There were a few requests that we asked a week before the wedding and Tim was able to accommodate our requests. Food was top-notch and sourced from a local farm. The appetizers were amazing and well replenished throughout the cocktail hour. Our guests raved about the food, particularly the appetizers. Service was great throughout the wedding. We had our own waiter that attended to us only, getting us drinks and our own appetizer tray. As we were talking to guests, our food got cold and our waiter quickly got us new hot entrees. Liz, our day of coordinator, was great, managed timing well, and made us feel at ease all day. One caveat is that the Estate does not allow a rehearsal the day before. This was not an issue for us since we had a very small wedding party and Liz was able to instruct us right before the ceremony.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Bradley Estate and Fireside Catering. If you want a hassle-free and generally a one-stop shop with great service, food and beautiful venue, Bradley Estate is the best choice.
