A magical fall wedding
In late October 2019, I had the most beautiful fall wedding at the magical Harding Allen Estate in Barre MA. Ever since me and my husband started looking for places to get married, we knew we wanted a beautiful classic fall wedding in a New England setting, The Harding Allen Estate was the perfect choice! The owners Carmine and Grace were always extremely helpful and open about how much everything costs and were the perfect one stop shop for everything I needed. I got ready early in one of their cottages next to the estate and got to get a sneak peak of my flowers before everything started. Grace and Gianna worked so hard to incorporate everything I wanted into the flower arrangements. They were beautiful and were even better than I imagined. When walking into the venue space everything was very carefully decorated to make it feel like a beautiful fall dream. As my wedding got started Carmine and Grace made sure everything went smoothly and I was able to relax and have fun and did not have to worry about anything! The food and drinks were also all amazing! For our fall theme wedding they made us delicious pumpkin dumplings, Bourbon street chicken on a stick, and so many other delicious appetizers that all came out warm and fresh from the kitchen. The staff was always there to make sure me, my husband, and all our bridal party and guests were comfortable and happy and got us anything we requested and always were happy to help. After cocktail hour the food came out quickly and was delicious! The guest had a choice between Chicken Lillian, rosemary apple pork, and stuffed eggplant. I even had time between visiting all of my guests to sit down and eat some of the chicken and loved it! After dinner was done everything was cleaned up and the staff brought out pumpkin and spice cupcakes for dessert and all our guests danced the rest of the night away. After the party ended we were so tired that we just wanted to go to sleep so Grace, Carmine, and the rest of their staff picked everything up and packed it all up for us to leave in the morning. I cannot thank the owners and staff at Harding Allen enough for all the hard work and dedication they put into our wedding day to make it as special and magical as we wanted! Thank you Carmine, Grace, and Gianna and the staff of Harding Allen!Sent on 05/04/2020

The Harding Allen Estate really made the entire wedding planning process easy. Throughout the entire process the Harding Allen crew gave us easy to understand worksheets and deadlines for everything from food to flowers to how we wanted the ceremony to look. The wedding day can be very overwhelming and, with many moving pieces, stressful. The Harding Allen staff will coordinate with the schedule you have laid out for them and make sure you are where you are supposed to be. It really removed a ton of stress from the wedding day and let us enjoy the moment and interact with the guests. They made sure we had food and were able to eat (a common warning from friends was that they didn't even get a chance to sit and eat at their wedding). They have this wedding thing down. They also recommend trusted vendors for things like photography and the DJ. Both of the services they recommended for these were amazing as well.Sent on 08/04/2019
On top of how easy they made coordinating and smoothly the big day went, they were also a pleasure to be around.
All around great venue!

Absolutely Amazing!! Made my wedding day perfect!
My husband and I were married at the estate in October of 2018 and I can’t say enough about the staff of the Estate! They were so accommodating and made our day a day to remember for us from our initial tour to the actual day of they made us feel like family. Carmine really took the time to help out with my grandpa who without the extra attention from the staff at the estate would not have been able to attend our ceremony and that really meant the world to me! Thank you Harding Allen Estate! And from the bottom of my heart thank you Carmine!Sent on 05/04/2020
