    What an incredible venue and team

    We celebrated our August 2021 wedding at the Willowdale and it was incredible. From the moment we stepped foot in the venue, we felt such a personal touch from the entire staff. During the pandemic they were communicative and fair. Closer to our wedding day we were assigned Emily as our coordinator. She was incredible! She took the time to understand our vision and priorities for our day, She was responsive leading up to our wedding and so helpful on our wedding day. Our guests had an incredible time and LOVED the food. We wish we could do it all over again next year!

    Dream Venue

    Willowdale Estate is honestly a dream venue. When my husband and I toured it, we immediately fell in love with how quaint, rustic, and charming it is! It's absolutely beautiful and located in a quiet area so it feels very private. Kelsey, our wedding coordinator, was AMAZING and helped us plan the wedding almost stress-free. She is so kind, hardworking, and punctual and she had amazing suggestions for vendors and decor options. She took amazing care of us the day of and made sure we were fed, hydrated, and cool. Our wedding was an absolute dream, and guests have said it was the most beautiful wedding they've seen, which is a huge thanks to Willowdale for its amazing beauty! The food and drinks were amazing- everyone was raving about them. I wish we could do it all over again, it was absolutely perfect.

    Nothing short of Amazing!

    There aren't enough complimentary and positive words to express how absolutely amazing Willowdale Estate truly is as a wedding venue. My husband and I live in NJ, however, we knew we wanted to be married in MA where the majority of our family and friends reside. Willowdale was the first and only venue we visited, we knew we wanted to be married at this magical place right away. Not only is the setting itself beautiful beyond measure (a real life secret garden!!), but the staff goes over the top to make your experience with Willowdale nothing short of perfection. Originally a 2020 wedding, we had to postpone due to COVID which was stressful and disappointing, but the Willowdale team eased our worries and helped us navigate the uncertain time at every turn. Our coordinator was Alyssa and she is incredible - leading up to our August 2021 wedding, she answered every question quickly and offered great advice to make our day the most perfect (for example, maybe don't splurge on those under the tent lights if you want the evening to be dimly lit and romantic at night - after all, it's still pretty light at 9PM in August and the lights around the brim of the tent offer enough lighting for a dancefloor). On the day of, she was there for us whenever and wherever we needed her, from doing all the set up to making sure we got a tray of hors d'oeuvres during the busy cocktail hour and checking in with us throughout the night to make sure all was well. She also connected with all of our vendors in advance to confirm and coordinate every little thing that needed to happen for our day. When I dropped off the decor a couple days before the wedding, I was a little nervous since it was feeling so real, but she eased my worries completely by her professionalism and when she told me "I got this" I 1000% believed her. She is a superstar! In addition to the beautiful grounds and amazing staff, the food is out of this world. Some stand outs from our selections were the mac and cheese bites, mini lobster rolls, both the chicken and beef entrees, and of course the famous Willowdale cookies. Also, having dedicated suites for the bridal party are a major plus - we could bypass the guest bathrooms whenever we needed to and scoot upstairs to our private area to take a break, so ideal. We truly loved every aspect of working with Willowdale and if we were to be married again, I would choose this venue all over again. Don't hesitate to book this venue, and if you are lucky enough to have Alyssa as your coordinator, you will never be disappointed. I can't thank her and all the staff at Willowdale enough for everything they did for us. We will remember our wedding day so fondly, forever.
