    Where to Begin??

    Let’s cut to the chase and say, “Just do it!” Go to Willowdale for your most special event, and if you’re REALLY lucky, you will get Jennifer T as your designated wedding planner! Not only is she EXPERT at what she does, but she does it with ease and humor and reassurance and respect for your ideas, while suggesting things, when needed, that you may not have thought about. She really cares about her bride and family, and seeks to understand their vision for the day, working tirelessly to help bring it to fruition. We planned this wedding long distance, bride/groom in TN, MOTB in Maine, and the venue in Mass. TOTALLY worth it, and made as easy as possible by Jen. She is a GEM! And your wedding coordinator is included in the price of your event! (They work with you for months ahead of time)
    Willowdale itself is beautiful, FILLED with charm and interest-both casual and elegant all at once! There are so many rooms and areas to use as part of your preparation and celebration. They have everything down to a science, but as they execute their “science” it feels like pure magic on the day of your event. Everyone you deal with, from the front office to the food service people, are kind, professional, and seem happy to be doing their job. And the FOOD! It truly is fine restaurant quality, in generous amounts. When they tell you that your passed hors d’oeuvres will be plenteous and people will be delighted, believe them! Our guests raved about the experience: that every time they turned around, they were being offered a new appetizer delight, during cocktail hour (which was “mocktail” hour, for us!). And the mansion is known for their fresh baked, still warm, chocolate chip cookies which are provided, along with coffee/tea, in your dessert set up.
    Truly, our guests raved about everything! The whole experience was simply magical, right down to the light snow that fell during our daughter’s ceremony-which we could see, because of the conservatory windows on 2 sides and up above!
    No two events are the same, nor should they be. Willowdale gets that. They feel your vibe and make it happen for you. We considered a barn wedding, which would have required bringing in EVERYTHING from the silverware, to tables and chairs, etc, etc, etc...and renting “wedding porta-potties!!” And it would have cost MORE than the fairytale, wonderful experience we ultimately enjoyed at Willowdale!! 😳😳 This is a no-brainer, folks.
    One last thing- you are encouraged to bring everything you like to make the day your own: family photos, any decor you want to add to their amazing supply, etc. At the end of the evening, you simply walk away, still high on the joy of the experience. No hassle or cleaning up or gathering your stuff. Willowdale staff does that for you, and the next day when you go back to collect your things, they are neatly, carefully packed up, on trolly carts, and staff members help you get them loaded into your car. As a mother of 3 daughters, each with beautiful wedding experiences, I can honestly say that THIS was the easiest, most professional and still reasonably priced of all!! Do yourself a favor and book Willowdale!!!

    Amazing in the current pandemic

    We have not actually had our wedding at Willowdale yet. We were supposed to get married this June and were forced to postpone due to COVID. I have heard so many horror stories about venues being unwilling to postpone, forcing couples to wait until the last possible second, or charging couples more when they were forced to postpone due to COVID. Willowdale was amazing during when we were making the decision to postpone the wedding, and made the difficult decision a little easier. They provided updates, responded quickly to my questions, and made themselves available for phone calls. I am so grateful we chose Willowdale as our venue and we cannot wait to get married there next year!
