We got married at Dell Lea Sept 22, 2017. Dinner and service was impeccable at the reception, our guests we're so impressed with the special flare with which their meal was served! Toutou and David truly care about your experience and we're available all night to assist in any way they could. They were extremely flexible, working with us on any special requests we had, and they even act as your day of coordinator too, tracking the schedule and coordinating with officiant, dj, etc to keep everything going. Finally, even our vendors loved working our event at Dell-Lea because there is only one event there each day - yours! - so it makes their setup and takedown so easy, and they're super easy to work with. We loved our day and the whole experience and highly recommend them!
Thank you Shannon and Aaron for your wonderful review and feedback. We truly enjoyed helping you plan your wedding day and had a lot of fun doing so. The photographer sent us some of your beautiful wedding photos. We share it with our guests when they come in for a tour. We loved how you personalized your wedding and made it so much fun. All the guests loved the fireworks at the end of the night! On behalf of the staff, David and myself, we wish you nothing but continued happiness and a million more memories together.
David and Toutou were wonderful to work with. They were accommodating and so helpful. They gave such support and advice and took so much pressure off of the planning. The venue was beautiful. The food was delicious, we had so many guests comment how yummy the food was. It was everything that we hoped for and then some. Thank you so much!
Thank you Shelby for taking time out of your schedule to write us a review. We know the importance of the day to you, K & T and the rest of the family so we are very happy to hear that it was everything you had hoped for. It was such a fun and beautiful day. We were able to see some sneak peaks of the photos and they are absolutely gorgeous. On behalf of David, myself and the staff at Dell-Lea we wish you and your family a great summer and 100 years of happiness.
Working with Toutou and David was so easy! They really make you feel like family through the whole process from booking the venue to the last minute changes that had to be made due to an emergency with extended family-they were so accommodating. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and I felt like my day was everything I ever imagined. I would choose them 100 times over again!!
Thank you Michelle for sharing your experience for future couples to read. It is the best compliment we can ever get that your special day was everything you had imaged. The highlight of the night was your father-daughter dance. Not a dry eye in the room including mine :). Wishing you and David a life of adventure together.
I can’t say enough good things about this venue! The owners were amazing to work with. They were so helpful. The outside ceremony was stunning, and the food was amazing! 100% recommend
Thank you Sawyer for taking the time to provide us with a 5 star review. We are truly appreciative as it helps us know if we are meeting and/or exceeding expectations. The wedding was a blast and the dancing was non-stop! Having Chaz's dad perform the ceremony was very personable and meaningful. I love the story of how you met. Your bother will be given credit for life :) May your marriage be blessed and full of laughter.
I can't say enough how awesome David and Toutou are! They were flexible, helpful, responsive, and professional. They are improving the venue all the time even though it's already beautiful. Thank you so much!
I haven't had my wedding yet, but so far Dell Lea has been great! Very professional, willing to work with you to create your dream wedding day and all for a fantastic price and a beautiful location!
Dell-Lea and its hosts, Tou Tou and David provided the setting for a magically perfect wedding for my daughter and her new husband. Planning was facilitated at every step. The food choices have sufficient variety without being overwhelming. We went with the fixed $ down for full open bar and David cut us a check that night for the overage. Great way to allow everyone to drink as much and what they wanted at a reasonable cost. They let us pick craft beers and wine selections. We had the servers walk around wine glasses along with appetizers that made for very pleasant fun "cocktail" hour. The hall is so lovely with high ceilings and candle lights that additional decoration wasn't necessary. There is plenty of room so you can allow for the ever expanding guest list. They set up tables flexibly and we even had a kids activity table although they were kept plenty busy with dancing. Everyone enjoyed the brownie ice cream sundaes with "choose your own" toppings. Plenty parking. Great grounds for pictures. Highly recommend Dell-Lea!
As the mother of the bride, I would highly recommend Dell Lea as a wedding venue. The grounds are beautiful, the restored post and beam barn spacious and thoughtfully laid out for use and flow. The food was delicious, beautifully plated and the wait staff professional and efficient. However, the standouts for me were David and Tutu, the new owners. They were amazingly knowledgeable, accommodating, attentive, kind and calm of spirit. I felt that we were held graciously all through the rehearsal, wedding ceremony and reception. David even substituted for the best man as he was unable to attend the wedding rehearsal. His attention to detail and kindness even extended to switching out the brown chairs for the white ones for the reception as he felt they better fit the decorative theme of the wedding. Tutu and David get 5 stars as new owners. Thank you for contributing in such a wonderful way to my daughter's wedding day.
Thank you Winnie. We were happy to make accommodations so Emily and Joe could have a special and memorable day together. Wishing you and your family all the best. Lots of love, Toutou and David.
A hidden gem up in the hills of Chichester. For everything this venue has to offer, the pricing is extremely affordable! The new owners, Toutou and Dave, are such a pleasure to work with. I was nervous at first because they took over the venue just a month before my wedding date and I had been working with the previous owners for the last year. Toutou and Dave did such an amazing job and made me feel so comfortable. You can tell they have a true passion for this. They were both extremely accommodating and were open to all of the ideas I had. I sent over 2 sangria recipes that I wanted to have as signature drinks at the wedding and the bartender nailed it! All of my guests raved about the drinks and the food. I was also nervous about the food because the venue does not offer menu tastings, however the food was amazing and I would advise any future couples to not worry about this at all. Now that it is all said and done, I am glad there was not a tasting because it was one less thing I had to do and worry about. We chose buffet style and there was PLENTY! Many of my guests went up for seconds, which I loved because many other venues serve such small portion sizes. Service, food, drinks, atmosphere, pricing...I have nothing bad to say. My wedding day was exactly what I wanted and more and my husband and I did not go broke doing it! I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding and detailed review. We had an exceptional time hosting your wedding. Wishing you and Mark the best on your new journey and welcome back to NH!
What a great facility to get married at. The views are breathtaking, the new owners are nothing short of spectacular. They were there at every turn to make sure our day went off without a hitch. The food was great and plentiful. I would recommend the pig roast.
Thank you Chrissey for your wonderful compliments. We strive to do our best knowing that it is an important day for you. We enjoyed hosting your beautiful wedding. Best of luck to you and Bill.

I got married here in September and the venue was absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend Dell Lea to anyone I know getting married.
Thank you for your review as we take all reviews to heart and your recommendations means a lot to us. Best of luck in your new adventure.
We have chosen Dell Lea to have our Ceremony and Reception. We are doing a non-traditional meal which was very tough to find a venue to work with us within our budget. If you give them plenty of time they can cater your meal to what you want at a very reasonable price. This was by far the only venue that really fit in our budget and Katrina is so great to work with. They aren't the best at responding via e-mail, but over the phone they are great. There are a few petty costs that get added in like chair set-up fee if you are having it outdoors, but other than that I find them to be very reasonable.
This venue came as a last minute recommendation from a former coworker, and let me tell you, I have never been so excited that this fell into our lap!!!
Dell Lea is in a small little town in the middle of NH located 15 minutes from the heart of Concord. Katrina and her husband were so welcoming and so willing to work with whatever vision I as the bride had. The venue was not only GORGEOUS, but Katrina and her husband are extremely reasonably priced for hosting events at such a beautiful venue and the flexibility they have with helping your day be as special as possible is just ABOVE and BEYOND ! They allowed us the opportunity of having a fajita bar because they were so interested for the challenge to make something new...and they came out GREAT! The amount of space we had was great! The land is gorgeous and we had both access to the outside yard as well as the inside.
The only reason this venue did not get a 5/5 was because the only complaints I received from my wedding guests was that the main bartender was very unprofessional and rude towards quite a few of them. Mind you, there was no belligerently drunk people at this wedding. Everyone was respectful. I will not put forth examples as to not disregard the owners of the venue because I have so much respect for them and all they had to offer for us on our special day. I do recommend Katrina and her husband at Dell-Lea to the highest extent for future events to anyone!
Thank you Samantha for your excellent review. We always strive to be the best and we take all reviews very seriously. As such, although you were very complimentary, the most important part of the review for us was the one issue you noted regarding our bartender. That issue has been addressed and thank you for bringing it to our attention. Warm Regards, Brandon and Katrina
We had a wedding on June and what an amazing wedding we had thanks to Katrina and Brandon. We had a blast time. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding venue. I'm from Las Vegas and it wasn't easy for me to planning. I talked with Katrina from the beginning and she answered every question, she quickly responded to every email and phone call.
Everything was perfect, beyond perfect. We could never have imagined such a fabulous day! We continue to receive compliments on the quality of everything that day. The venue was perfect, the staff was extremely friendly, service was awesome and the food was really juicy and tasty. I mean they have been in catering business over 20 years. What can I say. yum! yum! yum!
We would absolutely recommend this venue to a friend!! Thank you Dell-lea wedding events!!!
Love this vendor. Katrina is really amazing at keeping in contact, answering questions, making suggestions, and taking special orders. Beautiful land and venue, polite and professional staff.
Dell-Lea was the first and only venue that we needed to look at to know where our perfect wedding celebration would take place! Thank you to Katrina and staff for being extremely accommodating! All of our guests were in awe of the gorgeous venue!
The setting of Dell-Lea is breathtaking -- it got better every time I saw it! The renovations to the barn have only made it better! It has such a wonderful, rustic charm about it. We got so many compliments on the venue!
Also, the food options were amazing! I knew my fiancé would not be able to say no when I showed him the American Buffet menu!
Katrina was so accommodating and helpful! The staff, too, were so sweet!
I am so pleased with the results!
The first time we stepped into Dell Lea, we knew it was where we wanted to have our wedding. Katrina and her crew did not disappointment. When we showed up for rehearsal I could not have even imagined how amazing it looked. All of our guests were in awe of how beautiful the venue was, and the food was delicious! There was plenty for everybody and they even offered guests seconds! If you want an intimate and beautiful ceremony and reception Dell Lea is your place. Thank you so much Katrina!
Amazing place just beautiful views, food was great, if you don't mind doing a little work to decorate to make it your own this is the place for you.
My husband and I got married at Dell-Lea this past October and everything was absolutely PERFECT! The grounds are beautifully up-kept, the building is gorgeous especially with the new addition and renovations, all our guests loved their food, which there are many options to choose from, and the staff was welcoming, flexible, personable, and amazing at everything they do. Thank you so much Katrina and Brandon...our wedding was everything we were hoping it would be! I absolutely recommend Dell-Lea to anyone who is looking for a beautiful, country-chic styled venue which is also very very affordable!
Absolutey beautiful venue!!! Katrina and her staff did a great job from start to finish. All my guests were blown away by the perfect setting! Andrea Donahue
I immediately fell in love with the Dell Lea as soon as I toured it. The rustic feel of the old wooden beams and the breath taking view from the back yard area were my favorites. They were great to work with. Very patient and polite. The food was delicious!
Dell-Lea is an unbelievably gorgeous and overall fantastic venue! Before my wedding, I was known as the girl from 27 dresses. Therefore, I've seen and dealt with A LOT of venues - Dell-Lea blew them all out of the water. The owner Katrina could not have been more professional, caring and accommodating than she was. Plus, ALL of the staff were so friendly, and genuinely cared about making the day as special as possible for us. I could never say enough positive things about them. Dell-Lea is, in my opinion, the BEST. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING!
The staff and owners where the best.
I had my daughter and son-in-law's post wedding celebration here in June, 2014. The people were wonderful to work with, the food was great and the facility is beautiful! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!
