Both Maddie and Christa were a dream to work with. They answered every question that I had in a timely manner and helped to out me at ease in regards to my wedding day. The day of my wedding Christa went above and beyond in so many ways. She made sure that we kept to our schedule for the entire event and made sure that we had food in our bellies and access to warmth after photos in the chilly weather. Maddie did a fantastic job setting up the decorations for my wedding and made my vision of the perfect setup come true. Both girls were a dream to work with and the venue, food and pricing were outstanding as well!
My husband and I got married at the beginning of October. Christa and Maddie were phenomenal. They thought of every detail and worked through any questions we had an helped coordinate vendors in the area. They were extremely accommodating to all requests we had. Christa and Maddie thought of absolutely everything on the day of from taking our drink order ahead of time to setting aside appetizers, they thought of it all! Our guests raved about the food. Chef James put on an amazing barbeque spread. We could not have asked for a more beautiful back drop to our wedding.
From the first time walking into Flag Hill to book our wedding it was the most pleasurable experience. The staff always attentive when asking questions. Christa and Maddie have such a gift in making you feel like your wedding is the only wedding and the most important thing on their agenda. I couldn't have been happier. I had a vision and they created a beautiful setting for romance. I am forever grateful for all their time and effort put forth onto my special day. Thank you both very much. Cheers!!!!!!
Oh, Christa! You and your team, along with Maddie, took all my worries away and I never once felt rushed or like I was a pain in your side. I knew anything that went into your hands would be handled. The food was DELICIOUS and hot! My guests wanted for nothing. I only wish it didn't have to end so we could stay forever! Perfect venue, and world class service.
Our wedding at Flag Hill was absolutely perfect! Maddie and Christa put in the time and effort to make sure we didn't have any worries or concerns leading up to the wedding. They took care of everything for us and made our day special and unique. We only wish we could get married again and cannot wait to attend future weddings and events at Flag Hill!
We decided Flag Hill for not only it’s beautiful site but also because of how wonderful Christa and all of Flag Hill staff was. Christa was always there when we needed her, whether it was through email or just to show up randomly. She always made sure our needs were met, and was always there to help an anxious bride calm down! Our wedding day was more than I could have imagined. All of Flag Hill made sure we were taken care of; from having drinks ready for us after the ceremony to having a plate of food in front of us before the buffet started for guests. The biggest help of all was the crew setting up and taking down all of the decorations. This allows for a less stressful day, and when the night is over there is no need to stay to pick up. The only thing that was left to do was to enjoy the remainder of the night as a married couple! I must say Christa is hands down the best event manager I’ve come to know. You can really tell she loves what she does, it clearly shows. All because of her and the rest of the staff’s help we have now been happily married for over 2 months. We couldn’t be happier!
I must start by saying we could not have planned a more perfect Wedding, for the most perfect couple, on the most perfect day at the most perfect venue. Flag Hill and their staff, especially Christa Phanuef and Maddie walked us through the process, was always so accommodating and quick to answer our many many questions. They were present for the original tour, engagement photos, food tasting events, rehearsal and for the wedding. They were terrific to work with and highly recommend their services. The property is gorgeous, especially in September! Plenty of room to accommodate a large crowd. The food was delicious and service was perfect. I also received raves about the wonderful bartenders. Please check out this small country winery, it fit our needs and didnt break the budget. You'll be glad you did.. Good Luck

Flag Hill is the most perfect wedding venue! Not only is absolutely stunning, but their wine and distilled spirits are on point. I think half of our wedding guests went home with a bottle of something that they bought from the store because they loved it so much.
We did most of our planning from the west coast, so having good, easy communication with the coordinators, Christa and Maddie, was crucial. Christa and Maddie were always professional and wonderfully enthusiastic! I left every interaction with them more excited for the big day, which I didn't think was possible. Christa guided me through selecting vendors and deciding on ceremony and reception details, never pressuring me to go any certain way. On the day of, Maddie and Christa took control, allowing me and my husband to enjoy ourselves and be completely carefree. They set up decorations, directed vendors, and ensured the ceremony went smoothly. Immediately after the ceremony, they made sure my husband and I had some of the cocktail hour hors devours before we were whisked away by our photographer…and at the start of dinner, made sure a plate was made for us so we could eat as much as possible before visiting tables. Even better, my husband tells everyone that one of his favorite parts about our reception was that he always had a drink in his hand, which he attributes to Christa’s stealth. Needless to say, Maddie and Christa were an invaluable part of the Flag Hill package and we absolutely loved working with them!
Beyond Christa and Maddie, the chef at Flag Hill is also wonderful. We chose the Backyard Barbecue option, with pulled pork, bbq chicken, mac & cheese, and cole slaw. In particular, our guests RAVED about the mac & cheese and pulled pork, but it was all delicious, and no one went home hungry!
Thank you Christa, Maddie, and the Flag Hill staff for making our wedding day absolutely perfect (and the planning process as painless as possible)!
My wedding was seriously the best party I have ever been to! A lot of this is due to the amazing staff at Flag Hill Winery. I wasn't a bride who had this perfect vision of what I wanted my wedding to be like or a bride who gave a ton of direction, which to some vendors this may have been difficult - it left the staff with a lot of room for creativity. But both Christa and Maddie embraced it and took charge and answered any random questions I had. We looked at 2-3 venues, but knew immediately after visiting the venue during a bridal showcase this was just the place to have our amazing PARTY. And that is exactly what we did. Our wedding was not overly traditional, no cake, no bouquet toss or garter. Our focus was good food, good drinks and amazing music. Flag Hill was perfect in every way. People left my wedding very well fed and are still talking about the milk and cookie bar and vodka sauce from the pasta station. And to top it off, the spirits and wine are just simply amazing. What more could you need? Well the added bonus is the amazingly beautiful grounds. My pictures came out amazing. August couldn't have been more perfect. 75 degrees, not a cloud in the sky and a brilliantly green vineyard. I could say 1000 other things I loved about this venue, but I will end with this. If you are considering Flag Hill, book it. I promise you will not be disappointed in any way.
Our experience at Flag Hill was nothing short of amazing. From the first call/email back from Christa we felt the warm, friendly environment they have at Flag Hill. Throughout the whole planning process Christa and Maddie were only an email away. They were helpful in pointing us in the right direction for decor and vendors. They have a way of making a hectic process like submitting table numbers, guest tallies, and meal plans seem so easy and seamless. The day of the wedding could not have gone any better. Maddie was right by my side and was always there when you needed her during the wedding. They think of everything so you don’t have to. The food was deliciou! Our guest keep talking about how stunning the grounds were and what an amazing time they had! They loved that they could walk around and explore. We would recommend Flag Hill to any and all newly engaged couples looking for a rustic yet elegant venue. We can’t thank Flag Hill and their staff enough!!!
Thank you for sharing your experience working with us Amanda! we were just checking out your photos from The Rustic Studio and... wow... just breathtaking! Lots of love to you, Bill, and your sweet mom (HI Pam!).
If anyone asked where they should get married, I would never say anything but Flag Hill! My mother and I lived in North Carolina and had to plan a wedding in New Hampshire. We had one weekend to pick out a venue, and we looked at two and hated them. A friend had mentioned Flag Hill and immediately we called and they said come on in. Come to find out, they weren't even open that day, they actually were cleaning but still let us come take a tour and do some wine tasting. The owner, Bryan, had showed us around and I fell in love at first sight. They were so welcoming and I couldn't have been happier. Then to have met Christina on top of that, was amazing. She is the most outgoing and beautiful person inside and out! She was quick to respond, always checking in (from 800 miles away) and so willing to do anything we needed. And the actual wedding day, I felt like nothing could go wrong with her. She had a back up plan for every mishap that went wrong, and made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Her and Maddie could not have been any better, and my perfect day couldn't have been what it was without them! We are forever thankful that we found this venue and the great people that are so good at what they do!
Christa, Maddie and the entire Flag Hill family truly made our day special. Christa and Maddie worked together to make sure that our ceremony and reception flowed smoothly and that all of our other vendors were taken care of during the day. The food was phenomenal and everyone raved about the wines/spirits. I believe the chef even took some of our guests' children down to feed the pigs. We cannot thank the entire team enough for making our day the most amazing one yet. This venue and team are gems.
Thanks for the love Leslie! So many congrats and well wishes to you and Josh!
Please don't be a stranger, it was a pleasure helping with the details of your big day and we are so so so glad you enjoyed yourself!
The Flag Hill Team
Flag Hill was the perfect choice for our wedding. The venue was absolutely stunning! Our guests kept telling us it was one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever been to. Christa, Maddie and their entire staff were amazing to work with. They made us feel completely at ease and took care of everything. The set up, the timeline and the break down at the end of the night were all done without us having to worry about a thing. The bartenders were on point, the food was delicious and the scenery was breath taking. It couldn't have been more perfect! From our very first meeting with Flag Hill, we knew there was something special about this place. Christa was a big part of that. During the whole planning process, Christa was a huge help to us. She had wonderful insight, suggestions and was a great resource to have and bounce ideas off of. She was genuinely excited and happy for us too. Her professionalism and positive attitude were one of the major reasons why we chose Flag Hill. We couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Thank you again to the amazing staff at Flag Hill. You guys rock! : )
Christa and her staff were a dream to work with! My husband and I were extremely lucky to have such a beautiful, smooth, and stress free day. The venue is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the staff are all so friendly and professional. Cannot say enough about the whole experience!
My wedding at Flag Hill this June was truly amazing! The venue is gorgeous and the natural beauty of the area helps to make it that much more stunning. When Colin & I went to see the venue after we got engaged, we knew that we were going to get married there after meeting the Wedding Planner, Christa. She is honestly one of the nicest people that I have ever met and I knew that I wanted to work with her immediately! She was so great and made our wedding go flawlessly. If I could give Christa & Flag Hill 100 stars, I would! I will always recommend them to anyone that I know who is looking for a beautiful NH wedding venue. Thank you, Christa! xo
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Flag Hill Winery and Distillery and its' wonderful staff. They went beyond and above to make our special day uniquely ours and amazing. Guests raved about the natural beauty of the venue and how great the food was! Christa and Maddie took care of every detail and brought our vision to life. They set up our decorations with ease and the tent was breathtaking. At the end of the night, Flag Hill was able to pack up some food for us to take with us - thank goodness because we were starving and dove in as soon as we got to our hotel! For anyone looking to get married, large or small, Flag Hill will work closely with you and form strong relationships to ensure your day is exactly how you envision and they will work behind the scenes to make sure it goes off without a hitch. I highly recommend Flag Hill to anyone who is looking for a beautiful wedding with amazing food!
Out wedding at Flag Hill was more that we hoped for. Christa and her team took our pointers and transformed the dining room into the elegant space we envisioned. All the vendors recommended by Flag Hill were top notch and each went out of their way to make our wedding day very special. I cannot say much more about the flexibility of Christa and her team - this allowed us to have a beautiful wedding that matched our budget. I would recommend Flag Hill over and over again for a rustic but elegant wedding experience.
We knew right after our first meeting with Christa we would have our wedding at Flag Hill. We were married in the function room, as our wedding was in March. I can't say enough about Flag Hill.
First & foremost, Christa is fantastic! She makes you feel as though your wedding is "the only wedding" We felt very welcomed at Flag Hill. Christa is passionate about what she does, and will take care of every little detail. Every email is answered so quickly, all questions answered... & so many little things you don't even think of ! ! !
As the wedding approached, we both felt so confident that everything would be taken care of.
The day of the wedding was absolutely perfect. The room was beautifully set up, the lighting, the tables, everything was taken care of. The bridal suite is amazing. Christa, Maddie, & the whole team made sure every detail was attended to. They have had a lot of practice & it really shows!
The guests have raved about the food, the service (& of course the wine!) So many have said it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
We couldn't have been happier with Flag Hill Winery. We are so glad we chose Flag Hill for our wedding.
Susan & Greg Rocci
Thank you for the love Susan and Greg! It was an amazing honor to help celebrate your families coming together! Congrats and so much love to you both (and your whole family)! Don't be strangers; Come visit us!
Best wishes, Christa, Maddie &a The whole Flag Hill team
Christa, Maddie & the entire Flag Hill team are unbelievable.
They were so wonderful and accommodating. I looked forward to each and every meeting because I honestly felt like home there. Christa was so quick to answer any and all questions we had quickly and thoroughly. The food was delicious and they did everything they possibly good to make our day perfect. We couldn't have imagined it going any better.
They hold a few bridal showcases a year (I went to both :p) to try the food and see the area. We had the pleasure of chit chatting with the chef at both and he was so passionate and informative. I have food allergies and he was more than happy to accommodate.
I honestly cannot say enough about Flag Hill. You will not be disappointed if you decide to book your wedding with them. They go out of their way for their brides/grooms and make every step easy and fun. It is affordable and they are willing to work with you every step of the way.
One of my favorite things is we can go back and visit whenever we want!
Hi Liz! We love to see 5 star ratings! Thank you so much for sharing your experience working with Flag Hill. Lots of love to you and YOUR HUSBAND!
Working with Flag Hill Winery and Distillery was a wonderful experience. My husband and I knew we wanted a rustic, outdoor wedding and were having trouble finding a place in the Northern Mass/ Southern NH area that was affordable. Thankfully we came across Flag Hill. It was the only place we visited and we instantly fell in love with the venue. It is a beautifully landscaped winery where you can clearly understand their love for cultivating nature resources to make great food, wine and liquor. The vegetable and herb garden they have onsite is used in the kitchen along with other farm grown resources from around the Lee area. The owner, wedding coordinators and staff really make the experience everything it can be. Working with Christa and Maddie (Wedding Coordinators) was an easy experience. Their staff was very accommodating and understands this is a special day even though they do it all season long. The owner and the men that work with him in the vineyard and distillery take pride in the work they do daily to make delicious wine and liquor. If you choose to have your wedding here, you are able to walk through the vineyard instead of just looking from afar. This is definitely a place to check out when looking at wedding venues.
Hi Mrs.Higgins! THANK YOU so much for sharing your experiences on WeddingWire with working with Flag Hill for your wedding day! It was, truly, an honor and I shed many happy tears (especially during that father daughter dance!). Lots of love! Don't be a stranger :)
Absolutely loved working with the entire team!!
I would recommend Flag Hill to any and every couple looking for a beautiful venue with an incredible, well organized, and attentive staff. We could not have been happier with how our day turned out and heard equally high praise for Flag Hill from our guests. The staff did such a wonderful job of attending to all of our personal details and providing us with the resources we needed to make our wedding exactly what we envisioned. I am extremely grateful to them for the role they played in making our wedding day so much fun, stress-free, and memorable to all who attended!
Thanks for the love Megan! It was a pleasure to assist you during the planning and amazing helping with your day-of execution! You and your hubby (and your amazing mom and family) are such special people- stay in touch! Lots of love to you and Devin!
We just got married here this past Friday. Everything - EVERYTHING - was absolutely fantastic. Christa, Maddie and James could not have been more helpful throughout the entire planning process and the big day went off without a hitch! Our guests have been raving about the food, wine and scenery - most saying this was the most beautiful wedding they've ever attended. Christa and Maddie have wedding day timelines down to a science. Everything was flawless and our tents looked absolutely magical. I honestly wish I could get married here yearly because I can't quite come to terms with the best day of our lives coming and going so quickly. This is absolutely the PERFECT New England venue!!!
We love you Mr & Mrs Grady! It was a pleasure getting to know both you and your families during the planning and during your big day. We truly feel like you are part of the Flag Hill family. We are thrilled you live so close and hope to see you lots in the future :) Cheers!

My husband and me were looking for the perfect spot to have our September wedding when we stumbled upon Flag Hill. Right when we walked in Christa was standing there and we just kinda told her what we were looking for and from that moment on she was by our side until the very end. Every little detail she knew how to handle even things we didn't think of! Everything and I mean everything was beyond what we expected and was perfect!! Just go in and talk to Christa or Maddie and I promise you won't regret it!! Love the whole team and wish I could work with them all over again!
