    Afternoon wedding soirée at the Wistariahurst

    Beautiful setting in early Spring/Summer. 19th century ambience with a famed textile history, philanthropic family estate settled in the city of Holyoke, MA. A diamond in the rough. Incredibly attentive staff, not a detail was missed. I arrived late, and Sara English, curator of the Museum, met me outside of the entrance, as most of my guests had arrived early!! She escorted me around the back of the building to an entrance close to where my wedding party was waiting so that my guests wouldn’t see me before the ceremony! Top notch, thinking of everything that I didn’t, professionalism to the ultimate degree. The staff were amazing. We want to do it all over again. From the first call, to the last hug on my wedding day, Wistariahurst will always be in our hearts. I plan to volunteer there now!!

    Flawless, Stressless Wedding Day!

    I cannot put into words how amazing Wistariahurst was in giving me the ultimate wedding day. From start to finish, Sara was amazing. When I was afraid I was being too bridezilla-ish, she assured me I was not, and made sure every wish we had was filled. The entire staff was gracious and helpful throughout the planning and execution. I had a very short time to plan my wedding, but luckily there was an opening, and we were able to have our dream wedding. Sara knew the perfect spots for photos, when the lighting would be right, met me and my family at the car to assist getting me over a few puddles, and made sure every detail was perfect, and that I was unaware of any snafu's that occurred (which were all things I had forgotten, like to bring a check for the caterer!) You are missing out if you decide to get married anywhere else. Wistariahurst is a magical place, and the entire staff and volunteers are all part of the experience.

    I've always loved this place. It wasn't difficult to set a date even though we were looking for a date less than 7 months away. I emailed, we visited, sent in a deposit, kept in touch a little about how many people and some details like music and whether or not we wanted to see each other before the wedding. The day of, I didn't need to do anything. I showed up (almost late) and staff were just waiting and ready to help. We only did the ceremony and pictures here. Absolutely painless experience and again I love this place!

    I couldn't have imagined a more romantic wedding ceremony location! I didn't have to worry about weather because the music room is inside and there are plenty of other picture opportunities in the museum. The vaulted ceilings are what made us fall in love with this space. We had a harpist who made the space even more vintage. My only recommendation is for them to update the chairs. The outside gardens were unbelievably beautiful for pictures! I highly recommend this ceremony space!!!

    This is the perfect venue for a ceremony! It offers both beautiful indoor and outdoor options, and so many dynamic spaces for pictures! Sara was well organized and helped with planning and ideas all along the way. She was open to my many ideas and helped to make the event all that we hoped for and more!

    The staff were extremely helpful and accommodated all of our needs. They were willing to make all necessary arrangements to ensure that we captured every moment. They were friendly, energetic, and professional. Not that I'm planning on ever getting married again, but if I did, I would definitely have the venue at Wistariahurst again to renew our vows!

    The museum was beautiful. Staff was incredibly helpful and responsive to our needs leading up to the event and throughout our whole event. There was always a staff member near by asking if we needed anything.
    All the things I would've forgotten were remembered for me! Overall, I thought Wistariahurst was phenomenal!!

    We booked Wistariahurst for our wedding photography session with ease. Communicating mostly via email and mail to complete the contract process. Sara English is very flexible and pleasant to work with. On the day of the wedding the staff was very friendly, accommodating and attentive all the while providing the courtesy of space and privacy during our photo shoot. Our award-winning Montreal based professional photographer (Ashley MacPhee Photography) was extremely pleased with the venue allowing for the creativity she's well known for through her imagery. The resulting photographs were unique, individual and unlike any other photography. The architecture and decor was perfect for our vintage themed wedding. Our entire bridal party loved the intimacy of the venue and continue to praise our decision for this venue choice. I highly recommend booking this venue for your wedding photography session.

    Note: The spiral staircase is typically a common location for photographs. If you're traditional in style this may please you. However we didn't use the staircase. There are many overlooked details in and around the museum that make for amazing backdrops and landscapes to set your images apart from everyone else's. Choose your photographer carefully. This museum is a gem.

    I recently got married at the Wistariahurst Museum this spring and had an amazing experience. Sara, our coordinator, was great! In the weeks before the wedding she was very attentive to my needs. She made everything run very smoothly and was very helpful at the rehearsal and day of. Of course the space is also beautiful as it is a historical home. We got many compliments on how nice it was.

    The price is slightly steep but the pictures are gorgeous and if you have a nice day, you can take them both inside and out. You have the entire venue to yourself to roam around the property for your pictures. The staff is incredibly courteous and helpful.

    The event space was perfect for the small ceremony we had. It was an elegant space and had beautiful places to take pictures. The coordinator was a pleasure to work with. She provided a professional attitude and was attentive to the small details.

    Sara and Siobhan were very responsible and made the planning process very easy, which was especially valuable since we were planning the wedding from out of state.

    We used the Wistariahurst Museum for our engagement photos. It provided many beautiful backdrops for our photographs, including numerous locations inside and outside the house. The rotating art exhibit in the showroom also gave us some more abstract and unique photos. The cost seemed a little high for an hour of photography, but we were determined to have the Wistariahurst be a part of our day! The staff was accommodating and quick to respond to my emails, and had just the availability we were looking for. It was definitely a memorable afternoon!
