I cannot recommend Old Sturbridge Village as a wedding venue enough. It was such a fantastic experience. Adam and I were a somewhat non-traditional couple (we have two children and wanted a low-key wedding), and were thrilled with Lise and the others. Our wedding day was relaxing and magical. I couldn't ask for a better experience, and they were very accommodating throughout!

If you are looking to have a rustic/romantic style wedding, then OSV is the venue for you. Having been to two prior weddings at OSV before booking our wedding their, we knew what to expect. However, our wedding far surpassed all of my expectations! Everyone we worked with were so professional and welcoming to our guest. Lise, our coordinator, made the entire experience and day-of-preparations stress free. She was so on top of everything that it allowed me to relax and truly enjoy my wedding day! Our guests have been raving about the musket salute, horse and carriage and the high quality of the food! I am gluten free, as were some of my guests, and OSV was so accommodating! I would absolutely recommend OSV to a friend.

Our wedding day was absolutely flawless! The staff at OSV make everything super easy, and they even handle many of the small details (like cake knives, and guest book). We used vendors recommended by Adam, our wedding coordinator at OSV and they were all great as well! The entire staff was a pleasure to work with, and it made planning this wedding remotely much easier. Our advice for booking this venue - take advantage of the horse drawn carryall to take your guests to the ceremony site (ours were overjoyed!), and take a tour of the venue before the wedding because it is a ton of fun!

This was the first and only venue I looked into when I was planning my wedding. I knew right away that I wanted to have my wedding at OSV, and it was everything I could have ever wanted. I felt like a princess that day, and everything was perfect. OSV is so naturally beautiful and my coordinator, Lise Soper, took a ton of weight off of my shoulders the day of the wedding. Also, the food is AMAZING. Planning a wedding can be so stressful, but my day at OSV was everything I could have ever hoped for, and made every stressful minute worth it!

My husband and I were married at OSV on 10/2/16. This is such a unique and special place to get married! Denise was our coordinator and she was such a pleasure to work with. She responded quickly to our questions throughout the entire process and was calm and organized. We were so impressed- from the small details at our ceremony to the tables at the reception, they understood exactly what we wanted and executed it beautifully. We wanted many DIY touches and were blown away with how accommodating they were and how they understood the importance of these details. The food was amazing, as well! Our guests certainly did not leave hungry!

Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but we couldn’t have imagined a smoother and easier experience working with OSV. From the wedding tasting to the details appointment with our coordinator, everything was taken care of in advance and with incredible care and organization. Denise was very respectful of our budget and took the time to work with us to make sure we were comfortable. There were no hidden fees or surprises on our bill- we knew exactly what to expect. What really struck us was that even though there are many weddings at OSV each year, we felt so special on our wedding day. You won’t find a more charming setting for your big day, or a staff that cares as much about making your day perfect. If we could do it all over again, we would choose OSV in a heartbeat! We can’t recommend this wonderful place enough!

We had our 8/27/2016 wedding at OSV. We were married in the old village on the common in front of the meeting house, our cocktail hour was outside and our reception at the Oliver Wight Tavern. We were very fortunate to work with Lise Soper from day one. She was amazing and incredibly responsive to every detail. She always made us feel comfortable and met all of our requests. We fell in love with the venue during our first tour and received so many compliments and comments such as "fairy tale wedding"..."picture perfect venue". We had a full Episcopal service on the common with our reverend from NYC. My father and I arrived by horse/carriage entrance and he surprised us with the musket firing. Many of our guests commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony they had ever attended. We had one simple flower arrangement (Florist: Ladyslipper) at the ceremony; it was truly the backdrop of the meeting house and old village that created the atmosphere. We are both from New Hampshire originally, however, we met and live in New York City. We were nervous about what our friends from Manhattan would think of the food. We chose the Federalist package. To be honest, we left our initial tasting feeling 'so-so'. However, we were very pleased on the night of our wedding. The passed appetizers at cocktail hour were wonderful. The staff was very attentive and brought them to us as we chose to take the horse/carriage after and take pictures together in the village. One of the best compliments we received about the food was re: the chicken from a friend who owns an acclaimed wedding venue in New Jersey. He specifically noted that he was impressed with the "double french cut" and how it was cooked to perfection. The cake was amazing (Francesco's) and is included in your package. You get so much for what you pay for! So many of our friends/family were skeptical when we chose a place they remembered as an 'old museum' however they were all blown away.

Old Sturbridge Village was an incredible venue that we would use again for any large gathering or party. Throughout the whole planning process, Adam, our OSV coordinator, responded so quickly to every email and phone call. He always answered within 24 hours no matter the content of the email. On the day of the rehearsal dinner and wedding, my husband and I were treated like royalty by all the staff. The OSV staff also treated my family so well. They made sure my mom was relaxed and my 92 year old grandfather received excellent service. It was worth every penny for such a relaxed, elegant affair.

There is no question - book this place NOW! Getting married at OSV was the best decision that we made (aside from deciding to get married in the first place). Our wedding was magical thanks to the hard work of the OSV staff, and we would get married there all over again. Our guests were delighted by everything, from the horse-drawn trolley rides to the beautiful settings to the food, while I was thrilled to get so much support for all of the wedding planning from our personal contact, Adam, who is the Mother Teresa of wedding planners! I don't know what I would have done without his patience, kindness, understanding, and assistance. He was a joy to work with from beginning to end, and his attention to detail was amazing. My favorite example: days before our wedding (when I was getting ready to freak out from all of the stress), Adam sent me an e-mail letting me know that he had gone around the garden where our ceremony was scheduled to take place, and had made sure that all of the lilac blooms were either dead or cut away. He had remembered that I had mentioned *months* ago in passing that I was very allergic to the flowers! THAT is the kind of care you receive at OSV. Moreover, the staff surprised my husband and I with a hand-made, personalized platter (made on the premises!) with our names and wedding date on it. It will become a cherished heirloom for our new family. Simply put, everyone at OSV worked so hard to make our wedding absolutely beautiful and truly *magical*, and we are so grateful and happy that we got married here. Do not hesitate - book OSV for your wedding NOW!!!!
