We had an amazing time at OSV for our wedding. We worked with Alexis as our coordinator and she was fabulous. Alexis was quick to answer emails and made our day flow smoothly. Carlene was the banquet manager and she also helped make our night great. The venue was beautiful, that's why we chose it, but really, the staff is what made our night such a success.

I am usually pretty reluctant to use the "perfect" but that is how my wedding was, thanks in no small part to Old Sturbridge Village.
The price was comparable to a lot of other venues in the area and OSV includes MUCH more in the package than other places.

Their package included the ceremony musician, the big candle chandelier all lit up in the 1800s meeting house, the reception venue, the cake (from an excellent italian bakery nearby - you do the tasting and the ordering and OSV does the paying!), the linens, the centerpieces (handcrafted tin lanterns with candles), candle-lit pathways and costumed staff to show guests around, the cake cutting tools, and more! Oh, and the food is SO good!

The whole staff was friendly, helpful, and just generally wonderful.
Alexis was our coordinator and she was extremely organized. The entire time I felt like everything was being handled.

Aside from the major things it is sometimes the little things that stay with you; like Alexis bringing us a couple of to-go containers full of our appetizers since we were missing the cocktail hour while taking pictures, and the beautiful cards we got: one printed one from Alexis and the staff in general, and another hand-signed by each and every member of the crew who worked during the reception.
The number of compliments from guests was astounding. They loved the food and they LOVED being taken to the ceremony site by horse-drawn trolley. So unique!

They also provide an excellent preferred vendor list. I used a DJ and florist from that list and Alexis knew them personally and deliveries were all completely smooth.

I really cannot say enough good things about OSV and the entire experience. You absolutely cannot go wrong having your wedding there. I never dreamed I would be so relaxed in the days and hours leading up to the wedding, but Alexis and OSV were so on-the-ball that I was NEVER worried.

If I could give OSV a higher rating I would. From the start my wedding proved to be a difficult one, since I was living in another country at the moment, planning everything from afar. Alexis was my wedding coordinator and she made everything possible to be able to show me the venue on the only day I could go before I had to go back to my country. After that everyone at OSV made sure that we were happy and comfortable with our experience.

My ceremony location was suppose to be outside, with a plan B indoors in case of rain, that I had to pick from the moment we signed the contract. Near the wedding date we realized it was definitely going to rain and Alexis was very nice allowing me to pick any other place in the whole village to have the indoor ceremony, even though I had picked one at the beginning, but I wasn't sure I liked. I ended up with my first choice but knowing that one day prior to the wedding they would still do any changes to make me happy meant a lot.They took care of everything the way I wanted it and made sure the day of the wedding was as stress free as possible and I really appreciated it.

Now for the venue facts: They have AMAZING food, so good we had problems to pick our entree choices and everyone is still telling us how good it was. They include your cake and we got it with Francesco and it was so delicious my family wanted to eat the top layer when they realized they packed it for us to take. Everyone is very nice and professional, answering in no time any kind of inquiry you have, and they go out of their way to make your day that more special. And of course the location is beautiful.

When getting married you want and need it to be as stress free as possible. When we chose Old Sturbridge we were just expecting a place that would only feed us, serve drinks and setup. We were not expecting a group of people to make us laugh, wipe our tears, and to make our day so magical and stress free. The heavy rain did not put a damper on our day thanks to Alexis and her team. I have never met a group of people so willing to make you happy. If I could change one thing about them, it would be absolutely nothing. You guys are great at what you do. My husband, my family and myself thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you have done for us.

OSV was the absolute perfect place to have my wedding. A big reason we chose to go with them initially was because their package came with so much. Since I was planning the wedding from out of state, I didn't have to put tiny details together. They had already done that. They made everything very easy. The only thing that wasn't exactly what I was expecting was the music during the ceremony. We used their musician. He was very nice and easy to reach, he just didn't really play the songs I had requested. But nothing sounded bad and no one could tell except me and my husband. The day of the wedding everyone was extremely accommodating. Lise bent over backwards trying to make it everything I wanted. It was a rainy day with showers on and off. She let me decide up to the very last minute if I wanted the wedding outside. We ended up having it inside, and it couldn't have been more perfect. With it being inside we got to take a picture with all of our guests afterward outside the Meetinghouse. I thought that was so special, and it couldn't have been done so seamlessly if we had done it in the outside location.
From the beauty of the venue, to the food, and the incredible help we had throughout the entire process, I would highly recommend OSV!
