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.

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!

We got married at OSV on 8/9/14 and it was just beautiful. Since the wedding many guests have raved to us about the food (delicious!), the drinks (generous and tasty - though we forgot to ask for a signature cocktail they came up with a couple on their own), the site itself (so cute and beautiful and fun to wander around and explore, especially with kids!) and the staff. Our own interactions with staff were wonderful but you kindof expect good service when you're the bride and groom - we were pleasantly surprised to hear several friends remark on how cool and nice all the staff were that they interacted with. And of course Lise, our coordinator, was fantastic. I did bug her a lot with questions and comments over email in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding and she patiently addressed every one. I don't know how she keeps track of everything, personally. She also helped smooth things over the weekend of, such as when I was late to my own rehearsal (!), she just moved things along with a big smile on her face. Though she was probably stressed herself she didn't show it at all and helped keep me relaxed. She also ended up bustling my dress almost by herself (and twice as fast as my mom and sister :) - talk about going above and beyond!

I would heartily recommend OSV to anyone as a wedding venue - it was a fun destination with a lot of character that I think our guests really enjoyed. There was a horse-drawn carryall that took the guests from the entrance building to the ceremony and then back to the cocktail hour. There were also costumed interpreters guiding folks into the building and helping move things along. You would think this might be a little cheesy but it wasn't, it was just lovely and charming. Walter, the on-site musician, was wonderful and very willing to work with us on our unconventional choices for music! OSV was a good value, and competitively priced compare to other venues in the area. A+!

As soon as I walked around Old Sturbridge Village with Lise, I knew it was where I wanted to get married. Unfortunately, my husband couldn't be there that day, so I took a lot of pictures. He also agreed it should be where we get married. OSV is a beautiful setting for a wedding and Lise and Karlene were incredibly helpful with any questions I had. Both were very professional and so knowledgeable. Lise was my contact and she quickly got back to me on every question. Karlene and her staff made incredibly delicious food that all the guests raved about. Both helped make my day the most perfect wedding day I could have ever wished for. I loved everything about OSV. There are a variety of options for your wedding, so they can help make your day perfect too. I highly recommend them.

Having a wedding at OSV is beyond phenomenal in every way! Having visited Old Sturbridge Village many times, we already knew how incredibly beautiful, charming, and spacious it is and what a great group of people work there. Even so, we were bowled over by the treatment we received. The event team is the most hard-working, caring, dedicated, talented, patient group of people you can imagine and they all work their hearts out to make your wedding day perfect in every way. Lise Soper was our amazing event manager. She was absolutely terrific to work with – thoughtful, knowledgeable, helpful, flexible, efficient, organized, cheerful, patient, and supportive. Wedding planning was easy after meeting with Lise and using their online tools. I had a lot of questions and details I wanted to consider, and Lise spent plenty of time with us both in person and via email until I felt confident that everything would be how we wanted it. On the wedding day, everything was exactly how we planned it! All the other people we worked with were wonderful too – Denise and Alexis in sales, Dennis and Karlene in food services, Deb and Van at the bakeshop, Jeanne from the interpretive team, and Brian at the Old Sturbridge Inn & Reeder Family Lodges.
We made the right decision by having all our events at OSV - rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, and brunch, and by staying at the charming Inn & Reeder Family Lodges adjacent to OSV. We held events in both indoor and outdoor locations, and each location was absolutely beautiful. The food was fantastic, with so many options to pick from. We were really impressed by the quality and quantity of the food, the service, the table settings, and the room layouts.
In summary, you will be treated like royalty, eat well, sleep well, stay on schedule, save time and energy and money, feel more relaxed, have lots of chances to mingle with your guests, and have an absolutely fabulous time!
