My husband and I couldn't have been happier with Tower Hill. Our guests all raved about the venue - saying it was the most beautiful venue they'd ever seen - and it worked perfectly for our 100-person wedding. Our wedding was in late August and it was a perfect temperature and the sunset during the cocktail hour was simply stunning. I can't say enough good things about it! While they are strict about the catering options (you need to chose a caterer from a set list) it ended up working out perfectly. Highly recommend checking it out!

We're in awe of the gorgeous venue we were lucky enough to get married in and so grateful for all of the staff's hard work in giving us the day we had. The staff was amazing to work with and so good to us (all along) and especially leading up to the big day. The venue is perfect for holding both your ceremony and reception as they have multiple outdoor and indoor options for both. The staff there has worked with our caterer and florist for years and it showed. They all worked together beautifully. The day could not have gone better. Our guests were blown away by the beauty of Tower Hill and all want to visit again. We can't wait to go back ourselves. Thank you Tower HIll!

We immediately fell in love with Tower Hill and knew we had to have our wedding there. All of the staff and Jenni of course were great and so easy to work with. The venue does have many rules and policies to follow, but the staff helped us to meet all of our wants and needs within their parameters. It was even pouring on our wedding day and they provided an exceptionally beautiful rain plan and the day was even nmore perfect than if it were sunny :)

My husband and I knew we wanted to get married at Tower Hill the first time we went. The wedding planner was very helpful in getting our small ceremony organized. They worked with the chair delivery service and helped direct our guests and string quartet upon arrival. They even let my husband and wedding party in early with our photographer to get some pictures done before the ceremony. We did not have our reception here, but I cannot imagine a more beautiful scene for a wedding.

Tower Hill was great. Jennie and Stephanie were very helpful in coordinating our wedding, which was good because we were out of state. They were flexible in scheduling meetings and good about responding to emails, which was a must for me as we had to do things like tour Tower Hill the day before Thanksgiving and schedule a walk through on one of the few weekends we were available. Tower Hill is somewhat restrictive in what you're permitted to do, but many of our vendors had worked weddings there previously and were familiar with their restrictions. They do have a list of permitted caterers and rental companies that you have to work with, but there are enough choices that we easily picked a caterer we loved. The plus side of this was that our caterer was very familiar with Tower Hill.

Jennie, Stephanie and the entire Tower Hill team were great to work with! The venue itself is breathtaking! Our guests were blown away when they stepped onto the grounds! There isn't a bad place to take a photo- which is a great problem to have! We had our ceremony in the Secret Garden and our reception in the Orangerie. Since Tower Hill is associated with the Worcester Historical Society, there are some restrictions on what you can and cannot do. We didn't find it too limiting though. At Tower Hill you have the benefit of a beautiful unique space that really doesn't require too many extra bells and whistles to be added on.

For us, it was the perfect location. The gardens are beautiful and the Orangerie lit up at night for the reception was gorgeous! Tower Hill will always hold a special place in our hearts!

We held our wedding ceremony only in the Secret Garden at Tower Hill Botanic Garden on 08/02/2013. Because it was a ceremony only and I did not want the reception there I had to wait a little longer to book my date because they try to hold them for couples who want both events there. It took alot of emails and persistence on my part to get it booked. I spoke with two other reps before getting in contact with the new rep, Jenny, who made booking much simpler than the other girls. She was very pleasant when I met her to make the deposit. Although the rules in the contract are very strict about times Jenny was flexible with us and allowed us to come a 1/2 our early to do a few photos before the ceremony. The day of coordinator was someone different, she was soft spoken & pleasant. I would have liked her to take more control during the rehearsal but it all came together on the day of the ceremony. During the rehearsal a gaggle of geese had flown in and literally crapped all over the garden area we were going to use. But by the ceremony they had the grounds cleaned and I was so relieved. The garden itself is well maintained and breathtaking. My husband and I love going there anytime of the year they always have a beautiful display. This was the first time we had gone during the summer and I was sooo sooo impressed with everything. Above us during the ceremony was a beautiful tree in a container and the pics we have make it look like we were married under the "tree of life". It was so lush and vibrant. I couldn't have asked for a better spot. The secret garden had power outlets hidden within the landscape for our guitarist and the JP. The stairs in the secret garden allowed for a grand entrance. We had an non-traditional processional and my husband and I both walked down the staircases at the same time and met in the middle where he walked me up the aisle. It was just a perfect "coming together" moment. I will always cherish this place.

I loved Tower Hill from the moment I arrived for a friend's wedding. When it came to planning my own wedding, I was very pleased. The price was fantastic and the grounds beautiful. It was tricky picking a date because it books so quickly! Everyone I worked with was very professional but I worked with a few different people so I Felt like I had to review my details a few times. They have a preferred list of vendors but you can only use their vendors. Their rules were a little strict to protect their grounds, flowers, and plants which was easy to contend with and work thru. I was so happy with the venue, the Orangerie is a beautiful place for a small-mid size wedding (only holds 150 guests). It's an original venue with beautiful views and amazing places for pictures! Overall value can't be beat!

Hands down the most beautiful place in central MA to get married. As soon as we saw the gardens, we knew it was the place. The Orangerie room is so gorgeous and such a unique space - all our guests were in awe. We had the most perfect day, too. We were a little worried about the potential for bugs and the space being too hot since it was out in the open, but neither of those things ended up being an issue. The only thing was that the bathrooms needed a little sprucing up with hospitality baskets, etc. From the start, Stephanie and Jenny were on top of things and the day couldn't have gone more smoothly, and they did a great job making sure we got everything we needed at the end of the night. They also are very comfortable working with Pepper's Catering, which helped the process a lot. So so happy we got to have our wedding here!
