The Willowdale Estate in Topsfield, MA is one of my favorite estate wedding venues. The mansion grounds host only one wedding per day, meaning the entire mansion staff are dedicated to you.
From November to April, Willowdale offers intimate indoor events for 70-125 guests. From May to October, Willowdale offers the mansion grounds for 125-240 guests. No matter the season, I’ll absolutely ask you and your newly wed wife/husband to sneak outside with me to take some night portraits on the grounds. I love when the skies flood a dark blue. It’s especially pretty with the strung lights that the Estate has year round!
Most of my couples have hosted their outdoor wedding ceremony in the butterfly garden (no actual butterflies, though) and then their cocktail hour in and around the mansion with the reception in the Sperry tent.
Their chocolate chip cookies are to DIE FOR. Please have them. Thanks. :)
