Finding a venue to support a guest list of up to 200 people without going broke and staying in Boston is no small feat. Many of the venues my fiancé and i look at were either too small or far too expensive or too far out of the city.  When we found Alden Castle it felt too good to be true. The vintage feel with beautiful wood was both dramatic and in some ways a blank slate for any color palette. There was space to do both the ceremony and reception, and we could additionally add a second room (the club house) to do our cocktail hour. And, best of all — it was in our budget. Great choice. The staff was supportive, friendly and it was easy to work with them. The online payments are a breeze. Michelle helped us with everything booking related and was prompt and thorough in her emails. Amanda, who was our day of coordinator was flexible with me when we wanted to have a mac and cheese bar upstairs (never been done before), when we wanted the band at the back of the room by the mirrors (also rarely if ever done before), when I changed the large table and high-low ratio a thousand times, when I panicked that our guest list was too long, when I wanted the tables moved back from the dance floor a little more… Everyone there was supportive and easy to work with! for the day of they kept things moving seamlessly. We always had food and drink and the attendant was so accommodating of our wishes!! Everyone RAVED about the food. And the mac and cheese bar was a total success. They coordinated everything with the vendors and on the day of the wedding I felt totally relaxed. The whole space glowed with our specialty ordered linens (arranged by Alden) and the candle lit atmosphere (you can use real candles!) was just gorgeous! Would totally get married here again (not that I ever plan to get married again!)
