Until Karen and I found Santarella, no venue felt right.  We were looking for an affordable venue in a beautiful natural setting, with accommodations on site for a small group of friends and family, which was close to hotel and a reasonable commute from both New York and Boston.  With Santarella we got all of [...]

Our wedding at Santarella was amazing- everything we dreamed it could be. Santarella’s got magic. The buildings are whimsical, and the grounds are beautiful and intimate- full of easily overlooked but delightful nooks.  Guests did not attend, they discovered.

The enchantment of Santarella is only upstaged by the exceptional hospitality of it’s hosts. Their careful preservation and affection for the estate is clearly evident. Denise is an amazing resource for all things ‘event’ related. My medieval birthday was magical beyond my expectations.

When we thought about what our wedding might be like, we wanted a place that was special to us – somewhere intimate and personal. After meeting Denise and having toured the incredible buildings and grounds, we couldn’t wait to book our wedding date. Like most people we had no experience putting together a wedding, and [...]
