I first need to preface this review with the fact that I have been trying to write it for almost a month now. It was not until today when we received the raw footage from our wedding video that I can put down in to words the gratitude I owe to Northampton Valley Country Club. I can only sum up my experience with them and the day itself as perfection. When we first got engaged, we spent weeks looking at reviews and venues online and when Northampton popped up in our search, we knew it was worth taking a look in person. My husband is an avid golfer and his desire to be married on a golf course seemed to fit right in with NVCC. When we went to see the venue for the first time (mind you, dead of winter following an ice storm) we fell in love with the potential we knew it would have come our June wedding. We met Brigid and instantly felt a connection; we knew she was the one to orchestrate our fairytale wedding. From the very first day, Brigid has been nothing short of amazing. She dealt with my Type A personality with ease and comforted every concern I (along with my parents) had. NVCC employees really go above and beyond to make your dreams come true. I like to think of Brigid as my fairy godmother, she took my vision and executed it with perfection. Throughout the process, she was always there emailing me right back and offering suggestions and advice which was very helpful and much appreciated. The recommended vendors she and Northampton suggested were also flawless. When the big day finally came and I arrived with my bridesmaids, Brigid was there with a smile and a bottle of champagne, which definitely helped ease the nerves! My family and I had a running quote of hers that we would say throughout the engagement, one of the first times my parents met her she told them that NVCC orders the rain for the weekdays and sunshine for the weekends and as the day came, her words rang true. We chose to get married overlooking the fountain, which was an excellent decision. The ceremony went perfectly. Cocktail hour was wonderful, there were always full buffets of food (as well as many passed treats) and the cocktails were flowing. The ceremony also went off without a hitch. The staff at NVCC did everything in their power to make our dream day perfect, I cannot say thank you enough. We have had many guests tell us how wonderful the venue, food, and staff at NVCC was. A big thing I noticed was their attention to detail, not only did they make sure my husband and I were happy, they also made sure all our guests were happy which I greatly appreciated. Many people have asked me if I am sad it is over but my response to them is that Northampton delivered my fairytale wedding on the first try, so why would I be sad? Words aren’t enough but THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to the wonderful staff at Northampton for making our start into married life perfection, they truly delivered the Fiorentino Fairytale. Heather and Matt Fiorentino
A+ job NVCC—all brides and grooms would be silly to pass up on this awesome venue! My husband and I were married here on 4/30/2016, but our planning process started all the way back in June of 2014. From the first email interaction with the wedding staff we were treated with respect, enthusiasm and excitement at the chance of having our wedding there. NVCC was the first venue we looked at and let me say—they set the bar extremely high. We met with Matt who was eager to tell us everything NVCC had to offer and seemed genuinely excited to work with us. He was professional and very much prepared for our meeting. I usually have lots of questions when deciding something this important, but after everything Matt went over I felt well-informed and had very few extra questions. We did go look at a few more venues that same weekend but after those visits it was an easy decision and we booked our wedding with them in their Crystal Ballroom. Matt stayed as our wedding coordinator throughout the almost 2-year planning process and always got back to my emails in a timely manner. In our meetings leading up to the big day, Matt made sure he knew exactly what we wanted so there were no surprises on the day of the wedding and made us feel comfortable that everything was going to be taken care of. The day before the wedding my husband and I dropped off our decorations and instructions with Alexis (another wedding coordinator). She was fantastic as well! She not only helped us unload from my car but also went through everything with us to make sure they knew what I was talking about on my list. I can honestly say that when I left everything there I was not worried in the slightest—I knew they would do a great job and that piece of mind is priceless to a bride the day before the wedding. The day of the wedding we were greeted off the party bus by Matt who seemed very excited for us. Then when it was time for my photographers and videographers (neither had been to this venue before) to take my husband and myself on the grounds for pictures, Alexis pulled a stealthy ninja move and hoped on a golf cart to come with us without any of us knowing! She helped so much by telling my photographers some nice spots on the grounds to take pictures. Alexis even reminded me to look at my cake before the reception started-- I would not have gotten to see it until the cake cutting otherwise! They laid out all of the details I wanted perfectly—it was my vision brought to life. The entire staff was friendly and helpful—my husbands and my entrées (and my mom’s!) were even covered up so they wouldn’t get cold while we were visiting guests. I need to shout out the bartenders—Walt was hooking me up all night and always asked how the drinks were and if I liked how he made it and Natalie even gave her own personal energy drink to a groomsmen that was a little sleepy and wanted Redbull/vodka! Last but not least JJ was our maître d and she was phenomenal. She made sure everything was running smoothly and was to our liking and got all of our decorations packaged up so we did not have to worry about anything after the reception. Our wedding was perfect and it was largely because of NVCC-- we would not have changed a thing. Even now—a month after the wedding, guests still tell me how amazing the food and service was. Thank you NVCC for a night we and our guests will never forget.
This venue deserves more than 5 stars for exceptional service! We had our wedding at the end of April in the Northampton Room. Let me start by saying that NVCC far exceeded our expectations for our wedding! We knew that we wanted a more unique looking venue and loved the vintage vibe of that room with the vaulted ceilings and huge windows. We worked with Brigid from the beginning, and she was a huge part of why we chose to book with NVCC. Brigid is amazing!! She was incredibly attentive and helped us create the wedding of our dreams - no exaggeration. Brigid always answered my emails quickly and even called me the week before the wedding just to check in to see how I was doing! They were so flexible - allowing us to customize our menu and effortlessly accommodating dietary restrictions, including my nut allergy. We also had a couple opportunities to work Matt, and he was great too! The day of our wedding, the staff of NVCC was like a well-oiled machine. Our maitre'd, Lee, was so on top of things! Everything ran so smoothly, we honestly didn't have to worry about one thing the entire event. She and the rest of the Day of staff went above and beyond to create a perfect, flawless day for us. Also, the food was delicious!! Our guests are still raving about the cuisine - especially the filet - and said they haven't ever had such amazing food at a wedding. They provided a private server exclusively for us, which meant we got to taste all of the hors d'oeuvres, as well as our entrees, wedding cake, and make-your-own cheesesteaks - all without any effort from us. All the food just arrived at our sweetheart table, so we actually got to eat at our wedding!! (Trust me, it saves so much time and really makes a difference.) The staff is amazing, the grounds and facilities are gorgeous, and the food is delicious! If we could go back in time, we would book NVCC for our wedding again and again! Thank you to Brigid, Lee, and the rest of the NVCC staff for creating the wedding of our dreams and memories we will treasure for years to come!
I can't express enough how much I love this venue! My husband and I only visited 2 venues when planning our big day, and choosing NVCC was our easiest decision by far. This was THE perfect setting for our Christmas wedding on 12/23/16. The staff is amazing -- Matt was our coordinator and he always made me feel at ease during the entire planning process (coming from a bride, that speaks volumes!). I knew from day 1 that the reception would be a hit. Food is exceptional (prime rib is very popular!); there's plenty of space (Crystal Ballroom fit 250 of our family and friends); and the interior decor style is classic-chic and served as the perfect blank canvas for all of the wedding decorations I incorporated. All in all, my husband and I, along with our families, could not have been happier with our NVCC experience. I have already started begging my friends to have their future receptions at NVCC, and I look forward to coming back as a wedding guest! :)
Very satisfied with our wedding at Northampton on November 26th! Alexis was a great help during the whole process: always responsive and accommodating. The food was amazing and is still being talked about now! We had a maitre'd that was very responsive to us and our parents during the day of, whether it was with drinks, appetizers we missed, or anything else. Would highly recommend Northampton for future couples.
Northampton Valley Country Club seriously exceeded our expectations! I couldn't be happier that we booked them! We heard great things; my husband's sister had her wedding there and recommended it, and I'm SO glad she did! Excellent price, really. One of the smartest purchases I think we made in the entire wedding planning. They had the best price of all of our top choices, and had many more options and credits for vendors, which makes a big difference in the overall cost, and takes a lot of the frustration out of finding vendors. NVCC has great communication with their affiliated vendors, and will take care of issues with them, should they arise, without a hitch. The venue is really lovely. It's beautiful and up to date, and even still they are continuously updating and renovating to keep it as current as possible, which I liked. I like the venue when we booked and went for meetings, but the day of, with all of the right lighting was really beautiful! Uplighting is totally worth it, by the way. We did a "cinderella's castle" blue and it looked awesome. We also had a candle light, indoor ceremony at the venue, and that was really beautiful as well! Very intimate and exactly what I imagined. Alexis (our planner) was WONDERFUL. She completely understood my vision (I'm a designer, so "the vision" was very specific and important to me!), and she was fabulous with execution. She made it very easy to keep communication clear, and she was very available. We were a handful to work with, and she never made us feel like a pain, and really went above and beyond. They really take a lot of the work out of it for you, even if you are doing a lot of DIY like we did! My husband and I truly felt like royalty on our big day. No exaggeration. Our maitre d (unfortunately I forget her name, we met the day of), was exceptional. She really took good care of us the whole day, and made sure that everything went smoothly. She and her wait staff were constantly checking to see if we needed another drink, they continuously refilled our champagne, and made us feel relaxed amongst the [happy] chaos. Between the ceremony and reception, my husband and I wanted some time alone in the bridal suite to take everything in. After an appropriate amount of time, our maitre d and waitstaff began getting us signature cocktails from the bar and brought us each of our appetizers from cocktail hour. I kid you not, the moment they were beginning to get cold we had an entire additional hot tray of them! Even though we didn't get to eat everything, we really appreciated that they wanted to give us an opportunity to try all of our cocktail hour goodies. They brought our pasta bar selections to our sweetheart table at dinner time, which we thought was also very considerate. Over all, I (and my mother) are big time worriers. I was SHOCKED at how unworried I felt the whole day! Seriously, shocked. Aside from normal pre-ceremony jitters, I felt very at ease. I was totally impressed by our day at NVCC, and I am not one who impresses easily. If you choose these guys, you will not regret it!
Everyone was so helpful with my husband and I! We got married October 1st and I really could not complain about one thing! Brigid was great through the whole planning process.
Pros and cons. Pros: We were able to get ready in the bridal suite the morning before my wedding, including hair and makeup, which was fantastic. It was also great that they had a location for a beautiful ceremony and reception, while also having the package to include the florist and the cake. It was a great price and a beautiful venue. Cons: The reception room was not set up until after our ceremony had started so our photographers have pictures of tables without the decorations provided. There was some lacking in the coordination of the event. My name was spelled incorrectly on the marquee at the entrance to the venue.
My husband and I just had our wedding ceremony/reception at NVCC in the Northampton Ballroom. The service, the staff, and the grounds were so beautiful. I don't think my husband and I could have been happier. We worked alongside with Brigid the wedding coordination who was just the greatest gift to work with! If you ever ran out of food a server would immediately be right there to offer you anymore of their delicious food. Please book your wedding with NVCC! You will NOT regret it!!
Everything about our special day was wonderful at Northampton! Our photos on the golf course outside came out breathtaking, the ceremony outside was perfect and the reception was fantastic! Brigid and Alexis were great to work with throughout the planning months ahead and the day of. Many guests raved about how wonderful the food was! We did the cheesesteak bar at the end of the night and it was a nice surprise for many of our guests! Overall our day could not have been better thanks to the beautiful atmosphere and awesome staff at Northampton :)
Let's just Brigid is phenomenal! She is very professional, sweet, and always there to answer questions. We were so fortunate to have Brigid as our coordinator at NHVCC. Brigid went above and beyond to make sure our day perfect and always answered our questions in a clear & concise manner. If Brigid was out of the office, I love that her emails would respond back as to when to expect a response and if it was urgent you could always get a hold of the other coordinators that were so sweet. Our wedding day was May 21, 2016! Our wedding was forecasted rain & although the ceremony was planned to be outside, they set the indoor ceremony space up more beautiful then I could have imagined. The food was the best we've ever had at a venue & our family still raves about the food & drinks. Brigid made sure that our wedding day was not shy of perfect. The employees and our Maitre d, Lee were also phenomenal & catered to us by making sure we always had what we needed. Due to us dancing the night away, we did not get to eat our slice of cake & they had it packed & ready to go for us after the reception. NHVCC grounds & venues were picturesque. You will regret not having your wedding here. Brigid and NHVCC treated us like family and gave us no worries on the day of our wedding. We can not thank Brigid & NHVCC enough! Love, Danice & Jared Giles
Such a beautiful and elegant venue. The staff are so attentive and accommodating. They pay extraordinary attention to detail and help to make the day flawless. Food is awesome- great variety and quantities. The bar staff made sure there wasn't an empty glass in the house. Such a great experience they really helped to make our day the best. day ever!
Northampton Valley Country Club deserves more than 5 stars! From the picking the venue to the actually wedding, every step went flawlessly. The venue itself is on stunning ground perfect for a wedding. The staff, the food, and the grounds are all amazing. They took all the hard work out of the process. Alexis was incredibly helpful and kind throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend this place!!!
We booked the Northampton Room because of the windows and high valued ceilings. Brigid and Alexis were amazing through the whole process. The room was done absolutely perfect! I heard so many people say they never got to eat and their bridal party was starving. Well not ours! Whike taking pics they brought out trays of appetizers for us which were outstanding. The food was presented beautifully and tasted fabulous. My husband and I had so many people come up and say they couldn't believe how wonderful the food was. I was told the steak was better than a steak house! The whole night ran flawlessly. The staff were absolutely amazing, my husband and I couldn't be happier with how our reception went.
I cannot rave enough about how perfect our wedding was at NVCC! I honestly did not have to worry about one single thing the entire day and the food was AMAZING. Matt made everything so easy from day one and it just turned into our dream wedding. Thank you NVCC and all the staff!!
We had our wedding at Northampton Valley Country Club on Oct 8th and I can't begin to express how perfect everything went. We worked with Matt to plan our wedding and he was just so wonderful to work with. He responded immediately to emails and accommodated our requests. He was great to work with. Both Matt and Brigid were on site the day of our wedding and they made sure the bridal party was taken care of before the reception. We had our reception in the Northampton Room and it could not have been more beautiful. The food was great. We received so many comments on how many appetizers there were to choose from and how the entrees were cooked perfect. Thank you so much to Matt and everyone at Northampton Valley for making our wedding perfect!! I would highly recommend working with them!!!
When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we were looking to get married within four or five months of our engagement (and no, I wasn't pregnant ;)), but were not sure what quality of venue we would be able to find on such short notice. A family friend recommended we check out Northampton, and when we went to check it out, we just fell in love. And just our luck, they happened to have a date available that worked perfectly for us in the Crystal Ballroom (they are usually booked pretty full, so I think we really lucked out!). Our coordinator, Brigid, made our planning a breeze, and the staff as a whole was helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. Best of all, the day of our wedding was better than we could have ever dreamed. The venue was perfectly decorated and the staff even handled decorating our arch, which we were not expecting. The entire day, you could tell that the staff really cared about what they were doing and made sure we and our entire bridal party and families were well taken care of. From taking care of us in the bridal suite, to seamlessly guiding everyone through the ceremony, and making sure we and the bridal party had what we wanted to drink and eat throughout the night (including right off the aisle!), they just made the day so easy and made us feel so special. All of our guests were impressed by the staff, as well as the beauty and cleanliness of the facility. On top of that, our photos turned out beautifully as the venue is extremely photogenic! Looking back on it, we could not have asked for a better wedding venue and wish we could go back and relive it again! We' couldn't recommend Northampton more!! :-)
We had our wedding here on 10/14/2016. My sister and one of our good friends had their weddings here and we knew right away this is where we wanted ours. From the food, to the service, to the venue, everything was great! Matt is/was awesome, was Lee. Also, make sure you request Kevin as your server!! He is the best. We love Northampton!
Northampton Valley Country Club was such a great find for us. Since the moment I reached out to NVCC, Alexis was always by our side. Any time I had a question (which I am the type A person so I had a ton of questions), I always got a response back within a reasonable amount of time. Being a bride you envision what you want to a T. Alexis and her staff made that envision come to light for our wedding, They went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We were suppose to have an outdoor wedding on the patio of the Northampton Ballroom but the weather wasn't allowing us to have that. Last minute the weather cleared up and everyone snapped into action to move everything from inside to outside so we were able to have the outdoor wedding we wanted. Any time either myself or the groom wanted anything (down to dipping sauce, drinks, etc), we had someone standing there with what we wanted. They truly made our wedding special. I cannot speak highly enough of NVCC and their staff. Everyone raved (and are still talking) about how delicious the food was! I love hearing everyone say that our wedding ranks up there, some has their number one wedding if not within their top 3. We couldn't have had that without Alexis and her team. I cannot thank them enough!
We were married on October 7, 2016 at Northampton Valley Country Club and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day! The moment we looked at the venue we knew this would be where we became husband and wife. The venue is absolutely beautiful both inside and out and the staff is second to none. Every step of the planning process was made so simple and stress free. The day of our wedding went seamless thanks to a very experienced staff. The whole day was absolutely perfect. Not only did my husband and I feel special but the servers and bartenders made all of our guests feel special as well. The food was incredible and we are still receiving compliments about the venue overall. If we could give more than 5 stars we absolutely would. Thank you NVCC for making my dream wedding even more then I could have ever asked for!
Hands down the best place to get married. Matt made the planning and execution so easy for us every step of the way. I am very detail oriented and everything was done exactly how i imagined it would be. We looked at a lot of other venues and we could not find one for the price of NVCC that included everything they have to offer. Guests are still raving about the food 5 months later and I will continue to rave about the venue from here on out. Thank you! Thank you!
Our wedding at the Northampton Valley Country Club couldn't have been more PERFECT!! We were so impressed with how professional everyone was. The staff made sure everyone had what they needed and if they didn't they would get it for them right away. Our maitre d was Lee, she was so sweet and by our side the whole time. The food was amazing. The room and tables looked so beautiful. It definitely was my fairy tail, princess wedding. They all made it so special. Through the whole process I dealt with Alexis Sklar, she was my go to. She helped me every step of the way. She always got back to me right away and guided me through everything. There was never a moment I was confused or didn't know what was going on. She is awesome and so good at her job. I could not have done it without her!! Thank you to all that made our day so special. <3 Jill & Brian
The best venue which deserves more than five stars. My husband and I are very happy with choosing NHVCC for our reception, not only because of their beautiful landscape, but also because of the way they take care of their customers. We had a wonderful time working with Matt!!! He made the whole process very easy and reassuring us everything would be taken care of, and he was right! The whole staff worked so well together to give us the best service on our wedding day!!! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding or any other special occasion. You will not regret your decision.
I loved my sisters wedding so much that I decided to have my own wedding at Northampton as well. The service is impeccable! All of the staff is so attentive and friendly. I recommend Northampton Valley Country Club to everyone!
I cannot say enough amazing things about NVCC!! My husband Joe and I just got married there 2 weeks ago and I am still in awe of how amazing and absolute perfect everything was for our wedding day. This was the first place we went to see and just from how gorgeous the entire country club is, to how friendly and wonderful their staff are just won us over immediately. After going to look at other venues we were still in love with NVCC. We worked with Brigid the entire step of the way and she made every wish come true for us. She was always there whenever we needed her and always able to provide advice or options to help with anything we needed. Once wedding day came they went above and beyond to make sure everything happened perfectly. We always had someone there to help me and my husband with any drink, food, or questions we had. Every single one of our guests said how much fun they had at our wedding, how perfect everything went, how amazingly delicious our food was, and how happy they were to be able to spend that perfect day with us. If we could do it all over again we would not change a thing!!! I am going to try and convince all of my future friends getting married to go to NVCC because we want to go back!! Thank you so much to all of the amazing staff for making our day perfect!!
