  • There isn’t enough words to describe our experience with The Bull Run as our wedding venue! We booked our 10.3.2020 wedding in Jan 2019. Amanda is amazing from the moment you meet her! She is responsive to questions and none are too silly! We had our fabulous tasting and had planned to meet in March for table landscape. That was before Covid...who would have expected any of what has transpired in 2020?!? No one! In all the unknown Amanda continued to answer my questions and concerns even when I assume she was not working at the time. She reassured me and made sure I was ok. We sent out our save the dates and hoped our wedding would go on. But like the rest of 2020 nothing is following a schedule. I was so sad and torn. I wanted our wedding date and music and videographer to capture moments of love and happiness. We decided we would postpone. Until Amanda said they are offering brides to keep their date and have a small ceremony only at no extra cost. Or we co... Read more

  • The Bull Run is definitely a hidden gem! We fell in love with the covered bridge and the twinkle lights and Amanda the wedding coordinator! The entire process was easy and seamless--much in part due to Amanda!--we never had any worries about anything going smoothly. The food was fantastic. The atmosphere was wonderful and that bridge and those lights are magazine worthy! Love, love, loved it.

  • Choosing to have my wedding at the Bull Run was easily the best choice I have ever made! Amanda was amazing. She is a fantastic person, and really really knows her wedding stuff. She was extremely flexible and willing to let us to basically design our own dream wedding (with her help and expertise of course!). We were on a budget and they were so understanding and worked with us so we could get the most out of our wedding experience. The prop room Amanda has with stuff from leftover from other weddings was a godsend and helped me create my dream centerpieces. The food was delicious (from the few bites I got any time to try, but I was told it was amazing). They even helped us do an ice cream sundae bar - so fun. We had a family emergency the month of our wedding and my fiance's mother was in the hospital, and The Bull Run (Amanda in particular) was really amazing. We dropped off everything we needed the day before the wedding and she set it up perfectly as we planned. I would have never... Read more

  • My husband and I had the most perfect wedding day. The Bull Run was beautiful, affordable and just what we were looking for for our small intimate wedding. Amanda was amazing to work with and I would recommend her in second. I wish we could do it again!

  • Amanda was very easy to speak to and highly competent. She was always in a great mood! We were not very stressed during our wedding planning experience and she had a lot to do with it. The wedding itself was fantastic. We chose The Bull Run because it was the most affordable option that could host our whole family, but in no way would I say we sacrificed quality for a good price. The food was fantastic. Everything was decorated beautifully and the staff were wonderful. I recommend their wedding services without hesitation.

  • We had so much fun! Amanda was professional and made our day perfect. She arranged flowers from trader joes on the day of the wedding and they looked great! So Amanda was our wedding coordinator and florist. Haha. Also, when there was difficult with the music (we used our phones), she fixed the issues immediately. The food was excellent and the space was perfect. We couldn't have been happier! Thanks Amanda and the staff at the bull run!!

  • The Bull Run went above and beyond what I had expected. Amanda the amazing coordinator is amazing and will become your best friend in a matter of moments. She’s the most organized person I have ever met. She ensured from start to finish that everything was as perfect as it could be. The food was five stars and definitely was the talk of the evening and people are still talking about (Try the mashed potatoes and the salmon!) our wedding day was truly magical because of the bull run and I couldn’t thank them enough.

  • The Bull Run is a fun and unique venue to have a wedding, the Covered Bridge is especially wonderful for a ceremony and pictures. Amanda, the coordinator, was fantastic throughout the whole process. She was always ready to offer advice and help with finding creative ideas for the wedding. The owners are friendly and attentive, and the venue as a whole is very flexible and accomidating. The food was great and the event packages have a lot to offer. I would highly recommend this venue.

  • We can’t complain about this venue or our awesome coordinator at all!!! Amanda was amazing to say the least! She answered every question we had, helped every step of the way, and made us and our families feel important!! Not to mention, the food and atmosphere is outstanding!!! We still are receiving calls about it! If you love clam chowder, then this is the place for you!! You definitely get your money’s worth, and feel not just like an object, but valued individuals! The Bull Run is the place to go if you’re looking for great food, fun, and a family feel :) We will be back for food in the future! Xo The Graziano’s

  • Due to Covid, our original wedding plans in Ireland came to a screeching halt. After reaching out to The Bull Run, we were put in touch with their lovely wedding coordinator, Amanda, who was so helpful and accommodating! She worked with the owners to allow us to have our reception on the covered bridge. Safety precautions were followed to a T, but despite this, everything felt normal and wonderful! All our guests said that it was the best reception food they've ever had. We cannot recommend The Bull Run enough!

  • We had our ceremony at Farandnear (an outdoor only venue) in Shirley, and not wanted to tempt the fates with weather, opted to have our reception at the Bull Run. We had our dinner in the garden room, which was a great size, and the food was wonderful. Amanda, there wedding coordinator, was very responsive, and successfully manged several guests with severe dietary restrictions without an hiccups. A big plus is that Bull Run will do all the room set up, including decorating, for you. Win! The only downside for us was that they were having a concert that night, and at the end of the dinner (around 8:30), we could very clearly hear the concert. Since we were ending at 9pm anyway, it wasn't a huge deal, but you might want to confirm that their isn't a concert the same night if you plan to go longer into the night. Beautiful place, great food, easy to work with. Worth it!
