Let your imagination grow as you plant the idea of a wedding in this inn’s flower-filled courtyard
The flower-filled courtyard of the Red Lion Inn is an absolute joy – and the perfect spot for your garden wedding. Flowers are the first thing your guests will see when they enter the lovely white inn: They hang from baskets and in boxes on the big welcoming porch. The pretty patio continues the floral theme. Work with the inn staff and culinary team to put flowers on your reception tables, and you’ll feel everything is blossoming. The experienced staff will work with you every step of the way to ensure your day is worry-free. Lodging options for the wedding couple and guests include charming main inn rooms, guest houses – even a turn-of-the-20th-century firehouse.

It’s a natural: Native woodlands make a beautiful background for your garden wedding
It’s hard to imagine lovelier gardens than those at the Porches Inn, where intimate, non-traditional weddings are a specialty. The inn’s extensive native woodland garden means you can exchange your vows in a Wedding Glen on top of a hill behind the inn: an outdoor deck in the middle of the garden. Party afterward in the Woodland Gazebo at the top of the garden, a nifty little “clubhouse” wired for electricity and wifi. Inside reception venues include the light-filled Breakfast Room, the Board Room with old-fashioned blackboard walls, Studio 9 with a full-size catering kitchen and the spacious Building 7 with 20-foot ceilings. The inn works with local caterers and event planners, ensuring cuisine and decor to fit individual tastes.
