Make plans to hold your wedding and reception at this charming in, and you’ll be making history
Your wedding can be memorable – or it can be truly historic! At the romantic Deerfield Inn, where guests have been welcomed since 1884, you can exchange your vows and hold a cocktail reception in a quaint parlor or dine in an elegant space where French doors open to a patio. Outside receptions and ceremonies, from elegant affairs to casual barbecues, can be held under tents on the lawn or in the gardens. For smaller receptions, Champney’s Restaurant has period wallpaper, a fireplace and chandeliers. Guests staying in one of the charming inn’s 24 rooms or suites will enjoy strolling tree-lined Main Street with its 18th- and 19th-century homes, dining in the inviting tavern and exploring this history-filled region.
Getting married on a mountaintop? That’s do-able at this spectacular resort
Here’s an idea for a one-of-a-kind wedding: exchanging your vows on top of a mountain, surrounded by guests and sweeping views of the valley below. The experienced wedding planners at Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort can make that happen. But they can also help with a quieter, more intimate ceremony under the trees by a brook or in a cozy lodge room by a roaring fire. Reception locations include a lodge with mountain views from a stone patio with a fire pit, for up to 350 guests; a lodge with a huge stone fireplace and large stone patio; and two rooms in the Country Inn with mountainside views. Full catering services ensure your food will be as memorable as those views.
