  • Wedding: June 2008 - St. Catherine of Genoa, Jin Asian Cuisine Restaurant

Hi finbladz,

I’m not much help becuase I mostly looked at venues closer to the city. But I did a quick search for you: I used the terms "white mountain wedding."  Here’s a couple links that I came up with:

Lincoln Woodstock

Sunset Hill House 

Darby Field

Mountain View Grand

Indian Head Resort 

I’m sure there are a lot more (as these are all in NH, I think). Again, I don’t know anything about any of these places, but I figure this might help you get started. I hope this helps!

You could also look in the Berkshires.

I am orginally a Western Mass girl, even though I now live on the North Shore, and everyone else thinks Massachusetts ends at 495…

Lenox, Lee, Great Barrington…If you didn’t want to go out that far, my friends got married at a beautiful farm in Spencer (near Sturbridge) Zukas Hilltop Barn. 

It would be especially beautiful in the Fall. It over looks rolling hills in all directions and would just be lit up by foliage.

Good luck!

I went to a wedding at Zukas….totally gorgeous!  I would definitely recommend a Sat wedding though….we went to a Friday night wedding, and 495 S was an absolute bear. The only road in to Zukas drives you right past the gazebo where the outdoor weddings are held…so all the guests watched us drive into the parking lot just as it was starting. But the food was great and it’s really an ideal venue.

A couple of popular venues in southern NH are The Granite Rose and Bedford Village Inn. Good luck!

Hi! You should definitely check out Castle in the Clouds (in NH). Amazing views of the Mountains! I happen to visit there one time when a wedding was going on and it was gorgeous – a bit pricey though I think.

Mount Washington Hotel as well in NH!! Right in the mountains and a river that runs through the poperty… not sure if the river it big enough to kayak in, but I’m sure there are places close by.

 

Good luck!!

I agree with guinness, Western MA is beautiful and sounds like it would be great for what you are looking for! I’m getting married in Amherst, in town, but I know there are beautiful venues in the area (the area being anywhere within an hour radius, to us haha), near mountains and rivers. I’ll go back through my research and see if I can find something appropriate!

Ok, this isn’t W Mass, and I’m not sure how far into ME you were looking, but Mount Desert Island (Acadia National PArk) is beautiful if you are looking for mountains and water (though this is ocean water). The Bar Harbor (the big town) website has some info on weddings though I’m sure you could look into renting a house on a quieter part of the island: http://www.barharborinfo.com/weddings_frame.html

In Western Mass, here are some places where they may allow you to hold a ceremony/reception – since you are planning pretty far ahead you might be able to reserve a spot. They don’t allow too many events in one season (I know, because I fell in love with one too late!)

You might also look through this website to see if any of these falls are adjacent to campgrounds that you might be able to rent out, or if a town might give you a permit to hold a ceremony: http://www.newenglandwaterfalls.com/ 

It’s not much but I hope it helps!

  • Wedding: Black Rock Country Club, Hingham Ma

The Berkshires are lovely – and Cranwell (http://www.cranwell.com/weddings.php) is gorgeous.  I’m not sure how far you were looking to travel for the wedding – it’s at least 2 1/2 – 3 hour drive from the Boston area in Lenox.

When we were still trying to figure out what to do, we looked at Alyson’s Orchard in NH. It’s right on the Conneticut River so it overlooks VT and NH. You might be able to do rafting there, I don’t know. You can fish and row on the pond located at the farm. Keene is the next town over with a decent selection of hotels and shopping centers so you’re not far from necessities. The orchard also has some lodging and a beautiful event room. There is also a deck for BBQs if you wanted a casual rehersal dinner on site. You’re also guaranteed to be the only event that weekend. We didn’t end up going with them though because it’s a couple hour drive out there from where we are and they were too expensive for us.

I am getting married in Western MA, but we are having the ceremony/reception at Mass MoCA (modern art museum). I have had several people mention that they loved Gedney Farm.  It is a rural, beautiful locale.  Here is the link: http://www.gedneyfarm.com/

I second Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor~ We just shot a wedding up there at the Asticou Inn Northeast Harbor and it was stunning!! Lots of outdoors to do and your guests will enjoy themselves as well!

Hi!

My husband and I got married at Zukas Farm and it was wonderful! I’ve also been to Mt. Hood, and Zukas isn’t the same vibe as Oregon, but it’ll give you that outdoorsy New England feel. Our reception was in the tent out back and it was amazing.

My husband and I are also wedding photographers, so we’ve had the chance to see many other venues. One of our absolute favorites was at The Inn at Mountain View Farms in Vermont. http://www.innmtnview.com/ The reception was in the converted barn- several tables were in the stalls! The photos on the website don’t do it justice, so email me if you want to look at more photos from the wedding we were a part of 🙂
