With a deep sense of history, unparalleled scenic beauty, and loads of charm, New England is a great region for hosting a destination wedding.
The state of Vermont might not be the most populous state in the Northeastern US, but it has the type of landscapes and the classy-but-rural feel that many people imagine when dreaming about creating the perfect New England-based wedding.
The estates that host weddings in Vermont all have a dose of this romantically rustic ambiance, but they are certainly not without luxuries.
Let’s just say that these places are perfect for anyone who wants a wedding that doesn’t rely on gaudy decorations and over the top facilities to impress the attendees, but rather focuses on offering real charm and understated classiness.
Vermont’s estates provide the backdrop and all the requisite comforts and services so that the bride and groom can focus on what weddings are really all about: making memories and celebrating romance.
