Spring Wedding

Contact Our Wedding Team!

With full use of our expansive grounds, your guests can spend their day hiking, biking, kayaking, or maybe play a set of tennis. For a more relaxed approach, take advantage of our terrific spa on property to indulge in a relaxing massage or facial, or maybe enjoy a quiet read under a birch tree.

The spring season is all about renewal — Mother Earth begins to flower and the landscape flourishes with green everywhere... Weave the various shades of green into your decor and integrate the spectacular variety of spring flowers. There's so much beauty "springing" up during this season, so why not take advantage of all of the beautiful aspects of this time of year!

Our menus will typically focus on tiny sweet peas, local baby lettuces, purple asparagus, strawberries and baby arugula to harmonize with the first crops of the year harvested by our farmers in the Berkshires. Try our special Rhubarb Champagne Cocktail or maybe a Strawberry Vodka Pink Lemonade!

Spring Wedding Ideas

Ask our Executive Chef to create a signature cocktail for your wedding and have it available to your guests at the inn's bar and at the reception. It's a great way to personalize your wedding any time of year, and spring is no exception. Consider drinks that are crisp, cool, and refreshing -- think Limoncello or champagne cocktails...

Nonalcoholic drink - consider a lemonade bar. Serve different flavored lemonades -- raspberry, strawberry and other seasonal fruits. It's flavorful and the colors can be spectacular!

Consider a spring theme for your salad course - entice your guests with mixed baby greens or mesclun, which have more of a fresh, straight-from-the-garden appeal. Adding a fruity element, like a few berries or a fruit-infused vinaigrette will give it a spring flair.

Your main course should be on the lighter side - popular wedding menu items (such chicken or fish) can be given a seasonal flair by using fresh herbs, including rosemary and mint. Chutneys and marinades with a citrus or fruity base will add to the springtime theme.

Desserts and other sweets can also take on the spring theme - monogrammed petit fours, chocolate-dipped strawberries and other seasonal fruits will compliment your dessert table while not overloading the calories.

Create favors by using spring bulbs

For centerpieces - spring flowers! (lilacs, hyacinths, tulips, daffodils, forsythia)

Bridesmaids? - pastel colors are in season!

Consider tree branch centerpieces with birds/bird nests and/or pussywillows

Thinking of a March wedding? Consider a St. Patrick's Day theme, with an Irish-inspired celebration – Guinness stout, corned beef & cabbage, Irish soda bread, lucky charms and shamrocks, rainbows, etc.
