In this guide, we will cover our top 5 favorite Vermont wedding venues, why we love them, and lastly why you will fall in love with them too! We will be honest, it was so hard to pick out our top 5 favorite Vermont wedding venues. However, these are all places we have worked at and could totally see ourselves getting married at!
Some of our favorite weddings from both friends and clients have been at The Barn at Smugglers’ Notch. From the white shiplap walls to the gorgeous chandeliers, there is certainly not a square inch of this barn that has not been thought about. Overall, we can tell you, the owners, Steve and Jen take extreme pride in their venue!
One of our favorite ways to dress up the venue is to add greenery and flowers to the chandeliers and staircase. Adding the greenery to the chandeliers above helps to bring out the cozy vibe and of course, adds a touch of color. Nevertheless, we find it to be a fairly affordable option to really dress up the venue and keep your guests talking about your special day. We also often find wedding couples opting for greenery garlands to run down the farmhouse tables as centerpieces.
The location of the barn is another thing we feel we should note. The venue is tucked into the hills of Jeffersonville and therefore offers a stunning mountain backdrop for your outdoor ceremony. While the fields around offer beautiful wildflowers in the summer, the venue truly comes alive in the fall. The foliage here in the fall is out of this world hence it being one of our top 5 venues! Given these points, you can see why The Barn at Smugglers Notch is on our list.
The Maquam Barn and Winery is a new venue on the scene! Despite being new, it offers the most beautiful vineyard view and a stunning view of Cobble Hill and Arrowhead Mountain. Given that the surrounding view is so incredible, we have to mention one of our favorite features of the venue, the arbor. The arbor was custom-built for the venue with old beams from the adjacent farmhouse, therefore, making this big bold arbor something you won’t forget.
Much like the Barn at Smuggs, this venue also offers gorgeous chandeliers and a grand staircase. While you can’t quite put greenery on the chandeliers you can dawn the entire staircase in greenery as well as the wall behind your sweetheart table. Floral options are, for the most part, endless at this venue.
The barn is painted a classic red but has a really neat wooden silo attached. The silo offers panoramic views. We were incredibly lucky to be part of the first mini‑mony at the barn this past Summer. Since then the barn and its vineyard views have not left our heads. In other words, we cannot wait to work here again in 2023 and beyond.
The Vermont Swiss and Bloom Farm is a dreamy barn located in Enosburg Falls. This 1850s hand‑crafted timber frame barn is surrounded by beautiful gardens of lush blooming hydrangeas. Once you open the doors to the interior of the barn you will immediately fall in love with the character and unique features the barn offers. Our favorite features (besides that grand staircase) are the chandeliers and vintage couches!
The farm also offers a large farmhouse for you and your wedding party to stay at with 7 bedrooms this house holds a ton of people and is the perfect spot to get ready for your wedding. This venue also offers a fire pit, undoubtedly the perfect wind down to the perfect evening.
While this hasn’t been done at the barn yet, we dream of doing greenery dripping from all the exposed beams and a lush floral install that frames the vintage couches. Thinking of having your wedding here and wanting to create a floral magic moment to wow your guests? Despite us working here so many times, we’re certainly happy to do an onsite consultation to show you the endless options that can be done!
The Lake Bomoseen Lodge and Taproom combine all our favorite features into one venue. This lodge is nestled among the shores of Lake Bomoseen. If the greenery chandeliers are your thing this is another venue to check out! The main dining room offers two large chandleries as well as exposed beams. Once again, we will preach how incredibly beautiful and how much of a statement piece these items can be when dressed up a little with greenery.
The Lake Bomoseen Lodge has many ceremony spots to choose from as well! From the private island in Lake Bomoseen to the shores of the lake and lastly a cool hillside spot with a stunning view. We also find that couples love the Lake Bomoseen lodge because it has onsite lodging for their guests. This helps save both guests’ time and worry as well as the couple’s money since there is no shuttling from a hotel to the venue.
This venue is also great because they have the option to do winter weddings here. For later season weddings, we can totally see lighting up the room in a warm glow with freshly cut Christmas trees. We could also see small fir tips at each place setting with a hot cocoa bar as you enter the lodge. The Lake Bomoseen Lodge has endless possibilities to dress it up. Hence, we can’t wait to see what the future holds for us there.
The Inn at Burklyn is a sprawling estate on 86 acres of lush grounds surrounded by beautiful mountain views. This luxurious mansion is located in East Burke, Vermont but it is totally worth the drive! Another reason we love this mansion is because it houses 14 ensuite bedrooms for couples and guests to stay at. The Inn at Burklyn offers multiple ceremony sites with both our favorites being the intimate garden and greenhouse area.
Another one of the most notable features of the Inn at Burklyn is the gorgeous greenhouse tucked off to the side of the inn. In the summer the greenhouse is crawling with beautiful green vines and blooms. Because of this, we find that the greenhouse offers a beautiful spot to hang a floral chandelier. Other than the greenhouse, one of our other favorite spots to decorate with flowers is the large porch.
The Inn at Burklyn is certainly a must-see for couples who are looking for something a little different than the traditional Vermont barn wedding. We have near-endless ideas of how to dress up this beautiful mansion and cannot wait to be back here with more floral designs soon.
