DH&R’s Stowe Mountain Lodge, named “#5 Top Resort in the United States” by Condé Nast Traveler’s readers, offers Petite Weddings, ideal for the couple who desires a personalized, intimate experience. Weddings for up to 40 guests are perfect for short-term, spur-of-the-moment or longer term planning.
Comprehensive packages are available, or couples can partner with Stowe Mountain Lodge’s Personal Wedding Specialist to create a bespoke wedding, which truly reflects the couple’s desires. Creative collaboration is key, and no detail is overlooked. As stated by the hotel’s Catering Sales Manager, Calais Van Horn, “There is no longer such a thing as a ‘traditional wedding’. It’s all about the couple.” She continues, “Mom wants ‘ballroom’; bride wants ‘barn’. We define our ambiance as ‘rustic elegance’, offering the happiest medium.”
Executive Chef Josh Berry’s outstanding farm-to-table cuisine (including cocktails!) is featured, and the menu can be created according to the couples’ affinity, such as recreating a special dish that is resonant of their courtship and relationship. Stowe Mountain Lodge partners with Vermont farmers, cheese makers, micro-breweries, and other talented artisans, as well as small-farm advocacy groups such as the Vermont Fresh Network and Chefs Collaborative to create a unique dining experience.
Wedding ceremony and reception location options include the Ballroom Terrace, with open-air views of Vermont’s highest peak, Mount Mansfield. The hotel’s Junior Ballroom offers soft lighting and rustic yet modern décor in the Vermont tradition. Stowe Mountain Lodge’s Personal Wedding Specialists can also arrange weddings for up to 30 guests at the non-denominational Mountain Chapel, in the Green Mountains of Stowe Mountain Resort.
Arrangements for Petite Weddings can be made by calling Gabi Lungu, 802.760.4776.
No blood test or waiting period is necessary to marry in Vermont. Same-sex couples are also allowed to legally wed, as of September 1, 2009.
