Spring Site Visits

As the snow is slowly melting and temperatures begin to rise, now is a good time to begin scheduling a site visit if you are planning a tented wedding.

Weddings, Tents & Events offers complimentary site visits for all of our tented weddings and events. It is helpful to have us come by and measure the site, make recommendations for locations, flooring (if needed) and to review your preferences for delivery location, delivery time etc.

We are also happy to make creative suggestions for your location. Some private homes offer a variety of design options given what is already there.

Perhaps you have a lovely stone patio that would be the perfect place for the cocktail tent

Surrounding trees might be a good opportunity for lighting

A walkway to the tent could be created using lanterns or luminaries

Whether you just need us to help with the logistical aspects or need creative help with design, we are always happy to help and go beyond our service as an Event Rental Company.

An Intimate, Rustic Vermont Venue: Amee Farm and Lodge

If you are looking for a rustic, intimate space in Vermont to have a wedding, I highly recommend Riverside Farms’ Amee Farm.

Though I work with Riverside Farms often through my work at Weddings, Tents & Events, I have never had the chance to tour their beautiful properties. Yesterday, Jenna and I ventured the back roads of Vermont to Pittsfield to see the splendor ourselves.

The entire property at Riverside Farms is just spectacular. The expansive lawn between the two beautiful barns is perfect for an outdoor ceremony or tented cocktail hour and the amenities that they offer, such as the Bridal Suite, Groom’s Cabin and The Stables create an exclusive and peaceful environment for the couple and their wedding party. There is so much comfort for a couple to be able to stay where they are having the wedding.

Their second location, Amee Farm, is just down the street. This is the perfect option for a couple who wants to have the same exclusive, peaceful and beautiful experience that they would have at Riverside Farms, but who want a more intimate, smaller setting. The main event space at Amee Farm can accommodate up to 125 guests.

The event space is lovely –  The rustic style and reclaimed features that you see in the barns at Riverside are present throughout the Amee Farm.

One side of the space showcases large french doors that open onto the rolling hill where couple often choose to have cocktail hour. The large, reclaimed wood doors that separate the main space from smaller nooks and storage spaces break up the white walls beautifully.

A staircase leading up to the second floor reveals the start of the guest bedrooms (which continues onto the next two floors), and reveals the most cozy and charming living areas, a dining space, and a kitchen. The deck off the front of the building on the second floor only continued to impress me, as they had placed beautiful Adirondack chairs to help the lodging guests relax even more and take it all in. They also offer a continental breakfast every morning!

Porch

To top it all off, part of the property includes a General Store which is just as charming as the rest. They do offer catering for those looking for a more casual meal, and had wonderful choices for vegetarians and vegans.
