Wedding out of a fairy tale

Rated 5 out of 5
October 16, 2021

The owners are absolutely amazing, the house is to die for and our wedding couldn’t have gone more perfect than how it did!! ❤️ We originally planned for an outdoor wedding but the weather did not allow, but we set everything up inside and it couldn’t have been more beautiful.
The owners helped us every step of the way, the breakfast that they provide was very simple but none the less great and very easy.
There is more than enough room for some of your friends and family to stay the night. The beds were very comfortable, and the fireplace in the master bedroom is just absolutely peaceful to watch at night.
All of our friends and family fell in love with this place and how perfect the set up was, they have an outdoor fire-pit that we all sat around Friday night and enjoyed the stars and crickets.

October 2, 2021

We couldn’t be happier with our decision the use The Soule House for our wedding weekend. Lindsay and her mom took amazing care of us! We had a small wedding dress snafu, and they were quick to offer a needle and thread to help! It was such a beautiful spot for me and my girls to spend the night before, and for the bridal party and their spouses to stay the night of the wedding. We also held our small, casual rehearsal dinner here and it was perfect. They served us a delicious breakfast both days, cleaned up the countless bottles of water we left all over the house, and made us feel us right at home. Every person who stayed said how comfortable the beds were. I would definitely recommend this place! They also have a beautiful place to hold your wedding , in the carriage barn.

Isham Family Farm 

Venue

Isham Family Farm offers couples a romantic, rustic setting for a Vermont wedding. Couples can make use of the restored barn and expansive grounds for a full weekend of celebrations.

In Their Own Words:

We believe that it is a privilege to host such an important day in a couples’ lives! Our restored dairy barn was beautifully renovated in 2012. The spacious interior of the barn and beautiful landscape make for a unique Vermont wedding venue, available June-October. 

Wedding ceremonies can be held in the barn, outside on the stone patio, or on the west side of the farm high on a hill beside a beautiful three-acre pond and mountain views. 

Here at the farm we believe that a wedding should be more than just an evening in the barn, but should include a full weekend. For this reason, we allow couples the use of the barn and farm from Thursday morning at 9am through Sunday at noon for their wedding weekend. 

You can have your rehearsal dinner here and a follow up brunch for no additional costs. For an additional fee we can include tables, chairs, benches and an oak bar for up to 200 guests.

We love to be part of your lifetime of celebrations beyond your wedding! We see many couples come back with their families to pick berries in the summer, select pumpkins in the fall, or to cut your own family Christmas Tree. We love to welcome couples back to the farm for these special memories!

Located in historic Manchester Village, Hildene, the 412 acre Lincoln family estate is just a short drive from three of the regions’ most famed ski resorts, and within an hour to many of Southern Vermont, The Berkshires and Hudson Valley’s most beloved cultural sites.  

You and your guests will be captivated by the area’s charm, cradled by its mountains, and pleased with the easy access to recreation.  Most importantly, they will be inspired by the beauty that surrounds them in all directions. 

Your mile long drive on the country road that leads to the home gives entry into another world entirely, from the gated entry, on past Hildene Farm’s Goat Dairy and open meadows, and through the cross-roads of Hildene’s 12 mile trail system. Once alit, your guests will be in awe of unparalleled views of Equinox Mountain and the Taconic Range.  

Passing through the mansion and out into the historic formal gardens, the view expands to include Vermont’s Green Mountains, with a stunning overlook with the famed Battenkill River Valley below.  

After a breathtaking ceremony at the overlook and elegant cocktail hour in the formal garden, guests gather for a celebratory dinner featuring award winning foods of Pangaea, whose ingredients are farm to table Hildene.  The glow of the mansion on its majestic promontory, the sunset over the mountains, and the drifting evening lullaby from nature’s vignettes, give rise to joyous reception. 

This is your Hildene wedding story – one that you and your guests will share for years to come.

The Inn sleeps 24-27 guests. Included in the room rate is a hot two course cooked to order breakfast as well as fresh cookies delivered to each room with tea and cider available in the afternoon. 

Couples love to explore the grounds with their photographer while their guests relax by the firepit on the back deck, out in the garden, down by the pond or out on the front porch.

Sterling Ridge Resort

Venue | Accommodations

Sterling Ridge Resort is a log cabin resort nestled in the mountains providing a unique space for couples to celebrate with loved ones for an entire wedding weekend. The Resort provides several options for ceremony and reception spaces with lovely mountain views. On site accommodations in the cozy, rustic cabins are available. 

In Their Own Words:

Sterling Ridge Resort is a log cabin resort nestled in the mountains of Jeffersonville, VT. With stunning views of Mt. Mansfield and cozy log cabin lodging, Sterling Ridge is the perfect setting for weddings, events, getaways, and vacations.

It’s the perfect venue for the couple who envisions their wedding to be more than just one fleeting day – but instead an incredible experience they can reflect on for a lifetime. 

The Resort’s private log cabins and larger homes set in the mountains of Northern Vermont create a cozy, rustic atmosphere, making Sterling Ridge unlike other standard wedding accommodations or event venues. 

The scenic property is complete with two picturesque outdoor ceremony sites and one outdoor reception site for the special day – making it a beautiful place for an outdoor wedding, where a majority of wedding guests can stay right on property.

Accommodations:

For couples who are getting married at nearby barn-style venues and have invited out-of-town guests, Sterling Ridge is also the perfect place for lodging – guests can enjoy being just a short shuttle-ride away from the venue. Wedding couples staying at Sterling Ridge can host events before or after their wedding on-site, such as brunches, rehearsal dinners, welcome parties and more to make the most of their wedding weekend. 

Sterling Ridge can host up to 200 event guests at its outdoor sites, and lodge roughly 100 guests in its 24 log cabins and two larger homes. For events of 25 people or less, there is an indoor space that is complete with a common area, kitchens, and lodging for up to 14 guests. Some lodging is included in the standard wedding package, and room blocks are offered for events. Accommodations even include some dog-friendly units. 

Couples spend so much time and money planning their wedding for the special day to go by so quickly… At Sterling Ridge, all the planning can be totally worth it, with an experience that can last a little longer and mean a little more.

Favorite moment during a wedding: When the couple turns to walk back down the aisle as a married couple. The pure joy on their faces while they walk through family and friends and into the rest of their life together always makes me smile!
 
Favorite Vermont activity: A simple walk around the pond near our home with my dog! We live in such a beautifully serene state, and a walk always reminds me of that.
 
Dance floor request: Anything I jammed to at a middle school dance! Nelly, Kesha, Baby Bash, Usher – you know, the “classics.” 😉
