Love Notes

Idyllic nature meets gourmet cuisine meets spectacular celebration

January 7, 2024

We simply cannot rave enough. The setting is sublime, the food shows off the best of Vermont, and the staff make you feel at home while also setting the stage for a momentous celebration.

Weddings at Lareau are a well-oiled machine. What they do has been developed over many years and works seamlessly. This inspired so much confidence in us from the very first time we visited through the last week-of check in. Simultaneously, there was also plenty of room for creativity to make our day special. Helen was a great collaborator who kept us ahead of schedule so we didn’t get stressed. She really listened to our vision and was ready to go the extra mile when we had an idea, or be open if it might not work and offer alternate suggestions. Helen was also so helpful when it came to our other vendors, who often gushed about past experiences doing weddings at Lareau. It seemed like some people wanted to work with us in part because of our venue selection!

Weekend of, Helen’s calmness was stabilizing and she was attentive to small details so we could focus on the celebration. Lareau encapsulates so much that we love about my home-state, it was the perfect locale to host friends and family who visited Vermont for the occasion.

Our wedding was, quite simply, an exquisite weekend that we will cherish for a lifetime. Of all the decisions we made leading up to our wedding day (about 4,000), Lareau is the one we would make over and over again.

The Best Venue

January 3, 2024

Book Lareau Farm immediately if it’s available for your wedding date. It is truly the best venue in Vermont. Not only do you get the most beautiful spaces for your ceremony and reception, incredible food, and a wonderful place to stay, but you also get to work with an absolutely spectacular team. Helen is a godsend in preparing for your wedding, the inn staff will make you and guests feel like family from the moment you arrive, and the catering team is top notch. All of them worked with us to create a wedding weekend that felt not only a wonderful celebration of our love but an incredible event for all our guests as well. It has been 4+ months and we’re still having people rave about how wonderful the venue and the food were.

As an out-of-state couple, planning a VT wedding was an extra challenge. But between Helen’s patience on countless planning calls, the Happy Couples visit weekend (seriously, what an incredible event), and the staff in general, we were able to plan and host the wedding of our dreams. One that highlighted the natural beauty, bounty, and people of Vermont in the most spectacular way for so many of our guests who had never been before. We’ll always be grateful to Lareau and cannot recommend it enough.

A Pizza Garden Party - Everything I dreamed of!

July 18, 2023

Beautiful setting! – Lareau was truly the perfect setting for our wedding celebration. The property is beautiful on its own, but with a little dressing up, it’s breathtaking. We hosted a garden party with lawn games and whimsical buntings hung throughout. It was everything I had imagined it would be.

Entirely yours for the weekend – Having our family and close friends stay at the Inn with us was such a special component of our weekend. The proximity and coziness of the Inn allowed us to make memories that wouldn’t have occurred had everyone stayed elsewhere. The breakfast was also absolutely delicious!

Incredible staff – Helen and the LFI staff are amazing. I truly didn’t have to worry about anything the whole weekend. Even leading up to the wedding Helen was incredibly responsive and helpful in every aspect of wedding planning.

PIZZA – This flatbread can’t be beat – even guests who were a bit skeptical of serving pizza at a wedding were raving about how delicious it is. Luckily we live close by and can return often for more. 🙂

Thank you, Lareau! I will forever smile thinking about our wedding celebration and weekend there.
