Romantic Wedding Venue with Outstanding Food?

Hi all,

My fiance and I are searching for a wedding venue in New England that also offers creative, local, and seasonal food (it's the number one priorty for our wedding). We've considered farms, vineyards, and historic properties in Vermont, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

Has anyone been to a wedding that fits this bill? Or do you know of a caterer that might be worth looking into? We're open to any and all ideas, and would greatly appreciate any input.

  1. Food was the #1 criteria at our wedding as well, and we went with East Meets West catering ( and a venue that allowed us to bring in outside food/booze. FYI, EMW only does food and recommends a great company for booze that essentially offers wholesale prices and takes back whatever you don't drink. As a package, our expense was lower than average because all the pieces were picked individually (as opposed to most venues that package everything and drive up the cost by making it an overall per person cost).

    PS. We got our cake from a different place as well, which was both yummier and cheaper.

    1. I got married at Wheatleigh, in Lenox. Fairy tale venue. Unbelievable food. High price.

      1. I attended a lovely wedding At upstairs on the Square in Harvard Sq. great space, very intimate and I liked the food- much better than most wedding fare. The Athenaeum offers its space for weddings, so perhaps you could bring a great caterer there.

          I also attended a wedding at upstairs on the Square. It was great food and an extremely unique venue- definitely requires a couple that isn't looking for the standard wedding venue/set-up. It wouldn't have been for me, but I loved everything about it for that couple.

        2. Two options in Lincoln, MA: Codman Farms and the Pierce House.

          1. My cousin had her daughter's wedding at Camp Ohana in Vermont. It might be a little more rustic than you're looking for, but it is beautiful.
