I am engaged. We were planning on a Spring/Summer 2014 wedding date but as time went on and my best friend announced her wedding date of September 6, 2015, we decided to push our date to 2015. With that being said, as time goes on I don’t want to wait, but we will see. With all that we have going on in our personal lives we have yet to take time to check out anything to do with weddings. That makes me sad. I wanted to enjoy the excitement and joy of searching around for New Hampshire wedding venues, to compile a guest list and to really just have fun with the cheap wedding planning part of things. This past week was a rough one for me, so I thought looking up some pretty wedding venues in New Hampshire would make me smile.
Here are a few venues in New Hampshire that I would just love to be married at ….
Whitney’s Inn – Jackson, NH
Whitney’s Inn in Jackson, NH looks like the perfect escape for a wedding party. They have a rustic appeal in my opinion which is something that speaks for my simple, laid back, country style personality. I could see this place speaking to us on our level, nothing too ritzy yet still elegant. Taken from the website “its unique post and beam barn, the Shovel Handle Pub, and beautiful 12 acres at the base of Black Mountain, provide the perfect setting for groups of 125 or less. The inn can also host outdoor tent weddings for groups of 200 or less.” I love how this one place has multiple location options for your special day!
Alyson’s Orchard – Walpole, NH
If you can’t get married on your family’s farm, why not check out Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH. I think this location would be perfect during peak apple season, why? What a smell those ripe, sweet apples would give off naturally for your special day. I love the idea of an outdoor wedding because I love nature. I love the wind blowing in my hair on a hot Summer day, I love smelling the scent of flowers and all the aromas being outside in Spring, Summer and Fall bring. Taken from the website “with three unique, welcoming lodging facilities, a reception hall for up to 250 guests, and over 25 years of experience in the wedding industry, Alyson’s Orchard is renowned as one of New England’s finest destination wedding sites.” Again, I see a place that offers a wide range of activities alongside simply having your wedding ceremony there.
Searles Castle at Windham in Windham, NH
The Searles Castle at Windham is really a princess dream come true, while I never spent much time thinking about a princess style wedding event, I certainly started to lean that way after visiting this website. What a memorable event we could have with our wedding if we decided upon Searles Castle at Windham. What bride wouldn’t want to have one of these three entrance options; arrive by Limousine, a Cinderella Carriage or through the Castle’s Windsor doors?! I would totally feel like this princess who is indeed marrying her prince. I think this would be the most elegant of wedding ceremonies to choose from. They help you with the planning from start to finish and have many package options available for you to choose from.
Overall, I think my dream wedding would be at the Searles Castle in Windham because it’s not something we would get to experience every day. I can experience the rustic wonder of our great outdoors and the apple orchards most any day of the warm weather season, but to be married in a place that is a castle? Well now, that does sounds like the chance of a lifetime!
Out of the three venues I have shared from New Hampshire, which one would appeal most to you?
