Start your new life off in Vermont Style! From the ceremony to the wedding cake for two, we will help you create your wedding weekend memories!
Well, have you? If you haven't, you should! We have a special package...
The Village was considered the "Gretna Green" of New England at the turn of the 19th Century, when hundreds of couples boarded the New York trains and came to this little hamlet in Vermont because it did not require a marriage license waiting period, in much the same way that England saw many "quick" marriages as couples went to Gretna Green in Scotland to tie the knot, or not! It is still pretty exciting.
There is no waiting period in the state of Vermont. You can get up in the morning, propose to the love of your life, and be married by evening. Done!
The town offices are open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and you can get your marriage license there in just a few minutes. And, your innkeeper Dorothy can actually perform the ceremony for you! No fuss.
In nice weather, the gazebo is a popular spot for these impromptu ceremonies. In the winter, the Great Hall or Library serves as a pleasant background for the exchange of vows. We even have some sample vows for you to consider.
An Important Note: In 2000, Vermont was the first state in the nation to pass a civil union law. On September 1, 2009, Vermont recognized same-sex marriage, the first state to do so by legislative vote and not court ruling. All are welcome here!
This package takes care of it all and includes a stay for two nights in a premium fireplace/Jacuzzi room, your wedding ceremony performed by Dorothy (from simple to complicated, we'll help you), a rose for the lady, a wedding cake for two, a bottle of sparkling apple cider, and dinner at a lovely local restaurant! You can have your choice of special two-course breakfast (do you love Eggs Benedict? Stuffed French Toast?)
Note: Vermont rooms and meals tax of 9% will be added to this. This is a package for the bride and groom only, no family and friends of course since this is an elopement. If you wish something larger, request a quote on a small wedding event.
Special Rate: Your wedding ceremony, two nights in a premium room, dinner at a lovely local restaurant, two mornings of two-course gourmet breakfast, a welcome bottle of local sparkling apple cider, a rose for the lady, and a wedding cake (your choice of flavor) for two. The whole package for only $700!
