Enjoy the outdoor sparkle and the in-house firelight at a glorious winter wedding

A winter wedding in New England wraps up the best features and feelings of the season. Sparkling snow and icicles light up the outdoors, while roaring fireplaces, candlelit tables and rooms, and sometimes the lingering holiday decorations brighten the indoors. New England’s mountain, countryside and seaside resorts and lodgings are ideal for a cozy winter wedding. Although winter weddings are becoming more popular, it is still an uncrowded season in most of New England. The bridal couple can get advice and direction from in-house planners at resorts, and guests can enjoy lush ballrooms and guest rooms, spa services, nice extras like horse-drawn sleigh rides in some places, and chef-inspired dining.
