Host Your Unique Wedding at a Barn, Museum, or Riverboat

It’s easy to choose a truly unusual and unique wedding venue in New England – a place of many interesting nooks and quirks. In Connecticut, for instance, you could speak your vows and host an unforgettable party on a Mississippi-style riverboat or a 1920s-era dinner train moving along the Connecticut River. Vermont has a special fondness for restored barns. A bridal dance with strings of lights dipping from the barn rafters is a sweet experience. Imagine the first bridal dance at a vineyard, an art museum, an island off the coast of Maine, and green field overlooking distant mountain peaks. All these unique wedding settings are staffed by hosts who can help bring every practical need – catering, transportation, guest lodging – to a perfect conclusion.

Individual touches make this resort by the beach a standout for weddings

The difference is in the details when you choose the Winnetu Oceanside Resort, at South Beach on Martha’s Vineyard, as your wedding venue. Just 250 yards from the Island’s most popular beach, our resort can host wedding ceremonies either directly on the Atlantic Ocean or in a variety of indoor venues. For your rehearsal dinner, consider an outdoor, tented clambake followed by lawn games and s’mores or our new, indoor venue upstairs at our Dunes restaurant. For your reception, choose an indoor/outdoor combination in The Dunes and on our ocean-view terrace. Wedding parties can be transported around the resort or to churches in-town in our antique vehicle or fire engine! Our dedicated wedding and events manager and Winnetu Team will help your put your individual stamp on everything from menus to lighting and flower arrangements.
