Let Our Village Host Your Wedding
You Bring the Couple - We'll Do the Rest!
For couples who prefer a grander affair, our all-inclusive "Let Our Village Host Your Wedding" event is ideal.
Imagine a true Vermont wedding in an historic white church, followed by a processional or horse-drawn carriage ride through the center of town, the streets lined with your guests. You arrive at our front door and proceed to a rolicking and fun reception designed just as you've envisioned.
Focusing on weddings for anywhere from 25 to 75 guests, this wedding celebration provides everything you will want for your destination wedding in northern Vermont, including:
- The Vermont Marriage License, and officiant fees
- Nine “Welcome Baskets” for guests staying at the Phineas Swann made up of locally made products
- Wedding Ceremony under our wedding arch in our gardens
- Flowers from a local florist who grows the flowers in her gardens. Flowers will be provided for the Wedding Ceremony (Bridal Bouquets, Boutonnieres, etc,), and the Garden Party Reception
- A delicious Wedding Cake
- Three nights stay in our Honeymoon Suite for the wedding couple
- Full country Breakfast each morning for all guests staying at the Phineas Swann
- Wedding planning services from our experienced wedding planner and staff
Designed to offer you plenty of options (so you can choose those parts of your wedding celebration that you want while leaving out the aspects that you don't), our flexible wedding event can be customized to include:
- Rehearsal Dinner for up to 32 Guests, prepared and served at The Phineas Swann
- Garden Party 'Champagne Hour' hosted by The Phineas Swann in our gardens or in our Main Inn during winter
- Wedding Reception Dinner hosted under our enormous walled and windowed wedding tent among our extensive gardens or, depending on the number of guests, in our Main Inn
Pricing and details can be obtained by calling us at (802) 326-4306 and ask for Lynne, our wedding coordinator.
Renting the Entire Inn for Your Celebration
At the Phineas Swann, we take great pride in offering our guests (and yours!) the best hospitality experience possible. For this reason, when a couple books our "Let Our Village Host Your Wedding" event with a guest list of 25 or more people, we ask that the entire inn (9 rooms and suites) be rented by the wedding couple and their guests. This will allow us to devote all of our attention to your needs and the needs of your guests during your momentous occasion. It also ensures that you and your guests enjoy a private celebration at the inn.
Couples who reserve our "Just the Ten of Us" and "Two True" packages, or our "Let Our Village Host Your Wedding" event with fewer than 25 people, are not required to rent the entire inn. However, for the comfort of your guests (in the case of the "Just the Ten of Us" celebration), you may wish to do so. Full inn rentals, if available, merit a 10 percent discount on room rates with no black out dates.
