Something Blue

From sprawling lakes to rustic rivers, New England’s gorgeous waterways are the perfect wedding backdrop.

River

Riverside Farm
Pittsfield, Vermont

If your heart is set on a rustic wedding, look no further than Riverside Farm, which boasts a sprawling wonderland of hills and dells alongside the Tweed River. Host your event in the turn-of-the-century post-and-beam Red Barn (with room for 130 seated or 200 standing guests); the massive Stonewell Barn, attached to a covered bridge (with room for 200 or more guests); or the property’s 40-acre meadow, which can fit 500 guests and features a “Kissing Tree” that overlooks the Green Mountains. Adventurous revelers can enjoy day-after whitewater rafting or tubing trips, while landlubbers can take on the state’s famed cheese trail—Plymouth Artisan and Crowley cheesemakers are both nearby.
