One of America’s foremost sculptors chose Chesterwood, this scenic and spacious landscape, for his summer residence and studio.
Daniel Chester French created The Minute Man and the seated Abe Lincoln in the Lincoln Memorial, as well as other celebrated studio works on this multi-acre estate. Artists like French loved the Berkshires for its natural beauty, panoramic vistas, and serenity. Brides love the Berkshires for country estates like this one with sweeping lawns edged by verdant woodlands and manicured swaths of European-style gardens. The sculpture studio features a shady, broad piazza facing Monument Mountain on one side, and a magnificent floral allée with a romantic arch on the other – the perfect place for a wedding ceremony.
The French’s family residence features a large terrace with views of natural foliage and contemporary sculpture installations around the grounds, a decades-long summer tradition honoring French’s well-documented support of his artistic contemporaries.
This exclusive property in storied Stockbridge, Massachusetts – which combines art, classical beauty, and a dramatic mountain backdrop – is tailor-made for memorable weddings of up to 500 guests. Brides are free to select locations on any part of the estate for their ceremony and reception.
