Chesterwood is an exclusive property in storied Stockbridge, Mass. that’s custom-made for outdoor weddings of 50 to 500 guests. Nuptials can take place in your choice of several distinct locations spread over acres of scenic grounds: from a wooded glen to an Italianate piazza, or from a slate terrace to a formal flower garden. Chesterwood is the summer residence and studio of America’s foremost public sculptor, Daniel Chester French, the man who created the iconic Lincoln Memorial in Washington. Artists like French cherished the Berkshires for its panoramic vistas, fresh mountain air, and privacy. Brides love the Berkshires for country estates like this one, that accept only one wedding party at a time. Chesterwood’s sculpture studio features a broad piazza with a mountain view to the south, and a magnificent floral allée to the north. The adjacent residence features a large terrace shaded by century-old trees. In summer, wedding guests can stroll the sweeping lawn and enjoy the seasonal installation of contemporary sculptures on the grounds. Site visits available year-round; weddings begin May 1.
