If “setting” is high on your list in importance for your upcoming wedding, consider Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, Vermont. Set on the shores of a pristine lake surrounded by natural beauty, the Lake Morey Resort offers the perfect backdrop for your fairytale wedding. By day, you and your guests can take advantage of all the resort amenities, and by night, relax to the call of the loons under starlit skies.
If you haven’t considered a destination wedding, discovering everything Lake Morey Resort offers might convince you. Destination weddings tend to be multi-day affairs for the wedding couple and their guests. What better place for a mini-vacation than a resort that offers a multitude of activities including an 18-hole golf course? Even in winter, outdoor activities abound with ice skating, sledding, sleigh rides, and more. The resort’s wedding planners will help you organize group activities like a golf tournament or a fishing excursion for your guests.
Of course, the perfect wedding depends upon more than keeping your guests busy before the ceremony. Lake Morey Resort makes planning your wedding as stress-free as possible. You will work with one of the resort’s Wedding Coordinators to make all of the many decisions like how to handle the ceremony, what the reception will include, and whether you want to add events such as a rehearsal dinner or next-day brunch.
This process generally starts with a site visit to view the various venues and begin to imagine how your wedding will look. Some decisions will be dependent on the number of guests you expect to invite. For example, at Lake Morey Resort, the Terrace Ballroom accommodates 250 and the Morey Room, 180. But the Waterlot Room has a capacity of 100 and the Edgewater Room 60. Outdoor venues offer a little more space as a rule, but do have limits. Whatever your style, from barbeques to formal dinners, the Lake Morey Resort can accommodate you.
Generally, a second site visit is arranged for a menu tasting, but all other details can be handled by phone or email. Your coordinator will even prompt you for the information that is needed in order to help you organize all the details for your perfect day.
Your wedding is beginning to take shape. The resort will provide a menu of your choice, set up, bar and wait staff. Your coordinator can give you a list of local outside vendors for services not provided by the resort – flowers, photography, even a local church if you want a traditional church wedding. Want something really special like a sleigh ride to the reception? Your coordinator will work with you to make it happen.
If a spectacular setting, elegant function rooms, classically trained chefs, breathtaking formal gardens, and professional staff sound like your formula for the perfect fairytale wedding, the Lake Morey Resort can deliver. Keep in mind, you will want to reserve a date a year to a year and a half out. For more popular dates (June, September, October), even more time is advisable. In addition, if you anticipate a large number of guests, and therefore a large number of guest rooms, you will need to allow more time to assure availability.
