Trend setting brides and grooms are seizing the bed & breakfast and country inn settings so they can treat their guests to unforgettable wedding events. The 12 inns selected by iLoveInns.com showcase the variety of inn styles and themes from country western hideaways and from sophisticated city venues to winter wonderlands nd tropical oceanfront paradises. B&Bs also offer as much privacy and seclusion a couple would like, unlike many large hotels and resorts with vacationers milling about.
Three Benefits for Marrying at a Bed & Breakfast or Country Inn:
1. Innkeepers give it their all to arrange an unforgettable wedding – Couples don’t have to worry about the details. Innkeepers and their wedding planning staff make sure that their every wish and more is attended to.
2. Couples can find a B&B to fit their budget – When considering all of the expenses that go into a wedding, a bed and breakfast is an excellent value. Most innkeepers will work with whatever a couple’s budget is (within reason), giving them affordable lifelong memories.
3. There’s no such thing as a cookie-cutter wedding at a B&B– Innkeepers pride themselves on creating unique events that fit the personality of each couple. Couples can take advantage of the individuality of the property they choose whether it be a mansion in the city or a villa in the country on 100 acres.
“We design a custom event, tailored to the bride and groom’s specific needs,” said Fleur-de-Lys Mansion innkeeper Kathryn Leep. “They are surrounded by the beauty and luxury of our 7,000–square foot, turn-of-the-century mansion and dine on incredible cuisine.”
The Albion River Inn in Albion, California sits atop a cliff overlooking the ocean. Its beauty is matched by the excellence of the inn’s acclaimed cuisine and award-winning wine list, lodging, and staff. “We offer full service wedding planning and staff so the bride and groom can relax knowing that every detail will be taken care of and that their wedding will be a magical event,” said innkeeper Pat Turrigiano.
Newly married Mike and Ginessa Pierson were amazed at the Albion River Inn’s handling of their wedding. “It was wonderful not having to worry about anything and trusting that everything was being taken care of,” said Mike. “Our wedding was everything we dreamed of!”
Christopher Place of Newport, Tennessee is an intimate resort that offers storybook events indoors or outdoors surrounded by the Smoky Mountains. Innkeeper Marston Price has created two wedding packages including “Wedding of a LIFETIME WEDDING Package” and “An Affair-For-Two” designed for mid-sized groups. The latter package allows for the bridal party to take over the entire facility for two nights. “This allows for them to experience a four-diamond inn with southern hospitality, elegance, and romance as if the property was their own,” said Price
The Ho’olio House in Lahaina, Hawaii offers a panoramic view of the blue Pacific Ocean and surrounding islands. Bali-style accommodations satisfy those looking for a “destination wedding” escape. Ho’olio House innkeepers offer wedding packages for elopers or for groups of up to 25.
