Tag Archives: Vendor of the Month

The vendor of the month is rated as the top resort in Massachusetts by resortsandlodges.com. The Cranwell Resort, Spa & Golf Club in Lenox, Massachusetts is right at the top of my list of favorite places to shoot a wedding year after year. The Cranwell, located in the beautiful Berkshire mountains of Massachusetts, offers an impeccable outdoor ceremony site that includes a gorgeous mountain backdrop and a stunning staircase to begin the bride’s walk down the aisle.

Every reception that I have attended at the Resort has run flawlessly, no matter if it was held inside the ballroom or outside in the tent. The ballroom boasts tall ceilings and beautiful design, which fits many different wedding sizes. The outdoor tent provides a second great option, as the Cranwell boasts one of the few sites where your reception can stay in the fresh air. And hats off to the Chef, as the sea bass is the best wedding dish I’ve tasted. The bridal suite is a generously-sized two-room layout that is ideal for a bride’s preparations. Photo options are unlimited with charming choices inside and gorgeous views and architecture outside which translates to stunning photos and a beautiful wedding film.

The vendor of the month for July is one of my favorite reception facilities in Connecticut to film a wedding at. On my most recent visits, Saint Clements Castle had it all for Meghan and Chris in April putting on a flawless wedding.

Saint Clements Castle is located along the Connecticut River and it provides several options for a wedding ceremony. In April, Meghan and Chris had their ceremony on the back lawn overlooking the river. The back lawn site has a slight down slope which makes the river backdrop even more beautiful. Ceremonies at the castle can also take place in the Sunken Garden, or indoors in the intimate Art Gallery.

The grounds at 113-year old Saint Clements Castle are beautiful with so many different areas for the photo session, which always adds so much to our wedding films. To steal a line from their website, Saint Clements has “meticulously landscaped sunken gardens, gracious courtyards and manicured lawns surrounding this classic example of French Tudor and Bavarian architecture complete with spectacular water views of the Connecticut River.” The food, whether your having stations or a sit-down dinner, is always very delicious and the service comes with the same high standards.

Meghan and Chris’s video will be up on the blog soon to add another look into this fabulous facility.
