WEDDING CEREMONIES & RECEPTIONS

The views from our wedding hilltop are as pristine and endless as they were when railroad tycoon Albert Gilbert built the Wilburton as his gentleman's farm in 1902.  You will be the king and the queen of the castle for your celebration at this breathtaking location.

Ceremony Configurations


Every wedding is customized for each bride and groom.

Choose an outdoor ceremony on the grand lawn or the marble hilltop overlook.

Ceremonies can also be held year round in our living room and under the awning terrace on our grand veranda. We've even had some couples brave a winter outdoor wedding!

Chairs can be set up with theatre style seating facing the mountains or mansion or set up in a circle like a ring of love.

 

Wedding Tents

 

If you would like to have your wedding reception celebration under a tent, there are many options. 

Tents can be set up directly beneath the marble stairs of the Wilburton mansion on the wedding lawn, or on the blacktop behind the pool on the estate. Tents may also be set up at our guest houses on the estate for smaller celebrations.

We are happy to facilitate additional add-ons including smaller tents for shade, dance floors, and lighting.

Celebrations


Dance, drink, dine and celebrate your new married lives together!

Enjoy a cocktail wedding reception on our marble terrace, sunken garden, and grand wedding lawns.

Dance the night away on the lawn or under the awning on the terrace.

We are happy to recommend DJs, live bands, classical musicians for the ceremony and bluegrass bands for those wanting an authentic Vermont sound.  Though all outdoor music at venues in Manchester must conclude by 11:00pm, the party can continue with a blazing bonfire or mansion after party till 2:00am!
