A Wedding at a Country House in the Berkshires

When I met with Jen and Katie, the recurring "theme" of their "dream wedding" was that their guests felt welcome and taken care of throughout the entire weekend.  They wanted to create an intimate setting where they could spend the most important day of their lives with the most special people in their lives.  And despite the chilly temps and light drizzle of the late September day, the warmth of this group was what stood out the most.

A May Wedding at Camp Lenox in the Berkshires

Many of the weddings that I do in the Berkshires are Jewish weddings; however, Brenne and Eli's wedding taught me more about a traditional Jewish wedding than I ever could have imagined (in fact, I even had "Jewish Wedding 101" classes with Eli's mom, Adina)!  It isn't only about having a Chuppah or a Ketubah signing (although those are certainly parts of it), but it's also about the amazing events leading up to the ceremony--the very special Tish and Bedeken.  It's about gathering your friends and family for Shabbat and Davening services, about the true meaning behind the Yichud (whoa!) and the boisterous Shomrim (wait, what?!), the breaking of the (Challah) bread and the ties that bind.  It's about family. And love.  And true commitment.

A Lenox Wedding at The Mount

As a wedding planner in the Berkshires, I constantly count my lucky stars that I live in such a unique area, surrounded by natural beauty and filled with a rich cultural and historical presence.  And one of my favorite estates--even before I started planning weddings in Lenox--is Edith Wharton's stunning home, The Mount.  So when I received a call from Kathy (who grew up in the Berkshires but now lives in San Francisco) telling me she and Rusty wanted to host their wedding at this grand mansion, I was thrilled!
