Weddings at Twin Pond Retreat:

“Getting married at Twin Pond Retreat was a dream come true. From the yoga class the morning of the wedding, to the magical outdoor ceremony on the hillside, to a peaceful canoe ride moments after saying our vows, to a lantern-lit dance party that everyone from the teen-aged cousins to the great-aunts loved, to the romantic honeymoon cabin for me and my new husband, the entire experience was pure bliss! Jennifer was wonderful to work with and helped us to craft a weekend that everyone says was the best wedding they’d ever attended! We can’t wait to come back for an Anniversary retreat!” Lydia and Deorsha August 2008

“When we were contemplating wedding sites we had some much to keep in mind. Our main goals were to create a homespun, personal event that allowed our family members and friends to enjoy the beauty and culture of rural Vermont in a place that was accessible and flexible. Twin Pond Retreat struck us immediately with its beauty and peacefulness. Jennifer’s flexibility allowed us to create a wedding that was exactly what we wanted in a place where we felt at home. Our guests were incredibly happy. Everything was perfect, from the ceremony in the glorious sunshine to the late night dip in the wood-fired hot tub under the stars. Thank you Jennifer!” Valerie and Lloyd July 2008

“Twin Pond Retreat was an idyllic setting for our daughter’s June wedding. The beautiful grounds provided the perfect backdrop for both the ceremony on top of the hill and the tent reception surrounded by lupine and poppy gardens. Jennifer was wonderful to work with. She helped us with every phase of wedding planning and implementation. Initially she gave us with names of local vendors who were all professional and easy to work with. Throughout the planning phase, Jennifer was always available with answers to any questions. On the wedding weekend, she worked tirelessly to prepare and serve food to the 100 guests attending. Her vintage china and food presentation added one more touch of beauty to an already lovely day. Everyone attending the wedding had a wonderful time. Friends and family alike say they can’t remember when they had more fun at a wedding. Our day was relaxed, lovely and memorable in every way. We will always be thankful to Jennifer for providing the ideal location for our daughter’s wedding.” Sue & Tom Raatikainen, Falmouth, Maine
