TIE THE KNOT IN MT WASHINGTON VALLEY, NH

North Conway, NH – Not only has Mt Washington Valley been named as a fabulous ski destination, also offering one of the country’s prettiest Main Streets, it’s also a popular place to say, “I do”. Couples dreaming of everything from a barn wedding to an adventure elopement will find not only venues but a wide assortment of other businesses to provide everything from flowers to cakes to photography and more.  Visit the Weddings in Mt Washington Valley directory for a complete list of everything you’ll need to plan the perfect wedding in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.  Let’s take a look at some of the more unusual venues and services that make for unique weddings and elopements in the Valley.

From B&Bs to Barns and Berms to Boats

Whether you seek an indoor or outdoor location, B&B or Barn, you’ll find options in Mt Washington Valley.  Consider Hardy Farm, designed exclusively as a wedding and event venue with sprawling lawns, a beautifully restored barn and inn accommodations.  Likewise, the Preserve at Chocorua offers up another barn setting along with a farmhouse, Spa House, and cottages plus grounds with everything from a firepit to pickleball.

Sometimes brides prefer a larger, more formal venue, like The Wentworth, An Elegant Inn in Jackson, with both tented and indoor event space plus beautiful and romantic accommodations, and a bridal suite fit for a king and queen too.  The nearby Eagle Mountain House and Golf Course also offer barn or tented options for wedding receptions and indoor or outdoor ceremony space too.  The Attitash Grand Summit Hotel & Conference Center, the White Mountain Hotel & Resort and Purity Spring Resort are three other options offering wedding space and accommodations for 100+ weddings too.  Two former Grand Hotels including the Mountain View Grand Resort & Spa and the Omni Mount Washington Resort, specialize in luxury weddings and offer varied settings for larger weddings.  And for those with a zest for much more casual and outdoor-oriented weddings, consider World Fellowship Center or the AMC Highland Lodge.

When it comes to smaller weddings and elopements, Mt Washington Valley’s inns and B&Bs are well equipped with packages for everything from destination weddings to wedding proposals.  Both the Notchland Inn and the Snowvillage Inn are popular small destination wedding venues, offering both tented reception space and accommodations.  And both these inns, along with B&Bs like The Bernerhof Inn, Riverside Inn B&B, the Bartlett Inn and Stonehurst Manor specialize in very small weddings and White Mountain elopements.

Looking for something with a little extra adventure?  How about an elopement aboard a horse drawn carriage or sleigh from Farm by the River B&B with Stables with Cranmore Mountain Resort as your backdrop? Redline Guiding performs mountaintop wedding services. One of their senior guides is also a NH Justice of the Peace and will perform mountain-top and wilderness wedding services. Or request a private charter on Black Ghost Boat Cruises, and enjoy a small sunset elopement for up to 8 people on Conway Lake.

For a highly personalized wedding experience - by a river or your favorite waterfall - Kim, the JP is happy to perform wedding ceremonies in any accessible location. Additionally, Mary Seavey, NH Justice of the Peace, is available to perform Marriage Ceremonies, Commitment Ceremonies, Elopements and vow renewals in Mt Washington Valley too.  

Additional wedding services

From JPs to salons, you’ll find just what you need to create the most memorable wedding.  Philbrick Photography is a husband-wife team who are not afraid to go out on a ledge, quite literally, to get the most dramatic wedding shots. Their cliff-top photos add that element of adventure endemic in the White Mountains.  They recently photographed a rock-climbing couple who scaled Cathedral Ledge to get to their mountain top wedding. Joe Martin Photography will capture the personality of the couple in everything from serious portrait to clever and whimsical shots, according to the wishes of the couple.
