Durham, NH Wedding Venues, Vendors, & JP Services

Here are some great wedding venues and ceremony sites in town...

Three Chimneys Inn - I love this place for so many reasons. This is a historic site, and the old world charm is evident from the moment you enter the property. The food is great, and the staff are very accommodating and just a pleasure to work with. The grounds are incredible, and you have two beautiful gardens from which to choose to have your wedding. After the wedding, cocktail hours are held outside on the Terrace. If inside, the wonderful, fireplaced Madbury Room is just one of a number of delightful function rooms to have either a large ceremony and reception, or a small, intimate, cozy wedding. Recently, the Inn did some renovations which made it an even prettier place than it was before. To the right is the entrance to the lower garden. Some Pics: Three Chimneys Inn

Holloway Commons - Did a wedding here in September. This is a relatively new venue on the Durham Campus of the University of New Hampshire. It has a couple of function rooms. The one in which I officiated a ceremony holds about 100 guests. As far as I know, you can only have an indoor wedding here.

Sweet Trail - Was the JP for a small wedding on the trail for the first time in late March. The trail itself is about four miles long, and I can't vouch for any particular spot on the trail other than the one my couple brought me to. If you park on Longmarsh Road and head into the trail, maybe about 1 minute in there is a small trail on the right. If you follow it down about three minutes, you'll come to a lovely spot overlooking the marsh. Quiet, peaceful, serene... all of these words can be used to describe this site. It's ideal if you're trying to find an out-of-the-way, private location in nature to have your ceremony.

Unitarian Universalist Church - Officiated a ceremony here for the first time in July, 2015. The ceremony was originally scheduled to be held at Three Chimneys Inn, but it was moved inside to the church due to rain. If you're considering a church site for a wedding, this is a nice place. The wedding I did had about 120 guests, and it was standing room only, so if you want all of your guests seated for a ceremony here, your numbers most certainly have to be under 100.
