Here are some great wedding venues in town:
- This is a very picturesque location for a ceremony. There are three different gardens that serve as ceremony sites. I officiated a ceremony here a couple of summers ago in the garden on Cobbetts Pond that featured a butterfly release. Usually, butterfly releases go smoothly and can be a highlight for a wedding. Unfortunetly, for the couple and the butterflies, this one did not go as well. The butterflies were located in a box behind me, in direct exposure to a stiff wind off the Pond. Despite the best efforts of the staff, and myself, their box kept getting blown over. By the time it was ready to release them, instead of flying out of the box, the butterflies crawled out (probably because they were punch drunk). I felt bad for them and stuck around after the ceremony trying to help them fly off. Another ceremony I remember here was for a Bosnian couple where they had me say a few words in Bosnian at the end of the wedding. From the reaction of the mostly Bosnian crowd, I think I did ok with the pronunciation!
- There are many beautiful wedding venues in our area, but this one is unique. I love performing ceremonies as a JP here because it is a one-of-a-kind venue. It is literally a castle, in the style of castles you'd find in Old England. Sean and Scott are the venue coordinators, and they do a superb job organizing the ceremonies and making sure everything goes according to plan.
•The Common Man
- Have had the pleasure of being the Justice of the Peace for just one ceremony here. It was in a smallish, very rustic room. The staff were very accommodating. As I recall, it was a Christian ceremony that featured the Lord's Prayer. I'm not sure if they have a room for a larger wedding, and I can't speak for other Common Man Restaurants in the area but, certainly, if you're having a small ceremony, and you're looking for rustic, the Common Man in Windham is a very nice venue.
