Event Venues & Services

Willburton Inn, Manchester, VT

Once a year is not enough for me to play at this great venue. 10/21, it had rained all night, all day & until an hour before,  Meesha & her crew were trying to get the ceremony ‘outside’: there was no way.  With 18 tables all ‘set’, in place, they shifted the entire ‘tented space’ (marble floors, hard to call it a ‘tent’) & put the chairs in an ‘arc’ & opened the end of the tent to have the Bride & Groom & Officiant in ‘front’ of a magnificent backdrop of ‘leaf peeping quality mountains”. BRAVA, Meesha! Lovely ‘service’ folks, Dexter & Jim to support ‘logistics’ & lovely rooms to support your guest list. Can’t say enough good things!

Shot By Paris – Photographer

I worked with Paris last week at a very dynamic wedding gig & he was both personable & proactive with me re; lightings, schedule, etc.

In fact, I advised him ahead of time re: tried & true mixes/etc and advised him “You won’t want to miss this ‘song’ or ‘this mix’ & he was on it with me like a partner.

Highly advise your considering Paris for your wedding photography (and other) needs.

Great guy too…lovely to work with.

High Peaks Resort

Lake Placid is well thought of as a ‘Destination Wedding’ city: it is. And I can assure you, there’s no better venue than ‘High Peaks Resort’. With varied locations for Ceremony & Cocktail Party & Reception, it’s a fave of mine to play at & Gina Cimaglia can give you the details. Working with her & the entire staff at HPR is a pleasure. You’ll think so too!

Okemo Resort

I ski at Okemo & I’ve played weddings at Okemo (it’s right around the block for me!) & can assure you, dovetailing in a Ceremony outside or at top of Summit with the views is lovely experience. As well, their ‘Roundhouse’ is killer for Reception, as it offers two levels of space. But you can schedule more intimate ceremony/reception space in other cute spots.Great food, lovely service folks & great management. Worth looking into! Please ask for Teri Fortuna, tell her ‘Captain Bob’ sent ya!

Seesaw’s Lodge

For you folks considering Southern Vermont & the Manchester, VT area for your Wedding Ceremony + Reception, a ‘repurposed’ venue, Johnny Seesaw’s, right next to Bromley Mountain, has been lovingly restored & vastly improved & offers a gorgeous setting for a larger tented reception, as well as smaller ‘inside’ spots for your more intimate events.

Castle Hill Resort & Spa

For you folks considering Southern Vermont & Ludlow/Okemo area for your Wedding Ceremony + Reception, a great spot is the Castle Hill Resort & Spa. Why?

Blood’s Catering

So, when I speak of Blood’s Catering, here’s what I say: “When I play a Wedding they’re catering, it’s the best food I’ll have that ‘season’. No kidding. But they are also a ‘single source’ for everything incl: tents, chairs, tables, linens, silverware, plates, etc…even service staff! I mean: the whole enchilada! With 50 years in the business, they work all over NH & VT & I highly encourage you to contact Tanya Blood & make sure to mention my name!
