Dear Karen and Blithewold team,
My husband, Nick and I celebrated our wedding Sunday 6/1/14 at Blithewold- our day was absolutely PERFECT and we have Blithewold to thank.
From the moment we laid eyes on Blithewold we fell in love. Karen, our introductory meeting with you was wonderful and when we were presented with the option of having our wedding day on the 100th year wedding anniversary of Marjorie and George- we were truly honored and speechless. Choosing Blithewold as the site of wedding ceremony and reception was a no-brainer.
Karen, through the months leading up to our wedding, you were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. You always made yourself available and no detail was too small to discuss. You made our ideas a reality.
Our wedding day was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! The gardens were meticulous and full of color, the mansion was beautiful, and we are truly grateful for the access to the 100th year exhibit with Marjorie’s wedding dress, that is an experience we will never forget.
We were impressed with the poise and communication of you and Cara and the Blithewold staff during our wedding. Every detail was perfect. Our guests were so impressed and appreciative of being a part of our special day and Blithewold history-they said they had never been to such a beautiful and perfect wedding! And what a perfect sunset over the water!
Nick and I are beyond happy with our wedding day and total experience with Blithewold- it was truly perfect. We cannot wait to visit again!

Learn something new — on fertilization
(Jan 23, '15)
When we get busy I’m apt to forget my quest to learn something new every day. But during the winter we have the time and plenty of opportunities in the way of classes, lectures, symposiums, trade and garden shows to make a habit of it again. And it’s a treat whether I’m learning something totally […]
What to do when it’s January-ish
(Jan 16, '15)
So far, to me, this winter has not seemed as winter-ish as winter usually is. Of course, I’m knocking wood as I say that. Although I love the way a good layer of snow blankets the landscape (and insulates our plants), I’m grateful to not have to shovel or trudge over and through giant banks […]

A lot of people ask us what we do here in the winter. –A particularly legitimate question when the weather outside is as unpleasant as it has been this week as temperatures plunged and the wind whipped. We always answer, “a lot.” And luckily for Gail, Betsy, and me, most of it is inside-work. Holidays behind […]
