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!

Thank you!

Best,

Leanne and Nick Szwaja

This week, once again, the rain and a woolly nor’easter held off just long enough for […]

Essentially, they are pulling different natural features from throughout the Grounds, preserving […]
  • A rabbit’s eye view with Noel Kingsbury (Oct 17, '14)
    We are so lucky that yesterday’s rain held off just long enough to take a ground-level tour of Blithewold’s gardens with British garden designer/plantsman/author, Noel Kingsbury. He showed us, plant by plant, exactly what to look for to help predict how different plants will behave in our gardens. He reminded us that plant growth falls along […]
