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!
Leanne and Nick Szwaja

A Sustainable Rose Garden
(Aug 06, '15)
I freely admit that when we moved the Pollinator Garden this spring to its new location at the top of the meadow west of the vegetable garden I didn’t have high hopes for it to be a thing of beauty this year. For a couple of reasons. One, the intended location was full of nutsedge that […]

Lily has to be one of the most overused descriptors in horticulture. Go figure, given how aptly it defines so many flowers: the word itself has a trumpeting flare and and if I use my imagination, a sweet fragrance too… Spring is plenty-lily-ful with trout lily, lily of the valley, checkered lilies, and lily-flowering tulips doing their thing, but starting […]
North Garden inventory
(Jul 17, '15)
I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
