Fantastic!!

Boar鈥檚 Head was the perfect place to host our wedding! I loved that you could host your entire wedding weekend at Boar鈥檚 Head and there are so many great options for each event, depending on the weather and number of guests. The grounds are stunning and we had so many great options for photography as well. We initially planned on an indoor ceremony since March is so unpredictable, but the weather ended up being perfect and they were able to flawlessly move the ceremony outside to the Greens with just a day鈥檚 notice. We had our reception in the Pavilion and it was so elegant and allowed for the perfect flow for our cocktail hour and dinner. We had the pleasure of working with Lauren Wallis as our wedding coordinator and she truly went above and beyond. We were in constant contact the year leading up to our wedding and she was able to accommodate all of our requests, down to the type of glassware for our signature drinks! Most of our guests stayed at the Boar鈥檚 Head and they absolutely loved the rooms, amenities, and the restaurant and bar at the inn. The hors d鈥檕euvres and dinner were excellent on our wedding- our guests loved the food and open bar. The bartenders and waitstaff were also so professional. We had such a great experience with Boar鈥檚 Head throughout the planning process and thought the weekend was truly perfect. Thank you Boar鈥檚 Head!

Consultation/Booking Process

My fianc茅 and I dropped in to see Boar鈥檚 Head after seeing another venue. We like it so much I brought my mom back the following weekend, and by the end of the day, we knew it was the place for us! It blended my fianc茅 and mine鈥檚 styles perfectly, and there were so many options for how we wanted to get ready the day of, set up our reception, and additional activities for us and our guests. I am especially looking forward to using the on-site spa to relax prior to our wedding! Rebecca provided us with so much quality information, and put us at ease with the process, which can seem overwhelming at times. Absolutely go check them out!!

We are so happy we picked the Boar's Head for our wedding venue. We held our rehearsal dinner in the Ednam Room and our reception was in the Pavilion Grand Ballroom. Esme Pitard was such a pleasure to work with, throughout the entire year leading up to the wedding, and during the entire weekend. She was very organized and kept us on track with planning. We had an amazing tasting about a month before, tasting 3 full entrees, several hors' d'oeuvres, and then such a fantastic cake tasting display. The Boar's Head is a fantastic venue because you can get so much in one place. The rooms were beautiful with a southern charm, not to mention balconies or patios on every room. There are several options for rehearsal dinner and receptions depending on the size of your party. The Ednam Room had a nice outdoor courtyard which was nice for Friday night. The Pavilion has a beautiful prefunction space and the ballroom is just as it's labeled: "grand." We went to the "Racquets Restaurant" for the after party both nights which had a nice patio with fire pits. We also had several options for pictures before and after the ceremony- some backdrops included flowers, willow trees, the lake, brick walkways, and even the rooms and hallways. We had good experiences with all of the staff, and especially want to thank Esme. Best day of our lives!
