    Perfect venue for our wedding!

    My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Duportail House on 10/22/2021 and we absolutely loved it. I fell in love with the home’s historic charm from the moment I laid eyes on it, and it was such a unique and elegant venue for our day. We had about 120 guests, and so many complimented the house and how perfectly it was suited for our event. Fortunately for us, we had a picture perfect Fall day for our wedding, and the colorful foliage and sunshine only enhanced an already beautiful site. We held our cocktail hour inside the house and out on the lawn, we used the patio as our dance floor, and we had a tented dinner on the lawn. Space heaters kept everyone comfortable and everything was truly seamless. Kate was such a pleasure to work with throughout the entire planning process, and she went above and beyond to ensure that our day went off without a hitch. I highly, highly recommend booking the Duportail House for your wedding day!

    A Magical Experience!

    We hosted our wedding reception at Duportail and it was an absolutely magical experience. From first arrival, Kate led me around the beautiful historic house (which barely needs any decor - the house is a decoration itself!), showing how we could use the antique spaces for eating, dancing, and socializing. The day-of Kate was on point the entire time and helpful for whatever we needed. We had a small reception of about 40 people and everyone fit comfortably, even during COVID. The outdoor space was fresh and quiet. It was everything we could have asked for and more at an amazing price point.

    The Duportail House made my wedding dreams a reality! I absolutely loved working with Kate. She was so easy and kind. We had 140 guests at our September 2016 wedding and rented a tent for our dinner reception/dancing/stage for the band. With string lights, a 12 piece band and fans for the tent (it was VERY hot that day), there was some concern for all of the electrical work, but Kate handled everything and everything ran smoothly all night long! She also coordinated with our tent vendor (event quip) to handle the setup of the tent, stage, dance floor and lights so we didn't have to.

    We got married on the front porch and utilized the house for cocktail hour. It was nice and cool inside the house. Then we moved everything out to the tent for dinner. The flow was really nice and the house allowed plenty of room for our guests to spread out.

    Our photographer had a field day with the property for our photos. We did first look on the bridge, we did photos around the barn and walking paths, we did family photos in front of the front porch. And we didn't have to do too much in terms of flowers because the landscaping around the house is just so beautiful. For the party, there are even string lights (the big vintage looking ones) in the permanent tent over the patio. It was all so gorgeous!

    I will say the one minor con to this place is that the kitchen only has a convection oven and no stove top, so I had to rent a stove for my caterer, but that was a fairly small expense in the grand scheme of things.

    I LOVE this venue and hope to use it for future events we may have!
