    Absolutely Perfect

    We had a small wedding at the Fontainebleau in early August. While we were anxious about keeping everyone safe throughout, I can honestly say that our wedding was perfect—in large part because of the Fontainebleau’s beautiful grounds and because of Terri and John’s support, flexibility, creativity, and experience. Our wedding would not have been as beautiful, as meaningful, and as fun—all while observing social distancing, mask-wearing, the no dance floor regulations, etc. for COVID—had it not been for Terri, John, and their stunning Inn.
    If you are hoping to go forward with your wedding during COVID, this is the place to do it (and also during non-COVID times too, of course!). The lakeside setting feels like a movie set, and the elegant simplicity of the Inn is comforting while also making for a stunning backdrop for photos. Everything can be done outside here: the lawn offered us ample space to spread out during the ceremony and during the reception; the covered patio offered enough space to socially distance a group of 30-odd guests. The Inn was a respite from the anxiety of the world, and it offered us a chance, as immediate family (after quarantining beforehand!), to gather together for a few days to celebrate our wedding but also the company of each other. We’re far enough out now from the wedding to know that we were able to keep everyone safe thanks to the ample outdoor space offered at the Fontainebleau.
    I wish I could adequately capture the amount of appreciation, admiration, and gratitude that I have for Terri and John. Terri was with me every step of the way—from the moment things looked bad due to COVID, to the postponement of our initial wedding day, to the rescheduling, to figuring out how to meet regulations and keep everyone safe. I truly could not have done this without her continuous willingness to field questions and offer suggestions.
    In sum, I am so glad that we celebrated our wedding at the Fontainebleau. If you are planning or hoping to go forward with your wedding during COVID, my advice to you is to be flexible, be kind, be laid back, and to be grateful for any wedding you can squeak out during this time. With that approach and by being at the Fontainebleau, you will have an absolutely stunning, memorable, dream-like wedding—even with masks, hand sanitizer, social distance, and 30 or so people.
    I know that my husband and I will be back to stay at the Inn at some point (hopefully soon!), and many of our family expressed the same sentiment. It is such a special place that is run by two of the most kind and beautifully human people that I have ever met. We are so happy that the Fontainebleau, Terri, and John were a part of our wedding.

    An Absolute Dream

    Stop reading this and book the Fontainebleau Inn for your wedding! I cannot say enough about how amazing this venue is! It is kind of in the middle of nowhere which only adds to its magic. With 7 guest rooms onsite we were able to stay with our entire wedding party which made the weekend that much more fun. There is also a bridal suite for getting ready the morning of. It was so convenient to have our entire day take place in the same location. The Inn itself is absolutely beautiful plus there is the lake and access to the woods which was ideal for photos. Terri & John were super nice and helpful and the daily breakfasts were delicious! We love this place so much and hope to go back for our anniversary next year! Thank you Terri & John for helping make 9/28/19 the happiest day of our lives!

    Beautiful venue

    I can not say enough positive things about this venue! The professionalism is beyond reproach. The venue is breathtaking. Terry and John are great to work with and make every little detail of your day go smoothly.
