    Vermont Wedding Dream

    We could not have picked a more perfect venue for our wedding! My husband and I live in Burlington and wanted a wedding venue that highlighted all the wonderful things we love about Vermont - Lareau Farm checked every box from the charming inn to the beautiful gardens and farm to table menu, to the tucked away ceremony site and awesome timber frame pavilion. Helen Borrelli was a dream to work with – completely on top of every detail, while also maintaining a relaxed vibe. We really appreciated all the time she spent with us leading up to the wedding so that the weekend ran smoothly. On the day of, Helen and her staff were always available when we had questions and to keep us on schedule while also giving us the space to enjoy the moment with our friends and family. Because of the Lareau Farm team, my husband and I truly felt like we got to enjoy the whole weekend stress free. We are STILL getting compliments from our guests about how much they loved everything about the venue. We would highly recommend Lareau to anyone!

    An oasis in a year of craziness

    From the first time we visited Lareau, we could feel that it is a very special place. When you live in Vermont, you get pretty used to being charmed by adorable old homes, historic barns, sprawling fields, and beautiful views. Even with us being as spoiled as all of that, Lareau struck us as a truly magical and essential “Vermont” place and we knew that we wanted to get married there.

    In what was undoubtedly the most bizarre and stressful wedding year of our generation, the incredible folks at Lareau allowed my partner and I to have a celebration that felt truly authentic to us, safe, comfortable, and festive. From the initial planning stages, to the re-planning, to the second re-planning, Helen and Dave were communicative, thorough, detail-oriented, and supremely flexible. Helen knows what she is about with wedding planning; she guided us through the process with professionalism and warmth, not missing a beat despite all of the hurdles. On our wedding day, Helen was a subtle guiding presence helping us to stay on track and on schedule with the various components of our celebration. Dave created and executed a beautiful picnic menu for us that our guests gushed about for the rest of the summer.

    We are so grateful to the both of them, and all of the other staff members at Lareau, for the way in which they make their guests feel welcome, at ease, taken care of, and at home. Lareau is such a special place, and I can’t recommend their inn and event spaces highly enough.

    The easiest, best decision we made during wedding planning

    We stumbled across Lareau Farm because my husband wanted to see if there were venues near a brewery in Vermont - and here is this one, minutes from Lawson's and they serve flatbreads! I was immediately enamored with the idea. Everyone always forgets the food they eat at weddings - and it is so expensive! But no one would forget all-you-can-eat, woodfired flatbreads.

    We visited the venue and Helen, the coordinator was helpful from the start. She was calm, organized, and kept us excited and on task with our timeline. She always responds quickly to emails, proactively provides information, and answers all questions (no matter how tiny) and offers as much guidance as you need to feel confident that the day will be perfect.

    All our vendors couldn't stop talking about how special Lareau farm, is-how couples fall in love with the place and keep coming back to visit. And it's true. It is such a special, unique experience to have the entire inn to yourself with your family for an entire weekend. The wedding goes by so fast, so those extra memories are such a gift. And with views of the Mad River and mountains, lawn space for games, and fire pits, there is something for everyone at your wedding to enjoy. The day after my wedding, my dad said, "I think I will look back on this weekend and think it was a fairytale."

    The pricing is very reasonable for all that is included. They make it so easy. And the flatbreads are truly delicious - an easy meal to eat on the go as you make your rounds. We even had people with allergies to gluten, cheese, and tomatoes and they were easily able to make it work, easily. And, if you don't want to go that route, they also have many non-pizza options that are absolutely delicious. Lareau Farm is a special place, and after hearing horror stories about how stressful wedding planning can be, it was such a gift that the team at Lareau made the entire experience so truly comfortable.
