    We had to cancel our wedding at Lareau due to COVID and I am still writing a review because they are just that wonderful!

    Lareau itself is an absolutely stunning wedding venue if you are looking for a classic Vermont backdrop for your wedding. My husband and I worked with Helen and her team at Lareau for almost 3 years due to a long engagement + a year of pandemic delays and we were just blown away by their flexibility, accommodation and support through it all. They were by far the most helpful and empathetic vendor we worked with. In the end we made the decision to hold a small family wedding at home instead (ugh, Covid!) but Lareau will always have such a special place in our hearts.

    Wedding Venue of your Dreams

    It was so hard to begin to write this review because we have a book of amazing things to say about Lareau Farm.


    Being from Connecticut, my Husband and I accidentally found Lareau Farm Inn and fell in love with both the location and the staff. From the second we met Helen for our tour of the venue, she remained extremely helpful and easy to contact.

    What immediately grabbed our attention about this venue is that you can stay at the Inn for the weekend with your family and close friends. This was such a special weekend for us, we were surrounded by our bridal party and our direct families from Thursday to Monday.

    The Inn has beautiful land to walk around, a creek to swim in, and my younger sisters loved walking around to see the flowers. Even better, the breakfast at the Inn was delicious every single day
    (we say it is the best french toast we have ever had). Helen and the team at the Farm were accommodating with all of the ideas that we had.

    On Thursday we held an outdoor yoga class on the grounds of the Inn- it was peaceful and everyone had so much fun. We decided to have rehearsal dinner at the Historic Red Barn and it
    was beautiful. Helen has so much attention to detail, tables and decorations were spot on to what we had imagined. We opted for the American Flatbread at rehearsal dinner and our guests say it
    was the best flatbread they have ever had ( we even ordered extra later that night!).

    The best part about our wedding morning was that we had no worries because we knew that Helen and the team had everything under control. I was so calm, cool, and collected, on the wedding day morning and it was all due to everyone making the process so easy. As a bride who had every little detail planned out, Helen was able to place every decoration perfectly just by following little sticky notes I had left her. Helen was great at contacting our vendors and keeping everything going smoothly. We decided to have a food buffet for dinner, and we still have our guests talking about how good the dinner was, “ the best wedding food ever”, as they say. I think we went up for thirds at one point!

    One of our favorite parts of the night was sitting around the fire after our Reception, having s'mores , and watching the stars. Another plus of the venue location is that there are no street lights around, so star watching is spectacular. There was not one thing throughout our entire wedding weekend that went wrong, and nothing we would change. The venue is so beautiful, it makes for perfect pictures no matter where you are. If you are looking for a venue that is laid back, naturally beautiful, has delicious
    and fresh food, and kind staff, then LF is your place. A month after our wedding the farm surprised us with a painting of my bouquet as a gift- just another instance where they are so thoughtful! There is nothing better than enjoying coffee on the porch and the company of everyone you love on the day you get married. I wish we could give this venue more than 5 stars because they deserve it.

    A huge thank you to Helen, again, and the team at Lareau Farm,
    Colby & Taylor Nolan
