The best venue

Book Lareau Farm immediately if it’s available for your wedding date. It is truly the best venue in Vermont. Not only do you get the most beautiful spaces for your ceremony and reception, incredible food, and a wonderful place to stay, but you also get to work with an absolutely spectacular team. Helen is a godsend in preparing for your wedding, the inn staff will make you and guests feel like family from the moment you arrive, and the catering team is top notch. All of them worked with us to create a wedding weekend that felt not only a wonderful celebration of our love but an incredible event for all our guests as well. It has been 4+ months and we’re still having people rave about how wonderful the venue and the food were.
As an out-of-state couple, planning a VT wedding was an extra challenge. But between Helen’s patience on countless planning calls, the Happy Couples visit weekend (seriously, what an incredible event), and the staff in general, we were able to plan and host the wedding of our dreams. One that highlighted the natural beauty, bounty, and people of Vermont in the most spectacular way for so many of our guests who had never been before. We’ll always be grateful to Lareau and cannot recommend it enough.

We simply cannot rave enough.

The setting is sublime, the food shows off the best of Vermont, and the staff make you feel at home while also setting the stage for a momentous celebration.
Weddings at Lareau are a well-oiled machine. What they do has been developed over many years and works seamlessly. This inspired so much confidence in us from the very first time we visited through the last week-of check in. Simultaneously, there was also plenty of room for creativity to make our day special. Helen was a great collaborator who kept us ahead of schedule so we didn't get stressed. She really listened to our vision and was ready to go the extra mile when we had an idea, or be open if it might not work and offer alternate suggestions. Helen was also so helpful when it came to our other vendors, who often gushed about past experiences doing weddings at Lareau. It seemed like some people wanted to work with us in part because of our venue selection!
Weekend of, Helen's calmness was stabilizing and she was attentive to small details so we could focus on the celebration. Lareau encapsulates so much that we love about my home-state, it was the perfect locale to host friends and family who visited Vermont for the occasion.
Our wedding was, quite simply, an exquisite weekend that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Of all the decisions we made leading up to our wedding day (about 4,000), Lareau is the one we would make over and over again.

Beyond amazing!

We were looking for a venue to show off Vermont and all its charm but also a fun space to party with all our family and friends. Lareau Farm & Inn hit all our checkboxes and after viewing it in a foot of snow in December we knew it was going to the venue to beat. It was an obvious choice for us and man are we so happy we went with Lareau Farm. 90% of our guests were coming from out of state and most had never been to a wedding that was 100% outside they all are sold now and have told us how stunning the venue was. For me as soon as I saw the ceremony site I fell hard, for my husband it was the fact of having the whole wedding party stay at the Inn at the venue and sitting out on the back porch each night and keeping the party going at the fire pit after. But the food was also amazing. Both the night of the wedding but every morning at the Inn. We added the paella as an entree in addition to the flatbread selection and it was a major hit. We knew the food would be amazing though after meeting with Andrew the head chef and hearing the way he talked about food. He was so passionate and people who love their job that much are always the best at what they do. I couldn't leave a raving review for Lareau farm though without touching on Helen the coordinator. I'm an interior designer who had a lot of grand idea's for my wedding and Helen had my back on every single decision. She put up with all my emails and crazy idea's and spoke up with her expertise with some amazing suggestions but any crazy idea's I had she executed exactly to what I had envisioned. Our wedding was everything I had dreamed of and none of that would have been possible without the beautiful and perfect venue and the help from Helen and the rest of the staff. I cant recommend Lareau farm enough! So many people (including some of our vendors) told us that Lareau farm is their favorite venue in Vermont and I couldn't agree more.
