What a beautiful wedding weekend!
Thank you for letting us host our wedding here this summer! We were so lucky with the weather, keeping cool with just a short shower just before the ceremony. Everything was so green, the lake crystal clear for our wedding photos, and oh the food!
The barn is a beautiful venue, with naturally colored beams and stained glass windows hanging over our party. We draped the banisters and beams with vines and placed battery pillar candles along the walls. Gail and Pecco had beautiful lighted stars already hanging from the top beams. It was magical all the way up to the fireworks at the end of the night, thanks again to another talented resident of Andover (just ask Pecco).
The gardens and field were the perfect places to hold our rehearsal dinner in the tent and setup the ceremony by the apple trees. They have a natural wood/vine arbor installed which we decorated with fresh sun flowers and greenery from the Blossom Shop (also amazing!). I can actually share what it looked like, since weddingwire used our setup for their virtual tour:
Aside from the venue being pristine, Chef Brian MacKenzie (brianmackenziecatering.c...) and AJ (Brothers House of Smoke) put on a culinary show for three days through the weekend. Everyone said this was the best wedding food ever, which was corrected to simply: the best food ever. We had smoked brisket and barbecue the first night, to gazpacho and filet the next, ending with a beautiful brunch spread.
If you are looking for the perfect New Hampshire weekend getaway or intimate wedding weekend, we highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic time at this venue for our wedding! The barn was gorgeous and didn't need much decoration besides some fresh flowers on the table. We were nice and warm despite the rain outside, and we had a blast. We used the vendors that Pecco recommended, which was a huge relief as they were all familiar with the venue.

The owners of the Highland Lake Inn have been wonderful to work with throughout the process of planning our wedding reception. The barn is beautiful and it is so nice to have some of our guests stay at the Inn. We rented houses around the lake and are putting the rest of our guests in hotels in Tilton and Concord.
Absolutely love this venue, the owners are so nice to work with and such friendly people. The caterer is amazing and everyone that works there is always working together to make sure the events are run great and there are no issues. If you are looking for an amazing Barn to have any type of event, you should truly reach out to them and go tour this venue, you will not be disappointed.
Highland Lake Inn is a beautiful place with efficient management, excellent food and all the connections you need to plan a great wedding or event.
