11/10 all around

I do not even know where to start! Still searching for a word out there that defines as "better than perfect." There is nothing out there that even comes close to the Wilburton. The entire experience was an absolute dream. I will begin with the staff. Meesha, Tajlei, Melissa, and the entire Wilburton staff were OFF THE CHARTS. They know a thing or two about hospitality. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud, and the amenities were everything! Every room is cared for. Meesha treated myself and each and every one of my guests like family. She is an incredibly special person sent from Heaven. From inception she made the entire process seamless and not scary at all! She always made herself available to answer any questions I had. She also provided me with any, and all information I needed - so that when the wedding day came my mind was at ease. She coordinated everything with all of my vendors, so that I did not have to worry about talking to them day of the wedding. Meesha deserves an award for all of her hard work!! If you are planning on having a wedding here – don’t miss out on the rehearsal dinner and the bonfire. These two events were so special and my guests were raving about them. It is a good opportunity to welcome everyone, and they do a great job coordinating the events. The venue itself is spectacular. Having all of the guests stay on the premises was KEY, you forget something in your room – no biggie just a few steps away. It was like a big campfire sleepover with all of my favorite people. The marble steps and pavilion tent are to die for. Not to mention – BEST MOUNTAIN VIEWS IN MANCHESTER!! The food is all farm to table and is incredible. Nancy Bishop is a local florist in the area that I was so blessed to have found, she knows the venue and is a master at her craft. I have nothing but incredible things to say about the Wilburton, I could go on forever! The second you get there and see the views you will be sold - I am telling you!!!!

The absolute BEST!

Our wedding at The Wilburton was quite possibly the most wonderful and most epic weekend ever. Meesha, Tajlei, and everyone at The Wilburton made it such a pleasant and easy process and most of all, they went above and beyond to ensure we, and all of our guests had the best time. With every outlandish request we threw at them, they came back with solutions and ideas for how to make it a reality.
Meesha was so patient and such a helpful guide in the planning process. She was amazing at bringing together all the moving pieces and especially in 2022 that is a major feat! With each hiccup like rental companies not having any stock, or me ordering the wrong escort cards, etc. Meesha would brush it off, tell me it was no big deal and find a solution. I could not have done any of this without her. The unique beauty of The Wilburton is that it has a very special warm, homey, and comfortable feeling while still being a really grand and beautiful property. We filled every room for the weekend which made it feel like summer camp - everyone running around, being together and enjoying the grounds and the funky, incredible art installations. We truly had the best experience planning and hosting our wedding at The Wilburton and have spent the past week fielding texts and calls from all of our guests who loved it just as much. The whole weekend was so special. I wish I could do it all over again!!

Dream Wedding Weekend!

Our wedding weekend was an ABSOLUTE dream thanks to the Wilburton Inn! After having to reschedule, we got married over Columbus Day Weekend and everything was perfect. If you are looking for somewhere private for all of your friends and family to stay and call yours for the weekend, this is your place! From the lodging accommodations (absolutely stunning Bridal Suite), to the reception tent, unique bonfire after party, and dog friendly property, everything was perfect. Thank you to Meesha, Tajlei, Melissa and the entire Wilburton staff for all of their hard work, making us feel so special and truly putting together the weekend of our dreams from start to finish!
