Once the possibility of a backyard wedding had been ruled out, Spencer and I decided to check out a few venues. Being in the industry I had done quite a bit of research on my own and had narrowed down the list of potential venues to three options.
We made an appointment to visit our first choice of the three and fell in love with it on the spot. We signed our contract the very next day.
The Red Lion Inn is a charming historic inn nestled in the center of seaside Cohasset, Massachusetts. With only two Saturdays in 2011 available we decided to have a fall wedding and after taking a tour I truly can’t imagine a better time of year to have an event there. On that October afternoon the cozy, rustic inn could have been a postcard of autumn in New England. With the tree-lined streets full of vibrant colors and the aroma of butternut squash bisque emanating from the tavern I was sold.
The barn in the back is a blank slate with so much character I couldn’t wait to start planning the details. Here is a sneak peek, but you will have to wait until the fall to see how The Wedding Belle transforms the space!
