These days, as Covid restrictions remain in effect and more and more couples are looking to tie the knot in the open air, the exquisite landscape of the Massachusetts highlands makes an outdoor celebration in the Berkshires a no-brainer. Why sacrifice romance for safety when you can have it all?

Deerfield Inn.The Deerfield Inn, just a hop, skip and a jump from the Berkshires, is best known for its classic beauty, and the authentic New England charm of its versatile Terrace venue. The Terrace has French doors that open to a patio with a tented lawn. Whether your reception is an elegant banquet or a casual barbeque, the Deerfield Inn can comfortably accommodate up to 100 guests who will happily mingle in the delightful Deerfield gardens and enjoy the crisp Berkshire air. 

The Clark Art Institute in Williamstown is famous for its iconic reflecting pool, extensive art collection, and international research center. Pro-tip: The Clark also has an awesome outdoor wedding space! Moltz Terrace, located at the summit of one of the Clark’s beautiful woodland paths, accommodates up to 100 guests and offers stunning views of the Taconic Mountains.

Mountain views are the name of the game at Whitcomb Summit Retreat in Florida, Massachusetts. The retreat is a 19-acre property located right on the famous Mohawk Trail. The mountaintop offers level lawn spaces for ceremonies and tent receptions with spectacular vistas on all sides. 

If waterfront views are more your style, why not have your ceremony at the Berkshire Lakehouse in Lanesborough? Say “I do” against the backdrop of Pontoosuc Lake’s serene beauty. The property can accommodate up to 150 reception guests in a state-of-the art events tent.

All of these venues offer wedding liaisons who will be happy to partner with you every step of the way as you plan, so on the big day you can relax and enjoy your dream wedding in the Berkshires! Looking for more I Do inspo? Visit here!
