WEDDING CEREMONY SITES

Officiant Carmen George

Vermont offers many beautiful locations to elope or have a small wedding that are affordable.

On this page you will see venues and sites that are very different from each other; there is something for everyone.
 

Underneath each listing is a link to photos I took at that location to show more features of that area.

WINTER VENUES
I recommend choosing an indoor location starting in late-October and going through late April. The temperature drops significantly during those months and snow is a possibility. See the bottom of this page for affordable venues.

"Carmen married us and she was the perfect choice. She's professional, friendly, a great sense of humor, and goes above and beyond to make people happy. We highly recommend her." - E.G.

 

"I just wanted to say thank you. You were so helpful and supportive. The wedding went really well and as I predicted my family cried. Thank you for all you did, all your help, and for performing such a great ceremony.
Sincerely," - Trevor and Mook

"You are amazing - I LOVE it!! Thank you again for all you did for us! We couldn't have asked for a better day."  -Kristen

"Carmen was wonderful. Very communicative, funny and kind. She had very good suggestions and she made me a beautiful bouquet. She was also flexible and willing to accommodate special requests (we wanted a bilingual ceremony which she not only did not have a problem with, she was excited about!). Our day couldn't have been any better. 100% recommend."

-Andrea
