Susan + Stephen, The Winthrop Estate

Lenox, MA


Susan and Stephen designed their wedding experience to introduce their friends and family to their respective cultures and love of travel. Susan is American and Stephen is British so they decided to have a rehearsal dinner that would make all of Stephen’s relatives feel right at home. To help them achieve this goal, our chefs created a Steak and Ale pie that the guests assured us was as delicious as anything they could find in Britain. Once the families and wedding party enjoyed their dinner, other guests were invited to join a Welcome Party to get to know one another before the main festivities began.

For the wedding, Susan chose an English Garden Tea Party theme for the decor that once again incorporated their love of travel and books with lovely tea cups, antique books and fragrant garden roses. After the ceremony with beautiful views of the Berkshire Mountains, guests were treated to seasonal hors d’oeuvres such as corn cakes with avocado relish, roasted beets with chevre and pork gyozas with a soy-ginger dipping sauce. Once dinner was thoroughly enjoyed, the guests returned inside the lovely estate and danced the night away.
