A Spring Wedding at Saint James Place

As the daffodils bloom and the leaves unfurl on the trees, spring has sprung in the Berkshires. It’s a beautiful season to be married in the Berkshires. As the county braces for the summer rush, spring is a quieter time with all of our incredible amenities still available. May and early June are gorgeous: our trees show off their bright green leaves and colorful daffodils and lilacs bloom.

Spring is a season of renewal – so it’s the perfect time to pamper yourself. The Berkshires offer many locations and opportunities to relax and rejuvenate. Consider a spa visit. Canyon Ranch in Lenox is world – renowned and they offer an array of health and wellness programs in the elegant Bellfontaine Mansion. Stockbridge offers the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. Get centered before all the chaos!

If you want to head outdoors, first visit the many fabulous clothing and gear stores in Great Barrington, Stockbridge, Lenox, and Lee. Stock up on pieces that layer – it starts out cool in the morning but can be quite warm in the afternoon!

Friday afternoon your guests begin to arrive. They can chose from elegant accommodations: The Barrington, a boutique hotel in the heart of Great Barrington; the historic Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge; or the more moderately priced Fairfield Marriott and Days Inn.

When it’s time to start getting ready for the wedding, Great Barrington has many salons to choose from or have your makeup and hair done right at Saint James Place in the bride’s ready room (we have a room for the groom too).

And Saint James Place is right in the middle of town, a perfect spot for catered cocktails and your rehearsal dinner. Or you can opt for cocktails and dinner at dozens of amazing restaurants in Great Barrington or in the surrounding Southern Berkshires towns (we’re happy to make suggestions).

Good choice you! A spring wedding in the Berkshires is a beautiful way to begin your married life. Let us help you to plan your special day at Saint James Place.
