83 The Essex, Vermont’s Culinary Resort & Spa Reviews
Married on 10/17/2015
BEST PLACE TO GET MARRIED. First off- Shana is awesome and answered all our questions. She was so easy to work with. The Essex location is awesome. I was able to meet with Shana before the wedding and ... Read more went through all the small details. We originally wanted to have our ceremony outside but it was so cold that we decided to have it inside and it was perfect. The food was amazing. Also after the dancing was over, we were able to have a bon fire outside and then who ever wanted to stay late at the tavern bar could do so. Highly recommend The Essex for a wedding venue !

This review is for the Ponds at Bolton Valley. Our planners Julia Preston and Emily Ellis were the most incredible planners throughout the process and were amazing to work with. They answered every ... Read more detailed question and request and threw in so many unique touches to make our day extra special (like a giant five tiered peanut butter cake for our dog) The venue and grounds were beautiful! Loved the bridal suite at the Ponds for pre-ceremony to stay cool... The food was incredible --our favorite was our Friday night welcome bbq with the best pulled pork, mac and cheese and potato salad!-- but everything throughout the weekend was so good. Can't say enough good things about this place!

The Essex was the perfect venue for us and I am so grateful to our wedding coordinator Arienne and the entire staff for making our day amazing! With The Essex providing the catering, wedding ... Read more coordinator, equipment (i.e. tables, chairs, linens), much of the usual stress of planning a wedding was alleviated and everything ran so smoothly. In terms of the venue, the lawn and atrium are gorgeous spaces for the ceremony and reception, respectively. Our guests were largely from out of town and it was so convenient for all of them to be able to stay at the resort (which also provides courtesy transportation from the Burlington airport). Our wedding coordinator, Arienne, was incredibly responsive and helpful with inquiries and was organized, calm and flexible throughout the entire planning process and on the wedding day. The food and cake were so delicious and we had many guests with dietary restrictions for whom the chefs made several special plates. All of our guests were very complimentary of venue and services provided. I cannot say enough positive things about the Essex and highly recommend for a wonderful wedding experience.
