Celebrate Your Wedding At A Bed And Breakfast

Posted: 08/31/2012 7:00 am

Two people committing to love each other is the most important part of any wedding ceremony. But before the nuptials, many happy couples search high and low for the perfect location.

There are many factors to consider and this is true for local celebrations as well as destination weddings. Will it be an oceanfront extravaganza or an intimate setting on a private beach? How about in the majestic mountains or a remote small town? An elegant city affair or a quaint country gathering?

Plan to get married at Seaward Inn, Rockport, Massachusetts; 1740 House, Lumberville, Pennsylvania; HollyHedge Estate, New Hope, Pennsylvania; Gilded Cupid, Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania; Falcon Inn, Eagle City, Alaska; or Cedars and Beeches Bed & Breakfast, Long Branch, New Jersey.

Rest assured that your special day at one of these gorgeous bed and breakfast inns will be stunning and affordable.
