Weddings & Catering

Vermont’s Most Beautiful Weddings Start Here

"We would like to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding service received during our wedding reception. From the very first introduction, Tiffany impressed and exceeded our expectations. She was a pleasure to correspond and work with throughout the process.
"Many thanks also go to The Essex Resort's Executive Chef and staff who contributed to making our wedding reception such a success. The food stations looked great. The appetizers, main courses, and desserts were incredible. The compliments we received were plenty. Even the children raved about the food!

"Lastly, we thank the wait staff and bartenders who were so gracious and hustled all night, through the unusually warm weather. Please know that anybody who is thinking of using the Essex for catering will not be disappointed!"
