Venue Scout: Church Landing at Mill Falls

While in New Hampshire last week, I had the chance to visit Church Landing at Mill Falls, a resort on Lake Winnipesaukee. Though built just a few years ago, it has the charm of a turn-of-the-century lodge with all the comforts of a modern inn & spa. Though we arrived on a dismal, drizzly day, I couldn't help but imagine a wedding on the premises.

Throughout the wedding weekend, guests could cozy up around a fireplace, a boardgame, or a conversation. In my imagination, the "windowseat room" could even double as an intimate ceremony location, I think. {Just remove the center table and pull up some chairs!}

There would be no need to leave the location for portraits, as the entire property is lovely.

The ceremony could take place on the lawn or in the gazebo (that boasts a built in aisle!). After, guests could gather in the sunken garden {below} or even around the pool, lit up for the occasion, for the cocktail hour. Dinner and dancing could be under the stars or in Church Landing's ballroom, then the party could head back out to the pool and its fire pit for post-dinner marshmallow roasting.

And what better getaway at the end of the night for a wedding on the Lake than this?

This is all just my dreaming, of course. You'd have to check with the resort to see what's actually possible, and you can do that here!


  1. What a beautiful place. Thanks for the connection.
    Might be a place for hubby and I to go for a vacation when we have the time.

  2. Absolutely! Even though I was there in the summer, I couldn't help but imagine how romantic a winter vacation it would be, as well {that may have had something to do with how cold and dismal it was when I was there!}.

  3. This place looks amazing! I'm definitely going to try to make it up there sometime.

  4. I love the boat getaway idea!
