Description

Once called a “concrete castle for the New World,” the Fonthill Castle Museum provides a truly one-of-a-kind space for your big day. As guests arrive down the long tree-lined drive, they’ll be greeted with picturesque views of the castle’s expansive grounds, spanning over several acres. Imagine sharing your most sacred vows on the emerald lawns outside of the castle surrounded by towering ivy-laden trees. After the ceremony, you and your guests can enjoy an al fresco cocktail hour on the second floor terrace overlooking the beautifully bucolic grounds. Wind your way down the elegant stairs to enter the Garden Ballroom Tent, where you can dine and dance the night away beneath sparkling chandeliers. If you’d like an indoor reception, head into the lavish pavilion complete with Moravian tile and a towering vaulted ceiling. Completed in 1910, the Fonthill Castle Museum possesses a distinct old world refinement that’s perfect for a remarkable wedding that guests will be talking about for years to come!
