Our goal at Melange is to provide you with the supreme experience of elegance and charm on your wedding day- the biggest day of your life! When you book your wedding at the Melange, you will have exclusive use of, and access to, all of our finely-appointed facilities and beautiful gardens. The Melange can accommodate the most intimate weddings for a small and select gathering or larger weddings of 125+ guests. Indeed, if your wedding party includes thirty or more guests, we will guaranty your privacy by assuring that no other event occurs on the property on the day of your wedding.
The grounds and the historic home at the Melange offer a number of magnificent location options for your wedding- both indoors and outdoors – each with its own distinct ambiance and flavor. Imagine nuptials before a delightful fountain or glorious blooming roses, or in a Mediterranean Courtyard; and photos next to a large marble fireplace, on a sweeping staircase, or beneath an ancient maple tree! Perhaps your wedding in one area, and your reception in another; and your guests enjoying the grounds as you are taking photos? Seemingly endless options, as noted below, all with beautiful surroundings!Click on Any Image to Enlarge
