Hildene: A Local Wedding Experience

Southern Vermont’s jewel, the Robert Todd Lincoln estate, is located in the scenic village of Manchester. ‘Hildene,’ as it is called, is situated on a west-ward facing promontory overlooking the Battenkill Valley, with broad sweeping views of the Taconic range to the East. The atmosphere is quaint and intimate. It’s a magical place with wonderful, private photography nooks, incredible event infrastructure with majestic views to create a truly memorable ceremony, rehearsal or reception.

Vermont Wedding Venue Hildene

Imagine farm tables, lush peonies and fresh, mountain air. Imagine photographs on the steps of the Lincoln family home. There is at once something so affirming about the venue and yet it’s backdrop creates weddings as if out of a dream.

Even though a registered, active historic site, the property is so well-versed in wedding culture that they have a dedicated florist and award-winning caterer who are committed to bringing the very best of Vermont to your reception table. Your menu will be influenced by the produce and products of local farmers and the richness of the season.
