Here are some great wedding venues in town:
•Birch Wood Vineyards
- This is the former Promises to Keep, and they're in the process of making the transition to the new venue. Promises was a great venue, and the remodel promises to improve upon an already beautiful site, so check it out. Update 10/31/16 - Performed my first wedding and rehearsal here over the weekend. And yes, I'm happy to report the new owners have done a wonderful job of remodeling!
The ceremony itself was well coordinated and my couple was very happy with all of the arrangements. Definitely a location to explore for your wedding in Derry if you're looking for an elegant yet rustic setting.
•Brookstone Event Center
- Despite the fact that Brookstone has been here for many years, I had never officiated a ceremony here, nor had I even heard of it until this June, when I had the pleasure of performing a wedding there. Everything was very organized. I loved the terrace area - it's tented so you don't have to worry about the weather. About the only thing that went wrong was that I lost my JP podium for a couple of minutes - long story, which I won't bore you with now.
