The Pond Pavilion at Equinox took my breath away - it was the venue of my dreams. It speaks for itself and we were lucky to have great weather for our wedding day in October. This review is for Ruth, their onsite event planner. When our first wedding coordinator at the Equinox left about two months before our wedding, Ruth jumped in and didn’t miss a beat – she got up-to-speed so quickly that we didn’t have time to worry. She was very calming and made us feel much better about the whole process and our plans for the day. Everything on our wedding day was perfect and we know we have her to thank. We can not recommend the Pond Pavilion and Ruth at Equinox enough!

My husband and I got married at the Equinox on October 24th, 2015. We had our ceremony on the 1811 Lawn and the reception in the Colonnade Ballroom. The Equinox did an amazing job executing the event from start to finish. I worked with Charlotte Callahan who is their Wedding and Events Manager. Charlotte made my wedding the most stress-free and flawless event I could ever ask for. From my first meeting with Charlotte to the very last moment of my wedding, she was right by my side and there to take care of anything I needed. She was professional and personable and all around very easy to work with! Any bride would be lucky to work with Charlotte as a wedding planner. Charlotte helped out with selecting local vendors to rehearsal dinner recommendations and everything else in between. We did not need to hire an extra wedding planner, because really it was an unnecessary service while working with Charlotte. The Equinox was a perfect wedding campus for our wedding. Our guests stayed at the Main Inn and the groomsmen took over the 1811 house - which worked out perfectly! I stayed in the Orvis Suite which could not have worked out better. The staff was excellent and our guests raved about the food and service I cannot say enough great things about our experience working with the Equinox. They made my wedding the best day of my life and I would recommend it to any couple looking at venues in New England.

The Equinox Resort is absolutely beautiful. We had a fairy tale, out of the world wedding and we have had countless guests tell us they have never been to a more beautiful, fun wedding. The resort itself has a great spa and amazing deck with a huge fire pit. It is an awesome spot to hang out with friends after your reception or during your wedding weekend. We had our wedding at the pond pavilion- WOW, it is the most gorgeous spot in the world- Right at the base of the Equinox mountain, with a clean pond, and a rustic pavilion that sits literally in the water. It is like you are in a whole new wonderful world when you are at the pond. There were no bugs either, which was a big concern of some of my friends. The food was amazing and the staff was very flexible. We ended up changing the time of our dessert buffet and moving the DJ outside so we could dance the night away under the stars on the stone patio. The suite we stayed in was the most beautiful suite we have ever stayed in or laid eyes on. It was huge- 2 bathrooms, 2 floors, clean, but still had some old, vintage charm (not to mention 24 hour room service- get that turkey sandwich late night and in the morning, order breakfast because it was to die for). Although I encountered some bumps in the road when planning my wedding at the equinox- with our room block, some catering issues, and a small transportation issue, the staff at the Equinox did everything they could to make any mistake or inconvenience up to me. They ensured I was a happy bride and went above and beyond to make up for anything that i was even a little unhappy about. They did not stop at just resolving the issue. I still am in disbelief that our wedding was truly perfect. Nothing is perfect, right? Wrong!! Our wedding was truly magical and absolutely out of this world. My bridesmaids keep saying they feel bad for anyone who has to get married after us...well, UNLESS they do it at the Equinox too.

We cannot say enough amazing things about the total experience we had at the Equinox nor do we grow tired of the constant compliments we still hear from our guests. Our wedding took advantage of all the resort has to offer: we rented out the 1811 House, hosted a welcome party at the pond pavilion, and had our reception in the Colonnade Ballroom. All of this required quite a bit of planning and my wife only sang the highest of praises about Charlotte and all the work she did to coordinate our many wedding events. Her attention to detail, prompt responses, flexibility, thoughtfulness to vendors and guests, creativity of ideas (honestly, we could go on and on and on!) let us know we were in the most competent and trusted hands. The beauty of the resort is something to be seen, nestled at the foot of Mount Equinox in the picturesque town of Manchester. The rolling hills of Vermont provided an unprecedented backdrop to our outdoor ceremony that left guests in awe. As someone with a culinary background and just a guy who likes to eat, having a wedding where the guests enjoyed the food was a priority. The Equinox delivered above and beyond anything we could have expected! Over the two-day event our guests sampled over 12 passed hors d'oeuvres, countless desserts, various entrees, and a farewell brunch. The welcome party had a buffet and the wedding reception was a plated event. Our wedding really exposed us to all the exceptional talents of the Equinox chef and kitchen. Many guests told us that the food at our wedding was the best they had experienced at any wedding. One other thing we want to highlight is the exceptional staff. They absolutely went above and beyond to accommodate our guests and make them as comfortable as possible. When a guest complained about the reception room being too hot a staff member brought him cold towels to keep him cool. Charlotte and everyone at the Equinox did an amazing job planning every single detail of our weddin

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect in large part because of Lauren and the whole Equinox team. We got married at the pond which was spectacular and we had a stress free weekend because of all the hard work of Lauren and her team did for us. We can't say enough good things about the hotel or the staff and I promise you will be so happy with your decision if you choose The Equinox.

The Equinox Hotel was AMAZING! I had the wedding of my dreams. It was so wonderful to have a coordinator who helped everything run smoothly and have in-house everything. I was able to get a great deal by having my wedding in the winter on a non-holiday Friday. Everyone at the hotel knew about the wedding and congratulated us around every corner. I really CAN NOT say enough about how fabulous this was... I am so sad it is over.

We did not use this vendor for the venue, but they catered our reception dinner at the Southern Vermont Arts Center. It was done beautifully and met our every wish.

We had our Wedding at the Pond. Ruth and Lauren were our coordinators and were amazing. Throughout the process their response to questions was almost immediate. As a bride it was assuring to know you could fully trust and rely on your planners. Would recommend the Pond it was breathtaking !!

I can say that, without a doubt, The Equinox is the perfect venue for couples looking for a romantic and scenic venue matched with impeccable service and luxurious amenities. The resort and town of Manchester Village provide a beautiful backdrop for a destination wedding weekend within a few hours' drive from New York and Boston. Our entire planning experience with the Sales, Catering, Culinary, Golf and Spa teams was absolutely flawless - they helped us put together a weekend full of fabulous activities, UNIQUE and restaurant-quality dining, and above all, impeccable service for our guests. We have received SO much positive feedback from our guests - even so far as WE have received thank you notes from THEM in the mail these past couple of weeks! I can't say enough about The Equinox team and cannot thank them enough for making our wedding unforgettable.

Jessica Smith was an absolute pleasure to work with. The Equinox provided the elegance we were searching for. The costs is excessive, but worth every penny.

The team at the Equinox was wonderful to work with. They were flexible with their menus and were professional from beginning to end. Most importantly, they were happy to partner with my wedding planner to make everything perfect.

My now husband and I took a trip to check out wedding venues a few years back. We were looking for a rustic venue with a picturesque nature and water around it. This was the first place we visited. Although the Inn looks beautiful, it didn’t match our expectations at first glance. However, upon meeting staff and being shuttled to the pavilion (which could not be directly seen from the Inn), we found the perfect hidden gem. It has an outstanding view of water and mountains as well as the a rustic cabin feel. It feels like you are away but you are still close enough to the beautiful town of Manchester and all that it has to offer. We ended up visiting several other venues on this trip and subsequent trips but ultimately came back to this perfect spot at The Equinox. While others hit one or two of our checkboxes this one checked them all! The event staff was a pleasure to work with. We initially started off with one event coordinator who ended up leaving during our planning process. While this can be stressful, the transition to our new coordinator Charlotte was very smooth and we were lucky have planned with her! Since we are not locals they were able to accommodate us with our travel plans. The food tasting was phenomenal and we had a hard time cutting down our choices. We decided to go with a buffet style. We also skipped having a cake and decided to go with desserts. They worked with us to create several fall style desserts which were very tasty, including their own homemade cider donuts. Our wedding day was organized very well and went smoothly. Ruth was the coordinator of the day and did an amazing job keeping with the timeline. Whenever dealing with a member of staff it was a pleasurable experience. If a problem arose whether it be monetary or a type service, it was handled well and reasonably. We had a great experience having our wedding at The Equinox pavilion (they have a ballroom as well) and would recommend it to anyone!
