Chelsea Clinton’s Mansion Wedding Creates a Stir:
Couples Now Planning Estate Weddings of Their Own at B&B Manors Like These
iLoveInns.com, leading on-line bed & breakfast and country inn directory, recommends eight exclusive B&B manors for couples inspired to plan one-of-a-kind estate weddings similar to Chelsea Clinton’s at the Astor Court Mansion in Rhinebeck, NY.
If you don’t have the reported three million spent by the Clinton’s to cover your wedding venue, iLoveInns recommends researching the hundreds of luxurious manors and romantic estates that have been opened as small inns and bed and breakfasts. Many of these are historic properties that can boast the most beautiful vistas in the country because they got there first, before hotel developers. For example, the list below includes a 1934 private French Normandy mansion on 20 green acres, a 1921 villa overlooking the picturesque Hood River in Oregon; and an 1890 castle in Sharon, Pennsylvania, heralded as one of America’s Top 10 Most Romantic Inns.
Sample Bed and Breakfast Manor Wedding Locations Include:
• Wine & Roses – Lodi, Calif.
• Columbia Gorge Hotel – Hood River, Ore.
• Elk Cove Inn – Elk, Calif.
• Bella Vista B&B – Placerville, Calif.
• Arrowhead Manor – Morrison, Colo.
• Buhl Mansion Guest House & Spa – Sharon, Pa.
• Greencrest Manor – Battle Creek, Mich.

Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky chose the Astor Court Mansion for its 50 acres of rolling landscape for her “family” wedding at which 400 guests were accommodated. The ceremony was held outdoors with the stunning, history-rich mansion as its backdrop. Their reception was housed in a luxurious tent not 100 yards from the ceremony where it is reported that romance, endless dancing and laughter were shared until the early morning hours. The following day all 400 guests were treated to a delicious brunch at Astor Court. A similar experience is available to all inquiring couples if they peruse the fine inns and exclusive settings provided by bed and breakfast innkeepers.
