Congratulations to Candi and Josh. They came to stay with us two days on an elopement package and were lucky enough to have both rain and sunshine on their wedding day! After a quick ceremony on the patio, they had a small reception in the tavern and headed up to Mt. Washington for the afternoon. They are a wonderful, personable couple and we wish them the best of luck!

This young couple escaped for a white mountain elopement here and we all had the best time! They are originally from Texas and wanted to be married in the snow so off we tromped (Vera in her dress) to the top of the hill! The view was perfect - we couldnt have asked for any better. We hope to see them again before they head back down to Texas…We all wish you two all the best!

The New Mr. and Mrs. Stansfield
Originally uploaded by darbyfieldinn. Ronald Stansfield and Maggie Darden travelled here from Rhode Island to tie the knot on our back patio, with family and her daughter witnessing the ceremony. We got some great photos, and they enjoyed the Shackford Suite, one of our deluxe rooms, and dinner later that evening. We wish them the best of luck and hope to see them for future anniversaries!

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Sager

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Sager

Meet Jennifer Brown and Eric Sager - they arrived as two people and left as a married couple. Jennifer thought she wanted to have her ceremony in our award-winning gardens, however, there were no pictures of them on our website. She was nervous until she saw that the flowers are truely beautiful! I chose this picture from their wedding because it’s a great shot of them, and also to show others that the garden is a wonderful backdrop! Jennifer, Eric and their friends were great and very patient with me, which I appreciate…we wish them all the best married life has to offer!

They Did It!

They Did It!

Amee and Brian came to stay at the Darby Field Inn for their elopement. They exchanged their vows in front of innkeeper and justice of the peace, Marc Donaldson, and were very patient while I took tons of photos! They had a great time during their three days here, getting tandem massages before the ceremony, a champagne toast and dinner that evening. They were a very photogenic couple; you can view more of their pictures in the wedding section of our photo gallery on the main page of our website. Thank you for sharing, Amee and Brian, and we wish you two all the best!

"Inn"-troducing Mr. & Mrs. Barnett!

Saturday, April 28th, 2007

Congratulations to Judi Graham & William Barnett as they begin their new life together…

Judi and Bill weren’t intersted in a big wedding - instead they chose to join us here at the Darby Field Inn for an elopement. Fortunately there was a break in the rainy weather so Marc could perform their ceremony on the patio. After warming up in front of the fire in the living room, they joined us for dinner. They are a fun-loving couple, and a pleasure to have as guests. We wish them the best of luck, and look forward to seeing them again in the future!

In gardening news, our newest arrival is Pulmonaria, commonly known as lungwort. Like bloodroot, it is also an early spring bloomer, spreads fast, and disappears soon after the blossoms fade. This flower offers two colors, fuscia buds and beautiful blue blooms. It is another great addition to any garden. Bloodroot and lungwort both arrive shortly after jonquils, and last much longer, displaying the “carpet of flowers” effect. Faye has been very busy in the gardens; there are new shoots everywhere! Next week I’ll show you two comparison shots, taken two weeks apart, and introduce you to the next blooming beauty in our garden!
Marc and Maria Donaldson, our innkeepers, are celebrating their 28th year here at the Darby Field. Check out their “inn”-iversary special (http://www.darbyfield.com/packagesdetails.html?sku=2004120412) to find out what this means to you. Until next time, bid farewell to the April showers, and enjoy your own May flowers!

Spring is on the Way!

Changing of the Seasons:
Helllloooo MUD!

We are celebrating the end of another season here at the Darby. The last two sleigh rides went out on Thursday, March 22nd…the first full day of spring, coincidentally. The Smiths, of Rochester, New Hampshire, were celebrating an anniversary here at the Darby with the dinner and sleigh ride package (purchased for them by their adult children…) and the Savages were staying here at the Inn, from Merrimack, New Hampshire.
The end of snow officially begins an often dreaded season, mud season! While some people play in it, and the flowers live for it, we use it as an excuse to reflect on the past season, take a deep breath, and prepare for the next one. Kim, Beth and Spike are taking a well-deserved rest before carriage rides start up (keep an eye out for new carriage offerings later this spring…), Marc and Maria (the innkeepers) are taking a little vacation, and Faye is getting ready to work her magic in our award-winning gardens, again. We’ll be following her progress this year, so keep checking back to watch our flowers (and vegetables) grow. I’ll also be passing on gardening hints I pick up while helping her out, here and there. Just a reminder:

Darby Field will be closed from April 9th to April 19th, and then open weekends only ’til the 29th.
We still have some great specials going on, so keep an eye on the Last Minute Special page on our website. Do you want to be a spring bride? We’ve created a new page for elopements and intimate ceremonies that is worth a look. Golfers, please note our new midweek golf special, and for those who just love a great deal, our Spring is in the Air package is for you! Until next time, Enjoy Spring and watch out for the Mud!
