The Total Package

I recently had my wedding at The Covered Bridge Inn, October 2019. There was a last minute opening and we booked and planned the wedding in less than 6 months! When the spot opened, I knew I couldn’t pass up such a great opportunity at this very sought out venue in Lewes, DE.

The Covered Bridge Inn is a magical place. As soon as you walk on the property you know that it is very special. The Inn is immaculately kept and cared for. The barn and bridge are so elegant as is and act as the perfect backdrop for your most special day. There are so many unique places to find and take the perfect wedding photos. Every sight is breath taking. Come tour and you will know exactly what I am talking about.

Ingrid, the innkeeper and venue operator really is the star of this operation. It is unreal how hardworking and helpful she is throughout your entire process. She covers every detail. She is there the entire wedding weekend, cooks you breakfast each morning, coordinates vendors and even helps get you down the aisle (something I will never forget). She is such a genuine person and master at what she does. She helped make the entire weekend run so smoothly and I felt at ease knowing my event was in her hands.

Seriously, you are missing out if you don’t tour this venue. My husband and I immediately knew this was where we wanted to say our “I do’s” and I know you will too.

Simply perfect!

As a local of Southern Delaware, we were looking for an authentic farm experience mixed with class and comfort and the Covered Bridge Inn provided just that. Ingrid and Corrine were easy to work with from the start, prompt at answering questions and invaluable the day of as they helped everything run smoothly. Having the entire property including the Inn for the whole weekend made our stay comfortable and much more hassle free. We had the rehearsal dinner in the cow stalls located adjacent to the barn the evening before and were able to host the entire bridal party Friday night at the Inn which was a nice gift for those who meant so much to us. The Inn was perfect for getting ready the morning of and Ingrid even made all of our guests breakfast each morning. As far as the actual grounds and barn, they are beautiful. There are numerous electrical outlets throughout and so much space that you really can transform it in to whatever you desire. As an added bonus, the ice cream truck from the families functioning dairy farm can be included for dessert at a steal of a price! The beach is less than ten to fifteen minutes away and has numerous hotel options for all of the guests. I cannot express enough how truly magical our experience was at the Covered Bridge Inn and I highly recommend this venue to everyone!

Just Beautiful

We found out about the Covered Bridge Inn through word of mouth shortly after Ingrid transformed a portion of her family farm into this gorgeous venue. We set up an appointment and toured the grounds, and knew immediately that it was the venue for us, not only because the grounds are just stunning but also because Ingrid was so helpful and clearly devoted to making our day perfect for us--and that she did. Ingrid was attentive and thoughtful, she stayed in the background most of the day of but somehow popped up just when we needed her. She paid attention to detail and compensated in areas that lacked (for example my florist forgot to make our aisle flower pieces and Ingrid improvised, without request, by adding beautiful holly bushels to the end of each aisle). Not to mention the abundant and delicious breakfast she provided for the bridesmaids the morning of the wedding and her assistance in setting up the ceremony and reception. In addition to the amazing Ingrid, the venue is just perfect. It provided a romantic, moody and rustic feel--perfect for a casual but sexy wedding space. We also held our rehearsal dinner at the venue in the dairy barn (a first I believe) and I couldn't get over the romance and intimacy the space provided! The room still has the original white metal dairy stalls that add an antique touch. We added to the space by lining the room with wooden harvest tables garnished with sage and white pumpkins. Votive candles, brass candlesticks and a string of Tuscan lights provided warm light. Add Italian catering and red wine to top it off. This is just to show you how amazing the venue is and how you can make it special for your day. I can't say enough good things about Ingrid and her venue. If a rustic, yet romantic feel, with freedom to make it your own is what you're looking for, this is a great option for you.

Johanna & Andrew

I cannot speak more highly of the Covered Bridge Inn and the wedding weekend. The Covered Bridge is the absolute perfect wedding venue! There is so much space that allows you to essentially design the look and feel of the ceremony and the reception. You have the flexibility to make it exactly as you want. Having the venue for the weekend allowed for plenty of time for set up and allowed for us to have a welcome reception for all of the guests that were in from out of town. The Bed and Breakfast is incredibly comfortable and inviting and having access to it allowed for hair and makeup to come onsite to make the day less hectic and stress free. Ingrid, the owner/innkeeper/event coordinator, made the entire experience from start to finish SO easy! This is only her second wedding season and you would think she has been doing this for decades with how seamless the whole process was. All of our guests were blown away by the venue and the weekend as a whole. I would easily recommend this venue to anyone as they would not be disappointed. It was the perfect wedding weekend and I have the Covered Bridge and Ingrid to thank for that!

Best Day Ever

My husband and I were recently married on June 1, 2019 at The Covered Bridge Inn. The absolute best day of my life spent with my favorite people at a venue that couldnt suite our laid back personalities better. Every aspect of the venue is beautiful in its own natural way. We were able to add our special touch with florals, candles, and wood accents which helped bring everything to life. It turned out to be so much better than I ever imagined.

I can't say enough good things about the staff at The Covered Bridge Inn, the Inn Keeper, Ingrid was a crucial part to the whole experience. She seemed to always be there whenever she was needed. On the big day I was busy getting ready, she was there to answer all the difficult questions and made sure everyone knew what they should be doing. Without her, we wouldn't have been able to relax and just enjoy the experience nearly as much as we did.

Thank you, Ingrid and staff. We are forever grateful and would recommend the wedding weekend to anyone who is questioning it!
