Perfect Wedding Weekend

Ingrid & her team are absolutely amazing! They made our wedding weekend perfect and helped us every step of the way. From planning, to rehearsal & the big day, Ingrid was always there to answer any questions, give suggestions and keep everything running smoothly. The barn, the farmhouse, the bridge...everything about this venue is perfect. Beautiful inside and out (and not just the venue!!) Ingrid goes above & beyond to make sure you have the wedding weekend of your dreams. I can't recommend Ingrid & the Covered Bridge Inn enough!!

The Covered Bridge Inn will forever be the backdrop to the fairytale wedding of our dreams! This venue is classically beautiful in all its history and simplicity that you can feel in your bones as you take in the scenery. Ingrid is truely amazing and held our hands every step of the way ensuring our comfortablilty and confidence leading up to our wedding (during a hurricane warning) through the next day when we shared an amazing homemade frenchtoast breakfast. The amount of hats she chooses to wear, and how well she wears them well shows how much she cares about the people who stay at the Inn and the experience of all guests that are welcomed along with the event. This venue also boasts 4 bedrooms that we were able to stay in for the weekend with some of our close friends and fully enjoy the feel of home during what could have been a very stressful time. We will forever be humbled and greatful for our experience here for our wedding weekend.

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.

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!

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.
