Best Venue Ever!! Magical Experience!!

The Covered Bridge Inn is amazing! We got married in July. The heat didn’t stop us. Everything was perfect thanks to THE MOST AMAZING wedding planner, Nikki Chambers with Elevee Events. If you want your wedding to go absolutely perfect with no stress, Nikki is your girl!! She’s bomb and goes above and beyond. Ingrid, the owner of CBI was so awesome and accommodating. She made us feel at home for our wedding weekend. We even had our dog (child) stay with us at the inn and be apart of our special day. The weekend at CBI for our wedding was a weekend to never forget. It was everything I dreamed of. Thank you Ingrid and Nikki. CBI holds a special place in our hearts.

Love Kelly and Dalton Waddell and Zoey (woof woof)

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.

Most Beautiful Venue

My husband and I had the PLEASURE of getting married on May 18th, 2019 at The Covered Bridge Inn. The process leading up to our special day was seamless due to Ingrid’s experience, responsiveness, and kind nature to make everything as perfect as possible. Ingrid is one of the most special people that we have ever had the honor to know, or work with. Our wedding was the most beautiful day; however, we did have an unexpected event that occurred when my father collapsed on the dance due to a cardiac episode. Ingrid’s ability to act quickly and diligently (in a situation that she has never experienced before) allowed my husband and I to privately have the time with our family to manage the situation, while Ingrid managed our guests and vendors, somehow still keeping the party going. My husband and I were able to re-join our guests after ensuring that my dad was going to be alright, and we owe that all to Ingrid. Our wedding weekend was one that we will never forget due to the gorgeous venue, amazing staff, and five star accommodations. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for not just a wedding day, but a full wedding weekend experience.

Wedding Of Our Dreams

Our wedding was a dream come true at the Covered Bridge Inn. From the moment we stepped onto the property to tour, our experience with the innkeeper, Ingrid, was seamless. She has an extraordinary attention to detail and worked with us to achieve the wedding of our dreams. We truly enjoyed having the property "as our own" for the weekend and utilized every inch of it! From the reception barn to the milking parlor to the beautiful inn, our wedding weekend was perfect. It's incredibly nice to stay in one location starting from the rehearsal dinner through the ceremony and reception and ending with the morning-after brunch. Less time for traveling between locations and more time enjoying the celebration. I would redo our wedding over and over again at the Covered Bridge Inn and would recommend it to any bride and groom looking for a venue that is versatile, flexible and comfortable. Thank you Ingrid :-)

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.
