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.

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!

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!!

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!

Everything we wanted!

After meeting her one time, I felt like I had known Ingrid my whole life. Her excitement and confidence in us having our wedding at the Covered Bridge Inn made us so assured that we were in good hands and choosing the right place. It was the first and only venue we toured. We knew we were having a big wedding (~215 guests) but didn’t want the typical ballroom or country club feel. The barn was perfect. For someone who loves to plan and be picky with details, it was my absolute dream space. The flexibility in being able to bring all of the decorations in a few days early and get them out on another day made our weekend stress free. The inn itself is a perfect place to get ready and sleep over at. Being greeted with fresh coffee and homemade breakfast in the morning was such a treat. Although we chose to have our rehearsal dinner elsewhere, I’m sure it would have been a really special experience to have it there as well. I can’t say enough about the Covered Bridge Inn and our experience there, other than I wish we had the opportunity to do it over and over again! I’m hoping we will get to return there again in the future :)
