I'm pretty new to The Knot and am already addicted. Just got engaged in December and planning a summer (prob June) wedding for 2012. We live in Montana (both in school) but are planning our wedding in western Mass. My FI is from Lenox and so while we were home for Christmas we looked at a few venues but the rest will be long distance.
Does anyone have suggestions for the Springfield, MA and/or Hartford, CT surrounding areas? We will have quite a few guests flying in to BDL (Windsor/Hartford) so we are trying to stay within an hour or so drive of the airport. We are anticipating about 100-120 guest and would love to have an outdoor ceremony. Reception does not have to be at same location but would be convenient.
Also, we are trying to keep the per person around 30-40 if possible but are open to other ideas. Outside caterer option would be great, but not neccessary if the price at the venue is right. Trying to keep a blend of beautiful and budget.
Thanks, in advance, for any and all help!
