Weddings and Elopements

  • wed1

Congratulations on your happy decision, and thank you for your interest in Coppertoppe for your celebration of love and commitment. We would be honored to host your most special event!

Each wedding is unique and we only host one event at a time, so you can have everything just the way you want. We work with you and your team to design and set up the experience of a lifetime.

Whether you want an elopement for two (see our promotion) or a garden wedding for 100+ with a tent or rustic barn wedding reception, your vision can be fulfilled with careful planning and experienced guidance. Wedding planner JP and stylist services are available or you can engage your own. Couples who work with professional wedding planners receive a special discount. We help make your planning easy and part of the fun.

Coppertoppe is the perfect setting for your ceremony and reception, with acres of gardens, fields and woodlands, a  pond and lake views. The lawn and arbor overlooking Newfound Lake and the surrounding mountains provide an abundance of scenic views, birdsong and flowers. You can host your reception in a classic white tent or go three miles to a historic barn on a beautiful farm with a handsome horse (the barn only smells of hay). 

At Coppertoppe, we only host one big event at a time. In order to guarantee exclusive use of the facility, you must reserve the whole house for lodging for at least one night November through May and two nights June through October. You will have our undivided attention and exclusive use of the property.

Reception hours are negotiable. Our facility charge may include Justice of the Peace, pre-wedding or civil ceremony counseling, on-site ceremony, rehearsal, a post-wedding brunch, valet service, use of the grounds and professional coordination.

Ask for an invite to a folder of wedding pictures for your planned number of guests. We have MANY photos.

Our lavish lawn, arbor by the pond and garden patio, are natural settings for a “picture perfect” ceremony. Our outdoor party space is ideal for dancing and lounging. Our spacious dining room with a view comfortably seats up to 24 diners with elegant settings.

We are available by appointment to give you a tour of Coppertoppe and discuss reception details and menu options. We have albums of wedding pictures and can invite you to an online album to view more. Please contact Sheila at 603-744-3636 or to request a wedding/event planning worksheet and handouts or to schedule an appointment. If you send a request for pricing, the answer will be that we cannot give a quote until we know what you want. That is what the worksheet does for you. How many guests do you expect? How many are in your wedding party? What services do you want us to handle? What date or season do you want? Or as we like to say, how can we thrill you if we don't know what you want?

The only things we cannot do for you are find a partner (you've got that covered) and get a marriage license in New Hampshire. Learn more at

We are a welcoming, rainbow network, color-blind, child and pet friendly facility. We nurture and support positivity!

As hosts and event coordinators (and Sheila is a Justice of the Peace), we will work with you every step of the way to help make your day as magical as you envision. We look forward to being of service. We love celebrations!

Many couples want that special alone, private, cocoon time in which to relax and enjoy their new status. A luxury bed and breakfast in the White Mountains overlooking a pristine lake is a good choice for making memories. At Coppertoppe we appreciate and pamper all our guests, as we always have. Gender, race, creed, species or country of origin is not relevant to our love or care. We welcome humans and pets with equal enthusiasm. Our honeymoon packages include lodging, breakfasts, snacks, beverages, flowers, treats (chocolate or whatever they like) and concierge service for outdoor activities, massages, Reiki, dog training, art classes or any resources available. Guests have access to a huge library of books, movies, music, games, puzzles and toys. Coppertoppe is convenient to big-name musical events, community theatres, farm markets, festivals, fairs, boating, golfing, skiing and much more. Only a couple of hours from Boston, but a million miles from city life, Coppertoppe and the Newfound Lake region are a wonderful option for serene, romantic honeymoons.
