Your wedding plans are of the utmost importance to us, and we want to assure you that we are staying abreast of all facts daily. We also want to ensure you that we support you and any choice you make in lieu of the current situation.
Currently, we are actively postponing 2020 weddings that were in June, July, & August to 2021. We are also actively working with new 2021 clients who are booking their wedding.

We have complied a list of the most common FAQ’s:
1. How will Coronavirus affect my wedding?
We are continually monitoring the situation by listening to the current guidelines that the CDC and the Vermont Governor are giving us. At this time your wedding counts may be affected, depending on what date your wedding is on. Currently, we are being told events of only 10 people are allowed. Vermont is in a phased-in approach and they are in hopes to raise those numbers every two weeks if the pandemic curve stays intact.
2. Should I still go ahead and book my wedding for 2021?
Absolutely, we are still getting bookings for the end of 2020 and 2021 onwards. We are confirming wedding bookings in select destinations up until 2022 so you can still book ahead and get your date confirmed.
5. What are my options for postponing my wedding?
Should you postpone your event with JWE we are offering no postponement fees for non-prime wedding weekends. Prime wedding weekends are Aug 10th-Oct 10th. Should you want a prime weekend you can choose that with us, but applicable fees would apply. We are working with your vendor teams and most are also postponing with no fees for non-prime weekends.
