Dreaming of a Bookish Wedding?

Updated: Apr 23

So you got the ring...

Now it's time to plan the fun stuff! Are you a book nerd? A quirky fan of literature and fantasy? Don't settle for a traditional pastel-covered bridal shower, or the predictable outdoor engagement photo shoot. Make your special day as unique and fabulous as you are! Create your memory in a space that matches your own quirky selves.

The Storyteller's Cottage offers the perfect wedding-related destination for the book nerds out there, complete with themed decor that will make your photos and events unlike all others. Are you Steampunk lovers, or Harry Potter fans, or maybe you do like a classic, romantic setting, but with a stylish vintage flair? Choose from one or all of our literary-themed rooms to set your photos or celebrate your occasion. See all of our private event options here.

Still unsure the space is right for your special day? Don't worry, we have put together a little gallery of inspiration below for your engagement party, shower or even the big day...

The Bookish Engagement

Pick from any one of our unique literary-themed spaces to have a memorable proposal unlike any other.

Alice in Wonderland Shower

Planning a spring shower with the girls? Our English Country Kitchen is covered in pinks and vintage floral prints. Have your very own Mad Hatter-inspired tea party with treats and tea in our mismatched vintage tea cups.

Steampunk Wedding

Our Jules Verne Steampunk Library offers a classy, dark ambiance with low lighting and a cozy fireplace, perfect for mingling and sipping champagne. We can even play your choice of music on our speaker system so you can dance the night away with your partner and closest friends.

Elegant Vintage Wedding

Our Jane Austen Salon is the perfect backdrop for your intimate wedding dinner. Whether you have a pot-luck meal prepared by your loved ones, or one of the fabulous local caterers, you can enjoy casual elegance by flickering candlelight or the shimmer of the crystal chandelier. We even offer rental of our vintage china collection so you don't need to travel with your own! We can accommodate up to 49 people in the house.

How do you choose just one of these fabulous spaces? You don't have to! We also offer a whole-house rental option so you can enjoy them all. $300/hour includes the use of all six rooms (upstairs & downstairs), the kitchen, two bathrooms (one handicapped accessible), free parking and exterior ramp at the back door.  A staff member from the Storyteller's Cottage will be present during the rental.
