The Berkshires: The Hidden Gem of Western Massachusetts

The Berkshires: Quaint, stunning, luxurious, friendly, laid-back, welcoming, the list goes on. If you have ever had the opportunity to visit this gorgeous part of Western Massachusetts, you will agree that the area has a lot to offer. We love the Berkshires and all of it's history and charm. From the prestigious gilded-age mansions, to the arts, the music, and to the breathtaking backdrop of the mountainous terrain. It's no wonder we love the opportunity to help our clients attain the wedding of their dreams in such a perfect part of our little state! That's why we are happy to announce that we are now part of the Berkshire Wedding Collective, a carefully curated collection of the finest wedding professionals serving the Berkshires. We've been doing weddings in the Berkshires since 2010 and were asked to join the Lenox Wedding Tour in 2013. We're no strangers to the the area. Growing up nearby, we've always had an affinity for the Berkshires—a perfect wedding destination spot. We love being part of the tour, bringing wedding planners and media from all over the country to this beautiful location.

Our staff was invited to the tour as guests in 2012. Here is a picture from a tablescape we designed at the Lenox Wedding Tour table design challenge.

This wedding season, we are thrilled to be working at Hancock Shaker Village, Jacob's Pillow, along with a few events at private estates. One of our favorite weddings from last fall was held in Egremont at the home on the parents-of-the-groom. Sam and Joy were a joy to work with (yes, pun intended!) and we are so happy we were part of making their wedding day so special!

Joy said: "Ruthie and Lauren of Eutopia Events were AMAZING. Honestly I don't think we would have gotten through the day in the same way without them. I found them to be particularly helpful in managing the anxiety that comes with both planning a wedding and doing it backyard/DIY style. They knew exactly what my vision was and were able to execute it and handle any snags without having to interrupt our day. They were also great with helping me think through many of the issues I had been stuck on throughout the planning process. It was especially nice to know that there was someone there to ask questions to when we needed it and someone there to just handle things in general without having to do it ourselves. Overall, they exceeded our expectations, particularly with the amount of work they put into the actual day. I didn't see them stop once! They were absolutely worth the price and totally saved the day!"

Here are a few pics from their gorgeous Berkshire nuptials from Abby Lorenz Photography. We can't wait to share more with you from this adorable DIY wedding.

If you haven't had a chance to visit the Berkshires, you should plan a little get-a-way to the area. Some of our favorite towns include Lenox, Stockbridge, Becket, Lee, Pittsfield, and North Adams just to name a few. It has so much to offer. It is worth considering as the perfect backdrop for a destination wedding.
