VENUE SPOTLIGHT: EDITH WHARTON’S THE MOUNT

am so fortunate to live, and work, amid the beauty of the Berkshires. We have so many beautiful places that are perfect for portraits and wedding. 

Today, I wanted to feature one of my favorite venues, The Mount in Lenox, MA. The Mount was Edith Wharton’s home and has been meticulously maintained and preserved. I absolutely love this place! I’ll never get over how breathtaking this estate is, and I always get so excited when I get to return.

I’ve shot numerous weddings at the Mount, including Gabi & Seth’s wedding this past year. I was also featured on Buzzfeed with an image of The Mount in an article: “jaw-dropping venues for book lovers

The truth is that it is absolutely gorgeous in any season, which is one of the reasons I love using it so much. It’s always got something gorgeous to offer, and the stunning visuals make any event perfect—especially weddings and engagement shoots.

Of course, such beauty comes with a price. Couples who have their photos taken onsite need to have a membership to the Mount. There are a few different membership options, so make sure to select the one that works best for you. For example, dual membership costs $130 ($98 is tax deductible); however there is also a new Fellow membership for $40 ($22 is tax deductible) for individuals under the age of 40. For more information and complete details of membership benefits, visit https://www.edithwharton.org/support/membership/

The good news is that the support the membership program gives is what allows the property to continue to be used as such a beautiful remembrance of Edith Wharton’s life.
