I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to those of you who do not already know me. My name is Kathleen DeVitto and I have had the pleasure of being The Wentworth’s Sales/Wedding Administrator for the past 4+ years. I am one of the very few people out there who can actually say they enjoy what they do on a day to day basis. Who wouldn’t enjoy meeting happy bridal couples and hearing their love story?

This is by far my favorite time of the year. With the kids out playing in the water and the sun beaming on my face while I watch the vactioners have a great time relaxing, how can you not love summer in The White Mountains. I say to myself quite often, “imagine you actually get to live here”. What could be better? Easy……my job
Summer is the season of the weddings and we have a wedding scheduled every weekend until the middle of November here at The Wentworth. I absolutely love working with all my bridal couples. I have, by far, the best job in the hotel. It’s happiness all the time. So far we’ve had about 6 weddings this year. All are very different in their own way but each just as beautiful as the next. The little details, creativity and personalization that goes into planning a wedding has always been my joy. The vendors my brides choose have been amazing. A “must see” is the work of Carrie from Dutch Bloemen Winkel, a local florist here in Jackson as well as the work of some photographers like Meg Simone, Jay Philbrick or Anne Skidmore.
Fridays are great here at the hotel. The bridal couple has checked in and friends and family fill up the inn with laughter and warm greetings. The back office transforms into a wedding wonderland with all the welcome baskets, card boxes, favors and decorations. Usually there is some sort of a Welcome Reception on Friday night and typically in the summer months it is a low key fun filled BBQ on the back deck. Saturday is always such a beautiful day. Everyone dressed in their best and the tent transforms into a page from a catalog. The brides, gorgeous, all of them! It’s a bitter sweet moment for me. All of our hard work coming together and seeing the guests and bridal couples reaction is wonderful but I know that this will be the last day I get to work with them. Bitter sweet indeed. Bonds are formed and some even turn into long lasting friendships.
Oh, the joys of summer and weddings in The White Mountains!
The Wentworth has been honored to be chosed as an Editor’s Pick for the New Hampshire’s Magazine Best of Bride 2010 for our use of Local Foods.
“If you order a green salad at The Wentworth, www.thewentworth.com in Jackson Village, chances are the ingredients were grown right in the inn’s garden. And that is not all – the Chefs but their produce, meat, fish and cheese from local and regional vendors when possible.
This is indeed a great honor and we are very proud of our achievement.
Finally!! After all the preparation and anticipation, wedding season is finally underway and in full force. No signs of slowing down….just how we like it!
Last weekend we had a beautiful wedding with an even more beautiful bride. After enjoying a delicious dinner for their rehearsal on Friday night here in the hotel, Valerie and Evan amazed their guests on Saturday with an elegant cocktail reception, exquisite dinner and a fun filled evening of entertainment and dancing in our lobby. So much fun was had by all.
