Situated amid over one-hundred acres of pristine forest in the heart of the Green Mountains, SVAC offers first-class service and arts culture in a traditional New England setting.

The Southern Vermont Arts Center is truly a unique setting for your wedding celebration. 

Set on Mount Equinox, the grounds of the Southern Vermont Arts Center offers breath-taking views, as well as beautiful botanical paths, an enclave of Bradford Pear trees, a sculpture garden, and vast meadows and fields for your guests to meander through.

The Yester House Gallery, a historic 1917 Georgian revival mansion is the jewel in the crown of the Arts Center’s campus. The 28- room National Register of Historic Places mansion was built as a “country cottage,” a place to get away from the hurly-burly of Manhattan.  The Yester House Gallery’s grand staircase and ten beautiful galleries is a perfect backdrop to an intimate rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, cocktails and elegant sit down dinner. The beautiful space features hardwood floors, red walls, a Grand piano and fireplace.

The largest in Vermont, SVAC’s stunning Sculpture Park and Gardens provide a mix of culture and contemplation for art-lovers. With commanding views of the Green and Taconic Mountains in all directions, the Park has perfect spots for a gorgeous wedding backdrop.

The Elizabeth de C. Wilson Museum,  designed by noted architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen, is an exquisite venue for the couple who is looking for a modern backdrop for their wedding.

The Arkell Pavilion is a 400 seat acoustical gem without equal. A former barn, the Pavilion was completely restored in 2000. You can transform this incredible space into a nightclub for you and your guests to dance the night away.

The multiple locations around the property ensure every bride has everything she needs for a successful wedding day. Celebrate your romance at the Southern Vermont Arts Center.
