  • Blithewold was a joy to work with from the very beginning until we sadly had to cancel due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our daughter's summer wedding at Blithewold was not to be. Amid all the stress and disappointment associated with 'unwinding' a wedding, Blithewold was professional and gracious.
