"Hello, I recently attended a wedding at your lovely establishment! It was the Sullivan/Rushlow wedding on Sat. July 7th. I have to tell you that I have never been to a more beautiful wedding. Your place is like a fairy tale and the grounds, people, structures, food, everything was perfect! You should be proud of the little bit of dream land you've created...I took a beautiful picture of your property,(specifically the sunset) and was told by many, many people to send it to you...I will spread the word about your place...it is a 5 star in every respect of the word. Sincerely, Patty Hitchcock, North Attleboro, Mass. WELL DONE!"
"Dear Ann and Harold,
We would like to express our gratitude to both of you. We could not have had a more perfect site for our wedding reception than Five Bridge Farm! Your place looked so beautiful... the tents, the grounds, the lighting, and the decorations! We loved every aspect of our reception, but the location was by far the most appealing. It was a pleasure doing business with you and we so enjoyed our stay in your home. Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality and kindness. We really appreciated all of your time , effort and hard work in making our wedding day such a special occasion. We were also so delighted to receive our gift certificate for a night's stay and the Inn. What a wonderful surprise! We look forward to seeing you both again soon. Sincerely, Nathan and Alison Jones"
"Dear Harold and Anne,
When our son, Matthew and our daughter in law, Elisabeth, were married there June 16th, they knew they made the right choice. It was everything they were looking for. It truly felt like "paradise". The house and the grounds were just beautiful. The love and care you put into your property was reflected everywhere -- from the inside rooms to the outside plantings, the gardens, the pool, the gazebos -- something everywhere you looked. No wonder we were so relaxed.
The tent was absolutely elegant and so spacious. We were all thrilled with everything, and we know the guests will long remember Five Bridge Inn as we will.
We also want to thank you for all you did to help make Matt and Bess's wedding a perfect day. Anne - it was so nice of you to cut and arrange flowers from your garden for the memorial vase. It meant so much to us. And thank you. Harold for the CD of pictures. They came out great. It was very thoughtful of you.
When the reception was over, it was so nice to have such a comfortable room right there. What a joy to wake up and still be in heaven. After the delicious breakfast, and our visit with you and your mother, and spending a little more time enjoying the place, we found it difficult to leave.
We look forward to coming back as bed and breakfast guests. - Sincerely, Marty & Sheily Langlier"

We were so delighted with our experience at Five Bridge Inn - it was a fairy tale from the moment we stepped off the trolly!

We can't thank you enough for the beautiful wedding you gave Kate & Tom. My phone is still ringing off the hook from family and friends telling us they had never been to a wedding like that and what a wonderful time they had. - Love Ellen & Tom"

"Dear Ann and Harold,
I recently photographed the wedding of Jen & Mat Ferrara at the Five Bridge Inn. Your property is a photographer's paradise. There were so many picturesque areas that I would have loved to utilize, however, I truly believe that the day belongs to the bride and groom and try very hard not to keep them from their guests any longer than necessary. The wedding was beautiful and having your Inn as a background made my images incredible. - Sincerely Karen Casey Ward"
"Dear Harold & Ann,
Thank you so much for providing us with a beautiful venue for our wedding. The tent was excellent, the rooms were great. Thank you for being so courteous, and for providing a nice brunch the morning after. Everyone had a great time and we received many compliments about Five Bridge. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends. We really appreciate all you did to make our day special. - Kenny & Mindy Theroux"
Dear Ann and Harold,
I wanted to personally thank you for making Lara and Andrew Schwarz day so perfect. From arriving for the rehearsal to leaving Sunday after brunch, I could not have asked for anything more for my daughter's wedding weekend/ You gifted everyone with your hospitality and your talent for truly making the day you always dream of. You have been blessed with a wonderful gift and I thank you for letting the Greenwood and Schwarz families benefit with your gift. I am eternally grateful to you both for all you did for us and for all you do for all couples on "their day". Thank you again - Jane Greenwood
Our day was beyond perfect! Bar none, the best day of our lives. We owe that to you and Five Bridge Inn. Everything was just lovely. Our guests raved about the venue, the grounds the atmosphere and privacy that the property offers. We have an uncle who lives just down the road and never knew that Five Bridge was there as a wedding venue (be on the lookout for his recently engaged niece!)
Thank you so much for all of your hard work and all that you did for us that day with organization and set up. From the moment I arrived with my girls to get ready until the very last dance later that night everything was like a fairy tale come true; so much more than I ever imagined. When I saw the tent set up for the first time that morning, it was so beautiful I actually started crying! The whole day just flew by! It was so nice to go through the pictures and see it all again - it was like reliving the day.
Love, Mel & Brendan
"Harold & Ann,

People are still commenting how beautiful your home is. Your help and generosity with out special day were greatly appreciated. Best wishes and many thanks, Tina and Christopher Saunders"
"To you both we will always be grateful. We were so touched by the strong desire you had to make this gay so special for us! The tremendous effort you put into the preparations preceding the wedding were so evident in the beauty that radiated from Five Bridge Farm on August 15th! There will be forever in out memories the most beautiful picture painted of Five Bridge Farm. It will always hold a very special place in our heart as will the two of you! You are 2 wonderful people and we'll always be so thankful for all that you did to make our dreams a reality! We are very much looking forward to returning for a visit. I'm sure it will be the first of many return visits to a very special place for us! - Love, Kathleen and Andy"
Dear Ann and Harold,
Anthony and I wanted to thank you very much for all of your hard work and dedication for our wedding on July 25, 2009 at the Five Bridge Inn. You have such a beautiful and unique home and we were so blessed to be able to have our wedding blessing and reception on your property. You really went above and beyond to satisfy us and make sure that we were comfortable in your home. We enjoyed being able to spend the day/evening there and couldn't believe how hospitable you were for us and our guests. Everyone loved the scenery at the Inn and couldn't believe how quaint and attractive all the amenities were. Likewise, all the rooms in your home have such char, and we were all comfortable and enjoyed spending the evening after the wedding. We truly could not have asked for a better place to have our wedding!
Ann, thank you for all that you did to make the evening go so smooth. You did such a nice job keeping on top of our vendors to make sure that everything went well. You are so pleasant and accommodating and we couldn't be more pleased with how everything turned out. Between the sunny weather, delicious food and drinks, dancing , beautiful surroundings and being with all of our supportive and caring friends and family members, it was a perfect day for the two of us. It truly will be a day we will never forget! Sincerely, Anthony and Suzanne Ward-Smith
Dear Ann and Harold,
We cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you did to make our wedding the special event that it was. You guys were always available and had the answers to challenging situations. You kept us calm and focused when we were being crazy bride and groom. Thank you so very much for being amazing!
Sincerely, Carmella & Marco
P.S. Thank Maryellen for the yoga class I did the morning of the wedding, it was just what the doctor ordered!!
Dear Ann and Harold,
Eric and I returned from our honeymoon yesterday morning, and I wanted to be sure to email you as soon as possible to thank you for absolutely everything relating to our August 7th wedding. All throughout our trip, we received countless messages from family and friends commenting on everything about our wedding day-so many people absolutely loved the Five Bridge Inn and remarked over and over again that they could not believe that they had never heard of it before! The grounds were gorgeous as always, but especially so as the location for our wedding photos. Getting ready in your beautiful inn with my bridesmaids was such a great time. And I have to say, the tent was the perfect canvas for my year’s worth of do-it-yourself ideas. I was so excited, and totally flattered, to see photos of our blue and yellow colors on your website-what a compliment! Your attention, kind advice, willingness to have us visit the Five Bridge Inn over and over throughout the last year to plan for our big day, and everything about the entire experience was absolutely priceless to us. We truly cannot thank you both enough. When we sit down years from now looking at our wedding album and reminiscing over everything from our perfect day, I can guarantee that we will think of the Five Bridge Inn fondly, and always be glad that we chose it as the location for our wedding.
Sincerely, and with great thanks, Tracy and Eric Tracey
Ann & Harold,
My wife and I wanted to take a brief moment to thank you for playing such a significant part of the best day of our lives. We wanted to have a unique and original setting, and from the moment we first visited the Inn, we knew that we had found our site. You take impeccable care of your home, and it truly shows - even now, two months later, friends and family are still talking about the Five Bridge Inn!
From the moment we booked our date, it was wonderful to coordinate our Big Day with you. Every question was answered with a smile and authentic excitement. It's clear that you genuinely enjoy what you do, and your enthusiasm is infectious. With all of the stress that goes into planning a wedding, it was incredibly reassuring to collaborate with professionals such as you two. We always knew we were in good hands.
The house is beautiful and the views (especially the fall foliage) are breathtaking. Our photographers were smitten with all of the colors and natural backdrops! We were given free reign from the moment we arrived on Friday morning to the time we left on Sunday afternoon. We were allowed to custom design everything, from the ceremony décor to the reception floor plan and everything in between. So many venues have one or two pre-planned options to choose from. The beautiful part of the Inn is that we truly personalized every single aspect of our wedding. We can't think of any other site that would allow us such freedom.
What we especially appreciated is that you have covered all angles, and you truly have thought of every possible contingency. It got a bit chilly, so you pumped in heat. Our extra rehearsal dinner food was donated to a shelter. After the wedding, our flowers went to a nursing home. It's very touching that you still find a way to give back to the community during the madness of organizing a wedding. Additionally, breakfast was delicious the next morning!
Finally, we greatly appreciated your gift certificate that allows us to stay a night at the Inn in the future. You'll definitely be seeing us in the coming years!
Rest assured we will be telling anyone and everyone who will listen about the wonderful services you've provided for us The Five Bridge Inn will forever hold a special place in our memories, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Sincerely, Craig & Sandy Barry
If we didn't say it enough yesterday, THANK YOU! It was a perfect day for our family. The Inn and the event have been getting rave reviews from all of our guests. Phone calls started Sunday afternoon. Our photographer is so impressed, that she is adding your site to her blog telling people to book it! I hope you get to keep for yourselves some of the happiness you gave us.
Thank you again, David Finkelstein
We cannot say enough great things about the Five Bridge Inn. It's such a beautiful location - the house and the grounds. We highly recommend choosing the Five Bridge Inn as your wedding location!! I don't think we could say it enough. There are so many possibilities since you pay a flat-rate for the site and it includes use of the grounds from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning (assuming a Saturday wedding), all of the Inn's rooms the night before the wedding and the Bridal Suite the night of the wedding for the Bride and Groom.
This location can be especially fun for a bride and groom that wants even more than the wedding experience. The Five Bridge Inn has even more to offer - wellness services, tennis court, pool, walking trails and fitness center. It's a hidden treasure!
Five Bridge Inn was an absolutly phenomonal place to get married! I can not say enough about how amazing Ann is. The grounds are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. I had use of the grounds from Friday to Sunday AM and it was more than I could have ever imagined. There is a salon and everything! Every guest was blown away. One family member who is from out of the country said this was like what you see in the movies!
Five Bridge Inn helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives! The beautiful grounds and gardens helped set the setting for a gorgeous ceremony & reception. We had a Saturday wedding and had the grounds all weekend which was helpful with the extensive set up we had. Ann and Harold were very accommodating with our every request (they even moved the bar location for us at the last minute!) Our day of coordinator also later raved about their hospitality. We had a large guest count and the expansive property and grounds were perfect for our guests to move about and enjoy the day. Since we had the property to ourselves, we were able to host an all day and night affair which our friends and family just loved! Many of our guests commented throughout the reception (and to this day) that the property was just absolutely beautiful and it was the best reception they had attended. We would highly recommend Five Bridge Inn to any future couple!Hey Ann and Harold
Finally back in Switzerland but still thinking about the fantastic two days at yours. We enjoyed every second, you can be so proud of your home, your service and your attitude. As we travel a lot all over the world we think to know what can be called good stuff. Thanks Harold for the great chat we had. Alejandro will keep a very good memory of the lamas! Thanks so much.
Best regards, Kayum Liz and Alejandro
Last month I had the privilege of – and a lot of fun – photographing the wedding of my cousin, Madeleine, and her husband Matt at the Five Bridge Inn in Rehoboth, Mass. The two met while working with Teach for America after college, and over the years managed to merge their personal and professional paths, landing in Boston, where they are both finishing doctoral degrees at Harvard. It was great being there to document this moment in their lives, and even more special as it was a family affair, with multiple generations of relatives convening from different corners of the country for the first time in years. At first I was a little worried that they were planning an outdoor wedding as autumn was setting in across New England. Though, as a Los Angeles resident, I was looking forward to getting a little dose of fall for nostalgia’s sake. They must have known something the rest of us didn’t though, as the weather miraculously spiked on the day of the wedding, from a chilly low 60′s to an idyllic 80 degrees. By 4 o’clock the open shade on the property’s sprawling lawn couldn’t have been a more perfect place to gather. And as the day turned to night, the heaters, prepped to bring the reception tent to a comfortable temperature on a chilly October night, were left in the off position. The wedding was a family affair through and through, with the siblings and parents and cousins of the bride and groom pitching in to decorate, using an assortment of wildflowers picked the day before for the bride’s bouquet and as table decorations, and creatively using fresh apples to mark the tables for seating assignments. These elements came together wonderfully to create an autumn in the country vibe that was perfect for this rural setting. Matt’s father and a colleague also treated everyone to a live saxophone and piano rendition of the Beatles classic, “In My Life.” Following the ceremony and a poolside, sunset cocktail hour, everyone gathered beneath the large tent on the grounds for dinner, dancing and and some touching toasts. The bride and groom were smart in having everyone join them on the floor immediately following their first dance, setting a festive tone for the rest of the evening. As the reception came to a close the dance floor was still full, with everyone from young cousins to great uncles out there shaking a leg. For some of us, the unseasonably warm night was still young, so we headed to downtown Providence for an after party at a local brewery, where we wound down the night. Overall, it was a perfect day of family and friends coming together to celebrate this momentous moment in their lives. Glad I was there. Best of luck to both of them!
Thank you so very much for everything you did to help us leading up to our big day and on the day. If we searched the whole world, we couldn't have found a more perfect venue for our wedding than the Five Bridge Inn. - John & Clionagh
Hi Ann, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the most amazing wedding weekend we could have ever imagined! I still can not stop thinking about how perfect everything was! Not only is your venue absolutely amazing, but your hospitality and generosity is unlike anything I have ever experienced! Scott and I do not have one bad thing to say about the entire weekend, and our guests don't either. Raves about our wedding and the venu keep flooding in, and you can't forget about the food, not just Ralphs, but your breakfast as well! We have never felt more comfortable and welcome in a place like we felt in yours. You truly allowed for us to the have the absolute most perfect weekend of our lives. Thank you so much for everything! We will never ever forget our wedding.
Ann & Harold are absolutely the best hosts anyone could ask for! They've opened up their beautiful home to weddings and I couldn't have been happier! Everything about the weekend felt so perfect!! Besides the lovely grounds and beautiful setting, Ann & Harold made us feel so welcome that everything on my wedding day was a bit less stressful knowing that everything was under control. Couldn't have been happier.
