Real Wedding Spartan Race Style

December 8, 2016

Every wedding is unique, every wedding has its own individual story, but not every wedding has a Spartan story!  Tara and Carl first came to Riverside farm when we hosted the “Spartan Bridal Run,” a competition in which Spartan brides-to-be raced up and down our one mile stone steps to win a wedding reception at Riverside Farm.


A Spartan Wedding?

For those not familiar with Spartan Race, it is a worldwide obstacle racing company with its roots right here in Pittsfield, Vermont.  In fact the founder of Spartan Race and his wife lived here and were the first ones married on our property!  Their wedding left such a positive impression, friends and wedding guests asked to get married at Riverside, and that’s how we became a wedding venue.



The groom with his Spartan Ultra Beast belt buckle, wow!

Tara and Carl didn’t win the Spartan Bride Run, the competition was incredible, but decided they had found the perfect wedding location!

Incredible Wedding Photos!

We hope you enjoy these photos by Hoffer Photography, they truly capture the fun, spirit and personality of this couple!  They made the most of the property over the wedding weekend with a great rehearsal dinner and a morning run up those same stone stairs before their wedding.
