Connecticut Wedding Venues – My Favorites
The options are unlimited when it comes to Connecticut Wedding Venues. One of the aspects I love so much about this beautiful New England state. From gorgeous wineries, to rustic barns, glamorous mansions and waterfront views, I am sharing a few of my favorite Connecticut places to say ‘I Do’.
Saltwater Farm Vineyard: The views are just beyond stunning and there is unlimited choice for both outdoors and in. What use to be an old hanger plane airport, this CT wedding venue can be transformed for both a modern or vintage celebration. Guests can enjoy the rows of vines while enjoying delicious wine made right on site. The owners of the winery are wonderful to work with and have such a keen eye for detail which always make planning events at Saltwater Farm a wonderful experience. With the charming town of Mystic, CT only ten minutes away there are many wonderful inns, hotels, restaurants and sight seeing for guests to enjoy.

The Lace Factory: A beautiful, unique venue that you will arrive at by train. Guests can enjoy cocktails while traveling on The Essex Steam Train and take in the amazing Connecticut River views on their way to this incredible venue. The food is one of a kind here (the pumpkin bread with cream cheese spread is out of this world!). You can also have Sunday brunch the next day and Tiffany the on site event coordinator always makes us feel so welcome and makes sure we have everything we need from ceremony to reception. The space can be transformed and offers a variety of combinations to make your day uniquely yours.

Eiola Mansion: If you’re in love with the Great Gatsby era the Eiola Mansion is for you. Stunning waterfront views and lush gardens, the grounds are truly breathtaking at this venue. You can have a ceremony in the sunken garden or the lawn and guests can dance under the stars on the patio off the back of the mansion. With regal details, this is one venue where you can bring on all the glam.

The Webb Barn: There is nothing quite like the rustic charm of this lovely barn. Guests are greeted by beautifully landscaped grounds on the drive up to the impressive barn. Walk down to the downtown area of Old Wethersfield perfect for wedding portraits and stop at The Old Country Store for a cupcake, or over to the old fashioned ice cream parlor for a cone. All wonderful spots for some great pictures.
