Connecticut has classic and beautiful settings for a memorable wedding
Waterfront resorts, rustic inns, and sophisticated hotels in historic Connecticut are ready and able to help you plan the perfect wedding or reunion or other importance celebration gathering. Wedding planning begins with the bridal couple’s preferences. It could be a formal ceremony and reception hall on a sloping lawn or fancy ballroom at a luxury resort on Long Island Sound. Or a small, country wedding at a rustic inn in Litchfield. Or anything that floats your boat (including vows on a yacht followed by a clambake).
Connecticut celebration and wedding venues are staffed by experts who can help you plan the event and provide for every detail: receptions, dinners, lodging for guests, buffet or formal dining, ballrooms for large or small groups, flowers, music, photography -- whatever you may need. Before or after the celebration or wedding day, guests can enjoy golf, swimming pools, spa services
, and other pleasures of Connecticut’s best hosts.
One Haynes Street
Hartford, CT, 06103
Boutique hotel prime venue for chic ceremonies, receptions
Combining a rich 19th-century heritage with a sense of modern urban chic, the Goodwin, Hartford’s boutique hotel, is a glorious backdrop for weddings of any size. Whether you have a guest list of 300 and opt for the Capital Ballroom with its spectacular chandeliers or want a quiet ceremony in a private suite with decorative fireplaces from the original building, the hotel has much to offer. Customizable menus (from artistic hors d’ouevres to sophisticated plated dinners) from the world-class Harlan Brasserie, a staff that attends to your day’s every detail, romantic pre-ceremony, ceremony and reception venues and a complimentary wedding suite with set-aside blocks of rooms make the Goodwin the perfect place to exchange your vows.
One Railroad Avenue
Essex, CT, 06426
Begin Your Life Together In a Memorable Riverside Place
A Connecticut wedding near the banks of the lush, undeveloped Connecticut River, a historic watery boulevard that flows from Long Island Sound to the Canadian border, would be beautiful all by itself. If you add the options of a ceremony or reception on the Mississippi-style riverboat Becky Thatcher or a 1920s-era steam train, you are creating a memorable day and extra-romantic celebration for everyone involved. Essex Steam Train & Riverboat can off those venues, along with an art gallery, event hall, or shaded lawn at the historic Essex station. Fans of historic railroads or river travel would love such a theme, but loving the gorgeous Connecticut countryside is enough all by itself. In-house catering with exceptional menu items is prepared and presented by an attentive staff.
