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.
