Garden weddings are in bloom at this coastal inn’s stately mansion
If you have dreamed of a garden wedding, the Inn at Mystic can go you one better: a garden wedding outside a mansion by the sea. The elegant inn, situated on 14 lush green acres overlooking Fishers Island Sound and Mystic Harbor, features the perfect-for-a-wedding Haley Mansion, a breathtaking Colonial Revival mansion atop a hill surrounded not only by flower-scented grounds and gardens but also a meadow pond and a waterfall. An experienced wedding staff and executive chef will help you plan everything from rehearsal dinners to your choices for butler-passed hors d’oeuvres and carving stations or plated dinners, whether your garden wedding is an intimate affair or features 225 guests dancing on the veranda.
This rustic retreat is a gorgeous spot for weddings, every season of the year
Beautiful in all four seasons, LaKota Oaks is the perfect place for your outdoor wedding. Imagine that photo of your wedding party in front of the famous red barn in the winter, or of the bride walking down a rose petal path leading up to the “wedding tree” in the summer. Couples can say their “I do’s” pondside, in a meadow, on a sweeping lawn or on a bridge overlooking ponds and rolling hills. And if you want to head inside for dining and dancing, the spectacular Ferndale Ballroom awaits, with panoramic views of the outdoors. Or maybe you want to chat with a small group of guests on a stone terrace, sipping a custom cocktail. There is not a more beautiful spot for your grand day, nor a more attentive staff to ensure it runs smoothly.

Rustic elegance makes for memorable weddings at this stylish resort
If you have always dreamed of an outdoor wedding, on the grounds of a stylish, rustic resort, consider letting the event planners at The Village at Boulder Ridge help make that dream come true. You can have your ceremony in a white gazebo by the pond (imagine it decorated with flower garlands), then enjoy your wedding feast in an outdoor pavilion that also overlooks the pond and the inviting resort pool. A polite, energetic staff will see to every detail, from recommending cake bakers, florists and DJs to passing hors d’oeuvres and setting up elegant tables for sit-down or buffet dinners. Weddings are limited to only one per day at the 68-acre resort, so every attention will be given to ensuring your day is perfect.
