Connecticut is such a dreamy place to get married. So many of the wedding venues in Connecticut have a sense of seclusion and privacy that many of the other New England estate wedding venues compete to offer. Here are a few of the best wedding venues in Connecticut.

Eolia Mansion at Harkness State Park

Waterford, Connecticut

Connecticut has some of the most beautiful state parks you can ask for, and this state park happens to have a sophisticated mansion called Eolia. Their website is a little outdated, but I can promise you that they have a venue you’ll want to visit as you plan your Connecticut wedding.

Wheatleigh Hotel

Lenox, Massachusetts

The Wheatleigh Hotel (I’m swooning just over the name) is an extraordinary Italian mansion. It was built as a wedding gift for Henry H. Cook’s daughter. It was supposed to be a ‘summer cottage.’ More than 150 artisans traveled from Europe to craft this intricate estate. Technically it’s about 40 minutes north of Connecticut, but it’s worth the drive!

Wheatleigh Hotel Features

  • 22 acres surrounded by mountains and lakes
  • 19 sophisticated suites to house your guests in
  • A mix of antique and contemporary furnishings

Selecting Your Connecticut Wedding Venue

I know it can be overwhelming deciding which venue is best for you. If possible, I always recommend visiting the location and making a date out of it. Pick the venue that feels like you — that you could see yourself visiting every anniversary as you celebrate your love.
