Here in New England, we have some of the most amazing scenery around. But if you're looking to have a gorgeous garden wedding, then you've got to read this blog post showcasing some of the best wedding venues in Connecticut for the outdoor garden wedding of your dreams!
Elizabeth Park & The Pond House Café - West Hartford, CT
Of COURSE this place has to make the list. Elizabeth Park is one of the most amazing rose gardens in all of New England and we're so lucky to have it here in Connecticut. And there are so many amazing ways to incorporate it into your big day. You can have your wedding ceremony and portraits in the garden, with a reception somewhere else. or you can have your ceremony and reception at different locations and stop off at Elizabeth Park for photos, OR you can book the Pond House Cafe as your venue and have your ceremony and reception there and do portraits in the park. To see a full wedding held at this location, check out Allison & Jon's wedding!
Wickham Park - Manchester, CT
Another must-have on the list. Wickham Park has a few different wedding ceremony and reception sites in throughout the park with some nestled in their gardens but perhaps the most well known and popular is the hilltop ceremony site and log cabin that has a stunning view overlooking the city of Hartford. This location is a favorite of mine for both weddings and engagements year round because of all the different flora available in the themed gardens, making it always stunning no matter the season.
The Copper Beech Inn - Ivoryton, CT
This venue is a hidden gem for weddings. It's perfect for a small, intimate wedding with your immediate family and close friends. It's a fabulous inn with unique rooms for getting ready and incredible dining rooms for your cocktail hour and reception. Their landscaped garden is the perfect setting for your garden wedding ceremony, too!
Stay tuned to this post for updates on other great garden locations. I have a few garden weddings coming up at locations that I can't wait to add to this list!
