This may not be too helpful of a post, but I’ll try!  First off, I think I heard that this kind of thing is easier to do in R.I., but I’m not sure where or why I heard that :o)  Secondly, the only beach that comes to mind for me is Rocky Neck, which I think is part of a state park.  It has a nice long beach (calm though and shalllow, some kind of sound I think) but also grassy lawns and a historic building (very beautiful). Unfortunately, I don’t know any of the specifics regarding rentals, etc.  Ooorrr Bluff Point could be an option, I think there is variety there too in that there are buildings AND grass AND beach.  I personally am getting married at Avery Point (at the Branford House, a historic mansion on the grounds of one of Uconn’s branches), but it is all lawn, not sand, directly on the water (and they book way ahead!).  All of these places are in Eastern Connecticut.  I can get more information for you, if you’re interested!  Good luck and happy engagement!

We’re getting married at SoundWaters at Cove Island Park, Stamford.  It’s definitely more of a DIY sort of thing since they normally don’t host weddings, but do host other kinds of events.  It’s a nice big old Federalist style house near the water.  Small venue though– can only host 60.

Hi Yazi!

 Don’t know if you’re still looking, or maybe this will help out someone else in the future, but I have a great option in Fairfield County.

 Penfield Beach Pavillions are in Fairfield, CT.  They have two different pavillions, and you bring in everything yourself.  The rental fees are really reasonable too.

You can visit this website to see some pictures and their rental fees/how to book.
