Just got engaged… looking for a fall 2014 wedding venue. We are open to most weekends in Sept- mid November… It’s scary how so many are already filled up!! Thinking about Old Lyme—Stonington, somewhere near the water (LI Sound or river OK), and must be near (or in) a major hotel and have capacity of up to 200…. any CT brides out there able to lend a hand with this girl’s venue hunt?? Thanks!!

I used to live in New London and when we we looking for venues we we scoping out the same area! Saltwater Farm Vinyard is very pretty but pricy in Stonington. The Bee and Thistle Inn is the same in Old Lyme. You could always go with the Harkness or Branford Mansions in Waterford or Groton. Then there’s the ballroom at Ocean Beach which has really nice views. If you’re looking for a hotel wedding, I’ve been to lots of events at the Mystic Marriott. Ive also heard of people getting married at the Groton Inn and Suites although I cant vouch for them. There’s also the Mystic Inn, although I don’t think that they can hold 200 people! We looked at Great Neck Country Club which has a lovely ballroom and porch (unfortunately there just wasn’t a great place to get married there). Oh and the Eugene O’Neill Theater will rent out part of its barns and house for events. Ive been there for a wedding and it was gorgeous. Hmmm, I’ll keep thinking I know that there are more places. Good luck!
