I just joined this site and this is my first post. I’m looking for a park/garden venue for my wedding ceremony, which will be in September 2015. We’re planning to elope and just bringing one friend each (plus their spouses) to act as witnesses. I’m looking for a venue for the ceremony and photographs only and then we will go out to dinner afterwards. We plan on spending the wedding weekend near Mystic, CT so we’re looking at the NY/CT area. I thought I had found the perfect spot in Innisfree gardens, but they want $7,000 to hold the ceremony there… $7,000!!!!!!! That is way beyond my budget… I was hoping for somewhere less than $1,000 as it’s only for a ceremony.
I don’t want a very formal, manicured garden… I prefer something that looks a bit wilder. The best way I can think to describe where I want to be married is somewhere that looks like a woodland dell… a little stream wouldn’t go amiss either. Here is a link to Innisfree gardens so you’ll see what I’m thinking of: http://www.innisfreegarden.org/
I’m not from the area originally and I’d really appreciate any help or suggestions.
