I’m looking for some suggestions on rustic or unique wedding venues in the CT or New York (westchester/hudson valley) area for about 200 people. I live in lower Fairfield County so anywhere within 1.5 hours would work! I love Roundhouse at Beacon Falls – the waterfall room is amazing but my FH isn’t wild about the surrounding area. My other favorite was Latitude 41 in Mystic, CT. I know the photos will be gorgeous in Mystic but the actual room where the reception just feels a lititle off to me. Does anyone has any similar recommendations?! Typical wedding factories feel very generic and impersonal to me! Thanks in advance 🙂

- Wedding: Shadow Lawn in High Falls, NY
What’s your budget? I’m looking for the same thing and would like to stay under $30K for everything day-of (venue, food, alcohol, music, flowers, etc.) but it’s beginning to seem hopeless. I agree with you about Latitute in Mystic. We drove out there from NYC and sadly the place didn’t have the same feel in person as you’d think fromthe photos 🙁

If you like the Mystic Area you should check out Saltwater Farm Vineyard. It’s a vineyard and winery at an old airplane hanger. The grounds are spectacular.

Mystic village is also a great place and there is more than one option depending on capacity.

My parents married 35 years ago at Tappen Hill Mansion. DH and I recently went to a 300 person wedding there.

msvintagect: My finace and I visited Saltwater and LOVED it. I just can’t get myself to justify their site fee ($12,000 in peak season). But that is the exact look I’m going for!

Branford House is a bit far but gorgeous; Eolia Mansion; Cranbury Park. Did you try Jonathan Edwards Winery? I think they are a bit cheaper. There’s also the lace factory.

lorsfor: I’m getting married at Mystic Seaport but not at the River Room at Latitude 41, mine will be at the boat shed. I’m not sure if it will hold 200 (150 may be the limit but you could check) but it’s an outside but basically covered structure within Mystic Seaport. I love it because it’s right on the river and has an awesome crushed seashell floor. I choose it because it’s not like your typical banquet/factory wedding type venue.
Also check out Lighthouse Point in New Haven. You can have an outdoor ceremony and then there’s a nice building with a carrousel for the reception. The pictures I saw there were georgous.

Curlycupcake: I took a look at the boat shed – it’s so unique and beautiful!! You’re going to have such amazing photos there! I felt like the space might be tight for 200 🙁

It sounds like The Lace Factory in Deep River would be a good bet for you.
