Check out the Guilford Yacht Club. We really liked it but they max they can fit is 170 so it was a little to small for us. They have a beautiful front lawn overlooking the sound.

What about Amarantes in New Haven?  Sounds like it could be just what you’re looking for.  I haven’t been there yet but some good friends are getting married there in 3 weeks;

@TTReverie:  I’m having my wedding next June at Mystic Seaport.  It’s not on the “coast” but it is on the Mystic River.  They have two venue options.  One is the open air boat shed (this is for a more relaxed wedding) and the other is the River Room at Latitude 41.  Both have options for ceremony by the water.

Here are some pics:

@TTReverie:  In the River Room.  We also rented the North Lawn (if you don’t they can have a wedding on the lawn and if you just rent the lawn they can have a wedding in the River Room so you have to get both if you want to be the only wedding- it was about $2500 to rent the lawn but we are taking full advantage of it…having lawn games and all during cocktail hour after the ceremony).  I originally wanted the Boatshed but it wasn’t going to be large enough for us.  It is really unique and different.  Ooooo…I hope you fall in love with it!  The views are amazing!

Things to consider though with the boatshed:  1). The distance your guests have to walk to the boatshed 2). Bathrooms 3). Your hideaway before the wedding 4). Dance floor (I can’t remember if they provide it or it’s extra) 5). Time of year- it’s open air so no A.C. 6). Rentals (again cant remember what they provide for it)

Good Luck and be sure to let me know how it goes!
