I’m so excited about a CT forum.
I am getting married, 9/19/09 in North (not New) Canaan in Litchfield county on the family land.
If anyone has suggestions for caterers or photographers, I would love the help. I’m planning this from Philadelphia and I have to maximize what ever time I take to go up and plan.
Best wished to all of you CT brides. You picked great places for your weddings.

We booked KM Photography based in Clinton, CT.
They were really down to earth and you get two photographers for the price of one!

I just got engaged 3 weeks ago and am now starting to plan a May/June 2009 wedding. My Fiance is from CT and all of his family is there, so we’re in the process of looking at venues in CT.
I live in NYC and am from Virginia, so any suggestions on locations would be appreciated.
Let the countdown begin! (if only I knew the count… :P)

I’m getting married Oct. 4, 2008 at the Keeler Tavern Museum in Ridgefield.
Rachel–I want to have a bagpiper too! I haven’t started looking for one yet, though. I feel like I’m woefully behind in booking vendors. 🙁

Where is CT are you looking at? I am sure we could throw out some ideas if we knew which part of the state you want to be in.

Looks like you’re the closest to me so far! North Stonington is nearby our wedding local- Groton! Yea! Interested in any recc’s you have to offer in the way of vendors, etc.!
Doesn’t it sometimes feel like NOBODY but you is getting married in our little state? Either that or EVERYBODY you know, right? ;o)

I’m an unengaged bee, but wanted to introduce myself none the less! I’m from southeastern CT, and was so happy to hear that two of you are using Avery Point and Jonathan Edwards — two beautiful locations!
Congratulations to all!

Hi everyone. My cousin is addicted to this site and I thought it was finally time to post. I’m getting married at The Amber Room Colonnade in Danbury in September of 2009. My fiance and I went to about 30 wedding venues so we definitely saw a lot of places (but not near Hartford and not too many in Stamford and none past Branford but we did look up Route 8 to about Waterbury).
Our first choice was actually Woodwinds but since they wouldn’t add things to their contract, I took my business elsewhere. All I wanted was a place with a white gazebo. Although The Amber Room is renovating their gazebo and it better be done by next year.
I guess I’ll be busy reading suggestions off this site! Take care.

I live in Boston but am getting married on June 26th at the Eolia Mansion at Harkness Memorial.
If anyone can give me tips on a florist and hair/makeup (both with reasonable prices!) I would love you forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also as an add on to the post I just made…
Its really important to my Fiance to have a minister perform our ceremony (that will be at harkness) Does anyone know of someone connected to a church that will perform a ceremony somewhere other than a church?
And since I’m not from the area I was also wondering if someone could give me some hotel options where I could reserve rooms. I was told to book a hotel off of Exit 75 on I95 but the only "hotel" I could find was a 15 room motel. (Not enough rooms and looked a bit less than wonderful) I’ve tried google searches and they’re only giving me hotels closer to New London but its more confusing to get to the Mansion from there.
Are there hotels off exit 75 that does room blocks that I just didn’t see?
