Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This elegant 19th-century Regency-style estate is surrounded by eight lush acres that include rolling lawns, pretty patios, and breathtaking formal gardens designed by groundbreaking female landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman.
  • Follow your garden ceremony with a stroll in the woodlands' dappled light, enjoying the lush natural beauty of the DCA Bird Sanctuary and its winding trails. Inside the mansion, you'll have access to two dressing areas, and a stately grand staircase makes for a worthy photo-op or first look.
  • Your rental fees help support the efforts of the Darien Community Association (DC), which offers residents priceless opportunities to explore the area’s history and natural resources. The events team here is passionate and experienced, and will work closely with you to fully customize your perfect day.
