Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Elegant, European manor-style venue tucked among verdant lawns and lush woodlands just minutes from Branford, CT's scenic shoreline. Photo ops abound here: steal a kiss under the sweeping willow tree or pose in the glow of the twinkle-lit trees after the sun goes down.
  • Ceremonies are magical on the beautiful grounds—you can choose a spot by the gazebo, in front of the waterfall, or in the picturesque gardens. Continue the party in the state-of-the-art wedding reception spaces, which can be easily transformed to reflect your personal vision.
  • The catering is topnotch, provided by Chef Silvio Suppa, the renowned Executive Chef and owner of Café Allegre of Madison. His signature cuisine has earned him a well-deserved reputation as one of the finest chefs in Connecticut.
