Weddings in Connecticut are some of the most picture-perfect and incredible events ever captured. Spend a few minutes online browsing photos and you’ll see the kind of breathtaking images and scenery we’re talking about.
There are so many wedding styles and options that fit all desires here in the Nutmeg state! Perhaps one of the most breathtaking is a wedding that takes place at a mansion.
Talk about truly feeling like royalty on your big day! Mansion weddings combine history and elegance with romance and exclusivity that are truly one of a kind.
Mansions are usually grand estates with ballrooms, gorgeous grounds, and architectural features like spiral staircases, vaulted ceilings, and hilltop lawns that just make the grandeur of the whole event that much more breathtaking — like a scene straight out of a fairytale.
Here in Connecticut, Wadsworth Mansion is a premier estate for mansion weddings. It was built back in 1900 by Colonel Clarence S. Wadsworth and at one time, had over 600 acres as part of the property. The family spent summers and springs at the mansion until the late 1940s. In 1994 the Estate became the City of Middletown’s property and has undergone painstaking renovations – returning it to its glorious appeal.
It’s a popular wedding venue for brides across the Tri-state area because of its central location and because it’s such an expansive property and can accommodate up to 200 attendees.
The elegant country estate is a Beaux Arts-style mansion and has a vibe from the 1900s and the Gilded Age – a time in history at the turn of the 20th Century when many in the U.S. became extraordinarily wealthy and luxuriousness was at the forefront.
All of this and more make it the perfect setting in the Connecticut River Valley for an elegant wedding affair. It’s also limited to one event per day so couples have the venue all to themselves and can create a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Some of its most splendid features include marble fireplaces, multiple ballrooms, vaulted ceilings, french doors, a giant patio, perfectly manicured lawns, and more!
