Luxurious weddings fit for royalty are some of the most requested styles for nuptials in New England. The rich history of the area and many of the beautifully kept estates, make these dreams possible. These weddings fulfill a unique vision for couples looking for an extraordinary celebration.
One of our favorite mansions in Connecticut for beautiful, picturesque weddings is Wadsworth Mansion. It’s a one-of-a-kind historic estate that offers a truly remarkable setting.
Here are just a few things we love about a luxurious Connecticut wedding at Wadsworth Mansion.
First, some history that really brings the scenic property to life.
The mansion began as a plan for a country summer home for Colonel Clarence S. Wadsworth and his wife Katharine Fearing Hubbard. The location was set on the rolling hills of Middletown, CT and they named it “Long Hill”. The design included 500 acres of traditional, working landscape that included well-managed forests and pastures. Colonel Wadsworth has an appreciation for the environment and wanted to ensure his property included conservation efforts while still being on par with popular luxury estates in New York and Newport, Rhode Island. Over the years the home was a place where the family hosted many ceremonies with thousands of guests including the wedding of their son.
So the location is already rich in history when it comes to weddings and decades of couples have celebrated their – I do’s – on this very property.
If that alone doesn’t pull at your heartstrings, the entire property and stately home also complement a variety of wedding themes from classic galas to boho-chic celebrations.
The elegant country estate is a Beaux Arts-style mansion and is reminiscent of 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 luxury was at the forefront of just about everything.
Some of its other splendid features include marble fireplaces, multiple ballrooms, vaulted ceilings, French doors, a giant patio, perfectly manicured lawns, elegant gardens full of an array of gorgeous botanicals, and more.
