Classic and trending wedding themes sometimes remain popular for over a decade or more – or never go away because they’re just so breathtaking. From grand ballrooms to waterfront weddings – Connecticut is home to some of the most spectacular locations for your big day.
Perhaps one of the biggest trends we’ve seen so many couples requesting for their special day has been Barn & Garden weddings. These rustic, romantic, captivating locations set the perfect scene for a magical day.
Garden weddings are popular because of the amazing seasonal blooms that can be used for wedding décor and bouquets and because of the overall whimsical magic that comes to life when exchanging vows in an enchanting outdoor location. Photos come to life with beautiful and natural backgrounds too!
