Waterfront weddings with a view are a beautiful way to capture your special day and Connecticut is a great state for hosting these! There are many locations and venues across the state where beautiful water views are available for your ceremony but when you add incredible cuisine and world-class service the list narrows greatly. Combine all these ingredients and you have the making for a day all who attend will long remember.
At Riverhouse Catering, we are dedicated to providing a luxury, gourmet dining experience for weddings across the state. There are so many breathtaking venues for you to choose from. Wherever you want to have your wedding, we bring the same high-quality service experience, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence.
Not sure where to start? Some of our exclusive partners and other recommended venues have waterside properties that will indulge all of your wedding dreams. Here are just a few that we highly recommend you and your partner check out on your journey to choosing an incredible waterfront wedding venue in CT.
This beautiful, serene location is located in Riverside Park. If you’re looking to have a wedding around Hartford, the Hartford Boathouse is a great choice for a riverfront experience. Your wedding will have the incredible backdrop of this historic city but still, be private and picture-perfect.
Over in Glastonbury, this boathouse venue option provides not just a breathtaking view of the Connecticut River but it’s a terrific option when you want modern yet simple decor, to pair with your personal wedding theme. The grounds which are literally on the water, make for gorgeous outdoor ceremonies and your reception will have a phenomenal location for picturesque backgrounds.
Branford House at Avery Point
If the riverfront isn’t exactly what you envisioned consider a breathtaking panoramic ocean view as the backdrop. Branford House at Avery Point in Groton is a must-see wedding venue option. Host your wedding at a stunning stone mansion with a grand ballroom, sprawling lawns, and a scenic ocean view.
The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station
Finally, we can’t talk about amazing water views for your wedding without also mentioning our sister venue location The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station in Haddam, CT. The Riverhouse is nestled on a ridge above the banks of the Connecticut River. With the historic East Haddam Swing Bridge and Goodspeed Opera House a short walk, there are plenty of waterside photography options here and your outdoor ceremony can be riverside too.
