Venue Ideas - Litchfield County

I had a surprise engagement on Christmas morning!  I have been planning for a late summer/early fall wedding since I'd like to do it while the weather is still warm.  Originally, I thought we would get married in 2013, but now that the ring is already here, that just seems like too long to wait!

Does anyone have any good ideas for venues - either ceremony and reception, or just ceremony, or just reception?  FI and I, as well as most of his family, live in Litchfield county.  My family is all out of state, so they'll have to travel no matter what.  I'm estimating the headcount to be 80-100.

Most of the recommendations I've seen on here are near Hartford or down near the coast.  I haven't seen much up my way, so please just throw some ideas out there!  Thanks!

  • I don't know any personally.  You might want to try to search for venue ideas. 

    I would think an outdoor park area such as Kent Falls would be beautiful. Or you might want to see if one of the fairgrounds would let you get married there, for something different (Bethlehem or Goshen?). There's a couple of places that popped up in my search:

    But I don't know any of these vendors. Good luck! 
  • Thanks a bunch!  I was actually considering Kent Falls - FI grew up in Kent, so it would be very meaningful for him.  I don't really want gawkers though, so that would be something to consider.  I'll check out those sites.

  • Thank you so much, Amylynn!  I just sent them an email.  It looks very affordable, pretty, and is in a convenient location.  Having the ceremony and reception in one place is a plus, too!

  • Washington Club Hall in Washington, CT is a beautiful, inexpensive option!
