I'm looking for some opinions on a handful of venues on our current list. Although we both grew up in CT and most of our families are there (thus we are planning on getting married in CT/MA) we now live in NC, so my planning is long-distance. Any thoughts, experiences (both good and bad) that you could share would be very helpful!
If you have any other suggestions for locations (CT or MA, ~100 guests, $15,000 budget) those would be appreciated as well. I am not thrilled by the typical ballroom, I like venues that are rustic, or have high ceilings and lots of natural light. Waterviews would be a bonus. Going to try and narrow our list as best as possible so that when we are in state around the holidays we can hit up those that rank highest.
1- The Ranch Golf Club (Southwick, MA)
2- Glastonbury Hills Country Club (Glastonbury, CT)
3- Lake Pearl Luciano's [treetop room] (Wrentham, MA)
4- Lily Lake Inn [fountain room] (Wolcott, CT)
