Gay Weddings

Venue to avoid

Had my first bad experience today with my wedding plans. I'm posting what I sent the owner of Bill Miller's Castle in Branford, CT. Wish us better luck with the other venues.

Hi Cheri,

         unfortunately I'm going to have to cancel our scheduled appointment. After our conversation this afternoon, I'm not feeling very confident that I'd be comfortable having my wedding at your facility. I appreciate your time. I respect the fact that you were honest with me about your feelings and beliefs of not being comfortable to help me and my partner with coordinating our special day, but this does impact us not wanting to patronize your establishment. 

Regards, Michelle & Alicia

    Sorry to hear this!  I am just appalled that even in Connecticut, where same-sex marriage is legal, there are still vendors dragging their feet on entering the 21st century.

    I'm sorry. I just can't believe we're in the 21st century and we still have huge issues with homosexuality. I mean really this woman would rather sacrifice a potential client because of her views? Clearly she doesn't know much about business. More importantly she just shunned the gay community and not only that but word travels fast. You're going to find a better & greater venue!! Hang in there! The only one missing out is Bill Miller's stupid Castle ;)

    That is really saddening, I'm sorry it was your first experience. My wife and I only experienced people who were really excited to work with us and eager to work on a gay wedding. You will find the perfect venue and forget that Bill Miller's Castle ever existed!

    I had that problem with our photographer :( SO unfortunate! Of course, I'm not in CT but Denver is on it's way to equality (slowly but surely). So sorry to hear that!
