Where to Get Hitched
Local spots to tie the knot
The Water's Edge at Giovanni's hall
677 South Ave
This picturesque 1912 Tudor mansion located in the central Waveny Town Park opens its doors to the public for weddings and receptions throughout the year. With aspects of the manor like leaded glass windows, muraled walls and the quaint Walled Garden — the feelings of matrimony float through the air. This grand home is a popular destination for those in the New Canaan area as it provides a multitude of locations on sight to have a beautiful ceremony with old world charm.
195 Oenoke Ridge
This landmark inn will provide your special day with a historical ambience that combines the new with the old. Though large banquet rooms and festive décor are offered, the cuisine is what makes this inn truly outstanding. Whether your wedding is a quaint 10-person affair or an unforgettable bash of 200 people, the inn can fulfill your wedding wants and needs.
A couple weds at the Roger Sherman Inn
2748 Boston Post Road
It’s more than just another wedding event when you go to The Waters Edge, it’s an experience. The people at Giovanni’s supply any bridge and groom’s desires for whatever the size of your guest list, but it’s the view that steals the show. The award-winning waterfront location makes for some great photo opportunities. And, since the family-owned location prides itself on the fact that “entertaining is what we do and who we are” it’s hard to be disappointed.
Darien Community Association: 274 Middlesex Road
Charming seems to be the best word for the Darien Community Association’s Meadowlands estate. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this regency-style location is close to Moffly Media’s hearts. It was just named the “Best of the Gold Coast” in wedding reception venues. Maybe it’s because this picturesque property offers a beautiful setting for this once-in-a-lifetime day, as well as an air-conditioned ballroom that can accommodate 150 guests. With another Gold Coast winner, Marcia Selden Catering, as their exclusive partner, a wedding at the Meadowlands seems to have NewCanaan-Darien Magazine written all over it, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Main Club: 410 Hollow Tree Ridge Road, Darien
Beach Club: 6 Anchor Road, Rowayton
With two options for a gorgeous and private wedding, the Wee Burn Country Club has a classic New England feel with a beautiful outlook of either the premier golf course or the beachfront. The Main Club in Darien has a recently renovated interior showing an unparalleled view. The Beach Club location in Rowayton is available in the month of May and from mid-September to October. With an emphasis on private and exclusive events, Wee Burn brings a Fairfield County charm to any type of wedding.
177 Rowayton Ave.
Though a park might seem like an unconventional wedding venue, the park is nestled in Rowayton and brings a setting rich in historical atmosphere. The Pinkney House, circa 1820, provides a gazebo, memorial garden and a perfect photo-op location near Five Mile River. Home to the Rowayton Historical Society, this quaint and simplistic venue could be a beautiful setting for a springtime wedding.
