The Roger Sherman, Amber in particular, were great to work with. It was a two part affair, and they were wonderfully flexible and accommodating.

From our first meeting with Amber, as we began to plan our wedding, to the actual day, the Roger Sherman Inn gave us the feeling that our wedding would be personal, special, and just what we wanted. I joked that the response from Amber and the Inn was always, "Yes, we can do that." I'm sure it was a ton of work behind-the-scenes, but we never had the feeling that we what we wanted was overwhelming. We wanted an intimate feeling and elegant winter wedding, and even with 170 people, we were able to achieve that feeling with the Inn's magical holiday decor, and overall classic ambiance. Our wedding felt like it popped right up out of a vintage winter postcard, a French chanson, or the movie "White Christmas." We were able to create a non-traditional wedding dinner that felt cozy and perfect, and the service was excellent and kind. We also had our rehearsal dinner in the downstairs wine cellar the evening before and stayed with our families and wedding party at the Inn both the night before and after our wedding. We were able to spend quieter time at the bar after-hours, and really had the Inn to ourselves. It felt like a destination wedding, evening though I had grown up just a few towns over. Even writing this review, my words aren't able to capture how magical, intimate, classic, gracious, and beautiful it all was. The Roger Sherman Inn is a perfect wedding venue for any couple that wants their wedding to feel unique and special, and unlike a traditional wedding hall. We returned to the Inn for dinner with our families on our first anniversary, and I know that will be a tradition for many years going forward.

Everyone at Roger Sherman Inn, but most especially Amber Bonfoey went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect. Every request, no matter how small or large was accommodated, the food was excellent, the rooms were all beautiful and everyone had the best time! Everything was perfect and I cant think of one thing that I would have done differently. I would highly recommend anyone planning a wedding, anniversary or any special occasion to contact the Roger Sherman Inn.

Roger Sherman Inn was a beautiful location for the 'Celebration Dinner' we had after our wedding ceremony. Chris Paul, and the entire staff, were a pleasure to work with: gracious, accommodating, friendly and professional.

The Roger Sherman Inn was an amazing venue to have a wedding, especially if you are looking for an intimate, elegant environment! My husband and I were extremely impressed with the food and the cake, as were the guests. The food was not only delicious, but arrived to each table hot (something that is not always the case at other weddings). For being included in the package, the cake was really tasty and beautiful! I couldn't have hand-selected a better one myself. The banquet manager was initially not as responsive as I would have liked (for instance, he would respond to my lengthy, detail-oriented emails with only a few sentences), but in the end, he pulled everything together perfectly. The only concern that we had was that the DJ was unable to properly connect to have the music playing in the dining room and bar/cocktail hour location. However, guests ended up enjoying that they could have conversation in one space and dance in another. Overall, we had an incredible experience.

The Roger Sherman Inn provided a most elegant and comfortable place for out-of-town family and friends to stay during the wedding weekend, plus a wonderful, delicious post-wedding Brunch on Sunday morning.
