    This is such a stunning site for a wedding. Katherine was very easy to work with--she was responsive and helpful and very accommodating. The house has everything you could hope for, from a great kitchen for the catering staff to a beautiful room for the bridal party to get dressed in, and the fireplaces are stunning. Plus, you can bring your own vendors/caterer in, which very few other sites in the area allow. This flexibility allowed us to have exactly the wedding we wanted. We had a wonderful winter wedding here and walking down the staircase to get married in front of the main fireplace was like something out of a fairytale. The views out to the ocean are stunning and you really feel as though you have stepped back in time. The woodwork is incredibly intricate too, which makes for exceptional photo opportunities. I could not be happier with the venue!

    My wedding is 1/1/2016 and I have been working with the Branford House, and Katherine since last March. They have been nothing short of wonderful, flexible, nice and open. I cannot wait until my wedding and I will definitely write a review after ward. My friends and family said this was hands-down the best wedding - most elegant, most fun, gorgeous venue they had ever seen! I highly recommend it. The staff is amazing, friendly, low-key and flexible.
