Best wedding venue!

The Branford House Mansion was a dream come true. From working w/ the SUPER nice manager (Bethany) to the gorgeous mansion on the Long Island Sound, we couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding.

Wedding of our dreams at the Branford House!

The most amazing wedding venue! Bethany & Bailey were fabulous to work with! I am so glad we picked the Branford House for our Fall wedding in CT. The house, the lawn, the water view, the wrap around patio - everything at the Branford House is picturesque. We were able to do our ceremony on the lawn, cocktail hour on the patio, and dinner and dancing inside the Branford House. It flowed perfectly and the venue was the perfect size for our 135 person wedding. The ability to work with any vendor (beverage must be done through Uconn) and 10 hour venue rental timeframe are two of the many factors we loved. This gave us plenty of time for our first look, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing all at the Branford House. Would highly recommend this venue!
