We just had our wedding at the DCA and I can't say enough good things about it. The grounds are gorgeous, the rooms are spacious and charming, and the staff is incredible. We ended up hiring their Catered Events Coordinator, Laura Boulton, as our day-of wedding coordinator, and she was an absolute MVP, liaising between all our vendors. She was so hands on and kind and organized, it was just a pleasure. She worked so hard to make sure that our vision (a low-key, backyard BBQ vibe) was executed) was realized. Some things to know about the venue--there are large, park-like grounds, a bird sanctuary, and an inner courtyard/garden with lovely plantings; the main reception room is air conditioned; the bathrooms are cute, the caterer's kitchen is large, there's AMPLE parking, and the venue itself comes with a number of tables, chairs, plates, etc. It's an amazing value and kind of a ridiculously good value for what you get.

We found the DCA through a caterer as we were looking for somewhere that had an English garden feel but could accommodate many more guests than other historical venues in Connecticut. I have to say this venue is absolutely beautiful, not only a short train ride from NYC (50mins), and nestled between the Merritt Parkway and I-95, it's also situated among some of the most beautiful properties.

What we loved about the DCA was it's complete customization, they provided chairs, tables, flatware, plates etc, we were able to bring in our own caterer, decorations, liquor, cake, DJ - the list goes on! Laura the events manager, and the whole DCA team were fantastic at responding to emails, questions and requests. We had more of a DIY wedding where we brought in a lot of our own homemade decorations, Laura made sure we had a room in the house to store everything over the weekend.

The venue itself is just beautiful! I would definitely recommend a spring wedding, everything was in full bloom for us! There were flowers everywhere we turned, as well as the photo opportunities that came with them! We had numerous comments from guests that their favorite part of the wedding was the cocktail hr in the garden. It truly was stunning! The house itself is also perfect for a wedding, it offers a contingency plan in case of bad weather and numerous rooms for guests to spread out. The bridal suite upstairs was one of my favorite rooms overlooking garden, it's surrounded by windows bringing in heaps of light for perfect "getting ready" shots. There are photo opportunities all over the property from the front lawn, to the secret garden on the side of the house - you're spoilt for choice!

I can't say enough positive things about the DCA, we're so glad we found it! I would highly recommend!

The DCA provided the perfect venue with a the homey feel that we were looking for. It's an old house with lots of rooms and a larger banquet hall. The grounds were perfect for our pictures.
