    Stunning location

    Once we toured Eolia, we knew we had to book it for our wedding. We held our ceremony in the amphitheater by the water, with no extra decorations and it was beautiful. Our guests raved about being able to tour the gardens, and we barely decorated indoors because it's lovely on its own. About 75% of our guests were coming from out of state, so we wanted a location that felt worth the trip. This is it. The view of the Long Island Sound was breathtaking, and we had the good luck of perfect weather. There are a ton of different beautiful spots for taking wedding photos here. Our 60 guests fit very easily into one room for dinner, and there was plenty of space throughout our reception. Even better, we were happy our money was going to support the state parks. We look forward to coming here from time to time to relive our best night.

    Eolia is the most incredible venue. I cannot even tell you how many compliments we received after having our wedding there. The guests were blown away. Not only is the house itself beautiful, but the gardens were in full bloom for our outdoor ceremony -- didn't even have to spend $$ on ceremony decor/ceremony flowers! The only draw back is that unless you have a small wedding (<80 people), you're going to have to have your guests sit in separate rooms for dinner. This was fine for us - but may not work for some.

    Like in real estate, it’s all about location, location, and location! Eolia Mansion was utterly beautiful and perfect for our Great Gatsby themed wedding! Bonus is the gorgeous beach right there! We enjoyed having our ceremony in the amphitheater looking out at the Long Island Sound (which looked exactly like an ocean to us!) The English gardens, ivy-wrapped columns, and more around the mansion are just to die for. So many photo-op scenes- our guests kept on taking photos of themselves during the wedding, well, while they weren’t dancing up a storm under the great tent with attached to the back of the mansion! Amazing views were the cherry on the top. You won’t regret picking this location- we had a beyond memorarable wedding and reception there.
