We used the Essex Steam Train as transportation to our reception at The Lace Factory. Throughout the process they were very helpful, and on the way back from the venue, they very sweetly let my husband and I sit in the first class car on our own! It was the first time we got to have a moment to ourselves the entire day, and it was so appreciated. Our guests loved to be able to do something so different as part of our wedding. We'd highly recommend to anyone getting married at TLF!Sent on 09/29/2017

My daughter and her Fiancé will be married here in September of this year. This venue was our last appointment on a VERY long weekend looking at venue options across Connecticut. Most of the venues we looked at were overpriced for the space available or had advertised themselves as being able to accommodate a lot more guests than they could comfortably fit. We looked at one option who said (prior to our visit) that they could seat 125 guests. When we arrived, the wedding coordinator explained that they based that on the fact that most of your guests would be "hanging outside". The Essex Steam Train River Valley Junction Hall and Oliver Jensen Gallery is the only venue that we visited that could COMFORTABLY accommodate my daughter's 125+ guest and still have room for a dance floor andSent on 01/23/2018
bar/hors d' oeuvres area. What really sold us on the Essex Steam Train facility was the Coordinator Pam Amodio. She is kind, welcoming and very professional. Her first question to my beautiful daughter wasn't "How much are you looking to spend?" but "What does your dream day look like?". That made all the difference to us and brought us to tears. She is the only one who asked that. Most of the venues we visited prior to meeting Pam, had told us that our clean up of the venue would begin immediately after the reception and we would have to have the venue returned to original condition before an early time the next morning. When I asked Pam the question "What do you expect from us as far as clean up?", she responded "Have a wonderful time, then take your personal belongings and go rest.". I hugged her after that answer. We are really excited to have a magical day with our 1st born daughter with the help of Pam Amodio!

We got married at the Lace Factory in Deep River and used the ‘Lace Factory Connection’ offered by the Essex Steam Train. Our guests were transported to and from our wedding via the train. This was a really unique feature of our wedding to be able to offer our guests and everyone seemed to really love it. The train to the wedding got people excited about our wedding and the train home allowed us to keep the fun going! We would highly recommend the Essex Steam Train, ‘Lace Factory Connection’ to any future bride and groom!Sent on 07/22/2017
