About

On WeddingWire since 2023

Grace Island is a mansion wedding venue located on the private island of Pot Is in Stanford, Connecticut. Named by the New York Times as "One of the best places on Earth," Grace Island is a ten-minute ferry ride from Stony Creek. The property has hosted numerous wedding celebrations and events, catering to world leaders, captains of global industries, and members of royal families.

Facilities and Capacity

This stunning 6,500-square-foot mansion was constructed in 1850 under the Thimble Island House moniker before being renamed Grace Island. There are several beautiful outdoor areas to stage a wedding ceremony with a comfortable capacity of up to 250. The mansion itself possesses 11 bedrooms, which means the wedding party and some close friends can stay together under one roof.

Services Offered

Grace Island is primarily a wedding venue but can cater to birthday celebrations, vacations, or any other special event. Exploring the island is a must, be it admiring the view and scenery, walking in nature, or partaking in water sports; it truly is an unforgettable time. Please feel free to contact the team at Grace Island by phone, email, or through their website for more information. Alternatively, taking a boat to the island and visiting during business hours is greatly encouraged.
