Stunning venue in a charming New England Town

The Lounsbury House was the perfect location for our wedding. We had 90 guests and September and cannot say enough about this beautiful venue! From the bridal party suites, to the gardens, to the reception hall and dance floor this house is just stunning. If you're looking to have your ceremony onsite they have a beautiful private garden area for that too! We ended up deciding on a religious ceremony and there were tons of churches close by to chose from. The town of Ridgefield is just adorable as well and makes for the perfect wedding weekend.

Beyond the beautiful facilities, Maggie was so kind and easy to work with. We had a ton of little things we wanted to do (petal toss, streamers, etc) and Maggie was so accommodating. She truly made sure we had our dream day. If you are looking for a stunning and intimate wedding look no further!

The best venue and good bang for your buck

The Lounsbury House is absolutely stunning, and I'm so happy we picked this place as our wedding venue. We got married there last month, on June 10th, and everything came together so seamlessly. The staff was great to work with, very communicative, and the house itself was just stunning. My only complaint is that to purchase additional hours beyond the 9 hours, it's pretty pricey, so we didn't get to enjoy getting ready in the bridal suite before the wedding as long as I had hoped. If you choose this as your venue, I highly recommend staying at West Lane Inn (right down the road) with close family and friends (as there are only 13 rooms). The combo of staying there and then having our ceremony and reception at the Lounsbury House made the whole weekend just amazing.

The Best Venue!

From the moment we toured Lounsbury House, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous (not to mention the stunning bridal suite and groomsmen suite too!), and Tracy was fantastic to work with. She helped us through the ups and downs of re-planning a postponed wedding during a pandemic, and ultimately was a huge part of making sure everything went smoothly. Lounsbury will always be a special place for us!

The Lounsbury House is such a stunning venue. As a photographer, I have worked there many times capturing the beautiful weddings that take place there. I find so many locations inside and out for stunning photos of the bride and groom, wedding party, and family shots. The brand new renovation has added to the charm of this historic house!

The Lounsbury House has recently gone through renovations to make it one of the premier wedding venues in Connecticut. The House has a very clean and modern feel while still maintaining the charm of a historic mansion. Both Melanie and Jenn who run the Lounsbury have a keen eye for detail and make every couple feel at ease knowing that every detail will be attended to when it comes to their big day. We absolutely love to work at the Lounsbury House!
