A warm and intimate venue. We love it!
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!
