    The most stunning venue and the best wedding decision you will make!!

    After we were engaged NYE 2020, we started the process of finding a venue for our wedding and although I did not know of the Lawn Club prior to all my research, we fell in love as soon as we found it! The photos were so enchanting and reviews so unanimously positive, that the only place we actually toured was the Lawn Club - we signed the contract at the end of the tour and it was the best decision we made! Everything you have read about the Lawn Club is true, it is a beautiful, unique all-inclusive venue with an amazing candlelit Art Deco feel. We did both ceremony and reception at the Lawn Club and utilized the bridal suite to get ready… such a big, beautiful room, I loved it! Throughout the Lawn Club grounds, there’s so many unique spots for photos, we had such a fun time exploring with our photographers and the photos are stunning! Our guests were blown away by the venue, food, and the service! No one had to wait for bar service at any point throughout the night. There’s so many small details that make a wedding at the lawn club stand out. First, during the ceremony, the blinds on all the windows are down and the room is filled with dreamy candlelight, and as the bride enters the room and walks down the aisle, the curtains are raised to let the sunlight in - so heavenly! Second, once the ballroom is set up prior to the reception, Christine found my husband and I and brought us into the ballroom is take in the whole setup prior to any guests entering - such a special quiet moment that the two of us were able to share! If it wasn’t already clear, the shining star of the venue is that it comes with Christine… she runs all on-site coordination and was such a pleasure to work with (I could not have done it without here). We postponed out 2020 wedding to 2021 and it was such a smooth process and I was so thankful for that, as it was already a stressful time! She is insanely organized, so helpful, and was there day-of to make sure everything ran smoothly. Her and her team also do ALL setup and breakdown at the end of the night and I was able to take in every single aspect of the day, instead of running around setting things up! It goes without saying, but the wedding would not have been as perfect if it wasn’t for Christine! Don’t wait, book the Lawn Club, it is stunning!!

    amazing venue

    Every last detail was thought out and on the day, orchestrated by the venue. It was a great feeling as a bride to know you are in good hands, despite having to change many plans (due to Covid and then rain!) and the day was still perfect. Christine is wonderful at what she does and knew exactly how to help vendors, design the room and make the day go seemlessly.

    Wedding Magic

    We held our reception at the Lawn Club this past February and cannot recommend them enough! While the building is absolutely stunning and speaks for itself, Christine and the team really set themselves apart. They say that even if your venue offers coordination services that you should still hire an outside coordinator. I can speak from experience that this is not the case with the Lawn Club. Every step of the way, Christine and the team were in contact and helped us make sure we were on the right track with planning. Everything was covered from when to send our save the dates to helping pick vendors that were in our budget. It made the planning process so much less stressful knowing that Christine was there to help.
    In the weeks leading up to the wedding they went above and beyond. They called all our vendors to coordinate and even helped us by providing outdoor heaters on the patio for our guests.
    When our wedding day came, we were able to relax and be in the moment (and enjoy our delicious dinners!) because we knew that everything was under control. It was truly a magical day and picking the lawn club as our venue was a huge part of the day's success!

Having been in the industry for over 15 years, I can honestly say that the staff at The New Haven Lawn Club is one of the most caring, detailed oriented, professional and fun in CT. We often design weddings there and it is such a pleasure as they make us feel like family. The history and decor of the venue is also one of the most unique. Crystal Chandeliers and sconces, columns, fireplaces, mantels, floor to ceiling windows.... You won't find anything else like it.
