    The Lawn Club makes wedding dreams come true!

    You will be hard pressed to find a team of professionals that could surpass what Karen, Christine make happen. They are simply a amazing. We hosted our wedding reception with just under 200 guests here on 12/7/19. The Lawn Club is exquisitely decorated for the holidays, it is jaw-droppingly beautiful. If you have any interest in a December wedding, you must see photos or come by next December to see it in person! Karen and Christine have such a personable, patient, kind and professional way about them. No question or request is too silly, nor something they will try to make happen for you! Their attention to detail is unbelievable, and they make you feel like the only thing they are working on is your big day, when in reality they are juggling so much. Their guidance is invaluable and I couldn’t have planned so many logistics without them and the amazing preferred vendor list they provide you. The food was absolutely delicious with so many unique options. Our guests continue to rave about the Mac and cheese bar at cocktail hour! We also were even able to have my golden retriever come to the reception for photos! They are dog friendly! There was not a stone left un-turned before the wedding, including a walk through the week before and Karen contacting each of our 6(!) vendors in the days leading up to ensure seamless execution and organization. We were so proud to host our wedding at the Lawn Club and could not say enough about this incredible venue. You need not look further! 😊 I don’t yet have our professional photos but sharing a few from friends below.

    The New Haven Lawn Club is perfect!

    The atmosphere is amazing, the food is terrific, and the staff will go above and beyond. What more could you want on your wedding day! Christine, the director of weddings, will help you organize every step of the way and provide you with a list of vetted vendors that will make your special day run smoothly. The building and the grounds (think brick, vines, candles, fireplace, balconies) lend itself to amazing photos. And your guests will rave about the food (the filet mignon is a huge crowd pleaser).

    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.

  • Shindig Lighting Wedding Decor & Lighting

    A venue with beautiful architecture, delicious food, and friendly wait-staff- what more could you ask for?! Coming from a vendor, John, Christine and crew are ALWAYS very accommodating and we always feel welcomed into their "home".
