    My wedding ceremony and reception were held at the Lawn Club on 8/25/18. Everything about the day was perfect! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and full of so much charm and character! It has a very classy and elegant feel. Many guests thought that the ballroom was gorgeous! The wedding coordinators, Christine and Karen, are amazing at what they do!!! Throughout the whole wedding planning process, they were always available to answer any questions in a timely fashion and offer any help. We feel so grateful to them for making our day so amazing. Honestly, they are top notch and the best of the BEST at what they do! Even some of my vendors were raving about them!! You will be in good hands with both ladies! The food at the Lawn Club is delicious. Several of our guests told us that it was the best “wedding food” they’ve ever eaten. We loved that the portion sizes were adequate, therefore no guests left feeling hungry. The ballroom itself is beyond beautiful. As a bride with a specific vision, I was unsure of how things would end up looking all put together by someone else other than myself! Let me tell you that Christine and Karen exceeded my expectations. Things were lovely! We even ordered a late night snack to be brought in by Pepe’s and Christine set everything up for us. Our interactions with other Lawn Club staff were great, everyone is so nice and helpful. There are several great spots to have first look photos and bridal photos taken. I’m so happy that I chose to have the Lawn Club be the setting for the most important day of my life. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful venue with great food and great wedding coordinators!!!!! Thank you Christine and Karen!

    This past weekend we celebrated our daughter's wedding in New Haven, culminating in a reception at The New Haven Lawn Club. We just do not know where to begin except to say our daughter and new son told us it was the Wedding of their dreams!! Christine Brush and Karen Wilson made it happen! From the moment we first visited their site to the day after when we returned to gather our belongings, they have been our go-to people! Professional, attentive, reactive to ALL our needs, experienced and always with wonderful attitudes!! We tasked them both with a very detailed plan and they met every item spot on!! The food, the Ballroom, the Cocktail Area, the Living Room - were all so impressive that our families and guests are still emailing, calling and texting us that it was the best wedding they have every attended. Comments such as, romantic, impressive, outstanding, delicious, over-the-top, well-run, fantastic and we could go on. Thank You, Christine and Karen for making our only daughter's wedding reception a dream come true for her and her new husband and for my husband and I as well! We wish you both continued success! The M Quatrano Family

    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.
