    The best venue!

    I’m not sure where to begin with this amazing place. For starters, it is beautiful. All on its own, it’s truly so stunning inside and out. We were able to have our wedding here on 11/21/20 and feel so lucky to have done so. The staff is phenomenal. And Christine was such a blessing to have during this last year. From the day of our tour/booking, our food tasting and everything leading up to the wedding, Christine was there to answer all of our questions. This year was unlike any other. We faced so many changes due to Covid and Christine was just a phone call away to calm us or reassure us that NHLC would do all they could to make sure our day was amazing. I know Christine had to have so many hard conversations with couples, but we appreciated her candor and willingness to go above and beyond. And despite all the changes, we were able to have a smaller more intimate, but truly beautiful wedding. Our guests felt comfortable with all the protocols in place and still had a great time. The food was fantastic and a hit with everyone. Christine and Karen were there any every point in the night to make sure we were taken care of and having a great time. You cannot go wrong with the Lawn Club. The venue paired with the exceptional service and food makes this place truly hard to beat!

    Fantastic Experience!

    Christine and her team at the Lawn Club were absolutely phenomenal! The entire process was easy and the guidance and flexibility were most appreciated. Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, Christine and everyone at the Lawn Club made our wedding beautiful, fun, and everything that we wanted it to be! Everything was amazing, from the food and service to the ambience. We could not have asked for a better day!

  • Candi's Floral Creations Wedding Florists

    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".
