Mystic Seaport is a museum and ocean-inspired wedding venue in Mystic, Connecticut. It offers couples waterfront vistas dotted with grand ships as the backdrop for their big day. This seaside refuge easily enhances a wedding or related celebration, making it a memorable locale for hosting milestone moments.
Facilities and Capacity
Mystic Seaport was founded in 1929 in order to preserve America's quickly disappearing seafaring history. This gives the venue a historic ambience as well as making it a one-of-a-kind setting for "I dos". The museum sits on 19 acres and includes places to eat, exhibits, and areas for private events. One of these spaces is The Boat Shed at Lighthouse Point, which can accommodate up to 200 people. It is an open-air pavilion that has views of the museum and the Mystic River, providing a picturesque setting for dining and dancing. Couples looking to host an even larger gathering can choose the North Lawn, which has a capacity for 500 guests. Here, a tent can be set up for shelter and both ceremonies and receptions can be held. Other event spaces include the River Room at Latitude 41° Restaurant, the Morgan Suites, and the Meeting House, which suit different sized gatherings and help to make the venue easy to adapt to a range of wedding themes.
Mystic Seaport provides catering services for events through its partner, Lancer Hospitality. The team has ample experience providing creative and delightful dishes and high standards of customer care. The meal can be rounded off by the team's bar packages. Other services include setup and cleanup for your convenience, as well as rentals such as tables, chairs, flatware, and more.

Coastal Gourmet is TOP KNOTCH! Great food, great coordination with other vendors, great attention to detail, and just great people. they make it easy for couples to just enjoy their day without having to stress about everything. I highly recommend, especially for weddings in the Southeastern CT region.
Simply put, they are AWESOME! Great food, but equally important, they are great communicators with your vendors so everyone is on the same page. I have had the pleasure of working with them at The Branford House and many other venues on numerous occasions.
