$18k - $22k For 100 Guests

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.

Services Offered

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.

    Absolutely cannot recommend enough!!!!

    I can't put into words how amazing Jenna and the Coastal Gourmet team are. From the very beginning when we booked our wedding with Latitude in July 2020, Jenna made the entire process literally seamless. She is such a professional and it's very clear she knows what she's doing when it comes to weddings! Coastal Gourmet's food is amazing (and there are SO many options to choose from) - our guests are still commenting on how great the food was and that there was not a single plate that wasn't empty by the end of dinner. Our bridal attendant, Judy, was fantastic - so attentive, kind, and helpful all evening. Truly all of the staff we interacted with throughout the day were so kind and professional. Cannot recommend Jenna and the CG team enough. Thank you for making our day so amazing.

    Our Perfect Day

    When my wife and I originally booked Coastal Gourmet and our wedding planner, Alyson Clark, back in 2018 we could not have imagined the challenges we would face planning our wedding. For over 2 years, Alyson was by our side every step of the way to make us feel comfortable and cared for. Alyson was incredibly professional, prepared, experienced, and has a warm personality that made her feel like a close friend very early in our wedding planning process. When COVID-19 began to impact the day we had originally envisioned, Alyson tackled the unprecedented challenge with her experience and was the primary force in helping to deliver a picture perfect wedding day despite everything else going on in the world. She was quick to deliver updates, was always available to chat, and we always knew she had us on her mind as our big day changed and evolved. We were beyond lucky to have Alyson with us through the entire process and I would highly, highly recommend her to anyone planning an event.

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.
