    The Most Magical Day at Most Amazing Venue

    We had our wedding at Priam in September of 2021, and it was everything we had wanted it to be and more. We picked Priam in February of 2019, after looking at quite a few outdoor vineyard and barn type venues throughout Connecticut. It was an easy decision, because aside from the incredible views and location, their ability, in partnership with their catering partners (Gourmet Galley in our case), to take care of all of the little things and make it a smooth, easy day was unparalleled. I was not someone who wanted to worry about bathrooms, linens, chairs, or cocktail napkins, and I didn’t have to, and the ‘standard’ options were beautiful and perfect. The other marvelous thing was how incredibly customizable our day was going to be – if I wanted anything specific, from décor, chairs, settings, schedule, etc., we could do it. The guidance our coordinator gave us was if it was legal and wouldn’t hurt the vines, it was doable!

    Even through the uncertainty that 2020 and 2021 brought to event planning, the staff and coordination team was wonderful to work with, answering all our questions, providing solutions, and pointing us in the direction of some great vendors to work with. They helped us create a special and unique day that truly felt like ‘us,’ not a cookie-cutter wedding from a template. Through our rehearsal and event, the staff was friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to make it feel like a special day, between golf cart rides around the property for the perfect picture, to organizing our décor and firepit, to generally being supportive and calming.

    Our day went off without a hitch, and I got nothing but compliments from our guests as to how perfect the location and venue were. It embodies quintessential New England fall beauty, and it was wonderful to let our décor be subtle and subdued to let the setting shine. Our pictures have turned out amazingly so far, and I can’t recommend the firepit and s’mores option enough. Our guests young and old loved the chance to step away from the dancing and loud music and enjoy a beautiful fall night and nice conversation.

    I can’t imagine our day having taken place anywhere else, and would recommend Priam, Amylu, Gloria, and the whole team to anyone looking for a classic, picturesque setting for their special day!

    Priam Vineyards's reply:

    Thank you Catherine for your incredibly thoughtful and complimentary review. We are so happy that the day was all that you, Daron, and those that love you wanted and deserved. We all work so hard to create the ultimate positive experience for our couples. I'm glad we met the mark! We hope to see you on all of your forthcoming anniversaries to celebrate, and wish you much joy, happiness, and good health! Thank you again for giving us the privilege of creating this day for you.

    Beyond amazing experience!

    This review is LONG overdue. We got married at Priam Vineyards in October 2018, and we could not have been happier with our choice to get married here! The venue is absolutely gorgeous! We got married in front of the vines, and just beyond that you see the rolling hills filled with the colors of fall foliage! Everything from the wedding contract, to the menu tasting provided by Gourmet Galley, to the rehearsal, to the day of the wedding was smooth and seamless. Gloria, Jim, and their entire staff work so hard to make your day everything you hope and dream it will be. The service and attention they provided was light years beyond what we expected! We have and will continue to recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful vineyard wedding.

Priam Vineyards is one of our favorite places to film weddings! The grounds are extremely gorgeous and make a lush backdrop for any event. We've seen it dressed up, dressed down and with an array of color schemes and we still can't decide which wedding was more beautiful than the others. It's really a very versatile place to get married. The staff is wonderful to work with as well! We highly recommend Priam Vineyards for Connecticut weddings!
