About Stamford Museum & Nature Center

Stamford Museum & Nature Center is a historic wedding venue located in Stamford, Connecticut. Less than an hour outside of New York City, this picturesque mansion was once the estate of businessman, fashion designer and philanthropist Henri Bendel. Now, the 118-acre estate offers two distinct event venues where you can host the wedding of your dreams – the Bendel Mansion and the newly constructed space, The Farmhouse.

Facilities and Capacity

Stamford Museum & Nature Center can accommodate up to 150 wedding guests in its superb indoor and outdoor event spaces. The Bendel Mansion was Bendel’s former weekend retreat and was designed in the style of a European estate. It features grand-scale rooms like The Great Hall, the Bendel Gallery, the Sunroom and the Solarium, oversized lead glass windows and outdoor terraces, and is surrounded by classical statues, sculptures and paintings. Intimate and grand ceremonies and receptions can be held inside the Bendel Mansion. Meanwhile, The Farmhouse is a rustically chic event space that features natural finishes, a high exposed-beam ceiling, and a large outdoor terrace with sweeping views of the charming, 118-acre estate. It sits on the estate’s working New England Farm with its pastures, barns, maple sugaring house and organic gardens.

    My name is Sherry Le Fay and I was the wedding coordinator working on a wedding earlier this summer and I wanted to let everyone know the phenomenal experience I had with them. To put this in context for you, I’ve never felt so compelled to praise a team, to the extent that i’ve found out who their boss is and took the time to right them a note during busy wedding season-- this is a first. That’s how awesome this team is.
    Jeanette throughout the entire planning process was an absolute dream. Jason and Ann were very detailed and thorough, and Jeanette answered every single one of their many, many emails and requests. Then while onsite, Jeanette went above and beyond. She always made herself present and continuously asked how she could be of help. Dom was an extension of Jeanette. Being just as incredibly helpful, and taking over when Jeanette departed, Dom was the epitome of cheerful and hospitable. He was kind, friendly and a joy to work with. Even though we had some major setbacks with our caterer being over two hours late in the beginning, these guys didn’t miss a beat. Don’t get me wrong, it was a mad dash to get everything finished on time, however Jeanette and Dom were the reason the bride and groom never knew that catering was so late. Jeanette and Dom without asking or hesitation threw themselves into the mix, setting up all 150 ceremony chairs, popping-up tables, working with the caterers, they even printing floor-plans when the catering company had arrived with none - just to make sure they were set, and they took care of all their questions (when they did finally arrive). You have an absolute dream team on your hands and I just couldn’t go without saying anything. I hope to be back with you all soon to work with this awesome crew again!

    We had an awesome time at our wedding at the Nature Center! We had our cocktail hour on the Otter Bridge, our friends and family enjoyed all of the nature and animals. The reception was in the museum and was a beautiful and unique setting. Highly recommend for someone looking for something a little bit different.
