About

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.

Services Offered

The Stamford Museum & Nature Center is a gorgeous property that is available for hosting several types of wedding celebrations, such as bridal showers, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and receptions. The museum and nature center offer a variety of event services to couples planning their nuptials in the heart of the historic city of Stamford. Those services include event planning, event rentals and wireless Internet. The talented event specialists at the museum can also refer you to preferred vendors in the area in an effort to make your special day a memorable event for all.

Amazing Experience

We originally looked at the farmhouse for our wedding venue but then saw the Bendel Mansion and fell in love. The mansion was beautiful the day we toured it but the day of our wedding, it was incredible. Our guests all commented on what a gorgeous facility the SMNC is. We had our cocktail house out on the Otter Bridge and it was worth the extra expense! Jeanette was my contact and she was incredible. She was incredibly helpful, answered all my questions in a timely manner and gave me her cell number and told me to reach out at any time. She made the planning process so much easier offering her recommendations and suggestions when requested. She went out of her way to find me the day of the wedding and, again, told me to let her know if I needed anything. I can't recommend the SMNC enough!
