On WeddingWire since 2019

The Lace Factory is a stylish wedding venue located in Deep River, Connecticut. This former factory speaks to the city’s industrial past and has been revamped into a trendy and eye-catching setting in which to celebrate. An ideal choice for a hip couple seeking a chic venue, it can welcome sizable gatherings of friends and family across multiple spaces. The property is conveniently located midway between New York and Boston and is within short driving distance of Hartford.

Facilities and Capacity

The Lace Factory’s largest space can welcome over 225 guests. This former warehouse is a spacious and bright stage upon which to host a memorable reception party. Natural light shines in through large windows illuminating worn hardwood floors and a sky-high ceiling crisscrossed by rafters. Fashionable industrial lighting fixtures hang from above and the ceiling can be decorated with flowing drapery to soften the room. Couples can also choose to rent the smaller Riverview Room and host an intimate gathering with up to 49 closed loved ones. It once again features exposed beams and wooden flooring and looks out over the beautiful Connecticut River. Nearly-weds can also organize their ceremony outdoors on the patio of the property, taking full advantage of these views and the iconic building itself as a backdrop.

Services Offered

The Lace Factory’s staff support couples throughout the planning process and on the day itself. The management has a strong relationship with local vendors including Cloud Nine Catering, who can create delicious meals for celebrations. The staff can also provide access to a sound system, and they can even set up a video conference for those who can’t be in attendance.


The venue’s catering partner, Cloud Nine Catering, is pleased to offer garden-to-plate selections that are curated from ingredients grown on site as well as trusted local producers. They also have chickens on the property that present a fun opportunity for guests who would like to participate in feeding them. The Lace Factory is happy to prepare vegetarian dishes and is able to provide food for any event that takes place on the property, including in the antique warehouse.

11/10 Can not recommend enough!!

My wife and I got married at the Lace Factory in September of 2023 and our lives will forever be better for it. We could not have envisioned a better wedding day and so much of that is thanks to the beautiful venue and incredible staff at the Lace Factory. They were easy to plan with, responsive to all our questions and eager to help in any way they could. My wife and I will be forever grateful to the Lace Factory and Cloud 9 catering. Can not recommend this venue enough!

Everything you're looking for and MORE

From the moment we walked into the Lace Factory for our initial tour, we fell in love with the space and the staff. Not only did the staff (Tiffany and Christine especially) help us plan and budget to create our dream wedding, but they exceeded expectations at every turn. Our guests couldn't believe we didn't work with a coordinator -- we didn't need one when it came to the Lace Factory because of Christine's attention to detail, genuine investment, and overall kindness.
We went a minimalist route and even without a ton of add-ons, the space was simply gorgeous. The day of our wedding it was drizzling and the staff was outside waiting with umbrellas to let all guests in from the bus.
We got married on 11/11/22 and every day we hear from our guests about how much they enjoyed it. The food, the bar, the dance floor, and the organization were impeccable! I would recommend the Lace Factory to anyone!

Our wedding at The Lace Factory was nothing short of perfect. From the very beginning, the team at TLF went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we dreamed of. They made suggestions, pointed out a few things that we would have overlooked along the way, and made sure that we were well taken care of the entire time we were there. They listened to the vibe we were looking for and 100% delivered. I can't thank them enough for all of their help and hard work in making our day special. Our family and friends are still raving about how much fun it was and how beautiful the venue was. All in all, if you are thinking about taking a look at The Lace Factory, do it! You'll fall in love just like we did!
