About The Roger Sherman Inn

The Roger Sherman Inn is a charming wedding venue located in New Canaan, Connecticut. A haven of warm hospitality, the historic New England inn was first established in the 18th century. The team aims to make this welcoming country house feel like a home away from home with their dedicated approach to couples' happiness. The inn is sure to entice couples back every year to celebrate their anniversaries and big life moments.

Facilities and Capacity

Ceremonies can be held outdoors under the pergola in the garden of the Roger Sherman Inn. Home to mature trees and picturesque blossoms, the terrace and gardens produce a charming backdrop. With a traditional pub-style aesthetic, the bar area is an ideal laidback setting to serve guests hors d’oeuvres for cocktail hour. Other inviting and welcoming dining spaces, including al fresco, are also available. Inside, an open plan allows for weddings up to 175 seated guests. A wedding event of this size may make use of the bar and outdoor areas with fully staffed services. The dining rooms are notable for their timeless and elegant furnishings, accompanied by wood flooring and ceiling-height windows. For an exclusive wedding retreat experience, couples and their loved ones are welcome to book a stay in one of the inn’s 15 guest rooms. Couples can celebrate their wedding surrounded by the luxury of a boutique hotel that boasts all of the comforts of home.

Services Offered

The Roger Sherman Inn has packages to satisfy every wedding that offer day-of coordination and full-service event management. The inn can also provide on-site catering from a range of menus inspired by New England classics. Couples can select dishes served with locally produced seasonal ingredients such as vegetables, oysters, filet mignon, and Maine lobster. This exquisite fine dining is available plated or in a family-style format with house wines served throughout the meal by a butler. Couples have the option between a limited-open or cash bar from the full bar service present. To ensure that you can make the most out of your wedding day, the event team welcomes your choice of outside vendors.

    Perfect venue

    Our wedding at the Roger Sherman Inn was perfect. The Inn has always been a special place, but they've recently completed a major renovation and the results are absolutely beautiful. We had 85 guests, with our ceremony on the patio, cocktail hour on the porch, and dinner in the main dining room. From the beginning, Nes had a beautiful vision for the party, and Sue made sure every detail was perfect. The food was incredible and plentiful, the rooms are lovely, and getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite was a treat. Every detail was handled tastefully and thoughtfully, and we felt so at home in this elegant space. We couldn't recommend RSI more. Any couple looking for a special place to host a wedding in Fairfield County should consider it.
