The Roger Sherman, Amber in particular, were great to work with. It was a two part affair, and they were wonderfully flexible and accommodating.

From our first meeting with Amber, as we began to plan our wedding, to the actual day, the Roger Sherman Inn gave us the feeling that our wedding would be personal, special, and just what we wanted. I joked that the response from Amber and the Inn was always, "Yes, we can do that." I'm sure it was a ton of work behind-the-scenes, but we never had the feeling that we what we wanted was overwhelming. We wanted an intimate feeling and elegant winter wedding, and even with 170 people, we were able to achieve that feeling with the Inn's magical holiday decor, and overall classic ambiance. Our wedding felt like it popped right up out of a vintage winter postcard, a French chanson, or the movie "White Christmas." We were able to create a non-traditional wedding dinner that felt cozy and perfect, and the service was excellent and kind. We also had our rehearsal dinner in the downstairs wine cellar the evening before and stayed with our families and wedding party at the Inn both the night before and after our wedding. We were able to spend quieter time at the bar after-hours, and really had the Inn to ourselves. It felt like a destination wedding, evening though I had grown up just a few towns over. Even writing this review, my words aren't able to capture how magical, intimate, classic, gracious, and beautiful it all was. The Roger Sherman Inn is a perfect wedding venue for any couple that wants their wedding to feel unique and special, and unlike a traditional wedding hall. We returned to the Inn for dinner with our families on our first anniversary, and I know that will be a tradition for many years going forward.
Love this warm inviting Inn for intimate weddings with an indoor/outdoor experience. Great food, great welcoming people.
It is always a pleasure to play in this beautiful location. Everything is first class.
