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.

    Everything we wanted and more!

    This review is long overdue as we got married in May.. but better late than never! We were some of the unfortunate ones that had to reschedule our wedding TWICE. Sue and Nes were extremely accommodating and made what would have been a much more stressful situation easy to get through. The planning leading up to our wedding was perfect. Guest check ins and experiences were great. Everything was set up beautifully. We live in California so planning a wedding across the country didn't allow for many pre-wedding meetings. But we didn't need to. The vendors they recommended were wonderful, especially our florist Madeline from Bon Fleur. There was nothing I would change about our experience with Nes, Sue and the whole team at the Roger Sherman. If you're on the fence about booking here, I highly recommend. Having venue that includes rooms, food, drink, etc makes your wedding planning life SO much easier.

    Diamond in the Rough

    After a long and grueling venue search, we happened upon Roger Sherman, and it was a dream come true. Nes and sue have been beyond patient and accommodating in providing us with a one of a kind experience. They're catch phrase is, "no two events are alike" and boy, are they right! They are doing absolutely everything to provide us with everything we could want and more. These girls know how to take care of you and make you feel completely at ease during an insanely stressful time! We walked into the breathtaking space, and knew immediately, this was the spot we wanted to begin our forever together! The girls are hospitable, and make you feel like one of the girl crew! We absolutely adore them and can't wait to get married here!
