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!Sent on 08/19/2019

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.Sent on 06/19/2019
