The Branford House

The Branford House Connecticut

If there ever was a must have location for a wedding venue, this is the spot. Located on the University of Connecticut Avery Point Campus and just steps away from Long Island Sound, your wedding photographer will absolutely love this spot. With a capacity of 200 guests you can spread out over three beautiful rooms or enjoy the expansive grounds. Each room has an amazing fireplace which is perfect for those chilly Connecticut evenings. The venue is great for stations, sit-down or a cocktail reception. The wrap-around terrace is amazing and affords a great view of sailboats. Minimal decor is needed at this venue due to the amazing architecture. If you plan for less than 200, you can really maximize the indoor space – dancing in one room, cocktails in another and dining in another…the options are plenty!

The Branford House was voted the #5 best wedding venue in Connecticut by the experts.

Below is some of what Connecticut wedding professionals had to say about this wedding venue:

GORGEOUS!  Gorgeous rooms, gorgeous grounds, gorgeous gardens.  It’s a mansion on the water, what can I say.  It’s impressive and magical all at the same time.  Candice Milliard – Candi’s Floral Creations

Beautiful setting on the water. I love the mantle and the staircase inside and the way it looks like a castle. The patio is amazing too! Carisa Lockery – CR Socials Event Planning

Gorgeous inside and out…. ornate woodwork and amazing exterior architecture make this location stand out in a grand elegance. The mansion backdrop combined with ocean views make the Branford House a win win. Kevin Kelley – Kevin Kelley Photography

Another gem that captivates guests with granite, mahogany and marble. This palatial estate has a lawn that sweeps right to the Long Island Sound and can be tented. No where else will you enjoy this much oceanfront property with grandeur. When renting the mansion guests will be treated to an amazing granite balcony and gorgeous rooms with rich dark wood. A spiral stairwell and stunning marble fireplace. The venue can be rented for 10 hours. The staff at Ocean Blue Catering and Branford House are very gracious and wonderful to work with. Deborah Dempsey – A Gala Affair
