Have you ever dreamed of having the perfect romantic wedding experience? Crafted with luxury and ease, hosting your nuptials at a beautiful farmhouse in Connecticut is sure to create an atmosphere full of lasting memories. Whether it be nestled among rolling hills shrouded in autumn colors or sitting peacefully near sprawling sounds and tranquil waters, a farmhouse wedding provides an intimate feeling that showcases all that nature has to offer. Together we will walk through a few of the basics for how to plan your luxury farmhouse wedding in Connecticut for you two love birds—from choosing your venue right down to finalizing the décor details that will make it unique to you!
Choose the Ideal Date for Your Luxury Farmhouse Wedding in CT
The beauty of Connecticut is the diversity of the seasons. You can imagine the magical moment when you and your beloved exchange heartfelt vows surrounded by snowflakes, colorful leaves, or rays of sunshine and beautiful blooms. It just depends on the season!
So, you’re going to want to think about two things:
Do you want to bundle in a white faux fur shawl, or do you want to be in a strapless beauty of a dress all day long? Think about how you want to feel on your big day. Now, today we’re not talking about emotionally—we’re talking about how you want to feel physically! Do you want to be hot or cold? Want the heat of the sun or a lucky sprinkle?
Each unique season in New England brings different climates, which will impact your luxury farmhouse wedding in CT!
Now, while thinking about weather… you also want to think about availability. The summer months and fall months book up much more quickly in Connecticut as people are seeking clear skies and a gentle breeze!
Plus, there are a lot of events during the summer. For example, you may want to avoid the weekend of the Mystic Outdoor Art Festival if you’re searching for farmhouse wedding spots like Stone Acres Farm in New London County. And similarly, avoid things like Wesleyan’s fall family weekends or back-to-school week if you’re looking at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills!
Select Your Farmhouse Wedding Venue in CT
It’s not a luxury farmhouse wedding without the farmhouse, right?
When deciding on a venue for your special day, it’s important to ensure it fits what you envisioned. Here are a few things you can look at to narrow down which farmhouse venues may be most suitable for you and your partner:
- Amenities – how difficult will it be for your caterer? Are there on-site bathrooms, or will you need to bring in a cute lil’ bathroom trailer? Can you get ready on-site?
- Size & number of guests you’d like to invite – is it big enough? Perhaps too big for an intimate farmhouse wedding?
- Location – is it easy to travel to? What are the views like?
- Indoor or Outdoor – can you host both indoor and outdoor facets of the event? If it’s tented/ outdoors, is there a rain plan? Can they host inside the farmhouse for a group your size?

Search for a Farm-to-Table Caterer
When you pair a dreamy tented farmhouse wedding under the stars with meticulously crafted cuisine by a super-talented caterer, dreams come true.
Farm-to-table cuisine is ever popular because every ingredient is sourced from the finest local farms, exquisitely selected to ensure maximum freshness and superior quality, resulting in a harmonious blend of vibrant flavors and tantalizing textures that dance on your taste buds.
We love a good farm-to-table tasting menu for smaller weddings or small plate stations for larger weddings! When you pair the earthy essence of your venue with the culinary experience, your guests will be wowed, and you’ll have memories that will last a lifetime.
Wedding food can be an experience, not just something to nibble on between songs on the dance floor (although we do love that too).
Consider the Farmhouse Wedding Décor that Will Add Uniqueness
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime moment to celebrate the union of two souls and families. Décor is your opportunity to share the two backgrounds and stories that will be becoming one with your wedding!
Think luxurious velvet drapes, twinkling fairy lights, fragrant blossoms, family heirlooms, handmade candles, and vintage furniture that exudes charm! Let your love story unfold with each carefully handpicked element, infusing your personal touch into every detail, ensuring that your special day is like no other.
While some don’t realize how much of a difference décor can make for a luxury farmhouse wedding in Connecticut… we like to say trust in the magic of exceptional styling! It will help create the timeless experience that will forever be etched in the hearts of all who share your special day with you.
Choose Romantic Music to Celebrate Your Love (And That Will Bring the Party)
We love a dual vibe at a wedding. And a little surprise for your guests…
We love featuring sweet melodies from an acoustic guitarist, a string quartet, or a jazz trio for the ceremony and cocktail hour. Maybe through dinner, too. But since many farmhouses have an expanse of private space, you can also have a surprise multi-piece cover band to turn things up when it’s time for the party to start!
How fun would it be to surprise your guests with a band to dance the night away after the knot is tied?
