Over my years in photography I’ve come to really love photographing rustic wedding venues in CT. There is so much beautiful scenery in this state! I find that couples who choose a rustic style tend to be more laid back and carefree about the details of their wedding day. And this shows up in their more relaxed, genuine expressions in their photos. If you’re considering a country wedding, check out these rustic wedding venues in CT:
The Golden Lamb Buttery - 499 Wolf Den Road Brooklyn, CT
For an intimate country wedding, check out The Golden Lamb Buttery situated in sleepy Brooklyn, CT. Founded in the 1960’s by a married couple who ran a tailoring business, they begin the restaurant to provide their customers with a place to eat. Now gusts continue to enjoy relaxing meals in the barn’s dining rooms. Couples who choose Golden Lamb can opt to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony. The deck overlooks a peaceful pond, and makes for an ideal cocktail space.
Wrights Mill Farm - 65 Creasey Road, Canterbury, CT
A WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Award winner five years in a row, this farm venue is great for couples looking for a unique, rustic setting. The grounds about with hidden gems – waterfalls, a covered bridge, and a secluded ceremony space. The historic mill and pond make a picturesque backdrop – there are photo opportunities everywhere you look. The newer ballroom has a modern rustic style, with vaulted barn-style ceiling, and huge windows to let in natural light. The ballroom opens onto a generous deck overlooking the lawn. Onsite catering makes the planning experience easier, and past couples give the venue glowing testimonials.
The White Barn at South Farms - 21 Higbie Road Morris, CT
Nestled in the Berkshires, the White Barn at South Farms is an impressive rustic wedding venue. The aptly named hayloft in the large White Barn can seat up to 200 wedding guests. Two other smaller spaces are perfect for smaller weddings, or other wedding-related events. From the sliding white barn doors, to the uniquely-designed loft space, the barn has a clean, classic appeal.
