If you want a charming wedding by the sea, and a sophisticated reception in the city, a Connecticut wedding may be just what you’re looking for. With its rolling mountain peaks and maritime sea shores, there are beautiful landscapes for any wedding. Hartford, the capital city, has great art museums and many historical sites. Centered around Yale University, New Haven also has great wedding venues with its historic appeal and modern cultural scene. Boating, fishing, kayaking or hiking a stretch of the famous Appalachian Trail are all readily available for those seeking adventure. Or you can relax on the beach, take a guided river tour, or check out some of the up-and-coming wineries in the area. If you’re looking for some night life, New York City is just a short drive away.
