After continuing my search for the perfect New England barn wedding venue I stumbled upon this gem of place. So this past weekend we set out to Middletown CT to see The Barn at Wesleyan Hills. This venue has it all, an outdoor area for a ceremony, tented patio for cocktail hour and a beautiful barn for a reception. Michelle from CT Wedding Group was wonderful. She answered all our questions and left us feeling confident that if this was our wedding venue we wouldn’t have to worry about a thing. It is very comforting to feel like your day will be executed exactly how you imagine it. Michelle explained that they have décor such as crates, burlap and more that they use to decorate around the barn and the food stations that are either “rustic country” or “rustic vintage” so depending on the couples vision they use the appropriate pieces to carry out the theme. This is a really nice perk as not many places will help decorate unless you pay for a package. I didn’t take any photos of the outdoor space as it was still covered in snow but you can see some real weddings if you visit CT Wedding Group. Come back and let me know what you think?
Will you be including your furry friend in your wedding? If so make sure they are dressed for the occasion. At The Wedding Outlet we have all kinds of fun pet wedding accessories… for the ladies consider a flower dog collar, tulle dog skirt or dog wings. While for the boys consider the oh so popular pet tux, dog ring bearer pillow or dog tux collar. If your venue doesn’t allow for your best bud to be present on your wedding day consider including a dog cake top figurine with the bride and groom cake top.
What are some other fun ways you could include your pet in your wedding day?
The Rivermill at Dover Landing in NH is a fairly new venue to hit the wedding scene. From their outstanding Wedding Wire Testimonials you’ll quickly see why this unique venue was next on our list to visit. While the venue is not exactly rustic like some of the previous venues we’ve visited, it offers a unique look and feel that interested us too. The high lofty ceilings, exposed brick and large gorgeous windows make this place stand out amoung other venues. This past Saturday we meet with Britt who was a delight. She was informative, personable and down to earth. While she discussed her venue and all it had to offer she happily suggested hotels, local restaurants and outdoor ceremony spots that would accommodate all our needs. This venue is essentially an open space for us to create a wedding all our own. With the appropriate up-lighting, decorations, tables and more personal touches this venue easily transforms into a wedding day you’ve dreamed of.

Our hunt for the perfect wedding venue continues… this past Saturday we visited the Red Lion Inn. I spent some time browsing past weddings via local photographers blogs and websites before hand so I knew I was going to like this venue, I just didn’t know how much! From the moment we stepped into the venue I was in love, it was beautiful. The bare wood structure of the room had a truly rustic look and feel while the high ceilings showcasing stunning chandeliers offered a touch of romance and elegance.
This venue will accommodate all your wedding needs under one roof, the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Here at the bottom of this beautiful staircase you exchange your I do’s.
Upstairs in the spacious loft area guests gather for cocktail hour. Complete with bar top tables, benches for seating and two bars located on each side and end of the loft.
The best part of the loft is the view! Guests can peer over and view the gorgeous reception area!

On Christmas Eve Sean & I got engaged (read engagement story). Celebrating with family and friends was wonderful. It was really special to be able to take the time to enjoy our engagement, the holiday and start of the new year.
Come January the planning began, we created our spreadsheets, put together a guest list, brainstormed ideas and began the hunt for a wedding venue. The venue is the most exciting, yet most difficult decision to make. It’s where your whole day takes place. It sets the tone for your wedding and once your select your venue visualizing your day becomes real and the rest of the planning starts to fall into place.
With so many amazing Massachusetts wedding venues to choose from we knew we had to first discuss our season, theme and style before deciding. Our dream would be a spring, rustic and intimate wedding day. Some of the MA wedding reception sites we are considering are Harrington Farm, Red Lion Inn, Smith Barn, Rivermill in Dover NH. We have our tours booked and are excited to see these beautiful venues. Stay tuned!
