Located just over 2 hours from Boston and right along the Connecticut River, sits the quaint wedding venue of Connecticut River Barn. Formally a dairy barn and a local ice cream shop, this venue has been family owned since 2001 and the family has been continually renovating the property ever since to make it somebody's dream wedding venue.
Host your ceremony right along the property's garden looking out to the dairy barn with the hand-made branch arbor to say "I Do" in front of all of your family and friends. Allow for a free-flowing cocktail hour with lawn games right along the meadow of milkweed, supporting the farm's booking monarch butterfly population, you could also allow for the cocktail hour to flow right into the Connecticut River Barn itself. Your reception can be held in the barn or if your guest number is over 110 people, there's more than enough room for a tented reception. With a property this diverse, you'll truly be able to hold your outdoor or barn wedding that you've always dreamt of.
Mayflower Venues and the host have set some rules that you will be asked to agree to upon booking.
