The New Haven Lawn Club, founded in 1891 and housed in a stately Georgian mansion in the New Haven's prominent East Rock neighborhood, has long been a venue for the city's most elegant social gatherings. As special today as it was to debutantes in the 1920's, the Club's distinctive architecture - including its ballroom's barrel-vaulted ceiling, crystal Art Deco lighting, and checkered terrazzo floors - has been carefully preserved to maintain its refined and graceful geometry. Although the building is historical, Lawn Club Fine Catering's menu and event planning are anything but old-fashioned. Our sumptuous menus aspire to delight and surprise guests with international flair and creative use of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Professional event planners anticipate all you and your guests need, work hard to execute your event exactly as you imagined it, and will not rest until we have exceeded your expectations. Read less

NHLC surpassed all expectations. The venue is exquisite, with a personality that's unique in the CT wedding world (not another barn, not another country club.). Christine and Daniella are extremely professional, calm, and collected. They manage every detail for you, essentially providing full day-of-coordination. That said, they also provide a variety of resources to make sure clients who do not hire planners (like us) are on top of their to do's at the right time. The food is delicious, and I couldn't believe how many people cleaned their plates - even after stuffing themselves during the equally delicious cocktail hour. Service was impeccable. Our guests didn't want for anything, and several remarked on how helpful and attentive the staff was. The Lawn Club worked with us to ensure our wedding package included the food and drink we wanted at a very reasonable price (not forcing us to also get things we didn't want, just because they were in a set package). We had no idea how much we would get from the Lawn Club when we initially compared them to what I'd consider "comparable venues" - either due to prestige, price, uniqueness- but our gut said this was the place for us. Now, with the big day behind us, there is not a doubt in our minds. There is a reason the Lawn Club has such a stellar reputation, and they live up to it in every way.

We recently just got married at the New Haven Lawn Club on 10/25/13 and we couldn't have been happier with the venue! Christine is a dream to work with and from the day we booked the venue to the actual day of the wedding she was always there to answer questions and put my mind at ease. Her staff (including Daniela) were always so helpful, knowledgable and professional. As an event planner myself I trusted them 100% and never had any doubt that our wedding would be perfect. Everyone is still raving about the food, the service and the ambiance of the venue - everything was gorgeous, delicious and worth every penny! Most importantly we never had to worry about anything during the day - every wish was taken care of and we could just sit back and enjoy our wedding! I would highly recommend this venue and wouldn't have changed a thing!

This was the most amazing day of our lives. Christine and Daniella are INCREDIBLE. From the the very beginning they were helpful, professional, caring, and just hands down the best at what they do. I was never worried about our reception. I knew I was in good hands because they honestly care down to the last detail and make you feel like a person and not job. The moment we saw the ballroom for our reception it brought tears to my eyes. The food was amazing, as well as the service going so far as helping my husbands nana change her shoes into some flip flops. Absolutely amazing. Thank you both for all you do and thank you for making our day so incredible.

The Lawn Club is an amazing venue to hold a wedding. From the moment that I stepped foot in the building I knew that I wanted to have my reception here. For one the facility is breath-taking, and so unique and different from the norm. They only hold one wedding at a time, and Christine, and Daniella (wedding cooridinators) could not be more helpful or more accomodating. They bend over backwards to accomodate your every whim, while offering a helping hand whenever you may need one. They truly make your wedding run so smooth, I can not say enough positive about my entire experiece. So many of our guests came up to me to comment on how wonderful everything went and I could not have had a more perfect day.

They only hold one wedding at a time, and Christine, and Daniella (wedding cooridinators) could not be more helpful or more accomodating. They bend over backwards to accomodate your every whim, while offering a helping hand whenever you may need one. They truly make your wedding run so smooth, I can not say enough positive about my entire experiece. So many of our guests came up to me to comment on how wonderful everything went and I could not have had a more perfect day. Read less

Working with Christine and the rest of the staff at the New Haven Lawn Club was the most incredible experience. From day one, they made me feel incredibly special and that my wedding was important to them. Come the day of the wedding, everything was PERFECT. From how the room was decorated, to the food, to the service and finally to the end of the evening. I was incredibly lucky to be married at NHLC and would do it all over again. Thank you Christine and Daniella for such an incredibly experience!

The New Haven Lawn Club staff and venue by far surpassed our expectations for our wedding. We were provided an event with memories to last a lifetime. From the moment we stepped foot on the Lawn Club's campus, even just for our first tour, we were treated with the utmost professionalism and friendliness. It cannot be said enough that the expertise provided by Christine and Daniella are top notch and SO refreshing to have when you're going through the stress of planning your big day. They handle all questions and inquiries with punctual and informed responses. After the planning process was over, the day was handled so well that we have guests still commenting on how wonderful, classy, and well-put-together our wedding was. We could not be happier with what was included in our package price, the quality of the food, drinks, and not to mention the pies we had requested from the NHLC's pastry chef (without even a tasting beforehand!). I would recommend this to any couple looking for a lovely, completely accommodating, and memorable event venue. Thanks to all!

If I could do my wedding over 1,000 times I would ALWAYS go back to the Lawn Club. They were amazing, Christine and Daniella know how to run an event and from the moment we first walked in on on our initial visit to the last guest leaving the night of the wedding they were amazing to work with and took care of every detail without batting an eye. Not only is the venue absolutely gorgeous, the food and service are top notch. I repeatedly heard from guests that it was the venue they had ever seen and they didn't stop raving about the food. From the perspective of a bride in the midst of a whirlwind day the Lawn Club was an oasis - once I arrived I knew everything from that moment on out would be taken care of and I could now relax and enjoy my day.

Thank you again for everything! It was a dream and I highly recommend anyone considering it to go for it!

The minute my husband and I stepped into the New Haven Lawn Club and met Christine, we knew it was the place we wanted for our day. We booked right away, which began such an enjoyable wedding planning experience and led to such an amazing wedding day. Christine, Daniella and their entire team were such a pleasure to work with from day one. It was a huge help having on-site wedding coordinators. Many of my friends who have gotten married did not have this luxury, and it is a huge perk of having your wedding at the NHLC. The venue speaks for itself. It is one of the most gorgeous, timeless and classic venues I have seen, and this isn’t just my biased opinion – our guests said the same thing! Prior to our wedding, the tasting we attended was so well done and mocked an actual wedding, which gave us a great idea of what our day would look like. When our big day came, the setup, service, food and the way Christine and Daniella made our vision come to fruition went above and beyond our expectations. Our guests are still raving about the service and the food. The timing of each course was perfectly planned – not too rushed, but totally efficient as Christine and Daniella knew we wanted as much time on the dance floor as possible. My husband and I felt like we were in great hands during the entire process, and this is invaluable seeing as there are so many moving parts and things to keep track of during the wedding planning process. I 110% highly recommend the New Haven Lawn Club to any bride and groom looking for a venue with a timeless feel that isn’t just another wedding factory. You and your guests will have an unforgettable wedding experience!

After reading reviews here on Wedding Wire, we knew we had to look at the New Haven Lawn Club for our wedding. We loved the venue from the moment we walked in and meeting with Christine to learn more about the venue and their capabilities just sealed the deal that this was where we would have our wedding. We had our ceremony and reception at the venue and everything was beautiful. Christine and Daniella were there for every question we had leading up to the big day and were very flexible when it came tailoring our menu, decor, etc. We were so pleased with how everything turned out and our guests with so impressed with the venue, the staff, and the food. I wish we could do it all over again!

I could not have been happier with both the venue and the service that was provided by Christine and Daniella. We loved the venue from the moment we walked in and were completely sold after meeting with Christine the first time. Her passion for both the venue and her job really came through and we could tell she really loved both. They have a very organized system where you know they are always on top of the details along the way. They were incredibly responsive to any questions I had and helped to form our vision. On the actual day of, everything was perfect. As the bride, I felt like they were taking special care of me, but all my guests felt the same way. The food and flow were perfect and everyone raved about everything. I would highly recommend the Lawn Club to anyone looking for a beautiful and special venue that is not a wedding factory but still has the means to accommodate a wedding well.

The New Haven Lawn Club did the most amazing job for us. We had a winter wedding on December 1st and took full advantage of the wonderful holiday decorations they put up immediately after Thanksgiving. The ballroom looked just as amazing as it did one year ago when we first picked out the place to hold our reception. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. Christine Brush and Daniella were the best with planning from the very beginning to the very end. The night went by so fast and we wish we could do it all over again! Love, love, love NHLC.....

I was looking for a venue that was not a cookie cutter place. This was (unfortunately) a very tough thing to find unless you wanted to spend a ton of money. Enter the Lawn Club - it's unique, with natural beauty and architecture. It was a hidden gem that not many people knew about.

We were greeted by the sweetest lady as we entered which just put our nerves to ease. We then were introduced to Christine and took the tour. We were both blown away about everything we saw. The Main Dining room was beyond our expectations and looked far better than it does in pictures. The balcony was a nice touch as well as all the fireplaces (which were functional!) and small details. We ended up booking an hr later as we did not want to miss out on securing the lawn club!

The next 1 ½ yrs were great. Christine and Daniella (C&D) were very responsive! We had many questions; they had even more answers. The one thing that stood out about them was that they genuinely cared about making our wedding perfect. We have been in other weddings where the wedding coordinator just seemed like it was another job. Not with C&D! They wanted to make sure that anything they could do to make your day perfect was done!

The food. What can i say about the food? Amazing! We had the Beef Wellington and the Maple Thyme Chicken. Both were fantastic and cooked to perfection. The selection on the menu was far from typical and wowed our guests. People still tell us to this day that it was the best wedding food they've ever experienced.

Overall our experience was WELL Above Average. If we could afford to renew our vows, we'd do it all over again at the NHLC for our 5 yr anniversary.

NHLC was a joy to work with. They provided many services that other venues did not offer including a coordinator (Christine) who walked with each member of my bridal party during the rehearsal to make sure they felt comfortable, candles, lanterns for the front, advice and guidance, and a fast response to any questions or comments I asked.

Christine completely takes care of your wedding day so that you have absolutely nothing to worry about. My wedding turned out more beautifully then I could have imagined and I highly credit the NHLC and the staff there for making my wedding day so perfect. I can not recommend the NHLC highly enough.

Christine and the NHLC team are amazing! We couldn't have had a better wedding day and a lot of that is due to the team's professionalism. Towards the end of the planning process I was nervous that I wasn't going to have a wedding planner but Christine really stepped in and filled that role for the day of. I had nothing to worry about. The venue itself is gorgeous. It has a very art-deco feel and doens't need much extra decoration. We were married in November and they turned all the fireplaces on so it was very warm and cozy as well. The pricing is very reasonable especially considering the level of service you get. The food at our wedding was awesome. Everyone loved the beef wellington! All in all I think we got an amazing deal on our wedding. Our guests said it was one of the nicest weddings they had been to.

The entire Lawn Club staff is absolutely phenomenal. From Christine and Daniella, to Andy and John, it is evident that they take great pride in their venue and care deeply for their clients. Warm welcomes from the staff greet you every time you’re there; to say they are accommodating would be an understatement, as they went above and beyond for our wedding and exceeded our expectations on every level. I constantly heard from friends how stressful planning a wedding was going to be…not if the Lawn Club staff has anything to do with it! Christine and Daniella were there for me from the very beginning. Any time I had questions or concerns, they were always there to put me at ease and guide me in the right direction. So often I felt as if I was their only bride, when in fact I know they had dozens of other weddings to plan. They assisted us with everything from booking our vendors (who were all fantastic!) to creating the color scheme and overall design for the wedding. They always responded to my emails in a timely manner and welcomed me to contact them as much as I needed whenever I had questions (which was a lot!)

A huge plus is that they only host one wedding a day, which makes a big difference, as we never felt rushed or pressured to ‘get out.’ The inside of the building is stunning and leaves you with very little that needs to be decorated, especially once they put out all of their candles, which are everywhere! All of the food, from cocktail hour, to dinner, to late-night snacks, was delicious! Months later guests are still complimenting us, saying that it was the most elegant wedding they’ve ever been to. The Lawn Club made it possible for us to have the wedding I always dreamed of and words cannot even begin to express how grateful I am to all of their staff for making my dream become a reality. We will forever reminisce about that wonderful day spent with our family and friends, in a place that cared just as much about our wedding as we did.

Saying Christine and the NHLC team was amazing would be an understatement! We had a wedding reception with 100 people and none of them could stop with the amazing feedback. From the first time we called to the moment we left they were so flexible in trying to meet our needs and making us happy. I can say that in the end the event literally went perfectly! We couldn't come up with a single complaint... besides the fact that it had to end at some point. Would defiantly recommend to anyone!

The Lawn Club is a venue that has everything – great staff, incredible food, beautiful grounds, and gorgeous interior. We had a spring Sunday brunch wedding and received an overwhelming amount of positive comments and rave reviews from our guests regarding the beauty of the venue and the amazing cuisine. One of my aunts said that she has three kids yet to be marry and she was taking note of some of the clever uses of space and the vast spread of exquisite food, so carefully prepared and presented. We worked with Christine, who was a real pleasure and an important member to add to our wedding team. She took the lead and reached out to all the vendors making sure everyone was on the same page. She was well organized and laid out exactly what we needed to do in order to ensure a smooth day. She was very accommodating in our requests for menu modifications as well as listening to our vision for our special day and helping to think outside the box to make it happen. Another aspect of the Lawn Club that we realized only after the wedding was how photogenic it is! Our guests had so much fun that they were posting pictures online of our wedding shortly after it took place (and as it was taking place!). We realized that from all angles and in both silly and posed photos, every shot looked like a million dollar affair - the outside balcony with the blooming trees, the rustic look of the bricks on the exterior, and the fabulous chandeliers, enormous windows, and candlelit fireplace in the ballroom. We also had our ceremony on site. It was our dream to get married right by a fireplace (there are many in the venue!) and we couldn’t have found a more perfect place than the Lawn Club. Thank you to Christine and all the staff for making our special day such a joyous memory!

We realized that from all angles and in both silly and posed photos, every shot looked like a million dollar affair - the outside balcony with the blooming trees, the rustic look of the bricks on the exterior, and the fabulous chandeliers, enormous windows, and candlelit fireplace in the ballroom. We also had our ceremony on site. It was our dream to get married right by a fireplace (there are many in the venue!) and we couldn’t have found a more perfect place than the Lawn Club. Thank you to Christine and all the staff for making our special day such a joyous memory! Read less

The New Haven Lawn Club and Christine were amazing! Our reception went off without a hitch. The food was fantastic, the wine glasses are huge and the service was excellent. The staff was attentive, on top of everything, and knew what we needed before we needed it. They even rolled our napkins and reset our places every time we got up to speak to guests or to dance. I wasn't feeling well, and they made sure I had exactly what I needed, even boxing up an extra dinner for me so I could enjoy it later when I was feeling better! Christine accommodated our every need, including several guests with dietary concerns, and was willing to work with us to make sure our wedding was exactly what we pictured. She is kind, always has a smile for her clients, and is incredibly knowledgeable about the Club, the history of the building, and weddings in general. She knows the best in the business, and she always had great ideas and recommendations. The building and grounds are beautiful and well maintained, and our pictures from that day are amazing due to the fantastic setting. I would highly recommend the Lawn Club to anyone looking to host a wedding or event.

The entire team at NHLC Catering was attentive and responsive to all of our wedding needs. Planning a wedding from 300 miles away could have been an daunting experience if it was not for the attention and advice we received from Christine. She made our vision a reality with ease and kept us calm and cool during the planning process. Our wedding day went off without a hitch. We were able to enjoy every detail because the NHLC team executed all the little additions we had planned to perfection. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. I have a severe nut allergy but the kitchen made sure that there was not a nut to be found so that I could taste everything without worrying that I might end up in the ER. The ballroom looked magical. We were able to have an old world feel in completely modernized and updated facility--very hard to find.

If you want a fantastic venue with top-notch professionalism from their coordinator, then the New Haven Lawn Club is for you! From our first appointment all the way up to our wedding, Christine was extremely professional, awesome to work with, and made every envision and dream that we had for our wedding day come true! I never lost trust or had any doubts in her or her staff, and always felt confident and secure working with them. She made the whole process extremely stress-free and enjoyable. And trust me, from one bride to the next, that is something that you cannot overlook, or take for granted!
I have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for Christine and her staff for making our wedding day unbelievable.
I highly recommend the New Haven Lawn Club, specifically Christine, without hesitation, for your wedding!
Happy planning!!!

We absolutely loved our reception at NHLC! We wanted a beautiful, unique venue and we definitely got it. The vintage architecture and style of the Lawn Club sets it apart from other reception facilities (not to mention the endless photo opportunities it offers). Christine is FANTASTIC to work with, going above and beyond to help us every step of the way during our planning process. I was so comfortable on our wedding day knowing she was in control of everything. The food was excellent and the lighting was perfect (where else could you have candles everywhere!?). Our guests are still talking about it!
One other special feature to highlight is NHLC's tasting, which is by far the best I've heard. Not only do you get to taste all of the food, but your table is designed how you might want it to look on your wedding day. It was such a great way to get different ideas and really picture how everything might look in the room.
We are so happy we chose NHLC and can't picture having our big day anywhere else.

Everything about the New Haven Lawn Club is exquisite! The NHLC took my breath away as I took my first step into the venue - this was it! Besides from the magnificent decor, the entire staff was amazing. Christine was extremely profressional and willing to go above and beyond to ensure perfection. I couldn't be happier with the results - the food was so scrumptiously delicious, and the wait staff was profoundly attentive. I had a wonderful experience and will try to figure out another way to have an event there!

Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish. From the staff and service to the food and atmosphere everything was wonderful. They attended to every need we had, from getting the groomsmen bottled water when they arrived, to bringing my husband and I a tray of Hors Devours while we had to take pictures, to packing up the car with all of our belongings when we left.

Having the option to have our ceremony at the Lawn Club was convenient and relaxing too because we didn't want our guest to have to drive from the ceremony to the reception and do a lot of waiting around. They seamlessly transformed the ceremony room into the reception room in an hour, which suprised our guests when they found out they were going back into the same room for dinner.

The food was wonderful. Everything was cooked perfect, tasted great and the presentation was artful. All the meals arrived at the tables with a lid to keep the food hot. The guests had a lot of positive comments on how their beef and chicken were cooked just right. The wait staff was very polite and attendant. They even re-roll the napkin every time you leave the table. Small details like that are a nice touch :)

I can't say enough good things about Christine the wedding coordinator at the Lawn Club. She made all the difference in how our day turned out. She answered all of my questions about food options, pricing, decorating... she helped coordinate the ceremony and how the schedule of the day would go and stayed until the end of the reception. I would have been a lot more stressed if it wasn't for Christine. She is a pleasant, knowledgeable and understanding person to work with!

If you want a classy wedding in New Haven, then New Haven Lawn Club is the only place to do it. I was planning my wedding while I was a law student and so I just did not have the time to take care of the million and one details that go into a reception. New Haven Lawn Club made everything so much easier - and made it look a million times better than I could have ever done on my own.

The New Haven Lawn Club and staff gave us our dream wedding. They were so attentive and responsive to our needs not only the day of, but throughout the whole planning process. They made the day go by so smoothly and worry-free. We were able to relax and enjoy our wedding because we knew They had everything under control. So many of our guests and family raved about the food, service, and ambiance. One of our guests even said that this was the one true gem left in this state. We cannot believe how well The staff transformed the ceremony into the reception, in such short time! I was breathless when I saw it. We said day one, and our wedding only confirmed it, that we picked the best wedding venue this state has to offer. Our wedding was a memorable experience thanks to the Lawn Club and it's staff.

My husband and I could not be happier with our experience at the new haven lawn club! Christine and Daniella helped us pull off the wedding of our dreams! They were incredibly helpful, accessible, and organized....made me feel like i didnt have to worry about a thing! As in control and organized as they were, they were still incredibly accommodating and flexible. Food was incredible and we received so many complements about the food, the wait staff and of course the gorgeous venue. Just beautiful. Exquisite. I'd highly highly recommend the lawn club to anyone looking for a gorgeous, elegant ambiance for their event, as well as unparalleled quality food and service, and knowledgable, accessible, warm, supportive staff. Perfection.

My husband and I were looking for a venue that was not a "wedding factory," one with class and glamour, and one that could provide the food and atmosphere to make our reception memorable for our families and guests. The NHLC delivered it all. We loved the proximity of the venue to Yale's lovely grounds, and the ballroom itself is breathtaking with high ceilings, gorgeous chandeliers, and stately fireplace. We had about 130 guests with a spacious dance floor and the room felt full without being crowded; although the ballroom technically holds up to 200 people, I would imagine that everyone could start to feel cramped at that number. There is separate, equally lovely cocktail area with a piano for cocktail music. The food was also DELICIOUS!

Christine Brush, who was our point of contact at the NHLC and our day-of coordinator, is excellent. She answered all of my emailed questions and concerns as I was a bride planning from afar, and met with us and our parents numerous times to make sure that the day would run smoothly. On the day of the wedding, she coordinated deliveries from the bakery, DJ, and photographer and beautifully set up multiple boxes of photographs and props that I had dropped off. Give her time to get back to your emails, though - she runs all of the weddings and receptions held at the club, so she is a busy lady!

We had many people tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The staff was very accommodating and handled a rowdy crowd that included many young professionals who enjoyed themselves immensely. One small point to nitpick: they did card our guests and policed the tables at dinner to make sure no one was giving anyone underage drinks. While I understand that the NHLC is liable and of course not obliged to serve anyone alcohol, it was a very bizarre scene at the start of dinner. Overall, though, we were very satisfied with our experience and would recommend the New Haven Lawn Club to future couples.

Our wedding was absolutely amazing with the assistance of the New Haven Lawn Club's catering group. The wedding coordinator is Christine Perusse, and she is awesome. She's very responsive and helpful to the best of her ability. The venue also made significant upgrades during their winter clean-up, including a hardwood floor stained black in the main dining room (gorgeous), fresh paint in the main dining room as well as the replacement of the kitchen doors which were previously less than attractive. They also darkened the hardwood in the ballroom, and it's stunning. I highly recommend this venue. My only complaint is that you have to meet the 120 person minimum for a Saturday night, but for most people that won't be a problem anyway. And if you don't have that many people, you can at least build the cost into add'l food for the people you do have in attendance like warm chocolate chip cookie and cold milk shooters!

The New Haven Lawn Club is an absolutely breathtaking space if you're into classic 1920s vintage elegance. It's very well kept and in perfect condition after all these years, especially as compared to some other venues we looked at in Connecticut. I fell in love with it from the moment I saw photos online and nowhere else ever stacked up as we continued on our venue search. It's also on the more reasonable side, price-wise. They're very flexible with tweaking the menu options so that you can design a dinner that works for your budget and your appetite. The food was great! And we loved having our wedding right in downtown New Haven - there are so many great restaurants and cool hotels around and it's very accessible for guests coming in from NYC or flying in from out of town. You might want to consider bringing in a wedding planner or day of coordinator if you have your wedding here -- the people who work there -- while very nice, down to earth, and knowledgeable --can seem a bit overworked at times and are occasionally hard to get a hold of. All in all, we're very happy that we chose the Lawn Club for our wedding day.
