This was the only reception venue that my husband and I ever went to look at, from the moment we saw it we knew this was where the reception would take place. Start to finish it was a great experience and I was so impressed with how the event turned out. We've gotten nothing but compliments on the day and truly couldn't be happier with Priam.
Christine was a lifesaver and such a help to me throughout the planning process. She answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly and thanks to her our reception was perfection. Jeremy and I are so grateful to the entire team and are so thankful we chose Priam!

From the start of our time as an engaged couple, Gary and Gloria were in our corner. They actually helped me propose to my wife. Over the years of getting to know them and the staff it became clear that it was the only real option for our special day. They get to know you on a level that allows them to create something true to your love and your vision.

The wine: amazing. Rave reviews from everyone who attended. As a side note: the fact that they are truly devoted to growing estate wines rather than importing grapes from other locations really makes this a Connecticut true location.

The staff: All hands on deck. Flexible and thorough. You never have one of those 'where are they/what is going on/ moments.

Day of vibe: the vineyard is all yours. You know there isn't a later or earlier scheduled wedding that you need to work around. So relaxed. So personal.

The value: getting married in Connecticut can be expensive. I for one believe that anything worth doing is worth doing the right way. Priam Vineyards derives so much value out of the simple fact that you are guaranteed to have something so beautiful, so personalized, and so professional. We are still getting an outpouring of compliments on everything about that day.

For what it is worth: I don't believe there is a vendor out there that will do more to make your day special. A beautiful place that stands out amongst so many wedding factories with true devotion to giving the best experience to anyone lucky enough to have found and chosen them. Forever a part of our story and our hearts.

Priam Vineyards made all of our wedding dreams come true! Not only was it a great location but Gloria and Gary made the planning process of our big day so stressfree and effortless. Everything was so beautiful and not a single detail was left out! They were truly a great pair to work with. The location itself is truely unique and during our October wedding the scenery at the vineyard was breathtaking. All of our guests continue to talk about the amazing experience they had with the outdoor wedding ceremony & reception, including the plus of having full size bathrooms and a bon fire!!! The continued compliments reassure us that we made the right choice with Priam Vineyards! We were so pleased with the intimate feeling that was created for our smaller guest count and the extra effort that was put in to make our day so special! Gloria and Gary were so accommodating for anything that we wanted and I would definitely recommend Priam Vineyards to everyone if you want a spectacular event! I look forward to being able to continue to visit the vineyard and celebrate with their amazing wine!

We had a truly wonderful wedding at Priam Vineyards. The venue was charming among the grapevines. The tent was spacious. Riverside Catering provided phenomenal food. Of course, the fact that the weather was perfect helped! Gloria and Gary made us feel very welcome and at home. We have had so many comments about how spectacular the event was. Highly recommended.

We are still on a high from our wedding day out at Priam Vineyards a few months ago. We were drawn to the location as a way to do something a little different but still in keeping with the "classy, backyard" feel we wanted for our day. We had a small wedding (93 people) and everyone commented on how amazing and seamless everything was. One of the appeals (there are many) about Priam is the "one stop shop" aspect. We do not live in CT so, having the venue and catering all done in house was extremely appealing. No need to go in search of food and wine options. The provided list of their vendors from Priam was also very helpful from hotel suggestions to coach services - yes, hire coaches for your guests to go from the hotel to Priam - no need to worry about drinking and driving - everyone can take full advantage of the venue! The folks at Priam are wonderful to work with - we could not have done it without them and especially their wedding coordinator - she does flowers too - brides, talk to her - my flowers were gorgeous and well priced! The wine is good too - we highly recommend their rose. We cannot say enough about Priam - as long as the weather is on your side for your day (that is the risk you run but they are well equipped just in case) you will not be disappointed.

Thank you so much Betsy. We haven't stopped talking about the event. Loved the poster, it has inspired me to create a gallery of them for all of the brides. And that lobster and brisket!!!! WOW! I want to do a vignette of your wedding on the website if you approve. Take a look at the others when you have a minute. Again, thank you so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to help create this amazing day for you & Patrick.

Amazing! I attended a wedding in September at Priam Vineyards. The landscape was so inspiring. This place is truly a hidden gem. The venue is absolutely stunning and provides a private escape for large events and small private weddings as well. The wedding team was so accommodating every step of the way. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The coordinators took care of every detail and made what is normally a stressful experience a breeze! Having the ceremony and reception in the same place was helpful to out of town guests like me saving on transportation. Also, the surrounding area is filled with activities and points of interest for everyone in the bridal party, Mystic Seaport, Mohegan Sun Casino, and many hiking/outdoor activities to name a few. I would definitely recommend this resort to anyone and everyone seeking a magical place to host their special day.

My wedding at Priam Vineyards was a dream come true encompassing the most beautiful backdrop of the rolling hills of Connecticut and the vineyard. Our search for that "perfect" setting took us to many beautiful spots but what compelled us to choose Priam was Christine, Gary and Gloria. They were from the first day we met them to the night of our wedding such a pleasure to deal with and so accomodating in every way. We will miss working with them but you should know that this is a very magical place to begin your lives together and that the Priam team will help make your dreams come true!!!

I loved our Wedding at Priam Vineyards. Everyone was a joy to work with and the outcome was fabulous. The most important thing to me on the day of our wedding was that people liked the food and that they had fun. Everyone said the food was great, the site was beautiful and it was (super important) "relaxed and fun." Nobody felt rushed or regimented and guests legitimately thought the food was great... and of course, the wine was delicious. Every time I had a meeting with them to plan for the wedding it was easy going.
