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.

Priam Vineyards responded with the following comments:

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.

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.

Amazing winery with stunning views overlooking the hills from the vineyard. All inclusive made it easy to plan out wedding. The setting was up the hill from the tasting room providing complete privacy. Also a bridal loft to get ready made it easy to get ready.

I got married at Priam Vineyards in September and it was the wedding day of our dreams! The venue is beautiful and was the relaxing outdoor space that we searched for. On our wedding day, everyone was attentive and extremely professional. I kept waiting for something to go wrong but nothing did the entire day. All of our friends and family are still talking about how wonderful the day was.

The food was prepared by Riverhouse Catering and everything was delicious!!

The only problem that we had was with responsiveness before the wedding, but the person that we were working with has left so that may not be an issue anymore.

We would highly recommend Priam Vineyards for your wedding or event.

Erika and Chris' wedding was wonderful! Priam Vineyards is a fabulous venue. The fields and vineyards are lovely. Priam offers a great value considering their tents and facilities as well. The partnership with Riverhouse Catering is over the top. One could not ask for a better caterer delivering delicious food preparation, beautiful presentation and the best of the best in service. Erika and Chris's wedding could not have been better being at Priam Vineyards and using the wedding planning services of The Party Connection to coordinate all other vendors and include the many other details.
