The Branford House was the perfect wedding venue! We had originally planned on getting married at a barn venue, but due to the number attending that idea quickly shut down (especially since we would have to pay for the venue and then pay for a pricey tent). The mansion is so beautiful on its own that you can save a lot of money on decor alone - and the price for the venue is hard to beat! Everything was so lovely, people are still raving about the wedding weeks after and I really believe that the venue has a lot to do with it.

We had our wedding here and you really can't find a more breathtaking venue in CT. Our guests are still talking about it. Yes it is somewhat pricey and you do have to provide your own caterer, rentals, etc which gets time consuming and expensive. But if you are looking for a spectaular view and a beautiful, unique reception spot this is the place for you. People were in awe of the grounds and the architecture. We are very happy with our decision. FYI: They have A/C but we were sweating bad once all the guests were in there. It was very hot unless you stood directly in front of the a/c unit. It wouldn't have deterred me from booking it but the heat was annoying and did not do good things for my hair lol.

The Branford House is an absolutely stunning venue. We had the ceremony outside on the lawn by the water, cocktail hour on the patio, and dinner and dancing inside. It's great for a summer wedding (like hours), but we did see gorgeous photos of inside weddings during the winter holidays. It's not the cheapest of venues, but it's worth every dollar. The house manager is most helpful, and she helped ensure that the planning and big day went smoothly. The Branford House will let you select your own caterer, DJ, florist, etc. When we first saw the Branford House, we knew we wanted to get married there, and it turned out to be the most perfect day. We highly recommend the Branford House (plus, the cost of renting the mansion goes towards the university's educational programs, so that was a nice added bonus).

We were SOOO happy that we chose the Branford House for our venue! The management was amazing and helped us plan every step of the way. They were very flexible and accommodating. Any questions we had were answered in email or over the phone right away. We had our ceremony on-site and had to be indoors due to weather, but it was so easy to make the last-minute change and we were happy there was a pretty room with a fireplace to use as our backdrop. We ended up having a ridiculously stormy day for our wedding and because of the beautiful architecture and features inside, we were still happy because it felt like we were in an old castle. All of our guests loved it and said it was so unique! The waterviews are gorgeous and would recommend this venue when you can show the beauty outisde as well!

The Branford House is a stunning mansion on the water in Groton, CT and only 5 minutes to Mystic. The entire house is yours for the whole day so there will not even be a chance that there could be another bride passing you by. It will but YOUR day. The photographs are amazing because the grounds are impeccable. The inlaid wood throughout the house bring the house to life. The stone patio wraps around the property and offer very dramatic views of the water and the sunset. The house is fully air conditioned should you have a summer wedding. I could not imagine having our wedding in any other place. It was a perfect location to hold your fairytale wedding.
