The Burr Homestead is a lovely historic mansion set on 4.5 acres of land and less a mile away from the water. The home is rich with history and is preserved to look as I imagine it did when John Hancock was married on its grounds. The Homestead is owned by The Fairfield History Center which sits behind the Burr grounds. While there are three stories, only the main floor is available for rental with the exception of allowing the bridal party to get ready on the second floor.
We immediately fell in love with The Burr's charm and beautiful grounds. Patsy was our contact at The Burr and you couldn't meet a nicer woman who truly loves the venue. The Burr holds 80 people for a sit down dinner and 100 for cocktails. If your party exceeds 100, you may rent a tent outdoors.
Having your wedding at the Burr is making a commitment to a unique venue that isn't a wedding factory but be prepared to get your hands dirty and have some help with set up and break down. If you are a DIY maven or hire a phenomenal wedding planner, the venue will sparkle. Since there is no staff, catering, groundspeople etc you can do things your way but it is hard work. Also if you fall in love with the grounds, in the event that it rains be sure that you love and are happy with an indoor reception as well.
Working with other great vendors and being a DIY bride made The Burr the perfect match for us. I loved Patsy, the house is so intimate and the grounds were loved by all. We are so happy we chose this venue. Just be prepared to work a little bit harder than if you booked at a venue that comes equip with staff, catering, event coordinator etc. If it's a match for you, it will be magical.
