Perfect Wedding Venue! - An Eventective User from Avon, CT

I couldn't have chosen a better local for our 90 person wedding reception. We had challenges with a Tropical Storm on the evening of our event! The staff was wonderful & quickly moved the ceremony items inside to avoid the high winds and rain. Beautiful space that has a "nature" feel as it is a boathouse on the Connecticut River. I would host an event here at a moments notice without a thought!
