Whether you’re overwhelmed by the thought of planning a large-scale wedding or you’d just rather tie the knot in a rustic setting, the Connecticut countryside is the cream of the crop for intimate weddings. Get away from the everyday with your betrothed — here are five reasons to elope in the Litchfield Hills.
1. Endless Options For An Itinerary For Two
Well all know an elopement is more than the “I do’s”, so why not solidify your bond with a countryside itinerary? Whether you’re a canoeing couple or just love to taste fine wines, northwestern Connecticut offers the perfect pastime for every pair. Let our lakes and mountains be your hub for outdoor adventure, or get the adrenaline pumping at the Lime Rock Park racing circuit. For the equestrian lovers, ride off into the sunset (perhaps literally) on horseback at Mountain Valley Farm.
2. Tastes As Romantic As The Views
Eloping in the Litchfield Hills means sinking your fork into some grass-fed beef, crisp vegetables fresh from our kitchen garden, and artisan cheeses at our very own farm-to-table Morgan’s Restaurant. Of course, a romantic dinner for your wedding wouldn’t be complete without a taste of champagne or fine wine from one of the Lakeville area’s local vineyards — we’ll arrange a three-course dinner to celebrate your big day.
3. Peace, Quiet, And Privacy
Finding an alluring, yet secluded spot for your Connecticut wedding won’t be a problem. Pick a picturesque mountain outlook, or find a lakeside perch, complete with bonfire. No matter where you go, swapping out noisy, urban distractions for the quiet ambience of the Litchfield Hills allows you to focus solely on each other (and your gorgeous getaway).
4. Every Moment Is A Photo-Op
Although you’d be hard-pressed not to take a gorgeous photo in the Litchfield Hills, we recommend investing in a professional photographer to hit the shutter on those frame-worthy shots. The most popular backdrops include rugged mountains, the wooded paths outside our cottages, and of course, the glistening waterfront at the edge of Lake Wononscopomuc. Don’t worry about searching -- our wedding planners here at Interlaken will set you up with a superb shutterbug to capture moments that’ll last a lifetime.
5. You Don’t Have To Break The Bank
We all love to save cash, and embarking on an intimate wedding in Connecticut means forgetting about the expense (and stress) of catering to dozens (or hundreds) of guests. Keep your wedding simple and serene with a little bubbly, a farm-fresh dinner, and a beautiful countryside backdrop — our elopement package will help you plan your intimate ceremony at our countryside resort in the Litchfield Hills.
