Venue | Glastonbury Boathouse 

dan and I bumped into each other at a gas station. had some steamy eye contact and the rest was history. we reconnected at the gym a week later and he asked me out to get coffee

dan asked me to get coffee. we arrived to dunkin donuts and the first words out of dan’s mouth are “I hate coffee”. I thought oh great this is off to a great start. I was so nervous I didn’t stop talking the entire 3 hours we were together. i left the date assuming dan would never talk to me again but the next day came and again he hung out. clearly, my nervous babbling charmed him. and ironically enough, dan’s addicted to coffee more than I am now!

it was freezing and snowing! we were on a walk that I was not dressed properly for but dan was insistent that the walk continue. eventually, we stopped and he proposed. my first words after “yes” were can we go somewhere indoors where it’s warm.

we loved the view of the water and we are suckers for a good porch. the venue was simple but beautiful and felt right. I also liked that as a park we can always go back there.

The Venue: Along the serene banks of the Connecticut River, you’ll find the Glastonbury Boathouse. A unique waterfront venue with a central location makes the Glastonbury Boathouse the perfect place for your waterfront wedding. They offer a  build-your-own-event approach, for the freedom to create an event exactly how you envision it. Ideal for couples seeking panoramic views, charming architecture, and tranquil ambiance. The boathouse itself is a charming structure, blending modern design elements with rustic charm. Its large windows allow natural light to cascade into the space, illuminating the airy interior and providing uninterrupted views of the glistening water and lush greenery. The riverside patio, with its scenic vistas and gentle breeze, provides a dreamy setting for exchanging vows. The reception area offers a warm and inviting space for guests to dine and celebrate. The open floor plan allows for effortless flow, encouraging guests to mingle. Large windows frame the river views, infusing the space with a sense of tranquility and serenity. The interior is minimalistic which allows décor to range from elegant and sophisticated to rustic and whimsical.

As the day transitions into the evening, the riverside setting takes on a magical ambiance. The sun sets in a blaze of colors, casting a warm glow over the boathouse and the water, creating a backdrop under the starlit sky. The twinkling lights reflected on the river add an enchanting touch, enhancing the romantic atmosphere and setting the stage for a night filled with love, laughter, and dancing.
