As you are planning your wedding, one of the most important things to establish is deciding on the location where you and your fiancé would like to get married. This can be a daunting task, especially in Connecticut where beautiful wedding venues are abound and choosing the perfect location for your Connecticut wedding reception can become extremely overwhelming. Fitzgerald’s Fine Catering has worked with many wedding reception venues across Connecticut and to continue our ongoing tribute to the many venues we have worked with, this month we will be showcasing the Gallaher Mansion at Cranbury Park in Norwalk, CT.
The Gallaher Mansion was built in 1930 by the acclaimed industrialist Edward Beach Gallaher. The spacious mansion has many details throughout its interior including custom woodworking, stained glassed windows, and walnut veneer paneling, which seamlessly extends from the wall to the ceiling. There is an extended garden terrace and flourishing garden that creates a beautiful natural atmosphere for entertaining outdoor guests.
If you are planning on having an intimate gathering, the interior of the mansion has a maximum capacity of 100 guests. For parties that are above 100 guests, it is recommended that the lawn be utilized to construct a tent, which will need to be provided. However, the venue will be able to provide the chairs and tables at your request.
If you would like to perform your ceremony at the mansion, the Tea House Porch or Sculpture Garden will furnish a beautiful backdrop that will provide gorgeous pictures. The bride can make a grand entrance as she walks down the flagstone walkway to the porch, which provides a natural arena for the wedding party, vows, and readings.
