CT Wedding Ceremony Sites by County

Many reception sites are perfect as ceremony sites as well.  Choosing a site that can provide both can save you site fees, decorating costs, and simplify travel for your guests. The site may have two separate spaces, one for the ceremony, one for the reception.  Or the same space may be used by ushering the guests into a cocktail area while the room is readied for dining and dancing.
