Private Events

Bride in the gardens of Burgwin-Wright HouseFor your historic occasions,
a peerless venue

The lush gardens and charming courtyard of the Burgwin-Wright House provide a uniquely beautiful setting for private events, such as weddings, wedding receptions, corporate functions, dinners and cocktail parties.

Comprised of seven distinct areas on four different levels, the gardens provide endless possibilities for staging, allowing you to create a truly one-of-a-kind event in a breathtaking yet intimate environment.

Outdoor lighting throughout the gardens creates an enchanted landscape after the sun goes down.

Rentals include use of the gardens, courtyard, the Florence Kidder Room, catering kitchen and restrooms.

The facilities are available from 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Guest capacity varies according to the type of function and the location within the property.

Especially for weddings

Arched arbor in the Burgwin-Wright House GardensThe gardens of the Burgwin-Wright House are ideal for small, intimate weddings for groups of 80 or less. The arched arbor in the orchard is the most popular spot for the wedding ceremony,  but many other areas lend themselves to the exchanging of vows. See the photo gallery below for images of private events in the gardens.

Similarly, the gardens provide a multitude of stunning backdrops for wedding portraits. More information...
