The New Haven Lawn Club, founded in 1891 and housed in a stately Georgian mansion in the New Haven's prominent East Rock neighborhood, has long been a venue for the city's most elegant social gatherings. As special today as it was to debutantes in the 1920's, the Club's distinctive architecture - including its ballroom's barrel-vaulted ceiling, crystal Art Deco lighting, and checkered terrazzo floors -  has been carefully preserved to maintain its refined and graceful geometry. Although the building is historical, Lawn Club Fine Catering's menu and event planning are anything but old-fashioned. Our sumptuous menus aspire to delight and surprise guests with international flair and creative use of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Professional event planners anticipate all you and your guests need, work hard to execute your event exactly as you imagined it, and will not rest until we have exceeded your expectations.

I could not have asked more from a venue for our daughter's wedding. The Lawn Club was extraordinary! The venue itself is beautiful with understated elegance. The service could not be better. The food was sensational. Their event planner, Christine Brush is passionate and committed to make certain that your day is extra special and runs without a hitch. She made the whole process stress free and delightful. Christine made our daughter's wedding one of the best days of our lives. We are forever grateful to her.

We got married at the NHLC September 23, 2017 and the entire day was absolutely perfect. The NHLC is an exceptional wedding venue for SO many reasons. The venue is stunning; truly a hidden gem in New Haven with so much character and class. Separate cocktail hour room which has it's own unique charm and an over the top ballroom that will have you swooning (think vaulted ceilings, large chandeliers). This is nothing like your typical cookie cutter venue, but at the same time a space that allows you to make your own. On top of that, you get the phenomenal wedding coordinator Christine, who helps you along the way. She was always available to answer questions and help out through the wedding process. Most importantly, the couple weeks leading up aka the most stressful time, where you are finalizing details, dropping off all of your items, etc. she makes a breeze! The day of was perfect, everything ran smoothly and flawlessly and as bride, groom, family, and friends no one had to worry about a single thing or lift a finger. In addition to the gorgeous venue and amazing Christine, the food is REALLY good. Easily the best food I have ever had at a wedding and can be comparable to a five star restaurant, going hand in hand with the exceptional service. All of our guests were raving about the evening and so many people have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Also, the initial contact with Christine to get pricing/package information, etc. is completely transparent which is refreshing when searching venues. Our wedding was our best day ever and a huge reason was bc we chose the NHLC for our reception.

We got married at the Lawn Club on June 3, 2017 and I’m still beaming from ear to ear just thinking back on that day. It was beyond anything I could have imagined, and the Lawn Club was a HUGE part of making that happen. Our guests are still commenting on our wedding - about how AMAZING the entire Lawn Club staff was! What’s more, our guests could not stop talking about the food, saying it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. This is not your standard “wedding food.” This is a top-notch, gourmet spread. Go for the pepper-crusted tenderloin appetizer - we heard so many compliments about this one. And the mushroom ravioli pasta is to die for. We added a pasta course, and people who didn’t even like mushrooms loved this dish. And Christine Brush. She was key in executing our day and I can’t say enough good things about her. We ran into a transportation issue when our contracted bus didn’t show up for the day. She helped us remain calm and at the end of the night, helped coordinate Ubers for anyone who needed to get back to the hotel. And on top of that, when we were back at the hotel for our ‘after party,’ Christine stopped by on her way home to drop off a few items that we had left at the Lawn Club. Christine went above and beyond that day and we are so happy to have worked with her and the entire staff. If you want a breathtaking building in the New Haven area, with the best staff and food, definitely make a visit to the Lawn Club.

Everyone at the New Haven Lawn Club was wonderful. Christine was so helpful and pleasant to work with throughout the whole planning process. She was extremely organized and was available to answer questions from the minute we signed our contract. Christine was on site the day of our wedding to ensure everything went smoothly. Her attention to detail and compassionate nature was extremely appreciated and helped alleviate my stress. The Lawn Club is such a beautiful and elegant venue (with amazing food too!). We received many compliments from our guests regarding the staff, food and venue. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue. I only hope someone else I know chooses this venue so I can attend a wedding here again as a guest.

There’s a reason you see so many five star reviews for the New Haven Lawn Club – they really are that good. After checking almost every wedding venue Connecticut has to offer for our travel-themed extravaganza, this was our last best hope. To say it was the best singular decision we made during the entire wedding planning process is an exercise in understatement. What makes the NHLC special: - It’s not a wedding factory. Yours is the only wedding there that day, and the staff there is dedicated to making it as special as possible. - The wedding coordinator, Christine Brush, is simply fantastic. No detail is overlooked. Anything that goes wrong will be made right to the greatest extent possible. She has more than a decade of experience in weddings, and it shows in her calm, cool professionalism and her guidance in bringing your vision to reality. - They will make your wedding your own. If you have special requests, a theme, or something out of the ordinary (we got married with the seating arranged in a circle around us in the ballroom), they will do their best to make it happen. In fact, I think they quite enjoy it! - Speaking of the venue, it’s magnificent. If you’re not into brick backgrounds for pictures, Yale, and its stunning architecture, is minutes away. The ballroom is old-style beautiful, and with the right up-lighting, itransforms to match your color palette. Best of all – no 1980s carpets you see at most venues! - The food is to die for. Most people don’t remember the food they ate at a wedding. Trust me, most of them will remember the cuisine here. - They carefully maintain their preferred vendor list. The ones we chose were all top-notch and did a fantastic job (HK Photography, Correlation, Vantage Point Films, JCakes, Candi’s Floral Designs). My understanding is everyone on that list is fantastic. I could go on, but this is already getting long-winded. Best of luck on finding your venue and do yourself a favor – check NHLC out!

We got married at the Lawn Club in May, 2017. From the first time I even saw photos of the venue, I knew it was where I wanted to get married, the 1920’s-espue look and décor are incredible and a perfect setting for a wedding. Every aspect of the Lawn Club was perfect. From the service to the food to the landscaping to the candles that are everywhere during the wedding; every detail made our wedding day everything we hoped for. I also can’t say enough about Christie who is the in-house coordinator. For the entire 1.5 years between picking the venue and our wedding day, she made the planning process so easy for me. She was responsive, professional, friendly and helped our rehearsal and wedding day run so smoothly. I can’t imagine having gone through this process without her. We were thrilled with all of the vendors she recommended as well. I can’t say enough great things about the Lawn Club and all of the staff there. We wouldn’t change a thing.

The second I got engaged, I was looking at different wedding venues near the New Haven/Fairfield, CT area. The moment I clicked on the New Haven Lawn Club website, I knew right away I wanted to hold my wedding reception there. I quickly called up the Club and spoke with Christine with Fine Club Fine Catering and rest is history. She was beyond helpful and understood exactly what I had envisioned for my wedding. When I went on my first walk through if the club, I fell in love with the building. The entre atmosphere and energetic of the building was so positive and wonderful. The club is filled with little pops of art and historical pieces that you cannot find anywhere else. The ballroom is breathtaking. The chandlers are absolutely stunning and adds so much elegance to the room. The food tasting event that was held at the club was outstanding. We tasted everything from the appetizers to the main entrees. It was so hard to choose because everything tasted was amazing! When it came create my wedding timeline, Christine was so helpful. She was able to provide the best venders, recommendations and helpful advice. She is a true professional and cares about each and every one of her clients. I would highly recommend having your wedding at the New Haven Lawn Club. My wedding was flawless, exciting and the best day of my life. Thank you Christine and team for making my wedding a dream come true!

Choosing the NHLC for our venue was the BEST decision we made throughout the whole process. To say the experience was excellent is a vast understatement. The wedding director, Christine Brush, made sure everything was perfect and was with us every step of the way. We were able to get ready on-site, which I highly recommend doing. We did both our ceremony and reception at the NHLC. During cocktails, the staff flipped the ballroom and the transformation was incredible. Our wedding was perfect. The ballroom is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the thought that went into each and ever detail was brought to perfection. The trusted vendors recommended by the NHLC were all top-notch. We wouldn't have changed a thing.

The Lawn Club is an absolutely AMAZING wedding venue, and the in-shop planning and coordinators Christine and Daniella are absolutely top notch. From day one, Christine and Daniella were a pleasure to work with. They recommended vendors who were exceptional and great values (Bud Maltin, Sweet Maria's, and Fleur De Lys), which made things easy when planning remotely from Boston. They were prompt in responding to our emails and phone calls, and whenever we came down to New Haven greeted us with a smile and lots of personal attention. They were a joy to work with. On the day of, Christine was on top of every detail and did a fantastic job. The venue is gorgeous, with a high-vaulted ballroom and NHLC provides lots of candlelight. It made for a magical and regal setting for a wedding. We did the ceremony in the ballroom as well, providing a sunlit venue that was still airconditioned in the July heat (a must for our grandparents). Christine and her team did an amazing job flipping the ballroom during cocktail hour! Christine also had an attendant follow us and our bridal party around to make sure we had a little extra attention and had a great time, which was a wonderful touch. At the end of the night, they packed our car for us and sent us on our way. Finally, let's not forget the food. It was AMAZING -- I had several people tell us it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Forget overcooked chicken and dry fish -- everything at the Lawn Club was just right and, quite amazingly, exactly as it was at the tasting. The portions were generous, and overall it was a great value (we had the cheaper food option but swapped in some of the fancier hors d'oeuvres while getting rid of the sorbet as well as the crudités and cheese table to keep the cost the same, and they were very flexible in accommodating our requests). I would HIGHLY recommend the NHLC. They do a great job and are a joy to work with.

Anyone who chooses this venue is in good hands. You truly felt like your day was special to them, which was refreshing.
