Welcome to The Meadows! Whether you are planning the most intimate of weddings, a gathering of friends and family, your society’s fundraiser, or a corporate event for the ages, it is important to choose a venue that is as unique as you are.

Surrounded by soft meadows and a serene salt water marsh, The Meadows has been designed to be both a beautiful and functional environment in which your every need has been anticipated and planned for. The Meadows can accommodate up to 250 guests and limits its use to only one event at a time. It’s close proximity to many area attractions make it an easy destination for you and your guests.

If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, the covered patio can provide a rainy day alternative thus eliminating the need for a tent.  The stone terrace covered by a beautiful white pergola overlooks green rolling hills and is a shady and relaxing environment for cocktails as you welcome your guests. The elegantly designed ballroom is revealed after cocktails and invites you in for a romantic reception.

We recently unveiled a major renovation and added the amenity of a new bridal suite with its own private lounge and entrance for your enjoyment.  The lounge can also be used to host a family dinner or party after the rehearsal ceremony.

The Meadows along with our award winning catering partner, Gourmet Galley Catering, specializes in pre and post wedding events, such as ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, welcome receptions, engagment parties, and post wedding brunch, for up to 250 guests.  Located adjacent to Stonington Borough, the venue is yours exclusively for any private function.

The Meadows offers all-inclusive packages for events of any style and size. Our commitment to you runs deep and we promise that no matter the size, style, or budget for your event, with your help we will create something memorable and, as always, distinctly your own.

For more information please contact our Event Coordinators emilyp@gourmet-galley.com or call Gourmet Galley at (860) 415- 9589

We planned our wedding in 7 months, and one of the biggest reasons we picked The Meadows was that they had our chosen date. Our wedding couldn't be more perfect! This choice turned out to be the best decision for us. I loved the bridal suite and how intimate the grounds felt. The ceremony setup was also perfect for us. The biggest disappointment for me was the tiny dance floor, which was not at all what I imagined at our wedding. Fortunately, the planners from the venue we worked with were very attentive and accommodating, so we solved the problem by renting an extra 24x24 dance floor, which totally transformed the ballroom! When I first walked in with my husband into the fully set up space it felt like I was dreaming! We had around 80 guests, and with the extra dance floor we still had plenty of room, it felt really comfortable, just perfect! Kelly was great with helping us with all the ceremony details, and Amanda from Gourmet Galley was very helpful with all the service details and very responsive to all the emails. Thank you so much for making my dream wedding possible!

A perfect setting in Stonington for our wedding. Ian, the owner was very accommodating for our ceremony and reception. We loved the location so close to Stonington Borough and Mystic, it was perfect, thank you!

Loved EVERYTHING about this venue! My (now) husband and I knew immediately after visiting The Meadows that we wanted to host our reception there. The grounds are charming, romantic, beautiful, and had everything we were looking for. Although we held our ceremony off-site in a church, they have a beautiful on-site ceremony location. They also have a beautiful, well-kept lawn that served as the perfect backdrop for our cocktail hour and on-site photos. The lawn was spacious (great for lawn games!) and has a great fire pit! The lawn, accompanied by their lovely patio and market lights, created an incredible ambiance. Inside, the space was perfect! Extremely clean, beautiful chandeliers, nice neutral colors, and lots of windows for natural light. Additionally, the staff from Gourmet Galley was wonderful! From the time we booked until the time of the wedding, there were some staffing transitions but we ultimately landed with Amanda Verrips as our planner and event coordinator - and I am so glad that we did! I can't say enough good things about Amanda! Throughout all of the planning, Amanda was extremely prompt, responsive, professional, thorough, and flexible. She answered all of my (many) questions and made great suggestions. Full disclosure, I was a wedding planner for 5+ years and my (now) husband was also in the hospitality industry for many years. Needless to say, we had a lot of questions - and high expectations - when it came to food, service, and the overall event execution. I am happy to say that Gourmet Galley, and specifically Amanda, more than exceeded our expectations! The food was absolutely delicious and we received so many compliments from our guests. Also, the pricing is very reasonable! I would highly recommend The Meadows to prospective couples! It's an amazing venue!!

My husband and I just hosted our wedding at The Meadows this past Saturday. It was an absolutely amazing experience all around. The Meadows is a really beautiful place to get married. The front of the venue from the street can be misleading but there is an incredible view in the back. It was a really beautiful backdrop for our pictures! The Meadows are still green and there was a beautiful tree across the way that was turning, just perfect for our fall wedding! We also had so much fun in the bridal suite. It’s huge and so well set up! We spent the whole day there, practically, getting our hair and makeup done. It was private and has lots of amenities (a shower for instance!). There is a cool table with a long mirror and 3 stools and lots of plugs so 3 girls could sit together to get their hair done! There is also a pretty, private changing area. My coordinator was great. She helped me with my table design, time line, set up my things the day of, and made sure we were well taken care of during the evening. She helped get us down the isle as well, which I was nervous about because we weren’t in a traditional setting. The cocktail hour was perfect. We could still be outside because the weather was cooperating! The patio is covered with a clear cover so it still let’s in a lot of light. The drinks and the food were just what we wanted and we‘ve received many, many compliments on both the food and the venue. (we had a paired plate- scallop and shrimp skewer and a filet- YUM!) We would highly recommend the Meadows Wedding Venue and their caterer Gourmet Galley Catering to anyone getting married.

My wife and I were married June 27, 2015 on the beautiful grounds of The Meadows. We chose The Meadows because it met all of our expectations as a wonderful place to be married and we were not disappointed. The ceremony, relaxing with family and friends on the covered patio, a great meal and entertainment in the beautiful ballroom were everything we had hoped for, and more. The food and the service were excellent and we owe a great deal of thanks to the capable staff who made this such an exciting day for us. My wife fell in love with the new bridal suite. She and the bridal party prepared for the ceremony in total privacy and luxury before making the grand entrance to the walkway. We both highly recommend The Meadows to anyone who is looking for an unforgettable experience in an environment that matches the moment.
