Reconnect in Connecticut

Calling all couples whose weddings were slated for 2020. Whether you postponed your nuptials, pivoted to an alternate plan or planned a party for two, you are probably in need of a (large) dose of rejuvenation. Connecticut is a great destination to renew your mind and body.

Looking to escape to an idyllic country retreat, amble across 58 acres of lush landscaped gardens and woodlands and rest your head on a plump pillow on a four-poster bed? Check out the luxurious Mayflower Inn & Spa in Connecticut where you will find 35 unique guest rooms in four charming buildings and a 20,000 square foot world-class spa that was recently reimagined by designer Celerie Kemble. Kemble infused Mayflower’s historic interiors with a floral palette, complex patterns and color, Gustavian antiques and contemporary art.

Just two hours from New York, this Auberge Resort is known for luxury and seclusion and is a perfect drive to tie the knot or just recharge. Having a small wedding in their formal Shakespeare Gardens is a great way to keep guests safe while living out your fairytale wedding fantasies.

The Mayflower Inn & Spa has been transformed into a discrete country retreat, offering guests an elevated experience where modern science meets ancient wisdom in a lavish and lush New England setting.
