Daniel and I experienced a romantic, intimate winter-wonderland Connecticut wedding that we planned from an overseas location. The ceremony was held at the Coast Guard Academy Chapel, and a small reception followed for our families at the Stonecroft Inn in Ledyard. Hana Floral Designs prepared for me a stunning bouquet, and McQuade's Marketplace delivered our delightfully decorated and tasty cake. Our compliments to the Chef and Staff at the Stonecroft Inn -- if you're looking for that charming New England landscape -- look no further. Overall just happy happy happy!
My cake was beautiful and precisely what I had imagined. I coordinated the wedding from overseas, and they were still able to produce a perfect cake! Great price for small gathering receptions -- they threw in a false bottom for the cake to make it larger. Timely delivery, fresh flowers, and professional service.
We have nothing but positive things to say about the hotel staff, chef, and restaurant staff at the Stonecroft Inn. They worked with us for several months to coordinate our very small reception, without making us feel unimportant for having such a small event. I booked one of the suites for the night before and after the wedding so that I would have a 'pretty' place to get dressed as a bride. It was perfect: spacious, pretty, and relaxing. The hotel staff assisted my family in setting up the table prior to the reception, and they even received our wedding cake as it was delivered while we were at the church. When a family member got ill (not from the food), they assisted her and offered her an immediate accomodation at the Inn. All my stress simply vanished when I realized they had everything under control for our reception. The wait staff was professional throughout the entire meal, and they even have a pastry chef on staff who took special care of my cake. Shaheed, the chef, prepared a lovely meal to our exact requests from the menu (and breakfast was tasty, too!). I just can't compliment them enough! If you're looking for a small to medium sized venue for your reception (or even ceremony) -- look no further. The grounds, the inn, the staff, the food -- all 5 stars! Your perfect Connecticut country wedding!
The chapel staff was professional and helpful every step of the way. Access to the chapel is granted based on military affiliation, so it may not be available to everyone. For us, it was just right.
Great location, no complaints. Clean, large rooms. Close to highway for easy access. Military rates available
