The wide open spaces in this part of Connecticut make for memorable celebrations, says Amy Cagginello, of Amy Champagne Events, in Milford. â€śThe amount of land you have up this way is so unusual,â€ť she says. â€śYou almost forget where you are. Things are done more slowly. It may take longer to get places, but itâ€™s beautiful.â€ť
LOCATION TO BOOK
Oenophiles and teetotalers alike will marvel at Hopkins Vineyardâ€™s bucolic, dreamlike setting. Cagginello suggests stringing LED-light globes and lanterns around the trees and pondâ€”and snapping photos by the vine-covered silo.
Friends and family can take in the regionâ€™s namesake hills and breathtaking foliage from above in an Aer Blarney balloon.
DJ Lion King is a real party animal, known for keeping guests on their feet into the wee hours.
Carmen Anthony Vacalebreâ€™s simply named Fishhouse and Steakhouse restaurants cater to all tastes.
Whether you choose pain de campagne or another of Bantam Bread Companyâ€™s petite loaves (available by special order), guests will appreciate the gesture. They are a â€śtasty snack at the end of the evening after too many glasses of champagne,â€ť Cagginello says.
