A Beautiful Bride at the Eolia Mansion in CT

The Eolia Mansion
ford CT

This is actually the second post on a wedding venue in a row. I am not forgetting about makeup, it is just I love nothing more then to write on things that inspire me. In my travels as a Makeup Artist working on brides I am blessed with the fabulous opportunity to come across some pretty neat places. This is another much talked about Venue in Waterford, CT in Harkness State Park.

Right of the back this place reminded me of one of the Newport Mansions. You don't expect the view in the back to be so amazing but when you see it, it takes your breath away. I am definitely not a photographer and these few pictures do this place NO justice. This mansion sits on over 230 acres of lavish green lawns and has 42 rooms. Overlooking the ocean and adorned with beautiful and lavish gardens that change with the seasons. To think that at some point this belonged to someone as their home is astounding. I long for the day I can wake up in a place like this!! Even if it just on vacation!

When it comes to weddings, you can choose where to exchange your vows. Whether it be in the Pergola and covered Tea Room with views of the award winning Italian Gardens and beautiful ocean views or you may choose the Sea Side Amphitheater which is surrounded by all of the beauty of nature. Either way you cannot go wrong as both provide breathtaking views!

The history of this home dates back to 1906 when it was built and the purchased in 1907 by Edward and Mary Harkness to be used as there summer home. "Eolia" was named after the island home of the Greek god of winds. Edward was heir to a fortune of his father's investments in John D. Rockefellers Standard Oil. He also gave many charitable gifts in his time and was a noted philanthropist. The mansion was left to the State of Connecticut in 1950 and became a part of the State Park System in 1952.

Whether you are planning the day of your dreams or just simply a history buff looking to explore the grounds, Eolia should be on your "To-Do" list. At the very least, simply pack a lunch and enjoy the park!
