If you’ve got a Hartford, CT-area wedding in the offing for 2018, first things first: congrats! Now actually planning that magical day, of course, can cause no small amount of stress and anxiety. That’s certainly understandable: From guest list to location, there are a lot of logistics to juggle, and a lot of pressure—most of it self-imposed.
Well, we’re here to help. The Goodwin makes an outstanding venue for a Hartford wedding, delivering gorgeous and varied spaces, delicious and personalized catered fare, meticulous service, and—of course—impeccable accommodations smack dab in the Connecticut capital’s downtown.
Beautiful Settings for Your Big Day
The Goodwin boasts a diverse spread of functional spaces that can accommodate weddings of multiple scales and styles. Our biggest is the 1,192-square-foot Capital Ballroom, a grand, chandeliered venue that gives any matrimonial ceremony the ornate grandeur it deserves (if that’s the sort of atmosphere you’re after).
For other vibes and other sizes, we’ve got other rooms ideal for tying the knot and/or celebrating the occasion.
Topnotch Catering From Harlan Brasserie
When it comes to wedding-friendly food and drink, meanwhile, the Goodwin also stands out. Besides treating our guests to contemporary American gourmet deliciousness each and every day, our partners at Harlan Brasserie provide superb catering for weddings and other events large and small. Cocktail receptions, hors d’ouerves, buffets, picture-perfect plated lunches and dinners, top-caliber bar service—the Harlan Brasserie team can do it all!
