Weddings at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, Connecticut


You can get married on the beach near the lighthouse, then have your reception inside the carousel building. Or have a picnic reception on the nearby picnic tables.

Because Lighthouse Point Park is on the eastern shore of the Quinnipiac River, people might think that the lighthouse is in East Haven, Connecticut.

Connecticut's state and municipal parks are easily accessible and visitor-friendly. Many of them are free or just charge a small amount for parking. Quite a few of the parks have pavilions or other buildings available for rent, usually at fees far below what a commercial wedding venue would charge. A Lighthouse Point Park wedding is no exception.

Jeannine and Ryan had their beach wedding at Lighthouse Point Park near the lighthouse, a very short walk from the carousel. Most of their guests stood on the sand and there were a few chairs for people who would have had difficulty standing. The staff at Lighthouse Point Park were very accommodating for the people who were in wheelchairs.

Lighthouse Point Park weddings can take place near the lighthouse for which Lighthouse Point Park is named, on the beach, in one of the pavilions, or in the carousel building. Can you imaging saying your "I Dos" while riding a merry-go-round?
