2205 Main Street
​Glastonbury, Connecticut

Couples interested in having an outside wedding ceremony must arrange a meeting with Michael, our Justice of the Peace, to discuss their plans and design an event that will be both meaningful and memorable.

"Thank you for making our wedding special. The food 
was delicious, the flowers beautiful, and
Mike's words a true reflection of our feelings."
Maureen and Larry 

We highly recommend incorporating the Unity Candle Ceremony into your program as a means of further expressing your love for each other as well as an expression of love and gratitude toward the Mothers of the bride and groom. We specialize in designing custom-made Unity Candles that are decorated with an appropriate selection of floral design and color to complement the Bride and Groom.

There are several focal points to choose from, such as the gazebo, formal gardens, white trellis and open lawn areas, depending on the number of people and the time of day to take advantage of the natural lighting of the spring and summer flowering seasons as well as the spectacular New England foliage.

"Thank you for making us feel like the only two people in the world!
It was absolutely perfect - a dream come true. The gourmet dinner
was phenomenal - Kevin truly is a talented chef." Suzi and Todd 

Unity Candles are to be used as an Anniversary Candle and should be lighted for one hour on each anniversary of the day of your wedding.

special days ever. Everything was spectacular."
Judy and Peter

one that attended." Merrill and Ryan

It is our aim at A Cardinal House to create for you an intimate, memorable and stress-free event. We are able to help you with all aspects of your special wedding ceremony including suggesting professional photographer Erin Tyrol at www.erintyrolphotography@yahoo.com and musician Kathy Schiano at www.millenniummusic2.com.

A Cardinal House specializes in providing memorable ceremonies outside, on our property, for parties of up to fifteen guests. Secluded from Main Street, the large landscaped yard and formal gardens abut town-own land bordering on the Connecticut River. The beautiful and tranquil park-like setting provides the perfect outdoor theater for your special day.

"Thank you so much for making our wedding celebration so
special. We received many compliments on the ceremony and wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your role and Nancy's hand-made Unity Candle."
​Michele and Terence
