1948 wedding

Having weddings in the back yard at Hartford House has been a Wadsworth family tradition for over 150 years! Above Alice Wadsworth marries Trowbridge Strong in the formal garden on June 10, 1948.

The Hartford House grounds can be made available for a limited number of weddings each year from June to September. We now have a formal rate card for the wedding business. Click here to view or download a pdf version of the brochure to read our current rates and policies.

For either weddings or other events, we do not provide any in-house catering or equipment rental. For 2016 we have arranged for Partyman Catering of Avon to be our exclusive caterer. Please contact them directly at 585- 438-4321 to make your custom arrangements.

The walled garden on the south end of the house can be used for wedding ceremonies for up to 75 people.  Larger weddings can be held in the formal garden or on the front lawn overlooking the Genesee Valley.

Please call our Wedding Hotline at 585-500-3035 to discuss your event
