While there are many different benefits for having your wedding outside, here are a few of our favorites.
Next to the bride, what could be more beautiful than Mother Nature's gifts. We have many here at Harrybrooke Park, including, the Gated Garden, Still River Falls, the Pond adorned with two elegant fountains. There are so many options for not only saying your vows in any of these special areas, but also, just imagine the pictures you will get here! Between the vibrant colors of the flowers in the Gated Garden, or the presence of the Still River Falls, your photographer will be delighted to have such a beautiful backdrop to work with and you will have gorgeous memories captured forever.
Who doesn't like to save money? With the flowers in the Gated Garden and the lush greenery all over the park, you won't have to spend a lot of money on floral arrangements or other decorations because Mother Nature has done for you. You can keep things very simple and elegant with the natural ambiance just by adding lantern lighting or simple white string lights to enhance the setting. It won't take much to add to the charming setting of Harrybrooke Park.
Did you know that Harrybrooke Park is a non-profit park? That's right! Founded in 1965, given to the People of New Milford, by Frank & Elizabeth Harden. This was their home and it was their wish to see it be used for events just like this. For recreation, for family, for fun! When you have your wedding at Harrybrooke Park, you are helping to raise funds to keep the park open. Harrybrooke Park receives no funding from the town or state and we work very hard to plan park wide events, such as weddings, to raise the money needed to keep this gem alive. So you see, by having your wedding at the park, you are giving back!
Sit Back, Relax, Enjoy Your Special Day
Probably the most important reason to have your wedding outside. Outdoor weddings tend to give off a more casual feel, allowing for not only your guests to kick back, but the bride and groom as well. Just being in the warm, fresh air is comforting, it's soothing. Also, the luxury of the extra space will provide you and your guests with the freedom to move about more and not be confined to one or two rooms. Everyone will enjoy themselves in such a relaxing atmosphere and love will be sure to fill the air!
