About the Waveny House

Waveny House is a large Tudor mansion that sits majestically overlooking 300 acres of Connecticut countryside. Constructed in 1912 for the Lewis Lapham family, the house was designed by W.B. Tubbs of Greenwich, while the gardens and grounds were laid out by Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr., of Boston, a well-known landscape architect. Now owned by the town of New Canaan, Conn., Waveny House is a popular venue for weddings, receptions, social events, and cultural activities. Wander down the flagstone walkways past the gardens and fish pond to discover the beautiful Walled Garden, an intimate nook for a small ceremony. Note: Air conditioning is not available, and tenting is prohibited.

CAPACITY: 160 guests
