The New Haven Lawn Club, was originally founded in 1891 by a group of wealthy New Haven residents for playing tennis.
January, 1910, news article features the newly built home of the Lawn Club, which "...will no doubt be the most popular place for entertainments during the coming season."
Russell Sargent, Eli Whitney, and William Beebe were among its founding members. After being burnt to the ground in 1929, the Club was re-opened in the present Georgian mansion in 1931.
Designed by the famous New Haven architect Douglas Orr, the Club is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its architecture reflects both the Art Deco and Colonial Revival style that was popular at that time.
The New Haven Lawn Club represents a venue and a level of service that stands out amongst others. We understand
how important it is for each wedding to receive the attention to detail it not only needs, but more importantly, deserves.
The building is comprised of elegant rooms that will charm your guests and provide them with a change of scenery
throughout the evening. Stunning, yet simple, décor ensures that every couple is able to make the space their own.
“VERY PROFESSIONAL AT EVERY TURN”Christine Brush is the best event planner I have ever used in 25 years of planning events. She has an eye for detail and organization and she can read a client’s needs and tastes.
“WE LOVED OUR EXPERIENCE”They focused on detail and amazing service. They made our wedding a spectacular event which we and our guests will never forget! We enjoyed working closely with them over the past year. They are not a "wedding factory" and made our wedding unique with their creative touches and experience. Thank you!
“OUR WEDDING WAS WONDERFUL!”Lawn Club Fine Catering exceeded all of our expectations. Christine’s professionalism, attention to detail and customer service were truly extraordinary. Thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives.
“ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING TO WORK WITH!”I can’t say enough good things about her. Her attention to my needs and questions and overall professionalism brought me such comfort and ease during this planning process. Thanks, Christine!
“...EXACTLY AS WE IMAGINED”Everyone on staff from the receptionist, to the waiters, to my event coordinator, Christine Brush, was attentive to our every need. The rooms were set up exactly as we imagined … and looked spectacular.
“EVERY DETAIL WAS PERFECT”I cannot praise the lawn club highly enough. Christine and Daniella are perfect coordinators. They go above and beyond every step of the way and make the day beautiful, smooth and stress-free. The location is impressive: trust me — your guests will rave about it! The food is incredibly delicious. I strongly strongly recommend that you use this venue.
“THE BEST DECISION WE MADE”To say the experience was excellent is a vast understatement. The wedding director, Christine Brush, made sure everything was perfect and was with us every step of the way. We were able to get ready on-site, which I highly recommend doing. We did both our ceremony and reception at the NHLC. During cocktails, the staff flipped the ballroom and the transformation was incredible. Our wedding was perfect. The ballroom is gorgeous, the food is delicious, and the thought that went into each and every detail was brought to perfection. The trusted vendors recommended by the NHLC were all top-notch. We wouldn't have changed a thing.
“THE WHOLE PACKAGE”The New Haven Lawn Club is not only a beautiful location ... but they go to great lengths to make your wedding plans into a seamless reality, with great attention to detail and incredibly responsive and professional staff. Christine serves as the location and wedding manager, but also performs many tasks that you would traditionally pay a lot of money for a separate coordinator to do. She has incredible taste and a sense for what will work logistically. Couples would be wise to solicit and take her advice! And the food is really incredible. Even when cooking for hundreds of guests, LCFC makes each plate look and taste like you're at a top restaurant.
“MY GUESTS WERE BLOWN AWAY”The lawn club is strikingly beautiful. They vintage charm is just unlike any other venue. Christine and her staff were fantastic. She recommended many excellent vendors and she steered us in the right direction for many different aspects of the wedding. She has been coordinating for a while and it shows. My guests could not stop raving about the food! The filet was cooked to perfection! I cannot say enough about the staff at the lawn club. They were extremely accommodating and I would recommend this venue to any bride young or old. It just has that little extra magical feel that no other venue does.
