Winter weddings are charming, whimsical and downright magical. For anyone who lives on the East Coast, where winter snowstorms leave behind breathtaking backdrops, it can also become an especially perfect time for unforgettable photography to remember your wedding.
If you’re planning a winter wedding in Connecticut and need some ideas for making it a truly magical day in Hartford, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of our top picks!
Picture-Perfect Photography Locations
There are a number of landmarks in the capital city where you can get a perfect shot for your big day. We’ll start with some ideas to capture the enchanting outdoors in your photos.
Bushnell Park in the winter is a pretty place where ice skating and holiday décor make it inviting and nostalgic as a backdrop. There is also the Bushnell Park Carousel to snap some wonderland style photos that are truly unique.
The Hartford Riverfront also presents a terrific view of the outdoors with the Connecticut River and the downtown skyline behind you. Take pictures right by the water via the Riverfront Boathouse. Stunning dusk photos truly set the images apart.

You don’t have to be outdoors either. Lots of amazing scenic shots can be taken right inside of Hartford City Hall. There’s ample natural lighting, immaculate architecture and romantic spots like the giant marble staircase to take photos on. This is a great way to get a truly vintage and classy vibe for your photos.
An Elegant Venue in the City
What’s a winter wedding with all of this great photography without the perfect ceremony and reception to match? After coming in from the cold outdoors spoil your guests at a truly breathtaking venue unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. A sweeping staircase that flows down from a 3,000 square foot balcony, marble, limestone, brass and bronze accents, an opulent ballroom – it’s like a scene right out of the Great Gatsby.
The Society Room of Hartford is where luxurious, elegant weddings in the city happen.
