Country Chic

For a rustic, country-style reception and outdoor ceremony, look for a spot with exquisite natural scenery. We think it's hard to beat The Barns at Wesleyan Hills, set among willow-shaded ponds. Say your vows on one of two small islands, which are connected to the site's sprawling lawns by charming footbridges. Then, head to its turn-of-the-century "big barn" for the party. It offers spacious 40-foot ceilings, exposed beams and a hayloft-style balcony. Capacity: 200; catered exclusively by Pavilion Catering. Available April through November; rental fees start at $1,200.
