A family wedding had us in West Hartford CT this summer. The Elizabeth Park Rose Garden has the distinction of being the first municipal rose garden in the US (1904) and the third largest in the US. Imagine a garden so big that numerous weddings can all be conducted at the same time, and without crowding.
The Elizabeth Park Conservancy works in tandem with the municipality to restore, maintain and promote the many features of the garden. http://elizabethparkct.org/rose-garden.html
A stunning and dreamy place---well worth a trip!
