The property is nestled on a 226-acre campus in Western Connecticut, offering fantastic views of rolling hills, historic buildings, and manicured grounds. You will never run out of gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photos.

 

The Woodward Chapel is the first Episcopalian church building in Watertown, built-in 1765. It was purchased by Taft School in 2010 and has been the home of many musical performances and hosting private events, including weddings.
