{Venue Spotlight} Guilford Yacht Club

Though we have had more rain than sun these days, things have been everything but dreary in GG land! In early April, as we dreamed of the warmer days of summer that are now in close reach, the Guilford Yacht Club underwent a bit of a facelift. After some fresh painting and re-carpeting throughout, GYC is ready to conquer weddings, showers, and corporate events galore in 2015!


From the moment you walk through the front door, Guilford Yacht Club does everything but disappoint. With a cascading staircase in the front foyer, and an opulent event space just beyond the passageway, GYC has incredible versatility in its presentation. The ballroom, complete with a dance floor, overlooks the gorgeous stonework patio (where your outdoor cocktail hour could transpire), and a luscious green lawn. Just to the right, the ballroom is complemented by the indoor bar area, which includes an exquisite stone fireplace. In there, spend a moment on the couch, warming up by the fire with your old college roommate, or your new spouse, and a glass of sauvignon blanc (or a crisp mint mojito–whichever strikes your fancy).

Up the roundabout staircase, you can find the quaint bridal suite to your left, and the entire far wall of the club finished in grandiose windows. From the second level balcony, with an expansive view of Long Island Sound, you can just imagine your very own dazzling ceremony on the great lawn just below you, and guests enjoying mini lobster rolls on the balcony for cocktail hour.


From a nautical-themed bash complete with starfish napkin holders and spiked Arnold Palmers, to a more traditional affair of champagne-colored napkins and table-side wine service, Guilford Yacht Club can accommodate even the most outlandish of ideas and Big-Day-Dreams!


We dare you to make those dreams come true at GYC, whether it be for your wedding, anniversary party or for your next corporate event.
