About the photo: Mystic Museum of Art (MMoA) is on the bank of the Mystic River, a couple of blocks down from historic downtown Mystic's Bascule bridge, quaint shops, and a just few steps from restaurants. This photo shows the main building at 9 Water Street. MMoA has acquired 15 Water Street as well, preserving a local landmark and adding space to feature local artists.
About the photo: MMoA is officially in the Town of Groton, and this photo shows the view to the east, across the river to the Stonington side. Only the groom and best man didn't have problems with the breeze ruffling their hair. (Ask me to talk about why there's a bowl of water and towels on the pedestal.)
About the photo: The terrace of Mystic Museum of Art is an ideal space for a wedding reception. This informal reception followed an al fresco wedding on the beautiful lawn by the water.
About the photo: Galleries at MMoA can be converted into spacious rooms suitable for large weddings and receptions. Weddings can be held in comfort here year-round, cool in summer and warm in winter.
About the photo: Mystic River Park offers a little privacy for an elopement in August. There are always boats going by on the river, just yards away. Mystic's Bascule Bridge is just going up in the background. It's a short walk up the hill to the original, real Mystic Pizza. (Just don't expect to see Julia Roberts.)
About the photo: The schooner Argia sails smoothly down the Mystic River from Mystic, Connecticut out into the waters of Long Island Sound. The Argia has enough room aboard for an entire wedding with guests, and gracefully enables elopements as well. You'll love your wedding aboard the Argia! She sails from May through October. (The captain of the Argia sometimes lets newly-married couples have their pictures taken at the wheel, but I can't make any promises.)
