  • We used the Essex Steam Train as transportation to our reception at The Lace Factory. Throughout the process they were very helpful, and on the way back from the venue, they very sweetly let my husband and I sit in the first class car on our own! It was the first time we got to have a moment to ourselves the entire day, and it was so appreciated. Our guests loved to be able to do something so different as part of our wedding. We'd highly recommend to anyone getting married at TLF!

  • We loves our EST reception which was held in their large function hall. The staff were responsive leading up to the event (thank you Malana!) and on site that day were friendly as well. We held our cocktail hour in the space right outside the "ticket booth" and loved being surrounded by the trains and our guests had a field day exploring and enjoying the scenic trains. There was space for dancing, food, bar, and the venue was very accommodating with what we envisioned and also helped prompt us through things we had not yet thought of which we were grateful for. It is very affordable and I would recommend to anyone. Thank you!

  • My daughter and her Fiancé will be married here in September of this year. This venue was our last appointment on a VERY long weekend looking at venue options across Connecticut. Most of the venues we looked at were overpriced for the space available or had advertised themselves as being able to accommodate a lot more guests than they could comfortably fit. We looked at one option who said (prior to our visit) that they could seat 125 guests. When we arrived, the wedding coordinator explained that they based that on the fact that most of your guests would be "hanging outside". The Essex Steam Train River Valley Junction Hall and Oliver Jensen Gallery is the only venue that we visited that could COMFORTABLY accommodate my daughter's 125+ guest and still have room for a dance floor and bar/hors d' oeuvres area. What really sold us on the Essex Steam Train facility was the Coordinator Pam Amodio. She is kind, welcoming and very professional. Her first question to my beautiful da... Read more

  • We got married at the Lace Factory in Deep River and used the ‘Lace Factory Connection’ offered by the Essex Steam Train. Our guests were transported to and from our wedding via the train. This was a really unique feature of our wedding to be able to offer our guests and everyone seemed to really love it. The train to the wedding got people excited about our wedding and the train home allowed us to keep the fun going! We would highly recommend the Essex Steam Train, ‘Lace Factory Connection’ to any future bride and groom! -Kara & Devon

  • The Essex Steam train ride to our reception was an amazing touch! Our guest still talk about how cool it was and our wedding was 4 months ago! One guest even stated " We felt like we were being transported back in time! It was so enchanting." The staff was super responsive during the whole planning process and very easy to work with. Definitely an unforgettable time for us and our guest!
