Situated on 80 acres in Dover, Massachusetts, the estate provides one-of-a-kind indoor and outdoor wedding experience.
Magnificent parlors and gardens evoke images of an elegant, historic era—making the estate a captivating backdrop for an unforgettable event. With its manicured flower beds, fieldstone pathways, and stone terraces, the Connors Center offers many beautiful locations for dream weddings to become reality.
The Main House
Within the Main House you'll find several distinguished locations for indoor celebrations. The Main and Dover Parlors—with their mahogany-paneled walls and working fireplaces—are ideal settings for smaller ceremonies or receptions. French doors in each parlor open onto elevated stone terraces with sunset views, making them popular locations for cocktail receptions.
The Estate Room, which seats up to 150 guests, enjoys an abundance of natural light as well as unobstructed views of the lush woodlands beyond thanks to a floor-to-ceiling window.

St. Cecilia's Garden
Many couples take their vows in the serene but lush St. Cecilia’s Garden—the plein-air, picturesque centerpiece of the Connors Center. Originally designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, landscape designers of New York’s Central Park, the garden features a natural stone staircase leading to a birch tree grove lined with fragrant flower beds.
Whether your style is vintage, rustic, or classic, St. Cecilia’s Garden is the perfect backdrop for your wedding ceremony. We provide classic white folding chairs for up to 200 guests.
“What a beautiful wedding venue! I searched high and low before finding this gem. It is close to Boston but provides a secluded garden feel for outdoor ceremonies, and the mansion was beautiful and elegant for cocktail hour!”
Lower Garden & The Arches
A beautiful stone staircase leads from the main terrace to our enchanting Lower Garden. Expansive enough to hold exquisite tented celebrations for up to 200 guests, the garden features quaint stone arches adorned with cascading ivy—lending the perfect ambience to your ceremony or reception.
