The Eolia Mansion at Harkness is one of my favorite places in CT. The setting is truly romantic with the Victorian Gardens, it’s setting on the L.I. Sound. If you’ve ever seen the movie `Meet Joe Black’ there is a scene towards the end where the character `Death’ (Brad Pitt) is ready to take Anthony Hopkins to the `other side’, his time overdue (spinoff on `Death takes a Holiday’). Hopkins’ daughter is in the middle of her reception outside a beautiful mansion and Hopkins and Pitt are off in the distance with the mansion as a backdrop. This is what I always think of when I see Eolia. So conducive is the setting to a festive celebration and the day was perfect in every way, especially Leigh and Christian’s first dance which was a joy to watch. Wonderful hosts, wonderful wedding, great time! Thank you Leigh and Christian!
