FullSizeRender26Thank you for your interest in Apricots for your Wedding Reception. We look forward to the opportunity to customize your wedding to best match our unique facility with your tastes and needs.

Your special day should flow like a great symphony. It is not a meal, nor is it simply a gathering, it is an event! The place you select for your party should address your singular needs. Our 32 years of experience in these affairs puts us in a unique position to be your partner in this occasion.

In any Wedding Reception the Devil is in the details and there will be a lot of questions that remain after you review this information. Our job is to set a great platform for a wonderful event and the flow of a reception is as important as the items we serve. If the general structure of our receptions meets your needs and desires then we should get together to discuss your reception further. Please consider the following factors while deciding whether or not Apricots is the right place for you.

We offer Garden Style, Dinner, and Luncheon options.

pdf-icon Garden Style Wedding
“Garden Weddings” are unique Apricots events! This is not a sit down dinner, not a buffet, nor simply food stations, but an affair where the bride & groom are the “First Guests” at their own party. Food is served from the beginning of the reception until the very end. There is no single time to sit down for dinner.

Wedding Ceremonies

Wedding by the river at Apricots in Farmington, CT
Our beautiful location along the Farmington River may be the perfect site for your Wedding Ceremony. These ceremonies are generally done for afternoon receptions or small evening ceremonies. The natural beauty needs little additional decoration to look well. Our tented area acts as a backup in inclement weather. There is a $200 charge to use our site. Come down and take a look to see our treasure.

Award Winning Cuisine

Our N.Y. Times 3 star rating speaks legions about what we are. Connecticut Magazine’s Readers Poll has voted us: “Best Desserts” – Statewide & “Continental Cuisine” – Runner Up Statewide (actually Contemporary American fare).

Outdoor Cocktails & Hors D’oeuvres

Start your party on our outdoor patio overlooking the beginning of the river’s rapids. Dine in our Ann Howard decorated dinning rooms that graced the pages of Colonial Homes Magazine.

Professional Staff

Service ties all we create for your party together. You won’t find a “banquet staff” at Apricots. Your staff will be the same people that have built our reputation in the kitchen and on the floor.

Wines & Beverages

Wines at Apricots
As an annual recipient of the Wine Spectator’s “Award of Excellence”, we know what we are talking about. Let us help you select the wines and other beverages that meet your budget, tastes and needs.
