My husband and I purchased a home about 3 years ago in Collinsville, Connecticut. I am completely in love with this quaint town. So many things to do, the people are so nice and it's in the heart of everything happening! Rt. 44 is right down the road, where you'll find great organic and natural grocery stores like The Meat House. Go a little further and you can pick up fresh produce at either Tulmeadow Farms or Rosedale Farms. Rosedale Farms offers their own farm made wines, a great corn maze and so much to do with the kids.
So, with my love for this town. It really is a wonderful area, really great schools and just the overall atmosphere is lovely. We decided to open up shop in the old Ax Factory in the center of Collinsville. Of course, it's the busiest time of wedding season for us (the fall). So, we're doing a bit at a time as we can and hope to be ready to meet clients sometime in October. It's really a fabulous space with lots of light, super tall ceilings and tons of character as well as history with the old factory feel. I'll be posting images when we finish renovating the space!
There are so many great artists and businesses in the center of Collinsville. La Salle Market is there if you want to grab a breakfast sandwich or coffee, dinner at Crown & Hammer pub, art classes with Kate at River City Art Center or even a birthday party with the kids there and authentic tacos at Husk.
Here's a few pics from the fabulous Alissa Dinneen from a wedding we did together in August at Lord Thompson Manor. Enjoy and we hope to see you soon!
