Wedding thoughts on Paddy's, Misquamicut or Mystic Aquarium...or others?

tbone2008 | Oct 15, 2008 01:46 PM

I'm planning a wedding on the East Coast while living in Los Angeles so I'm heavily dependant on the web. I'm from CT and my fiancee's from Boston, but we've been in LA for the past 6 years and are a little out of touch. We want a "New England" wedding that shares our love for the beach. I'm idealistically hoping to combine beachy casual with elegant/chic and would love to find a unique venue. Potentially looking at Easton's Beach Rotunda in Newport but came across two other interesting ideas while looking at caterers' websites and venues. Has anyone been to a wedding or had a wedding at either Paddy's in Misquamicut, RI or Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT? I know Paddy's looks a little clubby in the summer (I haven't been there), but I'm wondering if there might be some potential to turn the space into something really fun? And the aquarium looks beautiful...but is weird to be surrounded by fish while you try to eat and dance? The couple that we are, our guests are definitely going to expect PARTY, FUN, Unique...yet, because I used to manage a catering department...somehow elegant and delicious too. Thoughts? THANKS!
