Travel

The closet airport is Hartford Bradley International Airport (BDL).

Wear

The ceremony and reception will be outdoors with various terrain and rustic surroundings. 

We're aiming for garden party cocktail attire with comfortable shoes.

To take the guesswork out: ties are unnecessary, heels not recommended, suit jackets are up to you as it may get cool at night.
