Virtual program presented by Connecticut Historical Society

From colonial to modern times, how did Connecticans tie the knot? How did they celebrate? What did they wear? And how did some of our cherished wedding customs originate? This program uses CHS’s extensive collection of wedding clothing, accessories, photographs and prints to examine some of our ideas about what makes a “traditional” wedding, and what those traditions can reveal about how ideas about marriage have changed through the years.

A Connecticut Historical Society program, presented by CHS Museum Educator Taylor McClure. Taylor teaches educational programs for school and adult groups both at CHS and on location. She is a former high school social studies teacher, with a B.A. in History and a Masters in Teaching from the University of Washington. 

Learn more about the traditions explored in CHS’s program by visiting KTM&HC’s exhibit “Tying the Knot: Ridgefield Weddings in the 20th Century,” which runs from September 30 to November 7.
