Dolce Norwalk is a fabulous place to have a wedding. The facility is visually beautiful....the approach to the entry is a long winding road that passes a barn, pond, fountain, and acres of grasses, trees, etc. The building is a brick structure that is very attractive looking. Before you drive to the entryway you see the outdoor patio where the cocktail hour can take place, weather permitting. Very pretty with lots of tables and umbrellas. The entry is very welcoming and the staff pleasant, helpful and totally accommodating. Our wedding was in the ballroom and it was decorated so beautifully. Every detail that we planned was executed just the way we asked for it to be. The set up, etc., all done so nicely. We brought our own framed pictures, candles, etc. and asked that they be placed in specific places by the staff and they were done exactly as we wanted. The food was outstanding and everyone loved it. The word we kept hearing all night was "perfection". We were extremely happy with everything. It was Hazel Scudder who helped us plan our Dolce wedding and she was wonderful to work with. She is a person who totally loves her job and it shows. Anything we asked of her she did. She knows her job inside and out. It was a very happy day for our family and guests. We would totally recommend Dolce to others.

Dolce Norwalk was the perfect setting for our reception. We loved that people could stay there and it was more private and personal than a hotel. The grounds are beautiful and in addition to the ballroom they also have a cool bar area with pool tables and shuffleboard that was a fabulous spot for our after party. Hazel, their wedding coordinator, was extremely reliable and responsive and allowed us to do almost anything we wanted (bring in our own linens, chairs, etc) and got us everything we needed during our reception. Our guests are still commenting on the amazing food, beautiful setting, and friendliness of the staff. I could not have had a better wedding reception and I only hope someone else I know gets married there so I can enjoy the Dolce experience again!

We are so very happy that we selected Dolce for our wedding. Working with Hazel (who manages all wedding events) was such a pleasure. She is a wonderful person, very responsive, flexible and has so many fantastic suggestions to help make your day special. The venue itself was the ultimate convenience because we were able to have the ceremony (on the beautiful grounds outside), cocktail hour (on the terrace), reception, late night celebration at The Bar, and hotel rooms all in one place without the feeling of a regular hotel.

We LOVED our wedding at Dolce!! The search for the perfect venue was over as soon as we turned into the driveway at Dolce. From start to finish, our wedding experience was simple and fun. We felt as though our needs were always met. Hazel Scudder is just about the warmest, most professional woman you could meet. She was attentive to every last detail and made us feel like the only bride and groom in the world. The rest of the staff were professional, prompt, and polite. The food was also incredible. There's not one thing we didn't like about this amazing place!! We would get married all over again at Dolce!!! It is the best!! <3

The wedding of my dreams! Hazel and her team were all I could have asked for. Although our original plans to have the ceremony outside were trumped by unseasonably cold weather, it was no problem. The Dolce team quickly accomodated my request to move the ceremony to the main lobby/staircase and it was even more beautiful than outside! Everything from the rooms to the delicious food to the location and photo ops made this venue a dream come true. My guests absolutely LOVED every last part of the event. I would recommend The Dolce Norwalk to ANYONE!!

A hidden gem!!!

My husband and I live in DC but decided to get married in CT since that's where I grew up. Since 95% of our guests would be coming in from out of town we wanted a venue that had room for all our guests to stay and was cozy and welcoming. We knew Dolce was that place when we first drove onto the property. The venue sits on over 60 aces of land and it's peaceful and serene. The sales/event manager, Hazel, was extremely helpful and worked well with all our vendors to ensure we had the perfect wedding. She walked around and greeted all our guests and ensured their food was to their liking. Also, one big benefit to working with Dolce is everything is pretty much included in the package (even the wedding cake!). The only downside was since they are a private hotel they do have some rules that don't allow for a ton of flexibility if you want to do some out of the box things - this wasn't a huge problem in our case but just to note. All the guests loved the space and can't stop talking about it!

We had my daughter's happy and beautiful wedding here. It was wonderful and the feedback from the guests who stayed over (for two nights) was excellent. Hazel (our contact at the Dolce) could not have been a better or more experienced wedding planner. She thought of everything - she was sensitive to our budget, our fiddling and our customization of the experience including food and drink. We wanted to avoid the typical banquet wedding and have a weekend party with both sides of the family and friends. The rooms were luxurious and because this is a conference center and not a hotel, we had the place mostly to ourselves, including the running tracks, the pool, the gym, basketball court etc. etc. The food was good, the breakfast buffet generous and delicious. The grounds are beautiful, and the property well maintained. All of the staff were courteous and extremely helpful and flexible including serving staff and the front desk. They bent over backwards for our group. Highly recommended for such an event.. We had a blast

We were very pleased with our event at Dolce Norwalk - primarily because their wedding coordinator Hazel Scudder is out of this world! The venue is nice, the food is good, the guest rooms do the trick, but Hazel was WONDERFUL and made sure our event went off without a hitch. She helped us throughout the planning process and was there at the actual even to coordinate- she made sure that everything was thought out in advance and went off without a hitch. Absolutely could not have done our wedding without Hazel's help - she is fantastic!

The weather was great and everyone couldn't stop saying how beautiful the venue was. At this time of the year, Dolce Norwalk is the perfect setting for a fall wedding. Hazel helped us out with everything. She was very accommodating and had tons of ideas for us. The food was very good and the chocolate fountain was a hit. I didn't even get to try it! There was nothing left to dip the chocolate in, lol!! As for the staff, they were awesome. Very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend this place. Dolce Norwalk is a gem. Thank you to Hazel and staff for making our special day very memorable and awesome!!
