Having my entire wedding weekend at the Dolce Norwalk was the best decision I ever made. The entire year and a half leading up to the wedding from the large room block to the 3 parties of over 150 people, planning was seamless thanks to Hazel Scudder. She was incredibly organized, easy to work with, personable, flexible, and truly made our weekend perfect. The staff throughout the weekend was incredibly accommodating particularly Patricia, who made sure the weekend itself was seamless, low stress and amazing. The grounds at the Dolce are gorgeous and made for an incredibly beautiful and fun filled weekend for all of our guests. The rooms are pristine. The food at each event was more delicious than the next. There is something for everyone at the dolce. From Bocce, to Tennis, to Pool, to Basketball, to walking trails, the enormous bar and incredible staff…I can’t say enough. I just wish I could spend every weekend at the Dolce! Special thanks again to Hazel for being so incredible, professional and organized.

We had our wedding reception at Dolce. It is a great choice! Dolce is a secluded countryside hotel. There is a pond with bridge and fountain which is a perfect venue to take photos. The cocktail and the reception rooms are elegantly decorated. The catering manager, Hazel, is so nice and helpful. She also makes sure that my husband and I eat something during the reception. My guests who stayed at Dolce liked the hotel room and service.

I can't say enough good things about Hazel and this venue. From start to finish, planning with Hazel was extremely easy and everything was perfect. I received many comments from guests on how wonderful the food was and what a beautiful venue Dolce is. All of the servers and bartenders were super nice and checked in to make sure everything was going well. Even the breakfast the next morning was great! Would not have changed a single thing. I can honestly say the quality of my wedding surpassed even my expectations - A++!!! Thank you!!

We couldn't be more thrilled to have had our wedding at Dolce in Norwalk. We wanted a place that had beautiful grounds, hotel rooms on site, and that would give us the wedding we imagined. Dolce did it all. The grounds are stunning and we have the most beautiful photographs from the day. The hotel rooms were very nice and it was perfect to have our guests all in one place. The food was really great, our guests are still raving! And Hazel the wedding coordinator is fabulous. She is energetic, kind, and truly wants you to have the best day. She answered all of my questions (and I had alot!) and she made you feel like your wedding was the most important one. She was helpful in working with my florist and other vendors, taking away a good deal of stress during this whole process. Overall it was the best choice and we are so happy with Dolce!

There aren't enough words to convey just how awesome and amazing our wedding at Dolce Norwalk was. We still have friends and family telling us that our wedding was the best they've ever been to.
Hazel was beyond amazing at handling any questions or concerns I had - big or small, and even coordinated with a past bride to get us an arch for our ceremony so we would not have to pay extra to rent one. She kept everything running efficiently and everyone loved her - she also made sure my husband and I ate our meals - something a lot of places don't do!
We had a personal server for our sweetheart table that took such good care of us. I was not able to finish my entire dinner and the kitchen graciously heated it up and had it brought down to our suite for me when the reception was over. Allyson was there and ready to handle whatever request we had.
The venue itself was beautiful. We were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony but due to rain had to be moved inside. Hazel worked with us the week of to find a "Plan B" location we really loved, and her and her team gave us until the last possible second to make a call on indoor/outdoor (ceremony at 5:30 we decided at 4:30). The setup of the event space with all our decorations and personal touches was absolutely perfect as well.
To top it off, the food was amazing. Guests are still raving about it - from our tasting, to cocktail hour, to dinner we never had one food item that didn't blow us away.
Dolce Norwalk also coordinated our rehearsal dinner (an outdoor BBQ which is very much our style) and accommodated us with s'mores for friends and family by a fire pit as a welcome event for the weekend.
You get so much for what you pay for and it's not only because Dolce Norwalk is a well run event space but because they truly treat every bride and groom (and their guests) as if they are family.

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 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!!

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!

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.
