We can't say enough about this beautiful venue. Our daughter's wedding was absolutely wonderful. We got so many compliments about the venue and its unique beauty.

In addition, the wedding event planner we were assigned (Pam) was so responsive. We called her so many times to ask questions before the wedding. She was great at responding to emails as well.

It was a magical day at a beautiful location. Enough said...

We couldn't have been happier with our venue! Food was amazing, and service was great. I didn't have a worry on my mind and everything went smoothly! Katelynn and Judy were absolutely wonderful, very helpful, professional and on top of everything. Whether Katelynn was helping fix my bussel for the third time or conducting a change of ceremony seconds before it began because of the torrential down pour she was nothing but sweet, dedicated and good at her job. The venue was more then we could have imagined! Thanks!

Saint Clements Castle is beautiful. Our banquet manager Tabitha was extremely helpful throughout the entire process of planning our wedding. She was always quick to respond to email's or return phone calls with any question we had. Kaitlyn was in charge of our evening and really helped with many things including but not limited to: Keeping guests away so we could eat, brought us any drink we wanted asap, she went above and beyond when there was unexpected circumstances to keep the bride happy. Great establishment. Every person we dealt with was friendly and helpful.

Having our daughter's wedding at Saint Clements was the best decision we made in all of the wedding planning! They were professional, the grounds were gorgeous, the food delicious and the wait staff was wonderful. The day of the wedding was a little overwhelming for me as the MOB with all the details of the day. The moment we arrived at the Castle, they took over and handled everything. Many people remarked on how the wait staff called them by their name and made sure that their meal was perfect and all needs were met. All the guests were impressed by the beauty of the castle and the grounds. Everyone I dealt with there was professional and accommodating. Our daughter now has beautiful pictures to always remind her of her special day as everything was taken care of calmly and professionally.

This is a beautiful place, reasonably priced, and the staff was incredibly helpful. My only advice is to make sure that the banquet captain you meet with a few days before the wedding has all the details that you've worked on with your coordinator through the preceding months. One of our requests was to do no cake cutting, but that detail was missed and an impromptu feeding of the bride and groom happened.

Absolutely AMAZING!!!! I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding venue. They took such amazing care of my husband and I. The food was unbelievable. I got more compliments about the menu from my guests than I could possibly have imagined. From the very first visit up to the moment we left after the wedding, Saint Clements Castle was perfect. They unpacked and set up everything and then repacked and loaded it into my parents car at the end of the reception. They thought of everything and were there to take care of any issue that arose during the reception. They treated us like royalty and made our wedding unforgettable.

I can't POSSIBLY say enough positive things about the Staff at Saint Clements Castle!
These people are professionals! They obviously work extremely hard. There is nothing "generic or factory" about this wedding venue. It is like an absolute fairytale. Our tour from Judy was so beautiful & informative. It was the only tour we had gone on. Judy had our date available & was so flexible with everything that we just couldn't walk out of there without booking, & we are SO glad we didn't!
It was everything it had promised to be. First & foremost, the service was out of this world. Guests at our wedding actually made comments to me about how nice the servers were. You just never hear that! We had a personal server named Cieara who was adorable, & took great care of us throughout the night making sure our drinks were always full. She never once took away a plate on our table without asking if we were finished, even if we had walked away from it. These are things that should go without saying, but it goes a long way considering most places aren't that attentive.
The food was delicious! Our guests loved it so much, some even mentioned they had ate so much during cocktail hour that they were almost stuffed at dinner time. So you can only imagine how good the hors d'oeuvres were. Huge portion sizes, I can't imagine that anyone was hungry leaving our wedding.
Katelynn was our planner for the day (ceremony/reception). She was such a genuinely nice person. She made a point to wish us well at the end of the night & gave us a box with more cake to eat later, which was so sweet. She made sure everything ran smoothly & on time w/o sacrificing anything at all.
Everything was just so beautiful & perfect, we could go honestly on and on!! It was a magical night. We are so grateful that we were able to have our very special day be held at such a truly amazing establishment. We have wonderful lifelong memories to cherish thanks to the Staff at Saint Clements Castle!!

My new husband and I cannot recommend Saint Clements highly enough! With his family from south Texas and never seeing a New England fall, we knew this was the place to have our wedding! The grounds are flawless - and one of the best kept in the state. We met with Pam who answered all of our questions and listened to all of our ideas. We signed the contract that night after visiting other venues in the area that couldn't compare. At our final meeting, she seamlessly went over all our details to confirm and went above and beyond to get us several craft beer choices for us and our guests. We knew we were in good hands.

We decided to have our ceremony in the sunken gardens and our reception in the Prince Edward half of the castle as we fell in love with the interior (the pub and courtyard were a huge hit for our cocktail hour!).Tabitha was our Wedding Day Manager, and she went above and beyond our expectations. Always keeping us on schedule, always food and drink at the ready, and always anticipating anything we needed or wanted. She is professional, calm and a wonderful gal! She and her staff were fantastic.

The food was excellent and plentiful. We were nervous not tasting the food before signing a contract, but we heard no complaints and loved every bite we took! Highly recommend the baked stuffed shrimp and filet mignon duet. At the end of the night, the staff packed up all the gifts, top tier of the cake, etc. and packed the car for us. Best surprise was finding an additional box with a beautiful message written by Tabitha. Inside were our two slices of cake we didn't get to enjoy as we were mingling with our guests. A fabulous end to a fabulous night.

Worth every penny and then some...

I don't know where to begin...this place made my dream come true. I had the perfect wedding and it was thanks to the staff at Saint Clements. Originally I was working with Carol and then she left Saint Clements. I freaked out at first but Judy took over my wedding and she was AMAZING!!!!! She answered all my questions, she was extremply patient and worked with me on everything I wanted. Still I had major axiety about the day of because she wasn't going to be there, she told me Tom would be my day of coordinator. I had never met Tom so I was extremely nervous. How wil lTom know what I want when i've been working with Judy? Well, I don't know how but he knew everything I wanted and made the day go by so smoohly. He knew I was nervous and extremly stressed out and he made sure to keep me calm and handle everything. My bridal attendent was a sweetheart and made sure I wasn't hungry or thirsty. The food was fantastic (I had the shrimp). Tom made sure everyone was having a good time, made sure everything was going smooth, even kept asking my parents if they wanted a drink or needed anything. Judy and Tom are amazing, I can't say it enough. They know what they are doing and they are good at it. They make you feel special and keep you calm and keep assuring you everything is going to be fine. My day was magaical and I want to thank Saint Clements for making my day so amazing!

The staff was very professional and knew exactly how to run a successful event without a hitch. My ceremony was supposed to be outside on a rainy day, and they quickly took advantage of a break in the weather to put together a beautiful ceremony area in the courtyard.

This castle is absolutely gorgeous. Even though it is a higher price point and made the greatest hit to our budget, I absolutely do not regret the decision to chose St. Clements. For starters, the staff was amazingly attentive. We planned our wedding in Connecticut while living in Michigan. Our wedding coordinator, Pam, was amazingly helpful, and I can't imagine the headache this would have been without her help.
The staff puts everything out for you. The only exception is anything you have a florist bringing and perhaps some ceremony decor. But, all the table numbers, the card box, the guest book, the favors, you name it, are taken from you during the final meeting and put out to your description on your big day. No mess, no stress.
On the day of, the staff was again, wonderful. They carried trays of coffee and champagne up to the bridal suite for my girls and I while we got ready. After the ceremony, my husband and I decided to take a walk together to have just a little time for the two of us. The staff carried a tray of champagne and hors d'oeuvres out to us so we wouldn't be hungry.
Everyone commented on how beautiful the site is. Depending on the room you chose, your ceremony is either in the sunken gardens, full of beautiful statues and hydrangeas and roses in bloom. Or, you may be on an expanse along the Connecticut River. The building is a gorgeous castle full of beautiful antiques.

This castle is absolutely gorgeous. Even though it is a higher price point and made the greatest hit to our budget, I absolutely do not regret the decision to chose St. Clements. For starters, the staff was amazingly attentive. We planned our wedding in Connecticut while living in Michigan. Our wedding coordinator, Pam, was amazingly helpful, and I can't imagine the headache this would have been without her help.
The staff puts everything out for you. The only exception is anything you have a florist bringing and perhaps some ceremony decor. But, all the table numbers, the card box, the guest book, the favors, you name it, are taken from you during the final meeting and put out to your description on your big day. No mess, no stress.
On the day of, the staff was again, wonderful. They carried trays of coffee and champagne up to the bridal suite for my girls and I while we got ready. After the ceremony, my husband and I decided to take a walk together to have just a little time for the two of us. The staff carried a tray of champagne and hors d'oeuvres out to us so we wouldn't be hungry.
Everyone commented on how beautiful the site is. Depending on the room you chose, your ceremony is either in the sunken gardens, full of beautiful statues and hydrangeas and roses in bloom. Or, you may be on an expanse along the Connecticut River. The building is a gorgeous castle full of beautiful antiques.

We looked at ~6-7 prospective venues before settling on St Clements Castle. To start out, the venue is gorgeous! What sold us originally was Pam Marshall - she gave us a tour of the grounds going into great detail about plan A (sunshine), B (no rain but the grass is still wet) and C (pouring rain). It seemed like the Castle staff was ready for every emergency. Once we signed a contract they were extremely prompt and detailed on getting back to us for every question or concern. On the day of, our coordinator - Tom, did a wonderful job keeping things on track and making sure we didn't have to worry about a single thing. St. Clements Castle does not do food tasting; however, that's really not a problem. The food was amazingly well prepared and the waiters are extremely courteous and professional.

I recently got married at Saint Clements Castle. The venue is amazing. More beautiful than you can imagine in person than from pictures online. The staff were unbelievable. The day was perfect, everything was on schedule and as planned. Judy was great while planning the event. I live in AZ so was planning this long distance. She always had fast email replies and answered all my questions. Kate and Justin were GREAT the day of the event. The day couldn't have been better, they were on top of everything and very attentive. The food was amazing as well as all the servers. All of my guests were very impressed with everything and kept complimenting the service and talking about how wonderful everything was. Thank you Judy, Katie and Justin for making my day perfect and so special!

Saint Clements was an amazing location for our ceremony and reception. I loved everything about my wedding! The castle was beautiful, from the gardens to the spacious ballroom. It was absolutely perfect. The staff was very helpful, abundant, well trained, and friendly. We were all treated as if we were royalty. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures around the grounds, and all of the delicious foods and drinks. I would definitely suggest Saint Clements Castle for anyone's wedding. We had absolutely zero complaints. :)

To say that Saint Clements Castle is beautiful is a complete understatement. This venue is the stuff dreams are made from! Pam is the most professional, personable, and organized individual to ever run a wedding site and will ensure that your day goes as smoothly as possible. I simply cannot say enough about this location or the staff, but it and they are complete magic. Simply helped us make it the best day of our lives!

The staff was amazing. The food was fantastic. The set-up at the venue was perfect. There were several places to hang out. If you wanted to dance or be in a quieter place as the evening progressed, there was somewhere for you to be. The coordinator was not in my way at all, but every time I needed something she was right there. I felt like a princess for the day. They were great to work with. Carol responded very quickly and was so accommodating. She was even great with my dad, whether he was complaining about something or just being silly, she always knew the right thing to say. When we were first deciding the menu and looking at extra additions to the cocktail hour, she actually said to me "I really don't think you need to add any extra food. There will be plenty and any extra really might be a waste". She basically said don't waste your money..you don't need to. I couldn't believe she was not trying to make the place more money! I really respected that. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Everything was incredible. They were so organized. The attention to detail was so amazing. Just another example, we had been told my several people to be careful with our gifts and cards. When we asked St Clements about this they said they have a security camera on the gift table all night. One less thing for me to worry about!!! I could not have asked for better people to work with and a more beautiful location. My guests are still raving about my wedding!

Although our ideal situation would to have been outside, the room we were in was gorgeous and Carol and Katie made the experience just as special.

The Castle gave me the wedding of my dreams. The staff was incredibly professional and efficient. They took care of our every need - some which we didn't even anticipate. From champagne and appetizers in the bridal suite to breaking down our decorations at the end of the evening and packing them up before we even knew it, Katie and her staff were amazing. And working with Pam for the year prior to the big day was a constant support - she answered all of our questions patiently and with ease. The food was incredible, the grounds were stunning and the Christmas decorations were just right. I will cherish the memories the Castle has given us for years and years to come.

We worked with Carol as our planner and she was so easy to work with, every phone call was returned promptly and every question was answered quickly. Amy was assigned as our wedding day coordintor and she was amazing. I did not have to worry about where to be or what to do because Amy had everything under control, it was perfect. Absolutely nothing went wrong because everyone at Saint Clements was on the same page, all my husband and I had to do was enjoy our wedding. Highly recommended to anyone looking for the perfect wedding.

Saint Clements completely exceeded our expectations. They couldn't have been any more professional, organized or flexible. The coordinators were calm, collected and responsive. The guests raved about the food and there was plenty of it for sure. Everything went so smoothly and they really put all my worries to rest. All of our unique needs were met and the special touches (like a two slices of cake in a box with a hand written note for the bride and groom to take home) were really appreciated. We had a winter wedding and the decorations they used were beautiful. The unique setting set the perfect mood for our winter wedding celebration and the guests felt warm, comfortable and spirited. An incredible place for sure.

I'm so glad I had my wedding at Saint Clements! For one thing, we still have not stopped receiving compliments on the beauty of the place. It is just SO beautiful; endless picture opportunities! From the moment we arrived, someone was taking care of us, bringing us champagne and food and making sure we had everything we needed. One thing I appreciated greatly was that when it was time for dinner, our Maitre' D immediately brought us our food so we could scarf it down and start visiting our guests. Though the day went by very fast, I know that nothing went wrong. Saint Clements is a beautiful and very professional place for your wedding!

Though the day went by very fast, I know that nothing went wrong. Saint Clements is a beautiful and very professional place for your wedding! Read less

Saint Clements was the first and only place we visited and are so happy that we chose them for our reception. Everyone was very pleasant to work with and the hall and grounds are beautiful. The food was excellent and the presentation was perfect! It is a little pricey but worth every penny. The staff worked very hard o make sure that not only us, but every guest as happy and taken care of. If we had to do it all over again, we would go back to Saint Clements.

A wedding at Saint Clements Castle is a dream come true! I recommend it 100%!!! The staff has been incredibly supportive and helpful throughout the year and on the day of my wedding, they made everything run so smoothly. The staff's priority is to make the bride and groom happy (especially the bride) and do everything possible to make it so. The grounds of Saint Clements are AMAZING!!! Utterly breath taking, and the price per person is right. About $100 per person. I had my dream wedding for sure and will forever remember it as the most amazing day and night of my life!

We had a beautiful May wedding at St. Clements Castle in Portland, and I'm positive that there's nothing I could say that would do this place justice. It is by far the most gorgeous location in CT, and the service and food is impeccable. We had our ceremony in the courtyard, and people kept saying it was like a fairy tale, and I know this is because my fairy godmother (the banquet manager) was behind the scenes making things perfect. They take such good care of everyone, we felt like guests at our own wedding. We didn't have to lift a finger. Our guests enjoyed exploring the grounds, and we are still getting compliments on our choice of venue. This place is 100% worth the money.. cut the flowers from your budget, this place is beautiful enough.

When my husband and I went to Saint Clements Castle for their bridal fair, we just knew this was the place for us to get married. From the time we spoke to Judy to the last second that we were at the site, we experienced nothing but pure professionalism. The food was fantastic, the wait staff was pleasant and accomodating, and our pictures just breath taking. Thank you again to Judy and the staff of Saint Clements Castle for making our wedding day truly a dream come true.

Saint Clements gave us the most incredible wedding I could ever have dreamt of. They exceeded ALL expectations! The grounds are incredible- just over the top stunning and breathtaking! Our coordinator, Judy, was so helpful and patient and kind the entire year. Mary, our banquet manager, was professional and on-the-ball organized! I did not have to worry about a thing the whole night, and I didn't!

I cannot rave enough about this place, about the beauty of it, about how it's fit for royalty, and at a great price. It was the wedding beyond my wildest dreams!

Tons more rave reviews can be found at weddingreports.com (that's where I found so many awesome reviews which made me go with them!)

Everything was taken care of up front. They do have some rules about what you can/can't have but they tell you that right in the beginning. We had the most amazing day, Mary took care of everything. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot for our special day.

The staff at Saint Clements Castle were very helpful during the entire planning process.
During the reception, they saw that one of my husbands younger cousins was not eating her pasta and asked if everything was ok. We didn't realize she was just diagnosed with a wheat allergy. They saw that she ordered chicken, which was breaded, and made her a piece of grilled chicken without asking. They also brought her other food to eat during the courses that had wheat. I was impressed.

Flawless! St. Clements Castle was gorgeous, and made the perfect venue. The staff was more than willing, at all times, to help. They were ahead of the game and not invasive while we were with family and friends. Planning was easy and they removed alot of the stress. Even after a hurricane knocked out their power up until the day of our wedding, they were more than prepared. Even at the end of the event, the staff gathered all our stuff just as we had left it, to ensure we left with all our things. Very organized and professional. The venue and the people made our day perfect. Couldn't thank them enough.

The waterford room was everything I wanted and more in a wedding reception. We got married out on the lawn over looking the CT river. The food was AMAZING! and Pam and Katie made sure everything was exactly how I wanted! It was sometimes hard to get a hold of Pam but she always came through when I needed her! Katie helped me the day of and did everything from getting us food/drinks and making sure my aunt was doing the centerpieces correctly! Everything was PERFECT and I could not have asked for a better reception hall. Please choose St Clements because it will be an amazing place to start the rest of your life with your best friend!

On the day of Tom helped everything run smoothly and made sure we ate (which was important!) and Ben took great care of us and our wedding party. The venue was everything we had in mind and all of our guests are still singing the praises months later :)

My wedding at Saint Clements Castle in the Waterford Room in April 2013 was amazing. From the beginning, the sales staff was very helpful and answered all of my questions very quickly. There were no problems at all throughout the whole planning process. The day of was absolutely perfect. Our ceremony was a bit shorter than expected so the bridal party and our guests arrived a little early, but that was no problem for the staff. Maybe it was the white dress, but I was treated like royalty the whole night. I feel awful that I cannot remember his name, but the manager assigned to the wedding was incredible. He was always around when I needed him. He made sure that the bridal party had some drinks and snacks during photos. Then during dinner he made sure that my groom and I ate dinner (going around to the tables takes forever!). At the end of the night all of our gifts were packed up and the staff loaded them into my family's car. Also, I had made a reservation through a taxi company for my groom and I to get back to our hotel. I misjudged the timing and by the time we left, the driver had been outside for 25 minutes - he wasn't happy but something tells me that the great staff at SCC made SURE that he did not leave without us. It was such a wonderful night and SCC did such a great job. The food was delicious and there were lots of it! Great service! Also, be sure to look at their seasonal specials if you are flexible about your wedding date. The grounds look beautiful year round. Love this place!

Saint Clements is not inexpensive, but it is worth every penny. It is a beautiful venue, even in December. Once you sign a contract, you are assigned a wedding planner. My planner, Carol Kelley, was wonderful - always available, always willing to answer questions. Through Saint Clements I got the name of excellent preferred vendors, which was extremely helpful.

Several days before the wedding there is a meeting where all details are reviewed and discussed and the responsibility is handed off from the planner to the wedding coordinator. The transition was handled professionally and seamlessly and the coordinator picked up where the planner left off.

The wedding day went without a hitch. The staff at Saint Clements worked with the various vendors and I never had to give it a second thought. Everything ended up being exactly as planned. In addition to being efficient and professional, the staff when out of their way to make the day special for the bride and groom - every step of the way. Their final act of graciousness was providing us with two pieces of our wedding cake along with forks and best wishes from the staff.

Our guests had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, the service was terrific and the rooms we used - the Art Gallery and Waterford Ballroom were gorgeous.

My only "complaint" or suggestion for improvement was the Saint Clements policy of not having an opportunity to do a "food tasting" prior to the event. I put my faith in the chef and kitchen staff and they came through, but I would have been happier had I known in advance how excellent the food was.

My daughter just had her wedding at St Clements and the guests raves are still coming. The service was the best. The staff finished the assembly on our centerpieces(we made ourselves and could not be transported completed) following exactly what was asked and they were perfect. I thought I would go early to put them together but I was told not to worry, everything would be taken care of and it was. We chose buffet with carving stations and the food was amazing. The food was set around the ballroom not crowded into one spot.The staff served our elderly guest table side freeing family from the task and making them feel special. Nick and Gena 's cake was so different(Winter Spice) that guests asked for seconds. The Art Gallery was so pretty for the ceremony with that fireplace.They offer a winter discount that really helps with cost and the grounds were still beautiful for some outdoor photos. This was the third wedding in our family and St. Clement's was by far the best in service, food and staff attitude. They made us feel that any request would be filled and with a smile.

The pricing there is very competitive to other places we looked at. They referred us to great venders including our minister, DJ, and videographer. We picked the Waterford room which is just a much better ballroom and we had our ceremony there. Lucky for us the weather was perfect. The staff there did everything we asked for and completely met and exceeded our expectations. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they ever been to. Saint Clements is the best!

This was the best money I spent! I was a little concerned with the cost of the venue, but after considering that not only was the dinner included, but also the cake, and 5 hours of open bar. This alone would have cost me a fortune! The staff was wonderful, personable, and flexible to my needs. They provided myself and my wedding party with a personal servant from the time I got to the castle until I walked out the door at the end of the night. They are amazing and I would highly recommend St. Clements to any bride who wants to be stress free on her wedding day!

I knew I would love this place just by looking at the website. After meeting with Pam, my coordinator, I was in love.

Amazing place! It was the first place we looked at the we fell in love with it AND booked it the same day!! We only had 6 months to plan the wedding and we were able to get Sunday. You can choose one of 2 locations within castle to have your ceremony and ceremony at. Waterford room is more expensive but definitely worth it.
Our coordinator was not very helpful. They changed time of our ceremony oh their own and told us we called and requested the change. They had to send the final contract copy back to them 3 times for them to correct mistakes. Wedding coordinators, (person who you book the wedding through and who collects all the information from you) are not present the day of the wedding, but instead you meet your wedding banquet manager a few days before the wedding) Our wedding banquet manager (person who is coordinating the wedding the day of the wedding) was great - very helpful and nice.
Overall, the place is absolutely amazing and at the end of the day what matter is how everything looked and not the issues you had during planning! Definitely recommend the place but be prepared for some work!

Saint Clements Castle is absolutely gorgeous. One thing that I cannot stress enough is to get out there and check these places out in person, even if they don't look so great online. Don't get me wrong, the pictures on Saint Clements website are nothing short of fantastic. But when we arrived to check the place out in person, we were even more amazed. We were given a tour of the entire facility, with complimentary glasses of wine, and learned all about the Castle's history. The moment we stepped inside, a strong feeling of calm and happiness surrounded us both. At that moment, we both knew that we needed to get married there. And on the day of our wedding, we did not need to worry about a thing. The staff took care of everything and ensured that we remained on our timeline. I do wish that we could have had more time. I believe our reception was one hour shorter than most, which was a bummer. I also think that the price of this venue is extremely steep. But I must admit that it was worth every penny!

I LOVED my wedding venue. There were just a few hiccups in which the coordinator assigned to me on the night of my wedding was nowhere to be found.

My husband and I walked back up the aisle together after our ceremony and had no idea where to go (would have been nice to have direction). The band accidentally played the wrong song during the announcements into the reception (would have been nice to tell the coordinator, so she could run over, but having the bride running into the reception yelling "Stop the music!" wouldn't have been so beautiful, so we just dealt with it). Our photographer had to show us where the bouquet to throw was located. I felt like my photographer was better informed on the night of the wedding than the wedding coordinator.

That being said, everything else was more than wonderful. Saint Clements is beautiful, the servers were top notch, and everything (other than the coordinator who was by my side -or not - the night of the wedding) was really great. People commented to us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to; and I can't imagine a compliment better than that.

Absolute, top of the line, perfect service is standard at Saint Clements. There were no variable prices, no haggling, just fair and amazing packages with no strings. We had an amazing wedding reception and ceremony - they ran the show without a hitch - I didn't have to worry about a thing. They took such amazing care of the wedding party. If we so much as dropped a napkin, they were right there to pick it up. They noticed what we were drinking right away - and every time we'd finish or lose a drink, they'd bring us another one without asking. I felt like we didn't miss a thing - while we took pictures on the gorgeous property, two servers followed us to ensure we had drinks and horduvours. Yes, you'll pay a little more, but you get more than your money's worth.

Saint Clements Castle is a beautiful place to have a wedding. Once we toured the grounds we knew we had to have our wedding there. The only issue we had is that SCC recently banned candles so we had to work with our florist to come up with different centerpieces (which tripled our floral budget unexpectedly). The only negative is that our paperwork came with wrong names, dates, dollar amounts, etc and when we asked for this information to be corrected and resent we got some attitude. There are lots of rules on what you can and can't do, but SCC is upfront about this when you sign the contract. The day of our wedding everything went smoothly. We worked with Mary, a banquet manager and she made the day stressless. She tended to every single detail and kept everyone and everything in perfect order. My husband and I were delighted with the attention to detail we received on our day. We just wished the upfront administrative processes were a little smoother.

I wish I could give St. Clement's 5 stars. I was so excited to have my wedding there and had only read and heard wonderful things about the place. But unfortunately we were disappointed on our wedding day for a few reasons. While St. Clement's is an absolutely beautiful place and will blow your guests away, their food does not rise to the occasion. Our friends who had been to weddings there had raved about the food, and we had always been hell-bent on spending a lot on our wedding food to make it perfect. My fiance's filet tasted like it had been grilled ahead of time and microwaved the day of the wedding. It had no flavor AT ALL and tasted like sawdust. My sea bass was cold...not even a little warm. Keep in mind, these are two of their most expensive meals. We spent a lot of money on this food, and many of our guests told us their meals were unacceptable as well. Not to mention the fact that we had went out of our way to bring in Yuengling beer because it's not sold in CT. Our wedding planner knew all about it and had it in her possession two days before the wedding. Yet when cocktail hour was over and we asked for a Yuengling, the bartenders response was "Oh, that's your beer in the basement? No one told us what wedding it was for." My mom also spent extra on 36 bottles of chardonnay that the staff told us at 8pm was sold out. How do 36 bottles of Chardonnay sell out that fast? They don't. I can say that our planner the day of was very helpful and kept me calm and got me whatever I needed. I can also say that our guests were completely wowed by our location. But we were left embarrassed by food that was inadequate and mistakes that could have been avoided. The castle has gone out of its way to investigate our wedding and has apologized over and over again for the mistakes. They've also offered us free tickets to one of their premier events later in the year. But nothing will change what happened on our wedding day.
