From our first meeting with Mary-Beth we knew this was the perfect venue for us. I worked with Mary-Beth throughout the year of planning and she was always so professional and responded so promptly (and for a bride that is priceless) the day of our wedding we had Melinda as our coordinator and she understood our vision quickly and pulled everything together. Walking into our venue I was speechless on all the small details they added that made everything look amazing. Thank you for making our day run so smoothly. Our guest couldn’t stop talking about how good the food and service was. We appreciate everyone who was involved in our special day and for making it a night we will never forget. I can not wait to recommend you to future brides. with love Mr. and Mrs. Mark Ricardo

We worked with Melinda as our wedding coordinator and she was AMAZING! My husband and I were both so incredibly happy with the everyone we worked with at CT Wedding Group. Everyone made the whole process so easy and there was not one issue that came up. We were both really laid back about the whole wedding, and everyone we worked with made it possible for us to have low stress! We only met Melinda the week before when we dropped off all of the decorations. I showed her everything, but there were still a few items I wasn't sure where to put, or what to do with and Melinda just took care of it. She decorated the room better than I could have ever imagined! We had an Alice in Wonderland theme, and she just ran with it! Melinda even added in items that she had on hand to make it looks absolutely beautiful! A few days prior to the wedding I realized we moved some people around on the seating chart, but wasn't sure if I made the changes on the escort cards. I wasn't able to get there to check as the venue was over an hour away and there was a wedding the day before. Melinda kept in touch and went through all of the cards for me to make sure everything was perfect! This above and beyond service is exactly what we were hoping for. I highly recommend Melinda and the rest of the team to anyone looking for an exceptional wedding!

Melinda out wedding cordinator was awesome. The day could not have gone by more smoothly. It was just everything we dreamed it could be. She coordinated so well with out Dj and photographer. The planning leading up to the wedding so so simple and not stressful at all with how they have it all laid out of us. It was a wonderful experience. The ambiance of this place was perfect also. The trees wee just changing colors so there were reds and oranges reflecting off the calm lake. It's a perfect place to have a fall rustic feeling wedding. Having the options of different decorations made the room feel so warm and homey. It was everything we could have asked for. All of our family and friends raved about the amazing food all day long. So many guests told us they never had such amazing food at a wedding and we agree.

We could not be happier with everyone at The Pavilion on Crystal Lake. The venue, beautiful. The food, amazing. The staff: incredible; professional; accommodating; and helpful.

They made us feel special. They treated us like our Wedding was the most important day, to them, ever. Every detail was taken care of for us. People say you never get to eat at your Wedding and/or see all your guest. They made sure we ate and got to see our guests. They were there before we knew we needed them and away when we didn't so we could actually enjoy ourselves.

We cannot thank them enough or recommended them enough. Do yourself a favor and book your Wedding with The CT Wedding Group...you'll be very very happy you did.

I cannot say enough positive things about the Pavilion on Crystal Lake and the staff at CT Wedding Group. Every little detail was attended to and we could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. The setting was beautiful, our wedding planner (Melinda) ensured that everything ran smoothly, and the food and drinks were amazing! Everyone told us that our food was hands down the best wedding food they have ever had. And thanks to the wonderful staff, I was actually able to eat on my wedding day, which I have heard is unheard of!

We had our wedding at The Pavilion on Crystal Lake this past Saturday and we could not be more thrilled. First off, as a gay couple, Mary-Beth and the team at CT Wedding Group made us feel welcome and celebrated right along with us. Anytime we called during the planning process someone (Mary-Beth, Irene, Laura, ect.) was eager to help us and alleviate any stress we might be feeling. Do not be apprehensive about the tasting not occurring before you book; we promise Chef Steve Lisitano's creations will leave you and your fiance and then your guests raving about the wonderful food.

With that said, The Pavilion was the perfect backdrop for our wedding. The outdoor ceremony space is gorgeously set against the wooded shoreline of Crystal Lake. Our photographer had an absolute blast experimenting with the different scenery: beach, trees, lawn, topiary. Mary-Beth and her staff the day of our wedding were working efficiently and always with a smile during the set-up. They made sure we were comfortable with every little thing that could possibly distract us from our upcoming vows.
When the cocktail hour began our guest were already coming up to us excitedly describing how great every morsel of food tasted. Within 30 minutes of hors d'oeuvres, many guests had already declared that this was the best food they had every had at a wedding or any other formal banquet. Our parents and other guests were so impressed with the service that the entire staff provided. It wasn't just the speed and accuracy with which they served us, but the fact that they were warm and smiling the entire night.
The physical space of The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was perfect with intimate seating and a large central dance floor. Trust us, this dance floor is plentiful as tested by our crowd who never left it all night long.
Simply put, we would not have changed a thing about our choice in venue/catering. The team at Connecticut Wedding Group is professional, quality, and caring. Johnny&Adam

My wedding was yesterday, June 7, 2014. I cannot say enough about The Pavilion on Crystal Lake. We were so happy with EVERYTHING! The service is absolutely spectacular and the food is great. We had many people comment that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I attribute this to the great staff who was so welcoming and kind to the guests. Guests really enjoyed the table wine service. My husband and I were treated like a King and Queen and I never had to worry about a thing. We highly recommend this venue.

Michelle was our wedding coordinator, and was absolutely amazing. From planning to the food tasting, rehearsal, and the wedding she made us feel like family.
Everyone we encountered from CT wedding group were all professional, helpful and treated us like we were all that mattered. We also had Melinda who was with Michelle on our wedding day, she was also amazing. The two of them really went above and beyond for us, and we are so thankful. The food is some of the best you will ever eat! There is a reason why the chef has won awards for best chef in CT, everything is fresh and local and it's all unique, not your normal "wedding food". All of my guests loved the venue the food and our signature drink! The venue itself is beautiful, it's set on crystal lake the windows line the wall overlooking the water as well as a spacious deck/patio area. We got married on site away nestled into the woods under a gazebo overlooking the lake. They also have a little beach area which is great for photos. We paid for a drapes and lighting package which looked beautiful, it changed the feel of the room to a more romantic rustic sheik. Again there is not a thing I can say bad about this venue, our wedding was perfect and the staff was top notch! (Thank you for giving us the best wedding!)

I don't even know where to start with this review. I had the most amazing group of vendors I could have asked for, but The Pavilion on Crystal Lake and everyone at CT Wedding Group really outdid themselves. I want to especially thank Mary-Beth. I went into my final meeting with every small detail planned out, ready to walk Mary-Beth through every step to make sure everything would turn out okay. As soon as I began talking to her, I felt assured that everything would be perfect and I had absolutely no reason to worry. She was right. I got ready the next day and completely forgot about everything except enjoying my pre-wedding pampering and the company of my family and close friends. When I got to the pavilion, everything was perfect. Nothing was out of place and there were even some additional decorations that made everything come together nicely. Mary-Beth made me feel relaxed the entire day and directed everyone seamlessly. I didn't have a worry in the world, not even the impending rain put a damper on my day. Everything from the decorations, to the food and drinks was more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for everything CT Wedding Group and Mary-Beth did to make my wedding day so special. It will definitely be a day that I will never forget. Especially because all of our guests keep ranting about it, specifically the food! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so much!

One of the smartest decisions we made for our wedding day was booking with the Pavilion at Crystal Lake.

People are still talking about the food at the wedding, especially the passed hors d’oeuvres and the dessert trays. There was so much food, everyone was stuffed for days!

Mary Beth was exceptional. She was on top of everything and made sure the day went off without a hitch. She was extremely accommodating to all the little touches we wanted to do to reflect our vision.

The space is beautiful (inside and outside) and had a wonderful layout. The food and drinks were fantastic. I honestly couldn’t be happier.
