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.

Our wedding was so awesome thanks to our dedicated support system at The Connecticut Wedding Group, particularly Traci, Laura and Irene. Our day-of coordinator Laura made certain that we were taken care of without having to make any decisions (love you for that Laura)! The servers were on their game, food was amazing, they boxed up all of our stuff after the conclusion of the reception without me even noticing. They were so great about getting stuff done stealthily so they didn't distract from the wedding itself. I got multiple compliments that our wedding was the best they've ever been to!

Completely amazing! Amazing venue, amazing food/drink and especially amazing staff - especially Mary-Beth. It was like having a very expensive wedding planner on hand - from the beginning to the end. She answered every question - without delay - and was just so informative throughout the whole process. She even helped to make our day that much more special, by allowing the ceremony to be outside (even though it was awfully cold !!! totally worth it). The details were not lost on her, and she took such good care to be sure they were on display - just PERFECT! We were hoping for the best day ever, and because of Mary-Beth and her staff - we got just that, and so much more! The Pavilion is a beautiful place to get married - from the beach photo opps, to the ceremony gazebo, to the inside - it's charming, and rustic, and just magical. Thank you to the Pavilion for all you did for us! We wish we could do it all again, and wouldn't change ANYTHING (not even being outside :)).

The Connecticut Wedding Group is absolutely FANTASTIC. As John and I embarked on our search throughout the northeast for a venue that would suit our needs and meet our budget, we struggled. Many of the venues were outrageous and offered everything as separate add-ons, costs, etc. It became very special to hand select things for our day.

The Connecticut Wedding Group had everything we wanted and more under one roof...and a beautiful roof may I add. The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was stunning providing lovely natural views and a rustic cabin on the lake interior feel. John and I were so pleased.

Even more amazing the the venue and offerings of the Pavilion was the organization and tremendous respect from the organizing staff. Mary-Beth McDowell, our wedding planner was a true gem. The day went in perfect flow because of her oversight. We could not have asked for a better individual to share our special day with...both the fun and the logistics.

And as for the MANY of my quest reviews...the food is AMAZING, the location was stunning...we even braved the 46 degree weather to enjoy the gazebo AND the coordination was flawless.

CHEERS to the Connecticut Wedding Group. They deserve much recognition.

The CT Wedding Group was so professional and wonderful to work with - they were very proactive as the ceremony was originally going to be held outside - but the weather didn't look too promising - they called early and had plan b in motion before we even had to stress about it. They really did take the worry out of the day for both my daughter and myself.

The food was out of this world and so good - all the guests were so happy with there selections and how good everything was - from the presentation right on down to the taste and temperature of the food.. The hot foods were hot - the cold foods cold. The wait staff were professional and friendly and made folks feel comfortable. They were there with food, beverage, whatever before being asked.

The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was the perfect venue for our wedding. The rustic atmosphere and lake views almost immediately sold us when we first arrived to look at it. Beyond that, every person we worked with at the Pavilion was obviously dedicated to making our day go as perfectly as possible. When we met with Michelle we knew we were in good hands and that we could both be at ease with all the details of the evening. We cannot thank the entire staff enough for making our wedding wonderful, from the bartenders to the servers, everyone worked hard to make the night one we will never forget!

We could not be happier with our experience at the Pavilion at Crystal Lake! The entire staff was friendly, professional, and accommodating. Our wedding planner, Mary Beth, was always there to answer my questions and made sure we had everything we wanted and needed on our wedding day. The entire staff made sure everything went smoothly and flawlessly. People are still talking about the food! Everything was absolutely delicious! The grounds were beautifully landscaped and the inside of the Pavilion was perfect. The view was amazing too! I am hoping one of our friends can get married there just so we can go back and enjoy the space and food all over again! I absolutely recommend this venue to everyone!

The Pavilion on Crystal Lake and the CT Wedding Group are masters of the wedding craft!

I had numerous questions before the wedding, all of which were responded to promptly, thoroughly and with patience. The day of the wedding, Michelle Dunkin, our onsite CT Wedding Group wedding coordinator, was so attentive, thoughtful, sunny, tireless and masterful that I will always remember her with gratitude. She was at the Pavilion hours before the ceremony and reception to oversee set-up and provide support for us as we did our “First Look” photos. During the wedding, she not only coordinated the service and staff, she also brought my husband and I comfort in knowing that everything was going well in her excellent care. Michelle stayed well after the wedding to guarantee that everything we were talking home (centerpieces, table number holders, etc.) was carefully wrapped up for transport home.

Truly, all the Pavilion staff onsite for my wedding went above and beyond the call of duty for me, my husband and our guests. Before the wedding began, staff provided a lovely spread for us and our wedding party, setting the right mood of festivity with their bright, cheerful energy. Melinda and the team set up the photos of those who could not be with us, our guestbook and the rest of the wedding "flair" with artfulness and care. Staff provided continually friendly and courteous service to all our guests and served such delicious farm-to-table food that our guests are still talking about it. Our "signature" bar drink was a HUGE hit, too. Beyond the outstanding drinks, Steve the bartender and the bar staff helped me keep my cool when things got sticky with my disappointing DJ (I should have gone with a CT Wedding Group recommended DJ --- fie on me on that one!). On every front, everywhere I turned, was a friendly face ready to provide whatever was needed to make sure the wedding was a success.

The CT wedding group has master the art of catering and wedding services. Our wedding was beyond what we imagined; the food was phenomenal (they have seasonal manues with fresh ingredients from local farmers Yum), the service was amazing and attentive and the wedding coordinators (We worked with Michelle) are just delightful. I heard so many stories of how stressful wedding planning can be, but our experience was the total opposite, it was a day that we would never forget. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our planning experience And the day of our wedding so memorable.
You guys are the best of the best!!!

We just had our wedding at the pavilion this past weekend and we could not have asked for a more personable and professional staff. They were amazing since day one when we went to tour the venue, and eased all of our concerns and questions. This venue is more than worth the money you pay, the staff was so attentive towards all of our guests, and I can't say enough about the food. The food was delicious and never ending. They took care of us and our wedding party, and always called myself and the groom by name which I thought was so friendly and personable. Overall, this venue is perfect (especially for a rustic wedding) and the staff is amazing.

The venue, quality of food and staff was amazing at the Pavilion! Michelle our wedding coordinator at the Pavilion was extremely helpful both before and the day of. I felt comfortable leaving everything in her capable hands. We have received so many compliments on the food and quality of the service from our guests. The package was so reasonable for everything that was included. One of the things that attracted us the most to the Pavilion besides its beautiful scenery outside was the fact that there is only one wedding held per day and that you could choose the time slot that you wanted (6 hours!). They were very flexible in that way. The venue was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have asked for more!

This venue was amazing. I worked with Jonathan, who did everything he could to make my day amazing! I came into this having no idea what I was doing, since I've never been to a wedding before, and Jonathan made me feel totally comfortable and stress-free. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and the price is much better than expected- the cost is extremely low for what you get! We got married in front of the beautiful gazebo. The ceremony area is gorgeous. The building for the reception is also beautiful and Pavilion Catering makes it look amazing for your wedding! The food was very good (I wish I could have had more, but I was running around like crazy saying hi to everyone!). I never stopped receiving compliments about the venue and the food.

The Pavilion on Crystal Lake is the perfect setting for a wedding. Our ceremony was so beautiful and everything went so smoothly. The coordinator from the Connecticut Wedding Group that we worked with Laura, was so organized and kept the flow of the event going smoothly and made sure we had nothing to worry about all day and could just enjoy the event. The food was exceptional!! All of our guests were raving about cocktail hour and their meals. The venue is a little pricey but the overall experience was well worth it. We had the perfect laid back and beautiful wedding we had always dreamed of. I can't thank the staff at the Connecticut Wedding Group and Pavilion at Crystal Lake enough!!
