I don't even know where to start! Everyone at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake (and CT Wedding Group) seriously couldn't be anymore helpful! When my fiancé (at the time) and I went to look at the Pavilion, they emailed me all of their information ahead of time so we knew exactly what we were in for. When we met with them, they couldn't have been any nicer - they had everything laid out for us to know exactly what we were getting when/if we booked with them.
They were so organized, they emailed us often with different vendors to help us pick from, new additions to menu/decor items, and helped us stay on task with what we needed to get done all the way up to the wedding day!
Our lovely coordinator for the day was Melinda, the first time I met her I knew we were in excellent hands. She has such a bubbly outgoing personality. When we dropped off our decor she told us she'd handle everything from there. She added in some extra decor items that we talked about first to really help complete the look my husband and I wanted.
She even last minute helped us avoid a last minute disaster - we realized our lovely cupcake baker didn't have a cupcake tier big enough for us...so, Melinda took charge instantly and showed me some different ideas she could throw together for us; it ended up being absolutely stunning!
We also worked a bit with Michelle who was absolutely amazing and helpful as well!
The Pavilion on Crystal lake staff are amazing - they made sure the bridal party ( bride & groom too!) always had food and drink in hand when we took pictures and throughout the entire reception.
I can't even talk enough about how amazing the food is! You can not pick a wrong meal choice with them; so many amazing delicious options!
My husband and I stay can't stop talking about how wonderful they are there & how helpful they were to make our wedding day so memorable and wonderful! A definite hidden gem in Middletown if you want that rustic/elegant look!

BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES.

No really- I know everyone says it, but the staff at CT Wedding group are true professionals who are dedicated to helping you make your special day the very best it can be. Mary-Beth, Johnathan and all of the support we had from other staff members was incredible. All communication was answered quickly and professionally and contracts and services were outlined clearly. Leading up to the day, any help I needed with details, CT Wedding group was there.

The day of was so special. We had a beautiful setting and a great day, but it was a little chilly. I was totally committed to an outside ceremony, until... 10 minutes before we were set to start, I was told it was too cold for my grandmother and that she wouldn't be able to be outside. Couldn't have the grandma not be there! So I decided- very last minute, to move the ceremony inside. All the staff quickly ushered decorations and guests inside and it was just as beautiful- and grandma was there! Mary-Beth went above and beyond- she's just wonderful!!! The food and drinks were SO Yummy. My husband and I receive compliments daily on the evening- from the food, to the atmosphere, to the dancing. One of my favorites is "Can we just do your wedding again?" I say "why not?" Maybe an anniversary party??? Too soon? I can't say enough about CT Wedding Group and The Pavilion. Thank you for the best day ever.

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.

My husband, my guests, and I had so much fun at our wedding at The Pavilion at Crystal Lake in Middletown on 7/26/14! My coordinator was Laura Shipman, who was wonderful! She took care of everything! I didn’t worry about a single thing. In fact, I just danced the night away with my husband and guests. She was so friendly, too! The food was amazing, which my guests have been telling me over and over. The ambiance was absolutely perfect. The staff was professional and heeded to everyone’s needs. The pictures we took outside by the water came out gorgeous! The grounds are so beautiful there and make the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. I can’t say enough about how amazing our wedding was at The Pavilion. If you are looking for your day to go flawlessly, then book with the CT Wedding Group at The Pavilion at Crystal Lake! I was hoping for a perfect wedding day, and we got it!

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
