Traveling from out of state, we didn’t really have any ideas of venues in Connecticut that we wanted to see. We found the CT Wedding Group through browsing online and made an appointment to visit the Pavilion on Crystal Lake. Once we saw the Pavilion in person, we were hooked. The building had a natural, rustic feel that was perfect for us. The outdoor ceremony site in front of the gazebo amongst the trees was serene and the ideal setting for us to exchange vows. On our wedding, the events of the day flowed flawlessly from the hot beverage cart stationed for guests to pass by to the beautiful, outdoor ceremony site in its autumnal glory to the cocktail hour and reception indoors. The lighting package we chose with the mason jars suspended from the ceiling was absolutely breathtaking and created an ambience of warmth, comfort, and celebration.
What sets the CWG apart from all the other wedding venues in CT, however, is their unparalleled customer service. Every, single person we spoke to and met with at the CWG was so professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. Mary-Beth sent out such detailed, informative emails throughout the wedding planning process which helped keep me organized, and she always responded to my questions and concerns in a timely, kind manner. Ashley was also very thorough, patient, and helpful, especially when I was booking outside vendors who needed to be approved. And hats off to Steve and Mike- Our wedding guests cannot stop talking about how great the food was! A very special thank you goes to Samantha Nickerson, wedding planner extraordinaire. She couldn’t have been more responsive and thoughtful at our final details appointment, in the days leading up to the wedding, and on the day of the wedding.

The CT wedding group was incredible!! Although they do multiple weddings a weekend, I feel like they were always excited and interested in my own wedding. They were responsive and attentive to my needs and answered any question I had in a timely manner. The day of, I had a wedding coordinator, Allie Feitelson, that was just as invested in the wedding details as I was; it was priceless to be able to just enjoy my own wedding! If I could do it all over again, there wouldn't be a second thought, I would choose the CT wedding group again in a heartbeat!!

My husband and I were just married on 9/30/16 at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake and we cannot stop raving about it! The grounds are so beautiful and, even on a cold and rainy day, we were able to utilize so much of it! Due to this, we had to have our ceremony inside and it was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. They were so calm about the weather which was soothing to us. The staff is incredible. From our first meetings with Mary-Beth, to talking to Sam on many occasions and of course our wedding coordinator Allie, we cannot speak any more highly of them! Allie was so accommodating to us and we will be forever grateful! She was able to bring all of our vision to life in such a creative way! We have never felt so pampered. The food? Amazing. We are still hearing from our guests how delicious it all was! They really pull out all the stops! We would do it again and again if we could! I hope we get to go to another wedding there so we can keep experiencing it!! If you are looking for a place to have your rustic, elegant and romantic wedding, look no further- this is your place!

This venue has everything you want - an outside, beautiful secluded ceremony space lined with trees just steps away from your reception, a wonderful view of the lake (perfect for pictures!!) and a rustic & chic reception space! The reception space was perfectly spaced out so everything fit and didn't feel or look cramped - the dance floor was big enough, the tables weren't on top of one another, and the garden lights really made the whole space come together! There is also an outside covered patio for people to hang at if they want a dancing break! This venue is amazing & the food, OMG, THE FOOD - I am a foodie and so are my friends and everyone was floored by how innovative, delicious and seasonal the food was - seriously everything was perfect at the Pavilion especially the staff!! Get married at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake -- you will be so happy you did!

My daughter had her reception at the pavilion on August 21, 2016. I must say from the very first meeting we had in December it was absolutely the best experience. Every single staff member that we dealt with was amazing. Everyone was very knowledgeable and very accommodating making us feel like our day was the most important day to them. Our on site coordinator was Allie and I cannot even begin to express how great she was. The reception was perfect,everything and everyone was on point. We could not have asked for more. The food was delicious, the presentation was beautiful, and again the staff was wonderful! One of the things that I really appreciated about Allie was how she made sure everything ran smoothly, made sure I didn't have to worry about anything, and made sure my daughter had everything that she wanted and more, write down to the very end. Allie paid attention to so much detail making sure it was all just wonderful. Many of our guests continue to speak about what a wonderful time they had and how this had to be one of the best weddings they have been to in a very long time. I cannot thank the Connecticut wedding group enough.

We had the absolute best experience working with the CT Wedding Group for our wedding at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake on 8/20/16! From our initial meeting to our final meeting Mary-Beth and the whole staff were informative and available to answer any questions that we had. They were accommodating to our larger than normal drop off of decor/unique centerpieces and made us feel comfortable ensuring that they would handle the whole set-up. The room was exactly what we envisioned (and more) and our guests continue to tell us how amazing the food was! Our day of coordinator, Lindsay, made sure everything went smoothly and that my husband and I had everything we needed throughout the whole reception. By the end of the night we had barely noticed that Lindsay and the staff had already packed up our things and put them in our car. We can't say enough great things about the CT Wedding Group staff and Pavilion on Crystal Lake venue.
