Thank you for this new post on theknot.com!

We couldn't have asked for a better venue! We knew we had found the one as soon as we met Joanna. She made sure we would have the perfect wedding. Then when Scott took over, we knew we were still in good hands. Scott was able to set up a rehearsal, which was difficult because we couldn't coordinate everyone. And on wedding day, Scott and his wife Antonella were on top of everything. My dad uses a walker for long distances and was worried how he'd get around. Scott made sure he had my dad's walker available for after my dad walked some short distances (walking me down the aisle). My dad never had to worry. He also had my lipstick and a mirror available for touch ups so I'd still look good in pictures. The food was amazing! The appetizers at cocktail hour were a hit! The guests said they just kept coming, they were never without! And the buffet... People couldn't get enough! The sauce on the pasta was so delicious, and being half Italian, the sauce was important to me! The waitstaff (and those that helped with the ceremony) and bartenders were so nice and made sure everyone was happy all day. Couldn't have been a better wedding!! Thank you again!

Every positive thing you read about Woodwinds is absolutely the truth. My husband and I were married there on July 16th and it was perfect. Our guests had a blast, the food was delicious, drinks were plentiful and Scott and Antonella made sure everything ran smoothly. They are amazing. I wish I could do it again! LOL. Thanks for making my wedding dream a reality Woodwinds!

We had our wedding at Woodwinds on July 16, 2016 and it was perfect! The venue is absolutely beautiful and the staff was very attentive and professional. The wedding planning process was made so easy because their staff are super knowledgeable and you can tell they care! From the initial tour to the rehearsal to the wedding day everything was easy and smooth. We had our ceremony on the private patio off the garden room. It was an amazing setting with the waterfall in the background. Everything went off without a hitch. Scott and his team took care of everything. All we had to do was show up and have an amazing time! The food was so delicious and they even sent us home with left over entrees and desserts from the Venetian table! Scott's vintage Rolls Royce was an unexpected surprise! We have so many beautiful pictures with the car and so do our guests who loved posing with it! Scott even allowed our photographer to get on the roof for amazing pictures of our ceremony! Woodwinds was worth every penny we spent. You will not be disappointed if you book your wedding there!

We had a perfect wedding day. All the staff we worked with prior to and on the day of the wedding were friendly, helpful and accommodating. We had a brunch buffet and all the guests raved about the food. The grounds were beautiful and I was pleasantly surprised that the outside patio for the ceremony had some extra decorations I wasn't aware would be there.

My fiance and I had our engagement party at Woodwinds this past July 2015! We could not have been happier with their service, friendliness, and professionalism from start to finish! We had 150 guests at our event and everyone had an amazing time and great things to say about the venue! Also, a very important factor to us was the food, and it all tasted AMAZING! During cocktail hour the hot passed hors d'oeuvres were delicious and were CONSTANTLY being replenished (so important!). We had an amazing time and I'm so happy we chose Woodwinds for our special day!

Don't even bother looking elsewhere. You will find many venues to be beautiful and their staff very friendly. But the Woodwinds' cohesiveness of their staff, reliability, and attention to detail put them miles above others. If you go with the Woodwinds, you will not have to worry during your wedding day and will be able to actually enjoy the company of all of your cherished guests. Especially if you're doing an Indian wedding, they know what to do and how to run it!

I cannot imagine choosing another venue for our wedding. Woodwinds was by far the best option for food, cost, space and flexibility out of all of the venues we looked at in Connecticut. They have several locations for outdoor ceremonies and, when it rained the morning of the wedding, Scott and his team were able to immediately set up for the indoor ceremony in front of the fireplace of our reception room. In spite of the last minute change, everyone agreed it was beautiful (and far more suitable than a wet outdoor ceremony!).

Scott was incredible about making sure each part of the ceremony ran smoothly, and Antonella was always ready when I needed something: she was there to bring us our food, get a stain off of my dress, take my bouquet for the first dance, and basically handle any need that arose. Food was one of my biggest concerns for the wedding, but Woodwinds did not disappoint. We knew from our complimentary dinner at Cafe Allegre that we were in for a treat, which was proven true when we received rave reviews on the food from our guests. If you want one of the more affordable venues in the state without sacrificing quality, I highly recommend Woodwinds.

As a vendor (It's All About You DJ Services), we recently had two opportunities to do business with Woodwinds providing both DJ & Photo Booth services. As a business owner of our DJ business, we have the opportunity to work many different venues all over the State of CT and by far, hands down, this is the very best venue we have ever worked at. The venue is so beautiful!! The food is incredible!! Every single staff member that we have interaction with was so friendly and right on point with everything!!!! We must say this is largely due to Scott who runs the 'show'. With our own company, attention to detail and first class customer service is our goal for each and every event that we do. Scott has the same goal!! We have never met a person like Scott. He is friendly, professional and clearly on top of his game. We have more events booked at Woodwinds for the upcoming year and we are so excited to go back to this venue again, and again!!! I have and will continue to recommend this venue to everyone we can. Kudos to Scott, the Chef and all the staff at Woodwinds who have clearly made Woodwinds what it is; FIRST CLASS BANQUENT FACILITY!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you Scott -- Sincerely Pam & Joe, It's All About You DJ Services, LLC. www.itsallaboutyoudj.com

Our night was magical thanks to all the hard work the staff at The Woodwinds put into making our night perfect! The food was amazing and one of the main reasons we picked this venue. The grounds are also gorgeous and perfect for a backdrop for all our wedding photos. I don't know what I would have done without Scott that night making sure everything was executed accordingly and that my husband and I actually had a chance to sit back and enjoy the party we had planned. We will definitely be using the Woodwinds for more events.
