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.

We don't know where to begin in thanking Woodwinds. Our wedding was absolutely perfect! Throughout our entire engagement, JoAnna was so helpful and responsive to questions every single time we had one. Antonella was so kind and such a fantastic help. Scott was simply incredible. The day of our wedding he was there to help us through every step and knew what was needed before we even did. The food was so delicious. All of our guests raved about it. We do not have a single bad thing to say about Woodwinds. They went above and beyond to make our special day so perfect and unforgettable. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

We could not be happier with our choice of venue. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and how much they loved everything. Scott is AMAZING, I seriously can not say enough about him and his staff, if anything went wrong I certainly don't know about it. They are professional, courteous and so incredibly on top of their game.

My husband and I looked at several venues and I am so glad that we chose The Woodwinds, we will recommend it to everyone we know.

We truly had the wedding of our dreams thanks to the amazing staff at WoodWinds. Every single person with whom we interacted from our very first email contact to picking up our items the day after the wedding was professional, kind, and seriously on top of their game.

Throughout the entire planning process, the team was there for us to answer questions, offer advice, and help with coordinating with other vendors. We truly did not have to worry about a thing, which was such a relief over the year of planning. On the day of the wedding, we truly had a personalized experience that fit us and our families, went perfectly smoothly, and was so much fun for us and for our guests. Everywhere we turned, staff members were going above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect, special, and unique to us. As every review seems to mention, the food is spectacular and in abundance, and Scott and Antonella are there to guide you throughout the entire event and make sure you are having the time of your life. Scott even drove me up to the ceremony in his vintage Doval car to give me an entrance that our guests are still raving about.

We felt so taken care of and loved the day of our wedding – the WoodWinds team gave us the gift of being able to enjoy our day the whole way through, which we truly could not put a price on. (Although for all the venues we visited before signing our contract, WoodWinds really is where you get the most bang for your buck.) It was truly a pleasure having our wedding at WoodWinds and an honor to share our special day with the team there. We could not have chosen a better venue and would do it over again in a heartbeat!
