This venue was literally amazing. I was looking for an outside, casual but romantic feel and that is exactly what I got plus more.Sent on 07/16/2019
1) Wedding Planning: I was planning my wedding from Florida which added its own set of logistical challenges. This venue was great because they provide almost everything; the food, set-up, event planners, etc. If you do not want to spend time booking your own caterers, picking out silverware, etc, this place is great because it saves you a lot of time. However if you want to be more hands on, they are fine with that too. The planning team answers all emails quickly and are available by the phone as well. They provide reminders of things you need to do each month and help keep everything organized. On the wedding day, you also have an Event Coordinator who helps keep everything running smoothly. This is so great because they know the ins-and outs of everything--as opposed to hiring someone who is not familiar with the venue to come in and coordinate the day. Allie was so calm, organized and kind and I felt I could completely trust her and relax!
2) Venue: The ceremony took place in an open field with a stunning backdrop of CT. If you visit and just look at the tent, it may not seem like the most beautiful place ever. However, you need to use your imagination with how it looks filled up with decoration. It again has a gorgeous backdrop, and a lawn area for cocktail hour. We decorated the tent ceiling with one of the options they provided and added flowers and everyone said it looked magical, enchanting, gorgeous, etc.
3)Food: So I honestly didn't even think about the food, but everyone was raving about it. To sum it up someone said "I did not expect much from the food, since usually at wedding it's made in bulk and is mediocre. But this food was amazing, the best i've had at a wedding, I would pay for this at a restaurant." Also since my sister also had a wedding at their sister venue, they gifted me a pretzel bar at the end of the night which was amazing!
4) Price: It was an extremely reasonable per person price for the venue--especially taking into consideration you get an entire wedding planning team from the day you book with them
I highly recommend!

I have no idea where to start because everything about CT wedding group and the venue was outstanding! Let me start with the team because without them We wouldn’t have had the most beautiful and me elrbe day of our lives. Marybeth was always there to listen, answer every question, and then some. Wedding planning can be stressful, and overwhelming but I didn’t feel any stress at all, it was all so enjoyable and fun. The team saw my vision and understood me, creating the most breathtaking day, filled with such beauty and detail. I must’ve emailed the team daily, sometimes more than once a day, and they got back to me right away and we’re kknd, explaining everything, making me feel calm and I completely trusted them. Jenna was my daybof coordinator and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her. I didn’t have to think about anything, she kept me calm, and ran a well oiled machine that day! Jenna was there each step, every minute keeping everything in track, making sure we ate, danced, everyone was having fun. She helped my vision come to life with, taking all my leaves to crate a magical reception and ceremony.Sent on 08/21/2018

I don't have enough great things to say about our wedding on August 4th at Lyman. Mary Beth was an amazing wedding director to work with and truly helped us to stay organized and on target throughout the wedding planning process. The day of, they helped us have the perfect day! Allie was the day of coordinator-- she was on top of everything and brought my vision to life for all of my decor! She made sure we had drinks in our hands and food ready for us throughout the night when we were busy meeting with guests. She made sure we got our pictures taken and made it to part of cocktail hour. Our guests were impressed by the delicious food and ambiance, and the views of the course were beautiful. Overall, we are so thankful for everyone at CT Wedding Group and would recommend Lyman to anyone looking for a gorgeous outdoor tent wedding!Sent on 09/13/2018
