Wonderful Experienxe & Absolutely Beautiful Location
To the reader. Our sweet daughter married the man of her dreams September of 2018.
I can’t say enough about the absolutely wonderful experience we had working with the skilled team at The Nathan Hale Homestead in Coventry, CT. Not only was the experience wonderful but the grounds lovely making the photographs of the event lasting, lovely memories and the day so very special.
We started cocktail hour on the back patio with a wonderful clear tent. wine barrel high top tables and chairs and lovely dimmed chandelier lighting rented from Taylor Rental in Manxhester CT.
The Food was catered by The Brownstone five star caterer our guests are still raving about the food and stunning presentation and fully stocked bar. The professionalism of the catering staff, outstanding chef, selection and presentation of the finest foods was well behind what I could have ever imagined. Did I mention the after party and live DJ Mark the Shark who rocked the stunningly decorated barn adorned with crystal chandeliers. sweeping large curtains from the large barn doors, 100s of twinkling votive lights on the barn shelf’s and stunning floral arrangements from Sticks and Stones, Tolland CT and Sams Club floral.
The dessert taste of the evening was the wedding cake from Modern Bakery in Hartford, CT, an assortment of outstanding homemade pastries from our Five Star + Caterer The Brownstone. Paterson, NJ and a selection of homemade Italian Ice from Chets Italian Ice to cool down those on the dance floor.
This truly was the event of the year and went off without a hitch thanks to the team at Nathan Hale Homestead and our absolutely experienced caterer Mr. Tommy Manzo owner of The Brownstone. One last call out to Ms. Debbie Vinick the wonderful Harpist who provided a great selection of dinner music under our beautiful Taylor Rental Sail tent in the lovely field at the Nathan Hale Homestead.
In closing The Nathan Hale Homestead has so much to offer. While we looked at many other barns The Nathan Hale Homestead is so unique not only in its landscape beauty but the opportunity for the guests to have guided tours of the Homestead during your event. The facility also offers f 3 barns to do what you wish. We chose the main barn for our dance hall, the smaller barn for our Candy bar, the back barn for one of our 2 bars, main barn stalls for serving Italian ice and lower barn stall for bridal party space. No other venue we visited offered this much space to do what you wish.
Five Star all the way. Let you Imigration run wild as you plan your special wedding day at this absolutely stunning location. It was so beautiful and so much fun that I would do it all over again.
God Bless and hope your day is as special as ours ways.Sent on 04/05/2019
