The most perfect day at the most picturesque venue in CT!

We got married on 10/8/22 and chose the buyout option for our 120 person wedding. We had our ceremony in the pavilion, cocktail hour on the wrap around porch, dinner in the restaurant and dancing in the pavilion. From the beginning of our process, Melanie was a pleasure to work with. We are so grateful you were with us every step of the way. Melanie was very responsive to emails and phone calls and provided details to questions we had. We also had a final detail meeting a month prior to review final day of details which was so helpful. Two days before the wedding we had a ceremony walkthrough with the bridal party. The wedding exceeded our expectations in so many ways, it was so perfect and magical! Your staff were so attentive and kind and took such care of us and our family and friends. Our guests could not stop raving about the ambiance, the venue鈥檚 breathtaking views, the food, drinks and flow of the evening. Words cannot express how truly grateful we are that we were able to have our wedding at the most perfect place.

Perfect venue!

We were so happy to have had our wedding at the beautiful Fox Hopyard! Melanie and her team were truly incredible through every step of the planning. Throughout the process I had so many emails back and forth with Melanie and she was always on top of every detail! On the day of the wedding she and her team did an incredible job bringing our wedding to life. Everyone raved about the food, the service, and the great energy the Fox Hopyard team brought. Knowing Melanie and the team had everything under controlled allowed me and my husband to truly enjoy the day. We are so appreciative of their hard work to make our special day perfect!

Bridal Showers

We had such a great experience with On the Rocks. Since we were organizing during COVID restrictions, the staff was fantastic with accommodating our requests and working with us to make sure we were able to celebrate our bride.

The staff were all so great and friendly.
The location was beautiful, spacious, and fit our need perfectly.
The food and drinks were delicious and our guests told us they were very pleased with their meals.
