Best Wedding Ever with CWG at The Barns!
All I can say is Amazing Amazing Amazing!!!! We booked The Barns at Wesleyan Hills for our November wedding in Connecticut. Our road to choosing a venue spanned many months with visits to multiple sites around CT until we fell in love with The Barns and CT Wedding Group. The moment we stepped foot into The Barns, we knew this was going to be our venue. The journey started in 2017 when we met with Mary-Beth who was amazing through the whole process, answering all of our questions. I’m pretty sure “No” is not in CWG’s vocabulary. There are different packages and additions you can add to make The Barns specific to your style to achieve the wedding of your dreams. When you book with CWG, you are not only booking The Barns, but you are hiring an outstanding group of wedding planners, chefs, and coordinators whose only goal is to make your wedding day a dream come true. The year of planning was easy and flawless thanks to CWG. They will send you reminders, set up an AMAZING food tasting event, and greet you with smiles along the way. On the day of your wedding, you can relax and enjoy the best day of your life knowing everything is taken care of and you hired the best wedding group. No stone is left unturned and the group’s attention to every detail was appreciated and noticed by all the guests.
Our same day coordinator Lindsay was AMAZING. It rained the day before and while taking pictures outside, part of the wedding dress got muddy. I vividly remember both Lindsay and Cate were on their knees before the reception scrubbing away with club soda to get the mud off the wedding dress. This is an example of the details that didn’t go unnoticed and in which we were thankful for. Lindsay juggled so many things that day and even flawlessly coordinated our two dogs to walk down the aisle. The food was delicious and the presentation was impeccable. Our wedding was over a month ago and guests are still commenting on how the wedding food is the best they’ve ever had. The coordination between workers and guests was seamless and the day could not have been more PERFECT. Special shout out to Mary-Beth, Samantha, Jenna, Cate, Ashley, and Lindsay for making our wedding day one of the best days of our lives. For those looking for a wedding venue and group, choose The Barns at Wesleyan Hills, Connecticut Wedding Group, and don’t look back. Choosing them will be one of the best decisions you make.

Professional well run detail oriented and FANTASTIC
One word. Exceptional. From the first moment you visit the Barns at Wesleyan to the time you exit after your wedding…everything is perfectly executed. The staff is helpful from the office (thank you Ashley) to sales (perfect, Michelle) to the planning team (Allie and Nicole!). Whether you are an organized uber planner or a “please do everything for me” kind of bride…the barns will fit your needs. The décor (and there are many different themes that can be used to supplement the beautiful barns) and the food is OUTSTANDING. Every concern we had, every suggestion was met with deep thought and we even had a few enhancements that were not part of the normal way of doing things…so don’t be afraid to ask! It was a dream wedding filled with lots of love…..don’t be afraid to visit the Barns…you won’t regret it!
