    Out of the Park Fantastic!

    From our initial visit to the Barns, thru a Covid delay to our daughter's beautiful wedding and reception, the management and staff of CT Wedding Group set the gold standard for hospitality. Every request or change of plans was met with professionalism and a "can do" attitude, and always accompanied by a smile! We cannot rave enough about how much we loved our time at the Barns. Our "day of" coordinator Samantha in particular was simply incredible. Knowing Samantha was there to help tackle any hurdles we might encounter took a huge load off our minds. We received numerous compliments about how beautiful the Barns was and how courteous and friendly the staff was the day of the wedding.

    Eileen! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience and kind words. I am so grateful to have been a part of their incredible wedding day! Myself and the entire team had the most wonderful time helping you, Kat, Tony and your loved ones celebrate. From start to finish, their day was filled with so much love, laughter and joy! I am still swooning over that stunning seating chart you made them and we can not wait to see their photos!!

    Congratulations again to you all!!

    A day we will never forget

    We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day or experience with Connecticut Wedding Group, or a better location than The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. The Barn was beautiful, the food was amazing and the staff went above and beyond. Our guests are still telling us a month after our wedding how amazing it was. Mary-Beth was beyond helpful during the whole planning process and always available to answer any questions we had and Cate was a literal angel on our wedding day doing everything to make our day perfect!

    Congratulations again to you both!
