A perfect wedding at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills
Our wedding day was the most incredible day of our lives, in great part because of the Barns at Wesleyan Hills and CT Wedding Group. In every single way they overdelivered, and our wedding day was better than I could have imagined, despite having planned every bit of it! The Barns made sure our wedding day experience was exquisite by providing our guests with the most incredible food, fabulous drinks, gorgeous decor, and an impeccable flow. I was so impressed with the time, care, and quality of every single thing the Barns does. Everyone who works there takes tremendous pride in what they do, and it shows! Leading up to the big day, any question or concern I had was immediately addressed, often with a personal phone call. On the day of, our wedding coordinator took incredible care of us, and we also noticed how genuinely kind and happy every server and bartender seemed. It was a one-of-a-kind night, and while I may be a bit biased... I have never attended a more gorgeous wedding. Thank you!!Sent on 07/30/2021

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.Sent on 06/15/2021

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!Sent on 07/06/2021
