An Absolute Dream Venue
We had a Sunday fall wedding and myself and the bridal party stayed at the venue all day getting ready. The bridal attendants were phenomenal, tending to our every need. Brook was my day of attendant and was absolutely amazing, she was able to anticipate my every need, was always checking in on me to make sure I was okay and wasn't overwhelmed. I felt so safe and at ease with her. Plus, she is a RIOT. We were cracking jokes all day and she even through on a wig and fake mustache during our ceremony (which made for an epic photo opp).
Krista the event manager is such a sweetheart. She was so easy to talk to and plan with and was a gem the day of, making sure everything was running smoothly. The day would have not been possible without her. She also came up to me throughout the night with photo opp ideas that I would have never thought of, and made sure my husband and I were taken care of.
All in all, I could rave about this venue and the staff forever. We definitely made the right choice booking here and highly recommend to everyone. The views are phenomenal, the building is gorgeous and the staff is 10/10.
The venue was perfect. We highly recommend the venue and the team from Candlewood Inn
Beautiful wedding day

We've performed many of weddings here over the years. Food and service here is of the highest quality, one of our favorite venues for sure! 3 thumbs up!
We've had the pleasure of performing at The Candlewood Inn for dozens of weddings over the past few years and are continually impressed with the level of service and professionalism this venue exudes! This place is the farthest thing from a wedding factory and I think many couples will enjoy its originality and prime waterfront location. If you're looking for a venue that is unique yet conducive to a fun wedding reception, I would seriously consider The Candlewood Inn! You won't be disappointed.
This venue is one of the most amazing places to host any kind of event. The staff is amazing and the food is mouthwatering. The atmosphere is second to none. You must make this venue your top priority to see. You will not be dissapointed. Jim Nuzzo Dance To The Music Entertainment
