    Seamless, Unforgettable Wedding Experience!

    I can't even begin to express how pleased my husband and I were with our wedding experience at The Candlewood Inn. From our initial visit, to our final farewell on our wedding night, every aspect completely exceeded our expectations. Conor, Christian and the entire team were not only accommodating and on top of every single detail, but they truly made you feel like your wedding day was the most important thing to them and our happiness was their main priority. Every question or concern we had during the planning process was addressed quickly and thoroughly. There was always constant communication and I felt at ease through the many planning stages. There was also nothing that the team didn't have a plan for. The day of our wedding, a rainstorm decided to make its debut right before our outdoor ceremony. Before I could even dwell on the disappointment of this, the team jumped into action, pushing back the ceremony just a bit, tracking the storm, keeping our guests comfortable and ultimately making our outdoor experience a total success. The bridal attendants were nothing short of amazing, as well. They constantly made sure that I had what I needed, bringing me snacks, water, Advil, you name it! I can say I felt like an absolute princess that day! On top of it, my guests raved about this wedding experience as well. Multiple people told me they've never enjoyed the food at a wedding as much as they did here and that it was the most seamless wedding experience they had been to. Choosing The Candlewood Inn for our venue was the best decision ever. We are forever grateful to the staff for giving us such an amazing experience and memories that will last a lifetime!

    Best Wedding Venue!!

    I don't even know where to begin to review the Candlewood Inn because our wedding day celebration was absolutely perfect. The setting was beautiful and the food was delicious, but it was really the staff that made our event so special. From the moment we met with Conor two years ago, we felt like we were in the hands of people who truly cared about us and cared about making our wedding celebration magical. Christian and Kirsten were so responsive and helpful in the entire planning process, and of course, on the day of.

    Speaking of the day of, our bridal attendants, Delilah and Gina, were incredible! They were so attentive and thoughtful and made the entire day (from our 10 am arrival to our 12:30 am departure) run seamlessly. They were one step ahead of us while we were getting ready, bringing us things we didn't know we needed until they brought them. They were there for me, my girls, Max, and his boys every moment and it did not go unnoticed.

    I can not get over how easy it was to plan a wedding at the Candlewood Inn. From our drop-off appointment to loading up the car at the end of the night, everything ran like a well-oiled machine and made the wedding day itself go perfectly. I'm honestly so sad that the wedding is over and I just keep saying to Max, "why would anyone get married anywhere else??".

    I know I glossed over the setting and the food in the beginning, but those aspects of the wedding were obviously also amazing. The lake and the gazebo are truly a beautiful backdrop to get married in front of, and the venue inside is equally as stunning.

    The food was outstanding. Everybody LOVED the New England station and the gelato station, as well as their dinner. We've received a ton of compliments on how great all of the food was; many have said it's the best wedding food they've had.

    So many of our guests have told us that our wedding was the best wedding they've ever attended, and I'd have to (with bias, of course), agree. It was a perfect event from start to finish. I highly highly recommend!!
