Garden Party Wedding of Our Dreams!

May 25, 2024 was the wedding of our dreams at the Garden at the Hops! My husband and I set out to find a venue in CT (where we're both from originally) that was beautiful but relaxed and was not a country club. Our original vision was a backyard wedding but the logistics were way too overwhelming. When we found The Garden at The Hops - we knew we had found it. Anna, from our first visit, to our wedding day and beyond was right there with us anticipating needs and helping our dreams come to life. I cannot recommend the Hops Company enough. The space itself is beautiful but I had visions of extra details all around our wedding and Anna, Shanleigh and their team helped coordinate every last vendor detail from the rentals, band, our photographer, to the florist, to the set up of my intricate seating chart, assembly of our welcome table and our mixed/match style tablescapes. When we wanted a signature cocktail that was slightly different than the standard offerings, Anna got it done seamlessly. They understood our vision and brought it to life beyond our wildest dreams. Our MDW wedding (2024) was everything we could have dreamed of and it was all thanks to the Hops Company team. 10000/10 would recommend. We can't thank you enough!!!

The Perfect Wedding

We just got married at THC this past weekend and I must say it was the wedding of our dreams! Anna was absolutely wonderful to work with and did a fantastic job coordinating our planning and our day. She was very responsive throughout the entire planning process with all our questions and even the few days leading up to our wedding she was quick to answer any last minute questions. The venue is a hidden gem and was everything that we were looking for! Anna and her team were on top of everything and made the whole day truly relaxing. They provide you with preferred vendors and a few catering options, I would suggest going with those preferred vendors because they all really work well with the THC team, everything was seamless. We were blown away with our wedding and would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique and beautiful place to get married!
