    Highly Recommended!

    I cannot say enough good things about Gourmet Galley Catering, The Meadows Venue in Stonington CT and more specifically about Danielle Bailey, who took care of us from day 1. She was SO easy to work with right from the start, truly understanding our vision and the type of wedding we were looking for. A lot of venues out there try to pressure you to spend more money with add-ons, etc. but Danielle was truly there to help us capture the wedding of our dreams. She was available and responsive throughout the entire planning process, we even met and chatted for brainstorms were we came up with some unique ideas. She was incredibly helpful and understood which details were important to us and took care of everything. I can honestly say our wedding was perfect, and I owe a lot of it to Danielle and the entire staff at The Meadows. It was such a charming but laid back venue that made our guests feel incredibly comfortable and welcomed. Thank you so much for making my dream wedding come true!!!!!

    Absolutely Perfect!

    My husband & I got married at The Meadows on 10/26 and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice. We worked with Danielle from Gourmet Galley, and she helped make everything as easy and seamless as possible. From the food to the foliage, our guests were so impressed with the venue. The bridal suite also certainly didn’t hurt as my bridesmaids and I hardly wanted to leave! I didn’t have to worry about a single thing on my wedding day and I couldn’t have asked for more.

    4/27 wedding, Perfect

    The Meadows did a wonderful job. The thought of the day brings me to tears, in the best way. The Meadows allowed us to bring our own decor and they decorated for us. Everything was beautiful and better than we both could've imagined. The staff was polite and on top of everything the whole night. Every time our drink was getting low, someone would be right over with a fresh beverage. Danielle was very organized, efficient, and did an amazing job answering any questions we had, as well as very accommodating. The food from Gourmet Galley was awesome, and we received many compliments on the food. The bridal suite is big, adorable, has perfect lighting for photos, and includes a full kitchen and bathroom. I would definitely recommend this venue. Thank you so much!
