    Phenomenal venue


    The most incredible wedding venue we could have ever imagined. They took all of our ideas and went above and beyond to make sure they were perfect in every way. I may be biased, but Lexi is by far the most incredible wedding coordinator to exist and is top notch. The additional support staff was phenomenal as well. Needless to say, this venue is a must for your wedding, your vow renewal, your anniversary party.. etc - you name it!!! Can’t wait for our anniversary celebration here

    Hi Amanda! Celebrating with you and Chris was beyond amazing! I will never forget your incredible GLOW PARTY!! Thank you so much for your kind words and for allowing me to celebrate with you both! I wish you years of love and happiness! With Joy, Lexi :)

    Absolutely Amazing

    Our spring wedding at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake was absolutely amazing. The entire staff is responsive, professional and experienced. Our day of coordinator Lexi facilitated everything day of and because of her and the team we had the best day ever. The food was beyond delicious and the atmosphere so romantic. I would recommend the Pavilion on Crystal Lake and the Connecticut Wedding Group to any couple.

    The Pavilion on Crystal Lake's reply:

    Hi Rachel and Mackenzie!! I cannot express this enough, but I am so glad I was able to be a part of your wedding day! You two are the funniest, sweetest humans and I am so glad you had such an amazing day! Our team is looking forward to your photos from Teresa and a clip from your ceremony with that original song!! I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!! With Joy, Lexi

    Helped Create our Dream Day

    I don't know if we can put into words how highly we recommend CT Wedding Group and the Pavilion. The venue was beautiful, the foord is something our guests are still talking about, and the coordinators are absolute rock stars. We feel so lucky to have come across people that truly care about tailoring everything to our dream wedding vision while guiding us step by step along the way. A special shoutout to Shelby for being our hero of the day down to the final detail.
