Magical venue, impeccable service!

Patti and the rest of the Simsbury Inn team brought all of our wedding dreams to life! Patti worked within our budget and our visions to make our day special. She was incredibly responsive over the past several years of planning, and always ensured that our day would be magical. Overall, I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else!

Timeless, beautiful, organized, effortless, delicious food/CAKE & magical!!

I truly had the most wonderful wedding weekend - My wedding day coordinator was Jeanine and let me tell you, she knows her wedding stuff!! She was so helpful and had such great expertise, advice, guidance, and enthusiasm for my wedding day. Jeanine assisted me with the timeline, where to take pictures, food/decor suggestions, answered ALL my questions, and so much more. She came to the bridal suite right before the ceremony to check in and say hello (that was so special), helped bustle my dress, and carried out the line-up/introductions to the reception.

The day/timeline went so smoothly & I was treated like a total princess because they had everything handled (I was total type A when it came to the organization - but I was able to relax and just enjoy my day). Shortly after my HUSBAND and I got back to Simsbury for pictures after our ceremony at St. Mary's Church, we were greeted by Lori & another waitstaff (Chelsea? - sorry I suck at names!!) with champagne and horderves who waited on us the whole time. Following us around helping with my dress, serving us much needed food/drink, assisting the videographer/photographer and just positive/fun attitudes! I didn't expect this at all, such a bonus! All my vendors communicated effectively with the Simsbury staff and worked together nicely.

I believe we ended up having around 150-155 (invited about 185)people actually attend and there was plenty of room and guests felt comfortable. It is such a beautiful venue, I can't say enough about that, beautiful spacious Talcott Room for getting ready and the bridal suite, Evergreens Room for rehearsal dinner & cocktail hour, of course the Laurel Ballroom for the reception/brunch the next day. I believe the only small tiny issue we had was the security guard ending the party a bit too early - possibly due to a variety of factors including communication - regardless it didn't ruin the weekend.

The cake was gorgeous - and everyone raved about how delicious and unique it was (Guinness chocolate toffee cake), I'd highly recommend that one!! Overall, Simsbury has great packages that have a lot included to make wedding planning effortless, magical, and a great weekend for guests. We are all still talking about it & everyone raves about how much fun they had. Such a great time, a big thank you to Jeanine and the staff at the Simsbury Inn!!

The Simsbury Inn is amazing!

I recently had my wedding reception at the Simsbury Inn. From the beginning of signing our contract in 2019 to rescheduling our date from 2020 to 2021 due to COVID-19, they were a pleasure to work with. They did not charge a rebooking fee and they did not increase any of the prices that we had originally agreed upon. From the appetizers, dinner and the wedding cake, the food was delicious. Our guests commented on how wonderful the food tasted and how attentive the staff were to every need. Many of our guests also used the Inn to stay overnight and we hosted a brunch the next morning. If you are looking for an elegant, classy venue for any event, I highly recommend the Simsbury Inn. Thank you to Patti and her staff for making our special day so memorable and stress free!
