We originally researched our venues online and went to Connecticut for a long weekend intending to see our four favorites. The Stone Barn was - on paper, at least - the bottom of the list when we started. There had been some issues with communication, mainly that the e-mail account used by the coordinator tended to flag my e-mail as spam. (so, a word of advice to anyone contacting them - send an e-mail, but give them a call too and make sure they know to look for your e-mail!) We also weren't keen on the idea of getting married at a golf course. It seemed too cookie cutter/not very us. Seeing the venue/meeting Christina changed our minds. They have two rooms on site which allowed us to do the ceremony in one space and the reception in another. The venue started life as the old barn and much of the stonework is still visible in the fireplace room. The whole thing was very charming and reasonably priced. The coordinator, Christina, was wonderful. She walked us through the options, worked with us on some very odd requests ( we wanted to take down a piece of decor over the fireplace due to glare and they were happy to do so), mocked up a table when we were torn on exactly how we wanted things set up, and was just over all great to work with. She also allowed us to make our final payment at the rehearsal and bring anything we wanted set up the next day to leave overnight, saving us an extra trip and wedding day stress. The food was excellent and they worked with us to accommodate a host of allergies (including making special gluten free meals for some of the guests). The bartender kept the line to a minimum all evening and everyone had a great time. The staff was very attentive, bringing drinks and food to the bridal suite during cocktail hour and checking on us throughout the evening to see if there was anything we needed. We were very happy with our choice!Sent on 10/11/2011

The Stone Barn at Whitney Farms, Monroe, CT. Simply Divine! This is a true gem for delicious food and ambiance. Their main dining room is full of dramatic light from so many windows that overlook sunlit trees. Very elegant décor of cream and white that made it perfect for my daughter’s bridal shower in May. And the food: remarkable! We chose the buffet (very affordable). Don’t miss the bowtie pasta with Alfredo sauce, so silky, so light. We added the roast turkey breast carving station, and everybody raved how succulent it tasted. Absolute first-rate management and wait staff all the way. They made a beautiful day for the bride-to-be and all her guests.Sent on 06/21/2011
