Everything from the decorations, to the food and drinks was more than I could have hoped for.

Not only is the Pavilion a beautiful venue with everything we had hoped for, but the entire crew went above and beyond to make sure our night was perfect.

IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING DAY OF OUR LIVES!

Dear Michelle and Team, Thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding! Not only is the Pavilion a beautiful venue with everything we had hoped for, but the entire crew went above and beyond to make sure our night was perfect. Michelle, you definitely made the entire wedding a breeze for us. Any of our worries were completely gone when we met you. Then everyone from the amazing bartenders to the helpful servers made sure that us and our guests were well taken care of. We cannot thank you enough for everything!

Everyone told us that our food was hands down the best wedding food they have ever had.

IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING DAY OF OUR LIVES!

I cannot say enough positive things about the Pavilion on Crystal Lake and the staff at CT Wedding Group. Every little detail was attended to and we could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. The setting was beautiful, our wedding planner (Melinda) ensured that everything ran smoothly, and the food and drinks were amazing! Everyone told us that our food was hands down the best wedding food they have ever had. And thanks to the wonderful staff, I was actually able to eat on my wedding day, which I have heard is unheard of!

I am so thankful for everything CT Wedding Group and Mary-Beth did to make my wedding day so special. It will definitely be a day that I will never forget.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

don't even know where to start with this review. I had the most amazing group of vendors I could have asked for, but The Pavilion on Crystal Lake and everyone at CT Wedding Group really outdid themselves. I want to especially thank Mary-Beth. I went into my final meeting with every small detail planned out, ready to walk Mary-Beth through every step to make sure everything would turn out okay. As soon as I began talking to her, I felt assured that everything would be perfect and I had absolutely no reason to worry. She was right. I got ready the next day and completely forgot about everything except enjoying my pre-wedding pampering and the company of my family and close friends. When I got to the pavilion, everything was perfect. Nothing was out of place and there were even some additional decorations that made everything come together nicely. Mary-Beth made me feel relaxed the entire day and directed everyone seamlessly. I didn't have a worry in the world, not even the impending rain put a damper on my day. Everything from the decorations, to the food and drinks was more than I could have hoped for. I am so thankful for everything CT Wedding Group and Mary-Beth did to make my wedding day so special. It will definitely be a day that I will never forget. Especially because all of our guests keep ranting about it, specifically the food! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU so much!

On the night of the wedding we felt like royalty!

IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING DAY OF OUR LIVES!

I had my wedding back in February and the reception was held at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake with the CT Wedding Group; it was perfect! I worked with Mary Beth who was amazing; she was so nice and easy to work with. I feel that one of the great things about the people at the CT Wedding Group is that they listened to my wants and offered suggestions when needed, but weren't pushy and I never felt pressured to pick a different package or a vendor (DJ, Cake, etc.) outside of their preferred vendor list. They worked with me! The second my then husband to be and I walked into the Pavilion we knew that it was the place! The barn style was just what we were looking for and the dance floor was a great size! We knew there would be a lot of people dancing and did not want them to feel crowded. On the night of the wedding we felt like royalty! The staff made sure we had enough to eat while we were taking our pictures; brought us coffee when ever we asked; and made a salad just for me since I did not like the one my husband picked for the evening. One other detail that stood out to me was how beautifully they decorated the entrance way and tables with our personal items. Our favors were little paintings on easels which doubled as table designators. The way they were set up with the personal pictures we brought was perfect and more than I could have imagined! The guests also felt like they were treated very well! To this day, months later, I still have guests tell me how great the staff and food were at the Pavilion! They tell me it was the best wedding they have ever been to and I attribute that to the excellent staff and wonderful atmosphere of the Pavilion on Crystal Lake. The staffs attention to detail and professionalism just reaffirm that my husband and I picked the perfect place to have our wedding reception. Thank you to all at the Pavilion and CT Wedding Group that helped make our day perfect!

Everything was completely taken care of so that on the day of the wedding, I just had to show up. We had our own personal planner for the day.

FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, THANK YOU SO MUCH!

We had our wedding here in July. They were absolutely wonderful, from the time of booking, right until the very end! The venue was recommended to us by CT Wedding Group because we couldn't afford The Barns at Wesleyan. Everything was completely taken care of so that on the day of the wedding, I just had to show up. We had our own personal planner for the day. A few days before the wedding, we gave her all of our decorations and she set everything up for us, knew exactly where things would look good, and took care of any issues that arose immediately. The food was absolutely to die for! They have local and seasonal cuisine for both dinners and dessert! Had the boneless spare ribs and they were delectable. The staff here are wonderful, courteous, and friendly. This venue is highly recommended!!!

On the day of the wedding Laura made sure everything was in place and exactly as we had wanted the room to look, and it exceeded our expectations.

IT WAS THE MOST AMAZING DAY OF OUR LIVES!

My now husband and I just recently had our wedding at The Pavilion three weeks ago. It was the most amazing day of our lives. Much of this had to do with the amazing staff that worked with us at The Pavilion on Crystal Lake and The Connecticut Wedding Group. Not only were they easy to work with while planning the wedding, but the week of the wedding and the day of the wedding they were so attentive to me and my husband, as well as our families. We were lucky enough to work with Laura, who took over every aspect of the wedding the week leading up to it so we could enjoy our friends and family. On the day of the wedding Laura made sure everything was in place and exactly as we had wanted the room to look, and it exceeded our expectations. I was blown away with how amazing the venue looked. The wait staff also was so attentive to our guests, food was brought out quickly, and all the food was hot (which is important to many guests, especially family) and delicious. Also, the food is locally grown which is something else my husband and I loved. Knowing where our food is coming from is so great, and knowing its from a local farm in CT is even better! The staff that was in charge of our bridal party and my husband and I were so attentive as well, and brought us tons of food while taking pictures. Brian was our main man, and made sure my husband and I were fed and always had a drink in hand, especially water! Without him we would not have eaten or drank any water. He was amazing. It truly is a hidden gem in CT, and all our guests kept commenting on how great and unique this venue is. Two of our guests even booked their wedding their for next year which we are so happy to be getting a chance to visit it again. The inside it just gorgeous, and the outdoor aspect of the venue creates two venues in one! A late spring, summer or fall wedding is the perfect time to book this venue, especially if you have a large group. A large group can totally benefit from utilizing the outdoor aspect of the venue. The venue books up very quickly so I encourage anyone who is considering it, to not let a date go for too long. It will be gone quick. Again, we owe it all to the amazing staff, and our amazing coordinator Laura. She truly is a rockstar, and made sure the day was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend this venue, and her as a coordinator. She was the most fun to work with, and I was so sad when the night was over because I enjoyed her so much. :) happy planning!
