Our English Style Barn has become one of Connecticut's most sought after venues for weddings. There is simply nothing quite like the Barns at Wesleyan Hills. Sweeping views of our majestic willow trees, pond, islands and fountain create a perfect ceremony location and our 140 year old barn lends a very special vibe to your event. Also enjoy the newly constructed (2016) Middle Barn for cocktail hour, crafted by local artisans and made of the same hemlock wood as the original barn. The Barns at Wesleyan Hills has been featured on "Say Yes To The Dress", is an editor's pick on The Knot website, and was featured as the Country Dream Wedding venue in Disney's Fairy Tale Weddings by David Tutera.

From the moment we arrived at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding. The venue itself is absolutely stunning! And if that's not enough the CT Wedding Group is amazing! They are true professionals and know the field inside and out. From our initial tour through the day of our wedding, they guided us every step of the way. Our planners, Mary-Beth and Samantha were always quick to answer all of my questions and offer advice. They sent emails throughout our engagement to keep us on track in terms of planning and to suggest vendors. They made the process so easy and hassle free. They also made the year leading up to our wedding special - from our tasting to our details appointment and beyond. They host so many weddings yet we never felt like just another couple, they made the experience truly memorable. Our day of coordinator, Cathy, was the best! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. At our last appointment she walked us through everything and helped ease our nerves. The day of she took control and we didn't have to worry about a thing! She made sure we were happy, always had a drink in our hand and had something to eat.Our guests had the best time and are still raving about the unique venue and the AMAZING food! It was the most perfect day ever and I cannot thank this amazing team enough.

It was the more than we could have ever imagined. I have been dreaming of my wedding since i was a little girl, my wife never thought she'd want a big wedding - and the barns and staff met both of our personalities to create the most magical day of our lives. we wish we could do it all again

When I first met with Mary-Beth, she said “we ensure that you don’t have to worry about a thing on your wedding day”. I didn’t realize how important or how true that statement was until my wedding day. Mary-Beth and her team were amazing to work with. They were passionate, responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. This was particularly important for me as we started to plan our wedding when we were living overseas and had a particularly large guest list (just over 200 people), and they made it a breeze. The week leading up to the wedding we met with our day of coordinator, Lindsey, and Cate who would be working that night. They couldn’t be nicer or more helpful. Every detail I had communicated to Mary-Beth and Samantha throughout the planning process had already been relayed to the day of team. I left the meeting with total confidence that our vision for the wedding would be executed and that I no longer had to worry about any details. On the actual day of the wedding, the barns couldn’t be more stunning. The venue was perfect, the food was amazing (really it was restaurant quality, and came out hot!) and the guests couldn’t stop talking about how it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Guests were particularly excited about our “best of everything” dessert station and donut wall. Lindsey and Cate were on top of every detail. Anytime my husband, mom or I had a question or concern, they were one step ahead and had already handled it (for example, not enough people took our early bus back to the hotel, so the bus company had to make 3 trips for the late bus which Lindsey coordinated directly with the bus company and I didn’t need to think about). I can’t say enough about how amazing my wedding day was and how great it was to work with the Barns. Book your wedding there, I promise it is worth every penny.

Nicole & Zach, Thank you so much for your heartfelt review. Cate and I had an absolute blast celebrating alongside you both on your big day! Your Cigar and Whiskey Bar was such a hit with your guests! We absolutely loved the personal touch of having table names, with all of the places you had traveled together! Congratulations and best wishes in your life together!! Best, Lindsay

The one word that continues to come to my mind when I think of The Barns at Wesleyan Hills is FABULOUS! The very first time my husband and myself (along with my parents) met with Mary-Beth at The Barns for our first meeting, we knew we had found the perfect place to have our wedding. Everyone in the office was so friendly and welcoming, always going above and beyond with everything they did. I can honestly say that I never encountered one negative, mean, or unwelcoming person in the entire facility...literally...from the wait staff, chef, office personnel, coordinating team, etc...every single person was incredible! One of the most amazing things (amongst many others) that The Barns does for their bride and groom is always making it about the bride and groom. I never once felt that my vision or ideas for the day were unaccessible. Mary-Beth, Samantha, and Allie who all worked with use as our coordinators made planning our wedding that much easier. They were always there for me if I had a question, concern, or just needed to talk to someone about something for the wedding. They were always one step ahead of me as well, sending me reminders, check-lists, and updates on what we should be focusing on that week/month, which was extremely helpful! Aside from the amazing coordinating team at The Barns, the venue is absolutely stunning. From the grounds, to the middle barn, and the incredible big barn, every single area of the venue is breathtaking. I am sure every bride says this, but, I can honestly say that my wedding day was the most amazing and incredible day. I never once felt stressed or nervous over how the day way going to play out, because I knew that I had an incredible coordinating team at The Barns behind me 110%. I cannot say enough good things about The Barns, they truly made our wedding day that much more special and fabulous. Our wedding day was beautiful, incredible, and truly the best day of our lives!

This place is amazing. From the people/staff, to the decor options, to the help in planning, there are literally not words that can describe how truly wonderful this group was to work with. People are still raving about the food and venue a month after the actual wedding. They made every detail of our ceremony and reception perfect. I can’t thank this team enough for making our wedding so truly special and memorable!

Christine & Ryan, Thank you for your kind words! Cate and I loved celebrating alongside you both on your special day! I wish you endless years of love and happiness in your life together! Congratulations!! Sincerely, Lindsay

I cannot begin to express how wonderful my wedding was at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills. In the months, weeks, and days leading up to it, Mary Beth and her team were incredibly responsive to all of my questions and concerns. My email inquiries were answered within a few hours and she never made me feel like I was an annoyance. The planning process was overwhelming at times, but she succeeded at putting me at ease. As I pulled into the Barns property on the day of my wedding, the ceremony site was set up EXACTLY as I envisioned! CT Wedding Group NAILED IT!!!! They even displayed two wreaths that I made! I was so moved by how beautiful it looked that it brought me to tears. The Barns in itself was breathtaking. I loved seeing my special touches placed throughout the decor. We had Jenna as our coordinator and she was wonderful! (Hence the precious NAILED IT comment). We met with her the day before and she remembered every single detail! She was helpful and kind to everyone in my wedding party! The majority of my guests have told me that this was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to; from the shabby chic elegance of the Barns to the off the charts autumn menu to the beverage service! I would recommend this venue to anyone hands down and I hope someday I attend a wedding there so I can eat the food that everyone raved so my about! (Yes, it was that busy that my husband and I barely ate).
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Tina and Nuno!! I am so glad I was able to be apart of your special day from start to finish! From the moment you decided to host your wedding with us at The Barns, I knew your wedding would be one for the books! All of your Fall decor was such a blast to decorate with, and your special touches were spot on- hello cute champagne glasses!! We can't wait to see pictures!! All the Best! Jenna

Our wedding day truly could not have been any more perfect. From the rehearsal to the very end the staff, especially Cathy and Kate were on top of everything! Our ceremony and reception went so smoothly, if anything that shouldn't have happened, happened matt and I had no idea about it. I am gluten free and everything that was brought to me throughout the entire wedding was gluten free and delicious! Our guests went out of there way to come tell us how great the food was, how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the staff was! I felt that they consistently kept me on track with everything without making me stressed at all. Any questions I had were answered in such a timely fashion! They made it all so easy! I can't thank all of you enough!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Hi Lisa! Thank you so much for this wonderful review! It's so nice to know that your guests were so happy, this is what we strive for! The whole team here at CT Wedding Group wishes you and Matt the best! -Cathy

My husband and I got married August 26th, 2017 and can I say that my wedding day was truly a fairy tale and the best day of our lives! The Barns at Wesleyan Hills is the most stunning barn we had ever seen and we are so blessed that we picked to have our dream wedding there. Not only was the venue beautiful inside and out but the Wedding Planning Team was as well. From day one we knew that Mary-Beth, Samantha, Jessica, Lindsay & Cate were going to make all of our dreams come true. There professionalism is truly top notch but what meant so much to my husband and I was that they treated us like family. They truly cared about making our wedding day flawless and if at any point we had questions/concerns they were easily answered with a solution. They made wedding planning so stress free to were I truly enjoyed every step of it. The moment I walked into the barn on the day of my wedding, I cried because every detail was absolutely perfect. I truly felt as though I was a princess in a fairy tale standing under those gorgeous chandeliers in the most stunning barn I have ever seen. The FOOD...can I just say all of it was the most amazing food I have ever tasted. Our family and friends can not stop raving over how this was the best wedding they have ever attended and that the food was out of this world! The blazing donut station.. every bride has to have this! Most amazing dessert ever and our loved ones went crazy for it. If I would do it all again I wouldn't change a thing, they exceeded all of our expectations and made our wedding day absolutely perfect, 10/10, best day ever. Love Kara & Matt

I would highly recommend getting married at The Barns. The CT wedding group made the entire event seamless and enjoyable. We booked our wedding a year in advance and throughout the whole year they were phenomenal. We are from MA and knew what kind of venue we wanted. We wanted the look of a DIY wedding without the heavy lifting of a DIY wedding, and they delivered! They would check in every month to remind you of wedding "to-dos." They made the entire process fantastic, and I would recommend it to anyone planning a wedding in the CT area!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Alanna and Luke! Thank you so much for your kind words!! Being apart of your wedding day was such a treasure. You and your families were such a pleasure to work with- I cannot thank you enough for including us in your special day! 8/25 <3
