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.

The Barns at Wesleyan Hills is fully heated and air-conditioned for your comfort during our wedding season (April through December. The Barns closed January 1 - March 31 each year)

Breathe easy on your wedding day - a wedding coordinator will be with you on-site all day and our venue is generator protected!

No weddings can compare to a wedding at the Barns with CT Wedding Group, they are the best. Our wedding day was perfect..the decor, the food, the service, the space, the people. Allie is a dream coordinator who understood exactly what we wanted and even predicted what we didn't know we wanted. No request was turned down (and we had a lot of new requests), CT Wedding Group was going to make it work no matter what. We will forever be grateful for the memories they helped create for us.

Can't begin to describe how grateful I am for a perfect wedding experience. The guests can't stop raving about the food, the service, and the decor. Cathy was truly the most amazing and helpful and every other positive adjective I can think of coordinator anyone could have ever had. Promote her! _ Let me just say this: I wish i could get married again just so that I could choose CT Wedding Group again. I was not stressed in the slightest planning the wedding and that is all owed to a wonderful planning team. 10000000000/10; would recommend a million times over.
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Danielle & Logan! Thank you so much for your amazing review- you're adorable! I loved being part of your special day, from the ceremony inside the barn alcove which was so beautiful and touching, to watching you have a BLAST in your photo booth all night. What a nice feeling it is to know that I helped take away the stress and let you enjoy your day. Cheers! -Cathy & The Barns Crew

My husband and I had an absolutely perfect wedding day at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills on 12/17/17! CT wedding Group is a well-oiled machine that is efficient while still providing a unique experience to every couple on their wedding day. The staff at CT Wedding Group is professional and warm and made wedding planning as stress-free as possible. Our day-of-coordinator, Cathy went above and beyond to make our wishes come true and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. We had our ceremony and reception at the Barns and it was absolutely stunning. The food was amazing and our signature drinks were a huge hit! I am very grateful to everyone who helped to make our day everything we imagined it to be and more!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Olivia & Tom! Thank you so much for the kind words. You and your family were a pleasure to have, it makes me so happy knowing that we helped make your special day "perfect". Your indoor ceremony was so warm and filled the barn with love and smiles, so happy to have witnessed it! Congrats! We can't wait to see pictures !

We had a winter wedding at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills and it was the best experience we've ever had. The team at the Barns helped with all aspects of our wedding from picking decorations to match our rustic theme, menu selections, seating arrangements, and they were ready to help at the drop of a hat. The day of coordinator was amazing and overall our day was so much better knowing they were in charge and on top of everything.

There are not enough good words to accurately describe how wonderful and amazing the team at Connecticut Wedding Group is. We had the pleasure of working closely with Mary-Beth and Allie and it was truly a match made in heaven! We can’t forget about Cate either!!! Truly an unbelievable team who honestly care about what you want and invests themselves into making your dream a reality. You can also ask 1 million questions and they answer them without you feeling like a pain and they are so happy to do it! My husband and I are ones who shop around and look at different options but when we got engaged, we only looked at one venue: The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. Once we saw it in person, there was no question of where we would be getting married and there was no point in looking anywhere else. It was absolutely perfect in every way. From the amazing farm to table cuisine to the rustic chic environment – it was everything we wanted! We could not be happier with our choice! Not only was the planning process a breeze (and actually enjoyable!), the night was a dream come true. People cannot stop talking about the food – we highly suggest the Smothered Mac & Cheese Bar as well as the Best of Everything station for dessert. Everyone was so impressed and could not get enough! But that was another amazing thing – there was so much of everything! The service was outstanding; everyone was taken care of at all times. Rob and I were actually treated like royalty! Either Allie or Cate were always checking in on us to see if we needed anything at all. My husband and I are truly sad that the wedding is over. The group we met felt more like friends/family and we will miss everyone so much! We would pick The Barns over and over again!!!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Christina! Is it possible to be totally happy and sad at the same time that your Wedding has come and gone?! I'm so happy that I was there to help you celebrate and that it was everything you were hoping for, but so so sad that we can't do it again and again and again! Working with you both was an absolute joy from beginning to end, and I have to tell you I feel such gratitude for the connection we formed over the time we spent planning and day dreaming of your Wedding together! Thank you so much for celebrating with us, and congratulations again! P.S. You are CWG family now - so visit and check in often :) Sending you all our love!!!! Allie

We got married at the Barns on Nov 10, 2017. From the minute we first met with Mary Beth we knew it was the perfect place for us. All the staff were so friendly, responsive, accommodating, gave great suggestions, and ultimately made our dream wedding come true. I cannot say enough great things about the team and the venue. We received so many compliments about how nice and helpful the staff was. Allie was our day of coordinator and was like my little fairy godmother thinking 8 steps ahead of me and popping up at exact moments when I needed her. Overall, AMAZING!!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Hi Kate!! Thank you so much for your kind feedback! Functioning as your fairy godmother was entirely my pleasure and joy. Your Wedding was beautiful and I am so happy that I was able to help you celebrate! Please, don't be a stranger, visit us whenever you can! Congratulations again! Love, Allie

We planned our wedding from the West Coast, and our wedding planning was made simple, and FUN, because of the planning experience team at CT Wedding group.

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.

Hi Lauren! Thank you so much for this wonderful, touching review. I am personally so happy to read this and know how pleased you were! We can't wait to see your pictures, especially of your beautiful ceremony! Congratulations again and best of luck! -Cathy

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
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Hi Ladies! Thank you so much for the kind words!! We had such an amazing time celebrating with your family and friends! From your stunning decor to your chic bridal party, every detail was simply perfection! We loved every minute of planning with you and Heather, and wish you both a lifetime of love, happiness, and disagreeing on who bumped into whom when your love story began! - Jessica

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.
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
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
