The team at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake truly made our wedding day a dream come true. From the first phone call to schedule a time to view the venue, the team was friendly, upbeat, and incredibly accommodating. These themes carried through the next 11 months as they answered my countless questions and checked in on me every few months to make sure that our planning was on track. In January, they hosted a menu tasting for ourselves and several of the other couples who were also getting married in the summer. I fell in love with them all over again that night as they served us some of the best food I have ever had in my life. Fast forward 5 months and that same quality of food was served to our 115 guests. Our guests raved about the quality, quantity and diversity of options provided. Additionally, the servers paid close attention to both the bridal party and guests to make sure that nobody was missing out on a good meal. They made sure to have food in the bridal sweet pre-ceremony for the groomsmen and groom to eat, then restocked with a fresh round of top-notch apps for my ladies and I to snack on while my dress was being bustled. When it came time for dessert, we had a blazing donuts station set up on the back deck ~ this was a true crowd pleaser and everyone went wild for it! It was the true attention to detail and the fact that the wedding team truly poured passion into their work, making sure that our day was everything we wanted it to be, that makes me give them a 5 star review. I could write pages upon pages of great things about this venue and literally couldn't even find one bad thing to say about them. I love, love, love the experience that I had with Cathy, Allie, Mary Beth, Samantha, Ashley and everyone else from the CT Wedding Group and am forever grateful for the day that they gave us.

Our wedding day was absolutely amazing! Not only were we more than pleased, but so were our guests. The day was more than we could have ever imagined. The staff was so attentive, and put us and the wedding party at ease when it came to how the day would play out. I honestly have nothing but positive things to say about our day. From the venue decor, food, service, and overall experience, we were blown away. Two weeks later and we are still talking about how perfect it was!

My husband (Brett) and I had a better wedding than either of us could ever have dreamed or imagined. Throughout planning, often thought to ourselves "why does x cost so much money??". Well I will tell you - because it is worth it. Because the event planning team at the Pavilion is unparalleled, and they take care of so much more than you would ever have even thought of. While I originally thought that weddings were expensive and overpriced, I now realize I got a fantastic deal, and memories for a lifetime. I cannot say enough good things about the Pavilion, and the entire staff. The venue is beautiful, the food is fantastic, and the open bar signature drinks are delicious. What really sets this place apart from all the rest though is the staff. I could not have gotten through our wedding day without Lindsay. I am a DIY kind of person, and made a whole bunch of decorations (origami place card holders; manzanita branch centerpieces, you name it). Lindsay and staff set up EVERYTHING, packed it all back up, and put it in our cars at the end of the night. 100% stress free on our end. Lindsay is an event planning god, and always with a smile on her face. She was literally up the back of my dress trying to help figure out how to bustle it, when I was panicking before our first dance. The whole night, anywhere we turned- Lindsay was there (literally running at some points) - to get us drinks, make sure we ate, directing our vendors where to go and when. I also cannot count the number of random questions I emailed the girls at the Pavilion in the months before the wedding, which they ALWAYS got back to me within 10 minutes. We really had the most incredible day. It does go by quickly, but was almost completely stress free and we were able to enjoy ourselves and celebrate. The venue itself is perfect- it does not feel like a banquet hall as most weddings do, and yours is the only event that day. If only we could get married every year :)
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Rachel and Brett, Thank you SO MUCH for your incredibly kind words. I had such an amazing time celebrating your big day along side you both. The centerpieces you designed were so beautiful and creative and I LOVED the playing card favors, so fun just like the two of you! I wish you so much happiness as you continue your life together! Good luck with everything! Best, Lindsay

Wow. 5 stars is simply not enough to express how incredibly special that CT Wedding Group made our wedding. I cannot recommend the company or the Pavilion on Crystal Lake enough. Everything on our wedding day was absolutely perfect! The employees at CT Wedding Group are absolutely top notch from the the wedding planners and coordinators all the way down to the wait staff and receptionists; everyone is working their hardest to help you have the best wedding possible. But we do need to give an extra special shout out to Allie and Melissa who are two of the most genuine and kindest people that we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They helped us plan out the details of our wedding and both know the answer to just about any question that you have about your wedding because they have seen everything and encountered every possible hurdle. If you ever need advice or recommendations, a quick call to anyone at CT Wedding Group is guaranteed to give you an answer and they are always willing to help or talk to you about any questions or concerns. We have had so many guests at our wedding comment about how they loved our wedding, some of the comments have been about: amazing food (cannot stress how many people have said this to us), variety of cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres and stations, and most importantly the venue itself. The Pavilion was absolutely stunning on our wedding day. The ceremony and reception hall looked gorgeous and the lighting and other decorative options available contribute to this impressive location. We loved having our wedding at the Pavilion!
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Oh my goodness Lindsay, thank you so so much for your kind words! Melissa and I had the most wonderful time working with you, and from the bottom of our hearts thank you for choosing to celebrate with us at The Pavilion in Crystal Lake! We are wishing you all of the happiness in the world! - Allie

My husband and I were married at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake on April 20, 2018 and all I can say is WOW. The CT Wedding Group, led by Mary-Beth and Samantha, as well as our Day of Coordinator, Cathy, made our dream wedding a reality a few weeks ago. From our initial meeting with Jenna to look at the venue, we knew we were in good hands with the CT Wedding Group. Mary-Beth and Samantha were there every step of the way to answer any questions we had (and I had a lot), and always got back to us extremely quickly. I felt so at ease during the entire planning process because of this dynamic duo; they are true professionals in the industry. On our wedding day we had the pleasure of having Cathy as our Day of Coordinator, and not only did she ensure that our day went perfectly, she made me and my husband feel like family and would always check in on us during the entire day and night to make sure we had everything we needed. Cathy made sure everything was in check, everything was on time and that everyone was having fun. Because Cathy had learned that my husband and I met through CrossFit, she even made a cute CrossFit themed sign for the bar, those little extra touches that mean so much. I cannot say enough good things about the CT Wedding Group and the Pavilion on Crystal Lake. Our wedding day was everything I had ever dreamed of and more, and I have each one of them to thank for it. A beautiful venue, amazing food (our guests can't stop raving about the food) and the best team to help you every step of the way - it really is all you can ask for as a bride. Thank you Mary-Beth, Samantha, Cathy, Jenna and the entire CT Wedding Group team! Kate

On our wedding day I was greeted by Jessica and Cathy first thing on the morning at the lake house. They opened a hour earlier so that we would have enough time for our 3pm Wedding. She made sure that we were on s he duke the entire day while making sure myself and my now husband were happy and taken care of. Once pictures, the ceremony and more pictures were done we were left in the bridal suite to enjoy time together alone. She brought in a selection of all of the h’orderves and then upon request the ones we really liked. Everything after that went flawlessly. From intros, to dinner, cake, dancing and so on it was a wonderful day that we will always remember. Huge shout outs to Jess and Cathy for putting up with us and our BS as well as all of the staff the day of and Ashley for taking my numerous phone calls. Love you all!!!! My husband and I couldn’t decide what we wanted to do for our wedding but once we met with the CT wedding group, they made our decision easy.
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Jennifer! Thank you so much for this review- we are so happy knowing that your special day was flawless and wonderful!! Your wedding was such a fun party, I loved seeing everyone on the dance floor and many of them making use of the cigar station out back!! We wish you all the love and happiness, thank you for letting us be part of it! -Cathy, Jess & The Pavilion Team

From the very first email, to the meeting to view the venue, to the food tasting (seriously amazing) all the emails and to the day of. The entire staff at Pavillion was incredible. My husband wanted the pork chop which we didnt include with the guests food choice and the chef made it for him, and made me a sample plate of each choice so I didnt have to decide. We decided to do a pie cutting instead of cake for us and we did blazing donuts as dessert, which were a HIT! Our signature drinks were amazing. Our wedding was the first snowfall, the staff pulled off everything flawlessly. We had to move our cocktail table inside and I was a little worried about how it would look but it was wonderful. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was, we had a few vegan's in our guest list and I was told that they had never been to a wedding where there was such a wide variety of food that they were able to eat. Marybeth was amazing and Cathy was my day of coordinator and she was basically like family the first moment I met her. I am not even sure if anything went wrong at all because she handled EVERYTHING.

The venue is beyond charming and beautiful with the grounds always meticulously maintained. As soon as you pull up, you immediately feel nestled away in this perfect little piece of CT. Even in November, we were able to have our outdoor ceremony nestled amongst the pines and with most of the foliage gone we had beautiful views of the lake in the backdrop. The venue suggested the addition of a hot beverage station complete with cordials that our guests absolutely loved on a chilly November day. We rented the Lake Cottage at the Pavilion to spend the morning of in which was so perfect – hair and makeup was a breeze with great natural lighting and all the space you could possibly need. Before the ceremony, Allie was right by my side to help fix my veil and my dress before I made my walk down the aisle. Afterwards, thanks to Allie our favorite drinks were in hand as we exited to take our photos while a personal attendant brought our families and bridal party drinks and food by the lake. Our day-of coordinator was Allie (who is an absolute gift) and she took care of absolutely every little thing on our day. She went above and beyond what we ever could have expected and it was such a relief to have someone there who was really focused and tuned into us (the bride and groom). She pulled together all of our accumulated décor and supplemented with pieces from the venue to transform the Pavilion into our dream wedding. The food, the service, the bartenders, the wait staff were all best in class. Everyone still to this day comments on the service and how amazing the food was. The pie bar was such a hit as well as the warm pretzel station. A very special thank you to Allie, Samantha, Mary Beth and Melissa for all the extra attention on the days leading to and the day of our wedding. My husband and I can’t wait to be a guest at any of CT Wedding Group’s beautiful venues, but especially the Pavilion. Thank you so much for helping us have the wedding of our dreams!
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Oh my gosh, Gina!!! I cannot thank you enough for your kind words and wonderful feedback! Our team enjoyed every minute of planning with you and Melissa and I had so much fun executing your (breathtaking) vision on the day of your wedding! Every detail, from your perfectly tousled ivory linens lining each farm table, to your touches of mercury glass and botanical table-scapes - FLAWLESS. Thank you so much for inviting our team to help you celebrate your day! Congratulations again! Love, Allie

Our wedding day was hands down PERFECT! Any sort of mishap that occurred was handled swiftly, professionally and discreetly by the amazing Allie and the staff. Everyone raved about how awesome the staff was and how beautiful everything was. I never worried or stressed about one thing. Allie was awesome, amazing and fantastic. She put my moms mind at ease about the decor, the table arrangements, and everything else, so she was able to fully enjoy the wedding morning, and the reception. She made sure that both Steve and I were having an amazing time and made sure that whatever we needed was there when we needed it. She truly is a gem! Everything was perfect, from the light, the decor, the food, and the staff. I cannot say one negative thing about the Connecticut Wedding Group!From our first time walking into the Pavilion and meeting with Mary Beth, we knew we were in good hands. The pavilion was the only venue I saw. And it was the only one I needed to see. I knew we were going to be taken care of, but I didn’t realize how important the Wedding Planning Group would be to me! Every crazy question, concern, dilemma, or request I made, the girls that worked with me were amazing. They responded to my emails ASAP and we’re more than helpful. They put my mind at ease every step of the way. I always knew what I needed to do because of the emails they sent me and the constant contact they kept with me. They are all awesome!
