The Pavilion and CT Wedding Group were incredible. The Pavilion is gorgeous, the atmosphere there is warm and inviting and our guests loved it. The food is delicious and the service was outstanding! Our guests raved over how delicious everything was. CT Wedding Group was on top of every detail and made the planning process incredibly simple and straight forward (something I really appreciated!) We had a day of coordinator, Jenna, who was just the best. She took care of my husband and me from the start, making sure we had drinks and actually got to eat dinner. She did a wonderful job relieving everyone's stress that day, especially my mom's which was huge. The wedding went off without a hitch thanks to her and the entire staff! We couldn't be happier with our venue and our night, it was flawless. If you're looking for true professionals in the wedding industry, I can't recommend The Pavilion or CT Wedding Group enough!

Hi Stephanie and Mike! Thank you so much for such kind words! I absolutely LOVED decorating your Whimsical Themed wedding- it really brought the tree house style of the Pavilion to life! I keep raving about how adorable your Card House was! Give Tucker man a big kiss from us! And send us along photos when you get them! All the Best, Jenna

We had such an amazing experience at the Pavilion at Crystal Lake. The staff, food and venue overall was amazing! My husband was set on them because they focus on one wedding at a time at their venue. You can tell that this group knows their stuff. Our Wedding Planners Allie and Jenna were amazing!!! Allie had our ceremony down to the T and knew placing and provided ques for the wedding party. If you're considering using this venue you have to use Power Stations as your DJ! They also did an amazing job it was like they were just part of the venue! My guests haven't stopped talking about the amazing food and definitely get the Blazing Donuts! We couldn't have asked for a better group of people to help us navigate our day they made every moment feel amazing and special. Thank you CT Wedding Group Team!!
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much for your kind words, Ed!! Your wedding was so perfect, and I feel so incredibly lucky that I was there to help you celebrate. Every single touch and detail you provided carried your vision seamlessly throughout the venue, it was honestly just flawless. We're all sending you massive hugs and wishing you a lifetime of joy together! P.S. Jenna and I are forever cherishing (and fighting over) your BIC pen collection and they will continue to be a lovely reminder of how much we love you and Scott Love, Allie

The whole team was helpful and easy to work with. On the day of Lindsey was on the ball, keeping everything moving as it should, seeing that the whole evening was just magical for everyone. All the guests raved about the food, the space, and the staff. All in all it was the wedding I dreamed about, such a magical day. Thank you!

cannot even describe the stress free day that Allie, our wedding coordinator, maganage to create. They really go above and beyond there to ensure that you are enjoying your day. There was never a moment where I was looking around for food or a drink that someone wasnt there to meet my request. On top of that my husband and I had some unique requests for the flow of the night and Allie worked with all of our vendors to make it happen flawlessly. Our parents and guests are still talking about the girl with the headset on marching around making things happen! Not only were Allie and her team amazing but the venue was spectacular as well. So many beautiful settings for pictures! Picky parents and guest are still raving about all of the food and drinks and let me say the blazing donut station is something our friends will never forget or stop talking about! Did I mention how great Allie was?! A side note is that they also made the planning process very easy, again, no stress for either my husband or me. From planning to the entire flow of the day we just sat back and enjoyed our wedding as if we were guests! Highly recommend the CT wedding group and any of their venues!

Our wedding at The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was INCREDIBLE! I am getting emotional typing this review just remembering how much fun we and our guests had! The staff is top notch, and the quality of every detail is top notch. We have only the highest praises! Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had been to!
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review, Rachel! We had such a blast working with you, and we are so happy to hear the feeling was mutual. Every single detail, from your Jazz Trio playing out on the patio during cocktail hour - up through your Ice Cream Bar (What a HIT!) after dinner was perfectly thought out and exactly what your guests wanted; nothing makes me happier than seeing the look on your guests faces when they lit up from the surprises you had in store! Congratulations again, Rachel - Sending you all of our love! - Allie & CT Wedding Group

If you want a beautiful and stress-free wedding day, Pavilion on Crystal Lake & CT Wedding Group are absolutely the way to go! What really put Pavilion over the top on our extensive venue search (aside from the idyllic and serene ceremony site) was how clear it was that we would really feel like a priority and be taken care of and supported by their team throughout our entire wedding planning process. Some catches to the venue - you really must go through them for all food and beverage, and large scale decorations, plus Powerstation Events has a monopoly on their sound system (other DJs & bands may bring their own, but they can't hook into the outdoor speakers, or into the discrete, tree-mounted sound system at the ceremony spot). So, if a very specific type of food, decor, or music is important to you and isn't offered by them, this may not be the place for you, but these things were not deterrents for us. If anything, it made some decisions easier for us. Throughout wedding planning many people will tell you to plan for things to go wrong on the day, so I honestly felt like I was in a dream and needed to keep pinching myself due to how exquisite everything was on our wedding day, and how seamlessly the day flowed from one thing to the next, in large part thanks to the day-of coordinator we were assigned by CT wedding group - Jenna. She was such a calming influence on our day, and we truly never felt like we needed to worry about a thing. I was blown away by how beautifully she displayed all of our family photos and decorations to ensure the space was extra lovely and extra "us" for our celebration. The planning team seems to have an answer for every possible question, and their attention to detail is astounding. On top of that, the food was delicious and they went the extra mile to make sure all of our guests with dietary restrictions ate full and delicious meals alongside everyone else. You won't regret having your wedding here!!

Kelly and Dan! Thank you so much for your kind words! Working with you all was such a pleasure- your wedding vision truly came to life and I am so glad to have been apart of it! Give the kitties smooches from all of us here- we can’t wait to see your photos from the wedding! Cheers!! - Jenna

Where do we even begin? We cannot thank everyone enough. From our first visit to our actual wedding day on 7/6/18, the Pavilion and CT Wedding Group were examples of the highest level of customer service and perfection. We knew upon viewing the grounds that we had to get married in the pines, and the view of the lake was unbeatable. However, what we didn't know was that we were also booking with an incredible team that would be with us every step of the wedding planning way! They answered every single email promptly, gave us countless suggestions, and even called when they had an idea for us. I cannot talk about our wedding day without talking about the angel that is Allie, our day of coordinator. From the moment we met her we knew we would be in amazing hands and our guests are still talking about how incredible she was. She calmed all our nerves, talked us through everything, kept the day running smoothly, and always made sure we had a drink in hand! The food was not only the best I've had at a wedding, but the best food I've ever had out. Our guests were asking if the chef had a restaurant they could eat at! We chose the corn chowder, summer salad, filet, salmon, and honey dijon chicken, and each one was better than the last! The actual Pavilion itself the day of was STUNNING! I know it has a rustic vibe when you first view it (which we loved!) but I couldn't believe how soft and romantic it was able to be based on the decorations and the vibe we told them we were going for. The CT Wedding Group is NOT a wedding factory, they care deeply about each individual couple and deliver the highest quality of results. It has been two weeks and we are still getting texts saying "Literally Best Wedding Ever!" We know that our venue, the food, and the staff are to thank for that. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Book with the CT Wedding Group and The Pavilion on Crystal Lake if you want a perfect, positive, and unforgettable wedding experience!

Oh my goodness, Jana - YOU are the angel and I am so sad that your wedding has come and gone! Every minute working with you was an absolute dream, and I am thrilled to hear that you had such a wonderful time celebrating with us! We cannot wait to see all of your pictures and gush over how perfect everything was all over again :) All our love, Allie & CWG Family

Words cannot describe how perfect our wedding was at The Pavillion on Crystal Lake. Allie was absolutely amazing and catered to all of our needs. We did not have any specific ideas for how we wanted our decorations set up, when we walked into the venue for the first time, we were shocked at how perfectly everything looked! We wanted a wedding where everyone could celebrate with us and wanted as much time time for “the party” and Allie certainly made that possible where we even ended up with an extra half our out of the schedule! They day went so smoothly and our guests are still raving about the food! There was not one part of the day he had to worry about. We couldn’t have picked a better venue and asked for a more amazing day!
The Pavilion on Crystal Lake responded with the following comments:
Oh my gosh Carlee thank you so much for your kind words! Such an incredible party, you and your guests definitely know how to keep a dance floor packed! I am so thrilled to hear what an amazing time you and your guests had, this is truly everything we aim for and nothing makes us happier :) Congratulations again!!! Love, Allie

I couldn't be happier! Our wedding was a dream. I could not imagine how the day would have gone without our wedding planner Lindsay, who was provided at no additional cost when booking this venue. The venue also provides a team of planners to help from the time you book all the way up to the big day. They were more than happy to accommodate all of my wishes in order to make the event as sustainable and zero-waste as possible. The site is just spectacular. Guests still can't stop raving about how lovely it was, and the ability to be able to be on the dance floor and party, or head to the beach or the deck to relax. My every need was taken care of before I even knew what I needed. I think it's impossible to have a rocky day with the CT Wedding Group team handling your wedding. Seamless, gorgeous, easy, and fun, are the words that come to mind when I think of our wedding. Wedding date 8/4/18
