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!

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!!

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 itself is absolutely beautiful. Very rustic, clean, and private. CT Wedding Group was amazing. Cathy and Nicole were phenomenal on the wedding day. All of our guests commented on how outstanding the services were, everyone from the coordinators to the servers to the chef were wonderful, friendly and went above and beyond. The food was amazing! Everyone had a great time and are still raving about how amazing our wedding was! Cathy, our day -of coordinator, was great, organized, very on top of everything and kept us on track so we did not have to worry about anything but enjoying our day! Thank you so much for a truly perfect and magical wedding day.

As soon as we were engaged, I looked at venues right away. I kept seeing "ct wedding group" and tried avoiding them because I did not want to go with a venue that seemed more like a company. OH BOY was I WRONG! The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was the first and last venue we looked at. We were hooked! The people there (shout out to you Samantha!!) are incredible. Every single person we met had a huge smile on their faces. They treated us like family. The venue itself is stunning. You get the rusticness with the woods and the wood inside the venue and then you get the lake front too with a beach! Its secluded so no one can just pop in and watch you get married. And the food.... WOW. I wish they had their own resturant. I would be there all the time. They give couples a special date night where we were able to try all the food, appetizers, late night food selection, desserts and the drinks. We left feeling so full. We cannot, nor can our guests, get over how amazing the food was. During the wedding my husband and I were never without a drink. I would have a millerlite in hand, get pulled somewhere by a guest, put my beer down and lose it! Then within seconds all of a sudden I would have another beer in hand. They are wizards there! We had our ceremony there as well and it was perfect. Everything was perfect. They answered all of my questions very quickly and even made suggestions when I needed them! They were so amazing that they made me want to work there! I will ALWAYS recommend ct wedding group. My guests keep telling me it was the best wedding they have ever been too. Thank you so much ct wedding group and staff, you all are the best!!!!

Mr. & Mrs. Voelker! I have just the biggest smile on my face reading this! You both a so incredibly sweet and I can not thank you enough for your kind words. I am so glad you both are a part of our CT Wedding Group Family! We truly had the best time helping you and your loved ones celebrate. I still can't get over how amazing your father daughter dance was and how adorable your toasting Beer Steins were. I can not wait to see your beautiful photos and relive your wedding day over again! Congratulations again to you both!! Best Always, Samantha

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.

Kristen & Matt! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this! It was our pleasure to be part of it and help make your vision become reality- I still laugh thinking about how much fun your cake cutting was, you two know how to have fun! I loved your decor (What a talented family!) and the calla lilies in your bouquets- your pictures came out GORGEOUS! Best Wishes, Cathy & The CT Wedding Group Team

My husband and I had a FANTASTIC experience working with CT Wedding Group! We chose the Pavilion on Crystal Lake as our venue after falling in love with the gorgeous natural scenery and romantic rustic vibe of the Pavilion. From beginning to end, Mary-Beth, Samantha, and our day-of coordinator Lindsay were right by our side with helpful advice, creative ideas, quick responses, and ongoing positivity/reassurance that everything would come together for our big day. The wedding planning process can be so stressful, but having the crew at CT Wedding Group to consult with during the entirety of our planning process put our minds at ease and made the process much more enjoyable. The food at our wedding was absolutely delicious! Our guests raved about the tasty, unique, and beautifully displayed farmer's table, hors d'oeuvres, plated meals, and blazing donuts station (which we highly recommend). The lighting decor options can be pricey, but they are SO worth the cost. The lighting gives the venue a magical feel, and everyone used the Garden Wall as a whimsical photo backdrop. The staff at CT Wedding Group are extremely professional and responsive to the needs of the wedding party as well as the guests--including the chef, waitstaff, bar staff, and coordinators. Lindsay and the team were extremely flexible on the day of our wedding when a decision needed to be made as to whether or not we would hold our ceremony outside or inside with bad weather approaching. Thanks to the flexibility of CT Wedding Group, we were able to have our dream wedding outside in the grove of pine trees overlooking the lake, just as we had always envisioned. We were blown away by how smooth everything went the day of the wedding even after we cancelled our rehearsal the day before. You are in the best hands with CT Wedding Group, look no further! Looking back now, we would not have changed a thing. Thank you to CT Wedding Group for bringing our wedding vision to life!

Brooke & Matt, Thank you so much for your wonderful review!! I still cannot believe how perfectly your outside ceremony went before it began to rain, it was meant to be! It was an absolute blast celebrating with you both. I wish you both all of the love and happiness in your life together! Congratulations! Best, Lindsay

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!

Our wedding day with CT Wedding Group at The Pavilion on Crystal Lake was absolutely amazing. The highlights that we are STILL hearing about from our friends about include the venue itself, which is beautifully rustic with amazing views of the lake, and the delicious food. Everyone raved about how good the food was, and the highlight of the night - Late Night, “Walking” Tacos! Our planner Samantha was fantastic, and all our friends/vendors who interacted with her throughout the entire wedding planning process also shared with us on how great Sam was to work with as well. She was super responsive, and totally on her A-Plus game the whole night (and leading up to the wedding)! Everything from checking in on us while we were getting ready, to getting to-go boxes for all the leftover desserts was executed flawlessly and made for a stress free day where we could just enjoy and celebrate our wedding with our friends and family. CT Wedding Group was just so attentive and invested in our helping us plan our wedding and were genuinely excited in helping plan the details of our wedding. They were always super responsive to all our inquiries, no matter how big or small, and were so willing to work with us to make our wedding into exactly what we wanted it to be. We couldn't be more grateful to have had such an amazing team guiding us through the process of putting the entire event together. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a beautiful space, great food, and looking to work with a super organized and attentive team.

Grace & Michael! You two are so incredibly sweet! I can not thank you both enough for this beautiful review. Myself, and the entire team had a blast helping you both plan! And on the day of your wedding, helping you celebrate was no exception! From your card Taco (we still ALL talk about it!), to your 'Cinco De Marriage' sign, and of course The Walking Taco Station! Everything about your wedding was truly amazing and filled with so much love. I hope you both are enjoying every bit of your new adventure as Mr. & Mrs.! Congratulations again to you both!! Best Wishes Always, Samantha
