We cannot say enough good things about the Connecticut Wedding Group and our customized, personal experience with them. Mary Beth, the Director of Wedding Planning, is an absolute dream to work with. She understands exactly what couples are going through and will walk you through each step of the process. She was prompt in every response and went above and beyond to answer all of our questions (and there were a lot of them!). Our day of coordinators were Cate and Jenna and what can we say? They are magic makers. They are both so personable and friendly that it made the wedding day a breeze. We were in lock step when it came to decisions on centerpieces, decorations, timelines, etc. They understood us and we, without any question or hesitation, trusted them! I was comfortable handing over the creative reigns (after all they are the professionals!). They made EVERYTHING fun. When we say EVERYTHING we mean it. Cate and Jenna both ensured that we had what we needed/requested. Right after the ceremony, we met in the bridal suite where signature drinks & all of our apps were waiting. I happened to spill a little on my dress (oops) and Cate was there, in a split second, to help me remove the stain! There was no stress... Cate & Jenna pulled us for introductions, for cake cutting, pictures, etc. Everything we said we wanted to do happened because of them. We ate our dinner together, we danced the night away, we ate blazing donuts from our dessert station and soft pretzels from the late night snack. We got to sneak away to the balcony and watch our guests enjoying the night... it was just so special. Even our guests made specific mention of both Cate and Jenna as well as the entire wait and bar staff. The service was out of this world, on point and super genuine. We can't thank the CT Wedding Group enough! We wish we could do it all over again! <3

Choosing the Barns was the best decision my husband and I made in the planning process. From day 1, they were super responsive and willing to suggest ideas and suggestions to help us create our version of a perfect day. If you're somebody that has a busy life and works 60-80 hour weeks, this is the place! I gave them a general idea of what I wanted and everything turned out beyond perfect. They have many additions that make planning easy, but I never felt pressured to spend more money when I didn't want to. And when we wanted to create our own dessert bar, Samantha was right on board! And fast forward to the day of the wedding, everything was above and beyond. The staff was amazing, the food was amazing, my husband and I always had a drink in our hands, and I did not have to worry about a THING. Worth every penny to not have the stress of doing all the little things. My friends and family could not stop raving about the cheese plate, dinner, drinks, and DJ (which is an exclusive partner for the Barns but also worth it)! Do it!

Sarah & Brady! Those were such kind words - I can not thank you both enough! It has truly been our pleasure to help you both plan your big day and to bring your vision to life on the day of. These photos are stunning, and just made my day reliving your wedding day! I am instantly taken back to Avett Brothers playing, warm cider donuts and chocolate chip cookies, and of course all the love & laughter that surrounded you both the entire day. I wish you both all the absolute best at Mr. & Mrs! Congratulations again to you both!! Love, Samantha and the CT Wedding Group Family

The Barns at the Wesleyan Hills is a couples dream! As soon as we walked onto the grounds we knew this was the place for us! My husband and I got married on April 28, 2018. Throughout the entire process, the staff were accommodating and organized. They checked in every step of the way and were always responsive and helpful with any troubleshooting. The final appointment meeting was so well planned, they had all our details and information. We brought all our wedding decorations and they were excited and helpful to display them! Everything looked beautiful! Ally and Cate are AMAZING!!!! From the day we met them, we knew that our wedding was going to be the best! They made sure everything went smoothly on our day and if it didn't we had no idea! They are wedding experts!! (Special shout out for packing all the leftovers especially the pretzels, there were a hit at the after party!!) The venue, food and service were impressive. Our family and friends are still talking about how awesome the night was! The food has some serious competition at other wedding! We want to go back for another event to enjoy everything again! We can not thank you enough for making our special day even more special than we could have imagined!!!!

Cate, myself, and our entire team truly enjoyed working with you both from the very beginning up until the very end of your momentous day, and we cannot wait to see some pictures when they come in! Sending you both so much love and well wishes! - Allie

You guys simply amaze me! For someone that is a control freak and worries about everything... I did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day! You all exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond for us! From the same details of reminding us to eat our food and brining is warm hot chocolate cause it was so cold outside. The food was amazing. Jenna was fabulous! She was so awesome! She must have bustled my dress a thousand times and did it with a smile each time and so pleasant. She reassured me each time so I didn’t have to worry! She always made sure there was food and drinks for us. I wish I could keep her in my pocket all the time! The place was decorated so beautiful and just how I pictured our wedding day to be. I was so sad at the end of the night I didn’t want to leave!!! I was so comfortable there. Also the girls that helped with my planning throughout the year were so awesome! I must have asked a thousand questions and they were so nice each time! I would highly suggest to anyone to go with Connecticut wedding group for their wedding day! They are simply amazing! Thank you all for your hard work and to make our wedding day so beautiful! We had an amazing day!

Alexandra and Chris! Thank you so much for your kind words! I am so happy I was able to be apart of your amazing day in even the slightest!

When we starting looking for wedding venues, we were worried about whether or not we'd find the right place for us...but after we toured The Barns and learned more about what it's like to work with the CT Wedding Group, we looked at each other and both knew that was where we'd get married, no question! We live out of state, but it was very easy to communicate with them by phone and email throughout the whole process. They were ready to answer all of our questions and always responded quickly. The day before the wedding was when I finally started getting a little stressed out, but as soon as we walked into our final meeting and met Cathy and Cate, all of my nerves disappeared. It was clear we were in good hands! The day went so smoothly! If there were any problems, I honestly wouldn't have had any idea because Cathy and Cate were so on top of things. We were able to truly enjoy our wedding day and have a great time with family and friends. We got married almost 2 months ago, and I'm still hearing from guests about how much fun they had, how beautiful the venue was, and how delicious the food was. Thanks to the whole CT Wedding Group crew, we had a perfect day that we'll never forget.
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Steph & Justin! Thank you SO much for this wonderful review. We are so happy to hear that we took all your stress away, and that you felt relaxed that day. I still talk about your beer bottle centerpieces with hops in them, we really LOVED your style and decor! Cheers to a Happy Marriage ;) -Cathy

I’m from Long Island and was dead set on wanting a venue with a rustic feel, but couldn’t find anything local to fit our needs. Thanks to the internet and websites like the knot and weddingwire, we came across the Barns. I fell in love with it from the pictures alone but didn’t want to get my hopes up - we didn’t know if they would have dates available or that we’d even be able to afford it. Leading up to our first visit, we communicated with Jessica whom was more then helpful answering any logistical questions we had. When we did finally make the trip up to check it out I knew I was in trouble..I fell in love immediately (as did my now husband) and we ended up booking on the spot. Wedding planning from another state is not normally easy, but with the help of Samantha and Mary-Beth it was definitely a breeze. They were so helpful and responsive to any and all emails I sent no matter the time of day - it truly took a load off my shoulders and made things less stressful.Ashley was wonderful when it came to any financial questions we had and kept us on schedule with our payments. We had Jenna and Cate as day of coordinators, and they were beyond amazing and brought all our dreams and visions for the wedding to life. They were beyond attentive and accommodating. The food was incredible, and our guests cannot stop talking about it as well as the decor. Possibly more importantly, our guests were blown away by the incredible service from the staff - we had a decent amount with dietary restrictions or allergies and they said the staff was constantly checking in with them and making sure they had everything they needed all night. I cannot say enough good things about the people associated with The Barns and the Barns itself, but they gave us and our families the perfect day on 4/8/18 to always remember. We had no prior ties with anything in CT and no one understood why we picked there for a wedding, but after seeing it all come together they understood!
The Barns at Wesleyan Hills responded with the following comments:
Hi Kathleen and Steven! Thank you so much for the glowing review! Cate and I had such an amazing time at your wedding! All of your handmade details (including your dads wood slab centerpieces!) were stunning! Decorating your Farmers Market Cocktail Hour was such a blast as well- you had a beautiful vision! Please send us photos! All the best, Jenna, Cate, and The Barns Family!

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
