I don’t even know where to start with how I feel about my experience with The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. I can honestly say that without the Connecticut Wedding Group (the hosts of the Barns), and particularly my wedding coordinator Mary Beth, I probably would have had a mental break down from stress lol!
From the second we signed the contract and secured our date, until the wedding, The Connecticut Wedding Group was by my side, answering questions, offering suggestions, and making my life a whole lot easier.
And the venue? We’ll I think that speaks for itself. I saw the pictures online and assumed I could never afford it (my first mistake). Then I thought “it can’t actually look like that in person” (my second mistake). We walked in, and it was EXACTLY what it looks like online. In fact, it is even PRETTIER in person if that is possible. And, after sitting down with them to go over the details, we realized while it was on the higher side of our price range, it was absolutely affordable. After working with them, I’d say it was a STEAL based on how much we actually got.
The food was AMAZING. They let us go to both tastings (their menu’s range by season) and allowed me to put together the buffet of my dreams, all while being sensitive to my food allergies.
While most people miss their cocktail hours due to photo’s, they brought our cocktail hour to us by making sure we had plenty to eat, and a never ending supply of drinks.
By the end of the night, every person close to me knew about Mary Beth and what an asset she was. In fact, any time someone had a question, someone else would chime in with “I bet Mary Beth knows!” (Mary Beth, if you are reading this, I’m pretty sure my family would adopt you now if given the opportunity LOL).
I couldn’t have DREAMED up a better wedding day. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests and every picture I’ve seen trickle in on Facebook so far only further confirms why we made the decision we did.
If you are thinking of booking the Barns, or any of their venues, get on the phone and call NOW. Secure your date and focus your stress elsewhere! 🙂
