I recently got married at Saint Clements Castle. The venue is amazing. More beautiful than you can imagine in person than from pictures online. The staff were unbelievable. The day was perfect, everything was on schedule and as planned. Judy was great while planning the event. I live in AZ so was planning this long distance. She always had fast email replies and answered all my questions. Kate and Justin were GREAT the day of the event. The day couldn't have been better, they were on top of everything and very attentive. The food was amazing as well as all the servers. All of my guests were very impressed with everything and kept complimenting the service and talking about how wonderful everything was.
This castle is absolutely gorgeous. Even though it is a higher price point and made the greatest hit to our budget, I absolutely do not regret the decision to chose St. Clements. For starters, the staff was amazingly attentive. We planned our wedding in Connecticut while living in Michigan. Our wedding coordinator, Pam, was amazingly helpful, and I can't imagine the headache this would have been without her help. The staff puts everything out for you. The only exception is anything you have a florist bringing and perhaps some ceremony decor. But, all the table numbers, the card box, the guest book, the favors, you name it, are taken from you during the final meeting and put out to your description on your big day. No mess, no stress. On the day of, the staff was again, wonderful. They carried trays of coffee and champagne up to the bridal suite for my girls and I while we got ready. After the ceremony, my husband and I decided to take a walk together to have just a little time for the two of us. The staff carried a tray of champagne and hors d'oeuvres out to us so we wouldn't be hungry. Everyone commented on how beautiful the site is. Depending on the room you chose, your ceremony is either in the sunken gardens, full of beautiful statues and hydrangeas and roses in bloom. Or, you may be on an expanse along the Connecticut River. The building is a gorgeous castle full of beautiful antiques. Chose St. Clements. You won't regret it.
I can't POSSIBLY say enough positive things about the Staff at Saint Clements Castle! These people are professionals! They obviously work extremely hard. There is nothing "generic or factory" about this wedding venue. It is like an absolute fairy tale. Our tour from Judy was so beautiful & informative. It was the only tour we had gone on. Judy had our date available & was so flexible with everything that we just couldn't walk out of there without booking, & we are SO glad we didn't! It was everything it had promised to be. First & foremost, the service was out of this world. Guests at our wedding actually made comments to me about how nice the servers were. You just never hear that! We had a personal server named Cieara who was adorable, & took great care of us throughout the night making sure our drinks were always full. She never once took away a plate on our table without asking if we were finished, even if we had walked away from it. These are things that should go without saying, but it goes a long way considering most places aren't that attentive. The food was delicious! Our guests loved it so much, some even mentioned they had ate so much during cocktail hour that they were almost stuffed at dinner time. So you can only imagine how good the hors d'oeuvres were. Huge portion sizes, I can't imagine that anyone was hungry leaving our wedding. Katelynn was our planner for the day (ceremony/reception). She was such a genuinely nice person. She made a point to wish us well at the end of the night & gave us a box with more cake to eat later, which was so sweet. She made sure everything ran smoothly & on time w/o sacrificing anything at all. Everything was just so beautiful & perfect, we could go honestly on and on!! It was a magical night. We are so grateful that we were able to have our very special day be held at such a truly amazing establishment. We have wonderful lifelong memories to cherish thanks to the Staff at Saint Clements Castle!!
Absolutely AMAZING!!!! I couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect wedding venue. They took such amazing care of my husband and I. The food was unbelievable. I got more compliments about the menu from my guests than I could possibly have imagined. From the very first visit up to the moment we left after the wedding, Saint Clements Castle was perfect. They unpacked and set up everything and then repacked and loaded it into my parents car at the end of the reception. They thought of everything and were there to take care of any issue that arose during the reception. They treated us like royalty and made our wedding unforgettable.
We couldn't have been happier with our venue! The food was amazing, and service was great. I didn't have a worry on my mind and everything went smoothly! Katelynn and Judy were absolutely wonderful, very helpful, professional and on top of everything. Whether Katelynn was helping fix my bussel for the third time or conducting a change of ceremony seconds before it began because of the torrential down pour she was nothing but sweet, dedicated and good at her job. The venue was more then we could have imagined!
We can't say enough about this beautiful venue. Our daughter's wedding was absolutely wonderful. We got so many compliments about the venue and its unique beauty. In addition, the wedding event planner we were assigned (Pam) was so responsive. We called her so many times to ask questions before the wedding. She was great at responding to emails as well. It was a magical day at a beautiful location. Enough said...
