The Barn at Wesleyan Hills merges a beautiful natural setting and low-key farm-like features and well-run event planning services. This means couples get the best of both worlds when they book with this venue, one of three, owned by Connecticut Wedding Group.
An outdoor ceremony space is available next to the cattail-lined pond. True to its name, there are multiple barns. The smallest one provides a private space for the bridal party to get ready in comfort. The Middle Barn serves as a fantastic cocktail lounge. Keep it open during the reception for guests taking a break from dancing to rest their feet and chat. The Big Barn give you endless options for customization. From adding hanging drapery from the beams, to classic café lights, the space will shine no matter how simple or as complex as you make your décor.
The expert staff at the Barn at Wesleyan Hills will guide you through every step of the planning process. From décor suggestions and menu consultations to seating charts and day-of coordination. Tables, Chiavari chairs, and linens are all included.
The on-site catering provided by Connecticut Wedding Group has won rave reviews from brides and guests. The executive chef, Stephen Lisitano was awarded Connecticut Restaurant Association Chef of the Year in 2013. His seasonal menus incorporate fresh, farm to table ingredients presented in creative ways that will have your guests talking for months afterward.
You can rest assured that you will have extraordinary wedding photos at this venue as well. I love venues with water features, and this peaceful farm pond does not disappoint. The property also boasts graceful willow trees that land quiet energy and movement to your pictures. And as I mentioned before – there are big wide-open skies – welcoming you into your day of celebration and a new phase of life.
