We had heard good things about the food from people who had attended weddings at The Barns and instantly fell in love with the venue when we went to see it. But it really exceeded our expectations. The food was unreal - not "banquet hall" quality like most weddings, but really, really yummy and modern food (chicken parm skewers as an app! and the herb-roasted stuffed chicken was a huge portion, super moist, and flavorful). Guests raved about the wide selection at the bar. The service was excellent and the staff was attentive throughout the night. The staff does an excellent job of personalizing your wedding with the decor you provide (I would recommend you type up an inventory of what you bring to make sure you get everything back - I'm still missing a few things). And leading up to the event the staff was always readily available via phone or email to answer all of my last minute questions.

There are no words to describe the outstanding experience I had at The Barns at Wesleyan Hills. From the moment we met with CT Wedding Group we were floored. The entire staff is professional, friendly, knowledgeable and SUPER tentative. Our wedding was so amazing!! The food was outstanding, the bartenders and food servers were friendly and did an amazing job. We worked directly with Mary Beth and I honestly can't say enough good things about her. I did not worry about one thing the entire day. Our guests are still raving about the food and service. You really can't beat it!! I wish I could give them more than 5 stars.

My husband and I were recently married at The Barns, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue. We worked closely with Mary-Beth who was truly a gift sent from above - she always quickly answered our questions, anticipated our needs, and made sure that our wedding day was true perfection. The rest of the staff was also amazing - we have never experienced a nicer set of individuals so in tune to their guests' needs. The venue, of course, is to die for ... amazingly beautiful both inside and out. It was everything we wanted, aesthetically, and the amazing service (and food too - YUM!) really amazed us. It amazed our guests as well! We couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else and we will always be incredible thankful for the CT Wedding Group. They made us feel incredibly special and like we were the only couple that mattered - on your Big Day, what else can you ask for? The Barns team ... we LOVE you!

Traci and the staff at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills were AMAZING!! We couldn't have asked for a better planned and staffed wedding. Everything went better than planned and I did not have to worry at all, thanks to Traci. The staff was extremely accommodating and guests were commenting all night and even after the wedding about how delicious the food was and how great the service was. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and thanks to the staff at the Barns at Wesleyan Hills, they made it that much better!!

I can't say enough how amazing the staff at the Barns was throughout our entire wedding planning process! The day of the wedding the service was incredible from every single staff member. We got so many compliments not only on the quality of the food but on the staff as well. I would recommend this venue for anyone who is looking for a truly high quality wedding with amazing picture opportunities.
