Where do I even begin with talking about Dolce Norwalk and the incredible Hazel Scudder? My husband and I booked our wedding almost 2 full years in advance from our wedding on June 10th 2017, and in that time this place became our second home. I remember the day that we first... Read More walked into Dolce and there was a welcome sign with our names on it right in the main entrance - and that was just a quick glimpse of the hospitality and personal touches you get when you have your wedding here. Hazel Scudder, the catering sales manager, is literally better than any wedding planner that you could pay for - and you get her with the venue (how can you beat that!?). From the beginning, she made sure everything for our day would be nothing short of perfect. I spent many afternoons with her in her office going over details, and getting hugs when I was stressed out! On the day of, she is there for the entire reception making sure that you and your guests are happy - and making sure you get to eat your meal (so important!). My guests are still raving about how amazing our wedding was, from Hazel checking in with them, to the food, and the staff taking drink orders directly from the tables so that they didn't have to wait in line at the open bar (had lots of positive feedback abut that part!) Another huge plus about the venue is that the guests have the option to stay there - so everyone was able to walk right to their rooms when the party was over, no transportation necessary! I would have my wedding here one thousand times over, and highly recommend it to any couple looking for the perfect CT wedding.

From the first day we met with her she made us feel welcomed with a sign in the lobby, through the... Read More night of our wedding when she stayed to make sure that everything was just right, we felt like part of the Dolce family. Hazel was always easy to get a hold of and quick with her responses to whatever questions we had for the 9 months or so we were working with her. The weekend of the wedding, we stayed the night before and the night of. The day before the wedding and even the day after Hazel checked in with us multiple times to make sure we had everything that we needed and that we were all okay. The day of the wedding we had nothing to worry about. Everything was in good hands. All we had to do was show up. Our bridal party was well informed about what they needed to be doing and where they needed to be and how things were going to going. Hazel and her staff are a well oiled machine that made our day run so smoothly, and on schedule. Aside for Hazel and her amazing staff, the grounds are beautiful. The food is amazing. Family and friends called the next day and for a few days after raving about the wedding saying its the best wedding they've been to. Many people couldn't believe the amount of food that they had, some not having room for their dinner after the cocktail hour which they LOVED. Another plus is the rooms on site so people can crash and not have to drive - great especially if they take advantage of the after party at the bar just steps away from the reception when the wedding is over so your party can last for just a few more hours! Overall not enough words to describe this amazing place and the wonderful Hazel! Not only did we have a fantastic wedding and would we pick this place again but we now feel as if we are part of the Dolce wedding family! Truly a different kind of place with wonderful people . We were so spoiled by our experience here!

Our wedding was one for the ages and we couldn't have had it all without such a stellar staff. Hazel Scudder was our event coordinator. Meeting her when touring the facility was what made up our minds about having Dolce host the festivites. She kept us calm throughout the... Read More entire planning process, gave us sound and professional advice on multiple occasions and, on the big day, kept everything moving without a hitch. Dolce is a well oiled machine! I went kind of nuts with the decor and made over 100 paper star lanterns to hang over the dance floor, something the staff had not quite encountered before. It was GORGEOUS. Beyond gorgeous. A huge thank you to the set up crew! We arrived at Dolce the afternoon before; we had the entire weekend planned there, rehearsal dinner on. Once we got there, got our bags in the room, we were able to relax and follow Hazel's cues. It was truly seemless. The outdoor ceremony under the "Wedding Tree" was pristine, the sunset right behind us, the band rocked and sounded great in the ballroom, the food was delicious and served without flaw, the outdoor patio was romantic and comfortable with outdoor heaters, and the night before I got married I got to relax with a calming dip in their heated indoor pool. I didn't want to leave! We didn't have to worry about clean up and when we were ready, all our goodies were ready and waiting in Hazel's office for us to pick up. I cannot recommend Dolce highly enough. Genuinely and sincerely in awe of just how magical and perfect it all was. THANK YOU DOLCE! THANK YOU HAZEL & CREW!!

After touring Dolce with Hazel, I knew this would be where I would celebrate the best day of my life alongside my family and friends. From the beginning, Hazel was knowledgeable and always available to answer each and every one of my many questions in a prompt and positive way.... Read More We were fortunate enough to arrive in Norwalk on a Friday and stay until Sunday, as we knew the celebration would be a weekend event. The on-site spacious hotel rooms, bar and restaurant were very convenient for all guests to access as well as the many amenities offered. I was pleasantly surprised when we were invited down for a food tasting as I thought we would get small plates to taste, when actually we were all served full size dinner entrees so that we would experience what our guests would experience the night of our wedding. After the tasting, the chef came out to personalize the menu with us and make any changes that we requested. On the day of the wedding, Hazel ensured that everything ran on schedule and worked alongside our wedding planner to attend to each and every one of our needs. There plentiful and friendly waitstaff ensured that all guests would be served each course at the same time. I can not say enough great things about my experience with Hazel at Dolce, and neither can my guests as they still share their fond memories of there time at Dolce. I look forward to returning to Dolce as an alumni bride! Thank you Hazel :)

Dolce Norwalk is the perfect package! Hazel: First of all, the catering sales manager, Hazel, is exactly who you want coordinating any huge event. She is kind, fun, organized, clear, and both opinionated and totally flexible. I was not the easiest Bride, as I have produced... Read More large events myself, and am a picky creative type with a SUPER type-a personality. I'm sure Hazel's life would have been easier if I wasn't quite so needy and quirky, but you'd never know it. She has a way of making you feel like the only bride that ever existed- special, heard, and worth her time. She was open to my offbeat ideas, but also provided gentle guidance when I needed it. She jumped on board with our ideas, and often came up with her own contributions and thoughts. It was a very collaborative experience. But more importantly than all of that, she was always quick to respond, thorough as anyone I've ever worked with, and very clear. I always felt that she had our best interest at heart, and never felt like I was in a business deal, or part of the mammoth Wedding machine. She provides top notch, big ticket service with a welcoming, warm, and 'family business' attitude. She is absolutely half the reason to choose Dolce for your wedding. I could go on and on and on about Hazel! The Staff: Hazel and the staff made allowances for us that I still can't even wrap my head around. For such a busy and highly sought after venue, I expected efficient but "business as usual" attitudes from the staff. After all, we're one out of how many weddings per year? But when the time came to actually load into the hotel and set up for the wedding, I and my family were completely floored by the service of everyone at Dolce. From the front desk to the wait staff to the groundskeepers, everyone was so incredibly nice, sincere and helpful. I have never experienced such a workplace of happy, , kind, wonderful people. They set the tone for the entire weekend by making everyone feel welcome, cared for, and like part of the Dolce family. The Venue (Ceremony): I loved everything about Dolce, but I ultimately chose it for the "Wedding Tree" outdoor ceremony space. It is a peaceful, stunning location for any ceremony. Of all the many things I micromanaged on the wedding weekend, the ceremony set up and decor was not one. The staff had everyone set up perfectly and ready to go long before my guests arrived, and it was a magical site when set up. The Venue (Reception): The traditional ballroom is as serviceable and lovely as any well cared for venue may be, but what makes Dolce really stand out is the cocktail area and patio. Before moving into that beautiful reception hall for dinner and dancing, the guests are treated to a contemporary rustic-feeling bar area with farm tables, big comfy chairs, barn doors, a fireplace, and huge glass doors and windows overlooking the wedding tree location. The bar area doors open to a magical raised patio that matches the length of the interior, with comfortable seating and tables. The patio then opens to a lovely field with Adirondack chairs, and even a fire pit. There is even a baby grand piano you may use. All of that combined with their policy that the hotel is not open to the public (only for events on the grounds), makes you feel like your own private castle. The Food: Outstanding. I would go back to eat there again any time. I recommend especially the raspberry-brie filo dough, Statler chicken and the ice cream sundae bar!

Read More Hazel came to the rescue. Her calm, but bubbly attitude, helped us with this difficult transition. Upon first meeting us, she gave us all a big reassuring hug, saying that everything would be okay. And it was! Hazel took care of everything and made sure that we had our dream wedding.

With the leaves all turning colors, the photos were incredible. The entire reception staff was wonderful. Hazel was able to successfully bustle the complicated wedding dress while at the same time making sure we ate our hors d'oeuvres during the cocktail hour. She also ran the event like the captain of a ship, making sure everything ran on schedule and that we both ate our meals. The only negative that we can think of was that we asked the staff to save the extra party favors (Bridgewater chocolates), but those favors were misplaced and were not packed with the neatly packaged decorations leftover from the wedding. We also suggest that Dolce invest in a new mattress in the bridal suite. Overall, it was a truly amazing experience and we couldn't have been happier.

Our experience with Dolce Norwalk was overall good. Our guests had a blast are still talking about our reception; we couldn't ask for better feedback. But there were several bumps that called for a less-than-stellar review. The good: -The DN grounds are vast and beautiful,... Read More peacefully tucked away in a residential area. DN is a hotel, so guests could drink and not have to worry about alternate transportation to another site after the reception. -Hazel was terrific at keeping the reception on schedule, and she designed the timeline so that food was plentiful throughout the evening (e.g. instead of doing toasts with guests at their tables with nothing to eat, salads were brought out just prior). Don't worry about booking a separate day-of coordinator here. -Although other groups can be present, only 1 wedding takes place at a time. We had no idea that another group was there until we saw them at the bar after the reception. -Guests raved about the quantity AND quality of the food--as did we! And Hazel will make sure that you (the bride and groom) get to eat. -Complimentary entrée tasting! We were so full after trying generous portions of 4 options. You can also sample some of the hors d'oeuvres at DN bridal expos. -The room rate was very reasonable for lower Fairfield County--less than $200 a night with all taxes included. The bad: -Communication left much to be desired. Hazel's response time to emails was highly inconsistent. On several occasions I had to wait well over a week or 2--and I had to follow up as well in a few instances to even get a response. After reading rave reviews about how responsive Hazel is, I expected better. To be fair, at one point Hazel was very ill and out of the office for several days, but there was no real justification for the other delays. We were not told of renovations that DN was undergoing until they were well underway--and we found out via DN's Facebook page. In the end it wasn't an issue, but something this big should have been shared with us before we even signed our contract. We reserved an 8-passenger van to transport our bridesmaids and groomsmen to the ceremony and back. Hazel notified ONLY me less than 3 hours prior to the ceremony that the van was "in the shop" and that we'd have to use the 6-passenger van. I relayed the message to my parents, who agreed to take one of the party members with them after the ceremony. Because no one bothered to tell the groom (which I had assumed Hazel would do--my fault for believing this), his parents were unaware of this snag, and the best man was left behind at the church after the ceremony. We missed close to a half hour of photography time AND the entire cocktail hour because of this. My husband and I booked post-reception karaoke at DN for our guests, which was to start shortly after 11 PM. At 9 PM, Hazel came to us (while we were enjoying our meal) to tell us that the karaoke machine was "broken". No proposed solution, just that she was "very sorry". I firmly told Hazel--twice--that we would not deny our guests what we promised them and that she needed to find a solution to this problem. Thankfully our DJ offered to stay on to provide music for karaoke. Had it not been for him, our post-reception bash would have been ruined. If it weren’t for the subpar communication (and subsequent avoidable van and karaoke situations--you'd think these would have been checked BEFORE the wedding day), Dolce Norwalk would have our full recommendation.

Following the ceremony, my husband (still getting used to that) and I decided we would like to have a few moments to ourselves rather than join the cocktail hour, but Hazel and her team ensured we had some of our options to snack on. All of our guests were thoroughly impressed with the offering and overall quality of the entire cocktail hour. Then came the reception. Wow. The menu we had to choose from was incredible. The tasting, even better. The dish being served at your own wedding, words can not express. Throughout the entire time, from ceremony through reception, the entire team at Dolce was there serving us hand and foot. Not once did we ever have to ask for anything, they asked us before we even knew we may want something. Now a big part of the wedding that everyone warns you about: you will not eat at your own wedding. WRONG! Hazel and team ensured that we had plenty of opportunities to enjoy our meal. They let us know when the dishes were coming up so we could pause thanking our guests, grab some bites, and resume thanking. We not only got to every guest to thank for joining us, but got to eat every single plate that was served. I must admit, I have a weak spot for champagne, which my flute was never empty (it helps me dance better). Did I mention that the florist, DJ, and photographer have all done numerous events at Dolce, so they were friendly with the staff and knew every single caveat with Dolce in planning the setup, photos, etc.? Yes, I know that my wedding day would be "perfect" anywhere, but I really feel that the team at Dolce went above and beyond to ensure that every single thing with my wedding day was going to be perfect. Everything. They ensured we had a timetable so everything would work out. They checked on my husband to be and his groomsmen to make sure they were actually getting ready and not goofing around. They made me feel like I was part of their family. That is HUGE. How often do we wish that we had a personal experience with any service we have? We had that. We were part of their family, and they let us know it. If we weren't happy, they weren't going to be happy. I wasn't happy, I was on cloud nine. I can usually think of a few things that I could change to make something better, but Dolce ensured that nothing could have possibly been changed to make it any better. My wedding at Dolce was perfect, in every sense of the word.
