Our wedding events were held at The Foxwoods Resort Casino during Thanksgiving Weekend on November 25 - November 26, 2016. The weekend was truly a dream come true. Foxwoods was my dream venue and once the love of my life popped the question, the first call made was to Foxwoods. We were immediately introduced to Sue Evarts, catering sales manager. She is professional, prompt, extremely sweet and kind, and for a bride a true gift to have alongside you on the big day. Words cannot describe how great it was to work with her. Together with my fiancé, parents, and vendors I was able to pull off a huge wedding (4 events long) in less than five months. On Friday, Nov 25th our first event was held at the Pequot Museum. On Saturday, Nov 26th both events were held in The Fox Tower: the Wedding Ceremony was held in The Celebrity Ballroom and in the evening we had our Wedding reception in The Premier Ballroom. The venue is so grand and completely breathtaking. In regards to the menu, our wedding cake was beautiful and the dinner entrees were all delicious. The portions were perfect as my friends and family all LOVE to eat, so I’m happy with all of the hor d’ oeuvres and entrees we decided upon. We also had cupcakes during desert, which everyone loved. Throughout the weekend, my guests were well taken care of and there were so many restaurants and things to do for everyone of all ages. Knowing every single guest not only enjoyed the wedding festivities but also the resort casino validated our decision in choosing Foxwoods as our wedding venue. As a bride I wanted everything to be perfect, however, this can only be achieved if you chose the right vendors who share your vision and who take the time and effort in developing a trusting relationship. As soon as the wedding events began, the staff at Foxwoods along with my other amazing vendors (DJ, Florist, Decorator, Videographer/Photographer) took over and made the events one that no one will ever forget. Foxwoods staff is extremely friendly and easy to work with. Seeing how everyone came together to make my events so special is something I am so grateful for. I want to thank everyone at Foxwoods who was involved in the process of helping me throughout my many visits onsite in addition to the big day. You all are truly amazing and I highly recommend future brides to give this venue a chance! My family and I are looking forward to the day we get to host another event with this amazing venue in the future.
