I have yet to unveil my daughter, KK and Tyler’s wedding reception venue on THIS blog. So…drum roll, please…They will be holding their wedding reception at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake in Middletown, CT. It is absolutely perfect for them. They wanted a outdoorsy, rustic feeling and this delivers. . And…it’s on a lake with a tiny beach. If you check out KK’s wedding website, you can see how a lake ties into Tyler’s proposal… I’m very excited. All photos on this blog were taken on site. Let’s only hope we can have a spectacular sunset like the one above!
In the next two photos, you see the dance floor and table settings. As with any wedding venue, the bride is able to choose linens to go with her color scheme. Flowers, from your choice of florist, will complete the vision to customize your look. Will we choose to use the fairy lighting in the pictures? I can’t tell…I do think it adds a nice romantic feel.
Notice the fabulous wood-sided walls. It give the barn feel both KK and Tyler coveted, without the barn. The main building has all the amenities so as to not inconvenience the guests for everyday necessities. I thought at one time of choosing particularly gorgeous venue, but it was quite out of the way and would require port-a-potties. While sometimes this sacrifice is worth it, I just couldn’t see it, especially for a bride…
The local scenery at the ‘Pavilion on Crystal Lake’ is not limited to a nice gazebo and tiny lake. I love these gorgeous mature trees. But once again, pictures as gorgeous as these will be dependent on the weather. Even IF it doesn’t rain on KK and Tyler’s wedding day, if it has recently, it would be far too muddy to take advantage of this beauty. Ah…the trials of living in New England… 🙂
