What Brides Are Saying
Where to begin, Bethany is everything and more you will ever want and need in a wedding planner. She is incredible, responsive, friendly, smart, and super organized. My husband and I planned our wedding out of state and Bethany was there for every question we had, anything we needed, she was prompt, and thorough. Bethany is one of a kind and you will not be able to find someone better as Bethany is beyond the best!!!!! Further, Lake of Isles as a venue is so beautiful. We had our ceremony on the lakefront deck and it was breathtaking. The LOI crew set up everything perfectly. The reception was inside the ballroom, and wow it was beautiful and elegant. We cannot forgot to mention Barbara, Cindy, and Joe as they are amazing! Barbara and Cindy ensured everything during our wedding (before and after) ran smoothly and on time and they are also super sweet! Joe was our bartender and he knows his stuff! He is friendly and made sure everyone had a drink and was well tended to. Nevertheless, my husband and my family (as well as all of ours guests as they have all said it was the best wedding they have been to) cannot express how amazing LOI is and how Bethany and the LOI crew make this possible. Book your wedding and events here, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!!!

I cannot express enough to anyone looking for a wedding venue to check this place out. The venue itself is beautiful from when you walk into a cozy library fireplace room, to the beautiful ball room with high old train station ceiling feels. If you are looking to have your ceremony and reception in the same place, this is a wonderful spot for just that. Guests were able to relax in the downstairs tavern and patio area before the ceremony, when it was time they were escorted to a deck that extended over a beautiful lake. If you’re lucky enough like we were, you may even have deer in the background making your day even more magical. After the ceremony, guests are able to go right into the reception banquet room and to their seats where appetizers we choose were passed around to tables. The room is the perfect size to see everyone from your seat, and also large enough to have plenty of space to dance and move. After the reception is over if you are not ready for your day to end, you are 3 minutes from Foxwoods Casino! We had over 50 guest rooms booked there, and were able to stay in our wedding clothes and bump into our guests over and over again at the casino ! We even had the opportunity to play a few slots in our wedding dress & suit. It was so nice to keep the night going, staying in the Fox Tower hotel & then being able to see everyone all over again the next morning :)
The staff at Lake of Isles is even better than the actual location and building, which is hard to beat. The staff member who prepares you for your day, in our case her name was Bethany, ends up getting to know you so well and communicating with you so much that they feel like a friend. I am a teacher, I had a lot of questions in getting prepared for the wedding and I know I over emailed. Bethany never once made me feel like I was emailing too much or bothering her with questions I probably could have answered myself looking on the website. I was so thrilled she was even able to see us off on our wedding day, because as I said she really came to feel like a friend to us. The staff is organized, professional and attentive to who you are and what your vision is for the wedding. I am gluten free and they went above and beyond to be sure that there were so many options for me as well from the first appetizers to the desserts, and even a special birthday donut bowl surprise. My glass was never empty and there was nothing I was ever wondering about, questioning or wanting.
With the top notch staff, venue and location I highly suggest any couple getting married to look into The Lake of Isles @ Foxwoods.

I had the best experience with planning my wedding at Lake of Isles. All of the staff leading up to the big day were very responsive and made me feel so at ease. I was able to drop off all of my décor the day before and they exceeded my expectations with setting everything up. The ballroom looked amazing. I received so many compliments about how good the food was, especially the donut bar! It was also nice to have someone making sure my husband and I were taken care of throughout the day.

We could not imagine having our wedding anywhere but Lake of Isles! After our initial tour, this was an easy decision for us. Bethany is AMAZING! She was such a pleasure to work with throughout our whole 18 month planning process. Any time we went to her with a question or problem, she took care of EVERYTHING! We are seriously going to miss working with her, she's such a joy to interact with! Barbara was our day-of coordinator and she was right on top of everything as well! Our wedding day ran so smoothly we were actually able to eat our dinner, visit with all of our guests, and enjoy plenty of time on the dance floor. Our guests had so many wonderful things to say about the beautiful venue, delicious food, and amazing service throughout the night! If we could do it all over again, we would pick Lake of Isles every single time!
Mary & Matt, September 18, 2021, Vernon, CT
I wish I could give Lake of Isles, including Bethany and her team 10 stars!! Our wedding was in September 2021 when COVID restrictions were lifted, but potentially starting to come back, and Bethany was sure to keep us in the loop of what it meant for our wedding. When I had people unexpectedly back out, Bethany worked with me on the catering menu so that we can be sure we met food minimums while maximizing every dollar we spent.
The day of wedding support from Barbara and Melissa was paramount to helping us enjoy our day! Anything we needed or had questions on, both were right there with an answer. It really helped us be able to sit back and relax.
The food was absolutely delicious- our guests could not stop talking about it!
The venue (which included the lakefront deck for ceremony, Matches Tavern for cocktail hour, and upstairs ballroom for reception) was absolutely gorgeous and decorated with all our items exactly how we discussed at the final appointment before the big day.
Overall, I cannot say enough good things about the location, the venue itself, and the people that work at LOI! 10/10 would definitely recommend this venue to others!
Amber & Mike, September 11, 2021, Warwick, RI
We got married in July 2021 at Lake of Isles, and could not have been happier with our choice! Bethany was so flexible throughout the planning process, even with COVID 19 and capacity changes throughout. Barbara and the entire day-of staff were so helpful and everything went so smoothly and looked beautiful, which was such a relief after the stressful planning season during the pandemic! Highly recommend!!
Caitlin & Chris, July 24, 2021, New Fairfield, CT
We got married at Lake of Isles in April 2021 and let me just say that the staff and the organization of the venue was amazing!!! It was challenging to plan a wedding during COVID, but Bethany was with us through everything in terms of planning, back up ideas, and guest number changes. Our day of the wedding was perfect! The staff at the venue was so on top of it all that I didn’t even have to think about anything that day aside from getting married, as they had everything else covered. We got so many compliments from our guests on the venue itself and the amazing staff. I would recommend Lake of Isles for anyone looking for a wedding venue in this area. We truly had the best experience!
Elise & Josh, April 24, 2021, Savannah, GA
Everything was perfect! 2020 was a year of uncertainty and Lake of Isles was with us for the ride! Bethany was amazing and helped us re-plan and make a new vision for our wedding! The food was fantastic and the atmosphere that we created was just magical! We couldn’t have asked for a more attentive and professional group of people to work with to make our day so special!
Breen & Corey, September 19, 2020, Cranston, RI
Choosing Lake of Isles as our wedding venue was the best decision that we made through this wedding planning process. Our wedding was originally supposed to be on April 25th but was postponed due to COVID-19. Through the panic of postponing our wedding twice, Bethany at Lake of Isles is an absolute sweetheart and was always there to calm me down whether it was through 75 back to back emails or 75 back to back phone calls. I truly don’t believe we would’ve had a wedding at all if it wasn’t for Bethany and her incredible team. We were originally going to be married in a church but the church closed down, Lake of Isles let us change ceremony locations last minute and organized the whole thing on their beautiful lake front deck. Bethany and Barbara paid attention to every little detail and didn’t miss a beat when it came time to put it altogether. I honestly didn’t have to do much work, they did it all for me. Our wedding day was seamless and as stress free as it could have possibly been and I couldn’t recommend this venue more. On our wedding day we were lucky enough to work with Cindy who brought us drinks and took care of us all night. My husband walked off the ceremony site saying “I’m thirsty” and 10 seconds later he had a drink in his hand. We were also lucky enough to work with Joe who was the bartender at our wedding and everyone loved him! I have been getting non stop compliments from my guests about how amazing the staff was and how amazing the food was. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better wedding even through a pandemic and having to downsize, it was the absolute best day of my life and I truly owe it all to this incredible venue!
Noura & Scott, August 14, 2020, Preston, CT
Without question, Lake of Isles is one of the best places to get married! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and Foxwoods is such a convenient place to keep the party going afterwards. Sheila and Bethany were incredible to work with! They really made us feel like we were family and that our wedding was their top priority. Sheila had a timeline in place for everything, was super organized, and quickly answered any question we had. Bethany helped to calm all of our nerves and made sure every tiny detail was perfect on our wedding day. You really don’t need a wedding coordinator when you have these two on your team! The food really surpassed our expectations and having a waiter day-of to make sure we had the opportunity to actually eat it was perfect! I honestly can’t praise everyone enough. Thank you for making our wedding a fairytale!
Shianne & Kyle, November 9, 2019, Durham CT
From the beginning to end of my planning LOI made everything perfect, easy, and flawless. Sheila and Bethany are AMAZING! They were on top of every little detail and made the entire planning process and wedding completely stress free and fun. The catering was awesome, every single staff member the night of the wedding was attentive and didn't miss a beat. The night went flawlessly, I wish I could re-live it all over again.
Jessica & Pete, November 23, 2019, Old Saybrook, CT
Kyle and I were thrilled with how everything turned out, you and Bethany made our night become more than we ever even dreamed. It was perfect in every way, from the decorations, to the smooth flow of events, to the food, to how easy it was to find you or Bethany with anything we may need. If I could relive that day over and over again, I would.
MacKenzie & Kyle, November 16, 2019, New London, CT
David and I cannot say enough wonderful things about our wedding day at Lake of Isles, as well as the exceptional services that you provided to us. The whole planning process from start to finish was smooth and painless, which made wedding planning even more enjoyable. I never doubted, for one minute, that there would be anything forgotten about or left out.
Our wedding day was truly magical and even more than we could have hoped for. Bethany was extremely organized and calm, making sure every second went on schedule and with perfection. David was especially impressed at the attention we received throughout the day, always making sure we had any beverage we needed, that we always had food nearby, and we did not miss out on a single second.
Every single one of our guests, have commented on the quality of the food and service, even going as far to say, that this was some of the best food they ever had at a wedding! It meant a lot to us (and our guests) that allergies were taken into consideration and were not an issue.
Overall this was a day we will never forget, and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make that possible. There are not enough words to express how thankful we are and how much we recommend you to everyone and anyone that will listen. It really has been a pleasure and I hope to work with you in some capacity again in the future.
Ashley & Dave, November 10, 2019, Cranston, RI
Thank you so much for the amazing service from our first planning meeting to us leaving our reception. Everything was truly spectacular! We received so many compliments on everything from the Cocktail Hour to the Venetian Table and everything in between. Our reception was everything we imagined it would be and more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. Our day was a fairytale!
Melissa & Sean, June 29, 2019, New London, CT
Lake of Isles was the perfect spot for our wedding reception. Sheila was professional, kind and diligent. Bethany (our day of coordinator) could not have been better. She made us feel important and took care of every detail we wanted. We wish we could do it all over again.
Sarah & Zack, October 13, 2019, Farmington, CT
We found Lake of Isles while searching on Wedding Wire… it was the first place we looked at, and knew immediately this is where we wanted to have our wedding. No other facility we looked at afterwards lived up to your venue in terms of friendly staff, amazing ceremony view, food and reception package. Thank you!
Mina & Josh, September 14, 2019, Newington, CT
We recommend Lake of Isles to anyone who is planning their wedding. Everything was amazing! The venue was set up just as we envisioned if not even better! Bethany and Sheila are an amazing team and they go above and beyond. We cannot thank the two of them enough, and truly felt like they were part of our family/friends during the whole wedding planning process. Everything was perfect! Sheila, the Director of Catering, is amazing. She was helpful and really took the time out to not only offer advice, but get to know us. We felt comfortable and truly welcomed the first day we visited Lake of Isles. We instantly knew this was the venue for us. Everything was seamless with Lake of Isles. Sheila was quick to respond to questions we had and took every question seriously, even if it was simple or silly. Bethany, who is in charge the day of, was wonderful in making sure everything went perfect the day of. She was great at organizing the wedding party and all formalities. We are still having guests who comment on how amazing the food was and the service of the wait staff. The staff was very friendly and really cared for every one of our guests. We were overly pleased with everything! We absolutely loved having our wedding at Lake of Isles!
Kim & Matt, July 19, 2019, Mystic, CT
We got married August 24th 2019. This venue is worth every penny. We got so many compliments on the food, and we had a personal waiter coming up to me and my husband all night asking if we needed anything (which trust me, you are so busy you almost forget to eat!). Sheila and Bethany are SO organized I didn’t even have an ounce of stress that something would go wrong the day of. Everything went so smoothly. Lake of Isles will make you feel like a queen for the day!! Highly recommend this venue. You will not be disappointed.
Erin, August 24, 2019, Ledyard, CT
Thank you so much for everything. Our experience at our wedding was fantastic! Everything was so well organized and it went smoothly. The entire staff was fantastic to work with and really showed that they cared. People are still telling us how much fun they had at our wedding. Thank you for everything!
Kristen & Sam, August 3, 2019, Vernon, CT
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for all you did to coordinate and facilitate our beautiful day. We just had the best time, and are still in complete wedding bliss. Everything at Lake of Isles was absolute perfection. Our guests said that the drive was SO worth it, and complimented how beautiful the venue is. Our guests were blown away by the exceptional quality of service and attentiveness of the wait staff and day of coordinators, delicious food and portion sizes, as well as the overall feeling of our special event. Chris and Melissa were an absolute dream and were excellent at meeting our every want and need. We felt so special. We cannot thank you enough for your time and efforts spent making sure our special day was an absolute dream.
Cyndi & Joe, August 2, 2019, Stratford, CT
It's hard to believe our wedding was one month ago now. It was truly a perfect day, and we are so happy with how everything turned out. So many people had wonderful things to say afterwards. We know we made the best choice in picking Lake of Isles (almost two years ago now!). Thank you for everything! It was truly a pleasure working with you, and I am sad it's over now.
Kristen, June 22, 2019, Mansfield, MA
I’ve been trying to find the right words before reaching out to you. But there are none. There’s nothing I can come up with that’ll express the way I feel (I know I speak for Pam here, too) about how amazing our experience was. With how attentive you and Bethany (and Cindy) were throughout our afternoon/evening, and everything you did to see to it that our event went as well as it could have, I’ll absolutely never forget our day. It was Perfect!!
Albert & Pam, July 13, 2019, South Glastonbury, CT
Sheila, I can’t thank you enough for all you have done for us throughout the year. You were so helpful and easy to work with and nothing was too much trouble. The Ceremony and Wedding reception exceeded our expectations and was the best day of our lives. From the out door ceremony to the cocktail hour in Matches and our delicious meal prepared by Chef Ben and his staff. Bethany made sure every aspect of the Wedding was executed perfectly. You are all such a great asset to the Lake of Isles. So many of our guests said it was the best Wedding they were ever at. A true testament to you and your staff. Go raibh maith agat! (Thank you!)
Alison & James, July 6, 2019, Hope Valley, RI
Thank you so much! We couldn’t have asked for anything else! Your whole staff really do go above and beyond for your clients. I worried about nothing and that is a tall order for someone like myself ;) Everything was beautiful and just the way I imagined it, down to the number of Hershey kisses on the table. You all do a wonderful job there and can’t wait to attend another wedding there this October to see you all again!
Andrea, July 4, 2019, Griswold, CT
The whole staff especially Sheila, Bethany, and our attendant Cindy, were incredible. All of our guests have been raving about the reception from the aesthetics to the food,everyone was so pleased. We are so grateful to everyone's hard work and so glad we chose Lake of Isles. Sheila and Bethany are both just incredible people and exceptional at their jobs. They worked tirelessly to make our day perfect and it truly was. We can't describe or provide enough praise and gratitude and can't wait to recommend the facility to everyone! Thank you so much!
Anne, June 15, 2019, Shelton, CT
Lake of Isles, Sheila, Bethany, and all staff gave us the wedding of our dreams. You allowed us to take away only beautiful, joyous memories from the day. You are all expert at what you do and I thank you immensely. I wish you much prosperity and fulfillment in the future. Any wedding couple would be fortunate to experience your expertise and professionalism for their very special day. Thank you, thank you!
Donna & Steve, June 7, 2019, Newington, CT
I can't believe this weekend is already over! I was sad to see it pass by so fast but so unbelievably happy how wonderful it was! Thank you for making our wedding day so amazing and special. You have an amazing staff. EVERYONE raved over the food, the service, the rooms, everything. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! Again, I couldn't have done this without you or your wonderful staff. Happy Holidays to you and your family and to your family at Lake of Isles.
Emily & Josh, December 1, 2018, Westerly, RI
From the moment we walked into Lake of Isles and met Sheila, we knew this venue was going to be perfect for our wedding. Sheila was so welcoming and supportive throughout our initial walk through. She walked us through the venue with compassion and sincere excitement for this new journey that we were on. Throughout the entire planning process, she was quick to respond to emails and phone calls to answer any questions that we had. Sheila always made us feel like our vision for our wedding was her first priority. It's obvious that Sheila genuinely loves helping brides plan their happily ever after and it's evident that she is compassionate. From the very beginning, we were confident in what Sheila and the rest of the Lake of Isles team had to offer us and we're so incredibly thankful for all of Sheila's help!
Bethany made sure that our rehearsal and wedding day ran smoothly and that we didn't have to worry about anything. During the final meeting, Bethany was on top of every aspect of our big day. She walked us through the entire day and ensured us that everything would move along as discussed. And that's exactly how the day went. We didn't have to worry about anything, Bethany made sure the wedding party was where they needed to be before and after the ceremony. She also made sure that we had everything that we needed and that we were okay with how things were running. This allowed us to enjoy every aspect of our wedding day, which was most important to us!
Caitlin, November 16, 2018, Brookfield, CT
Food was amazing. Staff was amazing. We heard for a month after the wedding how everyone had so much fun. That the venue was beautiful and their food was perfect as well as their wait staff. Thank you so much for everything. Lake of Isles made my wedding perfect from day one of planning!
Jenna, November 10, 2018, Kensington, CT
We are extremely pleased and thankful with everything! From top to bottom, staff was amazing, and made our night everything we could have hoped for and more! We are still receiving compliments from our guests about how great the service and the food were! We loved our experience with Lake of Isles :) Thank you so much!!
Amy & Joe, October 27, 2018, Salem, CT
Sheila, I can’t even express how grateful Blake and I are to you and your entire team! Everything was executed flawlessly leading up to the day and on the day of. We could not have asked for a better day. You, Chris, and Melissa are absolutely incredible! From day one you were so responsive, organized, helpful, and just an absolute pleasure to work with. And Chris and Melissa killed it on the day of - they kept everything running smoothly and were right there when Blake or I needed anything. You deserve SO much props and I would recommend you guys to anyone! Thank you again for everything. We are SO appreciative!!!
Mari & Blake, October 13, 2018, West Hartford, CT
The team you have really made the event so special. The location and grounds are of course beautiful… but it would not have been a great wedding without your staff. Everything was seamless and perfect. I felt like I could truly enjoy the night. Thank you!
Courtney, September 29, 2018, Berlin, CT,
I can’t even begin to explain to you how amazing our day was with you guys. Incredible honestly. I’ve never had more people say what an amazing wedding before. We nailed it! And I have you to thank. You made the entire planning process so enjoyable for me and were there all the time with a quick reply to any question I had. I am so incredibly thankful we chose Lake of Isles for our wedding. Best decision we have ever made (besides getting married in general). A million thank you’s truly isn’t enough to show how grateful we are. I still can’t believe the day is here and gone and now a memory. Looking back, there is absolutely nothing I would change about our day. I dropped off a box of goods to you guys and everyone did an amazing job of setting it all up for me. Everything was perfect. The room looked stunning and the food was amazing (got TONS of compliments on not only the food but how gorgeous the venue itself was). Thankfully the weather was perfect so we could show off the amazing views! Perfect is the word I keep using but it truly was how our day went. Unreal experience.
Brittany & Mark, September 15, 2018, Hebron, CT
We just wanted to thank you so much for Friday and this entire year leading up to the best weekend of our entire lives! We had one heck of a time and couldn’t have done it without you and the Lake of Isles staff. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We will recommend everyone we know to Lake of Isles!
Jessica & Erik, September 21, 2018, New York, NY
We loved everything about Lake of Isles from our first visit! The venue location is so beautiful, the food was amazing, every staff person was so kind and helpful from the bartenders to the waitresses and even the golf shop pros. Sheila is what really sold us on the venue though, she makes you feel so special and she is the most organized coordinator. Every detail was planned perfectly and she was so attentive and responsive to every email and phone call. Bethany was glue that held us all together for my wedding. I can't even begin to imagine what it takes to make sure all the vendors know where to go and where to set up and she made sure everyone was where they were supposed to be and made my vision of table arrangements, signs and memory table come to life. The wedding party kept saying how she was the most organized coordinator they have every worked with. I can't say enough positive things about Lake of Isles and the staff.
Alexandra & Connor, September 7, 2018, West Hartford, CT
I want to thank you and your staff because you are so caring, helpful and just awesome at what you guys do! You guys truly are amazing people and I think it's great working with people who love their job and their clients. It really makes the experience top notch. Even the following day picking up our stuff at the venue. Not sure the gentleman's name, but he was just so helpful and kind!! We have received numerous compliments on our wedding and Nick and I truly appreciate all you have done to help make our day perfect. You guys rock!
Erica, August 31, 2018, Enfield, CT
I cannot say enough about Lake of Isles. The food is so good, the lake view is amazing and everyone is so easy to work with! We got the most for our price out of any venue we looked at (including a free suite at Foxwoods!). Sheila is the coordinator there and is so easy to work with! She is a key asset to Lake of Isles. She is with you every step of the way and answers emails in an extremely timely fashion! I highly recommend this place!
Kayla & Derek, August 10, 2018, Wallingford, CT
Everything Lake of Isles did for us was incredible. Sheila being so willing to work with us from the very beginning was amazing and allowed us to breathe when things were getting stressful. The reception went off without a hitch and flowed so smoothly. Highly recommended - I have lots of friends getting married within the foreseeable future...definitely going to push for this venue! All of our guests raved about the filet and were highly impressed with the choice of liquors. Wish we could come back and do it all over again.
Anna & Francis, August 18, 2018, Oakdale, CT
We could not have had a better day! You and your entire staff were amazing! Cara and Eric and everyone had so much fun! From the bottom of my heart we thank you!! I have felt over the last several years that customer service has declined everywhere in the US. You and your team have reinstituted my faith in excellent customer service. You guys are professional and you should teach a class. Thank you so much!❤
Lisa & Chris (Parents-of-the-bride), August 4, 2018, Westerly, RI
Everything about our experience was awesome. Sheila and Bethany were on top of everything and didn't miss a beat! The day of, Melissa was extremely accommodating and we were able to have a seamless day with our friends and family. Our day was perfect and it would not have been possible without everyone at Lake of Isles. The service and quality were the best and I will recommend you to anyone looking to host an event. Thank you to all!!
Cara, August 4, 2018, Westerly, RI
