What Brides Are Saying

Bethany and Fox from Lake of Isles were what made our wedding day "perfect", which was the word from the day from many guests and family, and of course my husband and I. We worked with them over a long engagement in the span of 2 years, and the entire time they were extremely efficient with communication and made everything seem so easy. We reached out randomly with questions and requests for tiny details to make our wedding our own over that span, and every time we were met with enthusiasm and ease of change. The day-of we had a wonderful attendant who was always there to get us water or joke with us in the bridal area when we needed to cut tension after the ceremony (she even helped my bridesmaids with the bustle!). The ceremony and the reception were perfectly seamless, and many guests remarked on how that was "the best wedding food" they ever had, including a few vegans who remarked that other venues they have been to tend to have the vegan dish as throwaway but that Lake of Isles really cared about making a great dish. I would work with them again and again. My wedding was perfect because of them. Thank you guys for everything

Kimberly & Nathan, December 17, Wingdale, NY

We would highly recommend this absolutely gorgeous venue. Affordable pricing! Bethany was absolutely amazing to work with to help us plan our wedding! Our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was at our wedding and how beautiful the venue was. Their preferred vendors list is full of vendors who are masters in their jobs. On the day of Fox and Cindy made us feel like absolute royalty! We seriously did not have to worry about anything other than enjoying our day! The team at Lake of Isles truly made our day unforgettable! 

Julia & Max, October 28, 2022, Westerly, RI

Lake of Isles is truly a gem! My husband and I couldn’t ask for a better place to spend our special day. Bethany was absolutely amazing and was with us through every moment of planning. She handled everything so well and made everything a breeze. She even helped my mom and bridesmaid bustle my dress, as well as helped me get a stain out of my dress at the end of the night!! I cannot thank her enough for being a huge part of my wedding planning. The cocktail hour on the deck at the golden hour was a huge perk. Our private butler Cynthia was so attentive and made sure we had food and a drink in our hand. The flow of the wedding went sooo smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. If you want a stress free wedding with amazing food and staff, then don’t look any further and pick this place! You will not be disappointed. 
There will never be enough words to describe how much we loved Lake of Isles as the venue for our entire wedding day. From the ceremony on the dock to the reception in the Pequot Ballroom, it was by far the best day of our lives.
Nikki & Robert, August 20, 2022, Shelton, CT

Bethany, Fox and the team at Lake of Isles could not have done a better job in the 13 months it took to plan this wedding. From touring the venue for me via Zoom as I was living in Hawaii, to helping remove grass stains from my dress before the ceremony, there is no better wedding coordinator than Bethany. I was always told this position solely looks out for the venue itself, but Bethany always had our best interest in mind and wanted to achieve what we envisioned. She could not have made this process easier.

Bethany really gave us room to make this wedding our goal with little customizations here and there. The most fun being instead of doing a wedding cake, their bakery made us a tiramisu, our favorite dessert! My now-husband was deployed and out of contact most of the planning and I don’t think I could’ve planned our day without Bethany’s guidance.

The venue is beyond stunning, especially in the Fall and our guests could not stop taking pictures because they loved it so much.

The food was incredible from cocktail hour to the dessert. There was something for everyone and we appreciated how many options they had. Their staff, especially our attendant Abby, ensured we got to try everything, especially since we missed most of cocktail hour due to taking many photos. We never were without something we wanted.
Kate & Adam, October 21, 2022, Hawaii

I can’t think of a better place to have a wedding. Lake of Isles as it all! I can’t wait to go back and visit and this place will always hold a special space in our hearts.
Lake of Isles is one of my most cherished spots now and forever! We toured Lake of Isles in the spring of 2021 and absolutely fell in LOVE! The scenery is truly picturesque, the grounds are immaculate, and the tavern, outdoor ceremony space, and ballroom have a rustic yet elegant feel. If you get the chance to book your wedding with Bethany Arico, you will have the most perfect and magical day. Bethany is punctual, organized, balanced, strong, and so thoughtful. She puts her heart and soul into helping couples plan their milestone of a day and sincerely cares about each and every detail. We were able to feel fully present on our wedding day, and cannot thank the team at Lake of Isles enough for ensuring that we would be without worry. From the scenic area, the food, the team, and the space, you will not regret booking Lake of Isles for your wedding!

Taylor & PJ, October 7, 2022, West Simsbury, CT

Lake of Isles was the BEST decision we made! It was everything we could have asked for and more. The ballroom is beautiful and the lakefront deck was such a perfect spot for our day. Bethany is an absolute dream to work with and one of the reasons we picked Lake of Isles! From start to finish, she was always there to answer any questions we had, made sure our day went absolutely perfect and helped us with literally anything we needed. She made such a great connection with us and we truly can’t thank her enough. Bethany also was our day of coordinator and the day went so smoothly and was absolutely perfect, all thanks to her! The staff is so lovely and attentive. From the waitstaff, to the bartenders, and everyone behind the scenes… they really did a phenomenal job!! The food was amazing and our guests still rave about it. I highly recommend Lake of Isles, there’s sooo many good things to say about them, you truly won’t regret it!

Hannah & Zach, September 24, 2022, East Haddam, CT

I don’t even know how to put into words what an amazing venue this is. From the location to food to staff it is an all in one place. Bethany worked with my husband and I from day one to the very last second of our wedding day and was nothing but phenomenal. The outside deck where we got married is an amazing place with great scenery for all your pictures (I even had some mist of my wedding day and the pictures are still AMAZING). I cannot express enough that this venue needs to be looked at if you’re getting married in the New England area. You won’t be disappointed!

Analisa & David, October 1, 2022, Cranston, RI

Stop what you're doing...visit and book this venue now! My husband and I could not have asked for a better venue, day and team at Lake of Isles! We actually did not have a formal visit to Lake of Isles due to my husband and I's work schedules. My parents visited and met with Sheila (Director of Catering prior to Bethany). My parents had great things to say about the venue, so my husband and I ended up going there and walking around one afternoon. We knew once we got to Lakes of Isles, it was the venue we were supposed to get married at. It was a nice mix of being on the water which is what I wanted and the rustic feel that my husband wanted.

We booked this venue in 2019 with plans of a September 2020 wedding. When plans had to change, Bethany didn't even flinch and secured our September 2021 date for us. It was common for me to email Bethany at 11:00 pm with questions along the way and Bethany was so prompt in her responses back and happy to help with everything. Everyone needs a "Bethany '' in their wedding planning journey - truly could not have asked for a better person to help us along the way and truly make this journey and day so special for us! She made us feel like we were lifelong friends! Bethany was even our meteorologist on the day of our wedding. It was raining in the afternoon, and she came into the Bridal Suite and said if you are alright with pushing the ceremony for another 20-30 minutes, I think we can still do the ceremony on the deck. She does it all!

A year later, my husband and I are still getting compliments about the wedding from guests saying it was one of the best weddings they have been to and asking when we are going to get married again! :) The staff is absolutely wonderful - from the bartenders, wait staff, the Banquet Manager, our personal waiter/waitress - you can really tell they love their jobs. The food was amazing and of course the ice cream bar was a must! Honestly, we cannot recommend Lake of Isles and Bethany enough - it is the ultimate wedding venue! 

Kaitlin & Ron, September 5, 2021, North Kingstown, RI

We got married at LOI in July and it was perfection! When we met Bethany, she was a large part of the reason we chose the venue. She was organized and so pleasant - we instantly felt confident she would make the wedding a success and we were right. She was always easy to reach and happy to help. Kyle was our day-of coordinator for both our rehearsal dinner at Matches Tavern and for the ceremony/reception and is truly the greatest. He was on top of every detail, we never worried about anything those two days. He and Cindy (our wonderful attendant) were so much fun and made us feel very well taken care of. The food was fantastic - we got multiple comments from guests and our almond cake from Scrumptions was a crowd favorite. Guests are still mentioning it! Honestly, from start to finish, this was the best event planning experience. One guest asked 'how we found this gem of a venue' and another even commented "I don't know why you'd get married anywhere else". We completely agree - between Bethany, Kyle, Cindy and the venue amenities - we wouldn't get married anywhere else! 

Katie & Joe, July 29, 2022, Ledyard, CT

We began planning our wedding 2 years ahead with Bethany. When we imagined having someone to correspond with and connect with at my wedding venue, we didn't even realize truly how Bethany could be any better. She was prompt in responding to anything I asked for, supported my family in all ideas and needs, and made connections with us that made us feel like we were lifelong friends! She is one in a million. We met Kyle (our day of coordinator) during our wedding week. He immediately took charge and ensured that everything would be as perfect as we planned with Bethany. And it was. He was consistently in every corner making sure the evening went exactly how we hoped. Especially making sure that my special 'man dance' went smoothly and located each participant with ease (not knowing a single one). Kyle was fantastic! For drinks, we got reviews of our bridal drink being the tastiest margarita they have ever had! And food came out delicious. We even got to take home the extra pizza and donuts from our evening enhancements. If we could throw a party at this venue annually we would. It was a superior experience and worth every penny.

Katie & Jared, July 2, 2022, South Windsor, CT 

Wedding venue of our dreams. My husband and I knew our wedding was going to be perfect because we were marrying each other, but somehow Lake of Isles (specifically, Bethany and Kyle) surpassed our vision of perfection. We booked Lake of Isles a year and a half before our wedding date, and for that entire time, Bethany answered all my emails with urgency and truly made me feel like the most important person she was talking to. Now more than ever, it is hard to find someone who truly wants to help you every step of the way. Bethany is the reason I was so calm about wedding planning, while I was hearing horror stories about wedding planning around me. Bethany gave me honesty and reliability, two important characteristics for any bride planning her wedding. She made everything enjoyable for us and we had full confidence that our wedding day was going to be everything we had wished for. On our wedding day, Kyle was our day of coordinator. If Bethany was our quarterback, Kyle was our running back and she handed Kyle our wedding like a football, and ladies and gentleman, it was a touchdown. Starting at our rehearsal, Kyle made sure we rehearsed our ceremony a couple times, three times to be exact, but that was exactly what we needed. On our wedding night, it was like second nature going through everything and we were able to focus on each other and have all the feels as we vow our lives together. Kyle had the confidence to guide us through the rehearsal and be there every step of the way on our wedding night. He knew exactly what to say and do to make everyone feel calm and for everything to run smoothly. I am proud to say we did not have one thing go wrong on our wedding night and that we owe to Kyle. He even made sure our parents were pleased with everything throughout the night and would ask them if they needed anything, which is something very important to us because this night was also about them. If we could do it again, we would chose Lake of Isles every time over and over again. We are not from around the area and everyone would ask us why we choose such a far venue, once they left our wedding, everyone understood what we saw in Lake of Isles. It is a special place that makes you feel like your wedding is the most important day to them, so if that is what you are looking for, look no further because this place delivers everything and more. We have all the love for Lake of Isles and have the privilege to give them our full recommendation.

Samantha & Rob, July 8, 2022, Stormville, NY

We got married June of 2022. Our day was PERFECT. My husband and I continue to get compliments from guests on how great the food was and how organized the day was. Bethany was responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. She made me feel at ease and gave me confidence to make decisions. The staff kept everything running smoothly, on time and were in sight at all times. Highly recommend the donut bar as an add on for desert! 

Jessica & John, June 11, 2022, Wethersfield, CT

Book this venue right now!
The food was amazing (my guests are still talking about the filet mignon), the staff were professional and organized and kind and every other positive trait you want from your wedding staff. Shoutouts to Bethany the amazing director of catering and Fairy Godmother extraordinaire, Kyle our day-of man who by bridesmaids declared would need to remain a part of our lives, and Cindy our personal waitress, so attentive and kind and helpful - we should all be so lucky to have a Cindy on our wedding day.

I didn’t even mention how naturally gorgeous the ceremony site on the dock is, how timelessly elegant the ballroom is and how much we loved having the cocktail hour in Matches Tavern downstairs.

Beyond happy with our decision to book Lake of Isles!!!

Karen & Rob, June 4, 2022, Deep River, CT

Our wedding last weekend was perfect and that was in large part due to Bethany and her team. We started planning our wedding close to 3 years ago and between the pandemic and our chaotic life, planning this wedding should have been a struggle to say the least but Bethany was right there every step of the way. Answered every question we asked, answered every question we forgot to ask, suggested vendors, offered advice when needed and, most of all, was just a pleasure to work with. She's great at what she does and cares about her couples not just because it's her job, but because of who she is as a person. She's also got a stellar team around her. Kyle was our go to all wedding day long, Cindy went above and beyond to get us where we needed to go and the waitstaff/bartenders were on point the whole night. As a couple who work in the hospitality business, Bethany and her team are the dream team and you will be in the best hands. The food was great, the venue is beautiful and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect night to remember for the rest of our lives. Thank you Bethany, Kyle, Cindy and everyone else at Lake of Isles for helping make our wedding dream a reality!

Meaghan & Brendon, May 29, 2022, Warwick, RI

We cannot thank Bethany and the team at Lake of Isles enough; they made our wedding planning easy, took care of all the set up and take down, and made the day happen without a hitch! The location is absolutely breathtaking and my now husband and I fell in love with the location upon first sight; Bethany made it extremely easy to jump on and say “yes” to getting married here. Throughout the whole process Bethany was always very responsive and transparent; we are so grateful to have had her on our team. Something that we really wanted was to get married outside and in the process of finding a place we knew we’d have to be happy with the alternative “just in case” - the ballroom is incredible and the giant windows help bring the outside in. When we first walked into the ballroom I turned to my now husband and told him “I’d be okay getting married inside if it was here.” Which was good because we got an unfortunately cold and windy/rainy day and the inside setup was perfect and made my guests very comfortable! The other big item that Lake of Isles takes care of is the catering; let me tell you this food is INCREDIBLE - I totally savored every bite! The whole day was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have asked for better!
Amelia & Mike, May 7, 2022, Tolland, CT
My sister had her wedding reception at Lake of Isles and I was absolutely blown away by our experience. I worked as a catering sales manager at a high-end catering company in Boston and have very high expectations when it comes to food and service. When I say Lake of Isles exceeded my expectations, trust me when I say it means a lot! I’ve worked with wedding vendors hundreds of times and have never experienced such phenomenal service like we did from the team at Lake of Isles. The food was outstanding and the service was unbelievable. Bethany and Kyle were so personable and attentive not only to my sister and her husband but to our parents and the entire wedding party. I can’t recommend their venue, team, and food enough!
Catherine (Sister of the Bride), May 14, 2022


I cannot say enough about Lake of Isles!!!!!! Bethany, Kyle, and the rest of the staff went above and beyond for us. Bethany has been so incredibly helpful this past year and a half- she is so knowledgeable and answers your questions so quickly! She is one of the most genuine people and I seriously am so thankful to have had her throughout this process. Kyle was absolutely AMAZING as our day of coordinator and made our vision come to life. Not a single thing went wrong (and if it did I'm sure Bethany would never tell the bride ;) ). I had a last minute change the morning of the wedding and Bethany handled it like it was nothing! I am seriously in awe at how accommodating and genuine these people are. My entire family and our friends are still telling me how much they loved everyone at Lake of Isles! I really cannot say enough about the entire staff. I want to go back to Lake of Isles just to hang out with all of them again!!!! I would HIGHLY recommend them endlessly for any bride.

Maria & Brendan, May 14, 2022, Pawcatuck, CT

Lake of Isles is the best place to get married! Bethany and her team did everything in their power to ensure that we had the most amazing day. The whole wedding planning process was smooth and efficient. Bethany was communicative and answered all of my questions quickly. I did not have one single doubt that our wedding would not be perfect. The food was amazing and our guests still rave about the dinner options. The bacon table and pretzel bar were a huge hit! If you are looking for a spot in Southeastern CT to get married, LOI is the venue you want!

Diane & Alex, December 11, 2021, Gilman, CT

We were overwhelmingly satisfied with the staff, crew, venue, location and energy at Lake of Isles. It was the perfect choice for us as the wedding couple. Our guests had nothing but positive things to say about Lake of Isles afterwards. Everyone walked away with a great experience. Barbara and Cindy kept us on track ( and our wedding part too ! ) during the event. They couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful during the wedding. They made everything easy and fun with a smile. However, we can't do a review of our wedding and Lake of Isles without singling out the effort, patience, recommendations, attention to detail, and overall professionalism and kindness of Bethany Arico. Bethany was the main reason we chose Lake of Isles. From our first inquiry to the day after the wedding, Bethany made Lake of Isles the ultimate wedding destination for us. Couldn't have done it without her !!

Jen & Ralph, October 15, 2021, West Haven, CT

We absolutely loved everything about our wedding at Lake of Isles. We met with the director of catering, Bethany, and were immediately sold on the venue. She is so kind and knowledgeable, and helped us throughout planning, answering all of our questions promptly, and even remembered and surprised my husband with a special drink request that he had mentioned at our first meeting. The location is beautiful, and the packages they offer are all inclusive with food, bar, and cake as well as your choice of add ons which made planning a breeze. They also offer a complimentary suite at Foxwoods for the couple (depending on the package you choose) and some golf perks. The day of coordinator, Barbara, was also a delight, and ensured that everything ran smoothly. I can not recommend Lake of Isles enough! 

Camaren & Patrick, November 6, 2021 Oakdale, CT

To say we had the time of our lives would be a major understatement. Our experience was exactly how we had hoped it would be and more. I am not a big planner, and Bethany made everything so easy and straightforward. Every person we worked with was so considerate and helpful, we never had to ask for anything throughout the evening. The staff were so good to us, it was hard to say goodbye at the end of the night. We were able to just enjoy our time without having to worry about the details or general comfort of our guests. Every question we had during the planning process was answered and dealt with smoothly. They handled all the questions from our families during the rehearsal dinner and made sure the food for the rehearsal didn’t overlap with our reception food. The food both evenings was phenomenal and praised by the guests. The venue itself is gorgeous with beautiful views. We will update with photos of the venue as soon as we get them from our photographer. 

Grace & Mike, October 1, 2021 Exeter, NH

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!!!!!!

Samantha & Danny, October 17, 2021, Streetsboro, OH


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.

Chrissy & Andy, August 20, 2021, Ludlow, MA


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. 

Alyssa & Garrett, September 24, 2021, Rocky Hill, CT


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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!

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!
