Gov. Ned Lamont announced that all restrictions for Connecticut businesses will be phased out by May 19.
“It means so much to us that we can finally help couples celebrate their love,” said Sodipo. “I think it’s going to take a community of people to really get everything up and running and for people to remain in businesses.” At the Aqua Turf Club in Southington, the venue has several events planned for the month of May with their first wedding with lifted restrictions taking place on May 21.
“We’re just really excited to get back to the planning and seeing what we can do,” said Ciavarella. When the couple heard about the rollback of restrictions in Connecticut, including that venues can operate at full capacity beginning May 19, they were ready to start booking their weddings.
Ashley Sodipo is the C.E.O of Ashley Sodipo Events and is Joanna and Frank’s wedding planner. Sodipo said that she’s excited to get back to helping her clients and believes this decision will mean a boost in business after months of enduring a tough time. “We started to realize that having a wedding of 300 attendees inside in November just didn’t seem feasible nor safe,” said Ciavarella. We were just very excited after the decision and particularly moving into the warmer weather and months is exciting and will allow us to have some flexibility.”
Starting May 19, event venues and restaurants will be able to open at full capacity. Source “We’re following what they want us to do so if everybody follows what’s supposed to take place, I think we’ll be okay,” said Alex.
The venue is known to host weddings, banquets, and proms. The business is now shifting its focus to May and beyond while keeping clients safe and happy. “We were pleasantly surprised and very excited in getting ready to getting back to doing what we do,” said Karen Alex, manager at Aqua Turf Club.
