    2101 Commonwealth gave us the perfect day!

    We chose this venue out of convenience, initially -- we had a fast (6 month) engagement and we wanted a venue that was beautiful, top quality, close to the city for those who were flying in, and convenient for us to work with. Those were pretty high expectations given only 6 months to prepare, but Michelle and her team managed to put together the perfect day for us. We got a million compliments on the beauty of the venue, the quality of the food, and the incredible service -- I still get comments from friends almost a year later about how magical our day was. Michelle also helped me find the perfect florist. Even though we were guinea pigs for this venue, they were incredibly flexible as we worked out the kinks together and remained so professional and responsive the whole time. I so wish we could go back and relive our day over and over! I wouldn't change a thing.

    Welcome to the best venue

    2101 Commonwealth Ave was a dream come true. From beginning to end, the venue provided a 5 star service that would rival any top hotel. The staff was professional, helpful, and eager to please.
    The space itself was elegant, rich in history, and perfectly manicured. It has a wow factor that you dream about. I can not say enough good things about this venue and staff. You will be lucky to book your wedding here and I hope I am invited!
