I can't say enough amazing things about Avanti, and the Avanti team.
My husband and I were married on May 26, 2018 in their Japanese Garden, and had our reception in the big tent afterwards. Avanti is absolutely beautiful, and the few pictures I've gotten back from our photographer show this. The Japanese Garden is a unique, and beautiful ceremony site. Our guests were really very taken with it. The one thing I will say is that you should really think about what kind of dress you want - walking down those stairs in a full ballgown would be interesting to say the least!
The tent was exquisitely decorated, and included air conditioning, as we ended up with a pretty warm evening. The food is AMAZING. You will NOT be disappointed. Our guests are still raving about the food - everything from the hand passed h'orderves, to the salad, to the main course was delicious! We seemed to have a minor miscommunication with the cake - I think we assumed it would be served at the table instead of just being set out for guests to pick up, but we just had out DJ announce that it was available and that seemed to work just fine.
With our package, my husband and I also had the option to stay in the honeymoon suite in the Mansion the night of our wedding. The house is just as beautiful inside as it is out, and the suite was a fantastic oasis after a day of celebrating. Avanti even provides a simple breakfast for you and your spouse for the following morning.
Lastly, we worked with Colleen at Avanti. I had no idea what I was doing going into this, and she made absolutely everything so very easy. All of our options were very well explained, all of my crazy questions were answered quickly, and Colleen and the Avanti team made our special day super stress free.
I cannot recommend this venue enough. You will have no regrets having your wedding here.
Many thanks to Colleen and the Avanti Mansion team!

Just hired Avanti Mansion for our wedding in May 2019. You are not only getting a venue, but also an extremely knowledgeable staff of wedding planners that are willing to work within your budget and help you with every aspect of planning a wedding. Be sure to check this venue when you're looking. We visited many, and this was the place that answered ALL our questions upfront and honestly. We are so looking forward to working with Avanti Mansion. They have already taken so much stress out of our planning!

Amazing wedding and a great time planning with Avanti Mansion
As an out of town bride Avanti Mansion was amazing! They were so accommodating.
We first fell in love with the venue when we went to visit over a long weekend in October. Angie was amazing and helped us with all our questions. Even when we went back to NYC, she responded quickly to any of our concerns and even took the time to walk us through the contract over the phone.
Planning the wedding was so simple with Avanti, they were able to accommodate planning calls and skype with us, and always made sure they could meet with us when we made it into town.
The day of the wedding was flawless, everything ran smoothly, the staff was amazing. They even brought us appetizers while we were taking pictures during the cocktail hour. I was nervous since almost the entire wedding party was from out of town and a snowstorm hit the day of the rehearsal. Many of the bridesmaids and all the groomsmen couldn't make it to the rehearsal, however, the staff helped to run them through everything prior to the wedding and it went off without a hitch. We also brought in some of our décor and table decorations and the staff set up everything perfectly! The whole wedding looked amazing and the attention to detail was greatly appreciated!
About halfway through planning the wedding I also ended up switching jobs, Colleen and Angie were beyond accommodating. My time became very tight and they were great to work with and always on top of things that needed to get done, bringing to my attention any key items that needed decisions or actions.
All the guests loved the wedding and had an amazing time, we would highly recommend the crepe station if you book!
The Avanti Mansion is one of the best places to have your wedding. The staff is professional and accommodating. The grounds are stunning and the food is five star all the way. Whenever we work an event at the Avanti, we know it will be flawless and we are confident that we will be able to produce the best wedding videos ever. We would recommend this high end facility to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding and wedding reception.
The Avanti mansion is a brides dream come true venue, from its ability to perform amazing outdoor weddings to elegant indoor weddings , this is a very unique venue for any bride and groom. We have worked with the owner and staff for years and are proud to be the in house cake providers for this venue. We cannot say enough good about the quality of food and service you will receive from the Avanti staff.
Fabulous venue for weddings, with lovely ceremony areas on the property as well. Their talented staff is extremely organized and very friendly and the food is exceptional! Highly recommend this wonderful venue to any couple looking for a special place for their wedding day.
