I can't say enough amazing things about Avanti, and the Avanti team.Sent on 06/04/2018
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!

The perfect venue (4/13/19)
We cannot say enough good things about the Avanti Mansion. From our very first email the entire staff was incredibly responsive and willing to help and answer any and all questions we had. We immediately felt cared for by the venue, and we knew we had to book.Sent on 05/01/2019
Once we were officially paired with Angie as our wedding coordinator, who is just the sweetest person. She was incredibly supportive and helpful from the first day to the last. Her knowledge and recommendations helped make everything go smoothly and easily throughout the entire planning process and on our wedding day. We loved working with her!
Wedding planning is often a stressful experience that people dread, but that was truly not our experience with the Avanti Team. It felt like everything was taken care of for us, and we knew we were in good hands. They gave excellent recommendations for DJ and flowers, and had great insights into how to best navigate the entire planning process. They really are pros!
On our wedding day, it was like we had an entire support team at our fingertips. Everything was taken care of and anything we needed was immediately provided. The day was executed absolutely perfectly - it was truly everything we could have wanted. We can't thank the entire team enough - we had the perfect wedding!
