    Flexible and Super Attentive - So Happy we chose Avenir

    Very glad we chose Avenir as our venue for our wedding. Our coordinator Sydney Davis was with us at each step of the way, from when we first booked back in early March 2020 (yep...) and throughout the whole pandemic, until we were vaccinated and guidelines were relaxed! They worked with us to postpone our original date, make modifications to our original plans, and were super attentive in the weeks leading up to the wedding date.

    A huge thank you to Sydney and all the staff at Avenir for making our special day come together so smoothly. We were so stressed up until the day of, where everything took off without a hitch! Our guests loved the food, the spacious venue, and were SO excited to finally dance again!

    My Wedding Day at the Avenir

    I just got married here, the whole experience was just awesome. My wedding planner, Sydney Davis, was there for me thru all the planning, always helpful, kept me informed, the rest of the staff, Lauren, the wait staff, chef, bartenders, everyone involved, were great, attentive. The guests loved the place, the food, the music. The preferred vendors are all great, from the flowers to the music. I was proud to have my wedding at such a beautiful place. I couldn't have pulled this off without their help.
