    We had our wedding at the Avenue and can’t thank Nancy, Chris, and Briana enough for all of the work that they did to help us have the wedding of our dreams!

    We ended up going with the brunch ceremony and reception on the rooftop lounge. The lounge seating was such a wonderful layout that allowed us to have a more intimate gathering with our guests as opposed to more traditional assigned seating at large dinner tables. As a result, we could more freely move around to talk to our guests, and our guests were able wander around and socialize rather than feeling restricted to remain in assigned seats, which ended up working out very well.

    Nancy and Chris were both wonderful to work with! They were very responsive and more than helpful with answering any questions that we had throughout the entire process.

    The morning of the wedding, there was a huge downpour and Nancy did everything she could to try to allow us to keep the ceremony out on the rooftop. Unfortunately, it started raining again right as the ceremony was about to start, and Nancy did a wonderful job making sure that everyone and everything was quickly moved inside and underneath the balcony so that the ceremony could begin. Also, Briana did an amazing job making sure that husband and I had everything that we needed throughout the day and that we were well fed. Since we had selected the brunch ceremony and reception, we ended up not having a tasting, but all of the food turned out amazing, and all of the guests were pleased as well!

    My husband and I are very happy with our decision to host our wedding at Avenue, and highly recommend it to anyone else!

    Avenue did an excellent job on our wedding reception , they are very professional, accommodating , promptly returned calls and were flexible when we needed them to be. Nancy and Chris were checking with my wife and I throughout the reception to make sure everything was going as planned .
    Avenue is Top shelf in all aspects and I would highly recommend have your party there.

    We are so grateful for Chris, Nancy, and the entire Avenue staff for helping us throughout the entire wedding planning process. We had the best time at our wedding and Avenue provided the most incredible setting for our big day. The outdoor rooftop space was amazing for our ceremony and the entire space was perfect for the style of reception that we wanted. Everything was truly remarkable!
