Coltivare Events is a customizable, wheelchair-accessible wedding venue in Ithaca, New York, that aims to create a lasting memory for every couple. They’ve meshed an industrial modern feel with contemporary rustic features like reclaimed wood accents, tin-paneled “ceiling clouds,” and vintage lighting fixtures.
Facilities and Capacity
As one of the largest wedding venues in Tompkins County, Coltivare Events has three event spaces that can accommodate varying numbers of guests. The ballroom can host catered events for over 250 guests; the restaurant seats up to 110 guests; and the wine cellar, a private dining area, is able to seat up to 30 guests. Each event space is unique and can comfortably fit weddings of any size (so your event of 30 doesn’t have to sit in a space built for over 200).
Along with wedding ceremonies, Coltivare Events can host bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties, receptions, and rehearsal dinners. Couples have the option to choose from Coltivare’s in-house catering or outside vendors of their choice. Coltivare has chairs, decor, and tables you can choose from, as well as a variety of services to make your day what you’ve always imagined:
Coltivare Events has a selection of meal styles for couples to choose from that fit weddings of every type, including buffet, family-style, plated, and stations.

A Exceptional Rehearsal Dinner
Lauren and the whole Coltivare team helped us put on a fantastic rehearsal dinner—zero complaints. Planning was easy – even though it was largely by email and phone, from 3,000 miles away (we live in San Francisco). Lauren graciously handled our various changes to timing, numbers, and dietary restrictions up until the week beforehand. The food was top-notch, featuring great appetizers and superlative entrees. Our family and friends are foodies and everyone was impressed and satisfied, across the board (not sure how they nailed the timing on 30 beef tenderloins, but it was perfect!). The space was comfortable and convenient, and it was great having a dedicated bar and bartender. Last but not least, the waitstaff was very professional, friendly, and accommodating. We had some last-minute issues with our menus and seating (our fault) and Lauren’s team was right there to help out and our guests never knew a thing! Thank you to Lauren and the entire Coltivare team. We will be back next time we’re in Ithaca!Sent on 09/14/2019
