Best night of our lives!

We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at Helsinki. Logistically this made everything seamless for our dream wintry wedding. Everything was has in house, food, drinks, setup, breakdown and the venue is so beautiful you barely need to bring in any decor.

The food and drinks were incredible. Especially the brisket (which is smoked right on the premises)! We had countless guests telling us how fantastic our family style menu was.

Austin, is the in house event coordinator at Helsinki and we really can not sing his praises enough. He created an evening that was completely stress free and fabulous. He helped us from the very beginning with incredible recommendations, to the very end when he placed my veil over my face. He made sure we had moments alone so we could catch our breath and take in the moment. We are actually disappointed we can't come up with another event to have at Helsinki so we can work with him again!

TOP NOTCH in every way!

The moment we saw the event space at Helsinki Hudson, we knew it had everything we wanted for our reception on Sept. 22. We had 65 guests and the setup was cozy and welcoming. We opted for the premium buffet which was excellent. But what really made it all so perfect was Austin鈥檚 attention to detail and level of professionalism. He answered all of my (many) questions promptly and thoroughly. I didn鈥檛 have to worry about a single thing and I can鈥檛 sing his praises enough. I highly recommend you consider holding your event at this venue. We were thrilled with the results!

Beautiful venue & amazing staff

I worked with Austin to plan our big day. He was always available and willing to answer all of my questions. On the day of our wedding everything was absolutely beautiful and I couldn鈥檛 have asked for a better day. The wait staff was amazingly attentive and Austin was running making sure everything was perfect. I can鈥檛 thank them enough!!
