    Would have my wedding here 100x over!

    We highly recommend The Commons if you are looking for a classy and elegant venue! Kristi and Gianna made us feel like family and we can’t thank them enough for making our day so special. Gianna was our day-of coordinator and she is an absolute rockstar!! So sweet and always on her A game from the day we first reached out to them to book a tour to the day after the wedding when we said our “goodbyes”. Guests were blown away at how beautiful the space was and people said it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. It will be a day we will never forget and cannot thank them enough for everything!

    Amazing wedding at the Commons

    We had our reception at the Commons three weeks ago, and it was absolutely perfect. First of all, the venue itself is beautiful, and doesn't need much extra decorations. Kristi and her team are true professionals. They helped us every step of the way, answering all my questions, and were there the day of the wedding to make sure nothing missed a beat. The food was incredible, and our guests kept telling us how it was some of the best wedding food they've ever had. A lot of venues we looked at made me feel like they were trying to upcharge you for everything, and honestly felt like they were trying to take advantage of you to make an extra buck, but I never felt this way at the Commons. I wholeheartedly recommend this venue for anyone looking in the North Shore area!

    The Commons is one of those magical venues that wedding dreams are made of! When I first saw it, I was a little girl, maybe 13 years old at most - a couple of years after they first opened their doors as a wedding venue. I wanted to have my wedding there! Although that never came to fruition, I am delighted to have both attended several weddings and photographed an amazing wedding at The Commons as a professional photographer. The service is wonderful and they truly go out of their way to create an impeccable experience for each couple! I highly recommend this venue, it's one of the absolute best on the North Shore!

    I have so many brides that have gotten married here and are getting married there this year. I love living so close by because I get to see so many getting married outside as well! They do an amazing job!

    We see a lot of venues, and a lot of staff and event managers and this is one area that sets The Commons apart from the competition. Let's say you looked past the stunning event space, the amazing grounds, and the magazine perfect setting. The next thing you would find is one of the most detail oriented and courteous groups of people I've had to pleasure of working with. Starting with the event managers and all the way through to the bar staff, everyone always has a smile on their face and I always see them laughing and enjoying what they do to help families and guests on a special day. Specifically, I have worked a dozen times with Johanna and she is simply amazing. My grandfather used to tell me to always plan and be two steps ahead. I can tell you that he would love Johanna because if the average person is two steps ahead, Johanna is 10 steps ahead! You can not go wrong with this venue and staff and we highly recommend them.
