    Deb is the best!

    The Hellenic Center was the perfect venue for our wedding. We fell in love with the property the moment we saw it! It is well kept both inside and out. We were a COVID reschedule from September 2020 to September 2021. Deb was easy to work with and accommodating every step along the way! She was responsive and organized and put our minds at ease. Our wedding was everything we could have imagined and more! I would highly recommend this venue!

    The Hellenic Center's reply:

    Many thanks to you and Adam for making my job easy! After all of the time we spent planning, speculating and pivoting I will miss all of my COVID couples. Wishing you all the best! d.

    Winter Wedding!

    We got married at The Hellenic Center this past February. My husband and I fell instantly in love with the entire venue when we toured it for the first time. It was everything we wanted and more! Even though our assigned coordinator changed midstream, it was a seamless change. Deb was our day of coordinator and she was awesome! She was so easy going. She answered all my questions and really put me at ease. They have great off season pricing and the mansion was a perfect setting for our winter wedding!

    The Hellenic Center's reply:

    Thank you Emily! It was wonderful working with you and Nick to plan your celebration. We wish you all the best in your future! deb
