    Absolutely AMAZING!

    The Venue Fort Lauderdale exceeded our expectations for our 11/20/2020 wedding at every level! Brett & Roby took over our event 5 weeks out & the space was breathtaking. Not going to lie, I was that bride who had a hard time explaining what I liked & I have no creative mind for design which can be difficult for organizing a huge event but.. THEY ABSOLUTELY NAILED IT! From their amazing lighting & sound system to their attention to detail & ability to collaborate with our vendors, it was flawless. Everyone loved the cocktail hour & reception food.. it was truly top notch & delicious! Drinks flowed all night & the service was impeccable! I thought after our ceremony my tears were done, but as they brought us into the ballroom for a peek during cocktail hour I was speechless. Both Roby & Brett checked on us all night to ensure we had everything we needed which made both of our families feel like royalty. Anything we might have needed, they delivered with an even more special touch! We can not thank you two enough for the best night of our lives & we can’t wait to work with you again in the future! XO The Lymbers

    What are you waiting for? Book The Venue! You won't be dissapointed!

    Wedding planning is stressful, let alone wedding planning in the middle of a pandemic. If you book your event at The Venue half of this stress is going to be irrelevant, between Roby, the set-up crew, the chef, the waitstaff, and the bartenders your event and your peace of mind is in good hands. When we found out The Venue came with a “venue coordinator” I figured this would be someone around to help the day of the event, there to answer questions every now and then, and just your run of the mill venue coordinator. That is not what you get here, you get Roby who is an overall magician, who will make every part of your day come true to your vision, and throw off a flawless event. From calling me back within 5 minutes of me emailing him a question, to him running all of the logistics, every single thing Roby does will make it even better than your wildest dreams. He is literally a miracle worker. If you want people who know what they are doing, and if you want someone who runs a tight ship, and want to be in the absolute best hands, book The Venue.

    The food was delicious, the presentation was gorgeous, and all of our guests couldn’t stop raving about the apps and the cake. Every bite you and your guests will take will be mouthwatering. It’s been five days since our wedding, and I’m still dreaming about the tomato soup shooters and mini grilled cheese sandwiches.

    Every detail Roby and Brett put into the venue made it unique, special, and like an event none of our guests had ever experienced. The lighting, the linens, the tablecloths, the silverware - everything is handled for you. It is absolutely gorgeous, you get the bang for your buck, and you aren’t trying to bring in a million different vendors for all of those things. They have built a venue that gives brides, bar mitzvahs, and events the easiest plan in the world. With the structure The Venue brings, and with the attention to detail, customer service, and overall sincerity from Roby and his staff, booking your event at The Venue will take all of your stress away and will leave you with the event of your dreams
