Made my wedding dreams come true!
The Venezia made all of my fairytale wedding dreams come true and more. My husband and I got married this New Years Eve (12/31/2019) at the Venezia. We had both our ceremony & reception at the Venezia. Our ceremony was slightly unique in being that it took place on the stairs in the foyer, followed by a cocktail hour in the foyer, and then a reception in the main ballroom ending at 1am. I don’t even know where to start with how amazing EVERYTHING at the Venezia was and I want to make sure I include everything!
Venue: The Venezia is absolutely beautiful, from its location on the harbor overlooking Boston’s skyline, to the stunning white marble foyer with its beautiful grand staircase, to the elegant ballroom that overlooks the harbor with floor to ceiling windows. Everything about this venue is truly breathtaking!
Food: The food is amazing. I have had so many guests that are still calling and telling me how amazing the food was. Our photography (Mark Davidson Photography) did a really great job of capturing some really great shots of the incredible food displays that Venezia put out and I will attach them to this review. Everything was delicious.
Service: I have also had so many guests calling me telling how incredible the service was at the Venezia. So many guests have commented on how attentive the staff was to everything, they never felt like they were looking around to find someone to help them. I had a few guests that are actually in the catering/event field and they were among the ones commenting about how impressed they were with the service they received at the Venezia.
The day of, we had 2 personal attendants, Frances and Rob, that were with the bridal party in the bridal suite prior to the ceremony until the end of the night. They were incredible! Frances was so helpful in the bridal suite helping me and my bridesmaids and making sure we didn’t need anything and running back and forth between the bridal suite upstairs to the room where the groom & groomsmen were. And Rob was seriously amazing from getting the keys to open the gate to the dock so we could take pictures out there, to making sure I had my favorite beer (Angry Orchard) he was just amazing!
Brenda: And finally, there is not one word that can describe Brenda Seekins, the leader of the entire show, because she truly is a super woman. From the very beginning, she is by your side guiding you through the entire wedding planning process. She is not only so nice, but she makes you feel like you are the only bride that she working with! She really spends so much time working with you so that you are getting the wedding of all your dreams.
I made all of my centerpieces and the majority of all of our wedding decor, and the weekend before the wedding, she spent an entire afternoon, going over everything single centerpiece and piece of decor to make sure that it was all set up perfectly.
She really went above and beyond when she re-adjusted her personal schedule, and came in on her day off to run my wedding rehearsal because she wanted to make sure that everything was perfect for my big day. And I had a huge bridal party, 11 bridesmaids and 11 groomsmen, with the ceremony taking place on the grand staircase in the foyer. So this was not your traditional ceremony, and required a lot of attention to make sure that everyone understood what they were doing so that everything looked good.
And when I tell you the ceremony was incredible, it was out of this world. I will admit, I was a little worried that it just wasn’t going to look good or something would go wrong, but it was perfect and better than I ever could have imagined! The day of Brenda just does it ALL and somehow makes it look effortless (I will also include pictures from the ceremony). She truly is a badass boss woman! There’s a reason why she has this job, because no one else could do it as incredible as her!
I just want to thank everyone at the Venezia, the entire staff, Brenda, and anyone who helped make our day so incredible! I couldn’t have dreamt of a more perfect day and that because of everyone at the Venezia!Sent on 01/16/2020

My Husband and I had our wedding at Venezia Boston in August and it was beautiful! This was a busy year for my husband and I, but nevertheless we were able to plan our wedding in 8 months. From the time we had our tour at Venezia to the minute we said I do, we felt as if we had support every step of the way thanks to Brenda. Brenda was great!! She was very responsive via phone and email in answering all of our many questions, suggesting vendors, and was able to meet with us when we needed.
The day of the wedding, we had attendants helping us with anything we needed (Thanks Robert And Frances) and of course Brenda was there coordinating and making sure everything went smoothly! I got ready at a hotel and finishing touches were done in the bridal suite, which is really nice! It’s a cozy and classy bridal suite large enough for our bridal party and us. The furniture there is classy enough for photos and their large mirror is a must have for preparation photos.
We were blessed to have beautiful weather on our wedding day. Although there is no outdoor ceremony space at Venezia, there are different indoor options. If an outdoor ceremony is a must for you, this will not be the place. Our ceremony was lovely! We were married on the grand staircase. We still had plenty of outdoor photo opportunities as this wedding venue overlooks the water and has a beautiful gazebo!
The reception ballroom is very elegant. Whatever theme you’re going for, you can achieve. The ballroom is large enough to accommodate a huge wedding, but still fitting for a small wedding like ours. Not much decor is needed at all since it’s so beautiful, so even the smallest accents are enough to achieve the look you want.
There’s plenty of space to dance on the dance floor and you have the added bonus of an outdoor deck for guests to mingle and get some fresh air.
We were very happy with our choice to get married there, so if you’re looking to get married in Boston, you should at least make an appointment and check it out. Hope you love it as much as we did!

It was perfect!
I would highly recommend Venezia to anyone planning their wedding. From the first meeting, they responded and took care of my every need. My guest raved about the food and atmosphere. The entire night, my husband and I were treated like royalty. Thank you Brenda and the entire team for the wedding of my dreams!Sent on 06/26/2019
