Since I moved to Florida almost 7 years ago, I have said I wanted to get married at The Addison. When we got engaged and were looking for venues, I never thought that The Addison would be within our budget, it is just TOO gorgeous! Luckily, there are some amazing people who work there that were able to work with us to make it happen. My in-laws first met with Grace before we stepped foot into the venue since I never thought it would be an option for us. They had nothing but great things to say and convinced us that they would work with us and we could have our wedding there. We met with Grace shortly after. I am SO happy we did!!! Grace is nothing short of amazing. She helped go through EVERY option to help us... from menus, different times of the year, days of the week, to recommending other vendors that may be helpful with sticking to our budget. We already knew how gorgeous The Addison grounds were, but after taking the tour, we were certain this is exactly where we wanted to get married. The 100 year old Banyan trees in the courtyard are the PERFECT backdrop to a ceremony, cocktail hour or reception! Every single one of our guests that had never seen the venue before were in awe by the natural beauty all around. Other than Grace being wonderful and the venue being beautiful, there is a HUGE plus that the food is incredible! At our tasting we were amazed how beautifully prepared and delicious every single item was. It was hard to choose, that’s for sure. It was a great plus getting to meet the talented Chef Patrick Duffy as well. On the day of our wedding, we were stress free when dealing with anything at the venue. We had a bridal concierge, Shelia, for the day/night. She helped with every single thing you could think of and was on top of her game all day. For example, if I needed a bobby pin to fix my hair, Shelia was there with the bobby pin before I could even ask! She made sure my husband and I were taken care of all night by getting us drinks and food (and
Love at first sight looking no longer .our wedding is set for November 2018
We just got married at The Addison and had a perfect wedding thanks to their wonderful staff and beautiful venue!
When we first visited The Addison we knew it was the perfect choice. The historic architecture and beautiful banyan trees were so unlike any other venues. They were also so inclusive since they have an amazing ceremony space, cocktail space, and reception rooms as well as providing food, drinks, tables & chairs, a wedding coordinator, preferred vendor list, etc. They definitely made planning my own wedding a lot easier since I was able to check off so much just by booking them. They even let me bring my dog for the ceremony as the flower girl/ring bearer!
Their staff is also amazing and we never had to worry about a thing. Amy was my wedding coordinator and she was absolutely wonderful. She was so quick to respond to my emails with any little question that came to mind and also helped set up my DIY decor the morning of the wedding. I had Vanessa as my bridal concierge who really looked after me and anything that I needed she was there; whether it be my change of shoes from upstairs, hair pins, water, dress adjusting.. absolutely anything. She even helped fix my dress when it tore during a dance session. She was an absolute dream and made the day stress free.
The food & drinks were so amazing. We did a brunch buffet with a ham carving station, chicken & waffles, french toast, eggs, potatoes, & fresh fruit. So good! Also did a brunch cocktail package.
The Addison is known for putting on lavish events but we had a intimate (50 people) wedding with simple decor (I DIY'd everything) and our final bill from The Addison came out under $10k for a Sunday morning wedding. So yes they have weddings where people spends 10's of thousands but don't rule them out if you have a smaller budget, they may be able to work with you depending on the day & time of wedding and reception room you choose.
Look no further - the Addison is the PERFECT venue! The architecture is so unusual for the sometimes-flashy area of Boca and has a real old-world charm to it that is incredibly unique! That's just the start of it... The staff at the Addison are second to none, the food is the best I've ever had, and the vendors they work with are exceptional. Truly, the Addison delivered a wedding so far above what I ever imagined I still am in disbelief. I am American but live in Sydney, Australia so they managed to plan a full wedding with me from the literal opposite side of the world seamlessly. I can assure you this is only accomplished by a team who's truly dedicated to making your day special!
I was originally booked into a different venue after a family friend recommended it. One month into planning, I discovered the Addison through vendor photos and was in love. I called to see if my date was available and it wasn't. I was so bummed! I tried three more times over the next month with no luck. I'm not sure how, but the last time I called they informed me my date had just opened up hours beforehand and worked with me to lock it in! With me 16 hours ahead and a 24 hour window for booking, it took a village to make sure it happened and they went the extra mile to make sure it did. That's when I knew I made the best decision to change venues!
I had Amy Hoodack as my event manager and I can't say enough about her! I'm a rather detail-oriented person and was probably bridezilla at times (sorry, Amy!), but she was always gracious, responsive, helpful and professional every time we spoke or exchanged emails. She even gave up her personal time on more than one occasion to speak to me over the phone as the time difference made it hard to do so during business hours. The Addison hosts multiple weddings every week and yet she still treated me like mine was the only wedding. That experience is priceless!
Overall, I would recommend to anyone and everyone!!!
From the moment I stepped on site, I knew this had to be the place I got married! I cannot thank Helene Parsons and her team enough. For 2 years, we met with her, planned with her, made special requests, asked questions and she answered every single one. The venue was completely lit up like a Christmas tree and it felt like being on a movie set. We had our ceremony under the two beautiful banyan trees and then went inside the main dining hall for the reception. Sheila was at my every beck and call, constantly asking me if I needed drinks or food and would hold my dress, shoes or bouquet when I needed it. It was an absolute dream! One of my main concerns was the space and if it would be able to hold our estimated 150 guests, well we ended up having a total of 123 and though the space could definitely hold more, it was the perfect amount and the dance floor was big enough for everyone to be out there....and they were! Thank you so much to everyone at the Addison!
I worked with Cindy at the Addison and she was exceptional. It is clear that her and her team are highly experienced in creating incredible events. They were professional, always quick to respond, and very helpful throughout the wedding planning process. The actual wedding day is were they shine!! - they provide you with not only a day of coordinator to work with your vendors but a bridal concierge, and on top of them all of the staff is there to help you have the most fun and most importantly stress free wedding day possible. If you are looking for a gorgeous venue with incredible staff in South Florida then this is the place for you!
Grace Eurglunes was my daughter's wedding coordinator and she was fabulous. She was very easy to talk to and we never felt like we were bothering her whenever we emailed or called. She was thorough and on the day of the wedding she did everything we had asked her to do. The Addison is a beautiful venue and my daughter's wedding turned out perfectly! Thank you Grace for everything!!
The Addison was a perfect venue to have my daughter’s wedding and reception. The staff is very helpful and the facility itself is beautiful. We extended the reception an extra hour and without any hesitation from the staff they agreed. If you want to be assured that the food is tasty and that everything from the ceremony, to the cake cutting and even down to the speeches will get done in an orderly fashion, the Addison is your place! My daughter and I couldn’t be more happy with this venue!
To simply put it - our wedding was flawless from start to finish! It was even more beautiful and perfect than I could have imagined.
Our experience with the addison, our coordinator Sarah Varda and the entire team the day of our wedding was amazing. So hands on, easy to communicate with and caring. And the food prepared by their onsite chef was absolutely delicious.
There wasn't a moment I felt stressed the entire day - and as bride that's huge! I can't say enough good things about this venue. I mean, you know they did a good job when your guests can't stop talking about how amazing your wedding venue and food was - even a month after your wedding!
Don't miss out - book them for your special day or event!
The Addison was a perfect place to get married, everyone was sweet and helpful in anything I or my husband needed. The staff did a amazing job.
Our wedding was so amazing- everything we wanted and more! As our wedding was a destination wedding, the Addison made it so easy to plan with their very responsive and flexible team. The food was great, and space is so unique. We loved every moment!
Don’t even know where to begin. We are two women in love for 18 years. We had such an anaJbv experience with The Addison. I was a little worried when 3 months before my wedding they let go of our wedding planner, Lisa and replaced us with Amy. But, what a blessing in disguise!!!! From Amy being so attentive to our needs, changes you name it, to the staff but most of all.... THE FOOD!! I have had every person invited tell me it’s the best food they’ve ever had at any wedding. Make sure you get the pork chop as an entree and the grilled cheese as an app! Thank you for truly giving us the best day of our lives!
Elaine - Thank you so much for your sweet and thoughtful review. It couldn't make us happier knowing that you had a spectacular experience. Congratulations on your marriage! We wish you all the happiness and success. ...and your pictures are gorgeous!
Thanks to Helene and her staff of hard working dedicated employees.
From beginning to end and through the rain, the wedding was just beautiful. you would never have known it was pouring. The ceremony was moved inside and was just beautiful. The room was spectacular, and staff were over and beyond professional. This was the most wonderful dessert table, everyone was amazing. I could go on and on. We were in the best hands at The Addison and we are so thankful for the support and comfort we had in this fabulous planning process. Thank you, The Addison and Helene. I could not imagine having it any place else.
So happy with this venue and their level of professionalism! As a stressed out bride during the last two months of planning, Sarah Varda really went beyond my expectations and made sure I had a perfect day from start to finish. Although the venue can be a little pricey, it is worth every penny and I have no regrets in choosing this location for my wedding day. They also provide a bridal concierge (I had Aliyah), which was great. All I had to do on my big day was arrive, put on my dress, and they did the rest! They made sure I had everything I needed for me to be able to enjoy my day without having to worry about anything else. I am still getting compliments on how great the food and service was. Thank you Addison for making my day amazing and beyond perfect!!
When my fiancé e-mailed me the information for the Addison I didn’t even think of calling them because I just thought it would be over our budget. After looking at 4 other venues and almost choosing one of them my fiancé asked about the Addison and I had to set up an appointment. Our planner is Grace, she gave us a tour of the Addison and we fell in love with the place it had character. We were excited about the different rooms and have decided to make one of the rooms a kids room. We are still in budget and I truly cannot wait to get married July of next year.
I drive past The Addison everyday on my way to work and thought it would be the most amazing place to get married but assumed it would be over my budget. It turned out to be the only venue we saw and signed the contract the next day. I had so many compliments about our wedding. The staff were very professional and attentive. Lisa our coordinator had great advice and would respond promptly to emails and texts 7 days a week. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
The Addison is an absolute top notch venue for the perfect wedding. We planned our entire wedding from New York (sans planner) so working with professional vendors was really important to us. From start to finish, the Addison was amazing. I really wanted to have a wedding in S. Fla that could provide an outdoor area for cocktails and an indoor (a/c) space for a reception while maintaining a gorgeous ambiance. Of the numerous places we visited, looked at online, called, and visited in person, the Addison was one of the few that provided everything without being just another country club/ golf course, or beach front hotel. The majestic banyan trees and Spanish architecture were unique from all of the other venues within our price range without falling short of some of the more (ridiculously expensive) venues that could have given us that. Kourtney was fantastic, SO easy to work with, and would respond to my emails almost immediately every time. In fact, her responsiveness made me choose the Addison in the first place as the other contending venue took over a week to respond to me after we had flown down to Florida to try to make our decision!! They worked with our timeline, accommodated our signature drink which needed a special ingredient, and even had the chef prepare a special vegetarian plate that I had requested off the menu (hands down the best eggplant parmesan I have ever tasted--and more than 2x the number of guests I predicted ordered it!!). Their a la cart menu was superb and made customizing our wedding so fun and easy--the only hard part was deciding which delicious options to select. Our guests are still raving about the delicious food and impeccable service. The Addison truly knows how to serve and treats you like royalty. Shout out to Shiela, who was so sweet and helpful and tended to our every need. There's a word limit here, but the Addison blew our minds and gave us the Perfect wedding that was well beyond our expectations. CHOOSE THEM!!!!
I do not have enough words to rave about The Addison and it's staff. From the moment we walked in for our tour to the day after we the wedding were wow'd. We worked with Helene, and although she is tough cookie, she has a heart of gold and loved working with her throughout the whole journey! Our guest are still talking about the food, which Helene told us would happen! The day of the wedding it poured like no other; but just an hour before the wedding it stopped, THANK GOD! And everything turned out UH-MAZING! We had our dream wedding and it couldn't have happened with the help of Helene, our bridal assistant Emily (SHE WAS INCREDIBLE) and the rest of the staff. Thank you for everything!
The Addison was an absolute perfect place to hold a wedding. Lisa Sambataro has to be the most amazing, fabulous. professional, nice, accommodating, qualified. spectacular wedding planner known to man. She made EVERYTHING absolutely perfect! The food was outstanding. The staff was first class. Every single worker was there to make sure everything was on cue. The space for getting ready before the wedding is perfect. The vendors they recommend are superb. The setting for the wedding was just right. There was not a hiccup to be heard. If I had a choice of a 1000 places I would have chosen The Addison all over again however it would be a MUST to have the absolute best by having Lisa. I am VERY picky and very critical of everything and I must say once again this is by far the most beautiful place to have a wedding. First class staff from head to toe!
One of the most beautiful places I've ever been with the kindest staff!
From the moment I stepped onto The Addison I knew it was the one. From the beautiful trees to kind employees that treat you like a true bride. Grace was amazing at helping us with our budget. I have a champagne taste on a boxed wine budget and Grace made it happen. My wedding is April 2nd 2017 and I truly cannot wait to marry my best friend underneath those beautiful trees. The food is beyond amazing, as well as their reception rooms. They help you with all your needs and answer back to any emails very efficiently and quickly. BEST VENUE EVER!
I am so glad we chose the Addison as our wedding venue. Living in Miami and having them be in Boca I thought was going to be a bit of a headache getting things in order for the wedding especially since I was doing all my own wedding planning but it was all so smooth & perfect! I had Kourtney as my coordinator and she was so amazing ! She helped me every step of the way even when I had no idea when I should be doing and would send her what seemed like a million emails. The day of she helped calm me down and run through everything to make sure I was okay and you also get a day of coordinator which we had Sheila and she was so amazing and funny! She helped get everything done and on time and she made sure we had time to eat and me & my fiance get some alone time in between the ceremony & rehearsal which was so nice. I highly recommend the Addison for anyone who is looking for a venue.
My husband and I were married at The Addison in March, 2017 and would not change a single thing about our wedding. You will not find a more beautiful venue or professional staff anywhere! Our coordinator, Lisa, helped us every step of the way and made planning our destination wedding a breeze.
WOW!!!! The Addison is simply a spectacular wedding venue! My husband and I got married there on March 25, 2017 and had our dream wedding! We looked all over town for the perfect venue and once we found the Addison, we knew it was the right location immediately! We did not want a cookie cutter wedding and the beautiful ambiance of the Banyan trees and courtyard made the perfect location for the ceremony and cocktail hour. The guests are shaded by the trees during the ceremony, so the temperature was very comfortable. The reception areas are equally amazing and the food is that of a five star restaurant. I can't tell you how many guests are still talking about the filet minion and sea bass, saying it was the best they ever had! One of the things that sets this venue apart from all the rest, is that they do weddings and events exclusively. So, they have everything for both the wedding ceremony and reception down to a science and are prepared for anything that may occur. The bustle on my dress broke after our first dance, and the bartender immediately took me to the bathroom, whipped out a sewing kit and sewed it back on sending me back out to the dance floor in less than 10 minutes time!!! Now that is just exceptional service and preparedness! You do not need to hire a wedding planner, as the Addison will provide one for you. HELENE PARSONS was our wedding coordinator and we cannot say enough amazing things about her!!! She was right there by our side all along the way to guide us and make sure we were on schedule throughout the planning process. She thought of many things that we may have missed and her advice was invaluable to creating our perfect wedding! She is a first class lady all the way, and made sure that our special day went off without a hitch! We cannot thank you enough HELENE!! You are SIMPLY THE BEST!!! A special THANK YOU to the entire Addison team, you are all EXCEPTIONAL!!
I was married at The Addison March 2017! Everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful and I am so happy we decided to go with them. I was nervous about the cost and that it would be out of our budget but after seeing it in person we just knew we had to make it work! Our coordinator Kourtney was so easy to work with- super friendly and easy to work with. Always available whenever I had any questions. The food was so delicious! My guests are still talking about it!
