  • Snug Harbor was terrific in their attention to detail. We didn't have to hire a wedding planner. John and Theresa took care of everything. Our guests loved the Chinese Scholar's Garden. It was a magical setting. The food was excellent and plentiful. We couldn't be happier. Guests were raving about it.

  • Absolutely wonderful experience working with the Celebrate at Snug Harbor team, specifically John Ianniello Jr. and Theresa Tortorella. We had been searching for the right venue for over a year and a half before we fell in love with this one. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the food was AMAZING (and you can’t say that about many wedding venues - plus so many guests complimented the food, not one complaint), the way they set up everything was beautiful, they are organized and responsive and clearly answered all my questions in the planning process, the staff are really pleasant, my bridal attendant Shelby was absolutely a godsend and was really by my side helping me through every step of the process and she was super pleasant, professional, and helpful...I just can’t say enough good things about them between the planning process and how it all came together into an absolutely beautiful event. So many guests told us this was the best wedding they’d ever been to. I am so full ... Read more

  • I don't even have the words to describe my wedding experience with Celebrate at Snug Harbor! First off, I knew the venue was the right choice because, come on, it's breathtaking Snug Harbor - who wouldn't want to get married at a botanical garden? Secondly, the staff is top notch! Darryl, my amazing and talented chef whipped up a custom menu just to make our wedding special, unique, and out-of-the box. Our guests were so impressed with the food. Not only that, we had everything served family style to create a sense of family and community, because what is a wedding if not a union of two families, and both of ours are HUGE. This was an excellent way to achieve just that. Erin and Theresa were true magicians with how they work. Both were so patient with me during my hectic planning process and they honestly know how to make a bride feel special. It's almost like they were inside my head the whole time and knew what I was imagining and made it come to life! This was not just another venue... Read more

  • We recently had my oldest daughter’s wedding at Celebrate Snug Harbor and my guests are still raving about the amazing time they had. From the start, our Event Manager, John Ianniello, was an incredible help in guiding us through picking the best vendors to work with, to selecting just the right menu items. He helped my wife with many intricate details, as she was planning the event while my daughter and future son-in-law were traveling the country. Theresa Tortorella, our Event Coordinator, was like a member of the family, working diligently in planning the floorplans and best options for all of the little details that no one tells you about when planning a wedding. The food was on another level. We come from a family of foodies and the cuisine left our family members speechless. I would strongly recommend having that one special day at Celebrate Snug Harbor.

    Dear David, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this excellent review. We really appreciate how much you loved attending and planning your daughter's wedding here at Celebrate. We agree, we are so lucky to have John and Theresa on our team. Thank you for helping to share the word about us. We’re here for you and your family anytime! Best, The Celebrate Team

  • I hosted a bridal shower in the tented pavilion May 2019. I will start by saying I am extremely picky and my expectations were the same as from my very own wedding (for reference I am comparing to an iconic Manhattan venue.) John and his team surpassed that experience Not one detail was over looked and they were so incredibly involved, invested and truly cared about every aspect as if it were their own personal event. For example, John created a signature drink table for us and it was spectacular, apparent to all the effort put in on the “extras” Service - waitstaff was amazing !! No one had an empty drink or was ever in need of anything, someone was always there. The attention to detail was exceptional and they helped keep the party flowing nicely which is important. Food- this is not standard “venue” food. The chef and John work to come up with creative options. This is something you do not experience at most venues. Ambiance - dreamy. The tent was new and ma...

  • I can’t express enough how perfect our wedding day was from start to finish at Celebrate at Snug Harbor! We had our ceremony in the white garden, cocktail hour in the Chinese Scholars Garden and reception in the gorgeous, Pinterest-esque Tented Pavilion. All of my guests commented on how beautiful the entire grounds are and most said something to the effect of, “I didn’t even know this existed!” Which is exactly what I was going for. If you are looking for a unique venue with incredible catering and a team that will support you from the start of your wedding planning process, to finish, Celebrate is your place. Erin & Theresa could not have been more helpful, knowledgeable, honest, professional, accommodating and most of all FUN in guiding us in our wedding planning at Celebrate. Every question and email was answered so quickly and because of how much we communicated over the course of months leading up to the wedding, it really made the actual day of so stress free and eas...

  • I had my wedding at the Chinese Scholar's Garden. My wife and I wanted our wedding at the CSG the moment we saw it. John and Theresa are great to work with. They helped out a lot during the whole wedding planning process and on the big day. Many of our guests complimented us on the food and said the wedding was beautiful. I would recommend this wedding venue to anyone.

  • On August 3rd, 2019 my family held our parents 40th Wedding Anniversary / Retirement Celebration at Snug Harbor. The dinner was absolutely AMAZING. From the planning stage to the date of the event John Ianniello Jr. (Senior Catering & Event Specialist) was a pleasure to work with. He was able to execute and co-ordinate to ensure that the guests of honor and all guests had a great time. The food and cake was delicious. The venue (Upper Great Hall) is breathtaking! We fell in love with it when he first showed us the space and eventually moved the dinner from the date we originally had in mind to 8/3/19 just to use that room. Snug Harbor is one of the unique places on Staten Island and is a wonderful location that should be explored when planning a wedding, dinner, etc.

  • We celebrated our daughter's Sweet 16 here this past weekend. What an amazing experience. I cannot say enough good things about this venue. from the moment she looked at the Great hall she was in love with the space. John, Theresa, and the entire staff made her dreams a reality. The food, the service, and just the sheer beauty if this room were amazing.

  • I cannot thank John & Theresa enough for helping me plan my dream wedding in only four months! When I had come to them with the idea of a daytime wedding, they had so many ideas for me and helped make our event magical. We chose to get married at Snug Harbor and then have an early Sunday wedding dinner under their tented pavilion. Our family was blown away by the beauty of Snug Harbor and continue to rave about the passed hors d’oeuvres as well as the passed desserts. Everything was absolutely perfect, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with John and Theresa as well as the rest of the Celebrate team!

  • I don't even know where to begin, I got married at snug harbor on June 2nd, 2019 and to sum up all my emotions into one word, it was breathtaking. I booked this venue a few days after I took the tour, the groups had massive potential to be turned into the "greenery" wedding that I dreamed about. From an beautiful Chinese schoolar garden to the spectacular tuscan garden and a simple yet sophisticated tented pavilion, I knew my wedding had to be there. A few months before the wedding as any bride would feel I was all over the place, obviously beginning to doubt my venue, photographer and even wedding dress. I never felt so safe, taken care of and relaxed than when John Lanniello (wedding coordinator) grabbed my hand and said "enjoy your day, I got it from here". I get very emotional about it because my mind was a mess leading up to my wedding day and him and his dedicated team made it happen so effortless and impeccable. I want to thank Snug Harbor's team from the caters, bartenders, co... Read more

  • I wish I could give Snug Harbor a good review because the place is really beautiful BUT their wedding team is non-responsive and it became clear over the past month that they did not want to host our wedding. Our initial communication began 7/10 with Marisa. We inquired about wedding packages and the option of having just the wedding there. Marisa confirmed that she was able to get approval for the wedding-only if we wanted to go with that option. So we set up a time to visit and she looped in Ian who (unfortunately) would be our primary contact from then on. We met with Ian on 7/28 and had a great conversation with him and his assistant who gave us a tour of the property - we even met the owner! During our meeting we spoke about 3 options (wedding only, wedding + cocktail hour, and wedding + cocktail + reception) and he promised he would send us the options and pricing within the coming week. Fast forward to 8/6 , we didn't receive anything so we sent a follow up email. Ian replied ... Read more

  • Our wedding was absolutely beautiful, and we were lucky to have amazing weather and be in such an incredible space. The gardens and the Great Hall were magnificent, and the food was *amazing*. Get the rack of lamb; our guests were raving about it. Our day was so special, but we had a number of snafus to be aware of: 1) our original event planner at Snug stop answering our emails and was mysteriously fired--something we didn't find out until our next payment was due. 2) John, who took over, was great, but even though we were told by our original contact that there was only one wedding per day, that wasn't true. There were more, and John ended up working that one, so the day of the wedding we met two people who were going to be working it for the first time; John never mentioned this to us in all of our correspondence. 3) Because we were not told there was more than one wedding, the valet parking we paid for sent people to the wrong wedding site, and one of our friends ended up missin...
