  • We had my daughter’s wedding at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center on August 29 2020. The Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden has the most amazing grounds. It is a real hidden gem on Staten Island’s north shore and one of the prettiest places in NYC. The ceremony took place in the Tuscan Garden and the dinner reception was held at the tented Pavilion. As you can imagine, it was not easy to organize and implement a wedding in the year of COVID-19. But the professional team of event planners at Celebrate at Snug Harbor went above and beyond to make this event unfold seamlessly. They provided impeccable services from the beginning of the wedding to the final moment including the wedding planner, coordinator, bridal attendant, and food catering services. Special thanks to David N.S. Woods, Managing Director of Celebrate who helped organize the event according to the strict guidelines of NY state and NYC COVID 19 for social distancing and proper screening -- making all of t...

  • 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.

  • Erin from snug harbor is my hero. My fiancé and I had to postpone our wedding and then ultimately cancel it due to the pandemic. We have been engaged a long time and didn’t want to wait any longer so we decided to elope on our original wedding date. My original venue which was also an outdoor ceremony completely refused to let us use their grounds so I scrambled to find anywhere to make it happen. This ended up being the greatest blessing in disguise because it lead us to snug harbor. I was willing to compromise on so much but i really wanted an outdoor ceremony and Erin made just that happen and so much more. We got married in the Tuscan garden and it was gorgeous like out of a fairytale! It was even better than my original venue. Erin and Justin literally made the impossible possible. Even with a pandemic and the threat of a rainstorm looming overhead that day they made my dream come true. It was everything i wished for and more. Erin stayed with us the entire time we took photos ... Read more

  • It was truly divine intervention that we found Celebrate Snug Harbor, but my husband and I are eternally grateful that we did. Our wedding was booked at a venue in Brooklyn, and as it got to nearly a month before our date, indoor dining/gathering restrictions were still in place, and we had to come to terms with deciding on whether to postpone our event or find a different venue. My mom got the recommendation of Snug Harbor from a relative, so she called and spoke with John, relayed our sob story, and the rest is history. John and Erin (Celebrate Snug Harbor) are extremely personable and they worked their butts off to help make our wedding an event that all who attended will always remember. They coordinated with our florist, DJ, and photo/video vendors from the former venue, they kept things running on schedule as best as possible, they even golf-carted multiple family and friends around the grounds to get from the ceremony to the reception. Aside from the truly wonderful people that ... Read more

  • Not a worry throughout the planning process. The designers were responsive and helped guide us along the way planning our wedding. The day of the wedding went seamlessly- the team at the venue handled everything and were on top of it. Our family raves about the food, the ambience and more. Cannot truly express how grateful and happy we are to have chose this venue for our wedding.

  • 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 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 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 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.

  • We fell in love with Snug Harbor because it is beautiful and a great deal for the space and amenities. That remained true the entire time! Our wedding in the Tuscan garden was gorgeous and we loved the Great Hall for a daytime reception (sunlight streaming through the windows!). The bride and groom suite combo is also unusual in NYC and definitely a plus, as was the extremely helpful bridal assistant (we worked with Shelby, who was a rockstar). We contracted with Snug Harbor for our 9/1/2019 wedding in May of 2018, so we had over a year of working with various people at Snug Harbor. For the majority of that time we worked with John Ianello, who was very helpful and pretty responsive. He tended to promise a response at a certain time but provide it later than predicted, but there were always answers within a reasonable time, not falling behind the overall schedule. John also helped make everything moved along during the day of the wedding and kept things running smoothly. For food, ... Read more
