  • I spent a lot of money on my wedding and I expect to get what I paid for. Many things were discussed previous to my wedding and during my wedding many things were went back on DURING my wedding. Elizabeth was very unprofessional. She had a loud argument infront of all of my guests right after my ceremony. Which was very disrespectful. We never saw her after the argument. My bridesmaids were all very upset how they and myself and husband were treated by her . Many of my guests had many things to complain about her. I was already stressed because it was my wedding but I was even more stressed because a lot of last minute problems that could have been avoided the morning of. We reserved our wedding in the beginning of the year and they stated they booked everything since we were in advance. We showed up 2 days before the wedding to find out we had no room reservations. And we were thrown into a small room even though we had a large suite included in our contract. The other people we went ... Read more

  • I couldn't have agreed more with my husband. It was better than we expected. Our guest raved about the food the decor and the atmosphere. Thanks Elizabeth for all you did.

  • Genetti Hotel and Conference center made sure our wedding was so beautiful. The pricing was very reasonable and we had a lot of food options! Elizabeth and the staff at Genetti's made our wedding amazing. Elizabeth allowed me to do almost everything I wanted to do, and worked with me to make sure it was so beautiful. Have your wedding here you won't regret it!

  • Thank you to Elizabeth! After a day of taste testing different venues we arrived at Genetti Hotel. We were looking for a venue that had a hotel within the same building due to the fact that 90% of our guests were from out of town. I knew we had found what we had been looking for after our initial meeting with Elizabeth, not only was the food amazing & the venue extremely clean and beautiful, our ultimate deciding factor was Elizabeth herself. We no longer lived in the area so we were planning the wedding long distance from Chicago. One of the most important things to us was being able to work with someone at the venue who would be able to respond to our calls and emails whenever we had questions (believe me there was a million). Not only would Elizabeth return my email/calls as soon as possible, she never seemed annoyed with the number or times we called/ emailed. She was so nice and helpful. The venue was absolutely gorgeous with so many ballrooms to choose from, we had a hard time pi... Read more

  • Genetti's Oyster wedding was amazing! Lindsay was fabulous helping us with every little detail to get it perfect, and she succeeded! The up-lighting was amazing and the room looked just like how I pictured the perfect wedding to be. The food was OUTSTANDING! I loved the vallet for our guests, butter service, suite for 2 nights for my husband and I, and having everything included so we only had to pay one price for food, drinks, linens, chairs, cake, flowers, and everything else that was included that is typically not. Guests still keep telling my husband and I that our wedding was one of the best wedding they have ever been too. I highly recommend an Oyster wedding for a beautiful, elegant wedding!

  • My Oyster wedding was simply magical! Lindsay, the wedding planner, was absolutely fantastic! I cannot rave about her enough. The planning process was stress free due to her expertise. She is extremely detail orientated and every request I had was met with open arms and enthusiasm. She is truly the BEST in the industry – it is no wonder David Tutera picked her to shadow him a few months ago! You can tell she loves what she does and it shows through her work and dedication to making her brides happy. Whether it be via phone or email, Lindsay was always available and prompt when corresponding with me. My mind was always at ease knowing she was at the forefront of the planning. The food, décor, cake, flowers, and ceremony space all exceeded my expectations. The staff was professional and courteous and our head waiter, Michael was fantastic! He went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed throughout the night. I was having issues bustling my dress and Michael went to... Read more

We strongly suggest that you should book your wedding there. It will be perfect!!

  • We just had our Oyster wedding at Genettis and it was fabulous! It is not the same Genettis that used to host your high school prom! The up lighting, table setting, and decor was beautiful and the food was delicious; everyone raved about it for days after. However the best part for me as a bride was Lindsay and the staff's attention and service. Lindsay made me feel at ease right from our first meeting. She helped us build our perfect package and was always available when I needed her. I can honestly say that I was not stressed over the reception because I knew she was handling it. Lindsay was incredibly helpful and then there was Michael! Thanks to Michael We never had an empty drink or empty plate. He also made sure to make our families feel special as well. All in all, great great experience

  • Our reception was so much more than what we had thought it would be. It was absolutely beautiful!!! The food was fantastic. The service was outstanding! Lindsay was always available by phone or email or in person for any questions or concerns. There was nothing that could have made our wedding day any better than it was. It truly was perfect!

  • My Oyster wedding really was a DREAM COME TRUE! Lindsey helped take all the stress out of wedding planning (at least the reception part) She never told me or my husband "no" Whatever we asked no matter how bizarre or unique she made it happen. Oyster really is the best bang for your buck. They throw in soo many extras to make your day unique or special. The cocktail hour in the Oyster restaurant was just amazing. I'll share with you the Oyster Experience.. When you and your guests arrive you are greeted with a Marilyn Monroe martini in your hands. Cocktail hour is amazing in the Oyster Restaurant and around the pool. The Hors d'oeuvres were delicious and decorated with orchids. ! Then we proceed into the reception with is BREATHTAKING! When they announce you for the first time in public as bride and groom they shoot confetti sticks which creates such an awesome effect! EVERYONE COMPLIMENTED THE FOOD AND WAS soo impressed because they felt like they had their own private waiter/waitress... Read more

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about my experience at Genetti's. Lindsay was wonderful to work with. She would get back to me immediately about any questions. I gave them some decorations and when I walked in our room on the day of our reception, I couldn't believe how beautiful it looked. I knew they would do a good job, but it was beyond anything I could have imagined. It was also so nice that I didn't have to worry about decorating or setting up, they took care of everything. I brought in some decorations for the cake too, and that looked amazing as well. The prices are very affordable, and the food and service were also great. I can't thank Genetti's enough for a great night!

  • Our wedding last Saturday was perfect and the decorations and lighting, thanks to Ahmad, looked amazing. It was better than I could have hoped. During the planning process, the wedding coordinator left Genetti's and we found out a few weeks later, but the new coordinator Elizabeth took over everything and got everything organized for us. Elizabeth dealt with sometimes weekly emails from me worried about little details that I found out I didn't need to ever worry about. We had some minor glitches (leaking ceiling, being told our hotel room was double booked, and a lost tier on our cake), but these all got worked out, and they even ended up making us a special cake to bring home. I always hear horror stories about what goes wrong at weddings, but even the little inevitable things that happened to us were fixed and the staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and that everything was perfect. I'd recommend Genetti's to anyone for their wedding! And definitely stay in the ... Read more

  • My husband and I had Genetti's cater our wedding in Pine Grove, PA. We worked with Patrick and he was very helpful when it came to planning out how to use the space at our venue. This was a new venue for them and that was never a problem. The day before and of the wedding Patrick was very helpful and made sure everything was perfect. He and his staff even helped set up and clean up items that were not made by his company (i.e. our dessert table). Everyone who attended our wedding raved about the food, specifically the cocktail hour appetizers. Many also commented about the friendly and polite staff. The only reason I gave this company a 4 instead of a 5 was because we had some bumps along the way. I met with Patrick multiple times and asked him for prices for tablecloths, food items, etc and waited a long time for a response every time. I would usually end up emailing Amy or Marcie in the office before I would get a response. I also set up a meeting with Patrick at my venue that he did... Read more
