  • 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.

  • 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... Read more

  • 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!

  • It begins and ends with Brenda Seekins, Venezia’s wedding planner/coordinator. Our daughters’ vision for her dream wedding became a reality on December 31,2018. Brenda worked tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of the wedding was magical. She transformed the venue in to a lounge like atmosphere with a winter wonderland theme. It was simply gorgeous and her efforts exceeded all of our expectations. In addition ,the cuisine was superb, the servers attentive and kind and the desserts simply divine. We had the utmost faith in Brenda’s ability from the start but the finished product was beyond our wildest dreams, perfection ! Thank you Brenda and your entire Venezia catering staff for a job well done. We applaud you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts...

  • Venezia came highly recommended to us and they did not disappoint. Brenda was amazing to work with. As a very detail-oriented, some what of a control freak (me, not her), Brenda put me at ease from the moment we met. She knows her stuff and then some. The entire staff the day of was tremendous. I did not have a care in the world and 100% relaxed/enjoyed our big day. The food was melt in your mouth delicious. The dessert bar was spectacular and the late night snacks really hit the spot.

  • Working with Brenda and the team at Venezia was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Brenda was very responsive and did a great job laying out all of our options and was super responsive via phone and email when we had questions regarding rentals, vendors, food, etc. The vendor fair they have is invaluable and allowed us to try tons of food options and pick some of our vendors. On the day of the wedding, we didn’t have any concerns because we knew that they understood what we wanted and that every detail would be perfectly managed and it was. We had 300 people and the service was quick and there was never a big line at the bar or any overcrowding. Everyone keeps talking about what an amazing wedding it was and how it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. I would highly recommend this venue!

  • We celebrated our wedding in August, 2017 and held our reception at Venezia. This is truly a hidden gem in Boston and we highly recommend this venue. Venezia offers delicious food, fantastic service, and the views are breathtaking. We took pictures outside in the gazebo and on the boardwalk. The reception area is beautiful, we especially loved the white piano (we recommend having a pianist play during cocktail hour) and the staircase adding such warmth and elegance to the area as well as the chandelier. While our guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party freshened up in our very own private bridal suite, which had everything we needed! I'm truly most grateful for Brenda Seekins, she is AMAZING, very personable and guides you through the entire process with such ease. She made our wedding day effortless (one thing I remember Brenda saying is "you just show up looking gorgeous and I will do all of the driving")! On our wedding day, believe me, we never felt so relaxed. We... Read more

  • We chose Venezia as our venue for our July 7, 2017 wedding. We already knew that the food would be amazing since we have eaten at the restaurant mulitple times. The venue is absolutely beautiful being located on the water with the Boston skyline in the background. When it came time to book we met with Brenda Seekins who was very accommodating to our needs. She was there for us through the year and a half engagment to help with anything we needed. It was nice to have her there to make everything a little less stressful. The ambience of the venue was absolutely gorgeous . We chose to have our nuptials and reception there. Our ceremony was on the stairs in the main entrance which made it feel more intimate. The food was incredible, which we already knew. It is 3 months now since the wedding and our guest are still talking about how delicious the food was. Also they can not stop talking about how elegant and breath taking our reception was. If you are looking for the perfect place to star... Read more

  • First, I just want to preface by saying that my wedding is not until May 2017 but I felt compelled to write a review about Brenda Seekins and the planning process. Brenda is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. She is so lovely and supportive. I am a nervous/anxious/procrastinator bride. I live in another state but whenever I need to meet or talk to her, she always makes herself available amidst her very busy busy schedule. I'm pretty sure she can assess my anxiety regarding the wedding and she always cheers me up by reminding me not to worry and that everything will be OK, that we have time, to breathe, etc... In addition, I can always share with her what's going on in my life, because that's the kind of person she is - she cares. Whenever I meet with her, I feel completely at ease and I don't feel as nervous. She always gives me honest suggestions and tells me as it is, which I appreciate. Not to mention, she's hilarious, she always makes me laughs. Our emails are business but very often so, there's a... Read more

  • It was hard to give a definitive yes or no. It definitely depends on preference. If you want as little customization as possible then this is the place for you. But I would have to say no if you want to add a lot of your own feel to your wedding. They are restrictive in their no outside furniture or fabrics policy and to rent in house is way too expensive. They also do not want to work directly with any of your vendors so you find yourself having to be the middle man. Also the initial prices I was told it would cost to rent out fabrics went up when I had additional meetings with them. They have a bridal suite but you can only access it 30 minutes prior to the ceremony which for me was kind of like "what's the point?" However, it is a really nice facility, excellent staff, good food, free parking, beautiful view and all right in the city. Simple and elegant. Overall I am happy with my experience but I do wish I had shopped around a bit more.

  • We just had our June 24th wedding at the Venezia and it was everything we could have wished for and more! The staff take care of the bride, groom, and wedding party as if you are the only ones in the room. We couldn't have asked for a better view. The food was Incredible as always (my husband and I love having dinner at the restaurant portion of the property, so we knew it would be amazing)! They were also very accommodating with allergies. Brenda was phenomenal! On the day of the wedding she was so patient with the chaos of family photos and was able to figure out how to bustle my dress when no one else could! The entire atmosphere was absolutely perfect. We had our ceremony there as well in the ballroom, and it was absolutely perfect for us. Intimate with a stunning view out onto the water. Thank you so much Venezia!!
