Saphire Estate provided everything we wanted for our wedding and more. Assisting one bride is a task in and of itself, but two brides? Our producer Brooke was great and took on the task with extreme professionalism. She communicated well, was very knowledgeable, responded to all of our questions (and dozens of emails!), and was a joy to work with. The wedding day crew: Jeannine (manager), Marlyce (bridal attendant) and the servers were all very attentive. Everything from the well manicured grounds, outdoor ceremony space, cocktail, ceremony halls and food were exquisite! We were very pleased with the experience we had with Saphire Event Group.
Kayla was so accommodating, pleasant, professional, understanding, attentive and she and all the staff at the villa was immaculate and went above and beyond for my husband and I. I couldn’t have picked a better venue to have my wedding. I gave 5 stars but it isn’t enough to rate the villa they all deserve 10 stars. We’ve received nothing but amazing comments and compliments from food down to the venue from all of our guests.I will be highly recommending everyone who will be getting married here. My husband and I couldn’t thank them all enough they’re all amazing and we’re still obsessing over it.
We loved our wedding at Saphire Estate! The venue is absolutely gorgeous - the garden ceremony spot, the cocktail hour room, the reception place and the lake area. Our guests could not stop talking about how good the food was, I was so impressed. If you are having your wedding at Saphire, I highly recommend getting ready at the Highland House. It made the whole day so easy and seamless. Anne was an awesome coordinator, she made each decision super easy. Jeannine is the best day-of coordinator, she truly went above and beyond all night long.
We had our wedding outdoors in the Tent, Sarah was our event producer. We had a great experience working with her! When it came to the rehearsal and the day of she was on top of everything, bringing us a lot of comfort. We did not have to worry about any of the details that day. Sarah, and all the Villa staff, were very professional and attentive. The food was excellent! Venue was beautiful! Sarah was always available to answer questions! Overall, the Villa ended up being the perfect venue for us; we can't imagine having our wedding anywhere else!
Thank you so much for being such a huge part of our day. From the first time we met, I knew you'd be the most efficient, helpful, badass producer. You made this whole experience so easy.
Our day was so perfect. You were wonderful to work with and we are so thankful to have had you be a part of it. The Villa was everything we dreamed of!
If you're thinking of having your wedding here, DO IT! Our guests keep complimenting us on the stellar food, the gorgeous venue, and the staff of obvious pros that kept everything running like clockwork. Our planning & production manager Hillary was a superstar, and I hope her supervisor reads this and gives her a giant raise. She had to jump on our wedding semi last minute and took care of everything like it was no problem, including a very anxious bride (hello!). Saphire Estate gave us the most perfect day we ever could have imagined - I'd give way more than five stars if I could!
This venue is hands down the greatest. They take care of everything for you. I’m very type A and organized and can be a pain to deal with but Sydney our producer was excellent. She was very responsive, had solutions to any logistics issues I had, she even repurposed my flowers for me and set up decorations in the most beautiful way. She was also mentally a rock for me which I will appreciate for the rest of my life. She made getting married during a surge in the pandemic the most calming, fun, and organized experience and I don’t think just anyone has that kind of skill. Everyone was wonderful and catered to us and I would recommend them one thousand percent everything was beautiful and perfect!
There are no words to explain how great our wedding day was. From the day we walked in to tour, we knew it was the one! The villa was the only venue we looked at, Lauren toured us and Ashley helped book. The grand ballroom was beautiful and very easy to say yes to. Once it got close enough Sarah was our day of coordinator and she was AMAZING. We had a very large wedding party and lots of personalities to deal with. Sarah went above and beyond in every aspect imaginable. I truly could not have asked or imagined a better day. I would recommend the Villa over and over again to anyone looking for a venue. Our day would have not been what it was if it was not for the team at the Villa!
Alex and I would like to thank you and your team for such a wonderful wedding day! It was above and beyond expectations. The day was seamless, we were both able to be present and enjoy each other while we were also enjoying the time with our guests. You were very helpful in planning and leading us to our wedding day with very low stress, being very understanding and always having a positive attitude!
Avenir is an unbelievable venue!! The ballroom is even more gorgeous in person. The whole property is very modern, elegant, and glam. The workers/staff are very professional and hardworking. I had the pleasure of working with Hillary as my event producer. She is so organized and patient!! She brought my wedding vision to life and helped with every little detail along the way. I’m so grateful to have worked with her. I received so many compliments from my guests about the food here. The dinner, apps, and desserts were delicious and cooked to perfection!! All my wedding dreams came true here. Whatever your vision is, this group will work hard to make it happen. I am so happy I chose this venue!!!
My husband and I would love to thank everyone at the Villa for making our dream day perfection. Hillary was our Event Producer and made sure we were on track with planning and was only a phone call away if we had questions or wanted to run ideas through her. If you are an upcoming bride, RUN DON'T WALK--the Villa is a dream. Great food/drinks, amazing vendor relationships and the best vendors on the South Shore.
Our experience at the Villa was the absolute best! We had Elizabeth as our event coordinator who was very attentive and responsive at answering all of our questions! We both felt very comfortable with her and felt we were in good hands. On the day of the wedding I had Becky who was literally at my side throughout the entire event making sure I always had a drink in my hand, my dress, hair and makeup was always looking perfect and overall making sure I was 100% taken care of. I felt like royalty that day! If you have any doubts, look no further! Book this place!
Absolutely amazing!!! Working with the team (specifically Sydney) at Avenir was such a fantastic experience. Not only did Sydney help us step by step of the way, she was available for any questions by email or phone and was ALWAYS so helpful! The venue itself is beautiful and our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was and how beautiful eveything was. The wedding day team was also the BEST (shoutout to Lauren for always being their for me and my husband!) Lauren not only made sure we were never without an empty glass, but she was also there for anything we needed throughout the night. I can’t say enough about the staff at Avenir, and how smooth they make the day go by! I am not one to write reviews but This team and the venue definitely deserves five stars. If you end up choosing Avenir as your venue, just know that you will be taken care of by the amazing staff, you will eat delicious food, and you will get the most amazing pictures in their beautiful garden and interior spaces. Thank you again Sydney and Lauren and the whole team at Avenir
5 stars isn't enough! The team at the Villa is so wonderful that it more than makes up for the slightly inconvenient (i.e. far off the highway) location. The food was top notch, the service was spectacular, they even knew what I wanted/ needed before I did! Victoria was especially amazing, a great resource and inspiration over the course of the planning process. still blown away by the whole experience, HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding!!
From the first visit at the Villa, we knew that was going to be our venue. We did visit two others, just to do our due diligence, but we kept comparing it back to the Villa and nothing compared to it. The beauty of the ballrooms, pergola and the grounds around it speak for themselves. You won’t find a better venue for your special day and it makes for great photos and backgrounds. And raze reviews from every guest about the food. "Best food we ever had" from a lot of guests and they aren't wrong. No matter what you pick for passed hors d'oeuvre's or meals or food cart options, you will be impressed by all of it. Chefs do an amazing job. But what you remember most is the staff. They are absolutely amazing and are on top of everything, both leading up to the wedding and all the way thru the day. Whether it was reacting to things on the fly, a bridesmaid who needed dress help, they were right there on top of everything. From the first visit with Kristen, to working with Elizabeth and her team day of, there is no one better. Wedding planning can be a lot, but when you have this team helping you through it, you feel so much better and made our day one to remember.
From the moment that we stepped foot into the Madera Room at The Villa, we fell in love with it. Everything was so cozy, from the wooden beams across the ceiling, to the fireplaces on either end of the room. They also just so happened to have an October date still available, which sealed the deal! We booked in February....and then Covid hit. Planning a wedding during a global pandemic is a daunting task, but the staff at The Villa made it so much easier! Elizabeth, our wedding coordinator, was very communicative throughout the entire process, keeping us up to date with what the governor was saying, along with what the guidelines were at The Villa. We had to change multiple things due to restrictions, including moving from the Madera Room to The Tent outside. The Tent had a different feel from the Madera Room, but was still just as beautiful. We also were forced to significantly cut out guest list by more than 50%. Each step of the way, Elizabeth and the sales team helped us figure out what would work best for us and our day. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch. We had not only Elizabeth, but also had a bridal attendant and an event manager. The staff were always available for anything we needed, and quietly took care of everything behind the scenes. Despite all of the changes, we could not have been more pleased with our decision to have our wedding at The Villa. After speaking with our guests, many have agreed that it was one of the most well-run weddings that they have been to, and that the food was phenomenal!
So happy we chose Avenir for our wedding! I would recommend this venue to everyone! They are so professional and organized. Our wedding producer was Sydney she super helpful every step of the way. She was very attentive and would answer all our questions and if she did not know the answer she would get the answer for us. The day of the wedding brides get a bridal attendant. Mine was Amy. She was super sweet she would always make sure that I had everything I needed. Also Maria she would also make everything was running on schedule with food and just the overall layout of the evening. And the food!! Absolutely amazing!! Our guest kept telling us it was the “best wedding food” they ever had! Overall we were super happy with our experience wish I could relive the day over again!
Working with the team at Avenir was far and above beyond our expectations! Every room, every decoration, every single detail at Avenir has weddings in mind. The way the doors are located and rooms are set up to allow flow from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception created perfect transitions throughout the day. Each room is beautifully decorated with a gorgeous, clean, modern glam aesthetic with a neutral color scheme that is gorgeous on its own. Both ceremony options (indoor and outdoor) suited our needs and it's rare to find a venue that offers beautiful options for both. The attention to detail in planning the event was impeccable. Every single element of the day was looked after, and we had so much trust in the team in case anything got delayed or didn't go according to plan-the fact is, everything did! They managed to make everything run so smoothly. We had a guest who requested a kosher meal, and the event producer took the time to find this guest and explain to her the methods being used to prepare her meal, and the chef also set aside a plate of special kosher appetizers just for her. We were greatly impressed by the level of commitment the team had towards making sure all of our guests were comfortable and taken care of. We couldn't say enough things about our experience working with SEG at Avenir. They made the wedding planning process orderly and organized, and ultimately we had left so much trust in the team on the day of the wedding that all we did was enjoy the day. We couldn't have been happier choosing to have the wedding of our dreams at Avenir!
I got married here and everything was PERFECT! Such a beautiful and romantic venue. Multiple guests told me it was the best food they have had at a wedding. The day ran so smoothly I was surprised not a single thing went wrong. The reason it went so perfectly was because of my coordinator Hillary. If you get assigned Hillary for your wedding you are in the BEST of hands. She knows her stuff and can answer each and every question you have. She was with us throughout the entire planning process and was so quick to respond via email, text, call, etc. 10/10 recommend both Hillary and The Villa.
As we are winding down from a whirlwind weekend, we just wanted to reach out and let you know how thankful we are to you for helping us pull off the wedding of our dreams. I don’t think I’ll ever forget walking into the Tent for the first time and seeing my vision brought to life. I was speechless! Everything was perfect, the details went exactly as planned and the night was so smooth. You were so easy to work with and a breath of fresh air. We truly appreciate you and all of your hard work throughout the last few months. We couldn’t have done it without you!. Thank you again for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime!
My husband and I were married at Avenir in August 2018 - EVERYTHING was amazing! The staff was outstanding in making sure that our every need was met and taken care of in a timely manner. There was no point in the entire process where we 2nd guessed our decision to use the venue. The ballroom is gorgeous with an eye-catching chandelier that our guests still mention. There is so much to say about this venue and the people who made everything possible. The staff was always patient with us and we appreciated everyone's effort to make our day perfect. You can't go wrong with choosing Avenir!
We really loved working with Avenir. When we first heard that Raffael's was under new ownership we were pretty nervous! Sydney and her team did such a great job making it an easy transition for us. Our contract was honored completely and the service was amazing. The chef is highly notable- the food was absolutely delicious. We are so happy we chose this venue!
Kyle & I can't thank you all enough for helping to make our day so awesome! We got nothing but compliments from all our guests. From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU!
The Villa was our first and only venue we looked at and we fell in love with the Tent. It has beautiful landscape grounds and the pergola is gorgeous! The food was outstanding and everyone was raving about it. Choosing the food was so difficult because everything is incredible! It truly was the best day ever and I couldn’t imagine having our wedding anywhere else!
Saphire Estate exceeded our expectations. Our coordinator went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, taken care of, and played a crucial role in making our wedding special. She even helped me (the groom) plan an additional surprise for the my wife (the bride) when she arrived at Saphire. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is ideal, and the entire staff is dedicated to making your day perfect. If you are looking for a place that "has it all", this is it!
Thank you for coordinating our wedding day. Everything went smoothly and the guest loved the food! It was an amazing day and the grounds looked magnificent. We were so happy to choose Saphire Estate as our venue!
Thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding. We had an amazing night all thanks to you and the rest of the staff at Saphire Estate. We hope you have a great holiday season!
We had our wedding at the Villa last night, and I could not be happier with how everything went. There was not a single negative to the whole night. The staff was awesome—so nice and accommodating. Haley was our coordinator, and she was great to work with. I am not the most organized person/wedding planner, but we had a great night thanks to Haley and her team, who kept everything running smoothly. Our bridal attendant Terry was so helpful, as was our event manager Aubree. We were able to spend the whole night just dancing and having a blast with our guests. They even packed everything up for us at the end of the night. We also had our ceremony outside and the reception in the tent, which I highly recommend! Our guests loved it, as well as the food and drinks. Highly recommend the Villa! You won’t have to worry about a thing on your wedding day.
Avenir was the perfect venue for our wedding. All of the details were covered by our event producer, Sydney, and the rest of the Saphire Event Group team. The venue was beautiful even before the renovations, but I could not believe how magical Avenir became after everything was complete. We were the first outdoor wedding after the gardens were renovated and we received countless compliments on the wonderful scenery. We also received compliments all night regarding the delicious food, both passed appetizers and main courses, and all of the support including bartenders and wait staff. Overall, we would recommend Avenir and the SEG team for anyone's wedding. They preserved as much cost as they could for us, were incredibly professional, and make our special day perfect in every way.
My wife and I booked Avenir just as they had changed ownership. The venue is stunning, especially after Saphire Event Group added their special touch to it. The level of detail that the Saphire Event Group drills down to is amazing. The wedding was perfect; from the service to the food- nothing could have been done better! People are saying how it was one of the best weddings they had been to. I highly recommend Avenir!
We are just shy of our two month anniversary and I could not let too much time go by without sending you a special thank you! Sterling and I greatly appreciated everything you did to make our special day so amazing!
I loved everything about our wedding at The Villa. We had a beautiful garden wedding ceremony under the pergola, followed by a reception in the beautiful tent. I also have to say the food is the absolute best! I never expected to be able to enjoy every moment of my wedding like I did!
Words simply aren’t enough to express how grateful we are to you! You made planning easy, stress-free and fun. How lucky we are to have you create our dream day!
Just wanted to thank you for a great night! Food was excellent, bartenders and servers were great, grounds were beautiful. Thank you for helping to make our daughter's wedding perfect!
Thank you again for everything you did for our wedding day. We loved every second of it! Both of our families specifically said thank you and speak so highly of their experience. Saphire is so beautiful and I enjoyed every planning meeting we had - I wish I could come back again!
