My husband and I were married on October 15, 2016 and we used Villa Russo for our wedding reception. We started planning our wedding a year ago and Villa Russo made the experience easy. Our Banquet manager Jennifer was absolutely AMAZING!!! She responded to every single email, and phone call and provided fantastic input. The best thing was her understanding of the needs of our son who has Austism and providing the attention to those details. Jennifer made sure very single detail that we talked was taken care of such as; color scheme, reserved seat of honor for my deceased father, to special food for our son with autism. From the napkins to the smallest detail, everything was accommodated. The hall looked amazing and everyone of our guests complimented how beautiful the place was. The food was amazing!!! We choose the sit down dinner style and all I can say is Come hungry!!!! Now I have to sing the praises of our Maitre D, Kim. No words can express our appreciation for all that she did for us from the beginning to end. She coordinated with our vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly, and always made sure we had anything we needed. My husband and I were never without our preferred drink at our table, my guests had no complaints on service, and everyone was happy. She did everything to make our day very memorable. THANK YOU for making our wedding fabulous and giving us and our guest’s memories that we can still talk about today!!!
My fiancée and I toured Villa Russo after it was recommended to us. The hall itself is gorgeous, with lots of stone and brickwork that give the venue a real old-world charm. Jennifer was our planner and could not have been nicer or more helpful. We ended up getting their Sunday all-inclusive package, which simplified things greatly - the DJ, photographer, video, photo booth, and limo were all included. We had our whole wedding on-site at Villa Russo, holding our ceremony in the Grotto and our reception in the Palace Room. The event went very smoothly, with tasty food and lovely décor. All the choices we made with Jennifer's help were realized perfectly on the day itself. The maître d' and his team took excellent care of us all day. Villa Russo gets highest marks from us, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone else. A+++
My husband and I got married at Villa Russo in March. I was sold after the first appointment with Nicolette. She was accommodating and flexible to fit our needs. My husband was stationed overseas at the time so it was little overwhelming thinking of all the details without him but she made it very easy and was always responsive. I also met with Sue and Jennifer for later appointments finalizing details and they were just as helpful and kind. Now, words couldn't even begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for our Maitre D, Kim. From the second my husband and I arrived at the venue on our wedding day, she was simply AMAZING!. My husband arrived first with our favors and some decorations. He told me that as he was about to begin explaining to Kim where/how I'd like them set up she simply stopped him and replied with "don't worry, I got it". By the time I arrived, she certainly did have it all under control - there wasn't a single thing out of place. She coordinated with our vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly, and always made sure we had anything we needed. My husband and I were never without our preferred drink at our table, my guests had no complaints on service, and everyone was happy. We'd like to thank Kim once again for making our wedding even better than I could have hoped for. Lastly, the food was outstanding! We chose to have family style appetizers, a salad course, pasta course and main entree. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the fried calamari and shell steak. We used the house bakery for our cake(we choose the Opera style) it was delicious! And, the HUGE selection of AMAZING cookies, pastries, coffee, tea and cappuccino's was outstanding. In conclusion, our wedding could have not been any more perfect! Thank you, Villa Russo!
Jennifer, I would like to thank you and letting you know that the party was amazing!!!!! We were impressed how nice everything was I have no words to thank you and every single person that worked that night. I felt like a queen, my friend on the wheelchair showed up and the personnel helped her so much. My family loves the place and they were so happy the food was excellent and the cake was marvelous as I told you before I will recommend Villa Russo to all my friends. However, I do not think that I have to recommend you because Villa Russo recommended yourself that night even my cousin that got married a week ago regret that he did not know about Villa Russo.
