This venue was perfect for my NYE wedding this year! The staff there are amazing, prompt with their responses, professional, and just a pleasure to deal with! My coordinator Johanna was the best!!! She made our day go by smoothly and I always felt comfortable with her at the realm. Honestly she was running around the entire day as much as the rest of the staff. The food here is soooo good and I heard nothing but positive responses from all our guests. This is definitely a venue that takes pride in their service and it shows!

Our winter wedding at The Commons was even better than I could have imagined. You know how people are always saying, "expect something to go wrong on your wedding day"? Not at The Commons! Everything was flawless, from the lighting to the food to the pacing of the night. Our guests commented on how smoothly everything went and how efficient the venue was in every way. The food was absolutely outstanding, and Johanna, our coordinator, was a professional at every turn. I had a lot of questions during the year leading up to the wedding, and Johanna was always prompt and pleasant in her replies. I cannot recommend The Commons highly enough - they made our night absolutely perfect!

We had our wedding here 10/2/2016, a Sunday. Our Wedding Coordinator Gianna who was amazing, she was very attentive to our needs. Being a nervous bride i had a lot of questions and Gianna was very responsive to my emails. A month prior to the wedding we sat down and went over every detail. She calmed my nerves and felt better when i left. The location is gorgeous they keep this place immaculate. All my guests had a wonderful time, loved the venue, food and of course the staff. Thank you Gianna, Joanna, Kristi and Frank everything was absolutely perfect it exceeded my expectations.

I could not picture having our wedding anywhere else but The Commons! From the moment I saw their website, I knew that this would be our special place. Gianna and the rest of the staff are absolute professionals and helped us plan and think of every detail for our wedding day. Despite being a bride planning from another state, my conversations with the team, over email, phone, and text, instilled such confidence in me with the planning process. The venue is beautiful, the food is phenomenal, the staff is perfection - The Commons is a wedding dream come true!

We can’t say enough wonderful things about Kristi, Johanna, Frank, and the whole team at the Commons. After searching at nearly 30 venues, when we stepped into the Commons we knew it was the right place for us to get married. I am very detail-oriented and it was great working with Kristi and Johanna because they are organized, professional, and offered wonderful tips and advice through the whole wedding-planning process. Frank was also great to work with, and his homemade pasta is a MUST HAVE at your wedding (and this is coming from a family full of pasta-making Italians!).

The day of our wedding, we were beyond impressed with Johanna’s professionalism. She kept our timeline moving, made sure I was eating and even brought a tray of appetizers to me to make sure I got a taste of all of them. The whole night it seemed like Johanna was everywhere, whether it was taking care of small details that we hadn’t thought of (like offering our bridal party mints before the introductions) or letting us know when would be a good time to go table-to-table, she was extremely professional and smiling the whole evening!

The whole team at the Commons was enthusiastic, accommodating, and helpful, and made our wedding feel more special than we could have imagined.

It all started when my mom and I did our first meeting, I remember the owner was so friendly and pretty much hand feeding us samples of food. I even went home with a little sample platter! I was impressed then and everything got better and better! Gianna, our wedding coordinator, was absolutely amazing. Every staff member we encountered was so nice and you can really tell they enjoy where they work...which says a lot about the owners! The food was amazing, the gelato bar was by far my favorite!

Truly, The Commons 1854 deserves more than 5 stars as they went above and beyond the call of duty for our wedding. The staff, including Gianna, Johanna and Kristi, were an absolutely breeze to work with and were so responsive that we would have our email questions answered sometimes within minutes. We also want to commend them for being 100% LGBT friendly and treating these 2 brides like absolute queens!

On our wedding day our vision turned into reality as the setup was impeccable and the coordination (of 2 brides!) was on point. Our bridesmaids and even our photographer noted to us that they had never seen such outstanding service before. Our coordinators went so far as holding shade umbrellas for us during moments that we were stuck in the sun and magically producing ice cold glass of water for us moments before stepping out for the ceremony. They were everywhere and yet not in our way at all.

The food was unbelievable and rivaled a high end restaurant. The filets were cooked to perfection, not an easy task at that number I imagine. The dinner is one of the main parts of a wedding that most guests end up having an opinion on and our guests made a point to come and tell us how much they loved their meals. My brother went so far as saying it was the best filet he's ever had and wanted the staff to personally compliment the chef. We also loved their hors d'oeuvres which were creative (heart shaped grilled cheese with tomato soup shot!) and passed around generously.

A final note about the property itself: it is gorgeous! We had our ceremony in the outside garden which is so beautiful that it needs no extra floral arrangements. The inside of the building itself is gorgeously classic but still has a lot of character.

We simply can't speak highly enough of The Commons 1854 and its staff and are so very happy that we chose them for our special day. We will never forget how well they treated us.
