    You won't find a more beautiful setting

    this building is absolutely stunning! For pictures there is no comparison between venues, Swaneset is the best hands down. The food was FANTASTIC and we just did the buffet, best wedding food I've ever had. There were some hiccups day of and with communication leading up to day of, but it's a wedding, i expected a lot more to go wrong! The team was very friendly and accommodating, especially with having to reschedule due to covid. They gave us a perfect wedding day!

    Picture-Perfect Venue

    We are so glad we chose Swaneset for our wedding. It was the most gorgeous venue, with views of mountains, a tree-lined driveway, castle-like building, huge windows in the ballroom, and so many other beautiful spots to take wedding photos. We had our ceremony in the center spotlight, which was gorgeous, and perfect for fall as it was indoors. The food and bar service were great. The only issue we had was that our late night snacks were served without any of the sides (no buns or condiments for the hot dogs and no sauces or dips for the tacos). However, I noticed quickly and informed the staff, who then brought out the extras. Swaneset is a bit pricey, but it wasn't too bad in the off-season. The beauty of this venue is worth the price overall!

    September 2022 Wedding

    We chose to go with Swaneset as the venue for our September 2022 wedding. Melissa was our day of coordinator and she was fantastic! She was always open to answering any and all questions. On the wedding day, she made sure all logistics were taken care of, which was a huge relief for me as I did not have to stress about them.

    We chose to go with canapes and stationed appetizers. Guests were pleased with both. We decided to go with the Chef's Table buffet option and so many of our guests raved about the food. Some said it was the best meal at a wedding they have ever had.

    We were very happy with everything Swaneset provided!!

    Perfect Summer Wedding!

    PLANNING:

    I booked this venue over a year and a half in advance and was very impressed by the responsiveness and communication with the Events Coordinator -- Holly as well as the wedding coordinator Melissa until the big day.

    All details were very clear, the rehearsal was comprehensive and easy to follow for the bridal party and they were VERY flexible with last minute seating and guest count changes (I had some guests that did not RSVP that wanted to come.

    CEREMONY:

    We had the ceremony on the Birch Terrace and it was absolutely breathtaking. I only had very minimal decor, had a very fairytale like arch with florals and nothing else and the area still looked magical. You don't need to dress it up very much and I received compliments from guests. The venue provided water for the guests since it turned out to be a very sunny day so they were well hydrated. The long walk to the terrace was a beautiful walk down.

    FOOD:
    Incredible. The guests could not stop raving about the canapes and they really enjoyed the buffet. We did the Chef's Table menu witht he Seafood station add on and it was a big hit. This venue does NOT do food tastings and I was skeptical at first but I'm glad they were right in saying the food was amazing. People are still talking about the Beef, the shrimps and scallop saute and the mashed potato bar. I am also very happy that we got to eat! We had butler service with picking the food we wanted and we actually were able to eat at our wedding.

    OVERALL:
    Overall, this venue is very organized. Our timeline was delayed an hour due to our tables wantig us to do individual rounds to chat and do official table photos with us so that took quite a bit of time. Melissa stayed extra to make sure everything went smoothly until the party time and I really appreciated that.

    Really recommend this venue!

    One thing, I missed the fine print that the venue does NOT move the wedding cake table on to the center so you will need to assign someone to move it for you. We stood around for a bit until our photographer suggested to ask my brother and brother-in-law to help in carrying it during our cake cutting.

    September 1 Wedding

    My wife and I were blown away by the venue and couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. We can't thank Sam Judd enough for her professionalism and quick replies to all our queries. Would recommend 10/10!

    The most perfect wedding at Swaneset

    10/10 - Swaneset was the MOST beautiful venue we could have dreamt of! We absolutely loved our venue! It was so easy since they had everything included in their package from the ceremony space, table and chair set up to food and beverages. They took care of it all! Given how busy this wedding season was we were so grateful to have Narisa, a very seasoned wedding planner to help up us with our special day. She made us feel so prepared during our rehearsal and let us practice as many times as we need to feel ready. This really helped make the day of so seem so perfect! Narisa helped in every aspect from putting the boutonniere on the guys to getting me a plate of food so I could get my energy back up! Narisa was a great communicator and was able to have the most perfect day! We are so grateful for the entire Swaneset team! We had to reschedule due to the pandemic and they were nothing but professional and understanding throughout the whole process.聽

    On The Fence...

    Kind of bittersweet in terms of how this went. The venue is beautiful, the food was amazing, the set up was gorgeous. But it seemed like every time we needed our coordinator, no one could find her. A lot of miscommunication as well. The pictures turned out beautiful and there weren't any huge problems but it was stressful running around trying to find people on our wedding day...
