    Amazing and Understand

    Although we had to cancel our event with Renee and the Embrace Wedding team we left the experience feeling grateful, appreciative, and excited for an opportunity to work with them in the future! Every step of the way Renee made us feel supported and fulfilled our wildest dreams with the proposal she put together. My only regret is that we weren't able to see it all the way through. Even with the cancellation of multiple venues and finally the event as a whole Renee remained understanding and flexible. When we did cancel we received our deposit back in full and left the relationship extremely positive.

    Embrace Weddings's reply:

    Thank you so much Sarah & Patrick!
    Here's to a great elopement and a life full of love and laughter!!

    La Vie en Rose

    Our wedding was a roller coaster ride, to say the least. Thanks COVID! We planned several versions of our wedding, from booking at a venue in Cambridge for 50 people, to having to cancel, to having no wedding at all, to 10 people and no reception, to 25 people at home and then lastly, 75 people, a full wedding in my parents backyard. Since we could not make any real moves or planning without knowing where restrictions would fall we ended up having only 4 weeks to make it all happen, and let me say how it would NOT have been possible without Renee & Igor, and Embrace Weddings. Our wedding was an ABSOLUTE DREAM COME TRUE, and that is because we found Embrace Weddings.

    Renee & Igor, you brought our vision to life for a wedding that people will talk about for years to come. Filled with magic, romance, ambiance, stunning decor, and delicious food, it was a day that we will cherish forever.

    Renee, you go above and beyond to make sure your clients are heard, and looked after. That every aspect of their vision is honored, all in a professional and human way. This is a very unique attribute and one you should be very proud of.

    Igor, Hats off to the Chef! Incredible is the only word. Guests said they were making love to their food, and wanted to runaway with their dessert. A new standard of excellence was set, as I have never and will never enjoy fine dining like this at a wedding venue. I do not know how you can create a fine dining experience with such a high level of quality for a large group of 75. Our guests were in awe!

    I would hire embrace weddings to handle any wedding or major event in a heart beat. Highly recommended! Wishing you all the success in the world Renee & Igor - you deserve it!

    With love and gratitude,
    Jessica & Geo

    Dear Jessica, Geo and Family

    Tuscany in our backyard

    Wedding planning is never fun and for some reason we decided to do it twice! 11 years later for our vow renewal.
    With covid to add to this already stressful time it was a happy time when we stumbled upon Embrace wedding.
    At first we were simply looking for catering, but when Renee called to walk us through the menu options we instantly fell in love with her passion for our event.
    Not many companies at the time when we started planning were really in the space of small wedding or parties but Renee made us feel like the most important clients and I believe that is really what every bride and groom need during such an event.
    The decor was not easy, when planning for a backyard event every detail had to be perfect and just right and Renee bless her had all the patience in the world as we went through every option.
    The day of Renee was here bright and early setting up and making sure our vision would come to life, and let me tell you did it ever. Felt like Tuscany in our backyard. There was not a detail missed and service by Bruno was by far one of the highlights of our event! Every single guest raved about his service and spark. We miss you Bruno!
    Igor delivered a flawless menu… I mean flawless. Every guest is still talking about the food and I will be most definitely hiring Igor for any future events!! I still dream of the egg plant cigars and salmon. It will forever be one of my favourite meals!
    Between Igor, Bruno and Renee not a detail was missed.
    We had the big 200 person wedding and we would trade our micro backyard wedding event hosted by embrace wedding 100 times over.
    From the quote to the delivery of the event we would not hesitate to hire or recommend Igor and Renee for any future event, you won’t be disappointed!

    I couldn’t write enough to thank them for the best day of our life but I hope this review helps someone make the decision! You will not regret hiring Embrace Weddings!

    Dear Meytal and Rob
    Thank you so very very much for this beautiful review. We were so thrilled to be a part of your special vow renewal, it was wonderful to witness your love story in person. We wish you many more years of love and laughter together. X0, Renee & Igor

    Made the impossible possible

    Renee and Igor helped make my wedding absolutely spectacular. The team was able to overcome any of the challenges that were present due to COVID-19 restrictions, risks, and reservations - all within the very short timeline of 2 weeks. Every detail from the menu, to decor and rentals was exactly as I had envisioned. They were also a pleasure to partner with. They were patient and handled my many inquiries, changing mind, and inquisitive nature with professionalism. I can’t thank them or recommend them enough - they gave me the wedding of my dreams when I thought it wasn’t possible. Thank you!

    Embrace Weddings's reply:

    Thank you Samantha! It was a pleasure to bring your vision to life. Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!

    Amazing Vendor

    Renee and her team are incredible.

    We had a relatively small semi-shotgun event and she put together a fabulous menu with staffing at a very reasonable rate in a really short amount of time. Our guests couldn't say enough about the quality of the food & professionalism - truly high end restaurant quality.

    Renee went above and beyond in all aspects...even going so far as to decorate our head table without us asking that made our rustic farm event really one to remember.

    Hire Embrace Weddings. You won't regret it.

    Embrace Weddings's reply:

    Dear Shayan
    Thank you very much for your review. It was such a pleasure to support you on your special day, so glad we could be of service!
    We wish you both a lifetime of love and laughter.

    Speechless!

    Renee and Igor! Thank you for putting in your all (and more) and for making our wedding so wonderful! Our wedding was SO beautiful and SO flawless! You helped turn our wedding (during a pandemic) into one that would have exceeded our expectations if it were a “normal” wedding day. ❤️

    Embrace Weddings's reply:

    Dearest Sarah

The energy at your wedding was off the hook :) Sending you both lots of love and happiness. XO Renee & Igor
