One Word: Amazing

Reviewed on 9/14/2015 Olivia B

Where do I even begin? The Hellenic Center was everything I wanted and more for my dream wedding in August. From the moment we stepped foot on the property for our initial meeting/venue tour we were in love. The building is gorgeous (a spacious and beautiful bridal suite is a... Read More plus!) and the lawns are meticulously maintained. You absolutely will not find such amazing value in a wedding venue anywhere else. Tamie, the Hellenic Center's wedding coordinator, is heaven-sent. The fact that you get to work directly with her is reason enough to book your wedding there! Her professionalism is top notch, and her personality is wonderful. She is friendly and approachable, extremely knowledgeable, and so, so helpful. My wedding went off without a hitch, and it was, without a doubt, the best day of my life. We cannot thank Tamie, and the Vinwood Catering staff enough for their hard work, dedication and patience over the last year and half. If you choose Vinwood as your caterer (and you should!), I hope you are lucky enough to work directly with Mackenzie. She was my rock, and friend(!) through this process, and made menu selection and decision making actually fun! Her input and help with everything was on point, and our guests are STILL raving about the quality of the food, and all the wonderful Vinwood staff. We are so glad our stressful venue searching process brought us to The Hellenic Center. I couldn't imagine my wedding anywhere else. Money definitely well spent!!

I got married at the Hellenic Center in September and it was absolutely perfect. The weather was awesome and the outdoor areas were still green and perfect for photos. Tamie is the event coordinator at the Hellenic Center and she did a great job the day of. She was attentive... Read More an helped make the day go by smoothly- you can tell she has a lot of experience. The only thing I would say is that she seems to be the only one planning the events at the Hellenic Center, so she is understandably very busy and sometimes hard to contact. Once the date got closer she was very attentive to our needs, but if you're trying to reach out and get a meeting set up you may have to be patient with her response time, but it's worth it!

I had my wedding at the Hellenic Center on June 15, 2013 and I could not be happier with my experience. The wedding coordinator, Tamie, really knows what she's doing and she was meticulous in overseeing every detail. From the very beginning of my wedding planning experience,... Read More Tamie was extremely helpful and responsive. She is also a very sweet person and was so easy to work with. I went with Vinwood Caterers and together they were a great team to work with. The execution of the event was flawless. There were a couple of issues that popped up (someone fainted at the cocktail reception, for example) and Tamie and the Vinwood staff handled it all with grace and incredible professionalism. Regarding the actual Hellenic Center, I think this is the perfect spot for understated elegance. I wanted to host my wedding at a place that felt like a historic, warm and elegant New England home and that is exactly what I got. My wedding motif was romantic classic with a bit of a vintage feel and the Hellenic Center was the perfect venue to capture this. I also had a multicultural wedding and both the Hellenic Center and Vinwood were fantastic at meeting all our special cultural requests. All my guests were in awe of how beautiful the estate and grounds were. Because the Hellenic Center was recently renovated and updated, it is so classically beautiful that you really don't even need a lot of decorations. I didn't do uplighting or over the top centerpieces. I just stuck with the chandelier lighting, candles and medium rose centerpieces and it looked absolutely gorgeous. Also, since Vinwood provides floral pieces for the the stations and bar, the place looked extra beautiful. The service provided by both Hellenic and Vinwood was exceptional - very professional, timely and smooth. Also, Tamie threw is a few extra goodies for us (e.g. wine service during dinner) at no extra cost, which really gave a special touch. Finally, the value was really great for such fantastic service, beautiful grounds and a gorgeous estate!

Our October wedding at the Hellenic Center was AMAZING. I received so many compliments, and still receive so many compliments weeks after the wedding! It is such a beautiful, breathtaking venue- and Tamie was such a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive and so helpful-... Read More she had great ideas during the planning process and always answered my emails promptly. Additionally, Mackenzie with Vinwood Caterers was also a joy to work with and was so accommodating. She had great menu suggestions, and I can't even count how many people told me it was not only the best wedding they had ever been to, but hands down the best food they had ever had at any wedding! People are still talking/asking about the butternut squash ravioli and the short ribs...they want to know where and how to get them! The day was phenomenal, and I am so glad I chose The Hellenic Center for our wedding.

The Hellenic Center beat all my expectations and we were 100% satisfied with it.

I have nothing but the very best to say about the Hellenic Center and the wonderful staff we worked with! My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the Hellenic Center this July. Tamie and Mackenzie (the event manager and coordinator) were so amazing. They genuinely... Read More cared about us and our day, and they helped to make our wedding exactly as we had pictured. It makes a big difference when you work with friendly, experienced, genuine individuals which is exactly what you get with the Hellenic Center! They were so helpful when we had questions regarding the day, and they took care of all the small details on the day of the wedding which allowed my family and I to really enjoy the day. We had several meetings leading up to the wedding which allowed us all to get to know each other and made my groom and I feel confident that the day would go smoothly. The Hellenic Center property and ballroom is absolutely gorgeous. Our ceremony was in the back lawn underneath the beautiful oak tree, our cocktail hour on the grassy patio out back, and our reception in the breath-taking ballroom! Everything on our day was timed so perfectly due to Mackenzie and Tamie's experience. The day went off without a hitch...and when you have 200+ guests at your wedding like we did, that is saying a lot. The Hellenic Center also has the best recommendations in local DJs, florists, and other vendors. We were so thankful for their welcomed advice in helping us choose our extremely talented vendors. We are so thankful to have been able to have our dream day at the Hellenic Center, and I give it the highest recommendation!!

OMG my wedding was STUNNING. The venue was everything-- private, secluded, serene, romantic, and MAGICAL. I love all the nature and greenery, as well as the outdoor patio lights strung around tree branches and along the roof of the estate. There were also outdoor chandeliers... Read More that made the venue look like a page out of a story book. Every corner was a photo op (Bharat Palmer Photography)! There is so much attention to detail that Tamie Rodolosi puts in to create the fairy tale ambiance. It truly is a DREAM VENUE and Wedding planning team for any event. I love that the venue is SO CLOSE to Gloucester. You can just sneak away at the end of the night to your cozy oceanfront hotel (Gloucester Inn By The Sea). My ceremony was held in their outdoor space on a quaint lawn. There was a giant wooden arbor with crystals and roses (Pepperberry's Flowers) where we happily said our vows. It was such a picture perfect scene. The cocktail hour was outside, signature cocktails (created by my husband and I), 2 sushi rollers, array of passed Hors d'oeuvre (Vinwood caterers) and a kick ass cigar bar for the guys. Reception was held in their indoor ballroom. The reception area was gorgeous-- beautiful fireplaces, grand piano, brand new contemporary bar, immaculate vintage restrooms, 3 sets of French doors leading to the wrap around deck with heated lamps, hardwood floors thru out --basically an enchanting estate in the woods. The service was phenomenal and all the staff (Vinwood Caterers) were friendly and helpful.
