My husband and I were married here in the fall and we could not have been happier with the whole experience! Kristen was attentive, organized and so helpful from the start, she knew what we needed, when we needed it and always kept us on task....
Noah’s food was the best compliment to the gorgeous setting. The moment I stepped foot in the theater I knew this was the right place for us. We are movie lovers and the fact that we were able to showcase our interests with every detail was not lost on us or any of our guests! From the moment we and our guests arrived on site, with epic movie scores playing under a marquee with our names on it, we were blown away! Nearly 5 months later we are still flying high, and still receiving endless compliments on the whole evening. We wish we could have our wedding every year! Well worth the time, effort and expense to have such a unique space to ourselves for the most important day of our lives!

Our wedding happened over 3 months ago and to this day, friends and family are still talking about how amazing the theater was. Between the staff being extremely friendly and accommodating, the amazing food and the overall beauty of the theater...
, our guests were left in awe. Kristen went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. I have a one year old and I was nervous the whole night about her but Kristen consistently throughout the night made sure she I had everything I needed for her which made me feel at ease. I also had to reach out to her a few days after the wedding since someone lost a bracelet which was found and she mailed it to me. Her professionalism is really something rare to come by. She made sure to communicate with us about everything before moving forward. We took her advice and opinions with practically everything, we couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out. Above all things, Kristen is honest about everything and such a down to earth human. We could laugh and joke with her and knew it was genuine and that is something my husband and I truly valued above all things. The tech team was also extremely helpful and awesome. All the videos played perfectly, lighting was phenomenal and there were no hiccups with sound. My husband, myself and our guests couldn’t have been happier. If we could, down the road, we would have one of anniversaries there. Thank you so so SO much Kristen, Jamie, Melissa and the wonderful staff at the theater for making our night out of this world. You guys rock 🤘❤️

fect. Not only was the classic and unique aesthetic exactly right for the romantic and whimsical wedding we were planning, but the staff and technicians working with us this last year run as tight of a ship as any theatre we have ever worked for.
Our venue coordinator, Kristen, is more organized than even my own type-A little heart. You are in good hands with her running your “show.” She is thorough, detailed, and truly gave us the sense that she was just as invested in the success of the day as we were. We’re still fielding comments from our bridal party about just how stellar Kristen was and how she managed to make one of the most stressful days of our lives flow so smoothly. Kristen is a multi-tasking, organized, accessible, sweet, and professional all-star.
The food was absolutely incredible, and we haven’t stopped hearing from guests who can’t get over the dessert and hors d’ouvres.
Book this venue. Seriously. From start to finish, we never doubted if we had made the right choice.

Our wedding in May 2019 was truly an unforgettable evening that was only possible due to the hard work of Kristen and the amazing staff at the Suffolk Theater. They were so organized and easy to work with that we didn't even need a wedding plan...
ner. The venue is stunning and made our wedding such a unique experience. We do not have one single regret down to the last detail, all of which were executed to perfection. Even our name in lights outside the theater greeting our guests was such a cool touch. If you plan to have a band, the theater is ideal and sounds beyond great. The food was catered by Noah's in Greenport and was delicious. We had a tasting weeks before to nail down the menu. Everything, and I mean everything was top notch!

e Suffolk Theater. Kristen’s organized ingenuity made the day run seamlessly! During all the months planning our special day, the theater staff was the most accommodating, caring, attentive people and it was a pleasure working with them all. I had a vision for my wedding day and the production team brought it to life. We had around 200 guests attending and I know that at at least one point in the night we had everyone on the dance floor with no issues at all! This space lends itself so beautifully to a wedding of any size. Our guests complimented the production quality, the wait staff/bartenders and the food! OMG the food! Chef Noah absolutely blew us out of the water with his assorted cocktail hour menu, his dinner entrees and the pass around desserts. If I had to do the day all over again (and I wish I could!) I wouldn’t change a thing. Because of the Suffolk Theater, I was able to have my dream wedding.

Our venue coordinator, Kristen, went above and beyond for us. She was attentive, passionate and above all else a good person. That’s the one thing you want on your wedding day is a good person who understands how much this day means.

rfect. It was big enough to fit our guest list and it didn't break the bank. Not to mention, it was BEAUTIFUL. We got so many compliments on our venue choice. Kristen was wonderful. She started working here just 2 months before our wedding but she definitely did not act like a newbie. She let me text her whenever I wanted and always responded. You could tell it was very important to her that we had the wedding of our dreams. The design team also went all out for us. We wanted slideshows throughout our ceremony and they worked so hard to ensure they were perfect. The only warning I would give people is don't choose this if you're not into details. It was perfect for us because we wanted a personal and customizable wedding. However, if you don't want extra work and just want to show up and make no decisions I don't think you'd be taking advantage of this venue. Since it's not a cookie-cutter wedding factory there are a million decisions to be made. Nothing is set in stone, which we loved. You can basically decide on every detail of your entire reception. Thank you to everyone at the Suffolk Theatre! Our venue was the best!

rticular on my location and details, I was very nervous, but that being said the day wasn't anything short of exceptional. Nicole and her team were awesome & took such great care of us. The food was hot, the timeline was on point and the staff was very accommodating.
This venue is for the unique Bride & Groom that want something away from the traditional country club or "wedding factory." Nicole saw my vision and was able to bring it to life. She was able to transform a theater into a reception that looked like it belonged in a scene from The Great Gatsby. The lighting and sound was phenomenal. We had scenes from old movies, playing on the large screen on the stage. It was exactly what we wanted...a PARTY! It was a magical, unforgettable night.
If you are thinking about having your wedding here, do it! It was worth every single penny.

sband, John, to get married in. We're both creative and couldn't picture having our wedding at some stuffy old catering hall. From the moment I walked into The Suffolk Theater in person, I was blown away by it's beauty and how truly, every single detail has been meticulously restored. Meeting and working with Nicole Evers, the event director, was the highlight of the entire process and I could NOT, absolutely could not have have pulled off this wedding of close to 200 people without her. I cannot say enough good things about how organized, calming, amazing, smart, creative, and nice she is! She left no detail un-turned and was by my side the entire time to make sure everything was going smoothly. I also cannot sing enough the praises of the entire production team, including Chip and Clutch, who were AMAZING at what they do and delivered a truly awe inspiring event. Not to mention Reverend Lynn Ann, who wrote a beautiful, thoughtful, and incredibly touching ceremony for John and I - she genuinely delivered the exact ceremony we wanted that was true to who we are all, and Reverend Lynn is an amazing person who I feel blessed to have met. Now onto the party...the food, the drinks! Where to even begin! The food was a massive hit, a huge rarity at most weddings, and the drinks were flowing in generous amounts. I just cannot express how thrilled I am with how the entire wedding turned out and I am eternally grateful to the entire staff at The Suffolk Theater for making this wedding so memorable, incredible, and hard to top. Every guest has indicated weddings will probably suck to attend after this one. Thank you to ALL for making my day truly amazing, and thank you to Nicole for helping me plan it all and execute it flawlessly!!!

ant the responsibility of transforming a totally diy space. The Suffolk theater gave us the best of both worlds. We were able to work with their amazing production team (shout out to Chip and Clutch!) to add personal details that we came up with, but still had the comfort of knowing every wedding detail was being taken care of by the staff. Speaking of the production team, I cannot say enough about their abilities and creativity. From the sound they got out of the band, the lighting, the videos they put together for the projection screen, just EVERYTHING! They are so professional and you can rest easy knowing your day is in great hands (let them use their creativity and have fun, I promise you won't be disappointed). The venue in itself was so unique and every guest was blown away the entire evening. It was amazing to see people just walking around and exploring every detail. And last but absolutely not least, the event coordinator Nicole Evers is an absolute gem. I don't even think gem is a strong enough word for what she brings to this venue. She helped us from day one create a day neither of us would forget. She meticulously planned out our entire day and not a detail was left out. She was a calming presence throughout the whole experience and process and encouraged us to be ourselves and express our creativity. She helped us come up with ideas that both complimented the space and its history, as well as our story. I would honestly get married in a dump if I knew she was the event coordinator there. I feel so lucky to be able to call her a friend after all of this! If you want to have an amazing wedding put your trust into this team of people. They will not let you down.

different possible wedding venues in Suffolk County and the only one that was truly outstanding to me was the Suffolk Theater. What really finalized our decision to have the wedding at the theater was our meeting with the private event coordinator Nicole Evers. Nicole made us feel that our wedding could be a truly special event and that she was going to ensure that our vision became reality. Nicole helped us through every step of the planning process. She had interesting ideas and she knows how to get the most out of what the theater has to offer. Nicole made us feel like our wedding was the most important event that she had ever coordinated. Every last detail was planned in advance and there were no surprises on the day of the wedding. The fact that it is an operating performing arts theater provides you with unlimited possibilities. We were able to work directly with the theater technical staff to personalize every detail of the day. Some of the special touches that were added included: our names up on the theater marquee and a photo montage was projected onto the theater sized screen during dinner. The wedding ceremony itself was personal, warm and expertly officiated by Lynn Kolesar who also works at the theater. She helped us craft a most thoughtful and touching wedding ceremony which took place in the spotlight on the stage. The lighting and sound quality was perfect.Two other areas that were very important to us were the quality of the food and the bar. Both of these exceeded our expectations.The bar was without question the best bar that we have ever seen at a wedding. I want to thank Nicole Evers, Kaitlyn Ferris, DJ Phil, Lynn Kolesar, the technical staff, the chef and the wait staff!

If you just want a magnificent place to have your wedding, don't opt for the theatrics, and just enjoy the decor and the fabulous space. The food is excellent, you get to meet the chef and they give you a tour of the kitchen! We felt like family there and had nothing but compliments from our guests.

The SHINING STAR of the night was Nicole Evers, the Director of Private Events. She is a talented, organized and caring professional. I felt safe the moment she took on the position and began handling our wedding. She thought of and executed EVERYTHING. She coordinated outside vendors, helped me brainstorm, listened to and calmed my fears, and ultimately visualized and produced the absolute wedding of our dreams.
I know we're biased, but we thought our's was the best, most beautifully unique wedding ever that exceeded all expectations. The theater's charm, vintage beauty and staff truly made an impression on us. We will never forget our special day at the Suffolk Theater!!
It has been close to 2 months since we married at the theater and all of our guests are still raving about how beautiful and unique our wedding was!
