Commonwealth Companies Weddings

You’ve found it. Unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime elegance—well within reach.

You’ve already made the most important decision—whom to spend your life with. Now you’re realizing that this decision comes along with a whole lot of other choices, like where to host the biggest event of your life.

Venue is everything. It says so much about who you are and what kind of event you want to have. Will it be all white tie and champagne? Glitz and glam? Great Gatsby chic? Old world elegance? Understated and relaxed? Refined and sophisticated? A breathtaking, over-the-top event of the century? An immersive weekend getaway that—literally and figuratively—transports your guests?

It all starts with place. Place is more than four walls. It’s the feeling your guests get when they step through the door. Will their jaws drop?

When you select the right setting, you won’t have to blow your budget on décor. The venue itself will bring your vision to life. And you can still customize to your heart’s content. Think of it like starting with a filet mignon instead of a hot dog: You can add all your favorite toppings to either dish, but they’ll never compare.

The best part: The filet mignon doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. When elegance, sophistication, and unparalleled taste are built right into the venue, a high-class event is simply part of the package.

We’ve provided the backdrop to the region’s most unforgettable, talked-about, Instagrammed, Pinterest-boarded, flawlessly executed wedding ceremonies, receptions, cocktail hours, groom’s dinners, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, gift openings, and more.

Whether your event calls for the tranquil privacy of a secluded island or the chic glamour of a historic urban penthouse, Commonwealth Companies deliver an unparalleled blend of elegance and service.

Our dedicated, professional catering staff is ready to attend to each detail, from event design to impeccable execution. We listen closely and help create a unique event that's tailored from start to finish, with a broad array of décor, entertainment, and menu options.
