When Victoria and Christopher first got engaged, they knew they wanted a simple wedding with their closest friends and family. Victoria comes from a large Italian family. Christopher comes from a smaller Puerto-Rican Between the two families and close friends their guest list was around 80 people. When the two searched for venues around Long Island, most venues wanted at least 100-125 unless it was a weekday wedding, which we did not want to do. They claim they found Deity by a stroke of good luck and couldn’t be happier with their decision.
Transparent Wedding Package
The owner, Caio, is super down to earth and dedicated to ensuring that all of the events hosted at the venue go smoothly and as the hosts intend. Caio responded to our request for information super quickly and was very clear and transparent about what Deity was able to offer – this was extremely helpful and comforting. It made us feel like we could trust him and his staff with our special day and would know exactly what we were getting. We then were introduced to Anna, the day-of wedding coordinator, who is an absolute dream to work with. It’s clear they work very hard to perfect their service as I truly felt I did not need to do anything the day of except show up and enjoy our time. She made sure my husband and I were well taken care of and the guests never wanted for anything.
Deity Wedding Suite Addition
We opted to rent the wedding suite the morning of and it was the best decision we made for the day. Having the ability to have everyone get ready at the venue and photos done early was a dream. The space was beautiful and we did most of our photos upstairs in the suite and on the roof.
Deity Wedding Catering
The food was absolutely amazing – our guests came up to us after dinner and could not stop talking about how terrific the food was. One of the best parts of the dinner is that it is served family style so everyone got to try a bit of everything. The whole vibe of this venue is different and people really seemed to enjoy the flow of the day and the atmosphere. I did not buy a single flower as the venue did not need any additional decorating – it was perfect and simple as is.
No Regrets Over Their Wedding Venue Choice
If I could do everything all over again, Deity would still be my first choice. I don’t think I can rave enough about the staff, the space, the food, the communication. Everything was just brilliant and AFFORDABLE. It’s clear they are in this business for the happiness the comes along with owning an event space and not just about the money.
