What our clients say about us

“What an incredible discovery to have found Maison May for our wedding! My husband and I were looking for something homey and still intimate feeling with 75 people and this space was the perfect fit. Catherine and Claudia from the beginning were open and honest and clearly interested in our personal vision and the best way to manifest that at their venue. Our guests all felt tapped into the energy cultivated by the space and we all had such a memorable experience. THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE! If food is your priority, then this venue NEEDS to be considered! So delicious! Pre-event planning was thorough and smooth and the staff on sight that day were beyond accommodating. If you’re looking for something with an old Brooklyn vibe and contemporary twist that is warm and inviting and generates a natural atmosphere of love and togetherness then this is definitely the venue for you. Thank you, Maison May!”

“We couldn’t be happier with our choice of wedding venue! Between the classic brownstone look, the intimate feel, the impeccable food and service, and the helpful and kind organizers, it was truly the perfect place for such an important event. We highly recommend this venue for any event!”

– Anne-Sophie & Nathaniel, Brownstone Wedding November 2022

“This venue is perfect for couples that are looking for an intimate space that feels like a beautiful home. The entire team (Claudia, Catherine, Sara) were an absolute pleasure to work with and were very responsive throughout the whole process. The space itself is gorgeous and the food & drinks were delicious. This venue allows for a nearly turn-key experience so that hiring a wedding planner was not necessary for our specific vision.”

– Sunny & Henry, Brownstone Wedding October 2022

“The team at Maison May was so wonderful to work with and so understanding and flexible with us throughout many COVID-related postponements. If you are looking for a beautiful and unique venue for a smaller wedding (we had about 60-ish guests), this is definitely the spot. The food and drink is lightyears ahead of what is offered at most venues, and the team here knows how to transform the space to throw the best possible party. I am very pleased with our choice and recommend Maison May to anybody looking for a unique and high-value Brooklyn venue!”

– Brekke & Andrew, Brownstone Wedding, May, 2022

“We just had our wedding ceremony and brunch reception at Maison May Dekalb, and we are so happy that we did! The space is elegant and intimate, the food was absolutely delicious, and the team made the day run seamlessly. Proof of vaccination was checked at the door, so everyone felt safe and in good hands. Catherine and Claudia were a joy to work with, and they really made this a wonderful experience, both during the planning and on the day-of. Many of our guests openly told us this was one of their favorite and unique weddings – we couldn’t agree more!”

– Sydney & Jeff, Brownstone Wedding October 2021

“We had our wedding here and it was absolutely perfect! They were incredibly easy to work with leading up to the wedding and day of the big day. Note, we had a smaller wedding (82 people) and wouldn’t recommend going any bigger as it would definitely be more cramped. However, for a smaller wedding this space is amazing. Our guests were talking about the food and space for days after the wedding. We had an open bar with his & her drinks and those were also a huge hit. We utilized the garden, downstairs and parlor room upstairs throughout the night to keep an open flow. I would 100% recommend for an intimate Brooklyn wedding. We also had a family brunch here the day after the wedding and again, the service and food did not disappoint!”
