Boarding Italo at Mestre with Booking from Santa Lucia

Hello everyone, just a quick question for travelling on Italo trains between Venice and Florence. I booked a ticket from Venice Santa Lucia to Florence Santa Maria Novella on Saturday morning, but for various reasons I might end up at Mestre at the time of departure. Looking at Italo's website, it seems like the same train goes through Mestre station as well. My question is: is it okay for me to just board that train from Mestre, or do I need to go to Venice SL to board the train? Could this cause any problems in acquiring the seat assigned to me? (There is only one Italo train to Florence in the morning, so I don't expect any confusion in getting on the right train.)

Thanks guys. For future reference, I also ended up talking to the agent at Italo's office inside Venice SL station, who confirmed that boarding at Mestre would be okay.
