    Jeff and Lynn’s Wedding

    Jeff and I wanted a venue with a beautiful Victorian style with outdoor as well as indoor beauty. The day was perfect! Dew on the leaves from the morning with the sun glistening! The outdoor ceremony was beautiful, white chairs and arch alter was perfect. Violinist, cocktail hour on the veranda, the beauty of the manor was exquisite. Our guests enjoyed a delicious meal, scrumptious cake and cookies all while Harvey, the owner orchestrated picture opportunities throughout the entire event. The bar was flowing and people danced the night away to a DJ that knew just what to play to keep the dance floor full! We had a wonderful start to our new married life❤️Thank you Harvey and Donna!

    Altamont Manor's reply:

    Hello Lynn and Jeff,
    What a wonderful poetic review. Thank you so much. We had a great time taking the photos as you were both so willing to have fun and work with us to take advantage of the Manor's many garden settings. I expect we'll be using a couple of your photos in our Manor materials. Thanks again. Harvey

    Beautiful Wedding!

    My husband and I always knew that we were looking for a venue that was different from the typical “wedding factory.” We were searching for a venue that offered natural beauty, a vintage/classic feel, and many options for customization. We first visited The Altamont Manor in January, and even on the bleakest of days we knew right away we had found our venue. Harvey escorted us around the snow fallen grounds, and Victorian rooms inside. Upon meeting with Harvey and hearing about all of our options, we knew this venue perfect for our Fall wedding. When choosing the venue, you are choosing Harvey and Donna’s home. This ensures the utmost care for every detail from the flowers to the leaves on the grass. I am an extremely detail oriented person with many lists and DIY desires. Harvey managed this very well, and allowed me to do all of the decorations and preparations myself. This ability to create and set up the many personal touches for my big day was very important to me, and not allowed in many traditional venues. Harvey and Donna also photographed our wedding day, and made for such a seamless and well planned day. About 30 minutes before our ceremony, it poured rain. I really had dreamed of our ceremony outside down by the pond, and when the rain cleared with 5 minutes to spare Harvey and Donna helped gather all of our guests outside for the ceremony. Their level of flexibility and reassurance that all would go to plan truly set my mind at ease. I would highly recommend The Altamont Manor for any couple looking for a different experience from your traditional wedding factory. You will be guaranteed a personal and memorable day.

    Altamont Manor's reply:

    Hello Maggie,
    I think you're probably one of the luckiest brides we've ever had at the Altamont Manor. You managed to have it stop raining for not only the ceremony but we were able to squeeze in outdoor photos in between periods of rain. :-)). I appreciate your sending us a Christmas card using one of the photos. I remember all us walking past the Manor, across the parking lot and part way up the driveway for the shot. The whole time I'm thinking "come on, come on we have to get back and beat the rain. We're living on borrowed time and we have so many other shots to get in." And then to hear that you just got back from your honeymoon to St. Lucia, beating the probable upcoming Covid travel restrictions makes me think that you do have a guardian angel.

    I also want to thank you for recognizing the extra effort we put in to make each couple's wedding special. To quote from your review "I am an extremely detail oriented person with many lists and DIY desires. Harvey managed this very well, and allowed me to do all of the decorations and preparations myself." I'm heartened by that comment in particular because one of the statements that we make to prospective couples that visit is that we truly help them get the wedding of their dreams. Let's face it, every venue promises the moon when they're selling. Your comment gives credibility to our statement. It's not just "selling and promising," ...it's delivering on that promise. Thanks so much

    Amazing venue!

    I had my baby shower here in late September and it was perfect! The venue was stunning and the grounds were gorgeously kept. Everyone who we worked with was kind, responsive, helpful, and patient, and the day went by without a hitch. The setting looked like a scene from a fairytale, and I can’t say enough good things about this place. Thank you to the entire Altamont Manor family!

    Altamont Manor's reply:

    Hi Julianna,
    Thank you for sharing your experience at the Altamont Manor. While the event was in the dining room it was heartening to see virtually everyone who attended go out to the sunken garden to enjoy the day further and take lots of photos. Thank you again.
    Harvey

The Altamont Manor is a spectular place to celebrate a Wedding Day! The Victorian Manor is beautiful! The grounds are picture perfect! Great setting for your Wedding Ceremony. Harvey is one of nicest guys in the business! 5 STARS!

DJ Greg Frasier DJ Greg Frasier Wedding DJs

As a disc jockey, the Altamont Manor is one of my favorite places to work. Harvey keeps his grounds and garden beautifully groomed. Inside, the space makes me feel like it's a party in someone's home. When I turn up the music after dinner, there's enough room for everyone to get out there and have fun. I'm not the prop and group dance type of DJ, so my style fits right in.
