    A Flawless Event!!!

    We had the engagement ceremony for our son here and the event was just perfect due to the efforts of the Marino family. They went above and beyond what was expected of them to help make the event a grand success.

    Can't recommend more highly!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about Birchwood Manor and about Farrell, the person who helped plan and coordinate everything for our event. We were looking for an outdoor venue to have our party, and we knew right away that this would be a lovely setting because the grounds are really beautiful. It is like having your own personal garden overlooking a mansion.

    Although it ended up raining during our entirely outdoor event, we had a tent set up with a beautiful fountain, plantings, and the grand entrance to Birchwood Manor as our backdrop. The setting was so beautiful that, even though it rained, it did not spoil a thing!

    Everyone raved about the food, the setting, the service, and the decor. There was nothing I needed to do to decorate the tent, aside from bringing some flowers. It looked just fabulous with Birchwood Manor's table settings and the backdrop of the grounds!

    Throughout the planning process, Farrell was always responsive to my requests and available to help me plan for the contingencies of a COVID party. Birchwood Manor was flexible with the minimum number of guests they required and very understanding of the unpredictability of COVID. Farrell was incredibly on top of every detail and honestly, I was entirely stress-free throughout the party knowing that she had everything covered.

    I cannot recommend Birchwood Manor more highly! I can confidently say you will be in the best hands. Several of my guests are already considering booking a party with them. And I would come back again in a heartbeat! I have been told that Birchwood Manor has many repeat customers and groups that regularly host parties there. I can completely understand why! If you are able to book your event here, this is the place to do it! I am thrilled that we decided to have our party here, and we have wonderful memories of the day.
