On Sunday, May 27th. my son and daughter-in-law were married at Glendoveers in Penfield. The dedicated staff at Glendoveers went above and beyond to make the day special and perfect for the bride groom and their 72 guests.Sent on 06/03/2018
Shannon, the events coordinator was fabulous throughout the year-long planning process (Bride and Groom live in Austin) and made suggestions that made things run smoother and were cost- saving. The location was beautiful- and we were able to use the outdoor area for the ceremony, the deck/ tent area for the cocktail reception, the patio and fire-pit for s'mores and the indoor space for dining/dancing.
Recent renovations-updating the bathrooms, new serving/buffet carts, brick and stone path landscaping were major improvements to a already picturesque venue.
We used McCarthy tent rentals for a 60" 1/2 round sweetheart table and sashes which were perfect for the high top tables on the deck. We also rented pole coverings which transformed the tent and deck space. We had rented a whole tent heater- which McCarthys allowed us to cancel without penalty when we realized the temperature was going to be in the 80s. We did purchase floor length linens for the dining tables (Glendoveers are not floor length)and high cabs in the tent (which is 1/3 the cost of renting).
We let guests know via the wedding site and email that Glendoveers offered complimentary valet parking- and it worked well. The food was delicious and served quickly to all guests. I would highly recommend this venue.

We worked with Shannon at Glendoveers as we planned our wedding reception in July. We had met her a year earlier when we explored Rochester for all sorts of venue options, but we immediately fell in love with Glendoveers. The hall has a sort of magic to it. It has soft lighting, a large dance floor, and such gorgeous natural beauty outside the hall. We had to figure out all our reception details over email and the phone because we live in California, so Shannon was incredibly accommodating for us. We were able to drop off the majority of our decorations the day before the wedding to make the day of less stressful. Shannon and her team made the hall look absolutely beautiful by the time we arrived. The cocktail hour was incredible- all the guests loved the hors d'oeuvres and the drinks and the staff took great care of everyone. The buffet dinner was equally amazing. The kids had a blast playing in the field outside and everyone loved roasting marshmallows for s'mores on their back patio. Everything was so easy for us thanks to Shannon's help. I hope to be able to attend an event there in the future because we didn't eat very much on our wedding day!Sent on 08/26/2017
