My husband and I have never been one to care much for drowning in debt to pay for a wedding, so it was incredibly difficult to find a venue/wedding coordinator on Long Island that didn't patronize/judge us for seeking a small, intimate wedding. The wedding is primarily about our marriage, not the guests--and we were honored enough to find that loving support from Danford's incredible team. A very special shout out to Christine, Alexa, Vicky, Gabby, and Tia for helping us celebrate a daytime wedding of 77 guests that cost a total of less than $7,000. You heard that right, a wedding does NOT have to break your bank, and CAN be something you two look forward to saving up towards. Christine, the wedding planner, is so attentive. She provided months of open communication via phone/email as well as flexibility with our requests that strayed away from traditional wedding practices. For instance we didn't have a DJ--we played music through a Spotify playlist, we didn't bring additional decorations as the venue was beautifully decorated for the holidays, and we had the option to opt out of a cocktail hour and replace it with simply a few appetizers prior to the main courses. Christine showed initiative when she noticed something we missed, and it was a privilege to work with her. Vicky, the banquet manager/Maître d', provided the most delicious menu that everybody just RAVED about. Seriously. The food at Danford's is unlike any other wedding food--they provide the most flavorful, filling, and diverse selection of food that also accommodates to all dietary restrictions. Vicky also coordinated directly with my maid of honor and pastor regarding every detail the day of so that we didn't have to experience an ounce of stress. Alexa and her kind-hearted personality helped us coordinate room blocks and hotel reservations for our guests and wedding party. We can't thank her enough for taking care of our guests while simultaneously making us feel so special at Danford's. Gabby is an incredible member of the team who was like an angel that popped out of nowhere. She bustled my dress without asking, packed the extra plates for guests who did not make it to the wedding + had them sent to our hotel room afterwards, and graciously coordinated the catering team around our busy photography schedule. Last but not least, thank you so much Tia for always picking up our phone calls and passing our message along to the rest of the team without fail. Because of Tia, there wasn't any miscommunication during the wedding planning when I wasn't able to reach the others. I never write reviews for anything, but I just have to for Danford's because I'm so honored to have experienced a perfect wedding. And by perfect I mean that my husband and I got to hang out with all of our friends and family, shed so many tears of joy and laughter, and didn't worry about a thing because we had the professionalism and support from the Danford's team. If you're a couple reading this and you guys just don't have the energy to spend $50,000 on a wedding, I can personally guarantee you two a beautiful, elegant, and unforgettable wedding at Danford's.Sent on 12/30/2019

Amazing Spot for a Hotel Block!
We had the best time having our wedding block at Danfords! First off, the location is beautiful! We also worked with Alexa who was amazing! She was extremely sweet and so responsive. One time I was being a crazy bride and asked how many plugs were in the suite we were planning on getting ready in and she went and counted them all to confirm (lol). We also had our next day brunch in one of the rooms and Alexa made it go off without a hitch! We were extremely happy with our time and experience with Danfords. If I could give any advice it would be to try to reserve as many rooms as you will need for your hotel block since it is a small hotel and books up fast. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 02/22/2020

Great food, great service. A week before our wedding, our main contact had left Danfords. But the new wedding sales coordinator is much more eager and responsive than the previous woman we worked with. Vicky the Maitre’D is amazing.Sent on 08/08/2019
