As soon as Matt and I walked foot on the grounds of Emerson we fell in love! Then we met the sweetest person ever, our coordinator Andrea. She was amazing to work with every step of the way. The day of our wedding I was not worried about anything because her and her staff were so well organized and knew exactly what to do. Also her and our DJ, Rocko- from RD Entwrainment, worked so well together. I had lots of questions throughout the process, but Andrea was always there with an answer. The venue itself is fabulous. The lake is a great background and the fountain is beautiful with the flowers. We had the cocktail hour room and the reception hall which worked out perfectly! Not to mention that the food was to die for!!! Again, I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for an amazing, beautiful, reasonable wedding!Sent on 07/18/2016

Best venue ever
BEST VENUE EVER. I can’t say enough good things about this venue and the amazing people running it. The food was amazing, there was so much room to move around and more importantly dance. They accommodated everything I asked and helped with everything which made the experience stress free. We had an amazing band and the stage was PERFECT. Not to mention the venue itself is stunning. I promise you will not regret getting married at Emerson Park!Sent on 03/01/2019

Best day ever!
My husband and I got married at Emerson park in August and we had the best day! Everything about our experience with Andrea was wonderful. She truly made the entire planning process so easy and always made me feel at ease. Andrea was always prompt with responses and had great recommendations when I needed them. Our guests had a blast and several said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. All of the staff was so attentive and kind to our guests. Andrea made sure everything went off with out a hitch on our wedding day and I never had to worry about a thing, instead I was able to celebrate with all my family and friends. I would absolutely recommend Emerson Park for a wedding and would do it all over again in a heart beat!Sent on 11/11/2018

Great wedding venue for large or small events.
Professional staff and a beautiful location for such a special day. The food is always fantastic and perfectly executed. One of my favorite places to work!
This is a beautiful spot for a wedding right on Owasco Lake. H and J Hospitality do an amazing job with any function held in this terrific venue.
