    10/10 would recommend!

    Emerson Park is an absolutely perfect place to get married if you want an industrial feel paired with a beautiful lake view and a wonderful staff. My favorite things about the venue were having two very separate rooms for cocktail hour and the reception, the breezeway, and the ability for guests to sit outside if they wanted. We ended up with a beautiful day in September, and about half of my guests sat in the rocking chairs or cocktail tables outside or mingled around the beautiful fountain and lake. Andrea was absolutely amazing and was with me through the entire process, no matter how silly the question. She met with me several times to make sure my day and decor were perfect....and they turned out to be! She worked so hard to make my day perfect and even delivered me a glass of wine at dinner. Her staff was also incredible, making sure to pay extra attention to me and my husband. We love Emerson!!

    Beautiful finger lakes venue that does it all!

    I can’t imagine a more beautiful scene than the flower fountain with Owasco lake in the background. Our ceremony was one from my dreams! The transition from ceremony to cocktail to reception is seamless. It’s great to have everything in one beautiful venue.
    Andrea from A&M catering was great to work with. We originally booked in 2019 for a 2020 wedding and ended up in August 2021. Andrea was there to answer our questions and help us every step of the way. She ran day of logistics which was great to have a coordinator built in to the venue.
    The food and drink that comes with the venue was amazing too. Our guests loved their meals, the signature drinks were great, and I ate so many appetizers!
    If you have a chance, book this venue. You won’t regret it!!

    Fantastic Experience! Amazing Wedding

    Not only is the venue huge and with a beautiful setting the staff and Andrea were fantastic to work with. Planning a wedding is stressful, especially during a pandemic but Andrea was very understanding and never pressured us and we were able to have the wedding of our dreams. The wait staff was kind and responsive and took care of all our needs. I recommend booking the both rooms at the venue because having spaces for both cocktail hour and the reception was awesome plus extra restrooms. The food was fantastic, we did family style which is a great option to allow guest to have more options! I am so happy we had our wedding at Emerson Park!
