Dream come true!
Emerson Park is the most gorgeous venue - both inside and out! Andrea, Michael, and the team at A&M Catering are the best in the business. Even during the pandemic, they helped us have our dream wedding!! Andrea is so kind, creative, and caring. She has the most amazing ideas, and she and Michael are the best team to make those visions come to life. Andrea and Michael were so accommodating in every single way. We had to postpone our wedding due to the pandemic, and Andrea and Michael never charged us any extra or changed any fees. Andrea and Michael are so honest, and bring such human compassion to their business! You will feel like you're having a casual, relaxing conversation with your new best friend when you speak with them. The pavilion is a blank slate that allows you to transform the space to accommodate your own style and vision. The catering is absolutely phenomenal! We have multiple tricky food allergies in our family, and this was accommodated from the start - at both the tasting and the actual wedding. As someone who hasn't eaten a restaurant meal in over 3 years, having a fully safe meal was a huge treat, and our guests never even noticed that anything was missing! Amazing!! We were so pleased that we could have a fun, beautiful, and SAFE wedding - even during the pandemic! Thank you for making our dreams come true, Andrea and Michael!!!Sent on 09/25/2020

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

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.
