    Granger - A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood!

    My daughter recently held her wedding reception at Granger after riding in the horse-drawn carriage from the marriage at St. John's down the street. I cannot say enough good about the Granger staff, especially Collen, who was not only flexible, but responded promptly too all my questions over the 6 months prior to the celebration. She also worked very well with my wedding planner. The reception in the tent in the side yard was perfect, and we had the grounds for carriage rides and lawn games. We made use of the beautiful side porch when introducing the wedding party, and the sunset in front provided a lovely background for a photo of the newlyweds. The guests loved wandering through the beautiful mansion, and, also, the neighborhood as there made their way from church to reception. Many guests stayed in neighboring Bed & Breakfasts and Airbnb's. A reception at Granger was a wonderful way to showcase the City of Canandaigua, where we live!

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, Pam! Erika and Sean are a beautiful couple, and Mother Nature seemed to be shining down on them that day as well. It was truly such a pleasure to work with you, as well as Emily, and it was such a joy to look out, and see guests enjoying the day, either on the porches, on the dance floor, or just walking the grounds. Thank you again, and our best to Erika and Sean for a life time of love and happiness.

    Everything was perfect! We celebrated my grandmother's 100th birthday with about 75 guests at the Granger Homestead. The Home was the perfect place with the beautiful Chandeliers and the grand formal (but comfortable) setting.
    The guests loved the Home and raved about the party.
    Colleen was wonderful to work with. She was very helpful with suggesting the best table set up and places for the bar. I was hesitant to place the bar in the far room and Colleen was right. The guests will find the bar wherever you place it! It actually worked well in that room. There was plenty of room to move about and the bartender could easily get extra supplies from the back room as needed. Colleen was very patient with me as I tried to rearrange the set up even the day before the event! Colleen personally grabbed extra tables and assisted with all the extras as needed. She was there during the event and quickly responded to our extra needs.
    We used the Home's china. It was beautiful. The silverware was elegant.
    Grandma loved the event. Thank you to Granger Homestead and staff!

    As a history teacher I knew having a historic touch would be important to me - the Granger did not disappoint!! The day before my wedding I stopped by and the house was absolutely spotless for our day! The house is elegant without being pretentious and my guests raved about how beautiful it was! With our 93 guests we chose to use the house for our cocktail hour and set up a heated tent right outside the beautiful porch for dinner and dancing, it worked wonderfully and guests had the opportunity to move between the house and the tent all night! Colleen was always kind and attentive and went above and beyond to make sure everything was as we envisioned it. The price is VERY reasonable compared to other places AND you would be supporting the preservation of a landmark home as well! If you are looking for an elegant, warm location I cannot recommend this place enough!

    Thank you so much for your kind review, Amanda. I hope you and Richard are enjoying married life. I always love seeing a couples vision for their day, and utilizing the mansion along with the tent, was a great idea. I've got to say, it looked like your candy bar was a great hit, and that sunset, prior to your entrance, was exceptionally gorgeous. Thank you again, and all my best to you both! - Colleen
