House of the Redeemer/Fabbri Mansion is a historic wedding venue located in New York, New York. Built between 1914 and 1916 as the home of Edith Fabbri, the mansion was designed by Grosvenor Atterbury in the Italian Renaissance style. In 1949 the manor became a religious retreat and continues today as a sanctuary for people of all faiths to seek reflection, study, and prayer. This place of worship and hospitality also welcomes couples to celebrate their momentous occasion in a unique and breathtaking setting.
Facilities and Capacity
House of the Redeemer/Fabbri Mansion was designed and decorated to resemble an Italian palazzo. This is evident in the building’s L-shaped floor plan, interior courtyard, window enhancements, and heavy stone cornice. Visitors enter through large oak doors, which open up to marble steps that lead to a set of wrought iron doors and the entrance hall. This foyer is both elegant and minimalist and is characterized by coffered ceilings, earth-tone tiles, and patina on the wood benches and tables. Intimate ceremonies of 30 are held in the second-floor chapel, a former formal drawing room that features a carved mantel, coffered ceilings, and leaded-glass windows. Larger celebrations of up to 100 can be hosted in the library, which also serves as the centerpiece and treasure of the house. This library was constructed with woodwork that was originally built for a 16th-century Ducal palace just outside of Urbino, Italy. Edith Fabbri purchased this wood during WWI and had it transported across the Atlantic in two separate ships in case one was sunk by U-boats. This stunning hall is lined with books and features a grand piano, an Aeolian player organ, a ceiling medallion, and even a secret room.
After exchanging their vows, newlyweds and their loved ones can make their way outside to the courtyard for their cocktail hour. Dinner is then served in the Refectory, which is furnished with Italian Baroque furniture, 17th-century Flemish landscapes, and 18th-century Venetian paintings. House of the Redeemer/Fabbri Mansion also has a full kitchen that caterers can utilize to prepare the reception meal. The staff invites couples to get in touch and learn about pricing and availability for their big day.
