Best Day Ever!
There are not enough positive words to describe our experience at Hudson Manor and with their coordinator Melissa! She made the ENTIRE planning process as stress-free as possible. From the first time my now husband and I toured it and sat down with Melissa, we knew that is where we wanted to get married! The grounds are beautiful, the house is spectacular, and the area is quaint and quiet. Within the week of booking, Melissa had already locked down our photographer (Chris Nieto) and DJ (Taylormade DJ service), whom she highly recommended and we were not disappointed with either! Throughout the whole planning time frame she would check in and keep us on track with what needed to be done and when. She took the guesswork out of it, which was such a relief, as it can be stressful when working full-time and taking care of a farm. Planning a wedding during Covid also threw some unknowns in the mix, but Melissa was always the first to reassure us that it would still be the best day of our lives and it truly was.
On wedding day the nerves kick in and you just want everything to go smooth, and be perfect and it absolutely was. Melissa walked us through every aspect of our day and it went off without a hitch. I COULD NOT have wanted it to go any other way. We had multiple friends and family tell us this was the best wedding they had ever been to. Melissa's husband is the chef and the food was to die for. She was genuinely happy for us and thinking back on the day, it was absolutely the best day of our lives! I 10 out of 10 recommend Hudson Manor for your big day!!

Excellent service and Covid friendly
Planning a wedding during a global pandemic is not something we ever expected to do, but Melissa was so helpful and professional. She offered additional dates and was very flexible given the circumstances. We truly could not have asked for a better experience, and we are so grateful! The wedding was so beautiful, and they were careful to follow mandates without making us feel like we were in the twilight zone - a lot of care and thought behind every decision. We highly recommend this venue for its beauty, value, and truly excellent service.Sent on 07/24/2020
