    Versatile and Gorgeous Venue; Experienced Coordinating; Great Food!

    I fell in love with this beautiful, versatile venue from the moment I arrived. I was impressed by Melissa's experience, the ease of working with Melissa, the wonderfully delicious food and especially the versatility of the site. Regardless of what Mother Nature was going to through at us, we were going to be covered (literally) at the Hudson Manor. Melissa was prepared to run with the ball and give us a wonderful ceremony and reception. However, our Chaplain and I wanted a specific format for the wedding itself and Melissa stepped back and let us do exactly what we wanted. For the reception, we were thrilled to let Melissa coordinate it all. She knew what things we wanted to do and executed it flawlessly! My husband and I were thrilled that she gave us exactly what we wanted and it went as smooth as silk. I cannot recommend Melissa, her talented chef (her hubby) and her extraordinary staff, highly enough. Thank you Melissa and Hudson Manor!

    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!!

    Hudson Manor's reply:

    Thank you Amanda! Wow, such a heartfelt review, I'm truly humbled. I am so happy for you both and ecstatic that you were trilled with the day. Best wishes always! Melissa

    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.

    Hudson Manor's reply:

    Thank you so much for your lovely review! It was truly our pleasure to work with you and your amazing family. We're thrilled that you enjoyed your experience, even though this trying time. We are grateful to you and your daughter and new son in law for choosing The Hudson Manor and sticking with your date regardless of the crazy circumstances Covid provided. Best wishes to all! Melissa & Glenn
