We had our wedding at Lyndhurst this October 2019 and it was truly amazing. There are so many awesome things about Lyndhurst, starting with 1) The venue itself is gorgeous - you cannot beat watching the sunset over the Hudson from the mansion’s veranda during cocktail hour. We were able to take pictures inside the art gallery which was so special and felt like stepping back in time 2) The food is delicious and there are so many options! We got so many compliments about the food and the service - all the servers were super on top of things and very knowledgeable/accomodating with allergies. I wish that they had a restaurant so I could eat the food over and over again - seriously, it was that good 3) Tayla, the event and catering manager, is so awesome! She is so knowledgeable, communicative, and made the whole process so easy. We loved working with her and would do it all again in a heartbeat. This venue is truly magical and we had such an unforgettable celebration here.Sent on 10/10/2019

I highly recommend everyone at Lyndhurst, from planning to every detail they were there to answer every question. Every vendor we chose, they worked closely with and communicated with them so everything and everyone was on the same page. You can hire any vendor but the ones the recommended were AMAZING. Highly recommend Lyndhurst and the team there!Sent on 04/04/2019

Rough start, but in the end it was amazing!
We initially booked Lyndhurst Mansion (who works exclusively with Philip Stone Caterers) in November 2016, almost two years before our wedding. Not going to lie, while our initial booking process was very smooth, we actually ended up seeing both our original venue coordinator and her replacement leave! It was pretty rough around the year-before-the-wedding mark when we were trying to get our second payment in.Sent on 10/20/2018
However, third time is the charm. Brandon, who is currently the coordinator for Philip Stone at Lyndhurst, is absolutely amazing, and his team is equally awesome. Brandon is extremely responsive, and answered all of my emails very promptly and patiently (and he was definitely patient -- there were multiple days in the month before the wedding when I'd send multiple emails). He and his team are completely on top of things; our cocktail hour and reception went off without any issues, and they rolled with it when things like my entire extended family showing up two hours early happened.
Also, THE FOOD. Our guests raved about it. One of my friends dreams about the Meyer lemon puree in the sea bass entree. My big worry was that the food day of would not be as good as the tasting, but that turned out to be completely unfounded. My uncle that complains about literally everything even complimented it.
I do also want to mention my bridal attendant, Jeannie, who I didn't know I needed before the wedding, but ended up being my crutch throughout the day of; I don't know what I would've done without her.
In short, everything about our wedding at Lyndhurst was amazing. The mansion (so beautiful, and we loved the Halloween decor/scarecrows), the food/drinks, the Philip Stone team and their handling of logistics (seriously, I didn't have to worry about anything!), the servers (who we have a video of dancing to Whip/Nae Nae -- super cute!), everything. Thank you guys so much. :)
We LOVE Lyndhurst Castle , if you are looking for elegant venue look no further! The ambiance, food and staff are amazing.
