We had our wedding at Lyndhurst this August and it was amazing! The venue is beautiful on its own and Brandon helped to make sure everything was perfect. Leading up to the wedding he was able to meet with us a number of times, go over the details and answer any questions we had. He did his best to make sure we were happy. The day of the wedding he helped to make sure everything went off without a hitch. It was great!Sent on 08/27/2018

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.
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 held my daughter's wedding reception at Lyndhurst at the end of May 2018. It could not have been more beautiful, and the food (catered by Philip Stone Caterers) was -- by far -- the best I have had at any wedding. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was and how professional and accommodating the service was.
The cocktail reception on the porch of the mansion and on the lawn running down to the Hudson River was stunning; and the tent, carriage house, and patio provided a comfortable and beautiful location for dinner, gathering and dancing.
If I had another wedding to plan, I would definitely have it at Lyndhurst.
We LOVE Lyndhurst Castle , if you are looking for elegant venue look no further! The ambiance, food and staff are amazing.
