My husband and I had our wedding at the Mohonk Mountain House on Memorial Day weekend 2016 and we can’t gush about it enough. It was magical; the Mohonk staff went way above-and-beyond to make our wedding vision come true and everything blew my expectations when it came together.
After months of searching, we tried Mohonk at my husband’s suggestion and immediately fell in love. We worked with Mohonk wedding coordinator Aimee Ciarimboli and after many, many emails and calls over almost one year, I can say without reservations that she is a consummate professional, a problem-solver, creative thinker, and detailed-oriented, attentive, and a stalwart advocate for us. She makes things happen; when we wanted to decorate the railing around the rink, we brainstormed a solution. We worked together to find bands that would meet the sound restrictions and still have a hopping dance floor. She is responsive and a planner; her careful planning helped the day go smoothly. On the day of, she regularly checked in and took care of us and our family like her own. She effectively communicated and there were no surprises the day of. She accommodated our work schedule to meet us and be available by phone after hours. Being a long-time member of the weddings department, she knew the Mohonk inside out and had tips for us on every detail. Having spoken to a few wedding planners before coming to Mohonk, we could easily tell the difference. She takes ownership. And she is also a very cool and fun person and shared our joy on our special day.
We could not be more grateful to Aimee and the entire Mohonk staff for blowing away our expectations for a dream wedding weekend. I recommend Mohonk without reservation for a wedding.

There are no words to express how beautiful and magical our wedding and this venue is. You must experience it for yourself. Our wedding planners were fun, relaxed and had it all under control. We just enjoyed our magical day! Mohonk Mountain House has something for everyone and the service is outstanding. You will not regret going!

My husband and I got married at Mohonk on September 30, 2017 and we do not have enough great things to say about it! We had a small wedding (56 people) and it was great that they were able to hold such a small wedding. Many other venues require a specific number of guests, and if you don't have that number, they charge you for it anyway. NOT MOHONK! Everyone loved our wedding; the views are amazing, the food is excellent. We were planning to have it outside but the weather wasn't that great, so we switched it to inside 2 hours prior to the ceremony and the staff (Aimee Ciarimboli) was SO accommodating and understanding (and trust us, it was JUST as beautiful inside!) Aimee took the stress out of wedding planning. For every email I wrote her, she responded back and had a solution to every question or issue I could think of. She does not cut corners. She has everything covered and really makes you feel like you can relax and she has everything under control, cause she does ! Everyone also commented on how nice and accommodating the servers were at our wedding- we personally think this is a very important factor in choosing a wedding venue... the servers literally catered to all of my vegetarian in-law's needs, and made sure they were served all the vegetarian hors d'oeuvres they wanted. They really made it a special day for us and made us feel so important. The best part of getting married at Mohonk is that it is not like it's just a catering hall where you are treated as just another customer; and you can go back every year to celebrate your anniversary! It was a wonderful wedding, and we owe it all to Aimee and the rest of the staff at Mohonk. THANK YOU!
