Dream Team, Dream Venue, Dream Wedding Day
There are moments that I believe most people can point to and say "I knew this was it". I felt it when my husband and I were getting to know each other, when I visited the home we now live in, when I tried on the dress that I said yes to, and I remember having distinctly felt it when I visited Mountainville Manor back in December 2020, and met Lauren for the first time. Michael and I took a tour, tasted the food, chatted about having a COVID wedding and what that would look like for us. Then on the drive back, I had said, "this is where we're getting married".
It takes a very special person to be able to instill trust - that you can hand over the many details of this day that you will remember for the rest of your life, and they've got you; they genuinely care, empathize, and will do everything in their power to help you. I encountered this in Lauren and thereby, in her team. Planning this wedding was a wonderful experience because Lauren listened to what we wanted and made suggestions as if she could read our minds. She made wedding planning easier and more enjoyable. A small example: I mentioned wanting honey favors with a "meant to bee" sign and Lauren helped procure adorable glass bear jars, found a local organic honey vendor, and presented the fee for taking care of it all. Simply amazing.
For folks like me out there who take the time to read all these reviews, know that this venue is more than just a business. These people love what they do and are extremely good at it. Chef Craig floored our guests with some of the best food they've ever had at not just any wedding, but in their entire lives. Sally made stunning mocktails for my husband and I who do not drink alcohol, and refreshments and actual cocktails that our guests raved about. James is the man who will fix everything and together with Lauren, they handled the finer points I wouldn't have even thought of. An example: they took care of the outdoor-nature-bug situation so our guests and our food remained safe and happy throughout the entire evening. Another example: they brought over the flower pot displays and cards box from the Ceremony area and guestbook station to our Sweetheart Table during the reception. What a nice touch!
Everything at this manor is just right. The size, the atmosphere, the location.. I loved our getting ready rooms, and having our first look photos taken under the shade of the rotund porch. We had a gorgeous outdoor Ceremony by the gazebo, Cocktail Hour with a display station and passed hors d'oeuvres, and Tented Reception with a five course plated dinner. Our color theme was white and blush with a splash of coral. We were beyond pleased with the table settings, linens, sweetheart table arrangement, and more. My goodness, the cake was delicious - for those who share my flavor palate, I recommend vanilla cake with lemon curd filling, elderflower syrup, and buttercream frosting. You will not regret it.
I cannot thank these kind, thoughtful, and talented people enough. They are truly wonderful. I'm so glad our paths crossed and am so proud of the Wedding we put together. Hopefully, I'll be able to visit soon for another special occasion.
Autumnal Fairy-Tale Wedding
The Best Wedding Venue in the Hudson Valley!!!
Planning a wedding is extensive, expensive and can unfortunately become very stressful. My husband and I knew from the beginning that we wanted an all-inclusive venue to ease our anticipated stress. We toured several venues before Mountainville Manor, but nothing truly checked off all of our boxes….until we met Lauren & James. This venue HAS IT ALL. The food, drinks, tables/linens, cake, indoor & outdoor accommodations, exclusive use of the manor, day of coordinator, amazing staff, you name it! During our tour, we were kindly presented with several package options to accommodate all of our needs, dreams and budget! Lauren & James also provided a convenient list of recommended vendors (DJ, Florist, Officiant…who were all superb as well!) which made the planning process that much easier. Everything was at our fingertips and we didn’t even need a planner!
My husband and I, like many other couples, wanted our wedding to be timeless, memorable, and talked about years later. We are definitely people pleasers and we gave a lot of thought to what people truly appreciate and remember at weddings. We came to this conclusion: food, alcohol and music. And let me tell you, Mountainville Manor DID NOT disappoint! During our initial tour, we were sat down for a complimentary tasting, where we were able to meet Chef Craig who is a James Beard award winner! Wedding food doesn’t have the best reputation and Cheg Craig expressed his vision and passion to bring elegance and tasteful cuisine back into the wedding industry. The food was beyond delicious and was a huge selling point! On our wedding day, our guests sat down and enjoyed a beautifully plated and delicious 3 course meal, along with hors d’oeuvres, late night snacks, coffee & tea, and a beautiful cake that was included in our package. In addition to the food, the cocktails were incredible! Their bartender, Sally, is knowledgable and truly an expert mixologist. Our signature cocktails were the talk of the night! Sally makes her own syrups and infusions which made for incredibly fresh and delectable cocktails.
(Side note: We also teamed up with their recommended DJ, Matt with LB entertainment who also knocked it out of the park…so it’s safe to say we had SPECTACULAR food, alcohol and music. Several guests complimented us all night revealing this was the best wedding they had ever been to!)
The Manor Itself
It’s hard not to talk about the physical aspects of the venue as well. The manor is a restored Victorian mansion that is insanely beautiful, romantic, and clean (seriously did not see a speck of dust in this place!) My husband and I adored the wrap around porch and the rolling hills that surrounded the venue. We used their spacious bridal and groomsmen suite the morning of our wedding, and had our ceremony in front of a beautiful and intimate gazebo. Not to mention, they offered both indoor and outdoor accommodations, so my husband and I never really worried about the weather!
The Incredible Team & Staff
From day one, Lauren and James felt like family. They are honestly some of the nicest people we have ever met. Never did I feel like they were “selling” us anything. They are truly passionate about ensuring your day is everything you have ever dreamed of. They were kindhearted, professional, communicative, incredibly responsive, and so much more! Keep in mind, Lauren and James are not your wedding planner, but they never failed to kindly offer their recommendations, kept track of all of our requests, and ensure we had everything we needed. The day of our wedding, their staff was hard working, well mannered and very professional. Throughout the day, Lauren and James checked in with us to make sure everything was perfect. The BEST hospitality!!!
We truly cannot say enough about Mountainville Manor, but their commitment to a seamless and beautiful wedding experience is held in high regard! You will not regret choosing Mountainville Manor!
