I just hosted my wedding at the New York Wine and Culinary center and all I can say is WOW! I am totally floored by the team they have put together to host events. Austyn, the event/ venue coordinator is absolutely amazing!! From our first meeting I knew she was the one I wanted to trust with this special day. She handled everything with a grace and calmness about her that made me stress free about the entire process. I had both my ceremony and reception at the NYWCC in the sands gallery. Austyn and her team had the entire room flipped in 45 minutes while guests were enjoying cocktails and flatbread pizzas. They did so much more than just provide the “venue”. They even created a custom menu when I asked to have a taco bar with margaritas!! All of my guests were raving about how unique our venue was and how on point the staff were. The event went off without a hitch and I owe it to Austyn and the amazing team at the NYWCC! I HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking to host a wedding or other event!!

I cannot say enough good things about Karen! We had a tough time planning our wedding with my mother living in Florida and Karen made it so easy to schedule our meetings and did an excellent emailing both of us back and forth. The reception area was beautiful! We gave her all of our centerpieces, seating arrangements, other little things here and there and she made the entire area BEAUTIFUL! She knew just what to do with every little detail and it was amazing! Jacqueline was also extremely helpful as the night went on. The food was delicious and everyone is still commenting on it! We were very impressed with the professionalism and the quick responses from everyone there. Great experience! Thank you so much to all of the staff!Sent on 06/20/2016

We are big fans of the New York Wine and Culinary Center. We held all of our wedding events there: rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception. I (the bride) am originally from the area and we wanted a venue that was beautiful and also showcased the best the region has to offer. The NYWCC fulfilled our vision and more. The staff is very professional and the nicest people you will ever meet. Christine, our event coordinator, was patient and flexible with us. She helped us do everything we wanted from customizing the menu to ensuring the details of the day were executed perfectly. Our wedding and reception was held in the beautiful Sands Gallery which was perfect for a wedding of our size (approximately 65). THE FOOD IS FANTASTIC. Everyone loved the food and the beer and wine selections at the bar. We were able to fully enjoy the day and our guests because Christine and the staff at NYWCC took such good care of us.Sent on 01/01/2015

My love for food began at a young age, growing up around my family’s Italian restaurant in upstate NY. After years of restaurant management experience, I realized my passion to plan other people’s lives (…or events) and started working at my friends' brewery in Washington, DC, as their Events Director. I recently moved back to upstate NY and am excited to be working at New York Kitchen! I planned my own wedding 4 years ago, and I am excited to plan your next special event. I look forward to working with you!
