A wonderful experience

We had our wedding on 9/10/22 and everyone at Pine Manor was so helpful in making sure it went smoothly despite the weather! The venue was beautiful and we got many compliments on the estate, ceremony and reception. We worked with Kara who was very helpful throughout the planning process. We were able to rent out more homes on the estate property for our family and friends to stay at and had such a fun, memorable weekend!

My Dream Wedding

Pine Manor Estate was truly my dream wedding. The value I paid for the venue was equal to the service/care/flexibility we received for our 250 person wedding. It gave us the perfect backdrop for our wedding and also provided high end service for our guests to create the perfect event for me and my now wife. We have so many positive memories at Pine Manor Estate and hope you select it as your venue as well!

Julie was our main contact person at pine manor estate and she was wonderful to work with- quick to respond and helpful in recommending other vendors. Definitely helped me feel at ease when the weather was not great leading up to our wedding day, seeing as they only have outdoor venue options. The weather ended up being beautiful on our big day and she made it work. The grounds are gorgeous!
