    Fairytale Fall Wedding

    The Stan Hywet was the fairytale fall venue of my dreams. The wedding coordinator, Sara, was responsive, flexible, and very nice! We had our ceremony on the West Terrace, and the trees were just gorgeous in the fall. And we had our reception in the carriage house. We got so many positive comments on the venue throughout the event. It was truly a fairytale!

    A truly exceptional experience

    I couldn't have imagined a more organized and helpful staff for our ceremony — they whisked us around the grounds and kept tabs on absolutely everything. There were so many little details and moving pieces, yet they remained cool under pressure, even managing to make us laugh and keep everything light. It wasn't easy work, but they pulled it off beautifully.

    Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Jeanette! It was our pleasure hosting your wedding at Stan Hwyet!

    An amazing day!

    Our daughter was recently married at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens and the day was even more amazing than we had hoped. We initially had booked the venue in July, 2019 and had to postpone due to COVID. Sara worked with us the entire time. When the actual day came, the weather cooperated and the day-of staff assisted with photos, appetizers for the bridal party and anything else that came up. The ceremony was in Birch Tree Allee with cocktails outside. Our guests are still telling us how much they loved the wedding and venue.

    Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Sue! It was a pleasure hosting your wedding at Stan Hwyet, it was a beautiful day!
