Sharon and her team made our day a dream come true. We wanted to get married at Stan Hywet every since we first visited the property and between their top notch service and the beautiful weather everything was better than we could have imagined. We appreciated the coordination that went into moving the bridal party around the property and how well they assisted our other wedding vendors (DJ, photographer, videographer, and officiant) to make the day run incredibly smoothly.Sent on 10/01/2017

Words can't even express how wonderful my experience with Stan Hywet was! Everyone on staff was so friendly and accommodating, and they really make you feel like it's your special day. On the day of the wedding, there were a few things that didn't go the way we had planned, but the Stan Hywet team was on top of every issue before I could even ask for their help. The grounds are beautiful and provided the perfect scenery for my dream wedding, but it wouldn't have been made possible without the Stan Hywet Rentals team.Sent on 12/22/2015

When planning our daughter's wedding, we worked with John Tedesco at Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens.Sent on 10/01/2014
He was the most committed, assuring, friendly, completely professional (even under stress),
man we have ever worked with. (this was our first wedding).
He answered all our questions, and concerns with the utmost care.
Our wedding was a fairytale come true for our daughter.
It will be a cherished memory forever.
