About Strathmore

Two stunning settings to choose from for your dream day.

Strathmore is an ideal location for weddings, showers, rehearsal dinners and other private events.   

The Mansion at Strathmore is an intimate turn-of-the-century Georgian mansion set high atop a hill with a sweeping iron-work staircase that just begs for a grand entrance, gorgeous wood-paneled Music Room, stained glass accented French doors, beautiful outdoor walking paths, and an outdoor gazebo and sculpture garden.  Perfect for intimate weddings, when you rent the Mansion, your event is the only one in the building.  Outdoor terraces and gardens can be tented to increase capacity.

The Music Center at Strathmore is a magnificent light-filled modern building nestled into a pastoral hillside, and takes its cues from the park-like setting with a softly undulating roof that appears to merge into the hills of the Strathmore property. With its soaring glass walls and windows throughout, beautiful natural light fills interior spaces of the Music Center, and the accents of natural wood make the spaces warm and inviting. A six-story glass wall in the Lockheed Martin Lobby overlooks an 11-acre site of green hills. The Music Center is available for private event rentals with or without the 1,987 seat state-of-the-art Concert Hall. Two outdoor terraces are available for tenting to increase capacity.

We had an absolutely fabulous experience at the Strathmore Mansion on 9/29/12. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how impressive and beautiful the venue was, how lovely the staff was, and especially how amazing the food was. (We didn't have a tasting beforehand, and we totally didn't need to, because the food was superb. We had a complicated menu including Italian, American, Indian, and Thai dishes, and the chef pulled it off flawlessly.) Everyone we worked with, especially Augie Bove, was incredibly professional and determined to make this an awesome event. This is certainly not an inexpensive venue, but every dollar was worth it for the quality that we received!

I also have to put in a specific plug for Augie-- he was the nicest, most wonderful person we could have worked with through the wedding process. He was constantly looking out for us to make sure that we got the best value for our money, and he was 100% forthcoming about our costs. Instead of seeing our unique menu and our open seating cocktail style reception as a difficulty, he embraced the challenge and made sure to give us an individualized experience. He was totally committed to doing exactly what we wanted, and went out of his way to help us achieve our goals. He was perfectly pleasant throughout our many changes, adjustments, and questions, and clearly knew exactly what he was doing. He stayed at our reception for quite a while to make sure that things ran smoothly. We will recommend him to everyone we know!

We found Strathmore to be an excellent venue for my ceremony and reception. The catering mgr Augie made it very simple for me to accomplish a lot at one time. The food and service were impeccable. Augie was there for every step of the process from the planning process until all the guests went home happy. Also, Kristen the rentals mgr clearly explained all the venue had to offer as well as quickly answering any questions that we had.

I have been video recording weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and other special events at Strathmore Mansion for a number of years. I enjoy working there because it is a beautiful and convenient venue – has ample on-site parking and easy access for me as a vendor. Sometimes I have been hired to record musical recitals in the music room too. I always love a venue a little more when it is near to my house – just 10 minutes drive for me. The mansion has a number of rooms interconnected by double-wide doors so guests can get the feel they are not physically isolated. I would recommend the Mansion for guests seeking an intimate and cozy venue. There are plenty of nice backdrops outside to take photos. In good weather, you can also have a ceremony or cocktail hour outside. I look forward to working there again this year and making great keepsake videos for my clients.

Great venue and friendly staff. Thank you. Toni Taylor, Wedding Planner, c/o EverMoreEvents II

This is an absolutely stunning venue. Every event we have done at Strathmore has been beautiful and wonderfully catered. One huge advantage of this venue is that it has equally beautiful, large indoor and outdoor spaces. This allows for a day that is still perfect no matter what the weather.

Strathmore is a beautiful venue and a great place to shoot. But more importantly, Augie treats every bride and every client like a member of his family. If you want to get married at a beautiful venue with someone who genuinely cares about you and the success of your wedding, Strathmore IS your place.
