Gorgeous, gorgeous venue!!! Service was excellent as well by both the event and catering staff. The food was excellent, and all of my guests raved about how wonderful our wedding was. The mansion has a lot of space available for your guests to roam around and feel comfortable. The catering staff was extremely professional, and my guests commented on how great they were. I'd recommend to any of my friends or family members.

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.
