All I need to say is that you can have complete confidence in believing all the positive reviews about Summit Manor. I got married on 8/8/15 and the day couldn't have been any better. David McLaughlin makes your day go seamlessly and he does it with a smile on his face. He is truly an amazing wedding coordinator and his services are included in the rental of the space.
Our food was amazing, the service was amazing, and the space is amazing. My guests raved about everything Summit had to offer. My favorite part about booking with Summit is that you can purchase your alcohol separately. We were able to host an open bar for the entire night at under $1,000.00 for 100 guests. David recommended Thomas Liquors as a vendor because they would deliver the alcohol and refund us for anything that hadn't been opened so we actually only spent around $800.00!! This included a case of champagne to serve as guests walked in the door. That price is unbelievable and you will learn that as you search for venues.
With a buffet style dinner, open bar, and great dessert from Buttercream, you can believe our guests felt taken care of.
Thank you Summit and thank you David McLaughlin!!!!!!!!!
On a side note, David's wife (Amber McLaughlin) is a photographer and she takes amazing pictures for an amazing value. Amber and David actually got married at Summit Manor themselves so Amber knows all the best angles and spots to take pictures here. If you do go with Summit, I would definitely go with her for photography. Not only was she an amazing photographer, she was an incredibly sweet person to work with. That made all the difference for us!!

Perfect Christmas wedding
It’s our first anniversary and to celebrate we went to dinner and walked past Summit Manor. Our Christmas wedding in the mansion was so beautiful all decorated and just felt so perfect. Everything was great including the food, dj, bartenders. It all felt more like an elegant party and our guests kept complimenting us all night on how great of a place it was. The owners are great and the rest of the staff really knew what to do when. We had about 100 guests and did the ceremony there as well on the stairs.
