We had the perfect wedding!

My husband and I had the most perfect wedding at Tappan Hill this past weekend!

The venue space is immaculate and the food is insanely good (actually shockingly good for wedding food).

From the second we toured the venue with Caitlin Lennox and signed our contract 18 months ago, we knew we were in good hands, but we could have never imagined it would be as perfect as it was.

Tappan Hill made the wedding planning process a breeze- they were able to accommodate every detail we hoped for, and even added things we couldn’t even dream of.

In the weeks leading up to our big day we were paired up with our day-of coordinator, Vanessa Woodbury- who is kind, calm, and the most organized person ever. She runs a tight ship, but put our experience above everything. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and was excellent at communicating with us.

Our special day was flawless, the entire staff was incredible, and we cannot thank Tappan Hill enough for helping us throw one hell of a party!

Amazing Full-Service Venue

Absolutely thrilled with our May wedding in the beautiful Pavilion Room at Tappan Hill. We jumped at the chance to have a spring wedding and the experienced team at Tappan Hill helped us put the wedding together in five months, providing amazing food, wedding cake and everything we needed for the cocktail hour, dinner and reception. In the months leading up, our coordinator Vanessa was organized, responsive and accommodating to requests for special touches and last-minute changes. On the day of, Vanessa and her staff made sure everything ran seamlessly, so we could focus on enjoying the day. So many guest told us was the best food they had ever had at wedding! Would recommend this venue and their professional, caring staff wholeheartedly.

Incredible venue all around!

We had our wedding at Tappan Hill in April and could not be happier with how everything turned out. Everyone we worked with from the sales team to the day of event manager was nothing short of incredible. Our day of event manager was John, who was an absolute delight! We handled my hundreds of questions with grace, was so calm and poised and made sure that all our asks were taken care of. The venue itself is GORGEOUS, we had a fairly rainy wedding day and even with that, our photos looked like we were in a fairy tale and people could not stop raving about the beauty of the mansion. On top of that, the food was absolutely incredible - we got rave reviews from our guests on how amazing the food was at both cocktail hour and dinner. Could not have asked for a better wedding venue!
