Professional and Friendly Staff, Great Food
We can't say enough good things about Tappan Hill. They truly know how to put on a great wedding and take care of a lot of the logistics and small details that less sophisticated venues leave for the couple to handle. Paul, the event manager, worked with us to create a menu and a timeline and he basically handled the rest letting us enjoy the wedding stress free. From the very first time we visited the venue we knew that we would be in good hands there. They anticipate your needs before you even realize it. All they care about is making sure you are taken care of and are having a good time.Sent on 10/28/2019
Not only is the venue run like a well-oiled machine, but they look good doing it. TH Mansion is a breath-taking space. The ceremony takes place on a beautiful outdoor patio that has that "wow factor" we were looking for, and the cocktail hour and reception rooms are stunning as well. That ceiling with the twinkle lights is so romantic. Even with all that, what really stands out most about Tappan Hill is the food. Everything was absolutely fantastic and all anyone could talk about after the wedding. That's because TH gives all other wedding venues a run for their money by offering elegant, delicious, and creative food. When a standard venue serves bacon-wrapped scallops, TH serves smoked scallop sates with sesame ginger glaze. If we weren't so busy on the dance floor having the time of our lives, we just would have sat at our table all night stuffing our faces. We'd highly recommend!

DREAM venue and experience!
I don't even know where to begin in describing the experience my husband and I had at Tappan Hill. Not only is this venue absolutely stunning, but the professionalism of the staff from start to finish was on another level. We knew we were in the best hands from day one when working with Melissa in sales. She is absolutely fantastic, so responsive, accommodating, and kind. We loved working with her as we started the wedding planning process and she made everything so easy for us. We then worked with Paul as our events manager and cannot sing his praises loudly enough! Paul was WONDERFUL! He responded immediately to our nonstop emails and questions, accommodated our every ask and then some, and did it all with a huge smile and wonderful attitude. The last month before our wedding was pretty stressful! And Paul made it FUN! He was so trust-worthy and helped us (me) calm down a bit. And this doesn't even cover the wedding day. Paul truly came through with flying colors. Every tiny detail and step in the day was handled flawlessly. We didn't even have to bat an eye or ask a thing - Paul was 10 steps ahead of us and took care of EVERYTHING! You name it, Paul already had it covered. From being there to pull our chairs out any time we sat down to cleaning up the bridal suite, organizing all of our personal items, bringing us dinner and drinks, to adjusting the temperature of the room, it was the most seamlessly executed evening - and so many people noticed and commented. Thank you Paul! Next: the food. Abigail Kirsch catering did not disappoint. We had a huge amount of guests tell us it was the best wedding food they've ever had. We did station-style vegetarian food, and no one even missed meat - this food was THAT good! They also breezed through accommodating our other dietary restrictions and were beyond helpful. Finally, we invited close to 280 guests to our wedding and ended up with around 215 and never once did we worry about the space feeling too tight. The layout was configured perfectly and Paul knew exactly how to place the larger tables vs smaller tables to keep the flow of the room at its best. Choosing this venue was the best wedding planning decision we could have made and I wish we could do it all over again.Sent on 11/26/2019

Abigail Kirsch at Tappan Hill Mansion deserves a 12 out of 10. We had our wedding there on October 27, 2019 and the entire experience was outstanding. From the start when we toured the venue with Caitlin Lennox, we were entranced by the beauty of the venue and staff’s hospitality. We were blown away with the tour experience. After we booked, it only got better from there. The staff was responsive to all our questions regardless of how often we emailed. Our tasting was an incredible date night for my husband and I. It was so much fun and built our confidence in the food, staff, and overall experience at Tappan Hill. Approximately five weeks prior to our event, Paul Richards was assigned to our event as our wedding coordinator and there are not enough words to express how much we enjoyed working with him. He was kind, reassuring, dedicated, and meticulous in his planning. Plus, his energy is contagious! Paul made it easy to put our wedding in his hands. We were able to enjoy the day and truly have a wonderful stress free experience. We absolutely loved Tappan Hill! There is no comparison. If you have your wedding anywhere else you are a fool.Sent on 11/04/2019
