About

Tappan Hill Mansion is a historic hilltop wedding venue located in Tarrytown, New York. Situated on Mark Twain's former estate in the Hudson Valley, this luxurious setting sits right on the banks of the Hudson River. Located just 45 minutes from Manhattan, this graceful mansion is easily accessible from the city while remaining a tranquil oasis for milestone occasions

This venue is an ideal setting for intimate gatherings and extravagant weddings alike. The venue features a large, manicured lawn that can be used for daytime ceremonies and celebrations under the stars. For indoor festivities, the mansion houses classic ballrooms complete with exposed stone, draped ceilings, and large windows. The Pavilion Room features a glass-encased brick patio opening to a stunning outdoor terrace, so you can mingle with your loved ones in the fresh country air. With access to indoor and outdoor beauty, this room is a convenient location for ceremonies on the lawn followed by a reception inside. The Hudson Room offers a classic ballroom setting, with hardwood floors and access to a private garden terrace with a stunning fountain. The walls are lined with windows that overlook the landscaped grounds, adding even more beauty to the space.

    Exceptional

    Tappan Hill Mansion is a phenomenal wedding venue. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing.

    The whole team there is so so professional from the very first interaction with them, to scheduling, venue tour, contract, planning, tasting and the day of. They helped make us feel like we were in the best hands throughout the entire process.

    The venue itself is stunningly beautiful, especially on a sunny day with the Hudson views from the pavilion terrace.

    Jason, our venue coordinator, is the best - he is flexible, responsive, thorough, friendly, calm and organized. He made sure the day ran to schedule while taking our feedback into account at every stage which we really appreciated. His communication is clear and nothing gets missed when working with Jason.

    My bridal assistant, Marleny, was also amazing. She helped make the whole process on the day so easy and seamless from getting ready, photographs, to packing up at the end of the night. She anticipated my needs before I did multiple times during the course of the day.

    And the food is incredible - our guests are still raving about how it was the best food they ever had at a wedding.

    Tappan Hill is a fabulous venue and you will have a fabulous, unforgettable day if you decide to get married at Tappan Hill.

    Wedding of my dreams

    When we started looking at wedding venues, my husband and I really had no idea where to start. We were located in a different country, and weren’t sure we would even be able to visit the venue before the wedding took place. Luckily we found Tappan Hill, and they had a date that perfectly matched our needs. Caitlin in the sales team was absolutely fantastic talking us through everything in the beginning, and explaining all the details. Since we live in a different country, we sent my parents on tours and included them on all calls, and Caitlin was wonderful about making sure they were always in the loop. She was also great at helping us navigate planning during a pandemic and making sure we felt comfortable every step of the way. When we met Jason who would be our coordinator, his calm demeanor assured us he would have everything under control. He answered all our questions, but where Tappan Hill really blew us away was the actual wedding. The entire day ran so smoothly, it was like a dream. Everyone always says something will go wrong on your wedding day, but Tappan Hill has everything down to a science. They have two separate ballrooms, but don’t worry, you won’t even realize there is another event going on! Everyone was so friendly, and I also can’t speak highly enough of Marleny the bridal attendant! She was incredibly attentive, and even got a box of leftovers from cocktail hour made up for my husband to take home! The food was absolutely incredible, and really exceeded our expectations (which were already high to begin with just from looking at the pictures!). I should also note we pulled heavily from their seasoned vendors list, and were equally impressed with everyone we hired off of it. We absolutely loved our wedding at Tappan Hill, and are already recommending it to all of our engaged friends.

    Fairytale Fall Wedding!!

    Our wedding at Tappan Hill was everything we could've dreamed of and more! Jason (our event manager) was extremely easy to work with (and very calming even when we were highly stressed)! Jason ensured that everything ran smoothly, and was very helpful in the planning process! The entire THM staff was very accommodating to us, especially when we needed to postpone our wedding due to Covid-19. They take care of SO MANY details that friends planning weddings had to manage themselves (e.g., rentals, vendor day-of needs, decor setup, etc.), and though it was hard for me to 'let things go' as a Type A bride, Jason assured me throughout the months and weeks leading up that everything was under control, and it was!! Our guests are still talking about the incredible food, and how beautiful our venue was for our fairytale fall wedding. We highly recommend booking your wedding at Tappan Hill!
