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!

My husband and I had the best experience with Tappan Hill Mansion from beginning to end. The staff was amazing and Eddie (our event manager) for our wedding reception was incredible. Eddie is very professional and knowledgeable when it comes to thinking about everything that needs to be included in a perfect wedding reception.Sent on 03/07/2020
The venue is gorgeous and the amount and quality of food you get for the package is better than any other venue that my husband and I looked at before picking Tappan Hill. Even though the venue is a large estate, our reception still had an intimate feel which was what my wife and I envisioned. There is so. much. food. but it's top notch quality and has been talked constantly about by our guests for the past week.
We love Tappan Hill and the entire staff and will suggest the venue over and over to anyone getting married or looking to throw an event.

The best wedding venue around!
Our wedding was the most sacred and special day thanks to this venue. Paul, our coordinator, took care of every single detail, and was always available! The space is beautiful- right on the Hudson, with glorious outdoor photo opportunities. The party was epic- guests are still talking about the food and accommodating service. I cannot thank Paul and everyone at Tappan Hill enough for their hard work and responsiveness and for executing flawlessly, leaving us completely calm and able to focus on just enjoying the day.Sent on 02/11/2020
