Coindre Hall was the best choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. John Schlenke and crew could not have been more nice, friendly, accommodating, and flexible. It was a PLEASURE doing business with Lessings. I recommend all brides check out Coindre Hall!Sent on 10/22/2011

The Chateau at Coindre Hall was the most amazing, perfect and special wedding venue. The beautiful chateau is like a sophisticated, elegant, fairytale dream space. It's opulent, with a lovely and interesting layout, making use of the space in creative and special ways, and yet it remains a sense of intimacy. The food is just incredible and they have several bar points throughout the venue space to accommodate guests. Our guests were so well taken care of, and some even got a tour of the venue! I was an international bride, originally from NY and now living in London. Finding the right, special venue for our guests travelling internationally, and for local family and friends we don't often get to see was extremely important. Coindre Hall really delivers. And we have to say a huge thank you to John for everything he did to make our wedding day so, so special. It could not have gone any better and this is largely down to John and his team. The attention he gave to us as the bride and groom, our guests and the event itself was exceptional. There were so many little things that John did that really made a difference to us and the way he looked after us was amazing. Planning a wedding from overseas is challenging, but John never made it so. He is so responsive, professional and helpful, full of great suggestions and support. We can't recommend Coindre Hall enough. Meghan & SteveSent on 10/10/2018

We had our wedding on 4/21/18 and were absolutely thrilled with how everything turned out. To start off, one of the best feelings in the world is being able to put your trust in the hands of others knowing that they won’t let you down (good marriage advice too!). Our Maitre’D John Schlenke was absolutely that person, I vividly remember my wife & I coming out of our menu choosing day w John blown away with his professionalism. John calls the weddings, “his wedding”, and he takes it as seriously as that. He gave us amazing ideas to make the night special, and guided us along the way. He was responsive and timely to every annoying question we asked. When it was showtime, John was always there to lead us in the right direction, make sure we were well fed, and was up to the task of dealing w 160+ ppl who had martinis during cocktail hour.Sent on 05/07/2018
As for the venue, I’m sure you’ve seen pictures, but it’s visually stunning and gives the guests a whole different feel to a typical wedding. Multiple rooms to explore and enjoy throughout the ceremony, but still with an intimate feel. And the dance floor being off the dining room worked out perfect, we had most everyone out there when it came time to party. Also your views of the beautiful trees and Long Island sound are amazing from the dining area. Plus...what’s better than getting married in a castle!
The cocktail hour is something special, we added on raw & martini bar (like 15 different types of martinis) and it was a hit. You also get an endless amount of different appetizer choices to overwhelm your guests with as they explore the multitude of beautiful rooms and courtyards around them. People raved about it and John was nice enough to usher us to an outside table on the patio w two dishes he prepared for us (life saving stuff after a martini or two as guests mob you). Dinner is made to order and presented perfectly. The service for dinner is fancy, coordinated dinner reveals for the full table is a nice touch!
classic, elegant, a wedding venue your guests will never forget
