The Glen Sanders has it all. The entire staff are experts at giving you the perfect day. We were lucky enough to be the first wedding held with the new renovations and it was the most perfect day. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about the fabulous food and the new staircase made an incredible entrance for myself as a bride. Maria, Lesley, and Linda made sure everything was perfect and we had everything we could ever need. I would never think of having our wedding elsewhere.Sent on 04/30/2019

Beautiful Venue and Magical Experience
The Glen Sanders Mansion is the most beautiful wedding venue! With recent renovations, the lobby and staircase became the focal point of my pictures and ceremony. The entire place was breathtaking! The team of people I worked with to my my wedding so special were also amazing! Maria and Andrea helped plan my day and provided advice and answered any questions that I had. Leslie was the manager and ran out rehearsal and was there for us throughout the day of our wedding. She was so nice and helped make everything run so smoothly. Every single staff member from the first day we visited the mansion throughout the morning after our wedding was extremely accommodating, so nice and kind, helpful, and got us and our family anything we needed. I was so happy and not stressed throughout the entire process because I knew I was in such good hands.
We were able to get ready in their beautiful hospitality suite and Mohawk room, had our ceremony in the lobby, the reception in the ballroom and after party in The Lounge downstairs! Where else are you able to have all of that in one place?!
I also loved the fact that not only my husband and I were able to stay at the mansion, but there were 17 rooms that my bridal party and close family were able to stay in. The innkeeper, Cara, was so nice and helpful. She was beyond accommodating and even ran out to get gluten free muffins and bread for our aunt!
The Glen Sanders Mansion was amazing and if you are looking for a beautiful, newly renovated venue with an amazing view, amazing and accommodating staff and a stress-free experience, you need to book your wedding there! I definitely recommend!

Amazing Staff and Perfect Day
The best word to describe our experience with The Glen Sanders Mansion and every single person we encountered during the process is perfection. We had the pleasure of working with Samantha, Maria, and Andrea during our planning process, with Andrea focused on the final months and details. At our final meeting, we were impressed with our day-of coordinator (event manager), Lesley’s amount of detail, dedication to understanding how we wanted our wedding to flow, and ensuring every detail was addressed. Each item we requested set up by GSM was in its exact spot, even better than we imagined. When it came time to the reception, Lesley did an amazing job of coordinating with all of our vendors, communicating with us, and allowing us to have a stress-free, ahead of schedule, absolute blast at our wedding. Day of, we were lucky to work with Kiersten as our Bridal Attendant. From the moment we walked in, she greeted us, helped set up the hospitality suite upstairs, and made sure everyone in our party was well fed and hydrated. Throughout the course of the night, Kiersten was always present, yet invisible. She would magically appear with a drink when you were thirsty, some food when you were hungry, and ask what else she could do to make the night even better. In terms of service for our guests, Raz was the service captain for the waiters. After talking to our guests, every filet was perfectly seasoned and cooked, every meal was served on time and hot, and there was not a single hiccup all night. Cocktail hour food and drinks were beautifully displayed, delicious and between the beautiful patio overlooking the river and the option of having overflow to the lobby in front of the new gorgeous fireplace, there was plenty of tables and seating for our 200+ guests to sit and eat their food. The guests and us were impressed with how delicious the cake was and decorated perfectly as to our requests. We highly recommend GSM if you want a beautiful, stress-free wedding where you want your guests to rave about the food, drink, and service. After the recent renovations, the ballroom looks amazing, the bars were painted white for a fresh modern look, and the new foyer, staircase, and fireplace are stunning for photographs.Sent on 11/24/2019
