The Glen Sanders Mansion is a wedding mansion located in Scotia, New York, exuding elegance and historic charm. Boasting authentic decorative details from the 1700s, the extravagant house entices couples to celebrate their wedding in genuine stylish comfort. While resting on the banks of the serene Mohawk River, the mansion is the ideal location for a wedding getaway, providing equal measures of luxury and peacefulness. Newlyweds are sure to cherish their time spent here, walking on the outdoor patio or curled up by the fireplace in the guests' lounge.

Facilities and Capacity

The wedding day begins on the luscious verdure of the river, where engaged couples will make their vows and become newlyweds. Ideal for both intimate and lavish affairs, the mansion can host events up to 325 guests for the ceremony and reception. Once the ceremony concludes, the party can move towards the enclosed patio area for a delightful cocktail hour. Guests can indulge in a delicious array of appetizers and welcoming beverages while enjoying the breathtaking views of the surrounding location. Wedding receptions are held in a beautifully decorated ballroom that features an abundance of natural light through the large windows. Sparkling chandeliers shine overhead, creating a warm and luxurious ambience. The mansion boasts ample photo opportunities, from the garden gazebo with hanging plants to the outdoor fire pit and scenic garden. A selection of smaller, more intimate spaces is available on-site for indoor ceremonies and cozy receptions, with capacity ranging from 16 to 80 seated guests.

    *best wedding venue in 518!*

    The staff at Glen Sanders Mansion went above and beyond to make our wedding planning process and wedding day incredible. My guests continue to rave about the service that they all provided. I cannot thank them all enough for everything! The venue itself is fully updated and GORGEOUS! My husband and I would recommend every one of our friends/family members to use Glen Sanders for any future weddings/events!

    Amazing service, delicious food!

    I would describe Glen Sanders as running like a well oiled machine! They knocked it out of the park, and we had an amazing day. From our first tour, to planning, to the day of our November 2021 wedding, the staff kept us on time and everything flowing smoothly. I can't recommend the entire team at Glen Sanders enough. I loved our food and cake, and also appreciated that they set aside appetizers and drinks for us during cocktail hour as well. They were super accommodating with dropping off decor and wedding items ahead of time, so everything just felt so easy and we were just able to enjoy the day. I have heard nothing but good things from all our guests as well, everyone loved the food, drinks, and just had a great time at our wedding. Thank you Gabriela, Jessica, Katie, Maki, and all of the other staff members at GS!
