    I found the Harding Allen Estate on Wedding Wire, as soon as I walked in the door I never wanted to leave, this place is a BEAUTIFUL historic mansion that is so well kept and taken care of. The ceremony location outside with the large white pillars, Walled gardens, and Lily pond/fountain surrounded by flowers, I couldn't dream up anything more perfect for our special day. As far as the mansion itself goes, you get the WHOLE PLACE, which was a huge quality to me, we visited many other venues that had multiple weddings going on, not at the Harding Allen, the whole mansion is yours for the evening. They even have rooms upstairs and two additional cottages available to rent for the night to stay over, which we did, and had a blast. Since we were spending the night they let us have an after party with our overnight guests in the mansion, which was one of the best parts of our day! So much fun to just relax and enjoy the time with a must smaller group, you order drinks and snacks and its all set up and ready after the wedding, it was a blast!! The food was amazing, and plentiful, SO much food, we got many compliments on. We also used the estates florist, Katie who was also amazing (see her review on the Potting Shed Florist). But as amazing as the venue itself was, I have to mention the very best part of our venue... Carmine, Grace and their daughter Gianna, this is a family run business, and you can tell, they truly cared and did everything they could to make our day exactly as we wanted. They are truly the sweetest, most caring people, and it meant so much to us to have them by our side throughout the whole wedding planning process. Gianna was great as answering my emails and explaining every detail to a T, Grace helped us with all of the details of the day, and Carmine was right there with us the day of to make sure everything was going to plan. I could go on forever, but I couldn't be happier or more thankful to have found Harding Allen Estate as our wedding venue.
