    Amazing Venue

    The Harding Allen Estate really made the entire wedding planning process easy. Throughout the entire process the Harding Allen crew gave us easy to understand worksheets and deadlines for everything from food to flowers to how we wanted the ceremony to look. The wedding day can be very overwhelming and, with many moving pieces, stressful. The Harding Allen staff will coordinate with the schedule you have laid out for them and make sure you are where you are supposed to be. It really removed a ton of stress from the wedding day and let us enjoy the moment and interact with the guests. They made sure we had food and were able to eat (a common warning from friends was that they didn't even get a chance to sit and eat at their wedding). They have this wedding thing down. They also recommend trusted vendors for things like photography and the DJ. Both of the services they recommended for these were amazing as well.

    On top of how easy they made coordinating and smoothly the big day went, they were also a pleasure to be around.

    All around great venue!

    Absolutely Amazing!! Made my wedding day perfect!

    My husband and I were married at the estate in October of 2018 and I can’t say enough about the staff of the Estate! They were so accommodating and made our day a day to remember for us from our initial tour to the actual day of they made us feel like family. Carmine really took the time to help out with my grandpa who without the extra attention from the staff at the estate would not have been able to attend our ceremony and that really meant the world to me! Thank you Harding Allen Estate! And from the bottom of my heart thank you Carmine!
