Wedding at The Rockleigh was an unbelievable experience!
The Rockleigh is absolutely amazing, from the grounds to the venue to the impeccable service. My spouse and I were meant to get married on March 21, 2020, which turned out to be the first official day of lockdown during COVID, in a 320 person wedding. We canceled and entered a really difficult period of uncertainty, fear, confusion, pressure and many reschedules. Jeffrey, our main contact at The Rockleigh, was a dream. Despite our stresses, he always remained calm, thoughtful, and creative in his problem solving offerings. We must've rescheduled 4 times over the course of the course of the year, changing the conditions of the wedding each time, but Jeffrey was so patient with us every step of the way.
We ended up having a very different kind of wedding on April 15, 2021 with 40ish people (once they were vaxxed), socially distanced where possible, and it was incredible! It was truly the first moment of joy and celebration many of us had had after an unprecedentedly difficult, long year. Despite the new kind of event, Jeffrey and his team made the place look amazing and the setting feel warm, kept the space safe and sanitized, and upheld the incredible level of service the Rockleigh's known for. There wasn't a moment in the day that we weren't grateful for everything we were able to safely pull off.
Speaking of service - my bridal attendee Daniella was the sweetest, most thoughtful, most awesome person I could've had help me through the day. She didn't let me feel an ounce of stress once, and was on every challenge or hiccup like a superhero. Need a bandaid? Got it. Need to fix my mom's ripped dress? Got it. Amazing. This woman needs a hero cape. Must also give a shout out to the food and drink service as well – we couldn't put a drink down without it getting refilled (which resulted in quite a hilariously drunk, I-love-everybody groom by the end of the night) and the food was over the top elegant.
Thank you everyone at the Rockleigh for not only putting on an amazing day, but for helping my spouse and I through an incredibly difficult, stressful time with calm, patient professionalism. We were lucky to have chosen you as our original venue, and even luckier to have you as our crew for the reschedule.Sent on 04/30/2021
The Rockleigh's reply:We were so happy that we were finally able to give you the celebration you so well deserved. It was a very difficult time with many ups and downs, but in the end yours was an absolutely beautiful intimate affair that was filled with joy and love. We wish you many more happy days in your future together!

Bari and her team made my dream wedding a reality. So many of my guests said it was one of the most beautiful weddings they have ever been to. From the delicious food to the beautiful chandeliers to the picturesque photo locations, I couldn't have asked for a better experience. They kept in touch with us throughout the process and it made the actual day very easy for all involved!Sent on 08/25/2016

We had two last minute venue changes in light of covid-19. We found the Rockleigh relatively last minute and we were fortunate they were available on the weekend we planned. From the moment we arrived, just to see the venue, we felt that we were well taken care of. Jeff was absolutely amazing, very approachable and available, and saw to it that we would have all we needed for our day. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The venue is stunning, we had our ceremony, lunch, and reception there. They have so many "looks" to their venue that it seemed like each event was held in a totally different venue. Their outdoor areas and in door ballroom were beautiful. The food was delicious. The staff was incredibly friendly and from the moment we arrived for our day, we truly felt we did not have to worry about a thing. I cannot believe they were able to put all this together so last minute, but they did an amazing job. Choosing this venue was the best decision we made. I would not hesitate to choose it again. Jeff and his colleagues are the absolute best, without question. You cannot go wrong here.Sent on 02/14/2021
