The Ryland Inn was my dream venue, and I knew I wanted to have my wedding here from the moment I stepped in. Danielle was amazing to work with and the day-of staff were attentive, kind, and helpful. My whole family is still raving about the venue and how beautiful it is and how delicious the food is. My fiance and I are vegetarians, and the Ryland accommodated us and we were able to have a full vegetarian menu that was creative, unique, and delicious. It was the best day of my life and I have no regrets about choosing the Ryland as my venue. (Wedding date 12/19/15)Sent on 03/23/2016

Amazing place, amazing night!!
My fiancé and I both grew up in NJ and it was important to us to find a spot that represented where we were from The Ryland Inn was exactly what we were looking for. The old world equestrian theme of the building is offset inside by the grandeur of the incredible ballroom where we had a fire blazing for my Christmas wedding and garlands strung from the elegant chandeliers. The space was the perfect size, with the cocktail hour space giving guests a reprieve from the dance floor to grab another drink or take advantage of our vintage photo booth. Beyond that, the room that guests are first welcomed into after the ceremony is cozy and inviting, yet spacious and elegant. With a leather couch for seating and decor that reminds you of a gorgeous ski lodge or antique filled inn, the entire aesthetic from room to room perfectly encapsulated the theme of my holiday wedding. The s’mores out by the fire pits next to a GIANT lit Christmas tree were incredible, the lighting of the ballroom and the extra space for additional stations were just more positives on top of an already perfect evening. Danielle is attentive and kind, clearly looking out for you and ensuring that you have the best night of your life. You couldn’t be in better hands.Sent on 02/13/2019

Beautiful Reception - Amazing Service
When me and my husband visited the Ryland Inn, we knew it was perfect. We still went and visited other venues, but nothing really compared. We got married in the Grand Ballroom. The ceremony was inside, since it was raining outside, and it was just beautiful with the fireplace. After we took pictures, they brought me into the room again once they had set up the reception to make sure I liked how everything was set up - which I did. The room was beautiful! The food was delicious too. Also, the bridal attendant was with me the whole night. She would even put cold cloths on my neck after spent time dancing to help cool me down. She really made sure me and my husband were comfortable and happy the whole day and evening. The maitre d' and event coordinator, Lara, were also great the whole day and kept everything running smoothly. Lara was also great when we were planning the wedding and always kept in good contact with us. Basically, the venue and the staff really helped make the whole day perfect!Sent on 05/02/2019
