    It was like a dream, and Sara and team helped it come true.

    We cannot recommend Wistariahurst Museum highly enough! As soon as we walked in, we knew we had to get married here. The venue was gorgeous, the staff was amazing, and the ambiance was exactly what we dreamed for our wedding celebration. We felt like royalty, and our guests were floored with how beautiful everything was. The day was unbelievably perfect, mostly thanks to a lovely lady named Sara.

    Sara is an absolute angel. She went above and beyond for us every single step of the way. Whether it was helping schedule and plan elements beforehand or being a personal assistant/coordinator throughout the event, no element went unnoticed by Sara. She was dedicated to taking care of every minute detail, worked with the photographers and videographers like a pro, and even entertained our flower girls like her own to the point where they were asking about "Miss Sara" days later. She made sure that everything went off without a hitch, and I know that our wedding was as perfect as it was because of her dedication to making fairytales come true. (I guess you could call her a fairy godmother.) She clearly loves her job and it shows. She truly was a Godsend. Thank you so much, Sara and team, for all your hard work on making our day one that we will truly never forget. We look forward to visiting you all over the years on anniversaries and just for fun!

    Wonderful job

    Wistariahurst was incredible to work with for our last minute wedding. With only 5 weeks notice, they had to pull together staff to make our wedding day happen, which they seamlessly did. Sara and all of the staff were wonderful to work with, very kind and appreciative. There were no headaches whatsoever in working with this team.

    Amy,
    Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed working with all of you for a wonderful celebration.
    Best regards,
    Sara

    Wonderful wedding service

    I was so pleased and satisfied with Sara at Wistiriahurst and her team. Sara was great with communicating with my family and myself. Sara gave us great advice and great explanation of what to expect before and at wedding day. I would recommend this venue to anyone! Very beautiful museum.

    Wistariahurst Museum's reply:

    Jasside,
    Thank you for your kind words. It was a truly beautiful wedding, with two wonderful families. We love the photos!
    All the best,
    Sara

Wistariahurst is a great place to have your wedding photos taken. Many brides reserve time there as a backup plan for photos in case of rain. There are lots of options for different shots and I highly recommend them!!!

Wistariahurst Museum is a beautiful, historic mansion available for private events. We've been lucky enough to play there 2 times in the last year, once for their annual gala fundraiser and the other time for a festive private party with dancing. The staff are wonderful to work with, the museum and grounds are beautiful, and it's an absolute pleasure to play music there!
