    My husband and I had such a beautiful wedding ceremony at the Historic Cedarhurst Mansion. The staff was there for us every step of the way. I basically just showed up and got ready for the ceremony. I knew that I didn't have to worry about the food, decorations, or parking. My guests raved about the beautiful estate. My photographers and videographers had a field day because there were just so many options for photos and videos - from the charming, rustic barn to the beautiful ballroom filled with chandeliers. Everything was just perfect, perfect! I would definitely return for a tea party or birthday party with friends.

    Cedarhurst did a fantastic job with our wedding! The staff was very organized and very professional. Dinner was outstanding; really unforgettable. We chose the salmon and the penne. Six months later, some of our guests are still talking about it! The house and the grounds are stunning; we were able to have each part of the day in a different room or on different parts of the grounds. That really made the event flow and it kept guests excited about what was coming next.

    We were so pleased with our experience at Cedarhurst Mansion. It is a family owned business and they put their heart and soul into it. We were initially interested in having our wedding here because it has an historic charm and has the capacity for both outdoor and indoor weddings. As it turned out, it rained on our wedding day but it didn't even matter to us because the ceremony was moved into the beautiful ballroom which provided enough seating for all 150 of our guests. They have a very efficient system for transforming the ballroom from the ceremony to the reception and again from the reception to the dance. It was done with very little interruption in the flow of the events.
    If you are having a medium to large wedding they may put tables on the veranda for some of the guests, which is beautiful, but hard to hear the speeches even though the doors to the ballroom are open. I would recommend putting an extra speaker for the guests out there.
    If your looking for a place that provides a personal touch this is the place for you. I'm pretty sure the owners know the names of every couple who has been married here. They really helped make us feel that this was our special day and that they were there for us. The bridal suite is perfect for beautiful getting ready pictures for the bridal party. The venue is naturally a beautiful space and so there is really no need for a lot of extra flowers or decorations.
    This made the perfect place for our wedding. We couldn't be happier with the service and professionalism of the staff. They really helped make our day our own.

    My husband and I chose Cedarhurst because we wanted to have our wedding at a beautiful place. The ceremony was outside in the garden. We had champagne toast in the garden immediately following the ceremony. Tables were set both inside the ballroom and the beautiful outdoor balcony. The staff was great and professional. And, our guests absolutely loved the place. Even though it has been several years since our wedding, friends still remember how beautiful and great the wedding was.

    True and his staff are very helpful. We loved the location as it is truly beautiful! The food was delicious and the space is gorgeous. The mansion is great because there are several rooms for guests to move through. Guests could hang out by the bar or in the ballroom and still hear what is going on. The staff was very professional on the actual wedding day. We received many compliments about Cedarhurst. Our overall experience was positive and we would reccommend Cedarhurst to family and friends.

    The cost was high to rent the space and the cost of the food was also high. If there wasn't a fee to rent the facility the cost of food and drinks would make more sense. I had asked that they use less mushrooms in one of our entrees and instead they put more mushrooms.

    Our wedding was in the winter and I had asked that they make sure to put down tons of salt. They may have put down salt, but it was not nearly enough. Many of our guests slipped and fell several times on the way to their cars. There should also be more lighting for when guests are walking to their cars.

    This is a great venue for couples looking to have the ceremony and reception in the same spot. The mansion and grounds are beautiful and provide a regal setting for photos. The venue can accommodate either an indoor or outdoor ceremony. While the menu selection is not extensive, we received many compliments on the food. You are only allowed two entree choices, so make sure to read the contract carefully to avoid incurring additional expenses if you need a small number of vegetarian meals . True was generally responsive to our inquiries, and was flexible to make sure the day went as we wanted. We were very pleased with the service at Cedarhurst.
