My husband and I had the most amazing wedding all because of Leon at Colonial Terrace. He made our wedding vision a reality. Originally, our wedding plan was to have an outdoor in Vermont, where I (the bride) lived for the past few years. It was my dream. It wasn't able to happen, and I didn't think my wedding would be what I had envisioned because of it. I was wrong. Leon wanted me to have that wedding I envisioned, even if it was in New York! It was absolutely PERFECT. It was the beautiful, outdoor, intimate wedding I had envisioned and MORE..and it didn't matter that it was not in Vermont. He listened, he cared and he knew EXACTLY what I wanted and he made it happen. I cannot rave about Leon and his staff enough. Many people came up to us telling us it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Leon also recommended the best vendors. We trusted him and his judgment and he didn't let us down. The food was AMAZING and everything went so smoothly...it went off without a single hitch. Short of naming our future kids Leon, I don't know how else to show how grateful we are!!!!! He took a bride who was sad that she couldn't get married outside in Vermont, and gave her the most amazing wedding and party she and her husband could have ever dreamed of. Leon has been in this business for many years and it shows. Whether you have your party at Colonial terrace or have him cater, he is amazing and he listens and DELIVERS! Thank you Leon and your entire Colonial Terrace staff.Sent on 09/15/2013

My daughter's wedding was amazing, beyond anything I could have expected. Leon Drogy personally took care of each and every detail. There was nothing for us to do except pick colors!Sent on 10/22/2013
Originally, we had selected to have the wedding at the Colonial Terrace because I had attended a wedding there once before and was overwhelmed by its beauty. We were thrilled when we booked our wedding but, subsequently, a transportation issue for one of our closest family members made it difficult. Leon immediately suggested another property and he took care of everything!
Leon had a huge tent set up and had all of the catering done on the premises. He put together the most magical wedding! The food was exceptional and there was something for everyone. We chose not to have a "sit-down" reception with waiters coming to the tables but to have various "stations" set up so our guests could walk around and select whatever they wanted. The lighting and table set-up were stunning. The alcohol and beverages were top shelf. It's been a month and still, every few days, someone calls to tell me how magnificent the wedding was. Two of our guests are planning to speak to Leon about holding their weddings with him!
I can not say enough about how happy I am. A venue can be beautiful but without someone coordinating the affair and seeing to every detail and making sure this will be the most magical day of the couple's life, the wedding will not be anything special. LEON DROGY, at the Mansion at Colonial Terrace, made this wedding spectacular!

My fiancé and I got engaged February 19th 2011. We knew it would be a long engagement due to various factors, but we thought perhaps the best thing to do would be to book our wedding venue early and give us a peace of mind that the BIG decision has been made. In March of 2011, we started calling around looking for wedding vendors who would be willing to set a date2 and a half years away for August of 2013. Many people laughed at us, saying that it was ridiculous we were looking so early, however when we drove up to the Mansion Leon and Ann didn’t give it a second thought and gave us a wonderful tour of all the Mansion had to offer. They made us feel comfortable, didn’t pressure us, and understood our needs. The prices were reasonable, so much was included! We didn’t feel like we were getting rolled over for $$ like so many other Westchester venues. We booked our wedding just on that very first visit.Sent on 08/23/2013
Time seemed to go by fast thru the planning, and we designed a wedding that was truly unique and fit our personalities. They were available to help when I had questions and eased our minds about the various stresses we were concerned about as we were planning. It almost seemed like they knew what we wanted before we asked for it, just by getting to know our personalities.
The day of the wedding, everything was amazing. Starting with my special request of turkey bacon and breakfast nosch’s for while we were getting ready, to making sure all the wedding party was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. We got married on the lawn, and the experience of walking down that long stretch of grass to my fiancé standing at the end was one of the most memorable experiences in my life.
The cocktail hour was amazing; everyone could not believe the amount of food that was there! The tent was decorated with sheik garlands that matched the theme of our wedding, and it was simply a perfect outside affair. Everyone got moved into the ballroom which was expertly l

From start to finish this was the most amazing experience. Leon and Alan were the best. They were hands on and helped us through every step of the way. Leon took our vision and ran with it. He gave us everything we wanted and so much more. He made our wedding, OUR WEDDING. From our first meeting to the day of, we worked with him to build the wedding from the ground up. Every detail from the ceremony look and feel, cocktail hour menu, cake, table settings and center pieces and everything in between was tailored to us. We felt like we were party of the family and actually had say in the entire process. This was no cookie cutter wedding. The entire staff was helpful and attentive. If we needed something all we had to do was ask.Sent on 08/28/2013
Everything went so smoothly. Leon was so helpful in making sure everyone was where they needed to be when they needed to be there. After looking back and seeing how other venues worked, we don't know how we would have made it without the help of Leon and Alan. They went above and beyond what you would expect from your venue. They offered helpful tips and recommendations about all aspects of our wedding.
The food was amazing. Everyone is still talking about the amazing selection we had a the cocktail hour. So many choices, there was certainly something for everyone. The bar menu was great as well. We were able to have our wedding party create signature drinks that were a huge hit. ICE LUGE too! Be sure to ask Leon about the Ice Luge. It was amazing and such a huge hit with everyone at the wedding. Dinner was amazing and run smoothly. Leon and his staff were about to coordinate everything perfectly to the entire night ran seamlessly.
We can't thank Leon and Alan enough for hosting such an amazing wedding and making everything so easy and enjoyable. The only regret we have is that we don't get to do it all over again.

There are no words to describe Leon from The Mansion at Colonial Terrace. He totally coordinated an off site wedding for us and it was spectacular. The cocktail hour was beyond belief - people told us the food was better than at restaurants, the presentation was fab - everything was fresh - hot food was actually hot, cold food chilled on ice - the selection was amazing. Leon worked closely with me for months before the event to make sure that the wedding would be perfection. We had 4 dinner choices, most people opted for the sirloin stead or the salmon with mango salsa which were grilled fresh on site - not pre-cooked and finished on site - and words like "the best salmon I ever had" and "the steak was grilled to perfection, just like I ordered it" were heard fro every table, The vegetables were seasonal and all fresh - service was excellent. The wedding cake was actually great - moist and flavorful - people actually ate it and LOVED it. He supplied the tent, lighting, dance floor, rentals, everything so it was one stop shopping and I didn't have to worry about anything. He promised me it would be great and he more than delivered. I cannot recommend him highly enough - he made my daughters day truly special. He deserves a 10. THANK YOU LEON!Sent on 07/16/2013

From the moment we walked into the ballroom on our tour we fell in love with the beauty and elegance of this mansion. We sat with Leon who was friendly & knowledgable. We had no idea when we signed our contract what we were in for! Leon wasted no time giving us personal attention, and options to customize our wedding to make it fit our style. He went above and beyond to do everything/anything he could to accomadate our budget and dream wedding! I am so thankful that I had the pleasure of working with Drogy family as well as the whole staff! They were all so professional and attentive from set up to clean up!Sent on 02/28/2013

We had an amazing reception at Colonial Terrace with rave reviews from all guests! Leon customized the wedding to our style exactly. Colonial Terrace is extremely flexible and will work with you to create the wedding you have always wanted. Their team worked with us to create a lively reception that had the guests on the dance floor the whole time. After the wedding guests could not stop telling us how much fun they had. They also loved the personal touches we added to the reception, such as family pictures and appetizers that the bride and groom picked out. The food was outstanding. Leon and his team have years of catering and event hosting experience and can make any type of appetizer you would like and our guests said that everything was delicious. The main ballroom is gorgeous and has a beautiful wooden dance floor and grand chandelier. It makes a great statement to guests when they first enter the reception. We had over 200 people and there was plenty of room for everyone on the dance floor. Many people told us it was the best reception they had ever been to, including my grandfather who has 10 married children! It was so nice to know that we had our dream wedding and that our guests loved it too. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for an outstanding and personalized wedding reception.Sent on 01/16/2013

There are so many wonderful things that I wish to say about Colonial Terrace on behalf of my husband and myself that I don't even know where to begin! From the minute that we stepped into Colonial Terrace on our first visit to prospective reception sites, we pretty much knew right away that it was going to be "the one" for us. Leon invited us in with open arms and spent as long as we needed answering our questions, showing us the grounds, and going over multiple options for us to consider when planning our big day. Since we live 4 hours away, I was initially hesitant on how that would factor into planning our wedding. However, Leon was always available to answer our phone calls, and encouraged us to drop by whenever we were in town, whenever it was most convenient for us.Sent on 09/27/2012
Our wedding day was everything that we dreamed of and more. Our guests were wowed from the minute they arrived. Having food stations (as opposed to passed hors d'oeuvres) was a total crowd pleaser! The amount and quality of the food was unbelievable. When we snuck inside to glimpse at the room before our guests went inside, it took our breath away. The room was arranged just the way we wanted it, and had an almost fairytale-like quality to it. The night went off without a hitch, and everyone told us what an amazing wedding it was. The dinner was extraordinarily good, and all the dessert options provided a nice change of pace from just the traditional wedding cake (highly recommend the ice cream sundaes and fried Oreos!) The party atmosphere was present from the moment that our bridal party was introduced to the time that the last guests exited at the end of the night.
We highly recommend the Mansion at Colonial Terrace to all couples! They will truly make your night one of a kind and make your wedding dreams come true!
Dana · Married on 08/12/2012
We recently held our wedding at the Mansion, and everything was great. As others have stated, the food was amazing. We received numerous compliments on it! The cocktail hour had so much food - probably more than you will see at any other wedding. The cake is included in the price, and let me tell you it was delicious. It comes from the Scarsdale Pastry Shop. If you grew up in lower Westchester - you know those cakes are damn good!!Sent on 08/26/2012
Oh and we had a dessert cart with lots of treats which everyone loved. Luckily, I was able to snag two fried oreos! Yum!
The value is incredible. You will not get a better deal in Westchester! (We checked out several places)
We had our wedding under the tent which turned out to be great since it was around 80 degrees. It is nice that there are options - inside, outside or outside under the tent.
If you are Jewish - they have a beautiful chuppah you can use. The grounds are very pretty for outdoor shots. Lots of green grass and beautiful trees.
The staff at the Mansion is great. It is a family run business and they know their stuff. They are very friendly and accommodating. Definitely call Leon today.

Highly Recommend!! - The Mansion at Colonial TerraceSent on 09/10/2012
Where to begin!?… picking The Mansion at Colonial Terrace was the BEST decision we could have ever made!! As all the reviews have said before, Leon and Annie are two of the best people to work with while planning your event and since The Mansion is family owned, you deal directly with the owners about everything related to your wedding. From the first day we met with them we felt at home and we are so happy that they were a part of our special day!
For future Bride and Grooms shopping around for venues: You will be amazed at all the things Leon and Annie did for us and the overwhelming response we received from everyone who attended.
For the past 7 months, Leon and Annie met with us to discuss everything from the food selections, our décor selection, ceremony details… the list goes on and on. We had our tasting in March which was delicious and were encourage by Annie and Leon to stop by at anytime to plan or take pictures (they even spent countless hours with us picking out our theme!).
On the day of our wedding, everything went off without a hitch. It rained in the afternoon, but you wouldn’t know we were inside for the ceremony. Leon transformed the ballroom to look like an outside Wonderland, putting candles down the aisle, a beautiful Chuppa for us to stand under and a gorgeous lace aisle lining.
For cocktail hour, we had more food then you can imagine! We even had a Cigar Roller that everyone raved about (Leon and Annie’s idea!). The food was delicious and everyone was talking about the selection.
For Dinner, the food was incredible! The big ballroom fit 200+ people perfectly and we still had a huge dance floor to dance on. Dessert was amazing! Fried Oreo’s, wedding cake, ice cream sundae bar!!
Anyone who is thinking about getting married in Westchester or the Hudson Valley should absolutely stop by and speak with Annie and Leon. You will be glad you did!

I don’t even know where to begin. Our wedding was almost 8 months ago and people are still talking about it and that it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Words cannot describe how incredibly thankful we are to Leon, Alan, Sheila and Annie. Colonial Terrace was the first and only venue we looked at for our wedding. We knew instantly that this was our place. Leon is seriously the best! He was like my own personal wedding planner! He went above and beyond for us and made the planning stress free. He had so many awesome ideas that made our wedding one of a kind! And it was. Our wedding day was more than we could have ever hoped for!Sent on 01/14/2013
Colonial Terrace has the most beautiful grounds for pictures. Ours came out beautiful! The cocktail hour was unbelievable! There were food stations with SO much food! And of course everything was delicious! We were able to sneak a peak of the grand ballroom while everyone was at the cocktail hour and it was breathtaking! The room looked absolutely perfect! The room was able to fit 250+ very comfortably and the dance floor was still GIGANTIC! The dinner food was amazing as well. Then for dessert, we had our beautiful cake and dessert carts, which was an awesome alternative to a traditional Venetian Table. We even had an ice cream sundae bar!!! Our whole reception was honestly the most AMAZING party ever!!! There is not one single thing that we would change about our wedding day! We are forever grateful to Leon, Alan, Sheila and Annie for making our day absolutely perfect. I wish we could redo the entire day a million times over!!!! We will forever HIGHLY recommend The Mansion at Colonial Terrace to anyone and everyone looking for a perfect party!!

Everyone at Colonial Terrace was professional and very friendly. Working with Leon planning the reception for the past 10 months was calming and fun. He is great and we loved working with him.

This was not only the easiest but best decision to have our nuptials at colonial terrace. Leon is a true rock star! His courtesy and professionalism was greatly appreciated. He truly went above and beyond..2 years later my husband and I considered having our baby shower there but the distance was to far for our most of our guest coming from the city.Sent on 09/25/2013

Would recommend Colonial Terrace to anyone looking to have an awesome wedding and stress free planning. Leon is laid back and promises you the world (and actually delivers). They are accommodating and allow you to drop off reception items at your convenience. We had the most amazing time, our guests haven't stopped talking about the food and the party ... I wish I could fit in this paragraph all that they did. Food was amazing, mansion looked fabulous and all the guests were taken care of.Sent on 08/10/2011
They did a great job of rolling with the punches and seamlessly fixing any issues that jumped up before we even realized there was an issue. Everyone has told us we had the best wedding they have ever been to (including their own) and Leon and Annie deserve most of that credit ... simply amazing!

Leon, Mary and the entire staff at Colonial Terrace were great. Leon kept telling me not to worry about anything because my day would be perfect, and he was absolutely right. Everyone is still raving about my wedding, they loved the food and enjoyed the ambiance. Leon and his staff helped to give me the wedding of my dreams and I am forever grateful to them. Also, I wanted some traditional Caribbean food like rice and peas and jerk chicken and they did it well. I am Caribbean and so is almost everyone that attended our wedding and for them to love the food, should tell you something about Colonial Terrace. Love, Love...Thanks Leon my fellow UB Alumn.....Sent on 08/15/2011

My wedding was on June 25, 2011 - which was a little less than a month ago - and people are still RAVING about wedding. The Mansion at the Colonial Terrace is gorgeous and they really know how to throw an amazing party! The food was absolutely delicious, staff was so accomodating to each guests desires and the atmosphere was/is out of this world.Sent on 07/13/2011
We had our wedding ceremony in the gardens which was beautiful! It couldn't of been more perfect!!! If you want an outdoor ceremony - this is the place to do it!
Our cocktail hour was under a big tent with several different stations and my guests (young and old) LOVED each selection - and the favorite station of them all (which was mine!) - the infamous mashed potato martini bar with all the toppings of bacon, cheddar cheese, gravy, onions - you name it you got it - in a martini glass!!
Reception - I don't know how to explain how AWESOME the reception was!!! We partied like rock stars and the grand ballroom was dressed to impress!!! The details that The Mansion included were breathtaking - they took so much time with making each table perfect down to the ribbon on the napkins! Like I said - its been almost one month since our wedding - and EVERYONE is still talking about what an amazing party The Mansion put together. Not many brides can say they enjoyed their wedding because of the stress that occurs on that day - but I enjoyed every single second! The Mansion makes you feel like royalty - if anything or anyone bothers the bride or groom - The Mansion takes care of it for you which leaves the newlyweds stress free for the whole night!!!
Honestly - I would not change a single thing from my wedding! It was absolutely perfect - my dream wedding came true - all because of The Mansion at the Colonial Terrace!
Thank You Everyone at The Mansion!!!!!!!!

My high school prom was held at colonial terrace in 1996 (ok so I'm datING myself a bit) and when my husband and I began planning our wedding we knew the atmosphere we wanted for our Indian Summer wedding. After looking at quite a few local venues I remember CT and booked a viewing. After walking the grounds and viewing the ballrooms my husband, the less impulsive of the two of us - loved it immediately!Sent on 10/25/2010
From the start of our wedding planning until the the day after the wedding Leon and his team were AMAZING! We had very specific requests (as most brides and grooms do) and the CT team bent over backwards to accommodate us - from amazing vendor recommendations to tailoring the menu to suit our guests' palattes. I was not at all worried about the quality of the service when we booked since I remember the prom being a hit and everyone enjoying the food - which is usually not the case. Fourteen years later for a more momentous occassion I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say bout Colonial Terrace!
Our wedding was a little over a month ago and we are still receiving compliments about the grounds, the service and of course the FOOD! Every thing we selected for the menu was absolutely DELICIOUS! Not ok for what it was - but DELISH! Two weeks before the wedding my mother fell ill and Leon was notified and took extra special care of her as needed on the day of making sure she experienced her daughter's wedding to the fullest despite being slightly under the weather. The sentiment behind that was invaluable.
If you are looking for a cookie cutter wedding where the only thing different about your wedding from the last hundred are the faces in the pictures - you can go anywhere if you are looking to see your wedding vision come to life and share your special day amongst family - book with Colonial Terrace!

I absolutely love Colonial Terrace. They know exactly what they are doing that makes a perfect wedding day. I took all of their advice and we had the most amazing wedding. With it almost being a year later, everyone keeps telling us how beautiful everything was. Their food was fantastic, the ballroom looked spectacular, and Leon was so nice to work with. Prior to the wedding we visited quite a few times to try the food, discuss decor, and general plans and Leon helped us every step of the way in a respectful and professional manner. Leon also contacted our vendors to make sure everything was to go smoothly. Thank you Colonial Terrace for granting us an unforgettable and perfect wedding day!

Wow! I cannot begin to say how amazing the Colonial Terrace was. My husband and I are military and we never saw the place until 3 days before our wedding. The food was fantastic, everyone kept saying how delicious it was and how much there was. The grand ballroom was gorgeous, and was set up exactly how I wanted it. Leon and Sheila were both so nice to work with. They made sure we got to eat at our own mini cocktail hour before we joined the crowd. They helped me with an awesome sparkler exit, and truly made our day magical. You can not go wrong with them!Sent on 11/20/2013

From the moment I walked into the Colonial Terrace I knew that it was exactly what I had been dreaming of for my wedding. We had a masquerade theme and Leon was totally into it from the beginning. He made everything that I wanted happen before I even knew I wanted it. The whole day was absolutely perfect and more beautiful than I could have ever hoped for. I would highly recommend this venue to any bride looking to have the greatest experience of their life. The food was fabulous, at least that's what all my guests have been telling me, I don't remember eating : ) The service was great, the room came out beautiful and it was an awesome party atmosphere from beginning to end. I would change nothing about that day. Thank you so much Leon and everyone at the Colonial Terrace.Sent on 05/02/2012
