My fiance and I got engaged in April and have been checking out the venues in Fairfield county, CT and Westchester. We decided we’d like to be on the water, don’t want anything cheesy, and don’t want a cramped feeling for around 120 people. We have both fallen in love with 2 different venues. I can’t seem to stop debating the pro’s and con’s of these 2 venues in my head, so thought I’d ask for some feedback. My fiance absolutely loves Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club because of the unobstructed views. I am leaning more toward Coveleigh in Rye because of the charm of the old mansion. My fiance is really bothered that you can see the pool and tennis court when you look out the windows. I haven’t tried the food at either place, has anyone been to these venues and can offer some advice?

I was just maid of honor for my best friend’s wedding at Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht Club. I was really amazed at how beautiful everything was. Her ceremony was in this beautiful rose garden overlooking the water, cocktails were outside overlooking the water at sunset, and the reception was in their ballroom. The thing that is really important to keep in mind is how very different everything seemed on the night of the wedding. When we went to look, it was beautiful, of course, but when the ballroom was set up for the reception, it was totally unbelievable. They did tell us that things would look different once the tables were set and everything was in place, but we were amazed. And the food was out of this world.
Her pictures just came back and they look amazing. She took a ton all over the place — the beach, in front of the stone mansion, and in this private park they have.

I was married at the Coveleigh Club (after also looking at Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht) and it was AMAZING! I found the reception room in the Mamaroneck beach and Yacht Club to be a bit dated and didn’t have that charming feel that I was looking for. You have absolutely unobstructed views there and you don’t even see the pool or the tennis court. We even had our ceremony out on the lawn and you could not see the pool.
The staff at Coveleigh is so helpful too, there is no nickle or diming, and they will do a terrific job for you. I don’t normally like “club” food, but the food at Coveleigh is top notch!
I am happy to answer any questions.
