if you get to the point where you consider hotels, i recommend the pearl river hilton.  went to a wedding there this fall – near a metro north station, pretty area outside for ceremony, gorgeous glass sunroom for cocktail hour, excellent food, guests can stay there in nice rooms.  i thought it was a classy and elegant wedding.

 

good luck in your search!

Alder Manor in Yonkers (I believe).  I actually have been trying to get some info on them but to no avail.  The website sucks and no one has gotten back to me.  Nonethless, the weddings that have been shot there are amazing.  Do a quick google search to see.

Check out Tarrytown – they are expensive but they have lots of amazing venues. You will have to call though! There is almost no information online other than the phone number anyway:

I really wanted to have my wedding there but couldn’t due to budget. Westchester is pricy!

You should try Lyndhurst Castle in Tarrytown, they have a super cool carriage house which is where the receptions take place (in a tent). Here is there website http://lyndhurst.wordpress.com/ but also google Lyndhurst and wedding and you will find lots of pics. We didnt get married there but took our formal pics there and its a really cool venue with lots of history and character. I strongly suggest you go visit and check it out!

@peoniesforall: Where did you get that info.  It’s not abandoned.  A non-profit org rents the space for events.

@peoniesforall: Unfortunately they haven’t gotten back to me.  Someone suggested contacting the caterer. Chefs at work.  Have to do that after the holidays.

  • Wedding: July 2012

 I had my wedding here this past July. The manor is absolutely beautiful; however, the in-house caterer was a disaster. We sent him the laundry list of issues that occurred on the day of our wedding, including not putting out the dessert table that was included in our contract, cleaning up early while guests were still eating, and not bringing enough food out for the family style setting- even after our guests asked for more. We were so embarrassed to not only to see these problems ourselves, but to also have to hear it from our guests! Also, do not have your wedding here in the summer- we paid a lot of money for AC (at their encouragement), but it couldn’t compete with the heat in July. Honestly, there is way too much to put here, however, most of it came down to organization and cutting corners. I expected some problems- we were taking a risk by not going to a catering hall- but not to the extent in which it occurred. We hoped to resolve these problems and prevent it from happening to future brides, but the caterer ignored our emails and calls. Had he responded, I would have understood that he was running a business that was working on improving, but unfortunately, that is not the case.

 

You will never get another chance at this day. I would ask, no matter where you get married, to see a real wedding as it is set up and handled. I will forever regret that I did not.
