My husband and myself wanted to write a review about the beautiful Altamont Manor. We began planning our wedding a year ago, with little known about what our wedding would entail. I thought everything I needed to know would be on my favorite website Pinterest. WRONG. So much more detail and planning that only a professional could help with was needed. Harvey at the Altamont manor was a phenomal help with every detail. He had a plan for everything good or bad. Alittle about my wedding I was originally supposed to have 115 people which toward the end turned into 170. My wedding day it poured. For those two reasons alone my wedding could've gone array but with Harvey's plan A and B it went PERFECT. The venue itself is beautiful if your unsure go take a look, you'll fall in love just like I did. Thank you to the Altamont Manor and it's owners who help make my fairytale wedding a reality. I am forever grateful:)

For our wedding, we couldn't have made a better choice than to select the Altamont Manor as our venue. Since we were doing a renaissance/fairy theme wedding, we were having some issues with other venues, however Harvey really got into what we planned and helped along with each step of the process. In addition, they also offer their own photography services, which has led to several amazing pictures since they know the lands like the back of their hand and were able to maximize them. In short, it was a pleasure working with them, and they were very accommodating in helping us with our special day.

After a year of planning...our wedding day was spectacular. We picked the Altamont Manor because the Victorian home and gardens suited our style AND because Harvey made us feel at ease. We had a good feeling that we were in good hands and that we were. The only element out of my control was the weather....and the weather was pretty dismal that day. Harvey had Plan A, B, and C in place but I had Plan A (the outside garden setting) in my heart....and when my brother saw a brief opening in the weather...Harvey made it happen. I got my outside, garden wedding ceremony!! 10 minutes after...the rain came down, but we didn't care because we were inside and celebrating! Thank you Harvey!!

I highly recommend The Altamont Manor for multiple reasons. First, the beauty and ambiance of the Manor is charming. Secondly, Harvey made everything run smoothly without even knowing he was around! He called our group "spirited...but well behaved!" which I loved!! All the vendors put on a nice smile and had kind words about Harvey when I announced our venue.

My guests raved about the evening too which thrilled me.

If I had it to do all over again....I would most definately choose Altamont Manor and I would recommend it to all you without one single reservation.

My husband and I just had our wedding here two weeks ago and had a wonderful experience. Harvey was very helpful with helping us find other vendors such as caters, officiant, and DJ. Harvey also did the photography which came out beautiful. He was very flexible with the ceremony due to the weather forecast and very helpful to make our day run smooth.

We would highly recommend Altamont Manor for a wedding venue and photography. It's a beautiful and romantic setting with a vintage charm. We were so happy that we chose to had our wedding here. Thank you so much for making our day special.

My husband and I got married at the Altamont Manor 2 weeks ago. Many thanks to Harvey and his wife, Donna, for providing the perfect place for our wedding! We, along with so many of our guests, raved about how beautiful the gardens were (in full bloom, on a perfectly sunny day, as promised). Harvey and Donna were also our photographers and created so many beautiful photos of us and our guests! They knew all of the perfect places to capture the essence of the best day of my life! During our reception, one guest said, "If I could do my wedding over, I would have it here at the Altamont Manor. The views are spectacular!" Other friends and family described the Altamont Manor as "gorgeous, romantic and intimate." We absolutely agree!!!

My wife and I got married at the Altamone Manor in August 2014. Harvey and his wife were our photographers. Every type of phot request was fulfilled and they were very organized in helping with the planning and execution of our couple, bridal party and family photos. All of our pictures are beautiful! They took excellent photos to capture all of our special moments and they were able to get photos of every guest during our reception. We are so grateful to have such amazing photos that tell the story of our special day. We couldn't have asked fore a more perfect place to become husband and wife. The beautiful outdoor and indoor settings offered a romatic feel that is reflected in all of our pictures.

We knew the moment we arrived that the manor would be perfect, and it was. From the beautiful gardens, to the porch and reception room. We loved the way we could have everything in one place. We also chose to hire the owners, Harvey and Donna to do our photography. We're so glad we did! Our pictures are so beautiful, we are having a hard time choosing which ones to enlarge. We chose to do the majority of photos just before the ceremony so we only had a few to do during cocktail hour. Harvey was great to work with throughout the planning process, giving advice and working with all of our requests. We highly recommend the Altamont Manor and the Vlahos' for a beautiful memorable wedding!

Our wedding was a beautiful dream come true. And in no small part due to Harvey, Donna and the Altamont Manor. I was a bride who knew exactly what I wanted and the Manor was it! When we went to see the Manor, it was winter so we had to trust Harvey on how the plants and garden would look, he didn't disappoint. A beautiful garden, vintage elegance, yet intimate. Having our ceremony and reception all in one place made it so relaxed for everyone. We also hired the Vlahos' for our photos. I love the fact that because Harvey has built such a good rapport with amazing vendors, everything went like clockwork. I highly recommend this venue!

The Manor has beautiful gardens, grounds, and indoor venue. Harvey and Donna were extremely helpful though out the planning process and even more so when the day of the event arrived. Everything was straight forward and easy, if we needed something all we had to do was find them.

I would highly recommend using the Manor for your wedding or event, they made everything so simple and it was nice being able to do everything at one venue and not have to work out travel arrangements to get the guest from the ceremony to the reception.

When I first started looking for wedding venues I wasn't really sure what we wanted. I knew that we had talked about getting married outside and the first thought that came to mind was the rose garden in Schenectady. Then I came across the Altamont manor on this site. I fell in love with the pictures, I loved the atmosphere of the olderstyle manor, and the garden with the fountain was beautiful. It was exactly what I had been looking for. I told my now husband that I wanted to go and look, he agreed. When we got to the property I knew this was the place. We could do the ceremony and reception all in one location and it would save us so much hassle in regards to making sure guests made it from one location to the next. When we met Harvey the owner for the first time he was very friendly and helpful. He took us through the grounds and told us about how other weddings had been a success there as if it was second nature. Harvey and his wife Donna have been holding weddings at the manor for 30 years, they are definitely experts. They remember all of the little details you may not have thought to think about and their sole focus is to make sure that your day runs smoothly.
After we had gone over the details as to what we would like our wedding day to be like, and after we had booked the date. Harvey then mentioned that both he and his wife are professional photographers. He suggested that they could do our photos and showed us photos they had done of past weddings. I was again in awe, the photos were gorgeous. Who would be better to take our photos than the people who live at the manor and know what blooms when, and where the light from the sun shines just right. We were sold. The added benefit of booking Harvey and Donna for photos was that we were able to come early before the ceremony to get all of those needed family and bridal party photos out of the way.
I was very happy with the service provided by Harvey and his wife Donna, our wedding was absolutely perfect.
