What an amazing day! The Highlands Country Club did an amazing job at making our wedding such a special and memorable day! Everything was just wonderful and perfect. So many guests commented on how friendly the staff was and how great the food was. I have to agree! Danielle and her team made us feel like everything was taken care of from beginning to end. They all work so hard and really seem to care that the guests are happy! The ambiance was wonderful! Between our florist and the venue, it was magical. The little details and candles spread thought the ball room were breathtaking.

I can't say enough about our experience with Danielle. Her kindness and professionalism was beyond our expectations. Not only dealing with me, but responding to emails from my fiancé and parents she was so patient and helpful! On the day of, I really felt as though I didn't have to work anymore and I could just sit back and enjoy because they had it taken care of. What a special place to get married. I only hope I can attend a wedding there one day and enjoy it from a different perspective :)

I'm not a bride. I'm not a groom. I wasn't a guest, but now I can say that everyone of these glowing reviews all true without one shred of exaggeration. In fact, they are grossly understated.
I'm in a neutral corner where my review is concerned, and completely unbiased either way.
I was the DJ at the Highlands Country Club where I did the music for a wedding this past Saturday night 9/13/14. This was my first time at this venue. I've been in the arena of doing weddings for the past 25 years from NYC to Albany and I never have been at a facility where every detail, the food, the service and the courtesy extended to us made us feel like royalty. I could only imagine how this bride and groom and all the guests must have been treated. ....and the person responsible for this wedding coming together in a flawless way was Danielle West, the catering manager at this venue.
The timing of every formality ( the intros, dinner, dessert table etc.) was expertly laid out on a form with the times of all these segments are taking place. Now I've been in this business to know when get handed a sheet of paper with all these event times never work out and I told Danielle this. That could not have been any further from the truth. This place ran like a clock. Again, this young women Danielle had a handle on every aspect of this celebration.
Now you probably are thinking I' m looking for referrals from this hall. This was the first time for me to be at HCC and it might very well be my last. For this reason I will not mention who I am. However, Danielle knows, the bride and groom knows and all the guests and that's the only thing that matters. This is not an ad for my service. This is the absolute truth about this facility and how extremely well this wedding was coordinated.
To all the owners, associates and staff, I can only say Danielle is rare in this business. She's a keeper gentlemen.
No grandstanding for me, just the God's honest truth and I wanted to tell everyone!

I wish I could re-live my wedding day over and over again! Where to begin...Highlands Country Club was my dream wedding venue. It was the very first venue I looked at, and as soon as I saw it I knew it was "the one." It is beautiful and elgant in a country setting, my favorite aspect of it is that it didn't look like a typical country club wedding venue in the space (no awful carpeting or flourescent lighting). Sarah M. (who we loved) was our initial coordinator, but she resigned two weeks before our wedding. Danielle took her place and did an amazing job! We love her! Just to organize my thoughts a bit, I'd like to list
Pros:
-The food is amazing (they have their own caterer, same chef as the restaurant there and at The Garrison)! I must admit I'm not a big foodie, but I was so impressed, and so were all my guests! Everyone actually finished their food (unusual for a wedding). They also don't make you add the dinner selections to your response cards (in the wedding invite), which I really like.
-They set-up for you. You do not have to worry about coordinating with your florist on the day of your wedding, or setting up your escort cards, favors, etc. They handle this for you. My wedding day was stress free as soon as I arrived at HCC. No need to hire a day of coordinator!
-They only have one wedding per day there. This makes for a more unique experience , you are the only bride!
-The staff was all so nice and helpful...they were all congratulating me, complimenting me on my dress and ceremony, etc.
-Danielle made sure I got to eat and drink during the night
-The venue and grounds are just so beautiful...they have fire pits and lawn furniture outside where many of our guests enjoyed the party outside during reception (the venue makes it easy to hang out in or outside)
-linens, printed menu, signature drinks included

We had our wedding at The Highlands on August 31st. Our wedding couldn’t have been more beautiful, although it could have been a lot less stressful based on our experience with management. The venue itself was gorgeous, the food was excellent, but our event sales manager, Sarah M, caused a lot of undue stress and aggravation throughout the planning process as well as on the day of our wedding.

The day that we visited The Highlands for the first time, we instantly fell in love with the property. We met with Sarah, who seemed friendly and accomodating. After signing the contract and putting down the deposit, Sarah’s demeanor changed. While she was originally friendly and relateable, she became cold and unhelpful. It became clear that Sarah misrepresented our package and promised us things that she had no intention of following through with. Make sure to get EVERYTHING in writing, no matter how insignificant you may think it is. Also…
- We arrived at the venue to find that the ceremony and cocktail hour, which were supposed to be outside, were set up indoors. We knew there was a chance of rain, but Sarah made the decision without consulting us.
- Sarah was in “meetings” for most of the day, but when she wasn’t, she was rude to everyone involved in the wedding. Including us!
- Our Rabbi was running late and left 4 voicemails for Sarah to let her know that he was lost. When he arrived, she told him that she doesn’t answer the phone or check voicemails. Meanwhile, we anxiously waited for him while Sarah put unnecessary pressure on us to proceed without our Rabbi.
- Every vendor complained about Sarah. And these are professionals who have worked at hundreds of other venues with all types of people, which says a lot about how she conducts herself.

Sarah did everything possible to make our wedding day as unpleasant as possible. Despite her best efforts, we still had a great wedding due to the rest of the staff, wonderful food and our amazing vendors.

I got married at the Highlands Country Club in August 2014 and had an absolutely wonderful day! I worked with Danielle who was a super organized and attentive event planner. She was on top of everything on the day of my wedding, and made everything run flawlessly!

The Highlands ballroom is absolutely magnificent! The space is beautifully decorated and a very intimate and classy space to have a wedding. The food is not your typical wedding catered food, but restaurant quality. Everyone at my wedding was raving about how great the food was!

I am so glad that I found the Highlands Country Club, would highly recommend!!!

Highlands is a beautiful venue and overall I was extremely pleased with the service and space. The staff worked really hard to set everything up perfectly and really went the extra mile. The only drawbacks are they are strict with things like throwing rice or hanging anything from the walls or ceiling and one of their supply closets is located inside the bridal suite so it was annoying and disruptive to have a bunch of staff members walking in and out.

The moment I walked into the Highlands Country Club I knew I wanted to have my wedding there! The venue is gorgeous! It is a perfect scale for a smaller wedding (we had about 100 guests) and the various rooms and outdoor spaces allowed for fun mingling of guests. It was close enough to Manhattan that many city dwellers took the train. But the privacy surrounded by hills and a quiet golf course led many guests to describe it as an "at home destination wedding." S'mores at a wedding was a hit larger than I imagined it would be.
Danielle was amazing, supportive and helped the day go along smoothly. She helped guide all the vendors on site so I had nothing to worry about but enjoying my day.

I don't know what I would do without Danielle. She truly became part of the family during the planning process - she was professional, kind, caring and pretty much understood what I wanted. Her and her team executed everything very well. The food exceeded all expectations, service was amazing, her attention to details, to us and the guests. I would do it all over again if I had to right there. Thank you Danielle and everyone at HCC!
