Tarrytown House Estate is a magnificent venue to have a wedding. There are so many choices of indoor and outdoor spaces to choose from. So if it rains the indoor spaces are beautiful and if weather is good, the outdoor spaces are so scenic. If you have a smaller number of guests, there is the Biddle Mansion or Winter Palace. For larger numbers the Mary Duke Ballroom is available. The Statue Garden is where we had the ceremony (the weather finally cleared up). The lawn and gardens are beautifully kept and make for a scenic backdrop for a ceremony. Staff is courteous & friendly. Our wedding planner, Gail, was there every step to guide us and make suggestions. Rooms (very nice & clean) are available for out of town guests, which was important to us, since we had people flying in from all over the world and didn't want them to have to travel around for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony & reception. Very happy with our choice.
Food was delicious, lots of variety- everyone raved about the cocktail hour too. Get the Chocolate Sampler for dessert.

From the moment we drove through the front gate, we knew this is where we wanted to have our wedding. The beautiful landscape and the architectural detail of the mansions on the estate makes you feel as if you have been transported to another time and land. Dave Smith, the catering manager, is absolutely amazing. He was attentive, kind, professional, informative and an absolute pleasure to work with. Every e-mail I sent over 12 months of planning was answered in the same day. The convenience of having a hotel on site is also a plus. They gave us a special group rate, and my wedding wound up booking almost 50 of their rooms. Everyone said they had a nice stay. Our wedding was perfect and everything ran smoothly. The cocktail hour was 1/2 inside and 1/2 outside on the beautiful terrace - luckily we had beautiful weather. The reception was in the Mary Duke Ballroom. All my guests were raving about how amazing the food was - every entree was delicious. We also did the dessert hour which was a huge hit with our guests. Overall, I could not say enough wonderful things about this venue. They surpassed my expectations, which is not easy to do.

HIGHLY recommend the Tarrytown House Estate! It is what little girls dream of as their wedding site. The views are breathtaking, the grounds are impeccable, on-site hotel, cellar 49 and the castle feel of a fairytale wedding. We worked with David Smith, the catering manager and I can not speak highly enough, he was very hands on, quick to reply to any question asked and so personable - amazing to work with. The entire staff was amazing and it really made our wedding all that we could of dreamed of and more! Lauren & Steve Hay

I can't even express in words how wonderful our wedding was and it was all made possible by the Director of Catering and his staff. David was absolutely amazing. The grounds gorgeous and still 8 months later I'm hearing comment of how fantastic the food at our wedding was. I would recommend Tarrytown House & Estates to anyone looking for a historic venue w/ a Director who caters to your every need.

My wedding was this weekend at the Tarrytown house. All I can say is WOW. The day went better than I ever pictured it. From the moment we arrived the staff helped us get settled into our rooms and brought us some food to munch on while we were taking pictures. Then we flowed right into cocktail hour and I can not say enough about the amazing food. And the staff they were great. The entire night from start to finish was picture perfect. Dave Smith the catering manager took care of every single detail and he did not disappoint. : )

We held our wedding at Tarrytown House Estate over Labor Day weekend. The hold a number of events every weekend, so they have it down to a science and everything was seemless. You also do not realize that the other events are going on (so I didn't feel like I was in a wedding factory). Big plus.

Everything was on-site: outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour (they also have indoor options), indoor reception, rehearsal dinner, and a cocktail hour for guests staying at the hotel the night before the wedding. All events were perfect. Since it's a hotel, we could stay onsite too, so no transportation was necessary. The hotel itself offers a breakfast (it's not free, but it is very good); they have a terrific hotel restaurant with a very nice adjecent bar area; lots for guests to do on the property -- two pools (the outdoor pool with a very nice bar/cafe), fitness center, massages available by appointment, tennis, raquette ball, bocce, horse shoes, basket ball; and it's close to a numer of tourist attractions. It's super easy to get there too -- some friends made it all the way from La Guardia on public transportation alone (except for a quick cab from the train station in Tarrytown).

The quality of the food and the service was excellent. It was beyond what I had hoped for. Our event coordinator from Tarrytown House, Dave Smith, was outstanding. He gave a thousand percent to us and our event. I can't say enough good things about him.

A few potential negatives are as follows: you must choose your baker and florist from the list they provide. I was very happy with the choices offered to us, but if you have your heart set on a certain florist, they may not be on the list. Also, the hotel restaurant and bar is only open to guests of the hotel, so a number of our guests not staying at the hotel could not join us for the after-party. However, I found that the people who would have stayed at the after-party stayed at the hotel anyway. Finally, you may also have some problems with their reservation department. For some reason, they cannot figure out how to make their reservation process easy. The majority of our head-aches came from this group. You need to make sure you are crystal clear when talking to the reservation department, and follow-up with them fanatically. However, Dave Smith immediately helped us fix any problems, and the wedding itself was so terrific, as was the whole weekend, that it makes those problems seem completely insignificant now.

I would recommend Tarrytown House Estate many times over. They made my wedding everything I had ever wanted.
