We had our ceremony and reception at The Manor at the end of October and it was the most stunning evening. The outdoor ceremony was the most glorious moment of my life (we were extremely lucky with the weather!) and the cocktail hour and reception were wonderful. The rooms we immaculate, the food and drinks outstanding, and the staff perfect. Willimae (Willie) was my bridal attendant and fulfilled and anticipated every need. She was at my side any time I needed her and when I didn't she was the wind, completely out of the way. She was lovely to spend the evening with. Highly recommend this location!

The Manor has been a family favorite for its buffet for many years. I have always loved the way the venue looked...classic, timeless, vintage. As soon as we pulled up with my parents Kevin said, "This is a place where a princess would get married, and we should definitely have our wedding here." From the moment we met Jim, I knew we would have our reception here. They were so accommodating and the food was spectacular. We had an amazing cocktail hour, reception dinner, and Viennese hour. Everything we ate we loved! The grounds were outstanding and well-kept for picture taking. I don't have one bad thing to say about The Manor. I can't wait to spend our first anniversary here for dinner. Thank you for the unbelievable service, spectacular food, fully stocked open bar (with the exception of Fireball!) and beautiful cocktail hour in the Wine Cellar for our bridal party. It was an amazing day. THANK YOU! Nicole & Kevin 10.11.15

We couldn't be happier on our wedding night. Everybody at The Manor is so kind and helpful. The food was unbelievable. Our guests kept coming to us raving about the quality of the food! They were very responsive from the moment we came to see the venue for the first time to the moment we left. Extremely flexible accommodating every single one of our requests. The staff was extremely helpful and well organized. We have absolutely nothing negative to say about this venue....and we are known for being very picky :). We highly recommend this venue for your wedding!

Excellent excellent excellent. Yes, The Manor does a lot of events and weddings, but it's because they are incredible-- they operate like a well-oiled machine. In planning, they were answering my questions before I even knew that I didn't know something... They are simply wonderful at pulling weddings off. Everything went off without a hitch. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and how unbelievable the food. Rolph, our Maitre d' was the absolute best (a service included)-- he was so friendly, helpful and supportive. The Manor made our wedding day the absolute best day ever!!

I'll keep it short & sweet!

The Manor was absolutely terrific, our wedding was in the Virginia room, it was so elegant! I especially love the white chairs! The grounds were perfect! The weather was so nice, we got to have an outdoor bar, which I loved!

Our main reason for booking this venue was because of the food, my husband & I went to the Manor years ago while we were dating & the food was just so delicious! Most wedding venues have very generic food that's just okay, but not the Manor! Our guests raved about cocktail hour, some thought it was dinner, even my own Dad! Dinner was great, i tried the chicken & steak, YUM! Our cake was very good, not the typical overly sugary wedding cake. But the best part food wise was the additional package we got, the dessert bar! Oh my goodness, our guests loved it! I was in shock, I couldn't believe the amount of desserts!!

The staff was kind, attentive & accommodating. I have nothing but positive things to say! Thank you to all of the staff who made our big day extra special!!!

We had our wedding at the Manor on August 15th, 2015 and our guests are still raving about the experience. 5+ stars from top to bottom. This is THE quintessential place to have a classy, modern but not over-the-top wedding and reception.

About a year before, we met with Rolf who from the start was phenomenal in every aspect. From swiftly-returned phone calls to extensive conversations (we talked quite a bit as we planned this from out of town) he was absolutely a pleasure to work with! We unfortunately had a very difficult vendor the day of (not affiliated with The Manor whatsoever) and he played a big role in facilitating a smooth day.

The staff was incredible, and our Maître D' George was key in making sure the band, the video production people and the kitchen were in-tune. The whole wedding was coordinated like a well-produced show. Because of The Manor's experience and professionalism all we had to do was show up! BTW, we had our reception in the Virginia Room, which we loved.

The food was also 5-star. Unbelievable cocktail hour, with nearly everything you could imagine. The passed hor de voures were raved about, and the stations, carving displays, cold-tables, seafood bar were all fresh and delicious. Dinner was served hot and beautifully presented; not 1 complaint-- in fact, the food is something everyone seems to still rave about when bringing up our wedding.

The grounds, the food, the staff- it's all enough for us to give The Manor a 5-star review all the way. Since they are also a restaurant, we will be back to celebrate future occasions and visit the site of the happiest day of our lives' so far!

The Manor did an exceptional job on our special day! Everything went exactly as planned and we had the best time. The food was absolutely delicious and our family and friends could not stop talking about it. The atmosphere was beautiful and the grounds were gorgeous as they gave us amazing backgrounds for many of our wedding pictures. The Manor made our day so very special and we would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue for their big day.

We looked at several venues but nothing compared to The Manor in terms of packages, value, and beauty! We were married at the Manor on June 7th - we had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception there. The outdoor ceremony space is beyond gorgeous - there really is no comparison. Because it rained the entire week prior, Preston (our sales manager) also reserved a separate indoor room as plan b. Thankfully we didn't need it! All of their rooms are great but we went with the Virginia room which was perfect! The room opens up to a insulated huge patio (for lack of a better word) which is where the cocktail hour was held. All doors open up to the beautiful grounds, seconds from the ceremony location. So, for our guests, everything was located in one area - extremely convenient. And access to outside!
Planning with The Manor is very easy - this is their business and they easily lay everything out for you. We worked with Preston to set everything up and Marvin was day-of coordinator. He was awesome! Super friendly, extremely attentive... he made the entire day work perfectly. I was assigned a bridal assistant as well who was AMAZING! She set up our bridal suite with champagne and food, made sure we all had water as we took pictures outside, helped me with everything - including a complicated bustle. What a gem!
We continue to get compliments on the location - how beautiful the grounds were, to the amazing food -- our guests continue to rave about the cocktail hour, in which many filled up on delicious oysters, shrimp, carving tables, and much, much more. You cannot beat the cocktail hour at The Manor. Dinner was equally as good - the duck was divine. I can't wait to return to
The Manor for dinner or their seafood buffet - the food is truly delicious.
As for brides worrying about other weddings going on... we had one wedding before ours (I never saw them) and one after (only saw the bride once while taking pictures). Do not let that bother you!

OMG I have too many great things to say about this place! My wedding went so flawlessly, and everyone was raving about the food and service provided by the Manor. Our cake was AMAZING!!! We chose red velvet with cannoli cream filling and buttercream icing, everyone loved it!!! George (my maitre'd) was excellent, and so was my bridal attendant (never got her name)! You would never think that there were other events going on at the same time with this venue! We worked with Rolf for wedding planning, and he was very attentive and responsive to all the emails and requests I wrote/asked. I wish I could relive the day over and over again! Thank you so much to everyone at The Manor for making our wedding unforgettable!
