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!

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!

I really wanted to get married in a garden and wanted the reception to be in the same place as the ceremony. When I came across the Manor, I immediately fell in love. Because of budget, we had to choose an afternoon wedding but it turned out more perfect than I could have imagined. I loved being able to rest after the wedding and see my guest again at night. The garden was absolutely breathtaking in August when we got married. The arch was covered in beautiful flowers. I've received nothing but compliments about how gorgeous the venue was and amazing the food was. My guest are still raving about it even a month later. I couldn't be more happy that I chose the Manor!

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!

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!!

My husband and I are so glad we choose The Manor for our venue. We could not be happier with our choice! One of the main reasons why we choose The Manor was because of the beautiful-manicured grounds. There is no place like it! We also loved the elegance and classy feel that the venue has. This place is truly unique and if you want something a little different from the "typical" wedding venue this is your place. We worked with Preston who helped and guided us along. He was very easy going and did not make us feel pressured at any point. George was our Maitre'd and did a wonderful job over seeing the night. The Manor included our cake and did a breath taking job. A few guests told me it was one of the most beautiful cakes they had ever seen. For weeks after our wedding, our guests were raving about how good the food was and were amazed by the selection of the food at the cocktail hour. If we could do it all over again we would have our wedding here with out a doubt!
