The View On The Hudson was the greatest wedding venue from start to finish. Howard was professional and work so hard to make our day perfect. He catered not only to myself and the groom but also our parents and the whole bridal party. He worked with us during the months prior to our wedding to create the perfect day that fit everything we wanted, from the ceremony, presentation, food, music and the entire flow of the night. He made sure me and the groom ate and even brought food up to the bridal suite for me to eat while bustling my dress before the reception. The ceremony was beautiful outside and perfect for photos. I cannot thank Howard enough for all he did the months leading up to and the day of our wedding. It was a perfect day.

Our wedding was here on June 22, 2014. We got an amazing deal for a Sunday wedding. Howard made our day extremely special. From day one, he was extremely accommodating. He kept telling us, you...worry about the small stuff...and leave the hard stuff to us. We did exact that!! The view from the cocktail area, the ballroom and ceremony area were exquisite. If your looking for a venue that gives it's all, amazing food, and right on the water....this is your place!! Howard made sure we were having a great time, and he also made sure we made time to eat ourselves. God knows, bride and grooms never eat...but luckily we got to. Haha. Our family was taken care of as well. Everything went amazing, and more!!

We had a great wedding at the view on the Hudson. By that I have not one single complaint about this venue. We worked with Ralph and he made sure that our wedding was everything that we wanted and more. We had our ceremony at The View on the Hudson. We had it outside and the backdrop was nothing less than magical. Ralph made sure that it ran perfectly and seamlessly. Move ahead to the cocktail hour and the food was amazing they have numerous stations to chose from, and in their standard package you pick four. The food was plentiful and delicious. The drinks were flowing getting everyone primed up for the party. Ralph and his staff were compleat professionals through out the night. The food was amazing, did not hear one single complaint, but received many comments on how good the food was. Ralph was very easy to deal with and made sure that every request that we had was met and that there very no snafus though out the night. He was extremely flexible with us the week of the wedding as far as people canceling on us and then people coming last minute that changed their mind. He is a professional and I would highly recommend requesting him as your matre de. Nothing and I mean nothing went wrong at our wedding, and it was the day that my wife had been dreaming about her whole life, and that had a lot to do with Ralph and his staff.

The View on the Hudson was a terrific venue to get married. Being an event planner myself, I was prepared to have to do all of the work for the wedding, but the true professionalism and experience that the staff at the View has truly made my job SO much easier! The food was spectacular, the view of the Hudson river/ bridge was breathtaking, (even in the rain!) and the staff was a pleasure to work with! I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Everything about The View exceeded my expectations. We worked with Howard for well over a year planning our wedding. I made many calls to him throughout asking random questions as they came to me, stopped in to see what our centerpiece would look like on the table and he was helpful and gave advice every step of the way. He worked with us very closely and the food and drinks that we wanted and was reassuring about the entire process. It was very clear that he had been doing this work for a while and knows that he is doing! I had a last minute small seating arrangement change, but it didn't seem to bother Howard. He went through the set up without a hitch. We arrived to the venue earlier for pictures and for me to get dressed and when I got there he brought us champagne and food! For that matter, there was not a time when I didn't have a fresh drink at my table or food at my hands. Howard made a point that my husband and I eat - and we did! I would definitely work with Howard and The View again!

My husband and I were married in September and after our initial venue did not work out, we switched to the view with only 6 months until our wedding. When we walked in, we first worked with Howard and to be quite honest, we decided that as much as we LOVED the place and were willing to spend a little bit more on our wedding to have the venue, the service we would be contracted into with this gentleman was not what I wanted to deal with. We had called up and spoken with Ralph and expressed how we were torn and he brought us back in to give them a second chance. Ralph sold me! He had a great personality, very knowledgeable and professional! Ralph was sympathetic, and really envisioned what I did. at the end of the day our wedding was absolutely PERFECT! Even our guests were pleased with him, they noticed his tentitiveness to guests as well as us. He ensured that the groom and I ate, and at one point even came to our table and forced us to sit and eat for a few minutes before he left. Our day was absolutely flawless once we entered The View and it was all thanks to a wonderful staff! Theresa our main waitress was amazing as well too! the bar tenders and waitstaff really made everyone feel like they were important and tended to their every need. When all is said and done I would not have changed anything about our reception.. except making it longer because it was so great! Ralph and all of our vendors worked together seamlessly and people are still talking about how wonderful our day was!

My husband and I had our ceremony (outdoors) and reception at the View on the Hudson. We worked closely with Howard Vaz whose careful attention to detail ensured that we had a beautiful and truly memorable wedding. Howard knew that we wanted an outdoor wedding overlooking the Hudson River, but there was rain in the forecast for that weekend. He and his staff monitored the weather reports and decided that we could pull it off. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony and then headed indoors for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. The rain came down an hour later while we were safely indoors! Howard accommodated our request for an outside caterer to provide some Nigerian dishes during the cocktail hour and his quick-thinking saved the day when the caterer showed up an hour-and-a-half late (well past the cocktail hour). He served the Nigerian food to each table as an additional food option during the luncheon and most guests thought that this was our original intention! Howard has a no-nonsense approach to wedding planning that might take some getting used to but the results more than speak for themselves. I would use him again in a heartbeat. We were so happy with the outcome that we visited him a week after our wedding just to say "thank you!" I would highly recommend the View on the Hudson to any couple thinking of getting married in the greater New York area.

Everything about The View exceeded mine, my new husband and my mother's expectations. Working with Ralph the entire process (about a year and a half) was so easy and he made us feel comfortable the whole way through. His patience and attentiveness during the process and especially the day of was impeccable. He made sure me and my hubby were taken care of the ENTIRE night. Meaning I always had a fresh drink at the table and food in my hand. Of course they tell you the night goes by so quickly and in a blur (which it does) but what stands out was Ralph's and the entire team at the View's professionalism.

So many things I can talk about. The space is beautiful. I recommend using for your ceremony because the river/mountain back drop is amazing. Howard made sure everything was taken care of and ran things very smoothly on the wedding day. He is great to work with and helped us every step of the way. Food was great. Cocktail hour has a great variety and they give you good options for stations. I recommend mash potato bar. Dinner was also great. Best bridal suite I have seen.

I would have not changed a thing. Loved every moment of the wedding

We had a beautiful and magical wedding at The View (June 30, 2013). Howard Vaz, our wedding planner and maitre'd, couldn't have been more accomodating. We wanted an outdoor ceremony by the Hudson River, and although there was a strong chance of rain, Howard had the ceremony set up outdoors the morning of the event, and told us his staff would move all of the chairs in quickly if the weather took a turn for the worse. We managed to have a picture perfect ceremony minutes before a torrential downpour occurred. The cocktail hour and reception were perfectly planned and organized, with great attention to detail, and the guests loved the food. Thanks very much.

I cannot express how incredible the The View on the Hudson was for my wedding. Howard, specifically went above and beyond for me and my entire family, i'm sure to Howard it was all in a days work as he has been doing this forever but it SHOWS. I had not ONE bit of wedding stress nor did I question ANYTHING in any of our meetings, Howard had me so calm that I just knew it would all be taken care of down to what i'm using for our Gifts and envelopes. Not only did Howard make special dinners for my husband and father, the food there was A=MAZING and did not stop. After the cocktail hour people were rubbing their bellies with giant smiles on their faces....THEN the apps, and salad and main course aaaaaaaaand dessert. The venue was beautiful. As simple or extravagant as you want it to be. The View was breathtaking...I have ZERO complaints only that the night ended. I hope to be back to the view as an invited guest to a wedding ASAP so I get to see from the OTHER END all the amazing things all my friends and family raved about!!!! THANK YOU HOWARD!!!!

I had my wedding at The View on the Hudson this past Sunday. They put on a beautiful wedding and their venue has a gorgeous view of the Hudson river. Ralph was our Maitre’D. He has a ton of experience with planning weddings and everything went off without a hitch. We also hired a day-of coordinator, but that was a pretty redundant service because Ralph really had everything under control. The food was excellent and there was a ton of it. I especially liked the wedding cake and baked apple dessert. I have rarely eaten wedding cakes that taste so moist and good. I imagine that this venue is optimal for couples who want a very well run event at an all-inclusive venue, rather than DIYers. Also, I think that the venue is better for people who want to do minimal planning, because Ralph and his staff have a certain rhythm and process they follow based on their experience of what works well. There were a couple of very minor requests I made, which slipped through the cracks, and it would have been more convenient if we could have done more of the communications by email, but all in all, Ralph and The View did an amazing job!

I had my wedding at The View on the Hudson this past Sunday. They put on a beautiful wedding and their venue has a gorgeous view of the Hudson river. Ralph was our Maitre’D. He has a ton of experience with planning weddings and everything went off without a hitch. We also hired a day-of coordinator, but that was a pretty redundant service because Ralph really had everything under control. The food was excellent and there was a ton of it. I especially liked the wedding cake and baked apple dessert. I have rarely eaten wedding cakes that taste so moist and good. I imagine that this venue is optimal for couples who want a very well run event at an all-inclusive venue, rather than DIYers.

I want everyone to know about this place. Soup to nuts, it was perfect. From the initial planning to the night of. Howard was our "GM" and took care of everything. Don't let him frustrate you, he definitely knows what he is doing. We all have "visions", just like we did, of what the night should be like, Howard will ask why certain things are wanted and be very frank with you. He puts the couple ahead of the Venue.

The week of, Howard was very stern about bringing everything over early. "You are not to worry about anything here, I will worry about it", and he was a man of his word. The food was top notch and abundant. I had guests complaining that they couldn't get drunk because there was so much food. The venue has an awesome view of the Tappan Zee Bridge, unfortunately we picked a date that Irene visited. Due to weather we had to get married inside, people did not even blink. And the acoustic for a band was awesome.

That night, Howard and his manager were catering to everything. They really know how to run a show. I needed a drink he was there. After the ceremony and pictures he made sure we were eating.

The venue itself is a domed pavilion with a side room for cocktail hour and an open bar area. Some people may think the decor is outdated but I thought it was dated far back enough to add its own uniqueness to it, all personal preference.

The website does not give this place justice. Before you cross this place off the list you have to see it in person, it is located in a cute town with hotels only 8 minutes away.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you View on the Hudson

Having our reception at the View on the Hudson was like the fairy-tale ending to a perfect day. The venue was beautiful, the "view", of course, spectacular, food fantastic, and service - impeccable.

Howard Vas ran our affair and no stone was left unturned. We never had to ask for anything - everything was done and it was done correctly.

I would highly recommend this venue to anyone and would book them again immediately.

Everything was great here for my wedding in April 2011. The only thing I'd do differently is ask for a bar setup instead the reception room because too many guests were stationed at the bar, not on the dance floor (too far away). Views are lovely and Howard Vaz was amazing! He ran the whole show flawlessly.

The View highly exceeded my expectations and made our wedding day magical!

My best friend had been married at the View six years ago. I remember thinking the venue was beautiful, the view was amazing and the idea of only having ONE wedding at a time -- something rare to find in the tri-state area.

When it came time for my special day I was blown away by the level of service. Ralph helped us along the way and made us feel that any question or request was never to silly. My guests have raved about the food and level of service to this day. And my husband and I are still glowing from the warm reception we had.

We were married in March 2009. It was a day wedding and everything was amazing. We worked with Ralph and he took care of everything. The room was set up perfectly and their food options were very good. They provide a perfect cake so you do not need to spend more money. They basically ran the wedding, which was great since we did the wedding ourselves and could not be everywhere at once. We have only heard wonderful things from our guests. The view is amazing...I am a hudson valley girl, so this was perfect. The View provides guests with champagne and a strawberry, but my husband is allergic to strawberries. They substituted raspberries instead...that is how attentive they are.

We had our ceremony & reception at The View and I could not have been happier. Our outdoor ceremony was perfect. It’s not a huge set-up, but for our 155 guest list, it worked out great. I loved having the place to ourselves for the night.

Our guests raved about the food and we actually got to eat! My one concern before the wedding was that the bar set-up would take people away from the action, but the wait staff kept my guest’s drinks full without even having to leave the ballroom! The whole flow of the night exceeded my expectations.

I could call anytime with a question. Whether it was Howard, Ralph or the receptionist who answered the phone, anything I need was solved quickly. The night of the wedding, they took care of everyone. Ralph runs a tight ship and I had complete confidence in him. He even helped bustle my dress!

If you’re looking for a reasonable venue, gorgeous views and great staff, I would certainly recommend The View!

Our daughter and son in law's wedding was held at The View on the Hudson on Labor Day weekend. We were extremely pleased with so many aspects of the wedding. From the onset, Ralph, our catering sales manager and Maitre'd, was caring, helpful, and very pleasant to work with. He helped make the day run so smoothly including even helping with the bustle on our daughter's gown. The service on the day of the wedding was outstanding with the staff being very responsive to everyone's needs. The food was good especially during the cocktail hour. And of course the view was outstanding during the ceremony outside and the party inside later on.

I would highly recommend The View to brides in the NY/NJ/Hudson Valley area. The setting is beautiful and all-in-one -- you have the comfort and convenience of a ballroom and full-service facility, but the gorgeous river views are right outside to enjoy throughout. The food is delicious, and there is tons of it included in the base price -- an insane amount of passed hors d'oeuvres and appetizer stations at cocktail hour long before the sit-down dinner. Ralph was out maitre'd and he was incredible. So attentive the whole evening to us and our 200+ guests.

I think The View is usually a good venue, unfortunately the sprinklers went off during my outdoor ceremony and many of my guests got wet. I am assuming this is not something that usually happens, hopefully it was some sort of accident.... The View itself is a very beautiful location and their service seems very good for the most part. If the sprinkler incident did not happen I would have given a much higher rating.

Let me start off by saying that we had a wonderful reception- the room was set up wonderfully, the band was rocking, and everyone had a good time. If we had to do it again, we'd still have the reception at the View on the Hudson.

However, I can't write a review of this place without mentioning that we did not enjoy dealing with Howard, one of the reception planners at The View. From the first day, we found him to be incredibly smarmy, arrogant and someone who wants to do things HIS way. At several points when trying to plan for when to do certain things (when to have the toasts, father/daughter dance, etc.) we asked what he was planning in terms of the general timeline of the day (when food would be served, when he'd bring the cake out, etc.). He kept telling us that he didn't have a general timeline and it was based on how many people would be there and how things were going during the event. I'll come back to this later.

Throughout the planning process, we were excited about the reception location, but not about dealing with Howard. We found out quickly that you need to put your foot down when there is something that's important to you, because Howard will try to wine and dine you and then try to do things his own way. Don't be surprised if at the first meeting, he is throwing thank you notes from previous couples in your face trying to convince you that people think he is great. He is not.

A few negatives about how Howard ran the reception. The reception was from 6:30-11:30 and come 9:30 I was starting to get hungry and was wondering when the entree would be served. Howard didn't have the kitchen bring out the food until 10:30 after which the toasts had been given, the band had taken its break and were back out playing again, and people were once again hitting the dance floor. Going back to my previous point about Howard's not being clear about when he was planning to do things, the band was playing loud and upbeat music during dinner when we hoped that during that time it would be softer DJ music so that people could eat and talk to each other. This wasn't the band's fault at all- they were awesome and had taken their break around 9:30 or so.

The cake cutting occurred a little bit before 11pm. Howard wheeled the cake out himself into the middle of the dance floor and my wife and I took our places. With knife in hand, we got ready to cut the cake when Howard suddenly told us that we were not to cut the cake ourselves- that we were just to pose for the photographer and then he would cut the cake himself. "So, we can't cut our own cake?", my wife asked.

Everyone was enjoying themselves on the dance floor as we were getting close to 11:30. Then I (and pretty much everyone else) noticed Howard walking up to the band. At 11:29, he was in their ear telling them to stop playing. I understand our event was from 6:30-11:30, but Howard made himself VERY visible and it was enough to annoy me during the reception. Luckily we had a really cool band who basically ignored him and played for another 15-20 minutes and ended the night on a high note.

So, in conclusion, I first have to say that we had an awesome reception thanks to a great room, an amazing band and photographer, and wonderful family and friends who came from all over to join us for a special weekend. If I could go back and do it again, I would not hesitate to book the View on the Hudson again. However, I would make absolutely certain not to work with Howard. When you're in the high stress situation of planning a wedding, you need someone with a good personality, who's down to earth and you can joke around with a little bit and make sure you're in good hands. That is the complete opposite of what you'll get with Howard. Howard frames himself as the consummate professional ensuring that all the clocks will run on time and that nothing will fall by the wayside. As evidenced by the reception, we found that while most things went according to plan, not everything did. And further, even if they did, that doesn't count for everything- you need to KNOW that you are in good hands by having a down to earth and professional person running the show. I'm sorry to say Howard was neither of these things.

Let me start off by saying that we had a wonderful reception- the room was set up wonderfully, the band was rocking, and everyone had a good time. If we had to do it again, we'd still have the reception at the View on the Hudson.

However, I can't write a review of this place without mentioning that we did not enjoy dealing with Howard, one of the reception planners at The View. From the first day, we found him to be incredibly smarmy, arrogant and someone who wants to do things HIS way. At several points when trying to plan for when to do certain things (when to have the toasts, father/daughter dance, etc.) we asked what he was planning in terms of the general timeline of the day (when food would be served, when he'd bring the cake out, etc.). He kept telling us that he didn't have a general timeline and it was based on how many people would be there and how things were going during the event. I'll come back to this later.

Throughout the planning process, we were excited about the reception location, but not about dealing with Howard. We found out quickly that you need to put your foot down when there is something that's important to you, because Howard will try to wine and dine you and then try to do things his own way. Don't be surprised if at the first meeting, he is throwing thank you notes from previous couples in your face trying to convince you that people think he is great. He is not.

A few negatives about how Howard ran the reception. The reception was from 6:30-11:30 and come 9:30 I was starting to get hungry and was wondering when the entree would be served. Howard didn't have the kitchen bring out the food until 10:30 after which the toasts had been given, the band had taken its break and were back out playing again, and people were once again hitting the dance floor. Going back to my previous point about Howard's not being clear about when he was planning to do things, the band was playing loud and upbeat music during dinner when we hoped that during that time it would be softer DJ music so that people could eat and talk to each other. This wasn't the band's fault at all- they were awesome and had taken their break around 9:30 or so.

The cake cutting occurred a little bit before 11pm. Howard wheeled the cake out himself into the middle of the dance floor and my wife and I took our places. With knife in hand, we got ready to cut the cake when Howard suddenly told us that we were not to cut the cake ourselves- that we were just to pose for the photographer and then he would cut the cake himself. "So, we can't cut our own cake?", my wife asked.

Everyone was enjoying themselves on the dance floor as we were getting close to 11:30. Then I (and pretty much everyone else) noticed Howard walking up to the band. At 11:29, he was in their ear telling them to stop playing. I understand our event was from 6:30-11:30, but Howard made himself VERY visible and it was enough to annoy me during the reception. Luckily we had a really cool band who basically ignored him and played for another 15-20 minutes and ended the night on a high note.
