The Links at Union Vale
Teri and Doreen did a wonderful job! Teri was amazing with the organization of the wedding, weather was questionable and she had a well thought out plan for every scenario. She was extremely accomodating and very thorough. Doreen, the Maitre D' was also a pleasure, she made sure everything happened perfectly on the day of the wedding. They made me feel comfortable and confident throughout the whole process.
My husband and I had a fantastic experience for our wedding at The Links at Union Vale. Teri, Doreen and the staff were professional, attentive and made our afternoon run very smoothly. The venue was amazing - we were able to take pictures on the beautiful golf course and enjoy a fabulous sunset throughout the reception, and the newly re-done outdoor patio worked out great for the cocktail hour. We highly recommend the Links as a great wedding venue!
I wish I could give them 10 stars! Our wedding was amazing, despite it being cold and rainy. Teri was wonderful to work with. We had so many little details and changes, there are probably 100 emails back and forth with her. She made some incredible accommodations to keep our guests out of the bad weather. The food was fabulous; several of our guests commented that it was the best filet mignon they'd ever had. The whole evening went so smoothly (at least as far as I know!) even with some last minute guest/meal changes. I can't rave enough about how professional and smooth working with them was. I wouldn't have done a single thing differently!
The trumpets announced our arrival....the large wooden doors swung open with the grace of a ballerina. the carpet, deep red in color seemed to appear from out of no where. At our feet lay rose peddles from the far corners of the world. From off in the distance beams of pure white light lit up the night sky as if an approval from above..........
No....none of this really happened but the staff at the links made us feel like it did. We seriously can not thank both Teri and Doreen enough for all their hard work. The entire staff at The Links were some of the nicest people we have ever met. They went above and beyond to make sure our day was special. Everyone we dealt with made us feel like they were there to help. The food was just great. All we can say is you will not be disappointed having your wedding at The Links.
At the recommendation of Teri (who one can say acted as a wedding planner) we used Enriquez Entertainment for our DJ, Lavender and Leaf as the florist and Ron from True Life Fotos. ALL were SPECTACULAR.
My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Links this past August. We could not have been happier with our reception!! The Links surpassed our expectations in every way possible. Every part of our reception went flawlessly, and we received numerous compliments from our guests on the food, staff, gorgeous views, and the overall experience. Terri was a pleasure to work with, and always answers my emails/phone calls very quickly. I loved that they only hold one event per day - it really allows the staff to completely focus on your event, and the attention to detail is just exceptional. To top it off, I found this venue to be one of the most reasonably priced in the Hudson Valley. I loved every second of our wedding reception, and am so happy that we chose to have it at The Links. I would enthusiastically recommend this venue to anyone in the Hudson Valley.
I had The BEST experience planning my wedding at The Links. Teri and her whole staff were so helpful in every single way. Every single guest came to us and spoke so highly of everything from the ceremony, the food, the music (DJ Danielle). Every single part of my wedding was beautifully executed. Everyone was saying how calm I was on that day and honestly that was because I had spoken so much to Teri that I knew she had it all under control . I trusted her completely and she and her staff made our day better then we even expected.
I had my wedding at The Links at Unionvale this June and they are absolutely amazing. My wedding was filmed for the TV show Four Weddings on TLC, and they were so helpful in helping me make sure all of my details were perfect! Terri and Doreen were amazing to work with and I would recommend them to all of the future brides out there! This venue is by far the best wedding location in Dutchess County. The food is great, the desserts are AMAZING (TRY OUT THE ICE CREAM SUNDAE BAR), the view during the ceremony is phenomenal, and the servers are fantastic. I did not have to get up from my seat not one time to get a drink or anything. Thank you so much Terri for everything, you are all amazing!
I had my wedding in an October blizzard. Teri and everyone at the links did an amazing job, you would not have known we were on generator, or that they were half staffed. My guest were never without anything, I always had someone ask me if I needed anything and it was there instantly. Teri and her staff were nothing short of angels even allowing my photographer to spend the night when all the roads were closed and she could not get home. I can not say enough about the service I received from the Links I would absolutely recommend this venue, they treat you and your day as it were there own .
The BEST place to have a wedding in the Hudson Valley! The atmosphere and views are amazing. The food is to die for and Teri is wonderful! She made our day and the days leading up to the wedding relaxing and worry-free.
Teri and Doreen, we can't thank you enough for the outstanding professionalism and service you provided us on our daughter's wedding day. Everything was perfect, right down to the very last detail. You put our minds at ease, allowing us to just enjoy a day we'll always remember.
I couldn't have been happier with the service and treatment we received at The Links. It's a wonderful place to be married. Beautiful surroundings, attentive staff. Your event is the only one taking place there that day so you are their main focus. Just wish I had more time to enjoy it, the day went by so fast!
Highly recommend The Links for your wedding!
I can't say enough about the Links at Union Vale. Teri and her team made my day amazing.
My husband and I got married at The Links on 10-16-10.
After getting engaged we visited multiple Hudson Valley wedding venues looking for an outdoor setting for our ceremony and a lovely indoor reception venue. The Links was the only venue where we found these things and did not feel like we were just another wedding to get in and out the door. The staff and location felt personal and the package offerings were well priced and designed with the guests as well as the wedding party in mind. The food and drink included in the package price was of excellent quality and presentation. We were able to go to bridal shows at the links and taste most of the food that we had to select from for our cocktail hour and reception. We were also able to attend the Links for private tastings during other weddings, where we were able to meet with the wonderful chef and get his personal recommendations for the menu.
During the months approaching our wedding Teri, Bridgette and Doreen were ALWAYS available by phone or in person for any questions we had. They were very flexible for the DIY bride such as myself. We were so happy with the Links in the months approaching our wedding that we decided to have our rehearsal dinner there as well. The days before the wedding I was able to drop off my centerpieces, decorations, favors, bathroom baskets etc and all of these things were perfectly arranged for us the day of the wedding without extra charges or hidden fees, we did not have to worry about ANYTHING!
The day of our wedding, the weather was questionable..... cold, windy and a high chance of rain. The ceremony was set up on the covered patio instead of on the lawn..... 45 minutes before the start of the ceremony the sky cleared without a cloud, the wind stopped and the sun was shining. Teri, Doreen and all of the links staff - even the cooks! were out moving chairs, flowers, ribbons and decorations out on to the lawn so that we could have our dream setting!
The cocktail hour and reception were perfect, seamless and FUN! Doreen, Teri and the staff were so organized. The food was great! It came out hot, on time and our guests LOVED it! The pastry garden cake included in our package was to die for. We wish we could do our wedding day all over again - and my husband and I would not change a thing.
My husband and I got married at The Links on September 18, 2010. I can not say enough about how wonderful it was to work with The Links. The banquet manager, Teri Stellato was a dream to work with. She made the entire process smooth, easy and enjoyable. There are several great things about the Links but to name a few: they only do one wedding per day, the food was delicious, the staff was professional and courteous, they were extremely flexible and everything ran like clock work on the day of my wedding. Many of my guests that I have spoken to since the wedding raved about The Links. You will not be disappointed if you choose to get married here!
• We loved the Links at Union Vale and would recommend it to any bride and groom! Teri, Doreen, and the entire team at the Links took great care of us from day one. The Links was the first phone call I made as a clueless and terrified bride-to-be! Teri talked me through everything that I needed to know to set up my first visit. The Links was also very flexible with package options to accommodate our budget. The food and staff were awesome. Because we were the only wedding that day we have the flexibility of choosing our own start and end time. But, the thing that I thought they did the best was allow us to personalize our wedding. We weren’t just another cookie-cutter wedding. They let us add personal touches throughout the day including things that resulted in extra work for their staff (like setting up a candy bar) and they did it all – with a smile and without any additional fees! Can’t beat that!!
We had our afternoon wedding at The Links at Union Vale with our ceremony overlooking the golf course and an old barn. The location was beautiful, you can only see fields and more fields from the reception room. Lots of windows meant we had lots of daylight during the reception and our reception photos came out great!
Teri Stalleto is the woman who we visited each time we came to The Links before the wedding, but not the woman who managed our event on the day of. You would never have known. The transfer from Teri to the other woman was seamless. Everyone knew what was going on. The vendors all worked together and coordinated with each other. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. The servers made sure to ask the bridal party often if they could get us anything. The day went so smoothly.
We were very happy with the service and the food. We got a lot of comments about how the food was better than you usually get at a wedding. The Links works with The Pastry Garden for the cakes, and that all went very well as well.
We had gotten a special package for having more than 100 people on a Sunday and it was a good value, but when our 130 rsvps came in, we only had 89. We were very impressed with Teri. She let us keep the special price and did not charge us for the extra 11 people. We did not have to fight her over it. It was not an issue.
We found Teri to be very accommodating in other ways as well. Our photographer had this idea for us to have our send off in a golf cart, and Teri made sure there was a cart waiting for us at the end of the day. It was a lot of fun.
We had a great time at our wedding at The Links. We highly recommend the location, Teri, and our manager.
We had the best and most memorable experience at The Links. Teri is the easiest vendor I worked with...she always made us feel like we were the number one priority and was flexible in areas that she could be as well as helpful in her suggestions. looking back, I can't imagine having our wedding any place else!
I cant even put into words how wonderful my whole experience with The Links was!!! Since the moment I walked in to view the hall and meet Teri the coordinator, I knew that I was going to have my wedding there. Teri was so responsive to my calls and e-mails and really went above and beyond to make my reception perfect. Planning my wedding there was such a great experience. The day of, I didnt have to worry about anything everything was set up exactly as I wanted and even some extras were thrown in. The food was spectacular and so was the service. I think just about every one of our guests came up to us and complimented us on the food and service!
What I liked: Beautiful setting for outdoor ceremony, great ballroom, bridal suite, newer bldg, clean, up-to-date, $80pp includes cocktail hour, 5 hr reception with house brand open bar, wedding cake from Pastry Garden, only one wedding per day. The food is very good, not 5 star but much better than most wedding food I have had. I would go eat there in the restaurant. Value for the price is excellent for the Hudson Valley/close to Westchester/NYC area. The waitstaff was excellent. My guests never went thirsty.
What I didn't like: There are golfers on the property & clubhouse (not ballroom area) during weddings but they were no bother at all to me- I just thought some brides might not like that so I should mention it. I found the banquet manager to be inflexible, cold unwilling to work with me at times. It kind of ruined that part of the experience for me and almost made me want to go elsewhere. The Maitre de was okay, though a little pushy at times. We specifically asked that the bridal party be catered to, as they are often pulled aside for the cocktail hour for photos and forgotten- we were assured we have 1-2 people assigned to us and we got nothing! There was a small buffet in the bridal suite but we couldn't get there! I had to recruit guests to go get us food & drinks- not good!
Pricing breakdown: $80pp house liquor or $89pp top shelf. $5pp ceremony fee if on-site. Add 18% service charge and NY tax at 8.125%. Everything is subject to tax and servic charge. Chair covers are a must (ugly chairs) -they charge $6.50/chair or you can get your own & they charge $1.50/chair to put them on. I went on eBay, bought brand new for $3/chair incl. shipping and sold them when done to recoop costs.
Overall, the value for the money is great. I just wish the higher staff were more pleasant and accomodating.
My experience with the links was great. I booked our event a little over a year in advance, and was able to lock the $89/pp rate. I was planning my wedding from both abroad and Buffalo, NY, and they were very good with replying to my emails and phone calls. I meet with them a few times to discuss the ceremony, food, cake and decorations. Because I was coming from so far away they would work around my schedule. So I actually met with them on a early Sunday morning.
I liked... the fact that one price included everything (food, drinks, cake, linens, cocktail hour; no extra fees, only tax and gratuities). We loved the fact that we were able to have Peruvian/Dominican food. During the big day we had one waitress taking care of us, and she was great. Always on top of what we needed, specially our drinks. Also we had a signature drink, mango cosmo, loved it! Our ceremony was outdoors and it was amazing (yes there were a few golfers around, but most of them stayed away once the ceremony started). They were very flexible when it came down about decorations, they offered to provide us with chair covers for an extra fee but were perfectly fine when we brought our own (which was much cheaper). I was happy to see that they took care of every detail in the tables (favors, special linens we provided, bells, names, etc) and did not have a problem when my friends arrived extra early to decorate the room. And I have to say I loved my cake.
Honestly I don't think there was one thing I disliked. It is true that during the reception their restaurant was open (which was at the other side of the building), but never saw any of their customers come over to our side.
Teri, Doreen, and the rest of the fantastic staff at The Links at Union Vale are true wedding professionals and great friends. Their attention to detail, quality, and customer service is outstanding. They treat every wedding they host as if it were their own. Highly recommended! -- DJ Bri Swatek
