The Briarcliff Manor Yard Party
Summer is well on it’s way here and what better way to celebrate special occasions than spending it outside with some picnic themed fun?!
We recently hosted an outdoor rehearsal dinner that really made it feel like summer was already here, with a picnic/outdoor barbecue-style dinner, complete with blue and white checkered linen and matching floral centerpieces.
Rehearsal dinner started with our signature Antipasto display and our outdoor bar set-up. The buffet was complete with all the famous BBQ food, including sliders, corn on the cob, mac and cheese, and clams, to name a few, making it the perfect cookout!
And of course, no yard party is complete without some outdoor games! The lovely couple brought cornhole for their friends and family to enjoy, with pictures of them on the set which gave this fun game a cute and personalized touch.

A Southern Manor in the Hills of Briarcliff
Built in 1902, the Manor was modeled after your classic Southern Mansion, featuring architectural details that boast timeless elegance and a sense of history.
We have recently restored the Manor to her original splendor, merging contemporary elegance with old-world charm while still featuring many famous southern-mansion architectural designs.
The Briarcliff Manor’s exterior, grand in stature, features a symmetrical appearance with stately white columns, a centered entrance, and triangular gables – an ode to America’s passion for architecture that dates back to the Neoclassic, Greek Revival, Federal, and Gregorian style in the earlier part of the 19th century.
The interior, just as grand as it’s exterior, features a cascading double staircase that maintains the theme of symmetry, seven marble fireplaces, and wrought iron doors, spread throughout our two stories.
The Briarcliff Manor – a southern-styled estate in Westchester, New York – is truly one-of-a-kind.

The Scarlett O’Hara Bridal Suite
One of our favorite features of our charming southern-styled manor is our very sweet bridal suite! Named after Gone with the Wind’s protagonist, our Scarlett O’Hara Bridal Suite is sure to make every bride feel pretty in pink on their special day!
The Scarlett O’Hara boasts southern charm with a grand golden-framed mirror, an elegant and ornate fireplace, and a gorgeous oil painting. The suite is accented by gorgeous decor including a white fluffy rug and fun canvas signage!
However, The Scarlett O’Hara’s stand out feature is our vintage pink couch set! Framed in golden finished wood with ornate vintage detailing, and styled with hot pink velvet, our three piece couch set with an additional chair adds an air of both royalty and bridal fun!
Whether you want to have a fun bridal photoshoot, hangout and get ready with your bridesmaids, or just relax before you say “I do,” The Scarlett O’Hara Bridal Suite is the place to be! Even our grooms love The Scarlett O’Hara, some taking the chance for a pink couch photo op of their very own!

Ava + David: The Briarcliff Manor
Wedding season has just begun here at The Briarcliff Manor! We celebrated our first outdoor wedding of the season with lovely Briarcliff Manor Couple, Ava + David, who tied the knot right outside overlooking our breath-taking view of the Hudson Palisades. Ava + David shared countless sweet moments on their big day including the first look, cute candid moments with their family and friends, and some great dance moves. After getting hitched in the beautiful Spring weather, Ava + David, along with their guests, put on their dancing shoes and danced the day away!
