Emily and the entire staff at the Briarcliff helped to make our wedding a wonderful experience from start to finish. Our wedding had to be pushed back due to COVID & they were accommodating. Communication with staff was excellent. Emily was super helpful with all little details. During the wedding itself, ALL staff were beyond gracious, attentive, and professional. The venue was decorated beautifully – both indoors and outdoors. And the food! We got so many compliments on how excellent the food was, particularly the cocktail hour. I hope someone else I know gets married here so that I can be a guest at the Briarcliff again!


My husband & I got married at The Briarcliff Manor in April and it was absolutely magical! We were planning to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outside, but the staff had to pivot and move everything indoors since it started to rain. During the planning process, Emily, the director of events, was extremely transparent and laid out a plan for the different weather outcomes. So when the day came, we knew exactly what to expect. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and intimate. Emily, Lisa, Perry, and the staff at Briarcliff did an amazing job transitioning the space from the ceremony, to cocktail hour, to the reception. Our guests let us know how seamless it all felt! My husband and I felt so taken care of on our wedding day. Emily made sure that my husband and I took time to be together and be in the moment, which I appreciate so much. She made sure we had time after the ceremony to celebrate in the bridal suite, and then time after cocktail hour to actually sit and enjoy the amazing appetizers we selected. The reception space is beautiful and the staff is so professional. We and our guests felt so taken care of! Apart from the space and staff, the food was absolutely a hit. It was so delicious and really tasted like you were eating at a 5 star restaurant. After dinner was over, we had the biggest dance party. We had 130 guests and the space felt perfect. The dance floor was electric!

If you are considering The Briarcliff Manor as your wedding venue — do it! It was the most magical day and such a beautiful experience. And PLEASE hire Emily as your wedding coordinator and day of coordinator. She made our day so seamless, and we never felt stressed on our wedding day – which is almost unheard of! She is professional, accommodating, responsive, and an absolute pro! And a huge shoutout to Vincenza for safety pinning my bustle to my dress when it kept falling 🙂 Everyone at The Briarcliff Manor is truly exceptional and we are so so grateful for each and every staff member that made our day so special.
