Everyone we met at The Briarcliff Manor was friendly and welcoming. This was the first venue we visited that offered us food and drink during the tour. We felt like everyone truly wanted to take the time to get to know us an make our experience one of a kind!

To the entire team at The Briarcliff Manor-

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the impeccable work you did for our wedding. As you know, leading up to our day we experienced heartbreaking let-downs with the pandemic and losing our original venue. It started to feel like we would never get the day we wanted. From the moment we contacted you for information up until our wedding day, your warmth and professionalism put us at ease. It is clear that you take pride in what you do. From planning with Perry, Emily, and Vincenza, to having amazing support from Dawn and the rest of the team throughout our wedding night, we were floored with your hospitality. I was pleasantly surprised with Jimmy- I did not know we would have someone to attend to us like he did! He kept my champagne flute full all night- no matter where I was! What a star!
I want to acknowledge how much you actually went out of your way for us. You are a group of beautiful wedding saviors. All of you went above and beyond in more ways than one. It is clear that your venue has its own operations that run like a well-oiled machine. Despite the expected and unexpected adjustments, the entire night felt seamless and smooth. Thank you for sticking to our original schedule and accommodating our original vendors. They shared how beautiful your venue is and how great you all are. But most importantly, thank you for the incredibly selfless risk you took to move our wedding back outside after you called it to be indoors- all without my knowing it until way after the fact. All night I kept saying to my wedding party, “Can you believe something actually went right for us!? Can you believe that we actually got our day exactly how we wanted it?!” It wasn’t until I gushed to Kevin at dinner how lucky it was that we just missed the rain when he told me how close we were to experiencing another huge let-down. I had no idea. I was in complete shock of how much work everyone did behind the scenes to make that happen and so subtly that I could enter my ceremony with not one worry on my mind. I can’t believe you moved that archway not once, but twice! I type this with tears in my eyes. With all the disappointments we faced in planning our wedding, to know how closely we dodged another just moments before our ceremony feels like divine intervention and you are our angels.I know you took the risk not just because Kevin or Ruth asked you to, but because you knew how much heartbreak we faced and how much we needed a win. Our ceremony was dreamier than I imagined, thanks to all of you and your investment in our wedding story. There are no words powerful enough to express my gratitude for your dedication to bring our vision to life, despite all odds. It means the world to me and I will remember it every time I look at pictures of our absolutely stunning outdoor ceremony.
On the ride back to the hotel that night, all I could say was how perfect and fun our wedding was. It was more than I ever hoped for. I have never felt so taken-care-of in my entire life. I’ve had happy tears all weekend because I am touched with how kind and genuine you were to us. I know you’ve hosted hundreds of weddings, but you truly made us feel like we were special people to you, not just another event in your books. No money could ever buy the heart and soul you all poured into our day. The mountains you moved to make our day happen will be forever woven into the story of our wedding. Thank you for all that you have done for us, we loved every single moment.
With eternal gratitude,
Katie Pozerski

Dear Mr. & Mrs. DiNapoli, 

I attended the wedding reception of Brian C. & Alyssa M. on Saturday, May 5 as a member of the broom’s family. I just wanted to write a note of appreciation ~ your service staff was excellent. All were kind, courteous, and attentive. I’d like to make a special note of Jimmy ~ he was taking care of our table and never let a glass fo unfilled or a napkin go unfolded. He was a consummate professional. I hope you will let him know his care and attention to detail are things worth writing about! 

Sincerely, Melissa G. (May 2018)

Dear Perry, Vincenza and Emily,

Steve and I want to express our sincere gratitude for your team effort in creating our dream wedding. Each of you brought a unique element in the planning process which contributed to a seamless execution of every component on our most important day.
From the minute we walked in and every subsequent meeting thereafter, we were greeted with warm smiles and were always made to feel welcome.
You provided an elegant and memorable experience for us and all of our guests who have done nothing but rave about how beautiful and amazing that night was. What you and your team are doing at The Briarcliff Manor each and every night is truly special and proves that fairy tale weddings do come true !! 
It was a pleasure working with you through this process and we hope to see you again in the future! 
Wishing you all have a very happy and joyous holiday season!

Mr. & Mrs. Fraioli 
New Mr. & Mrs.

If you are looking for a wedding venue that offers elegance, historic charm, and fine attention to detail, this is your venue! It is a hidden gem in Westchester that has a beautiful view of the Hudson River. We really felt welcomed from the moment we walked in from all of the staff. The owner, Perry and his wife, Vincenza made us feel like family from the moment we met them. They sat down with us and offered us a one on one unique and personalized wedding plan. There were so many things going on when we went in for our wedding consultation; a wedding tasting, setting up for another wedding the next morning and they even had their restaurant Antipasti di Napoli running at the same time. With all of the different things going on in the same space, the whole staff seemed to be moving and working together soo seamlessly. I have never seen anything like this! Great management here. Vincenza, Perry’s wife even offers custom designed decorations and florals for the space! Talk about one-stop shopping!!! The interior decor is simple, modern clean lines, and sophisticated. You can make this venue match any decor that you choose for your wedding.

We would like to express our gratitude to you and your very professional staff for a job well done. The flexibility your staff exhibited accommodating our guests who arrived early was wonderful. Kelly and Jason’s Wedding was absolutely spectacular. We were fortunate enough to have weather that cooperated. The setting was gorgeous and our guests commented on the beautiful scenery overlooking The Hudson River. The cocktail hour was delicious and so well executed. The dinner was superb. Your staff was gracious, courteous and extremely professional. The bar staff was so efficient and friendly. Our guests were always served with a smile. We cannot say enough about your willingness to work with us and make suggestions which enhanced the event. During the whole process, you and your staff were so knowledgeable and helpful. Our journey with The Briarcliff Manor started in June 2015 and culminated on July 16, 2016. It was a spectacular trip. We appreciate your expertise, professionalism, and attention to every detail for our special event. We wish you all the best in the years to come and look forward to seeing you for Christmas Eve dinner.

I had my 30th birthday party at The Briarcliff Manor and it was so much fun! The manor was perfect and exactly what I was looking for! The food was impeccable, all of my guests couldn’t stop talking about how delicious everything was! I would truly recommend the Briarcliff Manor to anyone wanting to hold an event!

What better time of year to say thank you than during the Thanksgiving Week! Fred and I want to thank you for the beautiful job you did to make our Wedding Day at Briarcliff Manor so special. We had a fabulous time and so did everyone else!! The weather was a ten and so was the place!

It was just perfect!! The room itself was set up with a beautiful, romantic decor. I loved the sandalwood tablecloths and lacy overlays;) The outside area was set up for the wedding ceremony with a stunning view overlooking the beautiful Hudson River. We just loved it!! Your “cocktail hour” idea instead of a “formal sit down” dinner worked out great! We are glad we decided to try it!

The selection of delicious food was just right and very yummy! And the staff was wonderful! Working with all of you, Perry, Vincenza, Jamie, and Valerie was easy;)) You were accommodating and helped to make everything run so smoothly! So thank you! You were a pleasure to work with and we thank you for everything you did to make our garden style wedding day so special and elegant!!!

We will definitely recommend your venue to others and you can expect to see us for dinner in the near future!!

Perfect place to hold a party! They hosted my dad’s 100th birthday with pleasant, polite, attentive but never hovering service. They were on top of every detail — and i got the credit! The buffet was delicious. The hors d’oevres and antipasti were excellent. It’s also a beautiful venue with wide lawns and a terrace overlooking the Hudson River…
