Reviews

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!

The Briarcliff Manor is perfect!! Our reception was everything we wanted and more. Working with Emily was the best and Vincenza’s decor was gorgeous. The food was amazing and the staff was so attentive. My guests couldn’t stop raving about everything! If you’re considering this venue, don’t think twice about it!

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!

Amazing! Simply amazing. We were supposed to have a downpour of rain but were blessed with amazing weather for the cocktail hour! The team at Briarcliff moved our cocktail hour outside seamlessly. The food and service were above and beyond. The Briarcliff Manor was everything I could have hoped my dream wedding venue to be and more.

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

We couldn’t be more thrilled that we picked The Briarcliff Manor for our wedding venue. The place is gorgeous and so well kept! We were planning to have our ceremony and cocktail hour outside but unfortunately it rained. Perry, Emily, and the rest of the staff pivoted quickly and gave us a solid indoor plan, even with a party of 160 people. The reviews we’ve received from our guests have been nothing but raving. The food was incredible and the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating. Best day of our lives. Highly recommend!!

Briarcliff Bride

My wedding at The Briarcliff Manor was an absolute DREAM. We had the added bonus of planning through Covid, but the owner Perry and the venue coordinator Emily were consistent in answering all my bride woes and worries with complete reassurance that everything would go as planned-and it did!! I was a bride who also had a very specific vision and a lot of personal decor that I brought myself for the wedding day, and the staff truly went beyond in setting up everything exactly as I had planned with no hesitation. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the great people who make the magic happen at Briarcliff. All of my guests raved about the beauty of the Manor, how great the food was (which is made to order on the night of the wedding!) and that it was one of the most seamless elegant weddings they’ve been to-a credit I can give wholeheartedly to the venue. Do not hesitate to have your wedding here!!

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.

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 !!

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)

Legendary Venue for Storybook Weddings

I just want to say that choosing the Briarcliff Manor was absolutely the best and most important decision that we made in our wedding planning. We just had our wedding last Saturday, Dec 18th 2021, during the omicron surge. The Briarcliff Manor was flexible with the minimum guest count considering the situation, and our lower guest count coupled with their wonderful room layout and service made our wedding cozy and legendary. We had a picky vision – we wanted our wedding to be classic and intimate yet easy going – for example, my gown was a full blown princess ball gown from Kleinfeld, but we still wanted a less formal vibe for the guests’ comfort. This was only possible because of the great combination of Perry’s family style hospitality, Emily’s steadfast coordination and Jimmy’s professional white glove table service. Every single one of our guests had a smile from ear to ear every moment. The food was worth five times the price. Especially their passed hor d’oeuvres were so delicious. Their entree quality and enormous variety of great desserts were talked about by our guests even days later. We were so concerned waking up on a rainy day for our wedding in December. But the mist outside and the beautiful staircase and lit fireplace inside were more than enough for the magic (and photographs). All the vendors that they recommended were good – particularly our MC, Joe at Big Town Productions was exceptional!! We didn’t prepare wedding favors. But Emily coordinated hundreds of individually wrapped chocolate covered strawberries for us to give out. They were perfectly presented for our guests at the exit, and everyone loved them. Overall, our wedding was beyond our dreams, more perfect than we ever imagined. Just a perfect story book wedding with the Briarcliff Manor family. No other venue could possibly have done better for us.

I am so very happy with the owners, the service, and most especially the food at The Briarcliff Manor! Perry DiNapoli & his staff are amazing, and your guests will be thrilled!
