  • Very rude staff. My fiancée was being helped and then the old lady who appeared to be the manager just kicked us out. Lost our business

  • The Manor did an exceptional job on our special day! Everything went exactly as planned and we had the best time. The food was absolutely delicious and our family and friends could not stop talking about it. The atmosphere was beautiful and the grounds were gorgeous as they gave us amazing backgrounds for many of our wedding pictures. The Manor made our day so very special and we would recommend them to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue for their big day.

  • We looked at several venues but nothing compared to The Manor in terms of packages, value, and beauty! We were married at the Manor on June 7th - we had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception there. The outdoor ceremony space is beyond gorgeous - there really is no comparison. Because it rained the entire week prior, Preston (our sales manager) also reserved a separate indoor room as plan b. Thankfully we didn't need it! All of their rooms are great but we went with the Virginia room which was perfect! The room opens up to a insulated huge patio (for lack of a better word) which is where the cocktail hour was held. All doors open up to the beautiful grounds, seconds from the ceremony location. So, for our guests, everything was located in one area - extremely convenient. And access to outside! Planning with The Manor is very easy - this is their business and they easily lay everything out for you. We worked with Preston to set everything up and Marvin was day-of coordinator. He wa...

  • OMG I have too many great things to say about this place! My wedding went so flawlessly, and everyone was raving about the food and service provided by the Manor. Our cake was AMAZING!!! We chose red velvet with cannoli cream filling and buttercream icing, everyone loved it!!! George (my maitre'd) was excellent, and so was my bridal attendant (never got her name)! You would never think that there were other events going on at the same time with this venue! We worked with Rolf for wedding planning, and he was very attentive and responsive to all the emails and requests I wrote/asked. I wish I could relive the day over and over again! Thank you so much to everyone at The Manor for making our wedding unforgettable!

  • We had our wedding at the Manor on August 15th, 2015 and our guests are still raving about the experience. 5+ stars from top to bottom. This is THE quintessential place to have a classy, modern but not over-the-top wedding and reception. About a year before, we met with Rolf who from the start was phenomenal in every aspect. From swiftly-returned phone calls to extensive conversations (we talked quite a bit as we planned this from out of town) he was absolutely a pleasure to work with! We unfortunately had a very difficult vendor the day of (not affiliated with The Manor whatsoever) and he played a big role in facilitating a smooth day. The staff was incredible, and our Maître D' George was key in making sure the band, the video production people and the kitchen were in-tune. The whole wedding was coordinated like a well-produced show. Because of The Manor's experience and professionalism all we had to do was show up! BTW, we had our reception in the Virginia Room, which we love... Read more

  • I'll keep it short & sweet! The Manor was absolutely terrific, our wedding was in the Virginia room, it was so elegant! I especially love the white chairs! The grounds were perfect! The weather was so nice, we got to have an outdoor bar, which I loved! Our main reason for booking this venue was because of the food, my husband & I went to the Manor years ago while we were dating & the food was just so delicious! Most wedding venues have very generic food that's just okay, but not the Manor! Our guests raved about cocktail hour, some thought it was dinner, even my own Dad! Dinner was great, i tried the chicken & steak, YUM! Our cake was very good, not the typical overly sugary wedding cake. But the best part food wise was the additional package we got, the dessert bar! Oh my goodness, our guests loved it! I was in shock, I couldn't believe the amount of desserts!! The staff was kind, attentive & accommodating. I have nothing but positive things to say! Thank you to all of the... Read more

  • We couldn't be happier on our wedding night. Everybody at The Manor is so kind and helpful. The food was unbelievable. Our guests kept coming to us raving about the quality of the food! They were very responsive from the moment we came to see the venue for the first time to the moment we left. Extremely flexible accommodating every single one of our requests. The staff was extremely helpful and well organized. We have absolutely nothing negative to say about this venue....and we are known for being very picky :). We highly recommend this venue for your wedding!

  • Booking with The Manor has been an easy, enjoyable experience. Our wedding is just about a year a way and everytime we mention where the reception will be we hear nothing but the best comments about The Manor. We're so excited!

  • Excellent excellent excellent. Yes, The Manor does a lot of events and weddings, but it's because they are incredible-- they operate like a well-oiled machine. In planning, they were answering my questions before I even knew that I didn't know something... They are simply wonderful at pulling weddings off. Everything went off without a hitch. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was and how unbelievable the food. Rolph, our Maitre d' was the absolute best (a service included)-- he was so friendly, helpful and supportive. The Manor made our wedding day the absolute best day ever!!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at The Manor at the end of October and it was the most stunning evening. The outdoor ceremony was the most glorious moment of my life (we were extremely lucky with the weather!) and the cocktail hour and reception were wonderful. The rooms we immaculate, the food and drinks outstanding, and the staff perfect. Willimae (Willie) was my bridal attendant and fulfilled and anticipated every need. She was at my side any time I needed her and when I didn't she was the wind, completely out of the way. She was lovely to spend the evening with. Highly recommend this location!

  • I really wanted to get married in a garden and wanted the reception to be in the same place as the ceremony. When I came across the Manor, I immediately fell in love. Because of budget, we had to choose an afternoon wedding but it turned out more perfect than I could have imagined. I loved being able to rest after the wedding and see my guest again at night. The garden was absolutely breathtaking in August when we got married. The arch was covered in beautiful flowers. I've received nothing but compliments about how gorgeous the venue was and amazing the food was. My guest are still raving about it even a month later. I couldn't be more happy that I chose the Manor!

  • My husband and I are so glad we choose The Manor for our venue. We could not be happier with our choice! One of the main reasons why we choose The Manor was because of the beautiful-manicured grounds. There is no place like it! We also loved the elegance and classy feel that the venue has. This place is truly unique and if you want something a little different from the "typical" wedding venue this is your place. We worked with Preston who helped and guided us along. He was very easy going and did not make us feel pressured at any point. George was our Maitre'd and did a wonderful job over seeing the night. The Manor included our cake and did a breath taking job. A few guests told me it was one of the most beautiful cakes they had ever seen. For weeks after our wedding, our guests were raving about how good the food was and were amazed by the selection of the food at the cocktail hour. If we could do it all over again we would have our wedding here with out a doubt!

  • The Manor is such a classy place. The service is excellent, the location is gorgeous, the food is beyond compare! They are very responsive to feedback, which we appreciated. Our initial banquet manager was not very responsive via e-mail, and we let Preston know. He immediately took over our wedding himself and was amazing to work with throughout the process. The Manor also helped us to find our music and flower vendors, which we were so happy with! Our Maitre D, George, really made everything a smooth process on the day of the wedding. And our bridal attendant Isobel, was just perfect! We saw many more expensive venues, and we do not think they come even close to the quality of wedding The Manor puts on.

  • We had both our ceremony and reception at The Manor in June 2015. We are very happy with our decision and would recommend The Manor to others. Ceremony: The ceremony site is beautiful. It's set outside amidst beautifully landscaped grounds. The fresh flowers are impeccable. We had two issues the day of the ceremony. First, the sound system didn't work and we didn't find out about it until minutes before the ceremony. Obviously, we thought that this should have been checked well before the ceremony. Fortunately, the band that we had hired had a speaker that we were able to use. Second, The Manor did not have anyone directing our guests where to go as they arrived. Even with those issues, we absolutely loved the ceremony site and are very happy with our choice. Cocktail Hour/Reception: We reserved the Imperial room, which again, is absolutely beautiful. The cocktail hour was nice, more food than anyone can imagine eating. There were plenty of bars for guests to enjoy cocktails an... Read more

  • A stunningly beautiful place with all the amenities of a catering hall but none of the coldness of one. The place has personality and is memorable. The prices are reasonable, my only complaint was the ceremony charge (too much in my opinion). And they have a good environmental ethic, using a lot of locally grown vegetables, composting leftovers, and recycling. I found some staff members to be a little off-putting, but overall this place is great!
