  • I loved my wedding, and can't argue with how gorgeous & special the venue is. That's why we chose it, despite reading differing reviews beforehand. That said, anyone thinking of booking should know that some challenges might come along. Unless your wedding is small, I would highly recommended hiring your own day-of coordinator. PROS: -The Great Hall and gardens are stunningly beautiful -The waitstaff & catering team were rockstars. The food service was seamless, and they set up the dining room beautifully. -Palermo did a great job with the cake and the kitchen staff decorated it perfectly with flowers I had brought -The bridal attendant they provided was very sweet and helpful. CONS: -The venue coordinator quit 2 weeks before our wedding, leaving us with a brand new last-minute coordinator who was not up to speed on our agreement and details for our wedding. -Several things were promised to us before we booked which turned out not to be true. -There seemed to be little t...

  • We were married at Snug Harbor in late September. With late fall as our preferred time of year, a garden setting was the perfect choice for our ceremony. We were married in the Tuscan Garden, hosted cocktails and appetizers in the Tuscan Garden, and partied in the Great Hall. The grounds at Snug Harbor have many great locations for pictures, so (obviously) plan your schedule accordingly! Our guests loved the garden setting and raved about the food. The Great Hall’s 40 ft ceilings and up-lights provided a lovely backdrop and made the hall feel grand. The food was delicious and the choice to make signature cocktails that were representative of our tastes was special and our guests loved those as well. For NYC, the setting and value were perfect for our budget. The staff was great at helping us plan our day and execute the many details planned for a perfect night. In all, it was a magical day that many of our guests are still talking about!

  • We had the best wedding experience at Snug Harbor in early September. When we visited, we were blown away by how beautiful and affordable the venue was. There were many different great options for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception spaces and they were flexible about letting us choose which we preferred. Terra was very responsive and we worked with her closely leading up to the wedding. We were the only wedding at Snug Harbor for our date, so we were able to do the ceremony in the Tuscan Garden, the cocktail hour at the Chinese Scholar’s Garden, and after a last-minute hurricane warning, we switched the reception from the Tented Pavilion to the Great Hall. Each space was perfect and got rave reviews from our guests (particularly the Chinese Scholar’s Garden). The staff was efficient and friendly throughout and Jessica took incredible care of the bride. The food was excellent and the whole evening ran smoothly. We had the best day of our lives and we would highly recommend Snug ... Read more

  • My husband and I recently had our wedding at Snug Harbor and we absolutely loved the venue and overall service. Snug Harbor to me is a hidden gem of Staten Island. I love the peaceful feel I get from when I enter the premises. Between the beautiful gardens, spacious areas for celebrations and the price, I think Snug Harbor is the perfect place for anyone to hold a celebration. The staff was helpful and friendly, taking care of our needs every step of the way. I would like to give a special thanks though to Snug Harbor 's Senior Event Designer, Terra Hudson for helping us from beginning to end. She was exceptional and thanks to her, we had the wedding of our dreams.

  • Snug harbor was the perfect venue for our wedding. The historic architecture and the natural beauty of the botanical gardens were a lovely and unique setting for our big day. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour in the Chinese Scholar's Garden, and reception in the Great Hall. Terra helped us plan, gave us her professional advice, and was super responsive throughout the process. She was flexible at accommodating our requests which gave our wedding a personal touch. The bridal attendant and maitre d' were also very helpful during the big day. It was simple to build a tasty menu with the variety of food options–plus the wedding cake was included. The location is easily accessible and locals could use a taxi if they prefer.

  • We just had our wedding at the great hall at Snug Harbor. Terra was our planner and she was amazing and so accommodating. We hit a few bumps while planning our wedding and things needed to be changed. However, Terra and Snug Harbor team was very understanding and worked with us throughout the whole process. It's a beautiful place to get married, food is excellent and the STAFF is excellent. They truly made our day so very special. Many thanks to Terra and the staff!

  • We had our wedding at Snug harbor in May and we had SUCH a great experience with everyone here. Our ceremony was in the Tuscan garden, cocktail hour in the Chinese Scholars garden, and reception in the tent. Our planner was Terra and she is so incredibly nice. We came to visit the venue so many times and she was so accommodating. She answered every question we had and even upgraded our ceremony location to the Tuscan garden after finding out we're the only wedding that day. Snug harbor is gorgeous and it's truly a hidden gem. Our guests kept asking us how we found this place because of how beautiful it is. Plus it's so affordable compared to other beautiful venues in NYC. Not to mention the amount of food choices for the price. My bridal attendant (I believe her name is Trisha) was so amazing, always making sure things were going well, making sure we had snacks and drinks in the bridal suite, just doing things out of her way because she felt like it would be convenient for us, includin...

  • My now husband and I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Snug Harbor. We had the ceremony in the Tuscan Garden and the reception in the Tented Pavilion. All our guests were raving about the stunning venue. They could not believe we were on Staten Island. Terra and her team were extremely professional. We are so grateful to her and her entire team. They made the day stress free! Terra coordinated seamlessly with all of our vendors. We never had to hear a peep! As usual, as the bride I didn't really eat much- but what I did get was delicious! Our guests raved about the food. We have an extended cocktail reception. The guests loved all the station options- especially the Asian stir fry! So if you are looking for a beautiful venue, with an experienced staff and great food options look no further than Snug Harbor!

  • We just had our wedding at Celebrate at Snug Harbor this past Saturday, 12/12. Our ceremony and reception were in the Upper Great Hall and the cocktail hour was in the Lower Great Hall. While we were looking at possible wedding venues, I already knew that I loved the photos of the Upper Great Hall. When we saw the space in person, we fell in love with it. The architecture is breathtaking. And though our wedding was in December, the beautiful grounds of Snug Harbor added to its appeal. It feels like you are not really in Staten Island, that it's kind of its own little world. As Staten Island residents, we love that we have memories at Snug Harbor and can keep visiting for years to come. Celebrate at Snug Harbor was towards the higher end of our budget and we did not want a large wedding, but the winter prices and minimum guarantees are slightly lower than peak season, so we were able to make it work. In the end, it was well worth what we spent. Terra Hudson was our contact, ... Read more

  • We had an Indian-Chinese wedding in September 2015 at Snug Harbor. We had our ceremony in the Tuscan Garden, our cocktail hour in the Chinese Scholar Garden and our reception in the tented pavilion. It was the best day of our lives and Celebrate at Snug Harbor definitely contributed to the perfection of the day. We were initially hesitant to use Snug Harbor because of mixed reviews, however we LOVED the look and feel of the venue...when we met with Terra Hudson (our contact there) she quickly was able to address all our concerns and as it turns out had been brought in to deal with some of the issues that had previously been brought up in past reviews. From our first meeting with Terra to our wedding day, she was professional, punctual and kept us up to date with everything. Our wedding day turned out to be the same day as the Autumn Moon Festival and anticipating the crowds, Terra was quick to offer that we move our ceremony to the Tuscan Garden from the White Garden at no cost.

  • Snug harbor was the most perfect venue for our wedding! It was an absolutely gorgeous setting- set amid gardens and easily accessible from NYC. We saw about 15 different venues before we fell in love with snug. It's distinct feel and unique setup really set it above the rest. Additionally, it was important for us to have most things included within the venue (ex: catering and ceremony location). We got married on Labor Day weekend in the Tuscan garden, had cocktail hour out there and then the reception in the Great Hall. We took pictures on the grounds prior to the ceremony. I truly believe this is the most hidden gem of a venue in New York and would recommend it to anyone. While we live in Manhattan, having our guests take the ferry over made for a fun experience (especially for out of towners). A good deal of our guests drove as well, which worked out great. We were quite worried based on some of the other reviews but Landmark turned this place around and eased any conc... Read more

  • My wedding would not have been the same amazing experience without Snug Harbor. Terra and her team run a tight ship here. I had people asking during my wedding if I had hired a wedding planner - nope, just Terra. And she comes with the venue! 1. The venue could not be more gorgeous. I did not want a gaudy typical wedding venue with tacky statues and fountains...I also didn't want to get married in an industrial cold and modern warehouse in Brooklyn. Those seemed to be the only types of options in the NY-NJ area. For smaller weddings, you can choose the White Garden/Chinese Garden/Tented Pavilion option. Or, for indoor ceremonies, the Art Gallery. For larger weddings, you can choose the Great Hall/Tuscan Garden. All are beautiful. Here are a few photos: http://sarahkinslow.com/blog/2016/6/28/gingelalltheway. 2. It was the best spend of my entire wedding budget. No, this is not a "budget" wedding, but compared to other venues in the area this is a steal. Keep in mind, with Snug H... Read more

  • I read many mixed reviews of Snug Harbor early in our wedding planning process, so I was skeptical to commit to the venue. My husband and I couldn't be happier that we did, though. We were captivated by the Great Hall on our first visit, and really couldn't imagine our wedding anywhere else after seeing the space. We worked with Terra throughout the process, and while there were certainly little things that frustrated me -- like typos in the contract -- it was all minor in the grand scheme of things. The reception food options were delicious and the cocktail hour food was overabundant. The bridal suite was also the perfect place for my bridesmaids and me to get ready on the big day. We had our ceremony in front of about 150 people in the Great Hall before going downstairs to cocktail hour. We then returned upstairs for the reception, and the space had been flipped impeccably. The grounds made for a beautiful backdrop for photos, and even though it was a brisk November day, everythin... Read more
