  • I'm sure every bride has a gut feeling about what place would most suit her and her guests needs on her wedding day. I have to say--I knew from the start that this venue would work for our families. Even without the renovations, the location was just right. Beyond that, the alterations they made only enhanced the property. I worked with Annie who is beyond amazing. She is responsive and thoughtful and a true pleasure to work with. Our wedding was on one of the hottest days of the summer and the staff was incredibly accommodating. I also worked with Michael for our rehearsal dinner and he made the process easy and fun. I can't say enough about this venue: the staff, the food, the location. It was a truly wonderful experience. Book it!

  • The Banquet Manager, Todd Smith, handled the ceremony and reception for my daughters wedding. He and the staff did an awsome job. The food was great, their service and quality was unsurpassed at any wedding either my wife or I have attended. Everyone at our event said that this was the best wedding they had ever attended. The professional and courteous staff was truely responsive to the needs of all our guests. We will recommend them to everyone we know.

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Garrison. We worked with Todd and he was such an enormous help in planning the day. He was incredibly responsive and inventive with some of our more trying requests. The day went absolutely perfectly and The Garrison was the beautiful backdrop with delicious food and outstanding service.

  • From the moment we walked into the Garrison and met Todd we knew we were in the right place. He gave us everything we needed for a wonderfully seamless wedding day, including relaxation! All of the vendors he suggested were absolutely wonderful, and he knew they were b/c he only recommends the best! Todd was there with us every step of the way, thinking of things that we never would have that were the perfect finishing touches. Staying at the Garrison the night before with my bridesmaids and getting our mani/pedi and a lovely massage was the best thing ever, how many venues can offer that?!?! The staff did a wonderful job on all of our hair and makeup, we looked like models! Todd was there bright and early with his staff ready to get everything ready. Although I must say, mostly everything was already done because he had me plan ahead! It was the most stress free day, and it was my wedding day! Throughout the wedding the entire staff was amazing, to the point that I wa... Read more

  • I had my wedding at The Garrison in June 2010. From the first time I saw the location, I knew that I wanted to have my wedding there. Even though I took some time, and looked at other locations, I always came back to The Garrison. I'm so happy that I did. From the first time I met with our wedding coordinator, Todd Smith, I knew that I made the right decision. Todd was so helpful: from assistance with vendor referrals, to knowing what we needed to do and think about throughout the time leading up to the wedding, and just for being there and helping to calm my nerves, I'm forever grateful. And not just Todd, but all the staff at The Garrison was knowledgable and helpful whenever needed. Overall, my wedding was AMAZING, and I know that the location was a huge reason. A lot of people have told me that this wedding was the best they've ever attended, because of the beautiful location, delicious, fresh food, classy (yet not stuffy) atmosphere, and all the wonderful staff.

  • Annie at the Garrison is amazing! I wish we started with her from the beginning. We originally started with Todd but he was let go 3 weeks before our wedding. Probably sounds stressful considering your wedding coordinator basically disappeared right before your wedding, but Annie assured us that everything would go according to plan and she had reviewed all of Todd's notes and spoke to us over the phone to make sure everything was what we wanted. I can't speak about Annie's planning process, but Todd asked us about every little detail starting from where to sit the parents to what table cloths would go with the flowers. Annie was on point the day of the wedding. There were a couple of hiccups with the DJ but she handled everything behind the scenes and we didn't even know! She calmed us down before our entrance/choreographed dance and truly was wonderful/nice. As if Annie wasn't enough, the venue is just perfect. Beautiful backdrop and amazing food. They even personalized our own dinne... Read more

  • On the whole, I was very happy with our experience at the Garrison. Here are my detailed thoughts on the venue, which we used for both our ceremony and reception. Planning Process: The planning process went well and I found them to be very responsive to my e-mails and questions in the year prior to the wedding. We had a bit of drama as we were working with another wedding coordinator (Jennifer O'Toole) who abruptly quit 2 weeks before my wedding!!! She had been great up until that point, but Todd had to take over last minute. He did a good job considering that he hadn't been working with us through the whole process. Todd was somewhat rigid and not nearly as warm as Jennifer, but he absolutely knows what he is doing. Setting: The setting is pretty spectacular and especially if you're considering a daytime wedding, it would be even more spectacular. We did our wedding as the sun set and then the reception occurred once it was dark. All of our guests commented on what a... Read more

  • We held our daughter's wedding at The Garrison on a glorious Sunday afternoon. It was spectacular. We have received glowing compliments from all our guests. The food was wonderful, the staff professional and attentive, the wine flowing and the location beyond breathtaking. We wouldn't change a moment. I worked with Jennifer. For months she and I discussed every tiny detail of this day. Jennifer was there for us every minute of the day, even before the day....as we checked into the inn the day before. She made us feel that she genuinely cared about us, that our day was as special to her as it was to us. She promised to help make the day perfect, and she delivered completely. Our daughter is a vegan and had many dietery concerns. We met with the chef, Brandon who took the time to create an entree and cocktail hour food that our daughter, as well as our guests would enjoy. They even had a special pitcher of soy milk for her coffee! The food at The Garrison is a cut well above ... Read more

  • Overall, I loved the Garrison, especially our banquet manager Todd, who went out of his way to attend to every detail even when he severed part of his fingers in a lawn mower accident several weeks before our wedding! The view was spectacular and the food was fantastic, including the cake from the Pastry Garden. The few complaints we had were very minor: They don't offer tastings for the entree so you really have to trust them. That's a big leap of faith when you're spending thousands of dollars on the venue. We ate at the Valley Restaurant just in case but the menu is completely different from the catering menu. They did offer one big tasting of the appetizers for all the spring/summer couples a couple of months before the wedding but it was on a Friday night (and we don't live in the area), it was packed and they ran out of some of the items so we didn't get to taste everything. The other minor complaint was the temperature of the room. Since we had our ceremony on-site, the... Read more

  • The Garrison is an absolutely gorgeous venue with delicious food that truly exceeded the typical wedding fare. We were overall pleased with the service--Amanda was flexible, responsive, and well-organized. The only disappointment was a poorly served vegetarian meal to one of my closest friends...Overall, I highly recommend The Garrison.

  • When we first decided on the Garrison, we did so because we thought the venue was stunning, the food amazing, and the price quite reasonable. However, the staff at the time we signed the contract was not very impressive. 6 months later the Garrison completely replaced the events staff, and the new staff is AMAZING! Todd was assigned to our wedding and we couldn't have been happier. He is really superb and is the reason our day went so flawlessly. He was committed to making sure everything ran smoothly and it did. The Garrison grows much of their own produce, and the food quality is very high (their on site restaurant is highly rated on Zagat). As a result, the dinner was delicious, the cake (from the Pastry Garden) was amazing (well worth the extra $100) and the servers were all very professional. The only complaint I could have is that as it was super, unseasonably hot (95+ degrees on June 7th), the ACs just weren't up to the task. That said, Todd made all sorts of last minut... Read more

  • The Garrison is located in a beautiful setting. We found our initial meetings with the staff went very well; they were friendly and offered good suggestions. We found that once we signed the paperwork, though, we were assigned to an event coordinator who didn't seem all that bright and who couldn't remember any of our details. When things went wrong on the day of the event, the first response we received was "that wasn't explicit in the contract." Well, we had discussed these things literally the day before the ceremony and no one said that it was a possibility that it wouldn't occur because it wasn't spelled out in the contract. When we wrote a letter detailing the mishaps after our wedding, the General Manager of the Garrison was very gracious and apologetic. So I would encourage another bride to book there with the proviso that she get EVERYTHING in writing ahead of time.
