The CVMansion is a beautiful site with gorgeous outdoor gardens. Our experience was enhanced by working with Joanna Malone who was professional, receptive to our needs and always available to answer questions and quell our anxieties. The food, by Caperberry Events was outrageously good, guests are still talking about the high caliber food and the beauty of the food presentations. I would strongly recommend this venue without hesitation.
We had our wedding this past weekend at the CV Rich mansion. It was wonderful in every way and much of that is due to Joanna, Caperberry and the beautiful venue.
Joanna is knowledgeable and experienced. She had the answers to all our questions and guided us through the planning as necessary. She made sure the wedding events went smoothly and that enabled us to relax and enjoy the ride. She also had the perfect words for me just before I was to walk down the aisle. Much appreciated!
The food by Caperberry is amazing. The waitstaff is very capable. They had many of the same staff as over a year ago when we attended another wedding (at a different venue), so it certainly seems that they treat their staff well and retain good employees.
And the mansion is just gorgeous. We had our ceremony outside. The gardens are lush and very well cared for. The cocktail hour was on the patio and in the rooms of the mansion. Then we moved into the ballroom for the reception.
It was wonderful in every way and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend the venue to everyone!
Not only is the CV Rich a beautiful building in a quiet and welcoming neighborhood, but it's also a true value. We got so many compliments on the food, the decor, everything. And Joanna was basically a full-service planner throughout the entire process and we could not be more grateful. We had exactly the wedding we wanted and more people should discover this gem of a venue!
My husband and I wanted a venue that didn't have a wedding factory feel the CV Rich mansion exceeded our expectations. The food was amazing - excellent restaurant quality. The service was unbelievable and Joanna took care of every detail. I would recommend this venue to everyone.
The venue was perfect, the food was perfect, our wedding was perfect.
We worked with Joanna and the wonderful staff at Caperberry and from start to finish our event couldn't have been more perfect.
We really had nothing to worry about on our day. They truly exceeded our expectations!
Thank you for making our special day perfect :)
The day went perfectly and we know that's due in large part to event planner Joanna Malone and her staff. She was reassuring right from the beginning and we needed someone just like that; but in her case it wasn't idle comfort, it came from someone who really could make everything be just right.
We could not have found a better event planner or a more beautiful venue. Two couples who were at the wedding are already telling us they are thinking about the venue for their kids' weddings! The service was great - the wait staff were fabulous, they glided amongst the guests and kept the food coming at all times. And everyone raved about the food - quantity, quality, variety and flavor!
We lucked out with the weather and were able to have the ceremony outside on the beautiful patio. Joanna made the switch from an indoor ceremony that morning and had everything arranged quickly and smoothly, as if we had always planned it that way!
The five-room mansion is elegant but not stuffy, and worked perfectly for our smaller, more casual reception. The DJ and bar were in the sunroom at one end, and cocktail tables were set up in the tea room at the other end, so our older guests did not have to "endure" the music that the younger guests were dancing to. The passed h'ors d'ouevres and appetizer stations allowed guests to fill and refill their plates with their favorite foods, and eat outside or inside. The furniture arranged in small converstion groups in the living room and library allowed our guests to easily catch up with relatives or meet new people.
The pricing plans were flexible enough to accomodate exactly the event we wanted, and very reasonable, but with no stinting on quality. Joanna's recommendations on DJ and photographer were right on target, too.
We will have wonderful memories for many years to come!
I would definitely recommend the CV Rich mansion. I had the platinum package and all everyone did was talk about the crazy amounts of food there was. The one thing I didn't like is that they don't assign you a bridal attendant until after cocktail hour. So there wasn't anyone bringing us food or drinks to the bridal suite which a lot of other catering halls do. But, it is an historic property so it's part of the deal.
We were married at the CV Rich Mansion on Friday, August 17th 2012. Our experience prior to the wedding and on the wedding day was exceptional; the venue and staff were above our expectations and did everything to make our dream day come true.
The venue is a historic Victorian mansion; with culture and personality. It is not a modern, clean and perfect venue instead it is a grand home with lots of personal character and warmth. The “imperfections” are just perfect. The upkeep on this property is exceptional; the landscaping (which is vast) is also beyond beautiful. When you enter it, you cannot help but feel as if you stepped into your own grand home.
Joanna Mallone, our main contact and planner for the venue. She is a patient, meticulous, honest, sweet and caring person. She dedicates her all to her client; she made us feel as if we were the only wedding or event that she had that whole summer. She is swift on communication and had no problems answering all of our questions or catering to our many needs.
The staff for the mansion are also amazing. They are all so polite and outgoing for their guests that we truly felt like royalty the day of our wedding.
The food was the icing on the cake. There was not a dry chicken in sight! The groom accidentally walked into the kitchen the morning that we were getting married and he saw the chefs individually braising each chicken for our event…we figured it would be put in the oven but to cook everything individually shows that this place cares about their client. There is a large food selection that is given to you and you cannot go wrong in any choice. Our guests are still raving about the food and no one went home hungry.
The drinks, again cannot remotely be terrible at this wonderful place. The bartenders were very courteous to our friends who love to drink and were bombarding them. They remembered everyone’s drinks, were heavy handed and lightened up when they needed to be.
This venue is perfect for:
1. Smaller wedding parties (four bridesmaids/groomsmen max) …. If you plan on getting ready at the Mansion.
2. The couple who wants to have something different than the norm, this is not a wedding factory location.
3. The couple who wants personalized service.
4. The couple who is easy going because the staff here sure will be as easy going with you, and further go out of their way for you.
5. The couple who focuses on food, tasty food and lots of it!
If we could rewind time we would relive this moment over and over. It was perfect and we would like to thank Caperberry Events and the CV Rich Mansion, most of all Joanna Mallone for being an integral part in our wedding and making it just spectacular.
I recently had my wedding reception at C.V. Rich Mansion in White Plains this past September. The setup of the mansion, and the way it all came together the night of our reception, was exactly the look my husband and I were searching for. It is a classic home. You feel like you are in someone's beautiful house, and then enter the large ballroom with hardwood floors, high ceilings and a stage (perfect for your band or DJ). Joanna, the wedding coordinator, was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire wedding process, and was there to help us the day of the wedding. We looked at a lot of reception sites, and did not want to settle for the same old look, or the 'wedding factory.' Oh, and I almost forgot the food is incredible; creative choices that are guests are still talking about. We had a wonderful experience and I would not have changed a thing about this venue. It is a hidden gem!
It had old world charm with 5 rooms having a different flair, a beautiful garden in bloom the week of May 25th, a huge ballroom
Everything was perfect. The food the setting... absolutely fantastic.;Absolutely nothing
