Perfect Wedding

We had our wedding here last weekend and I cannot imagine a more perfect place to have held it. The food was incredible, the venue was beautiful and the staff was amazing. They were so accommodating and helpful all through the process. Kimberly Ann, the events coordinator,... Read More made helpful suggestions and gave so much attention to detail. And Gus, our Maitre'd, made sure that everything went exactly according to plan! When we went for our tasting, to select the final menu, it was both romantic and delicious...and the food was just as good at the reception! The wines they selected were a perfect accompaniment. If you're getting married in Westchester County, NY, this is the place to go! I will definitely use them again, next time I have a party to cater!

Planning a wedding is supposed to be stressful right? However working with Kimberly and Gustavo made planning my wedding a complete breeze!. They were available whenever I needed them, giving me suggestions and just making the whole process simple and fun. Kimberly was always...

On our special day we were able to enjoy our time with our family and friends and not have to worry about anything because Kimberly and Gustavo had already taken care of it. The food was fantastic all our guests enjoyed everything from the cocktail hour to dessert. We had an outdoor wedding in October. The setting was beautiful. Both my husband and I highly recommend this venue for any and every special occasion!

We were looking for a venue that was not a “wedding factory” and that is exactly what we found in the Kittle House! Each room at the Inn is so charming. My bridesmaids and I stayed in 2F and it was the perfect place to hang out during the morning and take pictures. Our entire...

She had a calm presence from start to finish and was so helpful in answering all of my questions. She truly goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding is exactly how you envision. Her hard work made everything run smoothly. She even wrote us a note of congratulations a couple days after the wedding. The staff at the Kittle House are so accommodating, whether it be allergies or setting up complicated escort cards. The food was delicious and all the guests really enjoyed themselves! Our day was beyond perfect and we are overjoyed we booked our wedding here.

My family and I thought having my daughter's wedding at Crabtree Kittle House was a sure thing. We had eaten at the restaurant a multitude of times. The food and service were always amazing. We were greatly disappointed with catering part of the restaurant. Food was not at the... Read More same level as the restaurant. The steak was tough and the fish was dry in some cases. It took more then an hour for tables to receive their dinners. Instead of bringing everyone's dinner out on a large tray waiters were bringing them out two at a time. It seemed like the waiter staff were very inexperienced. Also we were told that the food that we ordered for the cocktail hour was going to be an abundance. We were extremely disappointed with the portions of food that were displayed. The venue room was very hot. The air conditioner under the atrium was leaking. At the end of the evening someone put a bucket to catch the leaking water from the ceiling. We also felt that the Maître was not present when needed. When guests were arriving to the venue they were assembling in the bar and side garden area were the bride and groom were taking photos with the photographer. The bride should not have been seen until the ceremony. The Maître d' should have had guests assemble in the garden where the ceremony was going to take place. Such a great disappointment for a day that will happen only once in a lifetime. Mother of the Bride

We had our June 2016 wedding at the Kittle House, and the beautiful location, friendly and efficient service, and delicious-not-just-by-wedding-standards food truly blew us away. Tiffany, the fabulous event coordinator there, really held our hands through the process and was... Read More patient and responsive with every question and concern (and even those of the mother of the bride). She really went out of her way to be helpful. One example: the couple who held their wedding their the evening before had selected gray seat cushions, and Tiffany offered to keep them for an extra day in case we wanted to use them. She fulfilled a preference we didn’t even know we had. The outdoor location is truly beautiful (overlooks a golf course, but you really can’t tell), and the food, well, there’s a reason why it’s the favorite restaurant of one former president and one future president (i.e., the Clintons). On our wedding day, we didn’t have to think about much since we and our guests were completely cared for and attended to. We heard praise for the staff from everyone! We visited four or five places and this one was the standard no others could compare to. To this day I’m not sure how we found them, but we’re so glad we did. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth it. They really are a five-star establishment. They are awesome. Downside (or minor quibble for snobs): The coffee is not ‘third-wave’. Is that important for your event? Get married at Kaffe 1668 or just bring your own beans.

There is no way for me to put into words how WONDERFUL and PERFECT my wedding of 200 was at the Kittle House! We have loved the restaurant for years, and knew it was where we wanted to get married before we were even engaged - and we absolutely made the best decision in all of... Read More Westchester County and beyond. As an event planner myself, I know what it takes to put an event of this magnitude together and have worked with countless venues in the area, and I can't begin to compliment Tiffany, Leo and Michael for their incredible professionalism, talent and passion for what they do. They made our every wish a reality, and I walked into my wedding feeling 100% confident that everything was taken care of at the highest level, which I have never been able to do for any other event! I was so relieved to know I had their unbelievable staff behind me, and they were there every single step of the way. I can't possibly say enough about them! The room and back lawn was beautiful and comfortable (even at capacity with a full 8-piece band), the service by their fantastic and friendly waitstaff is impeccable and of course, the food is out of control good. We chose the Kittle House based on our love of the food and the magnificent wine list (and cellar, which I would recommend pictures in!), and we got so, so much more. In addition, our entire bridal party and both sets of parents stayed at the Inn, which was lovely. Beautiful rooms and so convenient. There is no way we could have had a more perfect and memorable wedding weekend. We are so excited to have chosen a venue that we can go back to time and time again and enjoy for our next dinner out, or our next big party. We will never look any further for a special occasion. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

My husband and I were married at the Kittle House on November 7, 2015, and couldn't be happier about our decision. We booked the day we saw the place for the first time, and it was the only venue we checked out. We were trying to avoid a "wedding factory" kind of feel, and the... Read More Kittle House delivered. The setting is tranquil and classy with a slight rustic feel. Tiffany was our planner, and she was with us every step of the way, day and night. She had creative ideas, which our guests loved, but also listened to our requests, and delivered on everything we wanted from spiked hot cider for our guests during the ceremony, to grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters at the cocktail hour! The maitre d', Michael, was the most accommodating person I have ever worked with. Our ceremony was supposed to be inside since it was November; but, the weather was so unseasonably warm, that Michael worked to move it outside, which is exactly what we had hoped for. Everything went according to plan without a hiccup. It actually went better than expected because we were able to have our dog walk down the aisle. The inn is pet friendly! Oh...and it's a inn, so we were able to stay the night before, get ready there, and have pictures taken without having to worry about limousines and traveling from one location to another. I can't leave out Leo, the sommelier, who went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect, and everyone was taken care of. Book this place. Do it! You won't regret it.

After viewing many wedding venues in Westchester County, we decided to look at Crabtree's Kittle House - and we are so glad we did! Tiffany (our eventual event planner) was very prompt in responding to my initial inquiry and was so kind over the phone. When we first arrived,... Read More Tiffany had booklets of past weddings for us to view, she took time to answer all of our questions and give us a tour of the site. The main atrium room with the adjacent garden was so intimate and was one of the main reasons we fell in love with this venue. We waited less than 2 weeks to sign a contract. Throughout the entire process, Tiffany was available via phone and email anytime. She always responded promptly and would answer numerous questions graciously. She constantly had additional suggestions, but never pushed me to change what my vision was. She was always polite, kind, professional and trustworthy. She thought of everything we needed and executed it perfectly. I wasn't nervous about the reception because I knew things were going to be perfect because Tiffany was at the helm. Our wedding was a success because of Tiffany, I have no idea what I would have done without having her every step of the way. The food was incredible and our guests could not stop talking about the variety and quantity of food available throughout our reception. The entire staff was polite and accommodating with whatever we needed for any guests (allergies, gluten free, etc). The staff was efficient and prompt through the entire evening but were never obtrusive. I remember saying to my husband "I wish we could get married here everyday" because of how perfect everything was during the reception. There was not a single thing I would change about the day. Having our wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House was the best decision we made and would recommend them to anyone having a wedding in the area. Thank you Tiffany and the rest of Crabtree's Kittle House staff for our perfect wedding day.

Getting married at the Kittle House was the wedding I never knew I wanted and now cannot imagine not having had. Kimberly, thank you again and again.
