There's not enough I could say about our wedding at the Grand View this summer. Our wedding was August 12th outside in the tent. We chose the tent because we really wanted an outdoor feeling. This tent really exceeds your expectations. It is so beautiful and elegant looking,... Read More especially in photos. The back drop of the river is amazing in each photo as well. I was worried about having our wedding in the tent in the middle of the summer due summer heat. Of course we ended up having our wedding on one of the hottest days of the year in NY. We were sweating profusely. However Michael our matre d and Sonia went above and beyond in accommodating not only us (bride and groom) but our families as well. They constantly had cold drinks, water on hand and cold towels when someone needed it. Michael even had a small fan blowing up my dress at some point to cool me down. Anything I needed they are right there to take care of it, my dad was even so impressed with how well they took care of him that day. Margaret was amazing she helped us plan all details of our wedding up to the day. The food was delicious all of our guests raved about it, and despite the heat many of them said it was one of the best weddings they have been to. If you are looking to get married in the Hudson Valley the Grand View is a must! We waiting two years to have it and it was absolutely worth the wait.

THE GRANDVIEW MADE MY WEDDING UNFORGETTABLE! For the biggest and best day of your life - choose this venue!!!! I could go on forever about the wonderful service that was provided to my family and I for our special day. I had an October 2016 wedding in the Grand Ballroom (indoor... Read More ballroom) and it was the quintessential definition of wedding elegance. The facilities themselves are fabulous, we had access to a wrap around deck outside of the cocktail hour space which had stunning views of the Hudson River with all of the fall foliage at its peak! My guests were in shock of how beautiful it was!!! The service was spectacular - the bartenders, waiters, cooks, everyone was ON POINT, professional and so sweet. In particular, Victor and Sonja catering to myself and my husband throughout the night. They knew exactly what to do, how to make us feel comfortable and not stressed because they were constantly making sure we were hydrated, happy, and they gave us a sense of confidence that they were going to make our night the best night ever. Victor took us through the reception area before the guests came in and setup all of the events - the introductions, the transition into the first dance, cake cutting, everything so all we had to do was have a great time. Sonja also was superb, she even helped many times before the cocktail hour even started and went down to the waterfront with the bridal party for pictures and made sure the train on my gown always looked good in the pictures. She was so pleasant and I felt so secure knowing she had my back so I looked good at all angles in front of my guests, even making sure my bustle was ok! Its also worth mentioning that Shadows on the Hudson, which is next-door, is also a fabulous restaurant and because I had a few hours in between my ceremony and cocktail hour, many guests went there in the meantime for some drinks and had a wonderful time. Now, the food is incredible.. SIMPLY INCREDIBLE! And theres no shortage of it, and whatever you want! For mine I had a wonderful pasta course, salad course, delicious entrees, followed by the wedding cake and Viennese extravaganza. People are still commenting on their Viennese - its not the same old chocolate fountain either... Fresh filled cannoli station, campfire s'mores station, mile high cakes, french and Italian pastries, crepe station, hot zepoles, milkshakes, root beer floats and yes... apple cider doughnuts! I asked Margaret about the doughnuts prior to the wedding and if I could get rid of something else to have the doughnuts instead and she said "OH NO! If you want doughnuts, then you're getting doughnuts! Its whatever you want". That was an awesome moment. But all and all the Grandview made planning super simple, they have monthly tastings so you can sample the food and its like a mini wedding in itself! Each step of the way from picking the table linens to the menus, and dropping of the accessories like the card box and toasting flutes, everything was professionally handled with care and executed to perfection. Thanks to the Grandview I had the perfect wedding. The only thing I was sad about is that I did not see the woman who made it all happen for my wedding, the events manager Margaret! Please know you are so fantastic, beyond words and I could not be happier for the lifelong memories I created at the Grandview!! <3

We could not say enough good things about the Grandview!! From our first visit, to the end of the wedding day, we were consistently blown away by the level of service, care, delicious food, absolutely gorgeous setting, and did we say delicious food? We spent countless hours and... Read More miles in our car searching for the perfect wedding venue option. The moment we walked in, our jaws dropped and excitement set in. We were planning a wedding from out of state, and they helped us through the process. They coach you through each step, providing clear instructions and helpful lists, giving you an idea of what the day looks like, what is expected from you, and what they are doing as well. The wedding couple gets treated like royalty for a day, with someone always caring for you, helping you, filling your drink, making sure you have food, helping with timing of when to walk down the aisle, I mean everything. It takes the stress of the wedding day out - and you can simply enjoy the best day of your life. They make it more than just a hired venue and service. They take the time, care, and attention to not just meet the expectations, but make sure you are happy. On a day filled with emotion, weight, and importance in your life, they get that. We were in disbelief with the food. The options and stations and ideas are fun, creative, classy, and sure to be a WOW factor to your guests. We had a GORGEOUS cake done for us, and it matched perfectly to the photo inspiration we provided. The scenery and setting, is unbeatable. It is also cost effective for what you get. We created so many pricing, pros and cons lists, but Grandview was the best. Lastly, we would like to thank all staff, from the bottom of our hearts, for all the hard work that was put in to make our day what it was. It wouldn't have been the same anywhere else. We could not tell you how many of our guests said it was the best wedding they ever attended in their life. Here's to many more happy couples being married there!!!
