I can't believe it has been 3 months since our wedding day! We had such an amazing time and you are the main reason that the entire planning process was smooth, and that day was spent in effortless enjoyment. Thank you again (a million times over, and thank you Kathy as well)!

We recently got married at Glenora on 6/1/13. Kathy and the rest of the staff are ABSOLUTELY amazing. I received so many compliments on how wonderful they were. They really go above and beyond to make your day perfect. Kathy was so great to work with- she would really do anything for you! She is so sweet. I really can't say enough great things about her. The atmosphere is just gorgeous- winery, the beautiful lake, the terrace. Everyone complimented us all night on the food. Chef Orlando is just awesome.
It was so beautiful and perfect- exactly what we wanted. Almost everyone told us it was the most amazing wedding they had ever been to. Thank you Kathy & the rest of the staff.

My husband and I really struggled to find a venue for our wedding. We looked at a million places before my mom mentioned Glenora. We instantly fell in love with the easily accessible and inviting rooms as well as having a guest house right off-set of Glenora for more guests to stay in. Kathy was amazing from day one. She was right in step with what I was going for and always made me feel comfortable and at ease with the process. Budgeting and payment was clearly laid out for us and made that process easy as well. One of the highlights was the food. We did an Italian Buffet and it was by far the best wedding food I've ever had, and just about all of our guests couldn't agree more. In fact, all of our guests had mentioned that they want to come back to Glenora for a weekend get-away and for the food! Also, we had several gluten-free guests. The chef made the Italian dishes gluten free for them and their plates were beautifully put together and brought to each guest who needed them. Additionally, there was another guest that I didn't know was gluten-free, but Kathy caught wind of it and immediately brought a plate out to him. Another highlight was Kathy's impeccable service. If she couldn't answer an email Chrystie was quick to respond - their teamwork is flawless.

Kathy went above and beyond. My husband and I both could go on forever on how wonderful she was to us. Lastly, staying at the Glenora was great. Our complimentary Suite was great and oh so cozy!! All of our guests were greeted with complimentary champagne at check in as well as a bottle of wine in their room. The next morning, coffee stations were set up in the hallway on top of having your own coffee in your room. Many of our guests who stayed at Glenora spent the morning on their front decks and we all ended up gathering around and sharing the morning together. It was perfect. Overall, Glenora is gorgeous and the staff makes wedding planning a breeze and fun! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Finger Lakes area!

Our wedding was the most wonderful day ever! The ceremony was in the lawn and the scenery is literally breath taking. We were able to get photographs in the vineyard, under the willow tree and also down the street at the amazing waterfall. All of our friends kept telling us how beautiful everything was and that it was the funnest/best wedding they had ever been to. Kathy is the nicest person in the world! I couldn't have imagined a better wedding planner. She took care of everything and made sure our day went perfectly. We had some problems with our flowers the day before the wedding and she went above and beyond to help us. I am so thankful for her. We loved our wedding so much and are so glad we decided to have it at Glenora!

We cannot begin to thank you enough
for giving us the wedding of our dreams.
I cannot tell you how many compliments
we received regarding the food, venue,
ambiance, and service. From the start
of the weekend to the end, everything
was beautiful. Alicia Skwortz
I really can't recommend Glenora enough.
If you are looking for a beautiful lake wedding
with 4 star service and a beautiful site where all your
guests can stay right on the property, I don't think you can
do any better in the finger lakes.

"Hi Kathy- I just wanted to take a minute to thank you and everyone else at Glenora for helping to put on what turned out to be a beautiful wedding for Andrea and Jason. Your help with the decorations was grealty appreciated as those last couple hours were really stressful! The food was outstanding! My uncle who is a huge food critic to the point of embarrassment in restaurants- called me over to his table and said to me "who picked out the food?" I thought ut oh- here we go- he's going to complain! Then he said the meal was outstanding and thought the beef dish was the best he had ever had! Kudos to your chef staff! I have already recommended Glenora to someone here at work whose daughter is getting married, but she thinks their guest list will be close to 200. Anyways- thanks again to you and your staff for everything!"

"Dear Kathy and Chrystie,
Wow! What an amazing weekend. Our wedding, and all of the details and events surrounding it, was a complete success. Both of you, and your staff, were so instrumental in that success, and we absolutely love you for it! Thank you simply doesn’t cut it. Your attention to detail, your care and delicate handling of the individuals involved, and your hard work and personal stake in the success of our event is unparalleled. Thank you so much for all you’ve done for us. We had multiple locations in mind when we started our journey toward the big day, and we’re so glad we chose Glenora. The weekend was magical, and everyone we’ve spoken to post-ceremony has gushed about how beautiful and perfect everything was. "
