Our daughter was married at Clifton a few weeks ago. All of the wedding events were at Clifton, from the rehearsal dinner to the wedding and dinner. The rehearsal dinner was casual, the wedding a formal event with a seated dinner and band. All of the rooms were occupied by wedding guests.
It was a great weekend. The staff was accommodating, pleasant and hard-working. The wedding provided a number of challenges and changes as the weather was terrible. Dinner was served seamlessly. The dinners, one buffet and under a tent, the other seated and formal offered up varied menus that were very good and presented beautifully.
It's important to know that Clifton is not an over-furnished, stuffy location. It is warm and inviting, rustic in a way. The gardens are well-tended. We had to contend with stink bugs, but that comes with the season and they disappear when the weather changes. We knew from the beginning that even though we were having a formal event, that there would be no stuffiness. The furniture can be creaky, but it is all part of the charm.
Clifton has a very able wedding planner, Kaitlyn Hoy. She is reliable and accessible. If there was any disappointment, the weekend manager was not of the quality that Clifton offers in all other arenas.
We could have gone to any place we wanted. Clifton offered up graciousness, fine dining, and elegance in a lovely country setting. We would go back any time.
