An Event That Is Exclusively Yours
From the bridal suite to the ballroom, both the wedding party and guests will feel pampered by the elegance, comfort, and charm of their surroundings. The Old Tappan Manor’s commitment to excellence begins with dedicated and undivided personal attention to every bride and groom and their families. We offer you an evening that is exclusively yours. From the moment your guests are ushered in the door, offered sparkling champagne and directed to the dark cherry wood finished bar which highlights the lounge area, the staff of the Old Tappan Manor is there to attend to every detail. Full service bartenders serving top-shelf liquors and fine domestic wines will also be happy to mix a “signature drink” of the bride and groom’s choice. Reception chefs will prepare sumptuous delicacies during a cocktail hour so elaborate that it will flow from room to room.
No aspect has been overlooked. The beauty of your surroundings is matched by an equally impressive menu and exceptional white-glove service. Our chefs will work with you to customize menus that meet your individual tastes and personal circumstances. We will create the perfect menu for you that is sure to please even your most discerning palates. Our banquet consultants, with their wealth of knowledge and expertise will guide you through the planning of your special day. We will introduce you to our hand-selected wedding professionals, who, through our years of experience, have proven to be the best in the business; offering you choices of exquisite décor, exciting entertainment and memorable photography. Your grand entrance as husband and wife, into a ballroom that is so breath-taking, is sure to become the one memory that lasts a lifetime.
Your first dance on an inlaid marble and granite 900 square foot dance floor will showcase you as a couple, and, be ample enough for 290 guests to dance the night away. You’ll dance below a beautiful ly vaulted ceiling and beneath the glow of eight cut-crystal chandeliers. This brilliantly appointed grand ballroom is surrounded by hand carved crown moldings, classic Roman-style fluted columns, intricately carved corbels and high arched Palladian windows. And through those windows, serving as a picturesque backdrop to the bride and groom table, is our illuminated twenty foot waterfall, set amidst romantic gardens and the perfect spot for your wedding portrait. If the soft muted beige tones of the ballroom are not part of your vision, then we can offer you the option of ambient lighting throughout the evening in colors to match your flowers, your bridesmaid dresses or the bride’s gleaming eyes.
From start to finish, Martin and his team at OTM were incredible. After 2 postponements due to covid and other life circumstances, we finally had the wedding of our dreams. Martin and the whole team made us feel like the most special people in the world from our first site visit through the reception. They’re all extremely knowledgeable about the industry - what will work, what won’t, and are committed to trying to make your vision happen. The team was communicative throughout the whole process, with prompt response time for any and all questions. With so many changes and postponements on our end, they were still supremely flexible. The venue itself is gorgeous, and the food is INCREDIBLE. I think people will be talking about our cocktail hour for the rest of our lives. Day-of, we were treated like celebrities. Lauren the maitre de is phenomenal-we went through every single detail the night before and it was executed beyond my expectations day-of. They think of everything before it happens and are quick to seamlessly pivot if things change last minute (which they always do!) Cannot recommend the venue, food or the team at OTM more.
