Our aesthetic is inspired by the rebellious spirit of Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt
The Vanderbilt exceeded my expectations, it was truly a beautiful and magical experience. The space was perfect for us and the staff were warm and so helpful! The garden, layout and setting was a stunning backdrop to our intimate wedding. And their constant and quick communication was a great help in the planning process. I, and all our guests truly enjoyed our evening!
