Tappan Hill Mansion is located on the former estate of Mark Twain in the scenic Hudson Valley. Just 45 minutes from midtown Manhattan, the Mansion is easily accessible from the entire tri-state area. The MetroNorth Hudson line from Grand Central stops in Tarrytown, and Tappan Hill is a short 5 min cab ride from the train station.
Free shuttles from the Westchester Marriott to Tappan Hill leave at 3:15pm, 3:30pm and 3:45pm.
Return shuttles from Tappan Hill to the Westchester Marriott are at 9:30pm, 9:45pm and 10pm.
Please plan to arrive promptly at 3:30pm. Weather permitting, we're planning on having a short outdoor ceremony in the garden.
We invite you to be fully present with us during our ceremony, so please, no phones or cameras during the ceremony.
Join us for cocktail hour in a suite overlooking the Hudson River, followed by dinner, dancing, and dessert in the Hudson Room.
Dress: Black Tie Optional
That means, if you're a guy who wants to wear a tux, go for it! If not, dark formal suits are fine. Ladies are welcome to wear floor length gowns or fancier cocktail dresses-- whatever you're most comfortable in. It's October in the Hudson Valley, so temps can be anywhere from 50 degrees to 65 degrees on average.
