The Report:

Built between 1914 and 1916, the House of the Redeemer was built as the home of Edith Shepard Fabbri, a great granddaughter of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt, and her husband, Ernesto Fabbri. Designed by Grosvenor Atterbury, an American architect who trained at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, the house has three distinct areas for a wedding. According to the venue, the Reception Room is ideal for “smaller cocktail parties and meetings,” while the Refectory is available for “lunches, dinners, meetings, and parties.” The Library, which had originally been in a 15th century Ducal castle and installed in the house during World War 1, is noted for its “acoustics for wedding receptions, musical events and lectures.”

Woman Getting Married Says:

The first thing to understand about this venue is that it’s not a typical venue, nor do they focus on being one. Because of that you won’t get the perks of getting married in a traditional wedding venue (such as tables, chairs, lighting, etc.), but you will get a unique wedding venue in New York City that isn’t a wedding factory. I actually like this as a daytime wedding venue (think Brunch) where the 10 p.m. cut-off time won’t be a downer. I would definitely add this to your budget-friendly NYC list if you’re willing to have an intimate wedding that won’t go into the wee hours or that’s in the summer (they don’t have A/C and they’re closed June-Labor Day).
