“We cannot recommend CIA, Jason Lowenthal, or his entire team highly enough to host your wedding at their stunning campus in Hyde Park, NY. The incredible attention to detail started from our first phone call with Jason helping us to brainstorm all sorts of creative ideas, letting us make the entire event truly our own. The culinary team are superstars as well, led by the chef who thoughtfully crafted our menu with us. Jason and his team managed to pull off our entire day exactly as planned despite thunderstorms, crying flower boys, and the million other fires that need putting out. We can’t thank him enough and would tell anyone that they should have full confidence their wedding (or other event) will be exactly how they want it to be (or even better) at CIA.”—Richard Myers and Ran Levinsky, 2022
“We toured and booked CIA after finding out from my mom (an alumni) that they host weddings. From the second we met Jason we knew CIA would be our venue. During the two years of planning, Jason probably answered 250 emails from me—yes, I was definitely the most annoying bride of the season. Jason and his team are unmatched. They were able to re-make my husband and my favorite dish from our favorite restaurant in New York City, made the best cocktails, and I have not stopped hearing about how good the food was from our guests, many of whom are chefs or service professionals. My husband and I plan on visiting CIA for all future anniversaries, and I will be recommending CIA as a venue to any brides I meet. If you’re on the fence about booking here, reach out to me!”—Molly G., 2023
