I found the Jacob Henry Mansion when we were planning our daughters wedding. We scheduled a visit to the venue and were completely impressed from the time we met with Sarah and her Mom. During the planning stages, Sarah and her Mom were a joy to work with and made everything easy to coordinate even when I had questions. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were even more than I had ever expected. From the moment I stepped into the Victorian Ballroom, it took my breath away it was so beautiful. After the wedding was over, about 50 people commented to us that it was by far, without a doubt, the best wedding they had ever been to. I would absolutely hold another event or wedding at The Jacob Henry Mansion!!

Congratulations on your engagement! As you begin planning your wedding, remember to enjoy yourselves. Your wedding day will be one of the most beautiful days of your lives. At the Jacob Henry Mansion Estate, it is the ambiance of the past that will create the perfect setting for your future together…

The Jacob Henry Mansion Estate, bui lt in 1873, contributes to the beauty of your wedding day by offering a unique, vintage setting for both your wedding ceremony and reception. The Jacob Henry Mansion, the flagship of our Estate, is known for its Gilded Age architecture, decadent hand carved woodwork, and lavish decoration.

A winding path leads from the Mansion, through the Gardens, to the Old Central Church. Built in 1895 of locally excavated limestone, The Old Central Church’s splendor includes three stained glass windows, and its original 2,000-pipe organ played over 100 years ago when the Old Central Church was the most prominent congregation in Joliet.

Directly next to the Church, is the Ballroom. The Ballroom was built in 1903, and is able to comfortably seat up to 300 guests.

From an era of wealth, opulence, and romance is a historic Estate. The Mansion, Ballroom, Church, and Gardens will make your wedding celebration an unforgettable experience.
