    Gorgeous Micro Wedding Venue

    We used this venue for our micro wedding ceremony and could not have been happier. The venue is absolutely gorgeous- our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful this location is. While we didn’t work much with the venue since our wedding planner took care of things, our interactions with Glenn the event coordinator were great. We utilized the ballroom for our ceremony, atrium for champagne toast, upstairs for couple photos, and outdoor space for family photos. Highly recommend!

    The Anderson House was the absolute perfect place for us to have our wedding. The House has a courtyard area, which was perfect for an outdoor ceremony. We hosted the cocktail hour in the gallery upstairs, which has beautiful tapestries and other works of art. During the cocktail hour, the House provided two docents (at a very reasonable cost) to answer guests questions about the house and art. We then held the reception in the ballroom, which is absolutely breathtaking.

    Glenn, who is in charge of the venue's events, was extremely helpful throughout the planning process. He was happy to accommodate our personal visits and walkthroughs with our vendors. At the walkthroughs he provided ideas of set-ups/lay outs/space usage/etc. that he had seen in previous events, which really helped us visualize our wedding and make decisions.

    Overall it was a wonderful place to get married and I would not change a thing!

    We had originally planned on getting married at the St. Regis but after a series of unexpected (& ugly) renovations, a disastrous tasting, etc. we realized that it was no longer the place for us. This was 2 MONTHS before our wedding date so my God, Anderson House was a complete Godsend in our time of need. The house, also a museum, is GORGEOUS (nicer than the st. Regis), rich with history & beautifully maintained. Glenn, who runs the place, is THE NICEST guy & though not always easily accessible, was responsive, clear & concise about venue use, rules, and getting us all the necessary information we needed to get the ball rolling quickly. If you are looking for a beautiful place that will be there for years to come, look no further.
    A few things to consider. It is lovely to have the dinner indoors but it would definitely be for a smaller party as it's tight. We had 125 people w/ dinner outdoors and then shifted the party inside.
    1. You can only have one set of doors open to the garden at night & since you can't have amplified music outside b/c of the neighbors, our dj had to blast the music inside & it was really only heard by the guests seated closest to the doors. People seated to the far side of the garden & even our table, didn't really hear the music. Something to consider.
    2. It was a gorgeous night out & as such, it's hard to get everyone to stay indoors for the dancing & dessert aspect of the party. Even with 125 guests, it did at times feel a little empty indoors since many were enjoying the lovely weather & garden. Another thing to be mindful of if you really want a dance party.
    3. You can only have the venue from 5 - 11 (sharp!) - this time frame wasn't so bad in the end. We paid for an extra hour of set up & access for photos & it was worth is. To be honest, I wish we'd taken more time for photos!
    4. The Fairfax next door is super convenient for your guests to stay at. Urbana down the street was our brunch venue & also fantasti
