Facilities and Capacity
This lovely mansion venue, set upon a garden landscape, welcomes up to 200 guests for a couple’s big day. The brick facade of this house, with black shutters and white accents, makes a charming backdrop for wedding portraits or a ceremony. Couples can choose to hold their ceremony under the shade of the white gazebo or on the patio laid with stone underfoot. Shrubbery surrounds both of these romantic locations and the mansion is visible from either option. Receptions can then take place in the Birkby House’s grand flowing tent. This tent, made of delicate and airy fabric, features a paved flooring with bricks and cement, with a black and white checkerboard tile dance floor. Sparkling crystal chandeliers overhead add a touch of class to this space. The tent also offers open side spaces or plastic windows to let in natural light. The draped fabric overhead and all around makes for graceful wedding photographs.
