    The mansion and grounds have been completely transformed and updated. We booked at the start of their renovation and were absolutely impressed with the results. The outdoor wedding site behind the mansion is one of the most beautiful outdoor venues I have ever seen...our photos are spectacular. With the flexibility of moving the wedding into the ballroom for inclement weather....it was a no brainer. The ballroom is stunning and the other rooms are beautiful. I would say you have to see it to believe it. This review was from the mother of the bride.

    Great experience

    We had our reception at Black Iris and it was overall a good experience and I would absolutely choose them again. The food was great - our guests especially enjoyed the butternut squash soufflé! The facilities are beautiful and provided the perfect backdrop for our special day.
