We recently got married at the Burden and Kahn mansions and we cannot sing their praises high enough! We hosted 150 guests. Our wedding ceremony was in the Theater of the Kahn Mansion, followed by a cocktail hour in its Courtyard. Our reception was split between the various rooms of the Burden Mansion. We sat our guests in both the Banquet Hall and the Ballroom, and setup the band and dance floor in the Ballroom as well. We setup our bar and a couple of high top cocktail tables in the Music Room, which was a perfect area for people to enter through and mingle in. The entirety of both Mansions is beautiful and stunning. Our photographs from throughout the evening look amazing. The venue coordinator, Dana, and her staff were great to work with from start to finish. We fell in love with the mansions on our initial visit, and were able to go back for several walk thoughts with our family and vendors as our planning progressed. Dana really knows what works best in the spaces, and was a great resource to us throughout our planning and during the execution of our day. Our only regret is that we cannot get married there again!Sent on 09/29/2019

Gorgeous and personal venue
My husband and I were planning to have a relatively small wedding. We know we hate typical wedding venue or hotels (esp. those with purple lights). We wanted something classy and elegant. The Otto Kahn mansions is the first place and only we saw and we finalized the venue in a week. All the guests were amazed by the place - it’s just so gorgeous and full of history. Dana is the most wonderful person to work with. She is responsive and very transparent with all the details. We are so lucky to get married there. (Also, they don’t charge you extra on a Saturday. All the fees are simple, transparent, basically just per hour!) love it!Sent on 05/24/2019
