History

This historic mansion was built in 1888 on a tract of land originally known as Dulaney’s Lot, which has a rich history tracing back to 1724. The land was granted to General Otho Williams in the 1780s. Upon it, he built the Ceresville grist mill, the original Mansion house, and a sawmill. Edward Shriner, who bought the property from Williams in 1816, built the Ceresville Mansion in 1888 as a wedding anniversary gift to his wife.

    Like having professional family organize your wedding

    The team at Cersville is so responsive and helpful when something comes up. Planning during Covid was rough, but everyone was very flexible and understanding. We had to make changes up to the day before and they had no problem rolling with it. Social faux pas abound were handled with grace during our event, and when EMTs were needed the day of, our event coordinator was great at keeping things together and keeping myself and my husband updated without having to give up our day to the unexpected circumstances.

    The on-site catering and food service is fantastic; everything is delicious and the staff is so thoughtful. We needed a break for a bit in the chaos and without being prompted they not only got us food and drinks to a private room, but the head chef even came to check on our personal situation, not just the food. It was just so thoughtful and kind and made our day feel magical despite all the things that could, and did, go wrong at no fault of the Ceresville staff.

    I've wanted to get married here since I was a little girl, and Ceresville did not disappoint.

    Beautiful Venue - the Total Package!

    I cannot recommend the Ceresville Mansion highly enough. We were originally supposed to get married there on May 3, 2020, and with the initial shutdowns due to COVID, we had to reschedule to September 13, 2020 with about six weeks notice. The staff here were so incredibly helpful every step of the way. We worked primarily with Alison, but even when she was on vacation for a week the staff member who filled in for her (Ali K.) was top-notch. They are incredibly prompt in all of their communications and very patient in answering our (what felt like hundreds of) questions. The space is gorgeous, the outdoor areas are picturesque and well maintained, and the food was absolutely delicious. This place really is a package deal and 100% worth the cost.
