    The best place for our wedding!

    We were looking for a vintage style venue with rooms to get ready and an outside location for our ceremony. This venue did not disappoint. Tricia was amazing to work with and answered all of our questions and made sure all of our requests were granted! It was a perfect day and Cheney Mansion made it even better!

    Cheney Mansion's reply:

    Hi Bailey,
    Thank you so much for your kind words and we are so happy your day was magical! Best Wishes!
    The Cheney Mansion Team!

    Just Beautiful

    There are no words to say how beautiful Cheney Mansion, who worked with Premier Catering on how beautiful they styled and designed at my wedding table decor and food menu. The food was even beautiful. The venue stood out from others and were so different, from having a outside wedding, using the greenhouse and then enjoying the historical history behind the home. They made sure they were on time and got everything done without bothering me; the bride. When I walked into the venue, I was shocked, surprised and happy to see what was created. Thank you so much for making my night wonderful.

    The perfect mansion

    Cheney Mansion was the perfect venue for us. After scouring through places, prices, and availability online it was among the top of my list. We did a walk through and had a soft hold on a date for a couple of weeks. With the overwhelming amount of wedding planning, I managed to not follow up by the deadline. However, it was still held and they were very flexible when I contacted them. Over the next several months they were contacted with a handful of questions every few months and always responded. We did a walkthrough the week prior to the wedding with the caterer. I was a little worried the day of about all of the moving pieces with the decorations I was bringing, the florist, the DJ, the caterer, and so forth but Susan and the staff at Cheney Mansion did an amazing job. They were real professionals who magically had everything set and knew everything that needed to be done. Everything went perfectly. The staff was so nice and helpful. The venue is gorgeous. We lucked out and it ended up being a sunny day in mid October so we were able to take advantage of the patio for cocktail hour and of the greenhouse for the ceremony. The venue grounds and inside allowed for beautiful pictures. We found it to be a unique, special, and well suited venue for what we wanted that luckily came with flexible and helpful staff!
