A perfect wedding venue!
We were obsessed with the Commander’s Mansion from the minute we took our first tour. The mansion itself is gorgeous and a perfect setting for photos and cocktails. We had our reception in the tent behind the mansion, which was a perfect setting for dinner and lots of dancing!Sent on 10/08/2019
Tammy was fantastic to work with! She was incredibly responsive and made our day feel so special and personal to us. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting for our specula day!

Very happy with my choice of venue! The Commander's Mansion was a beautiful site and the use of the grape arbor, mansion, and tent worked out perfectly. I wanted to be sure we chose a venue accessible for wheelchairs and elderly guests, and this fit the bill, especially since the tent has solid brick underfoot rather than grass. Tammy was easy to work with and made planning a breeze. The rental fee was reasonable compared to other venues in the area, and the list of catering options was extensive enough to create real competition - we had no problem finding one we liked without spending a mint. Getting liquor from Gordon's was also a steal compared to some of the quotes I received from other venues that require beverage packages. All in all I wanted flexibility to shop around for vendors instead of having everything dictated in-house by the venue (where they'll also dictate the price, and it won't come cheap!). The Commander's Mansion was perfect.Sent on 09/28/2019

Perfect venue for garden party wedding
We felt so fortunate to find this hidden gem of a venue in Watertown! You have access to the entire historic home and grounds when you book your wedding here. The coordinators work with you to format your perfect day, whether you want to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour, or if you want to use their beautiful tent for the reception. Our guests raved about all the natural beauty of the grounds, and the exquisite interior of the home. Keep in mind, this is just a venue. Meaning, you are responsible for hiring all outside vendors (food, music, flowers, bartenders/servers, day of coordination), which can be a lot more work than other venues, but it also allows for more flexibility. Gina and Tammy were always available by e-mail and easy to communicate with! The venue also hosts an annual wedding showcase every spring, which was super fun and is were we found many of our vendors!Sent on 07/15/2019
