    Excellent venue

    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.

    Stunning Venue

    Commander's Mansion is such a beautiful venue. Our summer wedding pictures were stunning with the Commander's Mansion grounds as the backdrop. We had great communication with Gina and Tammy leading up to the wedding and all of their recommended vendors were a pleasure to work with as well! Gina and Tammy coordinated with all of the vendors to make sure everything went smoothly the day of and keep our stress levels down. I highly recommend this venue for a wedding or any other special event.
