About

Up to 700 guests

Located in Monroe, Wisconsin, Ludlow Mansion Events is a wedding venue offering couples a historical setting for their celebrations. The property has been the center of elaborate soirees and celebrations since 1857. You and your partner can plan a customized ceremony and reception complemented by the estate’s magnificent natural surroundings.

Facilities and Capacity

The venue offers couples a choice of two intimate outdoor spaces to hold their ceremony. They can welcome guests onto an expansive front porch, taking full advantage of the stately mansion in the background. Alternatively, the happy couple can exchange vows in front of loved ones before the grand pergola. Complete with dazzling string lights, this delicate garden space is versatile in theme and can be decorated to suit weddings both rustic and elegant. Couples have the use of the pergola, porch, and encompassing grounds on the day of their choice to entertain guests and celebrate the new beginnings. The facility also contains tables and classic resin chairs for up to 200 people. Alternatively, those who would rather hold their celebrations within the walls of the sophisticated property can set up in the Carriage Hall and Parlor. The hall accommodates up to 300 guests and offers an old-world setting, characterized by vaulted ceilings, natural lighting, and access to traditional barn doors. Couples can use the property for ten hours on the day, as well as an additional three hours of rehearsal time. For those who plan to hold a grand celebration for all their loved ones, the entire property can be secured for a specified weekend. The mansion can also provide access to get-ready rooms so the wedding party can peacefully prepare for the big day.

Services Offered

Ludlow Mansion Events offers a number of packages to the happy couple planning their wedding. Services include two on-site professional coordinators on the day, bar service, decor, and more. Due to the venue’s open vendor policy, couples can enjoy a delicious meal prepared by a caterer of their choice in the on-site kitchen. The professional staff at the mansion can also supply an arch, provide various audiovisual equipment, arrange table decor, and arrange other small details.

History

This astonishing mansion was originally maintained in the 1800s by businessman Arabut Ludlow and his wife Caroline. Known as Idle Hour Farm, it was one of Wisconsin’s primary grand agricultural estates and demonstrated many improvements in the farming techniques of the time. Additionally, the property had a reputation for training excellent race horses and has been visited by several national horse-racing champions. The mansion was returned to its former glory by Ludlow’s granddaughter May Ludlow Luchsinger and her husband Frank in the 1930s.
