Wonderfully Southern May 2019 Wedding
Our wedding at Ravenswood Mansion was a dream of a day. They are thorough with communication, expectations, and their rules and regulations. Which, made our day go smoothly. They have someone on sight the entire day to help with "What can I dos" and overall management of the day. The property itself is breathtakingly beautiful. It makes for a romantic backdrop for a wedding. They have a suite for both Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, so you don't have to worry about where to get ready. It is close to SEVERAL churches, but we chose to get married on the property. The venue is so beautiful, that you don't need a ton of decorations. They have some rentals on the property, so you save lots of $$. There are so many places to take photos from the spiral staircase, to the outside property, to even the inside of the mansion. You just can not go wrong!! We loved everything about working with Ravenswood, and everything about our wonderful day! I highly recommend this venue for your big day, because mine was perfect!Sent on 06/04/2019

Ravenswood was perfect. The house and grounds are beautiful. Abby was amazing to work with. My husband and I are so thankful for the entire team at Ravenswood. It was super affordable and we had the entire mansion and grounds from 8am-11pm. I wish we could have kept the music on past 10pm, but I understand that it is a public park with reasonable rules. The grounds are pet-friendly but no pets are allowed inside the mansion.Sent on 09/20/2018
