The Ross Mansion in Seaford, Delaware is a most beautiful backdrop for a wedding &/or reception. We held our daughter's wedding reception there as a tented event and it was nothing short of beautiful. Mr. Bill Messenger was the "man in the know" and made certain our night was bullet-proof. When we returned to the Mansion on the next evening, all was gone and it was if it never had happened. The only thing was left was a zillion fireflies dancing across the front lawn. However, memories of a beautiful bride, her handsome groom, family and friends enjoying a fantastic celebration will live on in our hearts and minds forever. This will forever be a beautiful memory and we sincerely give thanks for this beautiful setting and making this an unforgettable evening.
