    Getting married at the mansion wasn't the plan until we walked in. Then we couldn't picture our day anywhere else. Katherine and Breanna were great. The mansion is absolutely stunning. Every angel every room every season. If you want an entire place with lots of rooms all for you, this is it. It's old, its stylish, its GORGEOUS. It has a personality all it's own. The vibe was so on point for our theme. Nowhere could have been it but there. It has a library for quite conversation and cake, a big bar for socializing and drinking, a beautiful and ornate ballroom for dancing or eating or both! The staircase will take your breath away its perfection for pictures and for that big moment when your guests first see you. There's a billiards room so the boys have something to do and don't get into too much trouble. And a bridal suite that is so bridal! This place is pricey but that's because it's perfect.

    Having our wedding at Semple Mansion was the BEST decision we could have made. The mansion itself is stunning and perfectly matched our Gatsby-inspired wedding vision. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was and how perfectly intimate our 183+ wedding felt (which can be a hard thing to pull off in many other venues). Plus, the price is definitely reasonable and they offer 10 different catering options, in addition to allowing mansion access (throughout the entire mansion) all day long. One major reason we chose Semple over other mansions is because they didn't nickel and dime us for "extra hours" before 3pm - instead, their rate was up front and 100% fair, which we really appreciated. Beyond that, the staff (especially Katherine!) was phenomenal. They were incredibly helpful with any questions we had, and throughout the entire night, Katherine was there to lend a hand. Plus, the transitions between floors for different parts of the evening was flawless. Our wedding was absolute perfection and we highly recommend Semple to anyone looking for a venue!!

    Our family had a wonderful experience @ the Semple Mansion. The staff was incredible with hospitality. They were very kind, attentive, congenial, professional, and worked very hard to fulfill your wishes. Kathryn and Sophia worked as a team and represented each other with dignity and grace. The entire day from morning til midnight was magical. We loved the mansion and its beauty and splendor. The bridal suite was especially enchanting and sweet for the bridal party to prepare for the ceremony. The guests were completely inspired by the immediate beauty of the venue. We also loved the ease of the reception being in the ballroom. It too was magnificent, gorgeous, and lovely! We have absolutely no regrets to share about the Semple Mansion. Truly divine!
