    Pandemic Perfection

    Katherine was simply phenomenal to work with during our whole wedding planning process, but went the extra mile to make sure my husband and I, our guests, our vendors, and their staff were comfortable and safe during our pandemic wedding in July. She arranged our COVID seating well ahead of time AND texted photos of what it would look like. She's so friendly and responsive, and I'm so glad we were able to still have a beautiful, safe wedding at Semple.

    Stunning Venue

    My husband and I are so lucky to have been able to be married at the Semple Mansion. Katherine and her staff are top notch and excellent at what they do. Our wedding day was perfect and we got comments from all of our guests about the venue and how amazing it is! My only frustration was that they are allowed (states in the contract you sign) to show off the venue to prospective customers during your wedding day up until noon. So that was a little annoying when we were trying to get everything set up. Other than that- we had a wonderful time. Perfect venue.

    the perfect wedding venue!

    SEMPLE MANSION:
    I got married in early November and the mansion was cozy and charming while also being so elegant. I planned my wedding from a different state and Katherine (the ) was amazing at responding to my million questions and worries. Semple’s staff is hands on and makes the day run so smoothly. I went with the in-house decor vendor (Positively Charmed), which was so beautiful. I can’t recommend enough!
