A romantic and intimate setting is the beauty that is within the Stetson Mansion property. The mansion is not a typical wedding venue, it is the personal home of a very fun and detail oriented couple. If you notice, there aren't many reviews. And that is because it is their actual home where not many weddings have been held (I think maybe 12 in the past 10 years or so). It is an exclusive venue which is why it is a little pricier, and we were honored to have our special day there.
When my husband and I walked onto the property, we instantly fell in love. The property is ABSOLUTELY breath taking; filled with history and so unique. Describing it, and even pictures, cannot do it proper justice. You have to see it for yourself. I have been to the property upwards of 5 or 6 times now, and I still find something new each time I go. The craftsmanship put into every room, every floor, every stained glass window will be the perfect setting for your wedding day pictures. And that is just the property...
The owners, JT and Michael, and Robin, their event coordinator (AKA Momma Bird!), were so great to work with. Robin is the sweetest and most responsive person I have ever met. She is there for you for everything, and keeps track of the details with you. She is such a genuine and kind person who I loved working with. I will say, they have standards (like no folding chairs, no plasticware of any kind, hired event planner required, etc), but that is because they want the best of the best. My husband and I planned on higher quality items and a wedding planner so this was no big deal for us. The mansion holds a max number of 120 as well, so it is perfect for those who want an intimate wedding with maybe more expensive taste. That being said, we had a budget of $23,000 and our wedding turned out beautiful! The setting of your wedding makes a HUGE impression on your guests, and I highly recommend the Stetson Mansion as your venue.

I didn’t just get married on May 15, 2016; I experienced true rapture for the first time in my life.
That “vision” a girl has of her wedding day was not only realized, but it took on a new set of wings. The reason I am still floating – writing this weeks later – is because of - the Stetson Mansion.
The Mansion was our castle that evening. My bridesmaids and I settled into our very own bridal suite upstairs, allowing us prime real estate to peek at the guests arriving below. Our amenities included full-length mirrors and make-up lighting, lighting that – ah hem – was originally wired by Thomas Edison himself!
We never had to worry about the guys seeing us, as their prep room was in the School House, located right there on property. The ol’ School House is now reminiscent of a honest-to-goodness villa.
If you know the Stetson Mansion, you know what JT and Michael pull off every year with the Christmas transformation, one that remains unmatched. So on our wedding day, they were able to conduct a “symphony” – as it felt – pulling off a flow that I was unable to envision prior.
The Mansion also thought of putting a dance floor on the putt-putt green out front! Lined with cushy chairs and a gazebo for the band, guests had comfy viewing for all of the big dances. For those who wanted more “quiet time,” tables were dressed throughout the grounds and on the pool deck. We were at one venue, but it felt like 3 “themed” areas. It was… awesome.
Ladies, I wanted a non-pretentious, but uniquely elegant outdoor wedding. The Stetson Mansion allowed me to star in a fairy tale – a feeling I’d never realized before. In these past few weeks, the comment I’ve gotten the most from our guests is that it was the one wedding that – thankfully – had them them in mind. We chose to avoid the stiffness of some wedding traditions, and I feel this allowed our loved ones to kick their feet up, eat, drink, and dance in what I hope was - a glorified happy hour;)

Michael and J.T. are amazing to work with. They made my husband and I feel as though we were the only people in the world. Everything about our day was perfect and it all started with this gorgeous venue. Very classically beautiful with the fountain, carriage house, and stetson mansion in the background. We are very lucky to have had our wedding there.
