    Duke Mansion was a DREAM! There's no where else to get married but HERE!

    We were absolutely blown away by The Duke Mansion - this venue exceeded our expectation on every account! We worked with both Laura and Savanah, who answered every single question we had with patience, professionalism and detail during the planning process. We left every meeting feeling reassured and comforted that our wedding would go without a hitch, and it did!! The food, the staff, the grounds and the service were all 5-star. The minute we stepped into the Mansion for our wedding weekend, we felt right at home from all the lovely hospitality. Our guests and family were so impressed by the venue and even noted our wedding was "the wedding of the millennium!" We cannot wait to go back and stay for our anniversaries as this will always be a very, very special place in our hearts.

    The Duke Mansion was a fantastic choice for our wedding ceremony and party and we highly recommend it as a wedding venue! From the great staff (including Ginnie Little, the Social Conference Services Manager, who managed our wedding) to the beautiful grounds and delicious food, the Duke Mansion was the perfect place for our wedding. Additionally, having 20 guest rooms on site was incredibly beneficial for our family and close friends who were able to be near us during all of the festivities. The Duke Mansion staff were very helpful and communicative throughout the entire process and it made our big day seamless when it finally arrived!

    I had my bridal portraits taken at Duke Mansion in April. It was an absolutely stunning venue to have my pictures taken. I worked with Cinthya in setting this up. She was responsive, helpful and informative.

    We did look at the Duke Mansion for a wedding venue. Although it would be a beautiful spot to have a wedding, as a host you are required to fill all of the rooms (I don't remember how many, maybe 20 or so). If you don't fill them all you are responsible for paying for those unused rooms. We couldn't guarantee our guests would book there and we didn't want to be stuck with this cost. You can also only have 150 guests- this wouldn't have been an issue for us but obviously would be if you have a larger guest count.
