I absolutely LOVED my wedding at the Felt Mansion! I had always dreamed of a romantic, vintage wedding and this venue made my dreams come true! I had my ceremony in the front of the chapel, cocktail hour in the Mansion, and the reception in the onsite tent for about 200 people. Guests raved about how beautiful the whole venue was. They said that cocktail hour flew by because they had so much fun exploring all 3 floors of the Mansion and the grounds. Thank you so much for everything, Felt Mansion!Sent on 06/21/2018

Prepare to be enchanted! We had a magical wedding at The Felt Estate. The property is immaculate, sprawling with natural beauty and meticulously groomed grounds. The beautiful and expansive mansion is welcoming for all guests to enjoy and explore. But, the best part...our event went off without a hitch all in part to the amazing support of Holden and Derrick, the estate’s coordinators. I have never experienced such proactive support and guidance from a venue. Their passion for the venue brought out all the best and I could never thank them enough for keeping everyone where they needed to be and everything planned perfectly.Sent on 06/01/2019
