    Absolutely Amazing

    After rescheduling our big wedding twice due to COVID, my now husband and I decided that we didn't want to wait any longer to get married. So we decided to do a small ceremony and celebration with just our bridal party and immediate family and the big wedding next year with our original plans. After researching I came across the Felt Mansion and thought it was so beautiful and the perfect spot for our smaller celebration. We rented the Carriage House and from start to finish Derrick was absolutely incredible to work with! He answered all of my questions in a timely manner (and there were a lot) and was just so helpful and friendly.

    On the day of the grounds were absolutely stunning, the carriage house had a beautiful bridal suite and grooms suite for us to get ready in and the gazebo was the perfect location for our ceremony. We even had a wedding gift waiting from Derrick and Holden when we arrived to the venue. We were also lucky and we were the only wedding on the property that day so we were able to take photos up at the big mansion and all around the grounds. Everything was so magical and I felt so lucky to have the Felt as my venue.

    I would highly recommend them! The Carriage House and Gazebo were perfect for our small ceremony but in seeing the grounds the large tent, mansion, and chapel were absolutely stunning for a larger celebration.

    Thank you so much Derrick and team for making our day so special!!!!

Venue Managers

DERRICK
Derrick brings a breadth of knowledge to his role at the estate with his experience in food and beverage management as well as theatre production and performance. He is also an event manager and event lighting designer for Holden Michael Events. When there’s a break in the summer, Derrick enjoys heading to Lake Michigan or a local Pride event and traveling with his husband in the off-season. Someday you might see him flying across stage in a local production of Tarzan, a role he’s always wanted to play.

HOLDEN
Holden worked for eight years as an event planner and designer and worked many times at the estate before being brought in as venue manager. Holden also owns Holden Michael Events, an event planning company specializing in events at private properties and non-traditional venues. When he’s not at the estate or working with a couple to plan their wedding, you may find Holden down at Phil’s Bar and Grill enjoying a gin martini and a good book or shopping in downtown Chicago before heading to a Lady Gaga concert or Lyric Opera.
