    Our Wedding was absolutely amazing thanks to Eileen & her staff!! The mansion is gorgeous & very well kept so we barely had to decorate besides centerpieces, etc. They take care of everything from setting up, cooking, coordinating, cleaning up...it’s really perfect because the bridal party & families can enjoy themselves!

    The mansion is a beautiful location. If you don't have lots of extra money to decorate, the Columbus Hall requires very little and is still beautiful. In fact, less is more, in my opinion.
    Elaine and the staff were incredibly flexible and accommodating. They were professional and unobtrusive also. Things went about seamlessly. My family and guests enjoyed the beauty that that mansion provides both inside and out.
    The venue itself is affordable. They worked with us regarding the food menu, also reasonably priced. The food was outstanding. I highly recommend the salmon with creamy dill sauce!
