Best day of our lives!!

The Howey Mansion was everything we wanted for our wedding and MORE. My husband and I were engaged in January of 2020, so right before COVID changed everything. Originally, we wanted a small family wedding and wanted to take a trip to Italy where my family is from. Unfortunately, with COVID putting a halt to travel plans, we quickly realized that wouldn’t be possible and that we’d need a venue here to accommodate more family/friends than intended. After some research, my mother found the Howey Mansion and we instantly fell in love with the photos. We scheduled a tour and it was our first and only stop on the wedding venue search. As soon as we pulled up, we knew we wanted to get married there.

Lori and the staff were always so attentive and answered all of my (many) questions and (many) emails. As we approached the wedding it seemed like I was emailing more than twice a day, and they were always quick to respond and informative.

Arthur’s catering was an absolute joy to have with the venue and the food was so delicious!! There were options for everyone and the hors d'oeuvres were so fun!! We received so many compliments on how good the food was. I was lucky enough to get to try both entrees and I must say, the chicken was the best chicken I’ve ever had.

We got the package that granted us access to the mansion at 11 am and it was so incredibly worth it. The vendors had more than enough time to set up and allowed both bridal parties and parents to get ready with ease. I also enjoyed seeing everything come together throughout the day!

This same package also included access to the prohibition room for the last two hours of the event and it was such a hit with our guests! It’s definitely one of the most unique features I’ve ever seen at a wedding and everyone really enjoyed it. The mansion is so beautiful that there are so many areas for our guests to explore which I really loved. It’s hard to put into words how unique the venue is, especially for a wedding.

We also opted to have the wedding party spend the night in the mansion and the two guest cottages and it was SO MUCH FUN. We kept the fun going and were well taken care of with accommodations such as towels, toiletries and more than enough beds for 18+ people. Fran was so helpful with getting all of the overnight guests to their rooms and with checking out in the morning. She had some great history stories about the mansion as well.

All this to say that our wedding day was even more perfect than we could have ever envisioned. We had a beautiful Mediterranean theme as we wanted but also got to celebrate with all of our friends and family in a beautiful ceremony, at a gorgeous venue with incredible food and drinks!

We’ve had so many of our guests tell us that it was the best and most beautiful wedding they’d ever been to and even some family who have already looked into renting the venue out for other events.

I’m almost in tears as I write this because of how perfect and dream-like our day was. I’m so sad that it’s over but the memories made at the mansion are ones that my new husband and I will cherish for the rest of our lives!

Beautiful fairytale location

This is the perfect venue to have a wedding that feels surreal. It is one of the most romantic venues FLorida has to offer (in my opinion) and you will definitely not regret it once you see your pictures. The historical mansion is not only beautiful on its own but has many different options to choose from for both the ceremony area as well as reception indoor or outdoor. Lori was amazing throughout the whole process, always keeping open communication with us whenever we had questions or concerns. And helping us with special requests. Fran was also amazing during the day off, helping make sure everything ran smoothly as well as saving some appetizers for us to try after our pictures. I highly recommend this beautiful venue.

Stunning venue

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at this absolutely gorgeous location. Lori and her team were very accommodating to our vision of a micro brunch wedding. Everything was phenomenal..both of our families and my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Get married here!
