    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!

    Had my DREAM wedding at The Howey Mansion

    I had both my ceremony and reception (Indian wedding, two different days) at The Howey Mansion, and I truly had the most magical wedding weekend I could ever dream of.

    Tasha and the mansion staff went above and beyond for my husband and me. They were incredibly accommodating of our cultural needs and were flexible with us.

    The shining moment for us is when our reception venue abruptly shut down two weeks before our wedding (Noah's Event Venue, a mess). Tasha saw my Facebook post and immediately started trying to help me before I even contacted her. She offered me use of the mansion for both days, for an extremely reduced fee, let me keep every single vendor I had already booked, and worked with me to reorganize my wedding reception. She absolutely didn't have to do that and the fact that she did just proves the level of commitment they have to their clients. On the day of the wedding, several things went wrong with vendors and I wasn't even aware because they worked so hard with my coordinator to ensure that my husband and I had the perfect wedding.

    The mansion is absolutely stunning, and I couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. Everything from the venue itself, to the staff, to the service... incredible.

    The Howey Mansion's reply:

    Amanda, it was honestly our delight to not spend just one but two beautiful and amazing days with you and Dustin! From start to finish you were so sweet and amazing to work with, we couldn't have asked for a better planning process with a bride! We've had the pleasure of seeing your sneak peeks and your video and we are so excited to get to relive the day over and over
