The Mansion, was all that I never knew I wanted in a wedding venue!!
I cannot express how wonderful The Mansion made my sons and his bride day so special. Not often do you walk into a space and words can not explain the beauty. The owner definitely has an eye for detail. The room upstairs with a balcony were the bride can get ready made my daughter in law feel like a princess. Kathy and her team were able to help put a day to remember together in less than month and a half. She is so good at her job and made me feel so confident throughout the whole planning process by quickly answering any and all questions I had. The house and its grounds have a magical quality that will make any bride and groom smile. The food was outstanding, the bartender was really sweet and accommodating to me as well as the rest of the guests! All my family members walked away with full stomaches and smiles. The price for setup, take down, food, staff, and venue was unbeatable. Choosing this venue was one of the best decisions we have made and we highly recommend it to all!Sent on 07/02/2019

Affordable flexible elegance with special touches by the owner
1. Communication - Kathy excels in prompt communication, always patiently answering my many questions, never making me feel peskySent on 05/29/2019
2. Transparency in pricing - this is invaluable when considering add-ons. The Mansion's base prices are so reasonable, that I never feared of going over budget. So flexible with things like us bringing in sparkling cider with the table numbers on them to use for our toasts. Made a dispenser of my favorite premium margarita recipe (naming it Mom-aritas :), making it more affordable to offer the open bar. Also made a dispenser of refreshing infused water that everyone raved over!
3. Outstanding chef - easily created the most scrumptious gluten free entrees. EVERYone complimented every option we had chosen.
4. Provided the table for the sweets at no charge and cut our cake and served it up for us after the initial cake cutting photo ceremony.
5. Service - everyone went on how great the wait service was, even though dinner was significantly delayed due to photographing our large family.
6. Kathy - there just aren't enough beautiful words to describe her attentiveness, her presence, her kindness, her special touches like capturing the most touching photo of my mom and I just before we walked outside to the ceremony...and printed several pictures, having two of them framed and sitting in front of us when we got to our sweetheart table.
Kathy, I can't thank you enough for making our wedding even more special.
