Special Day at the Mansion

The Mansion on Delaware is a beautiful venue and perfect for making your event feel special and intimate!
We loved that we had the option to rent out the Mansion and have our guests centered around the venue. The staff was so great during the wedding but also throughout our guests’ stay. We loved chatting with everyone who worked at the Mansion and they all added to our experience.
Throughout planning, Colleen was great to talk to and was knowledgeable about the venue and was great at giving advice on menu, best layout, and table styling options. It was also great when she knew some of our vendors from previous events and could give us extra confidence that they knew how to execute their jobs well at the Masion.
The food is particularly impressive at the Mansion and we had multiple guests tell us afterwards that they were surprised at how well they were able to execute wedding food (especially fish!). Guests staying at the Mansion also received breakfast which was delicious.
We especially wanted our venue to have lodging options and historic features and if either of those or quality food are important to you, I would highly recommend!

Reception Venue

Overall we are very pleased with MODA. The culinary professionals and coordinators were outstanding. Our wedding reception flowed effortlessly and the food, decor, and vibes were spot on (elegant, classy). Colleen is a joy to work with! One of the rooms my MOA stayed in had a few malfunctions, phone not working and no robes available but these are minor things. Otherwise, 10/10 experience. What a historically classy and graceful venue!

Beautiful Place for a Reception

The venue was the perfect setting for our wedding of just under 100 guests. It was intimate but the tables weren't on top of each other. Having the cocktail hour outside on the terrace was absolutely beautiful. The butlers serving wine and appetizers was a nice touch. The food was outstanding and the dessert table display was phenomenal. The menu had a variety of options including Buffalo favorites & twists on classic comfort food. The Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Tomato Soup Shooters was a crowd favorite. The staff and the coordinators that we worked with were wonderful. They were responsive to our requests and emails were answered in a timely fashion. I would definitely recommend this venue.
