We had an amazing experience having our morning wedding at Wilder Mansion. Heather, the event coordinator, was amazing and took care of every detail. The day went so well because of the staff at Wilder!

Wilder Mansion came as a complete surprise to us! We understood it was available for events/parties, but had no true experience with skilled professionals engaging in thoughtful, interested, success in a big party and reception in a Park District venue! Our whole experience was peppered with great people...Meagan, Heather, Lisa...each provided the security required to simply permit us to let go and know that our reception and party would be absolutely fabulous. We had 200 people join us, and, as the head count grew, this planning team simply expanded with ideas and follow up! We would be very happy to serve as references in any social media and/or promotion for the Mansion, as it is a beautiful and elegant building managed by unusually strong professionals very well. With gratitude for all of you! Will forward photos as we receive them formally. Anna and Patti
