Facilities and Capacity
The 10,554-square-foot Woodhaven Mansion sits on a large and lush property, where a long driveway brings guests to the secluded manor. Guests are dropped off in the circular driveway set with flowers, where they will then be ushered into the modern French chateau. Inside, they will find a stone entranceway, replete with a grand staircase and salon, where an intimate ceremony can be held. The property boasts a large living area decorated with elegant furniture, twinkling chandeliers, and a fireplace, which can also double as a ceremony space. An open-plan kitchen with an antique-inspired island allows for a caterer to prepare the reception dinner, or for loved ones to cook a day-after brunch. Game and billiard rooms feature TVs and a full bar, and are great for guests to mingle, get ready, and socialize while enjoying cocktails. Other amenities include a spa, complete with a steam room and a dry sauna; and three more fireplaces. Outside, couples will find a roomy backyard where an outdoor ceremony or reception can be held. A swimming pool and hot tub also add to the ambiance, and are excellent for relaxing at a wedding shower or engagement party.
The Woodhaven Mansion comes with an event team who is happy to work with couples to make all their wedding dreams come true. An event caterer is provided to deliver delicious and spectacular meals to rehearsal dinners, receptions, and showers. Catering can be served in the dining area as well as on the back patio and in the pool area. A tent can also be erected on the lawn for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. The mansion has seven suites for overnight accommodations, all of which come with rich furnishings. The Grand Suite is outfitted with a chandelier, beautiful bay windows, a walk-in closet with a retro vanity, and a dazzling ensuite bathroom.
