Why We Like This Place

  • Authentic building materials were shipped across the Atlantic to create this fairytale manor, which was intended to showcase the original owners’ collection of medieval European antiques, artwork, and artifacts. The home’s got lots of star power, too—it’s been featured in many movies, and was the site of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett’s wedding. 
  • Ceremonies may be held in the charming cloistered garden, followed by a reception in the home’s exquisite gallery, where you’ll find delicately carved wood, exquisitely detailed stained glass, and a spiral staircase with a railing of ornate wrought iron.
  • You’re granted exclusive use of the property for the entire day, ensuring total privacy. You’ll also have access to a well-appointed Bridal Room for dressing, and a Children’s Room, which you can set up with games and movies to entertain the little ones during the festivities.
