  • This showstopping 1905 Georgian-colonial mansion, located in the Highland Avenue Historic District, provides a gorgeous example of neoclassical architecture, with a massive portico supported by columns and a red brick façade that provides a striking contrast.
  • There are multiple ceremony sites to choose from, such as the Gazebo Garden, the back patio, the front lawn, and the meticulously restored interior of the house, which features dark wood paneling, sparkling chandeliers, and white marble flooring.
  • Private preparation suites for both wedding parties are a part of every package. A variety of tables, white padded chairs for outdoor use, gold Chiavari chairs for indoor use, on-site staff members, and setup and cleanup are also included.
