Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Enter the Gilded Age at this one-time estate of lumber baron David Whitney, where no expense was spared. Clad in pink granite, with a rotunda, arches, spires, 52 rooms and 20 fireplaces, it's a pretty cool place for a Gatsby-esque wedding.
  • Indoors or out, their ceremony sites are stunning. The Whitney Garden, bursting with seasonal blooms, features a great fountain. And what can top the rich carved woods and 4-panel, Tiffany stained-glass backdrop of the mansion's second-story landing?
  • A myriad of elegant rooms, posh menus, and a historic ambiance gives you so many choices for your reception. Include a High Tea or Dessert Parlor shower, nightcap in the Ghostbar Lounge, or live the fantasy and take over the whole property for your affair.
