Meticulously restored to its original splendor, the first floor of the mansion offers various spaces that can accommodate intimate dinner groups or large wedding receptions.

Graceful chandeliers, original hand-carved wooden hutches and tables and intricate hand-painted ceilings all add to the historical significance and allure of this beautiful home.


Gorgeous Venue - Fairytale Wedding - An Eventective User from Jacksonville

The mansion and gardens offer history and character in addition to its beautiful interior and exterior grounds. This venue was perfect for our wedding and able to accommodate 225 guests well for a sit down dinner. Everyone was talking about how elegant and gorgeous this venue was! The food was amazing and many guests commented on how delicious all the food was. The presentation of the dining room decor was just as I specified and everyone received a perfectly hot and well cooked meal (we all loved the hors d'oeuvres, dinner and late night snacks!). The staff was beyond helpful before the event and on the day of. I could not ask for anyone better than Courtney Hassan, she is spectacular! Responsive to emails and able to meet with us several times before the event, she is truly wonderful to work with. The mansion staff was great the day of, plenty of servers, bartenders and 2 bridal attendants, it really is the star treatment for the bride and all the guests. I can't stop talking about how wonderful our wedding was! Thank you to everyone at Epping! The beautiful grounds and awesome staff make this venue special.
