The Z Mansion is a wonderful place to have a wedding. It is so beautiful inside a garden oasis in the middle of the city. It was one of the funnest weddings I've been to. The staff there was Great.
Victorian Mansion owned by the Hill family. Could not ask for a more accomodating group to plan and host the wedding. Beautiful venue full of amazing architechtural detail and elegant touches. Bride gets upstairs suite to get ready in, while the groom has a basement wine cellar. Plenty of character with much history if you are so inclined. Patio is the best, a private shaded retreat in the heart of downtown. Plenty of space for over 100 guests. Beautiful come evening time with the twinkle lights wrapped around the tree trunks. Another fun part is the transition from ceremony to dinner, all the guests are herded out front for a huge group photo. Great for checking the thank you list afterwards : ) Parking lot directly across the street makes it easy for guests. Was able to make payments rather then put down the entire sum to reserve for the night, which was a great help financially. Even got to use the venue for free for rehearsal the day prior. The Hill family has been doing this for some time so they are very familiar with most of the caterers and vendors you may wish to use. Makes everything run super smooth and not much effort on your part. Can even buy packages with everything put together for you, just pick out flowers, color scheme, menu, and a few other layout options. Last minute bailout by our original caterer was all taken in stride and a beautiful handoff with a company that regularly works at the Z Mansion. Could not have asked for more.
