What Couples are Saying:

“EVERY SINGLE COUPLE SHOULD GET MARRIED HERE! We cannot say enough about how amazing our experience was — From start to finish, we are over the moon and so thankful we choose Jacob Henry Mansion. We worked very closely with Amanda, who you might as well just call Superwoman! She made our day come together in the most amazing way… We can’t thank her enough! At the tasting I ordered a few chicken/fish options. All were tasty, but they just didn’t “wow” us. It’s like Amanda knew and had an extra plate of Stuffed Chicken (yum) and Beef Tenderloin (double yum). We ended up using those two plates for our entree options and our guests RAVED about the Beef Tenderloin! I mean top-tier, absolutely delicious food! We opted for an open bar throughout the night and I can honestly say there was never a line… Ever! Our bartenders (part of the Jacob Henry team) were part of the party in the most professional sense. Both myself and my hubby, as well as all of our guests, LOVED them! Amanda and her team also did our aisle decorations and centerpieces for us. I’m a control freak so I was worried about how everything would turn out, but everything was BEAUTIFUL! My expectations were far exceeded. The amount of time and effort that the Jacob Henry Mansion team poured into our day seemed endless, and it took so much stress off of us. I felt 100% in control of the day, but I didn’t feel like I was losing all my hair in the process. Oh and one of my favorite parts, Amanda even helped bustle my dress for me! It seriously was the BEST costumer service you could ever want! We had every question answered in a timely fashion (less than 24 hrs), and all of our requests were met… Every. Single. One. A HUGE THANK YOU to Jacob Henry Mansion, especially Amanda!” – Jordan Y
