The Grand Island Mansion is absolutely beautiful!! Their coordinators help out a lot during the wedding day, including moving your centerpieces downstairs after dinner and setting up everything such as the candy bar, tables, escort cards, and different things I had bought on etsy. The food is amazing and the venue is very elegant and amazing.

I accidentally ran across GMI's website when my house agent recommended Old Sugar Mill area for wedding venue. GMI is actually the first venue I have ever visited and immediately fell in love with the place. Without hesitation and great venue pricing, I booked my date soon after my first visit.

Since I am a DIY bride, I have a lot of question for them on how I can decorate the place. They were really helpful and responsive to my questions.

Such a lovely venue and great people. I cannot wait till my wedding day to come!

My wedding is in May 2016 so this review is only based on my experiences so far. I will update it after the wedding. I love the venue's unique charm and so far the staff (Debbie & Rick) have been responsive when I have had questions. The only negatives I have found so far aren't anything major. 1 - You have to use the venue's food but they don't offer tastings. Seems strange to pick menu options without sampling the food. Debbie told us we could come to a Sunday brunch (which we did at $29 per person) but the brunch menu only had a couple items from the dinner menu. Everything was delicious and I'm sure the food will be fine but it is a little disappointing that you can't taste the food or cake. 2 - They only allow you onsite for 1.5 hours before your ceremony. So I have a 6:00pm ceremony and the earliest I can arrive is 4:30pm. I feel like decoration set up will be crazy and our pre-ceremony and getting ready photos will be rushed. 3 - They aren't super flexible, the have set schedules, pre-approved DJs, a packet of rules, etc. but in the end, they do this all day everyday so who am I to argue? Overall the location is beautiful and so far everyone has been helpful and professional.

This venue is stand alone. If you did not have a single flower or decoration it is simply gorgeous and elegant in every detail. Do not be off put by its accessibility ....if you have good directions it is VERY EASY TO FIND! Debbie, Tara and Rick are all excellent, over the top helpful and quick to reply to any and all questions. Our daughter had a May Sunday 11-4 day wedding. Gorgeous lush, green wedding ceremony area, beautiful pool and patio reception and elegant, de-lish buffet and dining rooms. Do not be off put by the split dining rooms....YOU ONLY EAT THERE...after that it is Ballroom partying or out to the beautiful back patio/pool area for the elegant time of your life. I is truly a fairy tale wedding site. Her's was a Gatsby theme wedding and we are still getting glowing Facebook and email comments!!! Book it..you will not regret it...Oh and the sneak peek photos...TO DIE FOR! FOOD, WEDDING CAKE AND BEER/WINE/CHAMPAGNE PACKAGE/BARTENDER/SECURITY OPTIONS OFFERED AS WELL...WE TOOK EVERYTHING AND IT WAS ALL PERFECT!

I am renting this place for my wedding here in February. They have worked with me to make sure I get everything taken care of. Even moved the day for my 6 month deposit since I booked the wedding 6 months in advance. They are even letting me have my dogs in the wedding. They are an all inclusive venue which means less stress for me!!

What a beautiful setting for our special day! Our wedding day coordinator, Tara, was wonderful to work with, She was very essential to how smooth the day went. It was very nice to know that we could depend on her for anything we needed. The rooms were great, the food was awesome and we couldn't have asked for a better place to have our wedding.

Overall, I am so glad that I chose grand island mansion as my wedding venue.
Pros: affordable, excellent food, they make the wedding cake which was convenient. My pictures and wedding video turned out absolutely beautiful because of this venue.

Cons: the coordinator did absolutely nothing on my wedding day. She did not read my banquet event order which I meticulously planned with Debbie (she didn't follow any of the instructions about the special meals I needed due to allergies or the specific instructions that were written down about the cake). However, the staff quickly whipped up the vegan and gluten free meals when I asked for them (took about 20 minutes after everyone else was eating). You are not allowed to have a speaker in the main dining room (they say there isn't enough space) so don't plan on doing toasts during the meal unless you can do them without a microphone. Also, you are only allowed access to the property 90 mins before the wedding which can be stressful getting everything set up in time.

It looks like the cons list is long, but my complaints are minimal. I would definitely recommend the grand island mansion!

Absolutely, unbelievably huge and beautiful venue, for half the price of anything on the peninsula! The staff was incredibly helpful, and with so much of setup, breakdown, event coordination, and everything else just magically taken care of, I was able to just sit back and ride through the final days before the wedding and the big day itself. The mansion is kind of out in the middle of nowhere, so the ride in can be a bit intimidating, but it is beyond worth it.
