We got married on September 14, 2013 at Historic Mankin Mansion. I am beyond words of how perfect everything was! This venue is all around perfect, wonderful, stress free, and full of love! When we booked Mankin Mansion about a year and half out, Martin asked me what was the one thing I wanted most out of my wedding, I replied with to marry my best friend and be stress- free. The Mansion staff made sure to make that happen. For a bride to not be stressed out the day of her wedding... that right there says ALOT.

Being able to have the grounds all weekend was so convenient. I didn't have to worry about any of the bridal party being late or getting lost. Being able to completely turn the grounds into your own, was wonderful. From being able to choose music to simply having a romantic setting set up the night you become husband and wife.

The planning team is amazing! Kate was my planner, who was absolutely the best. She had everything together and flowing perfect. There was not one thing that went wrong. Waking up and seeing your wedding actually come together is the best part. Knowing all you have to do is laugh, smile, and relax with your bridesmaids the day of was such a feeling of relief. When one of my venders was late, Kate knew something was wrong and was on top of it right away. Again, the staff at Mankin Mansion does anything in their power to put on your Special day without a hiccup! I think they even have something worked out to get the weather absolutely PERFECT for your special day!

Almost two months later and I am still getting SO many compliments on how beautiful and perfect our wedding was!! All my friends keep raving about how I set the bar so high, and just how fun everything was. Music, lights, flow of events, and the rooms are beautiful! Thank you so much for making my dream wedding come true and forever looking back on the day and just smiling! PERFECT!

I can not possibly say enough amazing things about this property. From the moment we visited the property we knew it was the perfect venue for our special day. My husband and I were planning our wedding from Miami and the entire team went above and beyond to make sure every detail of the day was taken care. They responded to emails quickly, thought about every single detail of the day, asked tons of questions to make sure that on the day of we were totally taken care. My Event Planner Gina was a goddess on the day of our wedding! I forgot to put on my garter and after the DJ announced it was time for my groom to remove it she flew into action and took a ribbon off my flowers to use. No one noticed and it was a perfect alternative. I will forever be grateful for her! The property was simply perfection the day of the wedding and there is just a magical energy surrounding the location. Thank you Mankin Mansion for creating such a beautiful place for couples to enjoy the best day of their life! <3 <3 <3

I must have visited The Historic Mankin Mansion at least four times before finally committing because honestly I can be so indecisive but I couldn't deny that there was something about the beauty of the grounds and pleasant staff that caught my attention immediately. We were provided with a nice binder to assist with planning and it even included recommended services such as caterers and photographers. Gina did such an amazing job with keeping me on task with emails and was always prompt to respond to every single question, and trust me there were a lot. Because our wedding party were mostly out of town we were unable to have rehearsal on the planned day but Martin and staff agreed to a quick rehearsal before the wedding which went so well. So fast forward to me sitting in the carriage house which is designated for the bride with absolutely no worries. Gina and staff made sure to go exactly by the plans we discussed at the meetings and everything ran smoothly. Right before the ceremony it began to rain (luckily it stopped) but staff was right on it with making sure chairs were dry for arriving guests and providing umbrellas. Martin did an amazing job with the music throughout the ceremony and the reception as we had discussed and had no problem allowing family members to grab the mic. The staff does an amazing job with decorating the venue how you choose and are even creative and take initiative to make things look that much beautiful. I absolutely loved the effort and dedication and all the "extras" that went into making our day perfect and it was just that. If I had one complaint it would be that it had to end. Our family and friends are still talking about the wonderful time they had and we've received wonderful feedback such as the "wedding of the year" and "best wedding I've ever been to." I would recommend this venue to every bride and groom. We truly had no worries the day of the wedding making it that much special! Thanks so much Mankin Mansion!

We looked a lot of places before selecting Mankin Mansion! What the venue provides over other venues in the area made it an easy decision. Working with Kate made the planning process so easy especially since I was planning our wedding across the country. I also could not have been happier how the day turned out! Everything was set up exactly as planned and once we arrived we knew the day was going to run smoothly with the organization of the MM staff. I highly recommend using Mankin Mansion as your wedding venue.

Historic Mankin Mansion was the PERFECT location for our wedding. Their experienced staff, Kate, was extremely hands on and made the entire planning process, from an execution standpoint :), a breeze. I am extremely grateful for Kate and all that she did for my husband and I. I can't imagine having had our wedding anywhere else.

Our wedding at the Historic Mankin Mansion was a breeze because our wedding planner, Gina, was meticulous, careful, thoughtful, and organized. At our first meeting, I was given a pre-organized binder with suggestions and recommendations for every aspect of the wedding, complete with brochures and contact information for all types of officiants, caterers, glam squads, and anything else you can imagine wanting or needing on your wedding day. Gina continued to keep all of my contracts together by personally emailing every single person we booked for the wedding. She worked with us through Skype since we live a state away and asked us many detailed questions to ensure our day was exactly how we wanted it.
At the rehearsal, Gina was very clear so our huge wedding party knew exactly what to do. She even provided us all with a detailed, to-the-minute itinerary for the wedding day, which impressed and calmed me. On the day of the wedding, Gina was so happy and congratulatory, answered all of our consistent and annoying questions without once losing patience, and seemed to be everywhere at once so that everything ran smoothly. She even showed up at the very end of our sparkler send-off waiting for us at the car to congratulate us once more.
Martin did an excellent job by double-checking all of the wedding party's names, playing all of our song choices, and throwing in some of his own to make sure everyone was up, dancing and dancing. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. If our florist's flowers had not been there, it still would have given off a lovely garden feel by itself. I wanted to have my wedding at the HMM because I attended a wedding there 7 years ago. Everything I loved about that wedding was the same for mine 7 years later, indicating their consistency and precision with each and every detail. One of our groomsman later screamed to us while we were dancing, "I'M HAVING MY WEDDING AT THE MANKIN MANSION!"

There is honestly no better place to have your wedding at than the Historic Mankin Mansion! The staff are phenomenal - namely Kate Miller, our main wedding coordinator, and Martin, the owner/DJ. Initially, the draw for most potential couples is the beauty of the venue/grounds; however, once you are officially booked with them, the staff is 100% what makes the lasting impression. Kate was beyond amazing & more wonderful than I could have ever imagined. HMM needs to, without a doubt, keep her around for years to come! She was the perfect combination of personable, patient, accommodating, and professional. Kate makes sure to go above and beyond to help her couples out and is a wonderful communicator. I don't think the whole weekend could have gone any smoother. We were so impressed with how well the coordination of the wedding went, considering it rained from dusk to dawn on our wedding day (which was obviously a huge potential negative at first). However, even though it seemed like a hurdle for them at times, the HMM staff had such awesome, detail-oriented backup plans that the rain wasn't that big of a deal & the staff still kept their heads held high & assumed all stress so we didn't have to. (Especially Kate, again, clearly a rockstar!) In addition, if you book with HMM, you absolutely have to use Martin as your DJ. We had (and continue to receive) countless compliments on Martin & his wonderful DJ-ing abilities. As you can see in many other reviews, he is amazing at what he does & always a crowd favorite. He really did such a great job and strategically kept all guests on the dance floor at all times. Most of our guests said, hands down, our wedding was the best/most fun wedding they have been to. Altogether, I can guarantee you will not be disappointed with HMM. Anthony & I cannot thank the HMM staff enough for all they did for us in creating a magical experience & wedding day. It was such a pleasure working with you guys & we are forever grateful to you all! :)

I recently got married at Makin Mansion on March 21st. First off this venue is breathtaking!! I was recommended to this venue from my old supervisor who got married here as well. I couldn't be more happy with her sending me their way. I worked with Kate as my planner and she is the absolutely best. She answered all of our questions during the planning process and was very helpful in helping us figure out how we wanted to have everything decorated for our special day. We have gotten so many compliments on the venue and how well organized everything was!

Our DJ was the owner Martin and he was Amazing! He kept all of my guest on the dance floor everyone there was having a great time. He defiantely knew how to keep the crowd engaged.

The only complaint i would have is that my guest didn't know who give the cards to. There was a mailbox set up before the cermony but it wasn't made clear for the guest. So all night i had people asking me where to put or cards or who to give them too.

Other then that my day was nothing short of Amazing! I wish I could do it all over again and would most certainly stick with my choice of the Mankin Mansion!

Historic Mankin Mansion Wedding Resort responded with the following comments:

Thank you so much for sharing your experience- it's was our pleasure to be a part of such an important day. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail (and keeping people on the dance floor!) and we're thrilled we could exceed expectations in this way.

We're sorry to hear that there was an issue with the mailbox. Our staff does lay out wedding day items according to the couples' respective wishes but once we have followed through with this task, we do have to move on to the execution of the event itself. It's because of this that we ask that couples assign friends or family to be greeters who can welcome guests and assist with items such as this. If they don't arrive at the requested time, then some confusion can ensue with guests who arrive early and we're sorry to hear that this was the case.

Moving forward we will add a sign with gift instructions in case the greeters have not arrived. Thank so much for helping us improve our services!

Thank you again for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

We had our wedding renewal ceremony and reception at HMM in March. The grounds looked stunning the whole weekend. The day of our wedding was a little tricky; it was forecasted to rain all day long, right up until 15 minutes before the start time of our ceremony. Kate (our amazing wedding planner) and Martin (owner) were in constant contact with us throughout the day to let us know what the forecast was saying, and what our options were for choosing in indoor or outdoor ceremony. But prayers were answered and the rain did end up stopping 15 minutes before the start of our ceremony, followed by a sunny sky. Martin was very flexible with us though; they actually allowed us to push the ceremony (and entire timeline of events for the night) back 15 minutes, so that they could keep the guest chairs dry and give them some extra time to take their seats. That was huge for us.

Martin is an AWESOME MC/DJ. He is very flexible with changes/requests, got everyones name perfect, played all of the songs we asked for (and more of his own mixes towards the end which was definitely getting people on the dance floor), and did a great job of keeping things rolling throughout the night. Super professional and catered to the "feel" of the night.

Our wedding planner Kate was pretty amazing throughout the entire experience, from the time we booked the venue last summer, up to us driving away at the end of the wedding night. She does so much behind the scenes work that ultimately led up to a perfect wedding weekend. She did a good job of keeping us on track (time wise) throughout the entire day, but was never pushy and never once interrupted us if we were talking with guests, etc. In the hours leading up to the ceremony it was raining pretty hard, but Kate had her rain boots on and was making countless trips between the groom/groomsmen area and the bride/bridesmaids area to keep us both in the loop with the weather situation. Couldn't have done it without her!!

She did a good job of keeping us on track (time wise) throughout the entire day, but was never pushy and never once interrupted us if we were talking with guests, etc. In the hours leading up to the ceremony it was raining pretty hard, but Kate had her rain boots on and was making countless trips between the groom/groomsmen area and the bride/bridesmaids area to keep us both in the loop with the weather situation. Couldn't have done it without her!! Read less
