My husband and I recently had our wedding here(06/06/14) and I have nothing but amazing things to say!!! The Stan Mansion was everything we wanted for our big day. The room was breath taking and our guest had nothing but compliments about the gorgeous venue. Our experience through out the planning was great as well. Kevin was so awesome to us. I went in there very frequently and sent numerous emails and I always got quick and respectful responses! So thanks Kevin and Stan Mansion for our dream wedding and a smooth ride!

Stan Mansion is a beautiful, multi-floor venue! When we first went to see it we loved seeing all the pictures of previous events...its hard to imagine a space that big being so convertible but you really can make it completely your own quite easily. The building itself has great standout features- especially the vintage bar room on the second floor, and the team there is so great to work with to create the perfect vision for your day. We worked directly with Kevin the whole time and he was fantastic! We always had tons of recommendations from him (and we went with most of them), and he's always responsive- we never felt like we were waiting on a response to make a decision. Kevin made it really easy to get all our vendors in there, putting together an amazing night. When we walked into our wedding we were floored with how perfect it all came together without us being there to do it. If you're looking for a unique venue that's all yours for a night I would highly recommend checking out Stan Mansion, you will not be disappointed!!!

Kevin was a pleasure to work with. He was responsive and offered up his time regularly. My wedding at Stan was absolutely amazing. I couldn't have asked for anything more. All of the vendors were highly professional and worked hard to make sure everything went smoothly. I highly recommend Stan Mansion as a party venue.

If I could do my wedding over and over again I would choose Stan Mansion every time. I have been a resident of the Logan Square neighborhood for over 5 years now so having a venue as magical as the Stan Mansion right out my backdoor was dream come true. In the months leading up to my wedding I visited the Mansion approximately ten times. Each time, Kevin, the day of wedding coordinator was there to assist me and whomever I brought with. He was professional, easy going, and just truly AMAZING!! On the day of my wedding he ran the show and made sure everything was executed flawlessly. His expertise combined with the venue could not have been more perfect. I am so thankful to him and the venue for making my dream wedding truly a dream come true!

My partner and I recently (September 14th) had our ceremony at the Stan Mansion.
We live in Zürich, Switzerland, so unlike most couples, we had to conduct most of our communications from abroad.

Kevin (our ceremony coordinator) and Cera (the owner) were very pleasant to work with from the start. They were flexible to speak with and listened to all our unique ideas to make it a special day for us. They made us feel like we weren’t just another couple looking to have just another ceremony….but that our day truly mattered to them and to Stan Mansion.

When we entered the Mansion on the day of the ceremony we were blown away that Kevin listened and created exactly what we had envisioned. He did everything perfect, according to our drawings and exceeded our expectations.

My partner and I come from the events and hotel industry so exceeding our expectations was not going to be easy. Hats off to a great job Stan Mansion!

If you looking for a unique, elegant venue to have a classic Chicago experience…pick Stan Mansion and you won’t be disappointed. Your guests will be happy that it is not another hotel or banquet hall, but truly a unique elegant venue. They will be happy to have a new, fresh experience that will they will talk about long after your day is over.

We had a fantastic wedding at the Stan Mansion this summer, and continue to receive compliments on the uniqueness of the venue and it's classy feel. We knew from the start we wanted something different as far as a venue, a place where we could "flip the space" to serve as both our ceremony and reception site. The Stan Mansion certainly fit the bill in terms of size and space and value for your money. We also hired Kevin to be our day of coordinator, and couldn't be happier with his services. He was funny and friendly, and was always responsive to my numerous questions. We would certainly recommend Kevin and the Stan Mansion!

The Stan Mansion is a wonderful place to have an event. We had our wedding here and got so many compliments on how unique and beautiful the mansion was. You bring in all your own vendors, which is fun because you can pick and choose exactly what you want, and really tailor your event to your taste. The rental price is affordable, especially when compared to other Chicago venues. There is also plenty of parking around the mansion, as well as valet. I also liked that it's in the city, but away from congested downtown. Kevin is the coordinator at the mansion, and he is GREAT. He is always there to answer questions and help point you in the right direction. He is also available to help you plan your event as well. I highly recommend this venue if you're looking for a unique and beautiful place to have your party.

Everyone who came to the wedding was impressed with the beauty and splendor of Stan Mansion. What seemed like such a small place from the outside became an unexpected open space on the inside. Kevin was absolutely a gem to work with because he was so easygoing and understanding. Overall, this venue had what I was looking for in an intimate wedding in the city with a lot of class and elegance.

I can't say enough great things about my experience with Stan Mansion! From day one they have been attentive, responsive and very helpful! Kevin was always there to answer any questions, make suggestions and to offer his expertise in anyway possible. I would highly recommend this venue. Not only is it unique, but it is spacious and beautiful!! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day and I owe a lot of that to Kevin and the Stan Mansion venue as a whole!

I never imagined that the people I had just met would treat me like I was part of their family. Almost every decision we made during the planning process was made easier with Cera and Kevin's help. They made this great day even more special by treating my husband and I as if we were their only clients and whatever questions we had during the planning process were answered so quickly. The vendors they recommended (Art of Imagination and D'Absolute Catering) treated us equally as well. We can't tell you how happy we both were to have chosen The Stan Mansion as our wedding venue. And we can't tell you how happy we were with Kevin. He handled everything so efficiently and so professionally we really don't know what we would have done without his help. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a wedding or even just a party. We love you guys!

Everyone at Stan Mansion was so amazing I don't know where to begin. I'm a very low-stress person, and I decided to use Kevin and Cera's preferred vendors to make sure I wouldn't have to micromanage anything. I'm so happy that I made that decision; truly, if you use their vendors you will save yourself stress and receive fabulous value and service. Anyone thinking of booking the Stan Mansion for an event should do so with complete confidence!

Without a doubt. There is something ridiculously comforting about knowing that for the price we paid, we got triple the service. That Kevin, Cera and the rest of the team at Stan Mansion are more than happy to work to the very best of their ability to make sure our special day was truly as exceptional as it could be. It's difficult to put a price on peace of mind, but on our wedding day, Stan Mansion ensured we had just that. The day was priceless to us, went off without a hitch and we can't thank Kevin and Cera enough.

This is one of the best reception venues in the city. If you take in to consideration the price, location, staff, and atmosphere, it cannot be beat. I am not an organized person and I am not a girl who had dreams of weddings dancing through her head since childhood. However, between Kevin and all of the amazing vendors that he and Cera recommended, we ended up with the perfect wedding reception. This venue is BYOB making it incredibly affordable and great for those couples who don't want to serve overpriced well vodka but instead have a custom made bar selection available for guests. This venue is fabulous in that respect, it can be whatever you want it to be, from decorations to food to music, it is up to you!

One thing to consider at this venue is wheelchair/handicap accessibility. There is a large, beautiful, staircase leading to the main reception site and this would make it difficult for any parties involving more elderly guests or those needing handicap accessibility. We had plenty of help carrying grandma up the stairs, but something to keep in mind if that is not an option for your party. The venue may even be changing this, as they are constantly updating and improving on this wonderful space for events.

I highly recommend the STAN MAN! :)

Cerra and Kevin were great! They helped me pull off my dream wedding! The venue was beautiful, clean and above all else impressive. We got so many compliments on Stan as our venue, the best part was that it accommodated everything we wanted but didn't send us into debt. Affordable, flexible and gorgeous are the keywords here. Thank you Stan mansion for all of your help, you've provided me with memories to last a life time!

My best friend had married at Stan the year before we did and as her maid of honor I had a wonderful experience helping her plan her big day. It was a no brainer when I became engaged to choose Stan Mansion as our venue.
Cera and Kevin were beyond helpful and always there when we needed, whether it be recommendations for vendors, or just a ear to listen.

Stan Mansion is a diamond in the rough- it is unsuspecting and absolutely gorgeous, a guaranteed WOW moment for your guests!

Every room my guests entered they were transformed into a different mood, from the grand ballroom to the large space we were married in on the mezzanine level, to the separate bar with antique carved wood fixtures, this place screams romance and old hollywood glamour! It is a place that is gorgeous on its own but can be accented to bring your own personal touches!

We cannot thank Cera and Kevin enough for all of their effort and hard work, it truly made our big day everything we could have ever dreamed of!

Your forever friends/fans!

I really can't write enough glowing reviews of the Stan. EVERYONE we met there (primarily Cera and Kevin) was extremely attentive, courteous, and really did go out of their way to assist us whenever necessary. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. We wanted an intimate venue (where ours was the only event being held), and all of our guests raved about the decor, furniture, etc. Also, the pricing is the best we found after researching venues throughout the entire city and even some suburbs. I couldn't recommend the Stan highly enough.

I got engaged in October of 2010 and came across the Stan Mansion in my research right away. I wanted a unique and special venue and I was excited to check it out. It was love at first sight! I also wondered why i had came across some of the bad reviews that I did. When I met Cera Stan I was pleasantly surprised how wonderful and accommodating she was. I took my fiance to check it out and in my second tour of the beautiful building I was sold! We were planning an October 2012 wedding and the day after seeing it for the second time Cera Announced that she would be holding Mini Ceremonies on Valentine's Day. My fiance and I discussed it and we decided we would participate in it! This left us with only 3 weeks to plan. I was a bit overwhelmed but Cera planned the entire event! She works with the best professionals in the business. My wedding was absolutely everything I had ever dreamed of! The mansion was beautifully decorated and Cera and her team went out of there way to make everything extra special. I can't wait for an excuse to hold another event there! I would highly recommend this venue to everyone. I felt like a princess the moment i walked in the door

The Stan Mansion was the perfect venue for my reception. It was unique and within my budget! The venue is so beautiful inside and it is so great that you have the entire venue for just your wedding. It is so unique and excellent for those looking to have more control over choosing your vendors. At the Stan Mansion, Cera Stan is there to greet you and work with you throughout the wedding process. Cera gives you a list of vendors that have been positively referred but of course you still have the freedom to choose any caterer, Dj, florist, event planner, and event rental. Her list was great and I did choose some of her vendors on the list. This is great for those who have a very specific budget as it gave me freedom to decide on how much I wanted to spend. The venue is so spacious and in a great location (easy to find and for guests to get to). They have a bar/cocktail area that is separate from the main hall which was so cool and guests loved the ability to move around more. You also can choose to bring in your own liquor and get a licensed bar tender (which you can get through your caterer) which was very helpful as it allowed us to make sure that people were able to drink all and night and make it open bar without putting us into debt. My guests loved my venue and thought it was so unique and special! I loved my experience with the Stan Mansion and hope to return there soon for another big event!

I just had my wedding here April 24th, and it was amazing! Cera, the owner, was completely caring, hands on, imaginative, and open. Cera allowed us to have long meetings with her to go over ideas for decorations, catering, etc. And she was extremely helpful in giving us her insight on which caterers, florists, cake makers, etc to use. And if there was someone on her prefered list of vendors we met with who was rude we told Cera and she would take that into consideration in whether she wanted to keep them on the preferred vendors list. I felt very protected by Cera when it came down to deciding on vendors for the wedding which is such a daughnting task. Also, Cera went above and beyond in allowing us to use items she had at no extra charge. For example, a couch, tables, seating in the bar, a rug, and so on. Cera takes pride in all events held at the Stan Mansion and she would do anything to make your day great.

Looking back I wouldn't have wanted to have my wedding anywhere else!

I worked with Cera at the Stan Mansion to create the dream wedding reception.

My husband and I were on the verge of canceling even having a reception because we could not find a nice venue that we could afford. The Stan Mansion allowed us the flexibility to bring in any vendor of our choosing, allowing us to save THOUSANDS in liquor and food costs. The ambiance was easy to create because the building has so much character.

We had a beach themed reception for 200 people a week ago. We are still being asked how we ever found this place and complemented on the lighting, the bar set up, and the ease of valet parking.

Cera was just wonderful to work with. She was so helpful in recommending some of the most professional and easy to work with vendors. She also provided so many great recommendations at times it was like having a wedding planner.

I just love this venue and highly recommend it to anyone looking to host a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Stan Mansion, and Cera in particular, were the highlight of our wedding-vendor experience. I do not usually give perfect scores, but there is nothing else I could possibly do in this case: Stan Mansion was perfect.

We had a very non-traditional, queer not-a-wedding ceremony, with a completely unique ceremony and reception. Cera not only handled all of our requests and needs beautifully, she was excited and supportive and fantastic to work with. She understood our budget, worked with us to find vendors who could do what we wanted at a price we could afford, suggested caterers and resources, and helped us when any of those relationships were difficult.

We cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Our ceremony was gorgeous, our reception perfect, our guests enchanted, and our not-a-wedding the most remarkable day of our lives.

Thank you Stan Mansion and Cera for being so utterly perfect!

Stan Mansion was the perfect venue for me, and working with Cera was delightful. They were very accommodating and let me come in with my own ideas and setup, recommended vendors, and worked with my vendors for me to ensure that all the proper paperwork was taken care of. Cera was wonderfully responsive through the whole planning process, had great suggestions, and was even at the wedding, helping me take care of last minute details as the guests arrived.

The renovations they have been working on are wonderful and it's a great event venue for someone who wants their wedding to be different than the regular banquet event.

The Stan Mansion is an excellent place to get married if you are looking for a non- traditional wedding. The mansion is a great value for cost although everything associated with it has a heafty cost. That seems to be with anywhere in the city. Cera was slightly difficult to get a hold of but when she was available, she was extremely helpful and the day went off without a hitch. Everything was great and I would recomend this to an off-beat artsy bride.

My husband and I had our 140 guest wedding at Stan Mansion on 2/22/14 and it was amazing! I would highly recommend Stan Mansion to anyone looking for a unique, beautiful, fun, and open space for their wedding venue or event.

We first discovered Stan Mansion when attending a friend's wedding there in November of 2013. We loved the idea of renting a space and then choosing any vendors we wanted to work with. We quickly found out when you book with a country club or certain venues you are required to use their linens, food, etc. but with Stan Mansion you can customize the space to exactly what you are looking for.

Kevin was our day of coordinator and he was awesome! He coordinated with all of our vendors, he met with me several times to walk around the venue and answer my questions and help with my planning, and he was so easy to talk to and made me laugh. Which was so refreshing to help bring a smile to my face as the stress and pressure was mouthing close to the big day.

Pros: The venue coordinates valet; separate bar area/lounge (this space worked out perfectly for our cocktail hour while flipping the room from the ceremony to reception); working with Kevin is great; flexibility in choosing your own vendors/caterers (we selected J&L Catering; they were amazing and have catered events at Stan Mansion numerous times). Also the venue is BYOB so we saved alot of money by purchasing our own alcohol and then having our caterer serve it.

One thing to note while we thought a venue that you just pay to rent the space and do whatever you want would be far cheaper in the grand scheme of things it was the same price as the other venues. And you have to really commit to putting in the extra work yourself on all of the details/planning. While Kevin does day of coordinating and an amazing job I would suggest a coordinator for all the details/vendors/etc. when choosing Stan Mansion. It is alot for a bride to do on her own.

We first discovered Stan Mansion when attending a friend's wedding there in November of 2013. We loved the idea of renting a space and then choosing any vendors we wanted to work with. We quickly found out when you book with a country club or certain venues you are required to use their linens, food, etc. but with Stan Mansion you can customize the space to exactly what you are looking for.

Kevin was our day of coordinator and he was awesome! He coordinated with all of our vendors, he met with me several times to walk around the venue and answer my questions and help with my planning, and he was so easy to talk to and made me laugh. Which was so refreshing to help bring a smile to my face as the stress and pressure was mouthing close to the big day.

Pros: The venue coordinates valet; separate bar area/lounge (this space worked out perfectly for our cocktail hour while flipping the room from the ceremony to reception); working with Kevin is great; flexibility in choosing your own vendors/caterers (we selected J&L Catering; they were amazing and have catered events at Stan Mansion numerous times). Also the venue is BYOB so we saved alot of money by purchasing our own alcohol and then having our caterer serve it.

One thing to note while we thought a venue that you just pay to rent the space and do whatever you want would be far cheaper in the grand scheme of things it was the same price as the other venues. And you have to really commit to putting in the extra work yourself on all of the details/planning. While Kevin does day of coordinating and an amazing job I would suggest a coordinator for all the details/vendors/etc. when choosing Stan Mansion. It is alot for a bride to do on her own. Read less

My wife and I were really impressed when we visited Stan Mansion. After visiting the venue, I was delighted to see that Stan Mansion had so much character and was a Chicago historic landmark. It actually does not cost a significant amount of money to do lighting and décor. And Cera has a great relationship with Deborah at Art of Imagination to provide discounted lighting and décor services specifically for Stan Mansion.

We visited at least 15 wedding venues, 5 that were DITY (do it yourself), and we had the best feeling after meeting with Cera and Kevin. It really does stand out as one of the best venues where you rent the entire space and bring your own caters/vendors. You can truly transform Stan Mansion to any theme or style of wedding of your choice. Look at their wedding photo album and you will be quite amazed.

Cera runs a tight operation and has an amazing list of vendors to choose from. We actually used a couple of their vendors and were happy to see that they did most of the work and research to identify a lengthy list of vendors and options. Our guests had such an amazing time at our wedding and enjoyed how there were separate rooms for the dining hall, separate room for the wedding party, separate bar area with 2 bars, beautiful foyer, and great front patio. We had about 225 guests and it was a comfortable fit (I believe 300 is capacity).

I rate the venue with 4.5 stars and the service/overall experience with 3.5 stars. The reason for my overall rating is because I was told that one of my guests tore a little piece of wallpaper in the bathroom and what should have been a small and simple repair resulted in a $250 fee to redo the wallpaper in the entire bathroom. I could have even repaired it without redoing the entire bathroom for $250; it left a bad taste in my mouth. Additionally, I used their preferred vendor for valet (The KO Valet) and they ended up stealing items stealing items from my guests.

Horrible owners and management. Once they got paid, they could care less about us. The owner had an issue with out caterer (who she initially praised and recommened). They had an altercation and 3 weeks before the wedding Cera decided to change the rules. The day of our rehearsal, she double booked. And did nothing to help rectify the issue. She stayed in her office like she was scared of the confrontation. at the rehearsal, we learned there would be no air conditioning. No air at the end of June in chicago, SERIOUSLY! We paid way too much money to be treated this way. And a friend of mine saw a rat in the building the day of. How embarrasing! Stay far away from this venue and any other businesses operated by Cera Stan.

We worked with Stan Mansion and eventually booked them for our August 2009 wedding. Unfortunately, we were completely mislead by Stan Mansion management and wound up having to completely change the location of our wedding on only 4 months notice. We were treated so poorly and lied to during our experience with Stan Mansion. Not only did we suffer the stress of having to move our wedding on short notice, but they wouldn't even give us back our security deposit, even though they weren't able to meet the terms of our original agreement. Had hoped to see Stan Mansion as an up-and-coming Logan Square event location, but have been forced by this situation to provide negative reviews and recommend people away from Stan Mansion.

I absolutely loved the mansion. Cera was so helpful in providing ideas and solutions on such short notice. The ability to customize the mansion is one of the things that most attracted me to this location. Typically, with most banquet halls, the decor is decided for you. Using the mansion, you are given a clear canvas with which you can be as creative as you'd like. I celebrated a 25th anniversary and had the time of my life.
