Best venue ever! From the minute we walked into the venue, we knew it would be our wedding venue. We are completely taken by the beauty of the mansion and the charm and expertise of Jennifer Anderson. If you are considering this venue, just pick it already! It is truly a magical place with superb staff.

We absolutely loved our wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion! We received so many compliments on the amazing & unique venue, the impeccable service and the excellent food. I was beyond impressed with the staff's level of detail and how they truly made every moment magical. Being able to move throughout the mansion as the ceremony and wedding progressed kept guests so engaged and it was as if you were in 4 different reception venues; both indoors and out!

Additionally, we were very excited to have an outdoor ceremony and having been in several weddings prior where we were used to the "we will decide at 10am that morning if you can be outdoors" routine. This was NOT the case with the Van Dusen. They were so thoughtful in watching the weather (on 5 different radars) and decided at 3pm that they would take the chance to go outside per my wishes, and it worked out wonderfully. It goes to show their flexibility, organization and how much they care about making your day perfect.

Lastly, there were so many items that the Van Dusen had on site that we were allowed to use which made the additional money well worth it and they managed our crazy family with ease! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a gorgeous outdoor or indoor location!

The Van Dusen staff and venue are the best in the "biz!" I just had my wedding there and from the moment I inquired about the venue as a potential wedding location to the day I picked up my last centerpiece from the wedding, they gave me nothing by top notch service. Their staff had a solution for everything and no matter what was asked, they always answered with a "yes." Jennifer and her staff, as well as Elizabeth and the Mintahoe staff, took care of every detail that even I, a "type A, planner and organizer", didn't even think about! Every one of our guests complimented the ease and flow of the entire night. My bridesmaids were awestruck by the fact that it was SUCH a stress free day and we could just enjoy the day because of all of the details the Van Dusen staff took off of our plates. The food from Mintahoe was just as good as the original tasting we had which knocked our socks off! Guests were so impressed and said that they had never had a better "wedding dinner." The bartenders were amazing- always accommodating and outgoing while keeping up with demand. There was never a line! The Van Dusen made my wedding an absolute fairytale and I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants to truly remember and enjoy their big day to the fullest!

The Van Dusen Mansion was an unbelievable venue. Each location from the ceremony, the social hour, the reception, and the dance was beautifully decorated and presented. Our guests were blown away by the space's beauty and ease of accommodation. Jennifer and Matt Anderson made the entire event run like clockwork. Any problem that arose, from needing baby food to re pinning flowers, they handled immediately and with amazing grace under pressure. The entire experience at the mansion was beyond anything we could have expected. Our day was perfect from beginning to end because of their amazing staff and their hard work. I will recommend this venue 100 times over.

Our wedding at the Van Dusen Mansion was nothing short of magical. Jennifer, Matt, and the entire staff made sure that the day went perfectly! They were all a joy to work with and knew exactly what to do so that my husband and I were able to enjoy the day rather than be busy or stressed taking care of things. Our guests absolutely LOVED the mansion and the way they were escorted from place to place through the evening. (We had many compliments on how quickly and efficiently the staff handled this.) We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Matt, Jennifer, and the staff; it is clear that they are extremely experienced and passionate for what they do -- their passion shines through!

We recently had our wedding reception at the Van Dusen Mansion. Originally we chose the venue for its gorgeous aesthetics and convenient location, but when the time came, Jennifer, Matt, and the catering coordinator for the site Elizabeth, all went absolutely above and beyond in every single way to make the day perfect and our own. It was a pleasure working with each and every one of the staff members. They were all extremely helpful, courteous, organized, and prompt all throughout the planning process never ceasing to meet each one of our requests. They took care of us in every way and made the day go smoother than we could have imagined. The food was phenomenal and the space was an experience our guests said was unforgettable. If we could do the day over again we would not change a single thing. We could not thank the Van Dusen staff enough for helping to make our day so special.
