It was so easy to deal with the staff. My ceremony was in the Formal Garden, the pictures came out amazing. The staff made the rehearsal run so smooth, they coordinated how we would walk down the aisle and spoke with the officant to make sure we were all on the same page. On The Day Of They Made Sure everything went off without a hitch, even when we had to push the ceremony back by 30 minutes.

I knew that Wilder Mansion would be a perfect fit as soon as we met Meagan. I was looking for a place with character and, above all, great people with whom to work with, and I was not disappointed during the entire process. Apart from being a lovely setting with its own park and greenhouse, the Mansion has a small but helpful staff and, as a bride abroad, it was helpful to be in constant contact with them through various media. What's more, they were flexible in the few times I was in town for planning and had just about everything we needed as far as rentals, even going as far to recommend caterers, hotels and tips for saving a bit of money.

The actual wedding went off without a hitch, despite having Meagan on maternity leave. She left me in the hands of Heather and Katie, who did an incredible job pulling everything together for me. The reception flew by without any issues (unless you count running out of vodka before dinner even started!). I would definitely recommend the Mansion for events!

When I saw this venue, I knew it was the perfect place for our wedding! Since we were holding the ceremony at the same place as the reception, I wanted someplace special and beautiful and the Wilder Mansion did not disappoint. Our guests raved about the Mansion, saying it was one of the most amazing places they have ever seen.

The Wilder coordinators, Meagan and Heather were so helpful. Their service went above and beyond my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and they helped make that happen.

The Wilder Mansion is undoubtedly a gorgeous setting for a wedding. We chose it because it was a beautiful, intimate space that could accommodate our smaller wedding of 75 guests (however the space does allow for much larger parties, as well). We could have our ceremony and reception at the same location, which was another huge plus. However, the main element that deserves high praise was the work of Megan and Heather, who run the Mansion. So professional, efficient, accommodating, flexible, I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They made the whole process easy and nearly effortless, and gave us an absolutely gorgeous wedding at an incredibly affordable price.

We recently got married at Wilder Mansion and everything was fabulous from the very first day we met with Meagan to get the planning started!! We got married outside in the gardens and had our reception immediately following in the mansion. We had one little blip with our day and that was that our officiant had the wrong time written down and was going to be an hour late. The mansion staff worked quickly with our caterer and began taking drinks and refreshments out to our guests in the garden while they waited. Whew! The setting was amazing and we couldn't have imagined our day to be more perfect than it was! We and all of our family and friends were highly impressed with the mansion and its staff!! Thank you for helping make our day so wonderful!!

My wedding was the most wonderful experience I've ever had! Meagan was especially helpful with all my questions and got back to me in a timely manner, which I really appreciated. Heather was great on the day of the wedding and at the wedding rehearsal. She had excellent suggestions and made sure my day went smoothly. I truly would like to thank them and the staff of the Wilder Mansion for making my wedding the best day ever!

The gardens for our wedding were in full bloom, all our ceremony pictures are breath taking. The people who work there are fantastic and we received a memory brick by having our wedding there. My husband waited for everything to start in the mansion while I waited in the gardeners cottage, I recommend switching this for future people. My husband got some beautiful pictures inside and I feel it would have been better suited for the bride. The grounds were a perfect backdrop and we took pictures across the street at Elmhurst college. The whole time was perfect and if your looking for an outdoor wedding, this is the place! All my pictures are beyond beautiful. Thank you!

The Wilder Mansion is the PERFECT setting for a romantic, intimate celebration. We had about 130 guests and everyone said it was the best wedding they'd been too and had so much fun.

Planning this amazing wedding was so much easier because of the wonderful staff at Wilder. Meagan, Heather, and the others are so professional and answered any questions I had so quickly! It is very reasonable too for the beautiful space & outdoor garden.
