101 Jacob Henry Mansion Estate Reviews
Married on 09/22/2012
I found the Jacob Henry Mansion when we were planning our daughters wedding. We scheduled a visit to the venue and were completely impressed from the time we met with Sarah and her Mom. During the ... Read more planning stages, Sarah and her Mom were a joy to work with and made everything easy to coordinate even when I had questions. The ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were even more than I had ever expected. From the moment I stepped into the Victorian Ballroom, it took my breath away it was so beautiful. After the wedding was over, about 50 people commented to us that it was by far, without a doubt, the best wedding they had ever been to. I would absolutely hold another event or wedding at The Jacob Henry Mansion!!

After reading a ton of reviews and looking at a ton of photos of the Jacob Henry we ended up making an appointment with Amanda, who is an amazing woman! From the very beginning she listened to what we ... Read more wanted and respected our wishes and our budget. She worked with us closely and became what I will always refer to as my day-of coordinator. She and her family run the mansion with dedication and grace and they made our day feel like a truly special event. We started with a full tour of the grounds, quickly learning that a wedding of our size meant having a reception in the Victorian Hall instead of the mansion itself. We were fine with this though, since the Hall and its connected spaces are also very beautiful (that full porch!!!) Amanda answered every single annoying email I threw at her and at all times made it clear she was on our side in all things. She was flexible with us too and was also upfront about all things, as far as costs and style goes. If I suddenly had a tacky idea she would save me from it and explain what might work better. Overall the venue was perfect and almost everything went off without a hitch. Amanda was perfect and was working hard throughout the night. On a sadder note, something unfortunate was brought to our attention by some of our guests and family members, including my mother-in-law and sister. I have already brought this to the attention of Amanda and I told her I would be mentioning it here just to be clear to future couples. There were two bartenders at our bar and one of them, younger and blonde I believe, was consistently RUDE to my wedding guests. I heard about it from many different sources and when I brought it up to Amanda she was apologetic and understanding and disappointed to hear it, although not surprised. The bartenders rude behavior ranged from shortness to having an attitude. That is the only disappointment from the Jacob Henry.
