The BEST Team!

We cannot thank the staff from the Elmhurst Park District and Wilder Mansion enough - they were a true dream team! From the second we had our first tour, all the way through our wedding day, the ... Read more entire Wilder Mansion team was flexible, responsive, easy to talk to, and incredibly kind. We used the mansion instead of the garden. Our plan was to use the house to get ready and then have our photos and ceremony outside. Well...the weather didn't like that idea. We ended up having to move our ceremony inside. somehow they managed to fit 100 chairs and all of our friends and family into the room, and it was BEAUTIFUL. A special thank you to Peg, Heather and Meagan - all of whom were an important piece to our day. We cannot WAIT to share our photos so everyone else can see how beautiful our day ended up!

Could not have asked for better

We love the Wilder Mansion! My husband and I knew the Wilder Mansion was right for us. We had a Harry Potter themed wedding, and the aesthetic of the mansion fit the theme perfectly. Meghan and ... Read more Heather were wonderful to work with. Both ladies were rooting for our vision to be fulfilled; Heather even wore a Harry Potter outfit during the wedding! We got to have the entire mansion to ourselves, which was something we both wanted in a venue. The Wilder Mansion staff were amazing at decorating to make our vision come to life. They were determined to make us happy! They listened to what we wanted, took notes, and we could tell they were listening to what we wanted. We also will get our own engraved brick in the park to represent our wedding day. Super cool!
