We are so excited to be working with a new location! "Let yourself escape to a time gone by..." at the Stetson Mansion. Built in 1886 as a winter getaway for John Stetson and his wife Elizabeth, this 10,000 sq. ft. historical landmark is your wedding dream!
Being a primarily outdoor location, this is incredible for a garden ceremony and tented reception. Stetson Mansion sits on over 2 acres of land and feature the Schoolhouse, the Carriage House, a picturesque fountain, gazebo, and meditation garden.
Are you a sucker for history? Get this...the Stetsons hosted notables such as the Astors (John Jacob Astor was one of the many unfortunate victims aboard the Titanic), the Mellons, the Vanderbilts, the Carnegies, Henry Flagler, Baron Frederick DeBary (of famed DeBary Hall), President Grover Cleveland, and King Edward VII (then Prince of Wales)! Not to mention Thomas Edison did all of the original electric in the Mansion. There is still an original working Edison circuit breaker box in the Mansion.
