  • Loved this venue! This spot has so many good opportunities for portraits and also is an incredible backdrop for just organic and candid photography as well. It has a lot of variety and gives you ample options to help with some flexibility throughout the day. Can't wait to shoot here again!
  • We went for Thanksgiving and it was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀. The Sunday Buffet is also so so delicious. The level of preparation, dedication, and commitment to excellence is evident in everything they do here. The estate is impeccable. The staff are hands down the best! The food is magnificent. From the sides to the main courses and the desserts. Everything is prepared on the highest level. Absolutely amazing! Also say hello to Chef David he is so a good person and is so dedicated. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Fantastic venue with stunning views inside and out! We absolutely love working at this gorgeous venue and its excellent staff. Thank you so much to the staff and our wonderful clients for having us capture such beautiful pictures at the Grand Island Mansion.
  • Our 1st time here and it was for the Easter Brunch. The exterior grounds are very warm and inviting as we walked from the parking area. The hostess greeted us at the front door to the mansion. She offered my wife and I a drink of white Zinfandel and juice. Excellent. She seated us at our table in a very beautiful dining area . Our table was a quiet romantic spot off to the side and close to a fountain. We were greeted by a team of 2 fantastic servers. They were very helpful in explaining the setup for food, and general information about the mansion itself. We were then offered Mimosas and shown the way to the buffet. The buffet contained a good variety of food choices. All that we tried were excellent. The fresh greens for salad, a pear dressing, 2 choices of bread. Next were the cubed beets, asparagus with carrots, mushroom crepes, ham, salmon and prime rib with au jus and horseradish. We both went for a second but less food trip since the dessert table glares at you when you first enter the food area. We of course had some dessert and coffee to top things off
  • My best friend had her gorgeous Beauty and the Beast themed wedding here and pictures do not do it justice. I felt as if I should be wearing a late 16th century ball gown. This place boasts Baroque-inspired architecture complete with towering colonnades, Roman sculptures, Rennaissance-style paintings, manicured topiary, and classical music serenading every corner. It transports you to a time long past, and yet you feel right at home. Every room has its theme that pays homage to a different artist, and some have an exquisite bathroom with a spa-like tub with marbling fit for royalty. The staff are extremely friendly as well! One thing I will say is the showers are extremely cold and take time to heat up, so plan accordingly!
