No amount of praise in this world to express how much Douglas Manor meant to us on our special day. From setting up, to saying I Do, to breaking it down. We love Douglas Manor so much!!!! – Sara Lynn Gaston

Beautiful vistas everywhere; superiorly maintained; sufficient, attentive staffing to support the wedding reception I attended. Parking attendant assisted in efficient parking. Building was immaculate; clean, well-stocked restrooms. Stage area for DJ and bar area were both very nice. Numerous minimalistic but beautiful areas for group photos. – Samantha M.

Douglas Manor is a fantastic wedding venue. The beautiful scenery made for amazing photos and a stunning ceremony. The indoor space was already so pretty that it didn’t even need much decorating! Mary Beth Rush was fantastic to work with and super accommodating. Would recommend 10000%! 😄 – Bethany M.

The service, professionalism, and hospitality at Douglas Manor was spectacular! My wife and I had our wedding and reception on the wedding grounds in April 2022 and Mary Beth and her staff diligently worked closely with us to make sure we had everything we needed and everything was covered, from arrangements, vendor selections, decorations, seating, and other logistics. We could not have asked for a more helpful staff that made our special day go by so smoothly and wonderfully. My wife and I are forever thankful! – Amos H.

Douglas Manor, thank you for such a beautiful and memorable day. Your venue is perfect. We loved the fact we could have the ceremony in one of your three locations on the property. The walk to and from the ceremony location was peaceful. It really allows you to take in the tranquility that this property has to offer. The small pond is an added bonus! The warehouse for the reception was spacious and elegant, fitted with the perfect size rooms for the bridal party. Your layout makes it extremely easy for vendors to set up, serve, etc. We have no complaints about this venue. Mary Beth made this process fun and easy. She helped us along the way with making great recommendations. This was also our first and only venue we toured, if that doesn’t say anything. – Stephen R.

We had our wedding here in January and I cannot recommend this place enough! Friendly & helpful staff, reasonable pricing, multiple options across the property for ceremony/reception, and they have a stash of decor that you can use for your event. 10 out of 10❤️ – Alexis L.
