We have several exquisite locations that can be used for your ceremony, based on your preference and the size of your party.

The favorite location by far is underneath our lovely grape arbor on the mansion grounds.  Walk down a soft, natural isle in a brilliant mix of sun and shade, while the cool breeze and scents of our gardens keep your guests comfortable. A beautiful location for all our spring, summer and fall weddings. Ceremonies under the arbor can accommodate up to 150 guests, chairs not provided.

The veranda is our second favored location for couples who are looking for the outdoor ceremony feel while keeping their guests comfortable from the sun’s intense rays. There are a number of ways to design your ceremony floor plan and multiple entrances for the bride to walk down the aisle. The veranda can seat up to 100 guests using chairs included in your Tarrywile Mansion rental agreement. Any way you design it your guests will be surrounded by beautiful garden vistas under  graceful Victorian architecture

The gazebo, surrounded by vibrant flowers during the warmer months and spectacular foliage in autumn, is a lovely location for an intimate ceremony. This location is often used for smaller weddings with 20 – 30 guests. It has been used on occasion for larger weddings where the guests are seated on the adjacent lawn facing the gazebo. Either way you use it, the Gazebo is romance personified.

Indoor ceremonies at Tarrywile are no less spectacular.  For a unique memory-worthy experience, it’s hard to beat our conservatory.  With a beautiful view of the outdoors out-shined only by the lovely plantings and decor, the conservatory provides an intimate and unique experience.  Up to 50 guests can be seated in the adjacent drawing room.

BEARS SEEN WHEN HIKING Bears normally leave an area once they have sensed a human. If you see a bear, enjoy it from a distance. Aggression by bears towards humans is exceptionally rare. DO make your presence known by making noise while hiking. Hike in groups. If you…
