Yes, we ask your help in protecting this special structure by observing the following:
no tape, nails, rope or other material can be used to attach anything to Sydonie's walls or trees without prior discussion with the owners. It is Sydonie Mansion's sole discretion as to what will be allowed.
Encourage your guests to wear sensible shoes for comfort and safety in an outdoor setting. no stiletto heals are allowed on the front porch wooden floors with out heal covers

Local zoning does not allow the direct sale of alcohol. However, you may serve alcohol by a licensed caterer.
All weddings and events are required to purchase a day of liability insurance policy which also covers the serving of alcohol. There are several companies that provide this coverage. Check out this link from Statewide Insurance The policy is from Travelers and they cover you for the event day only and are not expensive. They can also provide you with very helpful additional coverage in the event of an injury, cancellation, etc.
We are continuing to restore Sydonie Mansion, so please forgive us if certain sections of the mansion are under repair. They should not impact your event.
Sydonie's front lawn is a beautiful spot for your wedding with moss covered oaks and a view of the lake. In case of rain, there is a large covered front porch that can accommodate 150 chairs if the rain were to make an untimely appearance.
The front yard is large enough to set up a tent if you desire to ensure you have plenty of covered space for your guests. Tent rental fees would be your expense.
Sydonie's Friday and Saturday prices start at $4000 for up to a maximum of 150 guests for an outside only event. This gives you up to 10 hours of access including set up and take down.
