Wedding

Explore the mansion. Envision your celebration. Experience the estate.

You become a part of the long-standing history of The Bush House Estate when you tie the knot at this beautiful venue. The mansion, built in 1847, has witnessed the march of time and collected mementos: strips of Marie Antoinette’s wallpaper grace a bathroom, marble fireplaces imported from Italy, the unique three-story cantilevered staircase inviting guests to the cozy rooms above.

The house itself can accommodate 88 guests with a dance floor during off-season, and in season the grounds can host as many as 200 guests for dinner in the gala tent on the lawn. Choose your own caterer and menu, provide your own alcohol and customize your reception to suit your imagination.
Your memories, your photographs, and your guest’s stories will revolve around your day, and the elegance and romance you’ll find here.

Wedding availability

The Bush House Estate is available for weddings and receptions any day of the week. Weekends are most popular, and we offer generous access to the grounds for planning and hosting your wedding.

Saturday:

Exclusive use of the property from 9 AM to 11 PM. Access to the estate on Friday PM to drop off/set-up decorations.
 
Sunday:

If you are seeking ways to limit spending or you’re adaptable, Sunday and weekday weddings are just as elegant, at a lesser rate. Because of limited reception set-up time, decorations are typically more moderate. Availability is the day of the event, 12 PM – 10 PM with a six-hour event. Ceremony rehearsal time varies based on individual schedules.
