History

Selwyn G. Blaylock built this magnificent summer home on 44 acres of prime waterfront real estate which was finished in 1935, in order to have a place to entertain his business guests, high-ranking military officials, and dignitaries from around the world. This structure is one of the first examples of Tudor-style architecture in North America. Boasting 16,000 square feet, there is plenty of room for your families and bridal parties, which makes us the perfect venue.

    Blaylock's gardens are such a beautiful place to get married. The scenery is amazing and the staff is very friendly. It is pretty pricey and you have to pay extra for chairs/tables/use of BBQ etc, but I still think it was worth it in the long run.

    One downfall is that the bridal suite isn't really set up to get ready in. I was doing my own hair/makeup and the only full length mirror is behind the door in the bathroom, there isn't much space to put makeup/hair supplies. It would be difficult for a professional makeup artist to have a space to put their kit. On behalf of my groom, I wish they would have some sort of meat included in the breakfasts (which, while delicious, had egg but no meat.)

    The bed was super comfortable and overall we had an amazing day.

    Hello Michelle
    We are so happy you posted a review on the Wedding Wire. Thank you for your nice comments. Since your wedding, things have changed considerably. The Bridal suite has had a complete makeover with a large mirrored vanity in the bathroom and a full-length mirror in the suite. We now supply a full rounded breakfast for our guests which does include a meat selection. We have also combined our wedding packages to include all the rentals if so desired. Thanks again Michelle and we hope to see you on your anniversary some time. Cheers
