Wedding Ceremony and Photography

Steeped with over a century of history and natural beauty, there is no better place to renew your vows or say “I Do” and begin the next chapter of forever, than Parkwood National Historic Site. Surrounded by lush gardens and architectural landscaping there are several picturesque spaces on the grounds and inside the mansion for you to choose from. You may choose to exchange your vows in the beautiful Sunken Garden or in the stunning Formal Garden in front of the fountains. The Italian Gardens located outside of the Greenhouses or the Japanese Garden in the newly restored Greenhouse is perfect for more intimate gatherings. You may also choose to immerse yourself in stunning history as you exchange vows inside the mansion in our Sunroom & Loggia.

    Great but pricey

    We chose to book here because of the movies that were filmed here, Billy Madison and X-Men to name a few. Our contact person was Suzanne. She was great in helping us organize the chairs and a/v equipment. One area that could have improved was the response time between emails. The environment for pictures is amazing! There is no smoking on the property. We were also not allowed alcohol as it was only our ceremony happening and we did not purchase a liquor license. All in all our wedding was beautiful here and Suzanne was a great help!

    Elegant wedding that exceeded our expectations.

    Parkwood was an amazing venue to hold our wedding. The interior design and decor set the stage for an elegant party. We would strongly recommend this location for an event.
