The Manor

When I arrived at The Manor, I was in awe; yep mouth open, of the beauty of the outdoor area.  Not just the Villa itself, but the landscaping, as well as the fountain area designated for outdoor weddings.  This is an 8600 square foot Mediterranean Mansion filled with chandeliers, crystal, and porcelain tile.  With a 300 guest capacity, there are also doors that lead outside to a 4000 sq. foot covered balcony where you can walk around the complete facility.  There is a 2100 square foot enclosed, air conditioned patio complete with chandelier for dining, dancing or extra seating.

Nancy and her husband, Ross, own this beautiful facility.   I had the pleasure of meeting both of them.  Nancy greeted me at the door with a large smile.  I had read over many of the reviews for The Manor,  so I already knew that her clients loved her bubbly personality and attention to detail.  When I  do venue tours, I love the owners to treat me as they would a client;  so I can see how their personalities truly are.  Nancy did not disappoint.   I began to realize not only all this venue had to offer but also the attention to detail she indeed put into each and every event!  She gets excited talking about what she does!!!  I love that!

The venue is already beautifully decorated, though if you would like anything added or changed, Nancy is there to take care of all of your wishes.  She has 11 employees with microphones in their ears, so at anytime during your event, if anything is needed, one of her employees will take care of it immediately.

The Manor is a two story facility.  Guests have a choice to use the stairs  or take an elevator; and of course Nancy has someone to run the elevator and help any guests if they need assistance.  So as soon as the wedding is over and guests come in for the reception, they are lead upstairs;  while the couple, along with their wedding party and parents,etc., stay downstairs for photos.  This only takes about 15 minutes, because Nancy has everything planned and  precoordinated with the couple and photographer.

All lights are dimmed during the reception because Nancy has 100 candles lit throughout the facility…even in the fireplace.  While the guests are upstairs, looking over the railing to the area below, the DJ announces, “Ladies and Gentlemen we gather around the balcony for the first dance – ladies and gentlemen I present Mr. and Mrs……”

As Nancy and I walked through this beautiful and timeless facility, she explained to me about her events and the couples she’s had…and just hearing her speak reiterated to me, that she loves what she does!  She loves each couple and makes sure that each wedding is exactly what they want.  She looks at them as family…and reading her reviews I saw they too end up feeling the same way about her.  How cool is that!!!

The bridal dressing room is perfect in size and has everything the bride and the wedding party needs.  Nancy makes them cookies and chocolate covered strawberries!  That speaks volumes about the special treatment she gives each couple.  The dressing room is available 6 hours prior to the event, giving plenty of time to do hair, makeup, etc.,  all at The Manor.

If you are having an outdoor wedding near the fountain, Nancy has torches around the fountain as well as candles lit up on the fountain and down the aisle.

All linens, chairs, chair covers, etc., are included for indoor and outdoor weddings, as well as the catering area.  Though everything is already setup , she will move tables, chairs, etc. to the wishes of each couple.

The family seriously doesn’t have to do a thing…Nancy and Ross, as well as her crew, take care of everything; even the smallest details like the pins for the money dance, or one of the biggest details… getting all of the cards and gifts together and taking them to the designated car.  They’ll  take the top of the cake off for the couple for their one year anniversary and pack it away,  making sure it’s put in the right car.  So when the couple are ready to leave, every detail has been taken care of and the couple and family leave with no worries at all!
