Gazebo, Forest or Front Foyer: Endless Options

The best part about a venue that offers equally stunning interior and exterior options is that you never have to fret if Mother Nature decides to sprinkle or snow on your big day. We have a myriad of different locations on site that can easily transform into your cocktail, dining and photography sessions.

We Are Prepared When Nature Changes Plans

We celebrate love year round at Swan Manor. Regardless of the season, we have all options covered. Stay fresh from the blazing sun with our beautiful tree canopies along the property. If the rain clouds move in, our talented staff can easily move your set-up to our lovely indoor spaces. Leave the stress to us while you relax and enjoy your wedding day.

What an amazing wedding and reception we had at Swan Manor!! Dennis and Bart went above and beyond the call of duty. Throughout the entire process they were so attentive to our needs and our guest’s needs; during the planning process, the rehearsal, the ceremony and reception, they were flexible and patient with anything we asked of them.

Dennis and Bart worked alongside our caterer, DJ, cake artist, and director to make things run smoothly. They not only provided us with a beautiful venue, they helped decorate and offered some of their own flowers and plants to compliment our own.

From the valet parking to the bridal suite, it was an incredibly beautiful day and evening! We are so thankful to Dennis and Bart for their attention to detail and their desire to make our wedding day so special for us. They take so much pride in their venue and it shows! We would highly recommend Swan Manor to others for any special event!!
