Have you dreamed of having an outdoor wedding ceremony? We can help you make this dream come true!
At this time, Loose Mansion has one 600 sq. ft. balcony (on top of the portico) that is a possibility for an intimate, lovely, outdoor wedding ceremony for a group of about 30 guests or less. This makes a particularly pretty setting in the fall when the leaves on the large tree next to the portico change to a beautiful yellow!
Other than this one outdoor location on our property for a small ceremony, we refer couples to the many parks, fountains and outdoor spaces in close proximity to Loose Mansion, including Loose Park, Mill Creek, Theis Park, and Swope Memorial!
In the case of inclement weather, Loose Mansion can eliminate the stressful worry associated with it by providing an “alternate site” for your ceremony inside the mansion! Typically when you have a “Plan B”, you don’t need it! Join the many couples who have enjoyed a beautiful outdoor park ceremony and an elegant Loose Mansion reception … and leave the worrying to us!
Loose Mansion offers wedding coordination services for your ceremony, whether it takes place outside or at Loose Mansion! And, not to worry if the park isn’t available for a ceremony rehearsal! Just schedule your Rehearsal Dinner at Loose Mansion, and we’ll use inside space to rehearse for your outdoor wedding! If the weather on your wedding day is too hot, too cold, too windy or too wet, everyone will also be well-rehearsed for the “Plan B” to happen inside the mansion!
