Cylburn Mansion




Snuggled against I-83 in the city’s Cold Springs neighborhood, the Cylburn Mansion is hidden within the lush landscape of the Cylburn Arboretum. This striking structure was built in the late 19th century and provides a spectacular venue for weddings hoping to invoke the quintessential charm of a historic manor while still enjoying the natural beauty of nature. Exchange your vows in one of the arboretum’s flourishing gardens, invoking the timeless appeal of Mother Nature on your big day! Enjoy a relaxing cocktail hour on the expansive porch, an airy venue that offers gorgeous views of the surrounding foliage. The mansion’s elegant interior creates an ideal setting for a sophisticated reception, complete with rich dark woods, romantically stained windows, and ornate white paneling. If you’d prefer to take advantage of the house’s startling architecture, you can even hold a wonderful outdoor reception beneath a delicate white tent overlooking finely manicured lawns and topiary!
