WEDDINGS AT HAVISHAM HOUSE
A special place for your most special day!
If you want charm, history, modern luxury, uniqueness, beauty and class, you definitely want a Havisham wedding. We renovated our historic homes in 2016, opened our doors as overnight rentals on the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail, along the Shawnee National Forest in 2017. We began having weddings in our courtyard and in our main house, so we decided to build a 200 guest event pavilion in 2020. It is a wedding venue choice you will treasure for a lifetime. There is nothing like it in the Midwest.
Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram. We post photos of our homes, property, pavilion, weddings, and events. Please call 866-495-6020 if you have any questions or want to book a tour.
About Our Venue
Our outdoor event pavilion is just steps away from our two historic homes at Havisham House. It is covered with a copper metal roof and has open sides. We offer two restrooms, a portable bar, antique side buffet, farmhouse sweetheart table, whiskey/wine barrels, Victorian couch and loveseat, a beautiful stone arch entry and stone wall backdrop for your head table, concrete floor, ceiling fans, stunning chandeliers, etc. Stairs descend from the main house into the large grass courtyard, with a winding sidewalk leading to the stone arch of the pavilion. Our property is full of mature trees and landscaping. Our pavilion is surrounded on two sides by a creek and lush tree line.
If you want modern luxury with historic charm, a Havisham House wedding is just for you. Photos from your wedding will be stunning and unique. The main house is the perfect area for brides and bridesmaids to get ready. It is full of natural light and has such amazing character. The carriage house can be used for out-of-town guests, or it is a convenient area for the groom and groomsmen to get ready.
We understand budgets. We offer a monthly payment plan. Our pricing is set so you can focus on your other vendors, such as photographers, caterers, flowers, etc. A Havisham House wedding is an experience, not just a wedding venue. We have two historic homes, built in 1892. These homes are included in your wedding weekend for lodging. Each home sleeps six guests. We provide tables, chairs and linens for the amount of guests you expect in our event pavilion.
We don’t want you to have to rush on the one of the most blessed days of your life. That is why we offer our Essential and Evermore packages – – – these allow you time before your wedding to plan, decorate, and relax. They also offer you a chance to sleep in, enjoy the moment, and not worry about rushing to clean up and check out. Just relax!
Our contract is simple and based on your wedding package choice. It is due at the time of deposit to reserve your date.
You are not limited to using our “preferred” vendors for our property. If you have a favorite caterer, photographer, etc., we are happy to welcome them to Havisham House. But, if you just need ideas, we have a list of vendors we have used and highly recommend. This list below also includes nearby lodging options for your guests.
