"Cheney Mansion was my wedding venue. It is a gorgeous venue, the website really doesn't do it justice, you must see the place for yourself, so do go in for a tour. The staff was fabulous, easy to work with and very responsive. " —Holly P

"During the 15 months prior to my wedding, I dealt with the majority of the staff at the Cheney. I felt that all were professional and accommodating. It is such a beautiful place to have a wedding. My caterer has worked with the Cheney for a long time and I think that relationship helped me in the end. My caterer knew what the Cheney expected and how to get things done. All the woman that work there were very sweet to me." —Hillary P
