"I just had to write to say THANK YOU!!!! Nicole was so wonderful throughout this whole process and such a fantastic help on our wedding day. I wouldn’t have wanted to go through my wedding day with any other coordinator than her. From the bottom of my heart, I thank her for being there every time I needed anything and for being such the wonderful person that she is. She knew how badly we wanted to get married outside and there is NOTHING that we would change about how our day went. It was beyond perfect! Picking The Mansion for our special day was the best choice – not only because the space is perfect but because so is Nicole and the rest of the staff. I only wish I could do it again! So, thank you, thank you, thank you. I really can’t say it enough!"

"We planned our wedding in under 4 months!!! I could not have lived without all the help from the staff at The Mansion and The Mansion Network vendors – Bill Chisnell Productions and Amanda from Big Catering were amazing!!! They really went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect!
"Our entire experience at The Mansion was incredible! It was wonderful waking up at The Mansion the morning of the wedding, having an awesome breakfast by Chef Winston, and then having my hair and make-up done at The Mansion. (The bathroom in the Bridal Suite is amazing!!! It was my personal spa for the day.) I felt like I was able to really enjoy the whole day instead of rushing around to different places. The ceremony and reception were beautiful – and we had a blast dancing outside under the tent!"

The Mansion was the perfect venue and working with all of you was truly a pleasure. You made the planning process and our wedding weekend a pure joy.

"First let me say – Thank you! This was not just a wedding celabration for us, but a celebration of life.You see, when Leah was 13, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and told I would not live to see her graduate High School – let alone see her married. All through the treatments it was the thought of her wedding day that got me through. This day had to be perfect and, thanks to your staff, we had a perfect wedding. Our guests are still talking about the wonderful time they had. Again: Thank you for making my DREAM come true. I wanted her wedding day to be an event and at The Mansion this dream came true."

Wedding Reception on November 13, 2010 at The Mansion at Maple Heights
“Our experience with The Mansion was more perfect than we could have ever imagined. From the day we started planning to the day after our wedding, the staff at The Mansion was always there to help us. Both the rehearsal and the wedding day ran so seamlessly we did not have anything to worry about – every single detail was taken care of and even things I didn't consider were throughly thought through.
"Working with Bill at Bill Chisnell Productions was more than a pleasure – it was just amazing. From the beginning I knew he could interpret what we were looking for – in the vagueness we gave him – and all of the flowers turned out better than I could have ever imagined. They were the best centerpieces I have ever witnessed at a wedding – and many of our guests agreed. Either he or someone else was quick to get back to me and always helpful. His demeanor was always professional but friendly and welcoming. I cannot say enough about him.
"Working with Mosaic was easy as pie. They sent samples quickly to both my parents in CT and myself and were always friendly, helpful and easy to get along with. Everything with them worked out seamlessly and it was so easy it felt like I didn't even have to think. Even when things changed last minute, everything was precise and the linens turned our perfectly.
"I would also like to add the staff of The Mansion was so professional, from helping organize the ceremony to the little touches of bringing all of the gifts to our room at the end of the night with a bottle of champagne. The Mansion was the best choice we ever could have made in planning our wedding. Everything was stress-free and I actually enjoyed my night instead of worrying over what was going to happen next or is someone going to do this – it was all taken care of.”

"A HUGE thanks to Chukky and his staff for making our wedding day so much more than we thought it could ever be! From the very first moment that we met Chukky and toured the Mansion, nearly 1 year prior to our event, we knew that there was absolutely no other venue for us to consider. To say that our expectations were exceeded can not fully address just how grateful and appreciative we are to Chukky, his staff, and all of his Partners that work together with him.
"To have our family and friends express these same sentiments only adds to our gratitude. Chukky, thank you again for making the entire experience such a memorable one!"

"On July 24, we had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Mansion at Maple Heights. What an exceptional experience! The ceremony was beautiful and well- organized, as was the reception. Chukky and his staff were professional, efficient, and very responsive to our needs. Christine and Heidi provided the perfect combination of nurturing and responsiveness, while Chukky ran the show with the precision of a coach. As a result, our most important day was as beautiful and special as we hoped it would be. Our guests have continued to rave about the event too, saying not only was it classy and beautiful, but the party was rockin! Thanks to all!"

"It really was a perfect day. I can't stop saying to Chris, 'Oh, I loved how this happened and that happened…' I especially loved how we were able to move the dance floor outside. I think that really "made" the event! People called and texted us all day the next day to tell us how much fun they had. We had such a wonderful time and sincerely thank The Mansion for all that you did for us."

"After several months of research and on-site visits, we finally selected The Mansion at Maple Heights as the venue for our wedding – both ceremony and reception. What a fantastic choice! In all of Pittsburgh, there really is no better place for a wedding than this gorgeous mansion located in the middle of beautiful Shadyside.
"The Mansion is easily accessible, yet very private and tranquil as it is gated and a few short minutes away from any main street in this already quiet neighborhood. The Mansion is simply gorgeous. The magnificent stone façade, stained glass windows, elegant woodwork, and chandeliers provided an elegant background for our photographs. In addition to this, the rooms available for the wedding party to prepare in are extremely comfortable and spacious, which proved to be a major difference-maker for us. The personal attention to the event details and to the needs of our guests from the friendly staff ensured that the day went as smoothly as we envisioned.
"Our wedding day was everything we hoped for and more. It was an intimate, warm, and unique event, and much of that can be attributed to The Mansion at Maple Heights. We highly recommend this venue to anyone after our enjoyable experience. Finally, all event details and guest needs were attended to perfection by the friendly staff headed by Chukky Okobi, the ever-present and always ready to help Wedding Planner Extraordinaire."

"All of our friends and family have called us to tell us what an incredible wedding it was. They can't stop talking about The Mansion, the general atmosphere, the rooms, the flowers and the food.
"Chukky: My aunt who is blind will NEVER stop talking about the special time you took to share your Super Bowl ring with her. You are the perfect host. Your attention to detail in amazing. We could not have asked for anything more. We are still glowing. The fact that we can not think of one thing we would have changed means it was the BEST.
