  • My daughter had her wedding reception at the Bourne Mansion August 2016 and it was absolutely amazing. Miriam and Steve are the best. They were very helpful in planning the affair and if we had any questions Miriam was quick to respond. I would definitely recommend this venue. The food and service is great and the Bourne Mansion is simply beautiful. If you ae looking to have a fairytale wedding, then the Bourne Mansion is for you!!

  • My wedding felt like a fairy tale! The grounds are gorgeous and the staff is very helpful! Only thing is wish they hid early guests away from where we were taking photos a little better.

  • The Bourne Mansion was a venue that man our wedding a dream come true. The mansion was setup perfectly for our guests as they arrived, during the cocktail hour, and then in the ballroom. The food was prepared and served perfectly. All of our guests enjoyed every bite! Main course must's were the filet mignon and the baked salmon! The professional and attentive staff were the keys to a successful evening, especially Steve the manager and maître'd. He was caring, responsive, and took care of myself and my husband the entire night. The Bourne Mansion staff worked seamlessly with our vendors from start to finish. We are the second wedding of our family to have chosen Lessing's and they continue to impress! We recommend them to our family and friends for all events.

  • My wife and I had our wedding reception at Bourne Mansion a few weeks ago and we could not have been happier with how it went. We booked the venue in March of 2014 and worked with Miriam up until about a week before the wedding. Miriam was so sweet and so helpful. Whenever we had questions, she was very responsive, and she brought lots of little details to our attention that we never would have thought of. She had so many good suggestions and recommendations, and they were all on point (examples include menu selection, bakery for the wedding cake, writing our seating arrangement on a big mirror, and many more). We enjoyed working with her so much that we were sad to be passed on to Steve, but that did not last long at all, as Steve was equally awesome. He was extremely detail-oriented and made sure everything ran smoothly the day of our wedding. We had a decently large wedding party (18 counting my wife and I) and he did a great job of getting everyone on the same page and making sure ... Read more

  • Both Steve and Miriam were helpful throughout the whole planning process and keeping us on target on our wedding day. The service, food, and venue was outstanding. We had a large wedding and Steve really helped make sure we saw all of our guests and enjoyed every second of our amazing wedding. I would absolutely recommend Lessing's and the Bourne Mansion.

  • We fell in love with Bourne Mansion during our first walkthrough, and booked almost a year and a half in advance for our June 2016 wedding. As the months ticked by, Miriam from Bourne was always very responsive to my emails asking questions about anything and everything, helpful with figuring out the details, and giving advice about vendors as well. The week before the wedding we met with Steven who manages the actual day of the wedding, and he really had everything in line. He runs a tight ship, for good reason, because on the day of our wedding whenever anything needed to be managed, Steven was right there to take care of it. When our band began playing my father daughter dance song in the middle of a regular dancing set, he sprinted over and told them to quickly change the song, saving some awkwardness for us if they had played the same song twice during the night. Throughout our reception he was always there with a fresh champagne and a cold washcloth to cool us down between danc... Read more

  • We had our wedding at Bourne Mansion on March 12. To say that it was a beautiful experience would not even do it justice!! I knew from the moment I stepped inside the mansion for a bridal showcase that it was the perfect venue for us. The mansion itself is exquisite!! The grounds are spacious and when you arrive, you are taken to another time and place. The team at Bourne Mansion/Lessings made the whole planning process a breeze. We worked primarily with Miriam, who was an absolute pleasure!!! She showed such genuine interest in our wedding. She would give us little pearls of wisdom along the way which we greatly appreciated!! The week before the wedding we met with Steve Melita, the manager and Maitre D. Steve is the man! During that meeting, he put all my worries at ease. He provided us with a timeline for our wedding day, which was extremely helpful. Finally our wedding day arrived, and everything ran smoothly, thanks to Steve and the staff at Bourne Mansion. I can't describe how st... Read more

  • We were so happy to have chosen Bourne Mansion as our wedding venue! We couldn't have asked for a better day. Miriam was super helpful to work with whenever I had questions about details of my wedding. Steve was an awesome Maitre d'! He made sure everything flowed perfectly and made sure we enjoyed every moment. The outdoor area is perfect. There were plenty of areas on the property for great photos too. We would do it all over again!

  • We had Steve as our maitre d for the night of our wedding. He went above and beyond to make sure we were not only doing everything that had to be done that night, but enjoying ourselves as well. We were confiden that our guests would have a fantastic night and that the flow of our evening would be seamless in stages hands, and we were not disappointed.

  • I wanted a Great Gatsby Themed Wedding and man, was this the place to do it! Miriam and Steve were amazing and saw to our every need. My family and friends are still raving about how this was the most magnificent wedding venue they've ever been to. The service is top-notch and the elegance of the venue is truly magnificent.

  • The Bourne Mansion was absolutely beautiful and completely exceeded my expectations for my wedding day. We were blown away when we saw the ballroom set up for our wedding,, it was gorgeous. The day ran smoothly, thanks to our Maitre'D Steve who was wonderful. Our guests raved about the food, especially the filet mignon, and the service. We added some extras to the catering package and were pleased with them, especially the pretzel stand. At times during the planning process communication with the sales staff was somewhat difficult but in the end everything worked out. I highly recommend the Bourne Mansion for a wedding venue, you will not be disappointed.

  • Bourne Mansion is actually a fantastic venue. The St. John's staff I worked with are all incredibly understanding and nice people. However, the catering company that manages the venue, Lessing's, is one of the worst vendors I've worked with - not just for weddings. They are inflexible, horrible with follow-ups and seems like the typical company that gives you attention during the sale and nearly forgets about you once the sale is made.

  • My husband and I got married July 3, 2014. We fell in love with the Bourne a Mansion from the moment we walked in. We worked closely with Ben throughout the planning process. He was prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. A few days before the wedding, we met the maître d, Steve. He went over the schedule for our reception and stuck to it that evening. Because of him, everything was well-timed and we were able to enjoy as much of our reception as possible. When we were warm from dancing, he was constantly ready with a cool cloth and cold water for my husband and myself. He was excellent. The food was great and my guests raved about it (particularly the filet mignon). Additionally, everyone got their dinner at the exact same moment. The only reason I didn't give a "5" for value is because they are a little pricey, but worth every penny. It was the wedding of our dreams. Thank you Ben and Steve!
