We had our reception on the grounds of Broadview Mansion with no access to the inside. It was absolutely gorgeous! Doug is super helpful, although know that you may not use real glasses anywhere on the property! This wasn't disclosed to us until about 7 months after we signed the contract but now you know!! (Also note they don't allow beer or liquor--only wine.) The giant oak trees, big front porch, cobblestone street, bell tower, and large fenced in area were just what we were looking for for our outdoor reception. We even made lawn games our guests played and there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and enjoy the property.
