Phillippi Estate Park Weddings
Phillipi Estate Park and Edson Keith Mansion
The Phillipi Estate Park is an incredible historic landmark which offers its visitors a glimpse into the life of an ancient Indian civilization. Phillipi Creek was once a dwelling place of Manasota Indians and the Park protects one of their prehistoric middens and other archeological sites. In 1916, the Keith family purchased the 60 acre parcel and commissioned architects from Chicago to build an Italian Renaissance inspired mansion. The lavish mansion currently serves as an establishment for social events.
The mansion has all the characteristics of a classic luxury wedding venue. It contains a large living room with 3 sets of French doors. There are two twin sunrooms (east and west) on either side of the living room. The east sunroom has a stunning view of the mansion’s rose garden as well as a door to access the garden, guest park, and the private parking lot. The living room, sunrooms and the library provide a space for approximately 150 seated meals. Another great feature is the mansion’s original staircase. This provides an opportunity for the couple and/or the wedding party to engage in the classic descent down the latter. This moment captured will make for an essential addition to the wedding album. The second floor of the mansion includes the bride’s room, which provides a vast private space for all of the bride’s preparatory needs.
The outdoor area of the mansion includes an 86 foot long open terrace and a gazebo. The terrace is an ideal space for an entertainment setup and/or a beverage serving station. The gazebo, positioned on a large open space, can serve as an outdoor wedding venue which can accommodate approximately 60-75 guests. Other features of the estate include a fishing pier, nature trails and picnic tables.
The mansion grounds provide a variety of entities that can be utilized based on the couple’s preferences. The array of greenery surrounding the park provides for stunning imagery of Florida’s nature. This is a setting designed to satisfy a couple’s taste for simple luxury. Founded on the remains of a prehistoric civilization, the Phillipi Estate Park along with the Edson Mansion create a unique wedding venue which combines modern opulence with ancient antiquity.
