In 2008 a new wedding banquet facility opened in Mars Pennsylvania. Twelve Oaks Mansion is quickly becoming a very popular location for wedding receptions and even wedding ceremonies (They have a brand new outdoor gazebo which is perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies).
Twelve Oaks Mansion is located just off of Rt. 228, directly across from The Springfield Grille. The facility sits several hundred yards up a hill and overlooks the entire area. This elevated location not only allows for an incredible view, but it also provides a very quiet location. Traffic noise from Rt. 228 is non existent at the banquet hall. When you arrive at Twelve Oaks Mansion, you will find plenty of well lit parking and easy access to the banquet facility, which is located on the ground floor. The banquet facility is handicap accessible.
When you walk through the main entrance, you arrive in an elegant marbled foyer where you are greeted with the sounds of a baby grand piano playing softly off to one side of the room (playing on it’s own I might add). There is also a spiral staircase with a balcony that overlooks the foyer. Upstairs you will find a smaller meeting room. This smaller room is perfect for use as a bridal suite, or in situations where you are holding your wedding ceremony at Twelve Oaks Mansion, it works well as a dressing room for the bride & bridesmaids.
To the left side of the foyer you will find the Library. Typically used as a cocktail room, the Library is a nice sized room with a bar, fireplace and 3 flat panel LCD televisions. These televisions are perfect for displaying a photo montage during the cocktail hour. Brides & grooms may also opt to use this room to house the Gift Table, Place Card Table & Cookie Table and there is still plenty of room for guests to mingle and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The other side of the foyer allows for access to the grand ballroom. The ballroom is a nice sized room with large windows that span 3 of the walls. The room contains a spacious built in dance floor at one end and a beautiful wooden bar at the other. Crystal chandeliers hang through out the room and provide dimmable lighting. The windows feature formal looking draperies with a golden finish. Seating is provided by comfortable fabric covered chairs, which are also gold in color.
I have had multiple opportunities to eat at Twelve Oaks Mansion and I have always enjoyed their food. All of their packages include either a House, Call or Premium Brand Bar. They also offer many upgrade options such as chair covers & Martini and specialty drink stations.
