Experience the splendor of the Northeast’s most breathtaking landscapes as you celebrate your special day. Nestled within the expansive 2,100-acre expanse of the Crane Estate, your event will be nothing short of unforgettable. From winding salt marshes to endless stretches of barrier beach, and crowned by a majestic hilltop mansion, the Crane Estate offers a setting of unparalleled beauty.

Originally purchased in 1910 by Chicago industrialist Richard T. Crane, Jr., the land that now comprises the Crane Estate captivated him with its natural allure. Over the next two decades, Crane collaborated with some of America’s foremost architects and landscape designers to craft his summer retreat. Perched atop the hillside with commanding views of the Atlantic, the area known as Castle Hill became the focal point of Crane’s vision.

In 1928, Castle Hill reached its pinnacle with the completion of a magnificent 59-room Stuart-style mansion, masterfully designed by the acclaimed architect David Adler. Today, this historic gem is affectionately known as The Great House on The Crane Estate, standing as a testament to the grandeur of a bygone era. Alongside the mansion, Castle Hill and its surrounding 165 acres have been designated as a National Historic Landmark, preserving its legacy for generations to come.

Your special day at the Crane Estate comes with a host of included services to ensure a seamless and unforgettable experience. From an on-site day-of event manager to dedicated bridal attendant service, as well as professional bar and kitchen staff, every detail is meticulously handled, allowing you to savor every moment of your celebration amidst this unparalleled setting.
