Venue Spotlight: The Glover Mansion

I have a special place in my heart for downtown Spokane wedding venue, The Glover Mansion. It was in my top two venue choices. I fell in love with the old world charm and character of the historic mansion and how the packages included EVERYTHING (even floral centerpieces!)…and when you’re planning from abroad that’s a BIG bonus! The only reason I didn’t end up choosing it was because I was having a Fall wedding (meaning it would be too cold to use their gorgeous outside space) and my wedding had too many people. But I firmly believe it’s one of Spokane’s finest wedding gems and makes an absolutely breathtaking venue year round, which makes me beyond happy that we are adding it to out Featured Venue list!

Here’s an interview with the coordination team…
