Nestled in the picturesque Finger Lakes region of New York State, Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion State Historic Park is one of America’s few remaining Victorian estates. Sonnenberg, meaning “Sunny Hill” in German, was built by Frederick and Mary Thompson as a summer home in the late 1800s. Sonnenberg features a 40-room mansion and nine beautiful historic gardens of the world created by Mary Clark Thompson 100 years ago as a living tribute to her late husband. The 50-acre estate has extraordinary collections of period architecture, statuary, floral displays, fountains, and an antique greenhouse complex. Experience the beauty and romance of the Gilded Age on your special day.
