The building features 2 stories with dressing rooms for weddings, a split bottom floor in the center with a larger room for dancing and dinner and the other side of the wall for a bar and gift area. The building has a full room setup for a buffet and on the other side of the building is room for lots of guest tables. There is a drive up area for dropping off guests or parking at the bottom of the hill. Staff has been on hand to bring guests up on golf carts to the facility for the events. The main room on the south side of the building has been a place where music and dancing usually happens. There's not a lot of space for dancing or a band, DJ or musician. It's best for a small to medium size setup. There's also nice decor such as a fireplace, staircase and pillar style separators.
The Tuckahoe Mansion in Jensen Beach doesn't have in house catering so you will have to look around for your preferred catering service and bar service. There is staff that runs the Mansion at Tuckahoe and can set everything up for you. I believe Martin County parks and recreation is in charge of the facility. For those of you having a ceremony, cocktail hour and reception for your wedding, there's a lot of space for the entire thing. There's a nice area down the hill with a small stage area for ceremonies. For you musicians there's power right on the stage. You can put your archway right on the stage and line the guests chairs in front facing the stage. It's a little bit of a walk from the ceremony to the mansion building. The Mansion at Tuckahoe also has a super large patio area on the north end great for cocktail hours and even the reception. But keep in mind about weather, you may need a tent if you're going to be outside at certain times of the year.
For your photographer or videographer the Mansion at Tuckahoe offers some nice scenery and backgrounds for those great photos. The waterway is on the east side of the building along with the park area and nice stairway shots. The layout of this building is pretty creative and offers a place for every part of your event. We've worked both indoors and outdoors at the facility. During the spring and summer it's pretty warm so you may want to consider having your event inside. This facility is great for a number of events from weddings to Sweet 16s and corporate affairs to company picnics.
Here is my critique section of the post. Overall it's a great building for most events. The layout inside can be a little difficult for your entertainment needs as it's a long room with a limited space once you have tables in it. It's capable of holding about 80-100 guests indoors and up to 150 guests outdoors comfortably. I give the Tuckahoe Mansion an 8 out of 10. You will have to look into your own catering and bar. Plus setting up the rooms how you want can take a little thought. The site is a beautiful building and fun, relaxing venue for that ocean beachy atmosphere. Having the upstairs rooms are really nice for changing attire during a wedding. We didn't get to speak to the staff while there as they were extremely busy and only a few were on site. This is definitely an option for anyone looking for a unique venue in Jensen Beach or in the treasure coast for that matter.
