Situated in the heart of downtown Toms Rivers, NJ, Mathis House is a Victorian wedding venue standing as an elite example of period architecture. The former home of Thoman A. Mathis, this historic building embraces the Dutch Revival aesthetic with its grand porch and portico. This elegant mansion has seen many a graceful soiree through the prohibition era and beyond. Today, this characterful venue boasts a rich tapestry of history, antique furnishings, and blissful to-be-weds making their mark. Built in 1897, Mathis House is a magnificent three-story structure complemented by pristine lawns and the beautifully preserved carriage house. Arriving through the property's impressive circular driveway, guests will feel instantly transported to a sophisticated by-gone era. The effect is only heightened entering through the mansion's aged wooden front doors. Inside, an alluring foyer awaits, breaking off into a series of tasteful function areas, including the Parlor Room, formal Dining Room, and library. On the first floor, the Breakfast Room and Sea Glass Room both feature plush decor and exquisite formal seating. The awe-inspiring wooden oak staircase is an evocative backdrop for debuts and wedding portraits. Passing by the baby grand piano, to-be-weds can access a gorgeous selection of five guest suites on the second floor alongside an inviting gathering room. The venue is perfectly suited for micro weddings of up to 60 people, with the option of holding the ceremony on the nearby Jersey Shore beaches. The Mathis House is best known for its Victorian Afternoon Tea, which includes all the homemade delights synonymous with the upscale event. For summer weddings, the wraparound porch is ideal for an outdoor dining event where guests can indulge in the in-house chefs' delicious menu. There is also ample opportunity to host a shower, engagement party, or pre-wedding event with meal options for every budget. The team offers a complimentary wedding tasting and tour of the Inn by appointment where couples can explore all possibilities.
