"I cannot say enough nice things about Chrisman Manor! I really wanted an outdoor ceremony, however my husband was determined we have a back-up plan in case of bad weather. Chrisman Manor was exactly what we were looking for - a beautiful outdoor space, an indoor chapel if needed, and a separate, elegant room for the reception."

Saying your vows against our waterfront backdrop is nothing short of magical. Reminiscent of a “secret garden,” couples who choose this location can make a grand, sweeping entrance at the unique “door” set at the start of the aisle.
This enchanting atmosphere sets Chrisman Manor apart from all other outdoor wedding venues in Topeka, KS.

The Willow Tree Ceremony site is a picture-perfect spot to exchange vows. As you prepare to walk down the aisle, you'll begin at the stone steps. Walk down the gentle slope of our property as it opens up into this outdoor wedding ceremony site.
Conduct your ceremony under our elegant arbor, included in the rental fee, while partially shaded by a romantic willow tree overhead. We provide elegant white chairs for this ceremony site.
Indoor Chapel Venue
Whether you need to switch your outdoor ceremony to an indoor wedding venue at the last minute, or you simply prefer the more traditional and intimate ambiance of a chapel, our indoor Chapel will be perfect for you.

Chrisman Manor is a gorgeous venue with a wonderful selection of ceremony sites! I was truly looking forward to an outside ceremony down by the pond but it was a little too hot for our liking, so we chose to use the chapel instead. The venue itself is so elegant and beautiful that we barely had to use any decor to spruce it up which made clean up so easy!
