Lehmann Mansion | Wedding Venue


The Lehmann Mansion was originally built in 1912 as a summer home for Edward J. Lehmann and his family; now, it’s a significant element of the Village of Lake Villa’s history. Beautifully restored to its original style and grandeur, the Lehmann Mansion is equipped with a formal dining room, private suites for the bride and groom, acres of beautifully-maintained grounds for your wedding photos, and more. Since reopening in 2004, the Lehmann Mansion has hosted more than 100 weddings.

Ceremony & Reception Locations


The Lehmann Mansion has been lovingly restored both inside and out; if you’re planning on hosting an intimate wedding, the ground floor rooms are the perfect backdrop for your ceremony, with hardwood floors, multiple antique fixtures, and plenty of windows for natural light.
