This place. Oh, this place! Haseltine Estate is essentially a petite little castle for the perfect fairytale wedding right here in Springfield. Built in 1897, the property boasts 10 acres of gorgeous green space, mature trees, and rich character throughout the mansion and grounds. When I visited, I would have jumped up and down and squealed (except it was my first time to officially meet the owners, Tyler and Natalie, and I didn’t want them to think I was…you know…weird.)
Actually, I may have squealed. I can’t really remember in the haze of giant windows, glistening chandeliers, and sweeping vistas.
Haseltine Estate can accommodate up to 200 guests for outdoor ceremonies and receptions, with more intimate gatherings taking place inside the mansion. Original staircases, a sparkling pool, stone walls and a whitewashed barn are just a handful of the backgrounds you’ll find for spectacular photo ops.
Oh, and did I mention their bridal loft? Their goal is to have the best bridal suite in Springfield.
Done: A full bathroom, kitchen, amazing furniture pieces, a balcony overlooking the peaceful tree line, and a glam makeup booth that will accommodate all those bridesmaids. The groom doesn’t have it too bad, either. He and the guys can kick it on the leather couch in the basement- Foosball, ping-pong, darts, a flat-screen TV, and a bar will keep them busy until it’s time to say “I do.”
I’m so in love with this place, I asked Tyler and Natalie if they would do the honors of kicking off our little vendor tour around the city. They agreed because they are nice like that.

Share some advice you have for brides planning their weddings.
Always hire a wedding planner, even if it is just for the day of. They will take all of the stress relating to design, décor, vendors, and even takedown from you and your family’s shoulders. It is the best money you can spend during your entire experience.
Note to readers: I promise I did not pay him to say that 😉 It’s just soooo true.
