Welcome to Windsor Manor Wedding Venue, where we celebrate love and create memories that last a lifetime. Our stunning Tudor-style architecture and European-inspired gardens make for the perfect fairytale wedding location. Our venue was originally designed by architect Willis Irvin, and we take pride in the fact that we have restored and maintained it to its original beauty. We understand that planning a wedding can be stressful, but with our attention to detail and passion for creating unforgettable experiences, we promise to make your special day exceptional.
Designed by famous architect Willis Irvin, Windsor Manor exudes storybook Tudor Revival elements such as a stucco and stone facade, diamond-paned windows, and a steep tiled roof. The interior features stained woodwork a beautiful beamed ceiling like you might see in a hunting lodge, and a large working stone fireplace, both of which were created from sandstone and trees sourced from the property.
Mr. Cole was president of the A.T. Cole Hot Blast Stove Manufacturing Company and chose Augusta for his 2,500 acre estate where he built stables for his racehorses, and used the natural springs below the house to build a large pond for his children to enjoy. There was an apple barrel in the cellar, always full of apples, a pool table, tennis courts, hunting, fishing, camping, and buggy rides with Mr. Cole who always wore a dark jacket and buttoned-up vest.
Cole sold his residence and property in 1946 to Walter and Nelle Golosky who owned N&W Camera, and a pawn shop downtown. The Goloskys were members of the Garden Club and the Augusta Riding Club and spent summers at Windsor Manor.
After sitting vacant for over 20 years and suffering from the elements, Windsor Manor was listed on Historic Augusta's "Endangered Properties" list in 2012. The estate was purchased in late 2014 by a DIY elementary school teacher with a love for architecture, quirky art, and gardening. The weddings came as a way to finance the restoration. The house has since been rewired, re-plumbed, repainted, heating and cooling replaced, the pool restored, and
