The Moore Mansion has seen a lot in its 108 years. It’s been a private residence, a restaurant and has even survived a fire. Owners Debra and Brad Peck have worked on restoring the historic home and in doing so have turned it into the Tri-Cities’ favorite wedding and event venue.
2015 was a very busy year, with 30 weddings. “This year we have 17 or 18, which is a real easy year,” Debra Peck said.
The Pecks purchased the historical gem in 2004, after it had sat vacant for three years with extensive fire and water damage after an arson in 2001.
“Two days before the city was court ordered to tear it down we stepped in,” Peck said. “We had no idea how much it meant to the people of the Tri-Cities. We just felt like it was a job that somebody needed to do.”
Though still a work in progress, the Pecks have worked hard to restore the home to its historical glory and have held about 200 weddings on site over the last 10 years.
All weddings, proms and fundraisers are held outdoors on the mansion’s immaculate grounds. Special moments during wedding receptions, such as the bouquet toss, cake cutting and the couple’s first dance are done on the mansion’s large porch or balcony so guests can easily watch.
“I love weddings, to me that’s my reward because that day is so special for the couple,” Peck said. “I love all my brides. I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t love them.”
