Meet Our Team


Owners Eric & Whitney Shneyder had always dreamed of living in the country and running their own business and it all started with a love story of their own. 

Eric met Whitney in Culinary School in the spring of 2012 where they developed an instant connection with one another. Eric grew up in Pewaukee and Whitney is a Hartford native. 

Whitney holds degrees in Dietetics & Culinary Arts where she was able to cultivate her deep passion for the hospitality industry. Growing up she would meticulously plan tea parties and play dates with friends, not knowing her love for subtle event details would someday lead to wedding planning. 

Eric earned his degree in Culinary Arts where his passion for food flourished into a creative outlet. Combining his culinary skills with his love for the outdoors, a 12 acre property with an endless outdoor honey-to-do list fell perfectly into place. 

"We live in a fantastic community with amazing people who make Rustic Manor 1848 the unique venue it is." - Eric & Whitney Shneyder

Not only is their home full of history and humble beauty, but it stands as a testament to the love, dedication, hard work, and the unending imagination that it's owners share together. It is a home built with love for generations to come and they can finally open it's doors to share with you. 

The couple was the first married on the property in June 2014.
