Morris Arboretum is stunning.  I don’t know much about Bartrams Gardens, but I know people have weddings there also.

Winterthur has a Longwood Gardens feel. After all, it was the same family who created both estates! The reflecting pool at Winterthur is a gorgeous spot for saying “I do.” We strongly considered Winterthur until we found our venue.

And since it’s in Delaware, you save a little on sales tax.

I had been looking for exactly the same thing and found the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park.  It’s PERFECT for us!!  Feel free to message me if you have any questions about it.

Check out the Old Mill in Rose Valley, PA. It’s not exactly a Longwood Gardens feel, but it’s a beautiful, historic, rustic building with a gorgeous natural setting. Flowers, bamboo garden, a little meadow for the ceremony, and a (rather deep) creek. Also, I may be biased because it’s my venue!

Also, I’ve visited the Stone Barn, so if I can be helpful at all, let me know!

Does anyone know why Longwood doesn’t do weddings?  They say on their website that they can host a formal gala for up to a thousand people.  Why can’t they host a wedding for 200?  It makes no sense to me.  Why would they turn away the money when they’re basically already doing functions that are even more formal and complicated than a simple wedding reception?
