don’t know your budget, but i recently had to go to Bartram’s Garden for a studio assignment and they were setting up for a wedding…..if you haven’t been there, they have a gorgeous courtyard and the grounds are very nice….the only thing that sucks is to get to it, you have to go through an area of philly that isn’t really all that nice if you kno what i mean….

here’s the website:

I used to work for a catering company that did weddings at the Morris Arboretum. I haven’t done it for about 8 years, but back then the arboretum gave you a choice of caterer to use and you did provide your own alcohol. You could hire a bartender from the catering company also. I don’t know if it’s changed since then, but that’s how it was when I worked there. Also, make sure you look at the rose garden for your ceremony. It’s so pretty! Hope this helps!

You do provide the alcohol. It is beautiful there and September would be very pretty!

We looked at the Morris Arboretum but my mom is against outdoor receptions. It has rained on the wedding day of everyone in our family and she thinks since we choose an April wedding date we are asking for it 🙂

@MamaHusky3: We just had our June wedding at the Arboretum! We used Company’s Coming catering–we bought the alcohol and they served it. Here are some pics (we were just blogged today!) I know this is an old thread, but if you have any questions about weddings there I would be happy to help.
