Thanks! Location looks awesome. I spoke with Jeffrey A Catering and they couldn’t get the price down enough to be even close to my budget. They were about $6,000 over with a very limited menu and that didn’t include the venue rental! It has been difficult trying to make it work with 200 people but I am getting close to making a decision. Thanks!
I dont know if it would under your budget, since catering is seperate, but I’m using Morris Aboretum of U Penn — definitely unique! Check it out!
Oh! I forgot to add, but Morris Arboretum gives the option to have your reception in A TREE HOUSE!?!?! I’m a massive tree hugger, so this was right up my alley lol. Good luck with your hunt!
im terrible at this today, not the whole reception, just cocktail hour lol. Ok. NOW im done lol
Try Rose Bank Winery, its in bucks county but its an awesome space.
You HAVE to check out Jeffrey Miller Catering. They have a few exclusive contracts with venues in the Phildelphia area. Their packages are awesome, food is delicious, and includes the rental items you listed above. I booked my wedding with them at the American Swedish Historical Museum in FDR park because I really wanted an outdoor space, but they have the Racquet Club in Philadelphia too, and a few others. Plus, they include the cake which is a $$ saver. I highly recommend them!!
not sure if you found a venue yet, but you might want to check out the Lake House Inn in Perkasie. Beautiful and unique.
I’m not sure how many people you are planning to have since that will play into the cost, but my caterer Jeffery Miller catering has several rustic style venues. I am getting married at the John J Audubon Center. They also have the Anthony Wayne house. You can find more info on partyspace.com. Jeffery Miller also does a Bistro Menu that is less than most other menus. Their food is also pretty great. Good luck!
Thanks for all of the input! I decided on Brandywine Manor House for the reception. Still finalizing the caterer but I have narrowed it down to 2!

@Fed12 Have you tried any of the Jeffery Miller Catering locations? They have the John J Audubon Center and the Anthony Wayne house which are both very rustic. They also have a bistro menu that is a bit less per head then their traditional menus. They may be able to work with you. I’m doing the bistro menu myself and the food is very tasty.
My fiancée and I are getting married at Pen Ryn on Dec 10th, 2017. Since we booked so far in advance and we’re getting married off season we ended up paying 84$ per person. We have an open bar, hot chocolate bar, open bar, coat check, valet, tons of food options. They even added in chargers and linens for free. I would say it pays to ask what they can customize (they subsititued several things for us) and be willing to look at other dates!
