Me again 🙂  I know it’s a longshot, but could you look on Craigslist to see if someone has a rustic space they would be willing to rent out for your wedding?

When I was on the venue search, someone recommended Pizzadili Winery, which is in DE so it’s a bit further out…but it looked kind of chill and rustic.  I think it’s more of a pavilion than a barn, and they don’t have a website, but if you google it you can find the phone number.  Could be worth a try!

the high point in great valley is an awesome venue, they just built a brand new barn in 2005, they actually hold their church service in there on sundays but its a beautiful space and they clear everything out for you, there is also a pre revolutionary church on the grounds with a beautiful garden, they just started doing weddings i’m thinking about having mine there cause its so cheap and there are no rules!!!!

I really liked the Barn at Birchwood.  It’s in Collegeville, PA (I think).  The women that runs the place was really, really sweet.  It ended up being too small for us, but you should check it out

Have you checked out Bartram’s Gardens?  Beautiful spot.

I second the notion on the High Point.  We almost booked it but didn’t want to get married in their church, etc.  Anyway, it’s really pretty and the interior of this place is quite nice.

In Lancaster County, about 15 miles from downtown Lancaster near a town called Willow Street, is a gorgeous place called Pheasant Run Farms.  Another we were so close to booking but for the amount of people we wanted, it wasn’t large enough in their reception room.  But, this place is GORGEOUS!  And, it’s a B&B, so if you want, you can rent out the entire place.

My husband and I just got married at a small B&B with a gorgeous rehabbed barn in New Hope, Bucks County, called Ash Mill Farm.  http://www.ashmillfarm.com  Their website doesn’t even do it justice – I’d be happy to send pictures!

The High Point in Malvern, PA is a wonderful venue. It is an open framed barn on the top of the hill with an amazing view. It is available for just the reception, you do not have to be married in the 300 year old church or be of a religious affiliation to rent the venue. Most wedding receptions have a dance floor and serve alcohol available for their guests. The barn can house 200 guest in the main part of the building and has an outside porch area below to gather before dinner.

@mipi81:  I am considering Ash Mill Farm for my wedding!  Would you be able to e-mail me any pictures from yours?

@reynaweddingbee:  

…I have not heard good things about Ashmill Farm, my friend who is engaged contacted them and she was less than thrilled.  They are way overpriced, the location is pretty but nothing special.  There is a giant wall of mirrors in the barn which was strange, and then only allow catering from their sister restaurant the Riegelsville Inn which has recently had a few bad reviews online. 

My friend settled on the Tinicum barn for her wedding…it’s stunning inside and right  on the river. 

Best of luck with your wedding planning!

Thanks for the reply!  I actually heard of Tinicum!  A friend knew someone who got married there and their wedding photos were so pretty.  We actually just booked ours at The Gables at Chadds Ford.  It’s an old dairy barn that was converted to a restaurant so it sort of has that barn appeal.  The only downfall so far is that the banquet manager, Mike, is terrible at getting back to our e-mails… I think an entire week (with a reminder email from me after having waited a week) is too long for a simple reply.  Maybe I will still look into Tinicum 😛

Hi all,

Has anyone gotten married at Ash Mill Farm, or visited, recently? I love the pictures online, and I really like the idea of a whole weekend event–wedding, afterparty, and brunch the next day.

They have sample menu prices online, but I am hoping for some more information about other costs. For example, tent/rentals, alcohol–anything else? How much, ballpark, would the venue, food and alcohol cost?

How DIY is it?

How many people do you think it can comfortably host? My wedding is likely to be around 125, and I’m afraid it’s too many.

Thanks so much!
