    Great Outdoor Space

    We were able to book Alverthorpe Manor at Abington Art Center last minute in August 2020 for our October 10, 2020 wedding. We were looking for a place to accommodate our guests outdoor due to COVID. We were able to host our ceremony outside and the reception under their covered Pavilion. Jeanne was really great with helping us as we booked the venue from out of town. She was able to give us a FaceTime tour of the venue and answer any questions we had. They had a bridal suite upstairs and also a room for the guys to hang out downstairs before the ceremony started, which gave us and our bridal party a space to hang out and put our things before the ceremony. We were able to use their white chairs for the ceremony and round tables for the reception, cutting some of our costs on rentals. They had plenty of parking for our guests. There was a slight issue with a main break the week of the wedding which put the bathrooms out of commission, but they were able to rent a high end portal bathroom at no cost to us. The grounds make for some really gorgeous photos.

    Abington Art Center was the first venue we viewed and we immediately fell in love. Sam was fantastic to work with and helped us with every request. Sam was willing to work with our timeline, helped run rehearsal/the wedding day and any time we needed anything (including things we forgot at the hotel) her and the team found a solution. Our guests loved the Center, the art, and the surrounding nature. We did a lot of our own decorations including the flowers and the Center was more than happy to work with us. We could not have been happier with our selection.

    Amazing venue-beautiful landscape- ability to have wonderful wedding despite some rain!! Guests loved the place and beautiful pictures using the windows in the bridal suite, the woodsy areas, the staircase down in the lobby. Amazing areas for open bar and apps. Thank you to Samantha (coordinator) for making the magic happen! Affordable, but lovely place!

We had the pleasure of working an event at Abington Art Center this past October. Sam was always very communicative and made the process leading up to the wedding enjoyable and easy. She was very flexible and easy to work with. Highly recommend the Art Center for your wedding or other special event! Looking forward to working there again soon :)
