About Awbury Arboretum
What makes Awbury different from other rental venues?
Awbury Arboretum is a welcoming wedding and event venue in Northwest Philadelphia, featuring the historic Cope House with wrap-around porch, Victorian floor-to-ceiling windows, landscaped gardens, and covered bluestone patio. Your celebration supports Awbury’s mission to connect our community with nature and history. Awbury welcomes all couples!
For events utilizing the seasonal dining tent on the bluestone patio, we can accommodate up to 175 guests seated. The maximum for indoor-only events is 50 guests.
Our venue is a lush arboretum with beautiful landscapes for ceremony and photos, with a secret garden our couples love to escape to. The Cope House grounds and porch are perfect for your ceremony and a sprawling cocktail hour with lawn games, cocktails and appetizers. Guests love to walk around and explore our gardens during this time. Dine under the tent on the bluestone patio (which can also serve as your rain plan for ceremony) and then move inside to the parlor rooms of the Cope House for dancing.
- Daytime Weddings most commonly begin at 12pm and end at 5pm
- Evening Weddings most commonly begin at 4pm and end at 9pm (music is required to end at 9 as we have neighbors!)
Awbury has an exclusive catering partner with Birchtree Catering, a small, female-owned business with a strong focus on local sourcing and sustainable events.
