    Hidden Gem

    We looked at dozens of venues in PA and New England before we settled on Bartram's. In terms of beauty and value, nowhere else could compete. It's also a unique venue. Many of our guests who are long-time Philadelphia residents had never been there -- most likely because of the location. However, don't let that stop you. Everyone was absolutely blown away by our secret garden oasis. Our guests loved exploring the grounds and getting into the history of the place. The team at Jamie Hollander was also so great to work with and really delivered the day of our wedding. The food was plentiful and delicious, I did not stress about timeline or coordination once, and the service was A+. We had multiple guests tell us how great their server was at dinner, which I think is pretty special. They know the space inside and out and can execute weddings flawlessly, which is one of the biggest benefits of going with this venue. We also can't thank our event planner Kelly enough. She really brought every single one of our wishes and dreams to life.

    A dream venue!

    Bartram’s Garden was everything I wanted and more. The property was very well maintained and Kate was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful throughout the planning process. Kelly dealt with our constant changes and checked in with me regularly leading up to the day of. The team was fantastic and we’re always available throughout the day.

    Intimate, open air wedding with the help of an incredible crew

    Kate Conaway with Jamie Hollander Catering made our wedding at Bartram's Garden incredibly special and beautiful. Because of COVID, we postponed, significantly downsized (250 to 24 guests), moved the reception outdoors, and created a layout that allowed for strict social distancing (each couple or family had their own small table.) Kate and Jamie Hollander were with us at every step. Kate understood my vision and ran with it. The intimate, open air wedding was a dream come true especially in such lush, vibrant surroundings. The food was the best of any wedding I've attended. The staff were amazing and very professional. My husband and I want to give a special shout out to Alfonso and Costello, two of our incredible servers, who treated us like royalty! Not only did this wedding celebrate my love for my husband and our marriage but was also such a beautiful memory in a tough year for all our guests. I think small weddings should stay in style. And you won't regret getting married at the beautiful Bartram's Garden with the help of Kate and the rest of the Jamie Hollander staff. Thank you, all!
