A Stately Mansion in a fairy-tale setting

Bellevue Hall is the ideal choice for elegant, lavish wedding ceremonies and receptions or charming, intimate gatherings and rehearsal dinners amid the towering column entrances, magnificent Formal Garden, sprawling sculpted lawns, stylish dining rooms, elaborate marble fireplaces, sophisticated wood-paneled library, and enormous central foyer with its grand staircase; including a state-of-the-art tent to seat 250. This exquisite must see property offers a diversity of options minutes from I-95 across the PA border!

The originally named, Woolton Hall castle was completed 1855 and occupied by several area turn-of-the-century visionaries as they purchased summer or suburban homes starting back in the mid 1800’s soon after the 1838 completion of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railway. The duPont Family owned the property from 1893 and made several modifications along the way to eventually become this notable Greek Revival mansion to resemble Montpelier. It was purchased by The State of Delaware in 1976 and became the showpiece of Bellevue State Park; now managed exclusively by Jeffrey Miller Catering.

    Amazing venue! 10/10

    Bellevue Hall was love at first sight for us. My fiance and I visited over 10 venues in DE and PA and without a doubt knew Bellevue was the one when we walked through it. The grounds are beautiful with a lush garden highlighting the perimeter of the ceremony sight, the inside of the mansion has an attention to detail that will blow you away, and the new tent they have built is lined in dreamy string lighting and provides an open-air experience for guests! We really loved it all. One of the biggest selling points for us was the ability to rent the mansion for the whole day and not have to travel from place to place. We wanted our wedding day to feel like an experience for the bridal party as well as for the guests and that is what Bellevue is giving us! We cannot wait to get married there in 2023 :)

    Exactly what we were looking for!

    We cannot say enough about how much we live this venue! It is beyond beautiful and the team is so helpful! They only do one wedding per day at Bellevue and you can rent the house for the whole day so you can get ready there, eliminating the need to go from place to place. The venue comes with an in-house catering company, Jeffrey A. Miller Catering, and they have a ton of options and you can customize the menu to fit your needs. It has been such an easy process and we are so grateful for all of the JAM team’s help!
