I am SO impressed with the Cairnwood Estate. It is absolutely the most magical, elegant and picturesque place to get married in the Philadelphia area, hands down. Melissa at the Cairnwood was a dream to work with and I cannot say enough good things about them. They weren't fussy with us and we were absolutely treated with the utmost respect and care. Our wedding had 200 attendants and had an international crown from all over the US, Europe, Canada and Australia, and they were all blown away by how beautiful and fun our wedding was. Thank you so much to Melissa and everyone at the Cairnwood for making our wedding magical!

The employees at Cairnwood are so accommodating and helpful. They took my fiancé and I around on our first tour and were very informative and then allowed us to come back again and tour it ourselves. The grounds are beautiful and we can’t wait to have our wedding here!

My wedding at Cairnwood was magical. It was absolutely perfection and much of that had to do with the staff at Cairnwood. Krissy was easy to work with and super helpful and friendly throughout the process. The house manager Laird was equally helpful and made the entire day run smoothly. He checked in periodically to make sure everything was running smoothly, and it always was! We absolutely loved that we are the only wedding or event at Cairnwood that day and that we have the run of the venue. Our guests have been raving about reception and how they were not "stuck" in one ballroom for the entire night. Our wedding truly felt like a fancy party or gala. Our guests were all over the house having a wonderful time chatting, dancing, eating and having a merry time. No one left early because everyone was comfortable! Cairnwood allowed us to create little nook and niches for people to chat and party. As bride and groom it was even easy for us to be able to visit with our guests while partying at the same time! I love how Cairnwood let us bring in our own decorations - we put pictures of us all over the house including on mantles, bookshelves, tables etc. It allowed a personal intimate feeling to the space. I cannot recommend Cairnwood enough! We also LOVED our caterer Karen Spire whom Cairnwood recommended. More glowing reviews on her on her own page!! Thank you to Cairnwood for a perfect, magical, romantic and FUN evening!
Cairnwood is a truly magical venue in every aspect!
