    We LOVED having our ceremony and reception at the CCHS!! Cyndi was our coordinator, and she was so helpful with any questions we had. The venue is pretty and unique, and right in town- perfect for pictures. And the Hotel Warner is right across the street, so it's nice and convenient. We used the patio out front for cocktail hour, and it was beautiful. It's a pretty blank space so it works with any color scheme or theme you'd like to use, and a nice stage that you can use for your wedding band/DJ. I highly recommend the CCHS! I am so happy we had our wedding there.

    In the middle of July 2014, 3 months before our wedding, we decided to start looking for venues. Luckily, CCHS was available on the date of our wedding (barely!). I began emailing with Tara Thistlethwaite at CCSH, and now that the wedding is over, I don't want to stop! She was over-the-top helpful and enthusiastic about our reception. My husband and I had a unique theme for our reception (Halloween/Masquerade), and the theme was thoroughly embraced by the entire staff. The availability of the venue was fantastic (we had a few hours the day before the reception to set up, as well as basically the entire day of), which took a lot of stress off of us. The cost to rent the venue was quite low, considering our guests were able to walk through the museum for a couple of hours during the reception! Just an all-around unique venue that will keep your guests talking for days and weeks afterwards.

    We loved our wedding reception experience with the Chester County Historical Society! Growing up in the town of West Chester I knew I wanted to have my reception right in town and we could not have asked for a better experience. Tara from the Historical Society did a great job helping us plan-she is really quick and attentive to emails and phone calls. My favorite part of having our reception here was that the museum was open for a few hours-our guests got to explore and dress up etc.
