Curtis Arboretum is a historic wedding venue located in Wyncote, Pennsylvania. Offering elegant interiors with room to host a lavish celebration, as well as landscaped grounds, this has everything the happy couple could wish for and more.
Facilities and Capacity
Undoubtedly, what makes Curtis Arboretum such a distinctive setting to host a wedding celebration are the many varieties of trees that populate the surrounding grounds. Because so many trees are dotted around the property, a secluded setting is created, allowing the wedding party to celebrate the couple’s official union in private. Creating a wall of greenery and leaves around certain parts, a little corner of natural heaven is created for the wedding party to enjoy themselves in peace.
Featuring 45 acres of land, all of it planted with an amazing variety of 50 different types of trees, there is also room for a couple of serene ponds, undulating hills, and more.
All of this creates a naturally inspired atmosphere that is ideal for hosting wedding celebrations of all sizes and scopes. Underneath a partially covered outdoor area, complete with beautiful pillars, you can have your romantic and elegantly crafted ceremony. Here, seated comfortably, everyone can record the moment on their phones to share on social media later on. For the reception, the happy couple can invite up to 200 guests to join in the party atmosphere at Curtis Hall.
Inside the hall, an ornate ceiling provides a splendid statement to announce the luxury and opulence of the venue. Having been transformed by renovations, the hall serves as a glamorous place for everyone to enjoy the wedding-day meal. Later on, as the night progresses, the newlyweds can take to the ballroom dance floor to enjoy the all-important couple’s dance.
A large tented patio completes the event spaces on offer, providing yet more room for everyone to savor a champagne toast or perhaps some flavorsome cocktails.
As well as the extravagant event spaces available, Curtis Arboretum also offers rooms for the couple and their wedding party to get ready for the big day. For the couple of honor arriving by their chosen mode of transport, parking is available - a convenience that the guests can also make use of. Cleanup, setup, event planning, and catering services are all available to add to the venue’s suitability for weddings. Event rentals, cake, and WiFi can also be offered.
Part of the Cyrus Curtis Estate, the Curtis Arboretum’s hall was originally built back in 1893. Although it has been renovated since to complement its original decor and design with modern touches, much of the originality is still present.

The best day!
JAM was over the top AMAZING!! We had an issue with our venue about 7 months prior to our wedding & they took care of everything for us. Everyone raved about the food & the Venue was indescribable. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and our wedding day was absolutely perfect. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! A big thank you to Laura Shoup!Sent on 02/22/2021

Curtis is a hidden gem!
My fiance and I are thrilled to be getting married at Curtis Arboretum. It has everything we are looking for. The arboretum and the grounds are stunning. The venue has recently undergone a huge makeover, with beautiful landscaping, a massive tall tent attached to the hall that can hold up to 200 guests, a new floor and murals in the hall, and large separate areas in the basement for the bridal party. I often joke that Curtis is a hidden gem!Sent on 02/22/2021
We have been working with Laura Shoup, the salesperson and planner for the venue, who has been amazing. We could not speak highly enough of her. She has done multiple walk-throughs of the venue with us and our families, put us in touch with many vendors, and is super responsive and knowledgeable. She has taken a lot of the stress out of this process. We still have 9 months prior to our wedding day, but we couldn't be more excited to get married at this venue.
