Beautiful, Responsive, and Accomodating!
We had our wedding reception at the Drexelbrook and there are so many wonderful things we can say about it!
Let’s start with the venue itself: gorgeous! The pictures we found online didn’t do it justice. It’s a beautiful, clean, and tastefully ornate facility. And it’s huge! During COVID, they were able to accommodate all of our guests (~200) comfortably and still follow state guidelines. The complimentary uplighting and table settings created a lovely ambience, and the layout was perfect. We had a live band who had plenty of space to work and the dance floor had ample space.
Next, the food: delicious! Honestly, wedding food has no business being this good. The flavors were amazing, from the hors d'oeuvres and stations to the main courses (they even were able to accommodate a custom sea bass dish we requested!) to the desserts. We’re still dreaming about the stuffed chicken and strip steak. There are so many options and they were very accommodating with food allergies, preferences, and intolerances. It’s hard to go wrong with all the choices. Also, the staff went out of their way to ensure that we were adequately fed and had time to ourselves! We can’t begin to tell you how clutch that was.
Then, the staff: helpful and accommodating! We had exactly 3 WEEKS to replan our reception as COVID forced the original reception out of Philadelphia, and everyone at the Drexelbrook did their best to make sure our “special day” was truly special. Christina, Anthony, Jeannie, and Bill hit the ground running and facilitated all of our last-minute needs. They responded quickly to our questions and didn’t balk at any reasonable requests. They had so many recommendations we didn’t even think of! They also worked so well with our vendors, making this as stress-free as possible!
Lastly, the quick turnaround: wow! While Pennsylvania was easing many event restrictions in March of 2021, Philadelphia did not follow suit. Our original reception venue very graciously allowed us out of the commitment to their venue, so we had a few days to find something else. After being very impressed with a tour of the facility, we landed on the Drexelbrook and they got to work immediately. Months of planning was able to be condensed in a few weeks. Our guests universally loved the venue and were shocked that all of it could be done in such a short period of time!
10/10 would recommend it for any event!Sent on 05/02/2021

Amazing! Call kim if you want a beautiful wedding!
If you are looking for a beautiful, inclusive, and just down right spectacular wedding venue then look no further! Also if you want a professional team that makes all of your wedding dreams come true then just click on the link and call Kim. My husband and I had to choose a different venue 2-3 months before our wedding because of the COVID restrictions in Philadelphia at our original venue. And then when we had to push our date back because of COVID, Kim immediately came to the rescue to provide us with alternative dates. She always made herself available to us when something with another vendor (particularly our original florist) went wrong. We had our original florist (NOT through DREXELBROOK) ghost us 2 weeks before our new wedding date and Kim immediately got us in contact with their professional list of florists and we had a consultation and all of our stresses gone within a business day. Kim and the team at Drexelbrook truly made our wedding day the PERFECT day despite covid and the wedding planning hiccups. Our guests absolutely LOVED the food and the beautiful ballroom. All of the staff were professional and even made sure we ate during our big day. If you are looking for a beautiful ballroom and a professional and attentive staff during your wedding day, do yourself a favor and call KIM!!!Sent on 03/14/2021

Kim & Everyone at Drexelbrook are just AMAZING!Sent on 10/04/2020
Kim made the planning process so much easier! She is great at communicating with her brides and she made the evening run smoothly!
The food was to die for! Everyone kept saying how tasty their meals were! The wait staff, bartenders, and helpers were very professional. One of the women working even noticed my water glass was low, as I’m greeting guests at each and every table, and she refilled it for me! I mean how much more service can you get!
They helped make sure my husband had is jacket on for the cake cutting, made sure that we actually got to eat our meals, and constantly made sure we had a drink!
Overall, I was so thrilled with our wedding and everyone there made it perfect! Thank you so much to Kim and the Drexelbrook team!
