About Duportail House

The Duportail House is a historic farmhouse that doubles as a wedding venue for couples in and around Wayne, Pennsylvania, and beyond. This property, which sits on the outskirts of Valley Forge National Historical Park, features three landscaped acres for couples dreaming of a naturalistic celebration. Moments away from the Schuylkill River and at the footsteps of a stunning national park, this building provides the ideal backdrop for private festivities. Here, couples and their guests are welcome to rejoice in unison as two families come together and become one.

Couples can invite up to 160 guests to their wedding event or celebration at the Duportail House. They will find access to the first two floors of the farmhouse as well as the surrounding grounds. The first floor of the house features grand antique rooms for couples to transform and decorate into the dream setting they’ve always envisioned. They can enjoy the 18th-century ambiance of thick stone walls, wooden floors, original moldings and fireplaces, and an inviting front porch. There is also a tented patio that couples can make use of in the warmer months and heat in the cooler months. On the second floor of the house, the wedding suite and bath offers a private space for couples to get ready and relax before the big moment arrives. There is also a beautiful outdoor barn for couples to use for hosting a ceremony or a cocktail hour if they desire. The Federal Barn is a weathered wood and stone structure that adds charm and history to a couple’s special day.

    Beautiful Venue and Excellent Service

    Duportail House was a beautiful venue for our outdoor wedding, with several options onsite for where to hold the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and the reception. We opted for the ceremony on the front lawn, cocktail hour in the barn, and the reception in the back yard (note: dance floor must be inside the house if you have a band/DJ setup; first dance and family dance can be outside). Duportail provides a unique feel, and is such a beautiful venue that minimal decorations are needed - we had lantern centerpieces and a eucalyptus garland arch, but we did not need any decorations for inside the barn or the inside the house.

    The absolute best part of having Duportail House as our venue, though, was having Kate as the venue contact and coordinator. She is really easy to work with, very responsive, and has an excellent list of preferred vendors, though she is flexible if you have your own vendors as well (we used B&T catering from her list but had our own florist and cake baker). Kate was present for the wedding itself and worked well with our vendors as they came onsite, setup, and cleaned up afterwards.

    The only note we have is that parking is a little limited, so we decided to work with the hotel shuttle service as well to ensure the venue grounds were not too crowded.

    My husband and I got married at the Duportail House on June 26th, 2018. We were married in the barn, had Hors d'Oeuvres on the patio, and dinner in the two dining rooms. Let me start by saying that it was an amazing venue for a wedding, and Kate (who is the events coordinator) was awesome to work with. Kate made sure that everything was set before the wedding, and the day of the wedding, she was there to help everything run smoothly!

    We were going for a rustic theme, so the barn was perfect for us! For a while, we weren't too sure if we wanted to use the barn though, because with the wedding being in June, we were afraid that it would be too hot (there is no A/C in the barn). We ended up watching the weather the week before and seeing that it was going to be hot but not too hot, so we decided that we would be fine in the barn, and we were! The barn has a concrete floor and partial stone walls, which keeps it a bit cooler. My guests kept saying how beautiful and just downright awesome the barn was!

    After the ceremony, our guests went to the patio for Hors d'Oeuvres and we also had a photo booth there (side note: the photo booth was a huge hit!) to keep guests entertained while my husband and I took photos. After we were done with the photos, we came inside and by that time, the guests had found their tables in the 2 dining rooms. We had a nice buffet style dinner (the food was in the breezeway of the house, you will know what I am talking about if you see the house!). We had about 63 guests, and everyone fit comfortably in the two rooms, and there was still room for people to move around.

    Overall, it is an absolutely beautiful venue! The barn is beautiful, the house is beautiful, and the grounds are beautiful! I would highly recommend this venue!
