About

On WeddingWire since 2013

Glen Foerd on the Delaware is a historic riverfront wedding venue located 20 minutes from downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With a sweeping waterfront view and 18 acres of park-like landscapes and woods, this property is truly beautiful. It's so close to Philadelphia but feels a world away!

Facilities and Capacity

Glen Foerd on the Delaware can accommodate up to 300 guests. The historic mansion is yours for the day! Clients have wonderful choices, including both outdoor and indoor spaces along the riverfront, boathouse and manicured lawns. There are endless opportunities for unqiue photo settings! The views of the sparkling Delaware River are spectacular and make for lovely backdrops, as do the mansion's porches and gorgeous indoor rooms. Up the grand staircase, there's an art museum on the second floor, just down the hall from the sunlit Bridal Suite (with its own bathroom). The groom and his groomsmen can get ready in the basement Rathskellar, fashioned after a German beer hall. Guests can enjoy cocktails on the stone terrace just outside the mansion, wander the riverfront paths and visit the boathouse. The customizable Riverside Pavilion includes a dance floor and built-in bar area, a beautifully draped ceiling and the ability to decorate to suit your vision. A huge covered porch area faces the river and allows for fire pits with s'mores - a popular choice!

    Incredible full-service venue

    We absolutely loved our experience at Glen Foerd! Grace and her whole team were incredibly easy to work with and supportive. We felt so taken care of by Grace every step of the way. The venue is so beautiful right on the river and the inside mansion space is also gorgeous. The bridal suite is well-lit and perfect for getting ready photos! All of the guests loved the appetizers and dinner. An extra perk about this venue is that you can provide your own alcohol. We went with the distributor Grace recommended and this was convenient and affordable.

    Gorgeous venue, delicious food, very helpful coordinators

    We had the most perfect wedding at Glen Foerd! Book your wedding here ASAP! The venue is stunning, and the food was delicious. Our guests still rave about how good different food items were, with each having a different favorite. The Jamie Hollander team were so helpful every step of the way. I worked with a few members of their team throughout the process (Grace, Leslie, and Kate). Grace always prompted responded to my many questions via email. She gave input on some style choices and was helpful in recommending vendors. She was always friendly and had a calming presence. Kate was our month of coordinator and wow was she organized.
    She helped coordinate our alcohol order so we didn鈥檛 have to think. Day of the wedding, Kate seemed to be in 10 places at once. She was helpful in every way imaginable, from making sure I had water and lipstick to undoing the buttons on my dress for the dress change. She seamlessly helped me rearrange the order of the reception when I realized I needed to change out of my dress to eat. My family and friends still comment on how helpful she was throughout the day. Thank you to the JH team for making our day so special!
