    Our daughter was recently married at Glen Foerd on the Delaware and we couldn't have had a more perfect day! The stately mansion was a perfect backdrop for a breathtaking ceremony with stunning view of the water. Leslie and her team flawlessly executed every detail. She is a complete joy to work with and I was able to enjoy every moment of the day knowing that she had everything perfectly under control. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the reception in the tent was stunningly beautiful. Tarrah had the wedding of her dreams thanks to Leslie and Glen Foerd!
