Beautiful venue for a fall wedding
As soon as we went to view Glen Foerd, we knew it was perfect. The nature surrounding the mansion is picturesque for any wedding, and the Delaware River makes for a beautiful back drop. The inside of the mansion is GORGEOUS. We received SO many compliments on the venue and how absolutely beautiful it was. Our guests loved taking pictures as the sun set by the river, our outdoor ceremony by the fall trees, and the historic mansion itself. The reception tent is another stunner. The roof with the lights are beautiful, and the decor was perfect.
There is a noise restriction for the venue due to it being in a neighborhood, and our reception was over by 10pm. These were things initially I was worried about, but the music was loud enough and everyone was still dancing and having a great time the whole night. We definitely didnt need to end at 11 to have a good time because our guests were all WORN out, haha. I would definitely recommend this venue to future brides and grooms!

Grace and Glen Foerd was a magical wedding
I couldn’t recommend Glen Foerd more. It was a pleasure working with Grace and Jamie Hollendar. The food was amazing, the venue was magical and the service was perfect. Grace was readily available to help me with all my (many!) questions and concerns. She helped make decisions and keep me on track for the big day. The day of the wedding was so well planned, I did nothing but relax and really enjoy my friends family and new husband. I couldn’t ask for a better wedding day and I wish I could do it here every year. thank you, Glen Foerd for giving us our dream wedding!!!Sent on 11/12/2019

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!Sent on 10/30/2017

I absolutely love this beautiful venue! It's one of my favorite places to photograph and visit. The weddings here are gorgeous, with plenty of options to photograph both inside the house and outside on the grounds and along the Delaware.
Great caterer and staff make this amazing historic site the location for a wedding on the Delaware River. Everyone is so helpful and work together to create that magical day. As a florist, I find it a treat to work at such an amazing property. There is nothing like this mansion.
With the combination of a great space and catering by Jamie Hollander Gourmet Catering Kate Conoway and Phil deliver a top notch experience that is unsurpassed!
