About Glen Foerd on the Delaware

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!

    Incredibly accommodating, kind, organized and clearly experienced

    Glen Foerd's staff went above and beyond for our wedding this fall. After COVID completely turned our plans upside down, the staff at Glen Foerd ensured that we were able to still have an incredibly special day and made major accommodations for us that showed they truly cared. No words can fully describe how wonderful the entire team at Jamie Hollander/Glen Foerd is but I can confidently say that I want every single person I care about to get married there and have the experience we had.

    We had the pleasure of working with Leslie Cervenka on our minimony, who is the absolute best. She responded to every email quickly and with detailed and calming responses. It was so clear she cared about us and wanted us to have the most perfect day. On wedding day, everyone was cued perfectly (even though we never had a rehearsal) and she ensured all the details were taken care of. If you want a wedding day that is gorgeous, well-staffed, and stress-free, you must go with Glen Foerd and Leslie (or her team). :)

    The easiest part of 2020 wedding planning!

    My husband and I got married at Glen Foerd on 10/17/20. While this was our original date, our plans shifted to postpone our big event to next year and have a micro wedding with 20 guests this year. Grace and Leslie from Jamie Hollander were both so incredibly understanding and helpful through the whole process. They let us select a plan B date early in the pandemic, and were extremely responsive to all of my questions and concerns about planning during COVID even for 20 guests. The day went perfectly, all of the staff was lovely and the food was delicious. Leslie and the staff set up and took down all of our personal decor which made it so easy for our friends and family to relax. Not to mention, the venue itself is insanely beautiful. We got married along the river, but they have a number of ceremony options and a beautiful indoor space if it’s raining. Overall, I have no complaints and this was the easiest part of an extremely difficult year to be getting married. We are even more excited for next year and have no worries because we know everything is going to be amazing then too!
