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!

The easiest part of planning a wedding in 2020
We fell in love with Glen Foerd on the rainiest of days in the dead of winter and were so excited for a summer wedding in August of 2020. Like so many couples this year we opted to postpone to 2021. Grace and Leslie were absolutely wonderful during this process and beyond understanding and patient. While we are still planning for a larger celebration at Glen Foerd next year we decided to have a small outdoor ceremony and cocktail reception in September. Leslie made the entire day run so smoothly! Because of Covid we hadn't had a chance to have our tasting yet and were thrilled with the food. Multiple guests raved about the food, service and the beauty of the venue and said they can't wait to come back for our wedding reception next year. The Jamie Hollander staff was extremely professional and took all Covid-19 precautions seriously while still providing fantastic service at the food stations and bar. All of our guests wore masks when they weren't eating, drinking or taking photos and there was plenty of space on the terrace and lawn for social distancing. After so many ups and downs of wedding planning during a pandemic we couldn't be happier with how the day went and can't wait to celebrate at Glen Foerd again!Sent on 10/02/2020

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.Sent on 10/15/2020
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!Sent on 10/24/2020
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!
