Greystone has been hosting weddings for more than two decades. Its history started in 1907 when the estate was built for Philip M. Sharples, a dairy farmer, inventor, and manufacturer. The mansion was designed by Philadelphia architect Charles Barton Keen. Sharples and his family lived at the estate until 1935. After Greystone foreclosed during the Great Depression, the Sharples' moved to California. In 1942, Aram K. Jerrehian bought Greystone and the estate, where several generations of Jerrehian generations have, and currently, live. Greystone Hall was opened for rentals in 1990; our first wedding was in 1991, since then we have been celebrating anniversaries of our new families - inviting couples back every five years.

Dream wedding venue
There is so much to say...Greystone is a must-see/must-consider venue! It is absolutely STUNNING! The building has so much character. It is vintage, classy and elegant. The landscaping is amazing. The ability to have your ceremony and reception in the same location is ideal. We held a Christian ceremony and felt that the intimacy and meaningfulness of our ceremony in Greystone's garden was wonderful.
Elizabeth is the owner and will also serve as your "day-of" coordinator. She is fabulous. I thank her for her patience, execution, and knowledge. The staff is excellent and they will make your wedding perfect.
Finally, Greystone has an "approved list" of vendors that they exclusively work with. This list is the MOST HELPFUL thing ever! Every vendor on that list is top-notch professional, reliable, and a master of their craft. You can't make a bad choice with any of Greystone's approved vendors. Having "fewer options" actually makes your job as a bride much easier, and every one of our vendors turned out phenomenal.
I urge you to check out Greystone and trust me when I say it is a one-of-a-kind venue! We had the best wedding day!!!Sent on 06/06/2019

I want to write this while the memory of all that Elizabeth and her staff did for me on our wedding day was still fresh in my mind. My husband and I were married at Greystone, on July 22, 2017. The weather was beautiful up until 5:30 p.m. when I was getting ready to walk down the aisle. The clouds started to become heavy and dark, chairs from the reception area were promptly moved inside. Around 5:45 p.m. the sky opened up and poured down with side swept winds and they told me I won the award for the heaviest downpour ever on a wedding day! Not sure I wanted to receive such an award, but determined not to let it rain on my parade, I walked down the aisle in the great hall to meet my husband. During the ceremony the staff wiped down all the tables, squeegied the dance floor and the carpeting. ( All were completely dry once we started the reception.) Once the ceremony ended, we were blessed with an open blue sky and less humidity. We enjoyed our cocktail hour with our guests outside and they were able to fully appreciate the beauty that is Greystone. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Elizabeth and the staff at Greystone were to my husband and me. I did not worry about one thing the entire day. Truly it was like the home was ours and we just enjoyed every moment from start to finish. All of my guests were in awe of this hidden and tucked away gem of Chester County. I looked at eight other venues and the minute I walked into Greystone Hall, I had that Ah-hah moment. So to all who are considering a venue, visit Greystone Hall and find your Ah-hah moment.Sent on 07/24/2017
Very polite and very easy to work with. Beautiful location and well organized. Would recommend to all! It was a pleasure to work with you!
Always a pleasure to work with the staff at Greystone Hall! Our vintage cars seem to blend perfectly with the character and style of this beautiful complex!
Greystone Hall is a beautiful place for any event, weddings especially! Mid Atlantic Limousines highly recommends them for their unique venue, professional staff, and excellent service.
