Greystone has been hosting weddings for more than two decades. Its history started in 1907 when the estate was built for Philip M. Sharples, an 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 and about half of the property was sold. In 1942, Aram K. Jerrehian bought Greystone and the rest of the estate, where several Jerrehian generations lived.
The wedding venue is 40 minutes from Philadelphia, 45 minutes from Reading and 55 minutes from Greystone Hall. It is 35 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport and 55 minutes from Trenton, New Jersey.

We had the privilege of getting married at Greystone Hall 11 years ago. We had everything we wished for at a beautiful, historical venue with a wonderful staff and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to have memorable wedding day. Our guests still comment today on what a unique and elegant place where our wedding was held.Sent on 12/27/2017

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

This weekend marked one year since my husband Brian and I got married and had our reception at greystone! I felt the need to post again a year later because reminiscing on this day still blows our minds. 5 stars isn't even enough. Elizabeth and her team were INCREDIBLE. Our wedding day was everything I envisioned and more. Every little detail or accent I wanted added was taken care of flawlessly. I wish I could go back and re-live this day exactly as it was! Thank you Elizabeth and greystone hall for making the very best day so special, so memorable and beyond amazing!Sent on 09/26/2017

This is the third season of the emotional drama "The Manor". A story so sorid it got its own name. This true story began at Greystone Manor in LA and tells of a scandel of sex, lies and murder in the early 20's surrounding the Tea Pot Dome Scandel.
Players, under the direction of Samantha Barrett, from the distinguished Colonial Playhouse in Aldan, PA, along with the viewers move through the mansion's first floor. The mansion is the stage and each room is a different act.
The intimacy you feel as an audience member is very strong. Emotions run high and you can feel the hair on your arms stand up.
Managing Partner and partial owner Velda Jerrehian Moog provides artictectuarl house tour. House dressed for the holidays with light refreshments and good cheer for all!
Sponsored by the Chester County Night School
For info and tickets:

In the tradition of the Biltmore Estate, the DuPont mansions, and the grand houses of Newpot, RI, Greystone Hall stands today as a living monument to the era of great mansion building in America from the Gilded Ageoto the 1920's. Now over a hundred years old, the house was designed by architect Charles Barton Keen for West Chester inventor, industrialist and philanthropist, P.M Sharples. It has been owned by the Jerrehian family for over seventy-five years. Decorated for the holidays, the mansion will be dressed up as well to ring in the New Year. The mansion is still a family home and not open to the general public. Transportation is on your own.
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.
