    A Seriously Underrated, Flexible, Hidden Gem of a Venue

    This was the best venue for a COVID wedding and in general because it's SO flexible. Our original plan was an indoor wedding, but because of COVID, we moved it outside without a problem. You can rent a part of the Soda House for cheaper or you can rent the entire building. There are three rooms, one of which is a large auditorium which is wonderful for acoustics. You can have as little people as you want, which worked for us because other venues had minimums. This venue is a canvas where you can have your dream wedding and the estate is gorgeous. Driving into the venue was always a treat since it was so lush and green on the way. You can also rent their shuttle for a small fee so you can take pictures all around their very large grounds. Even though it's a museum, the venue is also secluded and you will not have anyone intrude your party. The cherry on top is the venue coordinator, Alisha, who is so sweet and responsive. The venue is historic and has some rules like no open flames indoors, but she will accommodate as much as she can. The staff is very COVID conscious and they take safety seriously, so we felt we were in good hands. If that didn't convince you, the museum is involved in the community and it's nice knowing that we helped contribute to a well-meaning non-profit (Though the event space itself doesn't feel like a museum, which was also important to us). We are endlessly grateful to the staff and this hidden gem!

    Professional service, beautiful venue

    We recently had a smaller wedding (72 guests) at Hagley with the ceremony and reception on-site at the Soda House. The day was perfect from start to finish! I worked closely with Alisha, the events manager, and couldn’t have done it without her and the on-site manager, Bob. The venue/building is beautiful for a wedding less than 100 guests with a great price point. I would absolutely recommend Hagley for your wedding!! Service and location is terrific!

Special Events Manager

Hey Everyone! I'm Alisha, the Special Events Manager at Hagley Museum & Library. I have been managing the weddings and events at Hagley for the past two years, but I have been with the organization since 2015 in many other capacities. I love showing off the beautiful property to perspective couples and helping to make their wedding dreams become reality. My favorite part of working the weddings is seeing the unique and intimate details that each couple brings to their celebration to tell their story.

In my spare time, I love hanging out with my pets, board games and crafting! Music is my everything; you can usually find me anywhere there is live music. I'm also a big Philadelphia Eagles fan and try to get to as many games as I can.

I really enjoy taking the time to get to know all of the Hagley Weddings couples, from answering the initial inquiry, to the first site visit, all the way up to the big day. Feel free to reach out if you are interested in hosting your wedding here at Hagley!

    We love the charm at Hagley Museum. They have a Romantic feel to their venue that is timeless and beautiful. Photographers love Hagley

  • Dave Breisacher Photography Wedding Photographers

    Having photographed a few weddings at the Hagley Museum now, I can say their staff and venue are first class. The setting and grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the options as a photographer are seemingly endless. The grounds are so large they have a guide to help you around the grounds. The staff at the ceremony and reception sites really are terrific as well. There's great communication from the start, and they make sure we know about everything that's planned for that day.
