In 1983, more than 100 years and many owners later, Richard Allman bought 12 acres of the property. He is the current owner of Joseph Ambler Inn.

Tacos and blow torches
Joseph Ambler Inn was the best place to get married. Every square inch of the property is gorgeous. I loved that everything was right on the property for us. I worked with Ali the entire planning process and she is such a sweetheart! She made the entire planning process so simple. We even discussed taco's a few times and enjoyed Taco Tuesday's during the summer. I also found out after the wedding, that my candles melted into squares but my vases were cylinders. Ali sat in the middle of the dance floor, blow torching the candles!!! I was completely blown away. I can't say anymore nice things about Ali. Multiple guests asked if I'd be upset if they choose to get married at JAI and I can't blame them! I sent them Ali's info. This was the best venue I could have hoped and picked for for our wedding.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Joseph Ambler Inn and we were also able to rent out about 15 rooms in one house for our wedding party and closest friends. We loved that this venue allowed for everything to happen in one place, so we did not have to travel anywhere once we (and our guests) got the venue. In addition the venue takes care of many of the planning details for you such as linens, tables/chairs, table numbers, catering, alcohol, set up and break down of the decorations, the cake, etc. The venue and all the spaces are also amazing, they have beautiful grounds for an outdoor wedding, a pavilion that can be a plan b for rain or a space for the cocktail hour, and the reception hall is spacious and elegant. The wedding planning staff are absolutely fantastic as well; they are friendly, knowledgeable, organized, and flexible! We worked with Ali and Tay throughout the planning process and Meg was our day of coordinator. After I left each meeting with these ladies I felt more calm and knew that we were in good hands. On our wedding day they went above and beyond to make the day stress free and even better than I imagined! They exceeded my expectations from planning to execution the day of, and as far as I know the day went off without a hitch. Not only was the place beautiful, but the food is also amazing and our guests complimented the appetizers and main courses several times. JAI was a huge part of making our day truly the best day ever!
Beautiful and charming buildings and grounds. We love photographing weddings here!
Every time we are asked to create flowers for an event at JAI -we jump at the chance. The incredibly lovely venue, coupled with the extraordinary staff members-make it one of our very favorite "field trips". Every season shines on their beautiful "oasis" in the middle of Montgomeryville- you're close to everything but feel as though you have taken a step back in time- to a place where the simple pleasures can be savored and enjoyed. We at An Enchanted Florist at Skippack Village highly endorse the Joseph Ambler Inn as one of the premier venues in our area and look forward to our next wedding there :) Jill and the entire Enchanted Team in Skippack
