    Classic and elegant place for wedding ceremony & reception

    Merion Tribute House is a gorgeous place to hold classic and elegant wedding ceremony and reception. Our ceremony was out-door in front of Merion Tribute House on second weekend of April. Weather was very nice, perfect warm spring temperature, sunny, fairly green nature in background, hints of yellow flowers here and there, and pink flower trees nearby.

    Reception was hold in-door, inside the ballroom which has capacity of around 150 people at max. Intricate interior designs of Merion Tribute House provided guests to look around and enjoyed the views and us to take many great photos inside. They have nice fire place only used over winter. On the hallway, there is second floor balcony where you can toss bouquet.

    It was very pleasant to have ceremony and reception at Merion Tribute House. The place has bridal and groom suite individually, where you can have getting ready photos. They give you earlier access to the venue if you want to have first look before the wedding. The place has plenty of open free parking spots for guests, large kitchen area for catering.

    People working there, especially Colette and Terri, are very very friendly, kind, and highly professional. They gave many suggestions on where to start planning for wedding, which vendors they have worked with, and what would be good timeline for us. Thanks to them, we were very happy and satisfied with our wedding.

    One visit to Merion Tribute House and we were sure this was the place. In addition to the picturesque architecture and landscaping, the flow of the space really spoke to us. On the day of the event, our 150 guests flowed around the fairly open floor plan, exploring the front garden, the fireplace room, the grand hall, and the ballroom. Somehow, it feels grand and cozy at the same time. As a practical matter, it was important that MTH works with a number of approved caterers, giving us plenty of options within our budget, and allowing us to buy our own alcohol. For us, that meant that while the venue rental cost was slightly higher than most other venues we saw, the ability to control our catering and bar budget made it overall much more affordable. The rental also comes with chairs, and several other items they’ve accumulated or inherited from weddings over the years, such as an arc, easels, and birdcage for cards.

    And, oh yeah, did I mention the architecture and landscaping is gorgeous? We stayed on-site for our first look and pictures. These pictures will be on our mantels and walls for a lifetime, and hopefully other walls and mantels for generations. Suffice it to say, the grounds certainly rose to the occasion.

    Special thanks to Collette, who helped us from our first tour to the last dance and made it all very easy.
