    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.
