The Moorestown Ballroom is a historic mansion with a ballroom in the Southern New Jersey area where couples can host their weddings. This classic 1920s English-style home has plenty of vintage features to catch a couple’s eye. Using the brick exterior as a backdrop or celebrating inside a room with high ceilings and wooden accents, couples will find themselves whisked away to the past for their romantic wedding day. This venue is located just 25 minutes across the Delaware River from downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Facilities and Capacity
This venue welcomes as many as 200 guests to a couple’s wedding. At the Moorestown Ballroom, couples can begin their wedding events with a timeless ceremony on the venue’s lawn. Couples can choose to have the mansion’s exterior facade at either end of their aisle. Facing the venue, the red brick and gray shingles make a charming backdrop for the ceremony and many of the photographs that will be taken of it. At the other end of the aisle, couples can begin in the stunning mansion and use it for their grand entrance to the ceremony. In this arrangement, other charming houses in the town, mostly obscured by thick tree foliage, make the backdrop for the wedding day. This mansion venue also boasts a brick patio and a garden area bursting with blooms on the exterior. This makes an idyllic area for cocktails before the main reception, giving couples time to take a substantial amount of wedding photographs. Everyone can then come together in the ballroom of this venue. The Moorestown Ballroom features extra high ceilings with wooden accents running across in a pattern of squares and smaller squares. From these spaces hang vintage chandeliers and recessed lights add additional luminescence. At one end of the ballroom couples will find a large wooden stage built into the wall, perfect for bands or a DJ. Smaller rooms at this ballroom venue offer private locations for more intimate receptions, ceremonies or other wedding events: such as bridal showers.
Prior to the engaging events of their wedding day, couples can take time to relax in the venue’s personal bridal suites. This relaxation comes courtesy of event planning assistance from the venue’s staff, along with other much needed services such as setup. The Moorestown Ballroom offers event items and rentals for a couple’s wedding day, with items including but not limited to chairs, a dance floor, furniture, and tables for couples to use. Couples can guarantee that their vendor knows the mansion well and is vetted, as only recommended and preferred vendors may cater to couples on their wedding day at the Moorestown Ballroom. Wireless Internet and onsite parking make this venue a dream for the guests in attendance as well.
In 1923, Eldridge Reeves Johnson donated a large sum of money to build a community center in Moorestown, New Jersey. Johnson, who founded the Victor Talking Machine Company in 1901, agreed to build the community center after being approached by a member of the Moorestown Woman’s Club. The facility was built in a combination of English and Colonial styles to keep upkeep costs low. These two styles used many brick and stone, instead of more traditional wooden, elements. Since its conception and completion, the house has undergone many renovations and refurbishments.

My husband and I had a wedding at the Moorestown Community House in August of 2018. The ambiance of the venue is so special that from the minute I walked in, I knew that was the place I wanted to have my wedding. Joan helped make everything so easy for us. She was always available for questions and helped us connect with caterers, recommended florists and helped run our rehearsal. She was also our Maitre D' the day of our wedding and she worked closely with our wedding band to ensure that our ceremony and our reception introductions ran flawlessly. The building is well maintained and is just an overall beautiful place to get married. The bridal suite is an added bonus, our hair and makeup artists were thrilled with the set up! Our day was absolutely perfect and I cannot thank Joan enough for her help in that process!Sent on 09/26/2018

Beautiful. Classic. Timeless.
My fiance and I fell in love with the MCH the first time we went and saw it. Joan was super easy to work with and helped us by providing a bunch of local vendors for the area. We were having a military wedding and wanted something classic and timeless for our venue. The space was perfect! The ballroom held up to 180 people with a dance floor and had a set back stage. This was ideal for us because we hired a band for our music/entertainment. The kitchen was fully functional so our caterer was able to cook all of the food in house, so it was warm and fresh when we were served! There were 3 separate bars throughout the facility so your guests never needed to wait for a drink. The different rooms allowed for your guests to adventure throughout the hallways and find new spaces before the ballroom was opened up. Our personal favorite touch was the big TV above the front bar. We attached a laptop to it with an HDMI cord and played a football game during cocktail hour. Our guests only had great things to say. Several women even commented on how pretty the ladies bathroom is!! We had such a beautiful day!!
