I literally cannot say enough good things about Pen Ryn. We picked the venue bc of the uniqueness of it, the views and the mansion itself. Elizabeth went over every little detail with us – and after coming back for a 2nd visit with my parents we signed the contract! The Thursday before the wedding we dropped everything off for our wedding– and Elizabeth ensured me everything would be set up perfect and look just how I wanted it! After our ceremony at our church – we headed to Pen Ryn for pictures. Everyone kept saying how amazing the mansion was and the view of the Delaware – and it really was!! The grass was cut perfectly, the flowers were amazing – everything was just amazing!! While we were taking pictures down at the river – Joe came out with some waters for me and my husband. Joe was our bridal server – and he was incredible!! After pics we came inside and Joe was waiting at the front door for us with our signature drinks and food!! My husband was so excited bc he was starving!! People told us they could barely eat their dinners bc the food at cocktail hour was so good they couldn’t stop eating. I highly recommend the mini burgers, bacon scallops & Asian station!!!! Joe brought us in the see the main ballroom before the reception started! It was breathtaking. The room was so perfect and looked better than I could have ever imagined! Linda was our matradee – and she was just as amazing! She was so friendly and a huge help! All of the servers were so polite and very attentive to their tables! The reception flew by – but we enjoyed every single second of it!! Our reception was until 10:30 but we stayed and danced until 10:50ish! As we were saying goodbye to guests all of the employees packed up all of our stuff. All of my totes of stuff were sitting at the front door packed and waiting for us – and the staff loaded everything into our cars! I really wish we could live that whole night over again - I would highly recommend having your wedding here!!!Sent on 09/17/2014

Best staff ever!
I cannot say enough good things about Pen Ryn and the people who worked there to help make my wedding day so beautiful and special! From the day we met Jenna at our tasting I knew we were in good hands! She went over every single detail with us and made sure everything we asked for was also written down on the contract. Ashley ended up taking over when Jenna went on maternity leave and she met all of the requests that we had discussed with Jenna perfectly. The two of them are so attentive and caring, they respond to emails within hours, and you can tell they really love what they do! It was so easy with them both! On the day of our wedding, my husband and I had the best bridal attendant James who made sure we had food, drink, and even brought a little sample of hors d’oeuvres up to our bridal suite where we decided to take a few minutes to ourselves right after our ceremony. The food was outstanding, we upgraded a few of the items at cocktail hour which I highly recommend. Luckily, without upgrading, you still get more options than any other venue we had visited. People are still raving about the food to us! Everyone loved the hibachi station, sushi station, and the mashed potato bar! The room was gorgeous as well, they redid Bell voir feb 2018 and the floors are just gorgeous. James, Jenna, Ashley and JP made this night beyond perfect with their service, the night went so smoothly that if I could recommend any venue at all I would 110% recommend Bell voir manor or Pen Ryn just because of the staff.Sent on 04/09/2019
