Beautiful Venue in Newtown PA

Marybeth, from the rafters, was super responsive, accommodating, helpful, and executed our wedding day flawlessly. The wedding space is a hidden gem in the middle of Newtown, PA. The space was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. I initial toured the venue via zoom and fell in love. If you are looking for a venue in Newtown, I highly recommend the Rafters!

Wedding of our dreams!

Rafters was the first and ONLY venue we looked at for our big day, and we instantly knew it was the perfect place.
Working with Mary Beth leading up to our wedding was such a pleasure and she made the process so easy and stress free.
Every detail was perfect, and I wish I could do it all again!
