The best full experience wedding venue

The Desmond was an AMAZING venue!!! We were so fortunate to have stumbled upon this location and the spaces inside. The conservatory space makes it look like you are somewhere far away from Malvern, PA and is perfect for photos. Every staff member was so warm and welcoming and truly helped curate a great environment. Kevin, our primary contact and planner, was fun and personable and made the process so easy! This venue includes flowers and wedding cake which takes out a lot of stress. It was a dream to have the ceremony, reception, and after party all in one spot with great food, great vibes, and a beautiful space. I would recommend The Desmond to anyone.

10 out of 10 Experience!

We hosted a 170-person wedding here, and the event couldn't have been better if we tried. From our first instance at the venue, the Catering Sales Manager, Karen, was attentive, knowledgeable, and personable! She walked us through every aspect of the event, and continued that support through the year of planning. The room block was perfect, the atmosphere was fun and inviting while maintaining a level of elegance, and the food was PERFECT. Prince, the Banquet Manager, was wonderful to work with about food and signature cocktails, and the entire staff were sweet and professional. Special shoutouts to Carol and Dottie for helping keep us fed and never without a drink. We would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a one-stop-shop of ease and class for their special day!
