Rockwood Carriage House is a garden wedding venue located in Wilmington, Delaware. Tucked away on the secluded grounds of a historic 19th-century estate, the beautifully refurbished 150-year-old building is set on a 162-acre park just north of the city. Its stunning location belies its proximity to I-95 and numerous hotels for out-of-town guests. With expert wedding planners and creative cuisine by Prime Hospitality Catering, the facility offers a full range of outdoor settings among massive trees, walled gardens and verdant open areas, as we'll as indoor ceremony spaces highlighted with gorgeous stone walls and rustic wooden beams.

Perfect Venue!!

The Carriage House at Rockwood Park was the perfect venue for our special day!! Brandywine Prime catered, they're partners so it was all inclusive. They took care of EVERYTHING. Everyone was pleasant to work with, and very professional. I would highly recommend anyone looking for convenience to book this beautiful venue. You shouldn't have to lift a finger on your special day, Katie & Michael made sure our experience was top notch. We can't thank them enough!!

Beautiful Location

We hosted our wedding recently at the Rockwood Carriage house and it was a wonderful experience. The ceremony location is absolutely beautiful. They have a beautiful Garden outdoors that is perfect for taking pictures as well as other nice picture worthy locations.

The best venue and staff!

I simply cannot thank Patti, Margaret and Michelle enough for everything they did to make the day perfect. Margaret is beyond efficient on the administrative end and Michelle is an absolute rock star of a planner and event host. She has the perfect balance of presence vs. behind the scenes and will keep your guests comfortable and informed, while also keeping you and your bridal party well attended and free of stress. As someone with a planner personality myself, I was completely at ease handing her the controls.

Both the planning and event went seamlessly and the staff manning the event couldn't be nicer. The venue itself is gorgeous and was perfect with my love of history and rustic atmosphere. You simply cannot go wrong with choosing Greenery and the Carriage House for your wedding!
