$11k - $13k For 100 Guests

Tucked away on the secluded grounds of a historic 19th-century estate, the beautifully refurbished 150-year-old Carriage House at Rockwood Park is sited on a 162-acre park just north of Wilmington, Delaware. Its stunning location belies its proximity to I-95 and numerous hotels for out-of-town guests. With expert wedding planners and 40 years of creative culinary know-how by Greenery Caterers, 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. Because only one event is scheduled at a time, brides and grooms will know they will receive undivided attention.

    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!

    Flawless, absolutely perfect

    We planned our wedding and expected things to go wrong, but that really didn’t happen and it’s because of the staff at The Greenery Caterers. Our day-of coordinator Michelle was an absolute delight and we knew when we met her that she would not let anything go wrong. She was like the Olivia Pope (“Scandal”) of weddings; she handled everything and it was perfect. We had nothing to worry about. The food was amazing too! We are so happy with our choice and we highly recommend The Carriage House, Greenery Caterers and Michelle Quirk. We had the best day of our lives.

    The best day ever!

    Our experience with The Carriage House was amazing! We were originally scheduled for 8/8/2020, but postponed due to Covid-19; the staff was incredibly flexible and helpful in the process of brainstorming safe ceremony/reception ideas for 2020 and ultimately postponing to 8/7/2021. Michelle and her team were absolute rockstars the day of our wedding and made everything come together beautifully without any stress on our end! Highly recommend this venue!
