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 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. Because only one event is scheduled at a time, brides and grooms will know they will receive undivided attention.

Facilities and Capacity
The Carriage House at Rockwood Park can host up to 225 guests in five event spaces as well as outdoors. There is a beautiful stone-walled indoor reception area that has direct access to a walled rose garden and other outdoor areas. The facility is large enough to provide abundant space for an indoor wedding ceremony should the need arise due to inclement weather or at the request of the happy couple. Reserved for one event per day, the event offers guests exclusive use of the event space for their special day.

    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!

    This venue is lovely. Greenery Caterers did a wonderful job and their coordinator, Michelle is excellent! Michelle is friendly, very responsive and a true professional. You will love working with Michelle as much as I did! Highly recommend!

    A Dream Come True

    Where to start!?! Our wedding day was a dream come true! Our vision came to life all because of those at the Carriage House! As soon as we walked through the Carriage House we instantly fell in love. The rustic charm was exactly what we invisioned. The Christmas decor was breathtaking. All the lights in the trees outside made it feel like a true winter wedding!

    Michelle was amazing to work with! She made everything so easy. She kept the night running smoothly and we cannot thank her enough. Everyone that met her couldn't stop saying how amazing she was and how great the night was all because of her! Michelle checked on us constantly, making sure everything was perfect!

    Patti made the entire process easy. Our wedding was postponed and Patti helped to make that time less stressful! Thank you for that! All our guests raved about the food and the atmosphere; saying it was one of the best weddings they have been too!

    We are forever grateful to all those at the Carriage House!
