The wedding of our dreams!

Have your wedding at the Inn at Villanova!!! They gave us our dream wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect! Kristin, our coordinator was incredible from the first time we met her. She answered all of my questions and emails quickly and made everything happen for us! The combination of the hotel, mansion, and ballroom made for a gorgeous wedding in a beautiful place, with the ease of accommodations just steps from our reception. The mansion was gorgeous for cocktail hour and had many different spaces so people could wander and mingle as they liked. The ballroom was decorated beautifully and did not feel too crowded or too empty with our 90 guests. The food was incredible, all of our guests commented on how delicious everything was! We had an after party back in the mansion which was fun and delicious and then brunch in the mansion the next morning, which was again, delicious. Brian and Sarah from the food and beverage team were kind, professional, and excellent. They made sure everything ran smoothly and was perfect! The staff was lovely and so helpful and kind. The service, food, and atmosphere were all incredible. It was the most perfect wedding and we are forever grateful to the Inn! Thank you!!!

Look No Further!

We cannot recommend The Inn at Villanova highly enough. We wanted a low stress but upscale (while still being casual) event, and Kristin and her team made it such a joy to plan. Our guests raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was.

The Inn at Villanova is the Quintessential Venue

Wire only gave me a small space to write my review. Not enough space to say what an extraordinarily wonderful venue for our wedding!! The Inn is BEAUTIFUL! We occupied every lovely space all day. This was perfect -so convenient + perfect for pics. Food was generous, marvelous + delicious. Each course/station was beautifully presented! The Filet is Phenomenal! STAFF is incredible, helpful + friendly. Kristin is the best, fulfilled every request with a smile + a YES. EVERY guest has called me to say what a fantastic wedding it was, and it was because the INN is the quintessential venue for a wedding.
