    A beautiful and easy wedding weekend at the IAVU

    The experience of working with the IAVU was amazing. The venue is a hidden gem and just beautiful. The team I worked with was amazing and executed our day to a tee. The team went above and beyond to truly make it perfect. I would recommend having a party here through and through!

    White Glove Level Service! A++

    My wife and I were looking at several venues in the Philadelphia area when we found The Inn at Villanova. We could not be happier with our event! Everything went off smoothly and was handled for us so we could just focus on enjoying the day. Kristin was fantastic in helping us coordinate all the details. They made sure every small detail we wanted was met. The food was amazing and the attached hotel allowed us to have our guests stay right at the same venue. Perfect location!

    The Inn at Villanova University's reply:

    Hi Avery, Thank you for this review! You were both so fun to work with to create this amazing event! Thank you for choosing the Inn!
