About The Knowlton Mansion

The Knowlton Mansion is a mansion wedding venue located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which also serves the Lehigh Valley area. From the moment couples and guests arrive at this sprawling mansion, they will be in awe of the stunning architecture and landscaping. The estate, which was originally constructed back in the 19th-century, was restored by Conroy Catering. When they restored this country estate in 1999, they did add contemporary elements yet carefully retained many of the classic Victorian touches so that its past could still be celebrated.

Facilities and Capacity
The Knowlton Mansion is an ideal spot to host a bridal shower, engagement party, ceremony, and reception. Couples have both indoor as well as uncovered outdoor site options to choose from. The thirteen acres of gardens are always meticulously planned and maintained and provide a cozy and romantic setting in which to exchange your vows. Tall, lush trees frame the exterior, and secluded garden sites are found all throughout the property providing couples with plenty of privacy. If you like, you can also host your wedding inside of the mansion. There is an expansive ballroom and conservatory for couples to enjoy with their guests. Due to the spacious interior, couples are able to invite up to 250 of their friends and family to come join them on their big day. The property also has a bridal suite for brides and bridesmaids to get ready in.

Services Offered
Every couple who books their wedding at the Knowlton Mansion will get to enjoy setup and clean up services so that their planning process is as stress-free as possible. The venue also provides necessities such as tables, chairs, china, flatware, glassware, and linens. A dance floor as well as areas for DJs and live bands can be requested too. For the convenience of the entire wedding party, there is an onsite parking lot with the option for valet parking. There is also wheelchair access for members of the wedding party who may have special needs.

    Most friendly and helpful staff...food amazing!!!

    Our daughter Lindsey and her husband Scott got married on March 23, 2019, and it was such a beautiful and magical day. We had the best experience w/Knowlton planning our daughter's wedding. Everyone we dealt with was kind, helpful and professional. The food was insanely delicious and cake so amazing...I loved the cake so much, I ate leftover cake for the entire week after weeding:)...The best venue ever...you felt as if you were in a warm home with gorgeous details that took your breath away! Thank you so much for the wonderful memories!!!

    Making history in Philadelphia

    My husband and I knew we wanted to have our wedding here the moment we walked in the door. The building has so much history and it has stood the test of time. We were looking for a location close to home, which would look incredible everywhere in photos, and would also not break the bank. We really wanted to get married in a historic building, and this place had ticked all the boxes. All the food was delicious and we had heard so many compliments about the food and the building. Our favorites were the duck hors d'oeuvres, the chicken and waffles, and the bavarian cream filled chiffon cake. It felt so luxurious. The staff was always friendly, attentive and incredible accomodating. We also had a wine tasting in the cellar, which is a very romantic little spot that feels like being transported to Europe. It's incredibly charming and was a key part in our perfect day ever.

    Beautiful Venue, Great Food, Attentive Staff

    The Knowlton Mansion is a hidden gem in North Philadelphia. I had never heard of it before I started planning my wedding, but am so glad I found it. The venue is beautiful, the staff were responsive and attentive both during the planning phase and on the day of our wedding (they made sure we ate, and our glasses were never empty!) The food was really great - and they threw in some nice additions like a wine tasting in the wine cellar and valet parking. I would highly recommend!
