About

On WeddingWire since 2015

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. There is also wheelchair access for members of the wedding party who may have special needs.

The most perfect venue!!

This was the absolute perfect venue! It was very unique, which I loved! The front part is an old mansion and the back was an addition they put on and has a more rustic feel. There's a barn out back and a beautiful outdoor ceremony location. The back up for rain is in the barn, which they just renovated and looks gorgeous! There's so many unique places for pictures (mansion, nature, barn, wine cellar, etc). The staff was AMAZING. Eileen was our coordinator for planning purposes prior to the wedding and she was sooo helpful. She made sure every single detail was planned out perfectly. And our day of staff, Dani and Rebecca were the best!! They made sure the day went smoothly and that we had everything we needed at all times. They really made you feel like your wedding was the most important day for them, too. They were just the loveliest. The food was INCREDIBLE. I'm not usually a big fan of wedding food, but all of our guests were blown away by the food selection and quality.

Day of my dreams!

I don't even know where to begin with all of the AMAZING things I have to say about Conroy Catering and Knowlton Mansion. The staff from the very beginning made the entire booking process so smooth and easy. They were beyond responsive to all my emails and so easy to work with. Eileen made our coordination so organized and was beyond helpful! We couldn't have had the organized and smooth day without her. Then Chris as our day of coordinator was beyond amazing!! She placed everything exactly where I imagined and made Knowlton look breathtaking. My guests who walked in were all blown away with its beauty! Then the FOOD!! Amazing!!! My guests today are still talking about how delicious everything was. I never had wedding food this fantastic. Every worker and bartender at Conroy Catering is fantastic and dedicated to making your day perfect. I was truly blown away and at a loss of words for how amazing they made my wedding! I wish I could relive it all over again!!!

I had the pleasure of once again officiating at a wedding at Knowlton Mansion last night. I was so impressed. The place looked so beautiful, inside and out and the cocktail hour food that I tasted was fabulous and abundant. The staff was all professional and approachable. I love recommending Knowlton Mansion to brides when they ask. I look forward to marrying my next couple there!
