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.

    My fiancee and I just got married at the Knowlton Mansion this past weekend. If you want to get married at a place that is so special, different and personalized, this is definitely the venue for you. Their staff is on point at all times and beyond helpful. We had rave reviews about the wine cellar, the food and the general atmosphere. Thank you again!

    If you want a venue that will wow, this is it. Immaculate interior and grounds. Every detail is perfect and so Victorian chic. The staff is also amazing. See my review on Conroy Catering to get the full details on them. Could not recommend enough.

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!
