They gave me the wedding of my dreams.
There are not enough positive things I can say about The Merion. This venue is hands down, without hesitation, the SPOT to get married. From beginning to end, The Merion took care of us and guided us through the process perfectly. Adrianna Petrongolo was our coordinator and she was an absolute GEM! I felt like her and I have been friends for years. She answered so many of my questions, addressed any concerns I may have had along the way and accommodated us in every which way we needed. She is super professional and knowledgeable and it was an absolute joy to work with her.
If you tell anyone that you are getting married at The Merion, the first thing they will probably talk to you about is the food. I've never been to The Merion until my wedding and I only ever heard from others how incredible the food/spread was. To then see it for myself (at my wedding as much as I could) was just unreal. Cocktail hour? You kidding?... KILLER. Dinner...DELICIOUS. They decorated our room to absolute perfection, as well.
The service was dynamite, the staff was friendly, fun, helpful and on top of EVERYTHING. There were so many surprises; I never felt so special before. I felt like a celebrity. I was so sad when the night ended... I still want to re-live that day. The Merion gave me and my husband the wedding of our dreams. I know our guests will talk about it for years to come. We swear that no one will top our wedding and we owe the majority of that to this venue.Sent on 12/26/2019

This venue was outstanding!
This venue was outstanding!! Although the planning process went a little awry in terms of communication, the night turned out to be phenomenal! The service all night was on point--anything that I needed or my guests needed was handled, the food was awesome as well as the variety of selection, and the overall beauty of the venue just made the night that much more magical. All of my guests raved about the great night, and still continue to tell us how amazing it was. I honestly could not have had a more perfect wedding, thanks to the wonderful people at the Merion.Sent on 03/09/2020
The Merion is very professional easy to work with and creates memorable events.
Always an Incredibly Spectacular Event hosted by The Most Professional Staff in the Tri-State Area !! Truly Magnificent Settings to be Photographed in. We are always excited to have the opportunity to be at The Fabulous Merion !!
The Merion is one of my most absolute favorite venues to photograph a wedding! Their Skylight Ballroom is magnificent, but every room has its own grandeur and style! The staff is super courteous and friendly -- not just to the bride and groom and their guests, but to the vendors (like me:) as well, and this is most appreciated! I always feel at home when I'm there for an event, and you will too! You cannot go wrong with The Merion. Fabulous food, fantastic staff, and photogenic grounds. What more could you ask for? Nothing! They are the best in the area!
