About The Merion

The Merion is a luxury, European-designed wedding venue in Cinnaminson, New Jersey. This stunning masterpiece of modern and classic European architecture is the perfect venue for grand occasions or intimate yet lavish weddings. The Merion offers several indoor locations for your ceremony, and four unique ballrooms for your wedding reception. They also provide French-style catering and custom cake services for couples who wish to plan their entire wedding under one roof. With these flexible services, The Merion is able to create an extravagant evening you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Facilities and Capacity
The Merion is known in Cinnaminson for its elegant marble columns, decorative crystal chandeliers, and a classic spiral staircase that is perfect for a grand wedding entrance. Its architecture and decor exude sophistication and style. Up to 500 guests are able to attend an event in one of its four main ballrooms. Each ballroom has a separate cocktail room, a private restroom, and a bridal suite for wedding preparation. These rooms may also be used by the couple to take a private moment to themselves. The Palace and Palazzo ballrooms are inspired by a late 16th-century European style. The Skylight Ballroom is characterized by grand dome skylights, as suited to the name. The Empire ballroom emanates a classic New York style, featuring mosaic art and a 600-gallon fish tank. No matter which ballroom you choose, you can design it to fit your wedding-specific vision and your own unique style.

Services Offered
In addition to its facilities, the Merion offers full-service catering for weddings. Each menu is custom selected to meet your needs and is served by professional, white-gloved attendants. The Merion also has a Pastry Chef team on-staff to create a custom wedding cake. The cake and dinner options are made with fine and fresh ingredients to wow your guests and make your wedding day just as you envisioned it. With every couple, the Merion assigns an event planner and provides a list of recommended vendors so you can do all your event coordination in one place.

Location
You can access the Merion off US-130, near the Cinnaminson Center. It is across the street from Hanker’s Flowers.

    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.

  • Cindy Patrick Photography, Inc. Wedding Photographers

    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!
