Where do I even begin. When my mom, sister and I initially went to the merion to see if I wanted to have my wedding there, it was basically a no brainer. The venue is gorgeous and when we met with Nicole who gave us a tour and showed us the menu of all the food I knew we had to have our wedding there. We had the palace ballroom which is an absolutely beautiful and classic looking room. Nicole was outstanding through the entire process. Our engagement was almost a year and a half long and she was wonderful in communicating with me - she would literally email me back same day or next day any time I emailed her about anything. She was also great in communicating with my other vendors. She is very organized and made everything so easy for me!!! She was also an amazing support when any stressors came up during planning. She helped to make our wedding day literally everything we wanted it to be. I talked to cliff and Dave a few times throughout the process as well and they were both nice as could be!! The food at our wedding was INSANE. All of our guests were raving about the huge variety of food choices and how amazing everything tasted!! While my husband and I didn’t have much time to eat since we were talking to everyone, I did still get to enjoy some of my dinner which was delicious. The portions they give you are insane and they send you home with a ton as well (so at least now my husband and I will get to enjoy the delicious food at home!) Our bridal attendant (deb), Maitre D’ (nick) and captain (dee) took care of my husband and I on the day of (helped to get us anything we needed) and were right there getting us anything we needed and making sure we were happy and taken care of the entire night. They were just amazing and my husband and I were blown away with how taken care of we felt. Thank you so much to Nicole and the rest of the team - we couldn’t have asked for anything more and I would highly recommend having your wedding at the merion if you’re looking at venues. - Georgie & DaveSent on 05/05/2019

I can't say enough about how much we loved working with The Merion. As a gay couple we wanted a venue who wouldn't treat us any differently. From our first visit, we felt at home and welcomed. Nicole and Stephanie worked with us throughout this process and were both perfect. They paid attention to every detail, established great communication and tailored our wedding to suit our every need (no matter how out of the box our requests were). Our guests RAVED about the food and loved how beautiful the venue itself was. It was the perfect location for our wedding, the Palazzo ballroom will always hold a special place in our hearts.Sent on 11/26/2018

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!
