    Unforgettable Wedding

    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.

    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!
