You Will Be Amazed!

My husband and I had an exceptional experience with The Merion when we held our wedding reception here in April 2022. Our coordinator Calli did an outstanding job with making sure everything ran smoothly for our special day. The food, service, and amenities were all top notch. Over a year later, our friends and relatives still talk about the fantastic cuisine, the beautiful Skylight Ballroom, and all the fun. We had the perfect wedding reception thanks to The Merion and their amazing staff.

Dream Wedding

I got married Oct. 7 and The Merion provided me with the wedding of my dreams! Holly, Nick, and all the staff were amazing! Holly made the entire year of planning smooth. Day of the wedding, none of the staff allowed me to stress! They were so accommodating that one of biggest compliments I received is how kind the staff was to my guests. I wish I could get married again just to experience the fun all over again at The Merion.

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 !!

Cindy Patrick Photography, Inc. 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!
