The Perfect Wedding Reception!
Booking the William Penn Inn for our wedding day was one of the best decisions my husband and I made! From our first meeting with Monica, her and the entire staff made everything so easy for us. It’s clear that they know what they are doing with large events, as they were able to answer all of our questions and requests (almost always with “Sure, no problem!”) And that they thought and planned for things that weren’t even on our radar.Sent on 01/07/2019
We live about 2 hours away so when looking for a venue we were hoping for a “one stop shop” and the William Penn Inn exceeded our expectations. Monica (the banquet manager) and Kate (the florist) made it so easy to set up and coordinate appointments and they were always responsive to our emails. Both ladies really listened to what we were looking for on our wedding day and worked towards making sure it was exactly what we wanted.
Kate was an amazing florist to work with. As someone that can’t tell a flower from a weed she walked us through the process and created gorgeous bouquets and centerpieces for our wedding day.
Monica guided us through the entire planning process and answered every question promptly and with a smile.
The day of our wedding could not have gone any smoother. Our day of coordinator Karen was fabulous and made sure that everything was taken care of. My husband and I literally had no stress and were able to enjoy every second of our reception. I was expecting to have some element of running around/ tracking people down/ coordinating vendors but I didn’t experience any of that. I truly got to be a guest at my wedding and spend as much time as I wanted on the dance floor!
Besides the second to none service, the food was amazing! We got so many compliments from our guests on how good everything tasted.
Without a doubt we would recommend the William Penn Inn to anyone looking to have a wedding in the Philly suburbs. The staff is incredible and I really can’t emphasize enough how easy it is to plan an event with them. My husband and I had the perfect wedding day thanks to them!
