Set among 650 acres of rolling meadows and pristine woodlands in Media, Pennsylvania, Tyler Arboretum offers a setting unparalleled for its natural beauty, historic charm, and true romance. Here, Mother Nature's talents set the stage for breathtaking weddings held amid butterfly-filled gardens, towering trees, fields of wildflowers, and centuries-old structures.
Within the stone bank barn, circa 1792, a reception room can accomodate gatherings of up to 75 guests. The capacity is increased up to 175 guests when combined with tenting over an adjacent patio, which overlooks a rolling valley of majestic trees and a babbling stream. For larger parties, a freestanding tent can be erected on the Painter Library lawn set among flower-filled beds, or alongside the Fragrant Garden. The porch and lawn of another historic structure, Lachford Hall, circa 1738, are ideal for ceremonies. The Arboretum's many gardens and charming structures offer unlimited backdrops for photography.
Dating back to a 1681 land grant from William Penn, Tyler has remained an oasis of tranquility for centuries. Twenty miles of marked trails encourage visitors to explore one of the oldest and largest arboreta in the United States. This exceptional venue is located only 30 minutes west of Philadelphia in an area offering several charming bed and breakfasts.

Best day ever!! (Literally!)
We could not have dreamed a more perfect day for our wedding! Everything was amazing including the food, cake, ambience, staff, and service! The location options for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all breathtaking and staged perfectly. We loved the fact that we had flexibility that wasn’t impacted by budget. Not to mention, a weatherproof plan B just in case. Cassie, our wedding coordinator, was absolutely amazing! She was super responsive to emails, answered all of our questions, and made the entire planning process completely painless and fun. She took our vision that we had for our day and brought it to life! She definitely understood us as a couple and we were very thankful and lucky to have that from her! Cassie and the entire JAM and Tyler staff made our day a dream come true! We could not have asked for a more perfect day!Sent on 07/14/2019

Super accommodating, supportive staff in beautiful location
This team at Tyler Arboretum is on point. We highly recommend them! JAM Catering (Jeffrey A. Miller Catering) manages the event, and they truly take care of everything! Shout-out to Cassie Smith, our wedding coordinator, and her team, for making our wedding day the most incredible day of our lives! It rained on our wedding day, and we had to move our location from outside in the Magnolia Garden to inside in The Barn, and the team was so supportive, quick to response, and flexible throughout the whole process!Sent on 07/05/2019

Amazing Labor Day weekend wedding
We booked Tyler for our 9/1/18 wedding and it was the best decision we made! We looked at about 20 venues and each one just had something missing. When we walked onto Tyler’s grounds we knew that was our place! The grounds are impeccably kept and are beautiful. The greens and the flowers are just amazing. They have multiple options for outdoor ceremony locations and each is just as beautiful as the next. The reception tent is so sweet with the string lights and clear top, overlooking the gardens. The best part about this venue though is the “back-up” rain plan. Guys, Tyler’s plan B is better then most places plan A’s! This was truly the selling point for us. The renovated barn is stunning, and we ended up using it as the weather was not on our side that day. We received SO many complements on how beautiful our ceremony was and how great the barn was. Jeffery Miller was incredible to work with and the food was top notch. Our wedding coordinator Lauren was also amazing, and spent so much Time with us answering all of our questions, and the day of she made sure that everything ran smoothly and made sure that we were eating :) We could not have been happier with our choice for Tyler, and it will always hold a special place in our hearts!Sent on 10/22/2018
