Kim & Everyone at Drexelbrook are just AMAZING!Sent on 10/04/2020
Kim made the planning process so much easier! She is great at communicating with her brides and she made the evening run smoothly!
The food was to die for! Everyone kept saying how tasty their meals were! The wait staff, bartenders, and helpers were very professional. One of the women working even noticed my water glass was low, as I’m greeting guests at each and every table, and she refilled it for me! I mean how much more service can you get!
They helped make sure my husband had is jacket on for the cake cutting, made sure that we actually got to eat our meals, and constantly made sure we had a drink!
Overall, I was so thrilled with our wedding and everyone there made it perfect! Thank you so much to Kim and the Drexelbrook team!
Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Drexelbrook was thrilled to be apart of your special day! Franklin Commons looked incredible with all of your amazing touches! We certainly hope we can be of assistance in the future.

An extravagant experience!
I never thought planning a wedding could be so simple. My point of contact was Christina Lyle from the time I reached out for a visit and she had never left my side. My wife and I toured the newly renovated facility and fell in love. We found the perfect ballroom to accommodate our small wedding and decided this was the place. Christina gave us a copy of vendors in every area to help ease our day, though we had already found many of our own which DrexelBrook was able to accommodate. Our tasting was so amazing you would have thought it was the wedding day! Fast forward to the day of the wedding.... we stayed at the beautiful Holiday Inn which was brand new and on the property. Everything was ready for us and we didn’t have to worry about a thing. A very beautiful day! Thank you so much!Sent on 04/29/2020

Wonderful Wedding Facility
Our daughter and son in law were married this past Saturday. (07/27/2019) We held the reception at the Drexelbrook. It was the perfect venue; the room was spacious and elegant. The dance floor was a great size to fit all guests. Cocktail hour was wonderful, offering a wide variety of apps. A separate room for the bridal party was set up with hors d”oeuvres before they joined the guests in the main lobby for cocktails. Dinner was delicious, following with cake and ice cream bar We worked with Anthony D’Angelo. Anthony calmly walked us thru each important detail. He was honest with us from our first visit until we left the Holiday Inn parking lot Sunday morning. He listened to us and made each request come to life better than we had imagined. The staff and their execution was flawless. Our wedding at Drexelbrook was enjoyed by many, a memorable occasion! Some guests stayed the night at the new Holiday Inn attached to the Drexelbrook. The convenience and comfort of the hotel was wonderful!Sent on 08/01/2019
Thank you Anthony, Dominic, Fatima, bartenders, and all of the staff. We were so happy with everything! Kevin & Anita Brophy

Choose Drexelbrook- you won’t regret it!
I can’t say enough about Drexelbrook and the experience me, my fiancé, parents and guests had. We worked with Anthony D’Angelo from the beginning and he was so knowledgeable and helpful. He guided us every step of the way and was so patient with all of our questions and anxiety. And the wedding was amazing. So many guests have raves about the ambiance, food, and service. And the new adjoining hotel is spectacular. I just hope to get invited to a wedding there sometime so I can enjoy it as a guestSent on 06/23/2019

The Best of Everything
Our daughter's wedding was on June 8, 2019. The job done by everyone at Drexelbrook was just outstanding. From our initial meeting with their representative Crissey Lyle 18 months ago until we finished packing our car and drove off at the end of the affair, everything was first class. The food served during both the cocktail hour, at dinner and afterwards was outstanding and many of my guests remarked that it was superior to that of the finest restaurants. The staff performed at such a high level of efficiency I can not imagine how they were able to maintain their pace for the entire evening. Always smiling and offering assistance, they were just the greatest. On top of that, the actual facility is stunning in appearance. Cocktail hour was held in their large and beautiful lobby which we entered directly from another room where we had a second ceremony under a Chuppah. Drexelbrook even did a fabulous job assisting us in managing that as well. (The first ceremony was held at our church.) Needless to say, we were very happy with how well everything turned out. No drama! Even the venders they recommended and we used were top notch. You will not be disappointed. By the way, did I mentioned that their pricing is quite reasonable and there is a brand new hotel connected directly to their facility. In summary, we had great food and service in a fabulous facility at a reasonable price. You will not be disappointed.Sent on 06/11/2019
Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center's reply:Hello Mr. & Mrs. Strolle, Thank you kindly for taking the time to share your feedback. it was indeed a great pleasure to meet everyone and assist with such a beautiful and spectacular celebration.

Drexelbrook Catering Excellent Venue
They provided an excellent service. The staff was on point and received many compliments from our guest. They also provided transportation from the hotel, to the church and from the church to the venue. The manager was very prompt in responding to our needs.Sent on 06/07/2019

Drexelbrook and all the staff put on an AMAZING wedding. You all were so attentive to all the details that the entire event was seamless. I have gotten many comments like, " you set the bar high", " going to be hard for the next wedding to top this one", "outstanding wedding".Sent on 04/15/2019

Amazing food and service!!
We are so glad that we had Drexelbrook for our wedding! We got married at Franklin Commons in Phoenixville on 10/12/18 and Drexelbrook is the exclusive caterer for the venue. The food was phenomenal (and there was plenty of it) and the service was even better! We worked with Kim Savino during our wedding planning process and she made every step of planning so easy and enjoyable. On our wedding day we had Ray and Emily as the Manager and Co-Manager and they were AMAZING! Seriously they were just the best - we raved about them for days! They were on top of everything and always 5 steps ahead! We had so many guests comment on how wonderful all of the Drexelbrook team was and how great the food was! Cocktail hour, dinner, the coffee and sweets bar, all of it is seriously exceptional. We even had a donut wall that was a huge hit! We would recommend Kim and the entire Drexelbrook team to everyone!!Sent on 10/21/2018

Working with the Drexelbrook was truly a wonderful experience. Our representative was Jeanne and she was extremely helpful and accommodating. As a bride who no longer lives in the area scheduling meetings were sometimes tricky but Jeanne was always able to come through. My reception was beautiful and went very smoothly. The entire staff was great! Very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. I truly could not have made a better choice. My husband and I are very happy with our experience here and heartily recommend this venue. Thanks you to everyone there for making our day beautiful and easy!Sent on 07/03/2018

We used Drexelbrook Catering at Franklin Commons in Phoenixville...Sent on 11/14/2017
Kim Savino is absolutely incredible. From the very first day I met her, she was nothing but positive, happy, and helpful. She made us feel like we were the most important couple in the world every single time we met with her. When we had our food tasting, she had personalized menus made for us and put on a special dinner. It was very evident through each meeting how important customer service is to her and her business, Drexelbrook Catering. On the day of the wedding, Kim and her staff were so incredible, they honestly left me speechless. Fatima and Craig did EVERYTHING and ANYTHING they could to make our day incredible. Fatima even helped figure out my bustle when we couldn't figure it out! Craig pulled my chair out for me every single time I went to sit down (which was a lot). Any time I needed something or my groom needed something, we didn't even have to search for a staff member, they were right in front of us ready to help us and take our requests. I really can't say enough about Drexelbrook, Kim, and her staff. The food was also INCREDIBLE and there was SO MUCH of it! The stations during cocktail hour were a hit and the food at dinner was fantastic. HAVE YOUR EVENT AT FRANKLIN COMMONS!!!! You get the best of both worlds - the amazing venue (with so much to offer) and the amazing staff at Drexelbrook. I promise you won't be disappointed! Thank you Kim for making our day so special - it well exceeded any expectations that we had!
Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center's reply:Thank you so very much Jessica for your kind words and selecting Drexelbrook at the Franklin Commons for your Wedding. It was our pleasure to be a part of your special day. We wish you and Wayne a lifetime of happiness. We certainly hope we can serve you again in the near future.

The wedding reception of our daughter and new son-in-law was so fabulous! Our coordinator, Jeannie, was a delight to work with throughout the whole process. She and her staff paid attention to every detail that we had discussed. The cocktail hour provided a perfect start to the evening. There was plenty of room for guests to mix and mingle in the Grand Lobby. In addition, we had beautiful weather, so the staff had set up a second bar on the new outdoor patio where our guests enjoyed comfortable seating around the firepits. The food stations and hand-passed hors d’oeuvres were all outstanding and enjoyed by all!Sent on 11/14/2017
The ballroom was stunning - so elegant, classy and spacious! The elevated sweetheart table was a special touch, as every guest could see the bride and groom and they had a full view of all the guests and activities below.
The kitchen staff did an exceptional job with all the food - from the hors d’oeuvres to dinner and finally to the sweet endings offerings. We had some friends tell us they have been to eight weddings this year and this wedding was, by far, the best. All the guests raved about the food.
When looking for a wedding venue in the Philadelphia area, our daughter and son-in-law were seeking a place with simple elegance that had good drinks and especially, great food, at a reasonable price. The Drexelbrook and staff delivered on all fronts!
The Drexelbrook is currently building a hotel on site, that is expected to open sometime in 2018. We booked over 18 months ago and were then worried and disappointed to learn of the hotel construction and loss of the original patio we had loved. However, the Drexelbrook addressed all our concerns with the new replacement patio. Our guests never even realized there was construction in progress behind the beautiful ballroom. The Drexelbrook will be an even more fabulous venue once the hotel is completed!!
Thank you to Jeannie and all the staff for such a memorable celebration!
Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center's reply:Donna all I can say is WOW for your daughter's wedding. It was an absolute pleasure working with everyone on this magical day! Please send pictures!

I was so lucky that someone recommended Drexelbrook to me!! My wedding day was perfect and everyone at Drexelbrook went above and beyond to make it that way. All of my guests said the service was outstanding and they've never had better wedding food, than what we had at Drexelbrook. We even had one dedicated employee, Diamond, just taking care of the bridal party, which was so helpful! My husband and I, and my bridal party, never had to go up to the bar, Diamond always brought us our drinks and made sure everything was perfect. They did an amazing job setting up the space for our wedding and it was better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you SO much Drexelbrook for making my wedding day so much fun and absolutely perfect!!Sent on 10/08/2017

I had my wedding here in July 2017 and I highly recommend this venue! I have nothing but praise for them! Jeannie was my wedding coordinator and she was absolutely amazing. From day one she was patient, accommodating, detail-oriented, organized, friendly, responsive, and truly showed she cared about us. She really listens to what your vision is and makes sure it comes alive on your wedding night. The other staff are phenomenal as well. During our wedding reception we had two attendants specifically assigned to us and our parents, and they were always around asking us if we wanted any food or drink. If it weren't for them I probably would have missed out on a lot of the cocktail hour food and dessert because we were busy greeting people!Sent on 07/11/2017
The food itself was absolutely delicious, from the appetizers to dinner to dessert to drinks. The cost is very reasonable compared to other venues - you get your own signature drink, a TON of food, an outdoor firepit, etc. The ONLY critique I have is that they are currently undergoing construction (attaching a hotel to the venue), but they did a good job of hiding any evidence of construction the actual day of (you wouldn't know if you were a guest).
Drexelbrook is AMAZING and I highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married. We looked at a dozen venues and we're so glad we decided on here. We are so happy with how everything leading up to the wedding and the actual wedding day played out.

We had our wedding at Drexelbrook in the south/central ballroom a few weeks ago, and what an incredible day it was! Rain, terrible heat, and high humidity could not stop us from having a beautiful day, largely in part to Drexelbrook.Sent on 07/09/2017
From the moment we first met with Drexelbrook, they were so flexible and easy to work with. They listened to the vision I had and made it happen, better than I ever could. I'm still receiving compliments on the beauty of the ballroom and the deliciousness of the food. So many people have told me the apps were the best they've ever tasted.
Kim Savino was our contact person throughout the entire process and does her job with perfection. What a wonderful asset to the company. The day was better than we could have ever imagined. Wish we could do it all over again!
If you're getting married, CHOOSE DREXELBROOK!

Looking for a reception venue for your wedding in the Philadelphia area? Well, your search just ended because there is no reason to book anywhere other than Drexelbrook. We cannot emphasize enough how wonderful our reception was. From the first consultation over nine months ago up until the end of the night, their staff was on point in every way. Jean Fernandez was our wedding coordinator and there aren't enough words to describe how helpful she was in making sure every detail was covered and ensuring our event was stress-free, enjoyable, and customized exactly to our vision. As soon as we arrived on the big day the staff was right there to ensure that we had everything we needed, that everything was set up correctly, and that the events of the night moved along as scheduled with no hiccups. Our reception was in the beautiful South Ballroom..... I cannot express how absolutely amazing everything looked, from the lighting to the tables, to the centerpieces, et cetera. Additionally, Drexelbrook is known for their food, and everything was utterly delicious. Hors de'ourves, entrees, salads, dessert, our signature cocktail, everything was spectacular. Do yourself a favor and book your reception at Drexelbrook. You will NOT be disappointed or stressed in any way. Thank you thank you Jeannie and Drexelbrook for everything!!!!Sent on 04/03/2017

In a word, FANTASTIC!!!Sent on 12/22/2016
Doug and I were married in December, in a tent in our backyard. Not an easy venue to pull off, especially in December, but Dominic and his team did just that! We felt taken care of from start to finish. During the planning, Dominic encouraged our ideas and using his skills and experience, took it up a notch to perfection! Tim and Fatima (as well as all of the staff), were absolutely fantastic. They were so attentive and thoughtful throughout the night. I never had an empty glass or plate. We have had MANY compliments on the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. And the food. The food was top notch! We couldn't have been happier with the quality, taste and presentation. Again, we have had SO many compliments on how delicious the food was and how "fun" it was. I hope to have an opportunity to use Drexelbrook Catering in the future and in the meantime, I will recommend them again and again.

Drexelbrook made our wedding day an absolute dream! From day one, working with everyone there was such a pleasure! Jeannie was by far the best part of the whole experience. From day one, she was attentive, organized, and offered great suggestions to put our mind at ease. We never had to worry about a thing because we knew they had it taken care of! On the day of the wedding Ray and Diamond took care of the wedding party's every need. Our guests have not stopped raving about the wedding - everyone loved the food and the venue, which is absolutely gorgeous! My favorite part about Drexelbrook is that it doesn't feel like a business. They really seem to care about the people being married. All in all, it was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend this venue!Sent on 12/02/2016

My fiancé and I extensively researched and visited numerous wedding venues in the Philadelphia area. Drexelbrook was unequivocally our top wedding venue for so many reasons.Sent on 09/14/2016
We were attracted to Drexelbrook’s well-established reputation in event and catering, elegant wow factor of the South ballroom and South Terrace gazebo, and variety of freshly prepared food & beverage selection.
Since we were an out of town bride and groom that lived in different states, their wedding package really helped saved us time and worry. Their package included extras not found at other venues such as a custom wedding cake from one of Philadelphia top wedding cake bakeries, floral centerpieces, chiavari ballroom chairs, large colorful selection of linens and napkins, and complimentary guest parking.
Overall, the professional, friendly, responsive staff was what solidified our choice. From our first meeting with our Drexelbrook wedding coordinator Christina Lyle, we sensed her genuine excitement in planning our wedding. During the year and a half of correspondences, she always happily answered our million questions and worked tirelessly to accommodate our requests. We were pleasantly surprised the week before our wedding, when she added free upgrades to make our wedding day extra special.
The day of the wedding confirmed we had made the right choice. Ray, Ginny, Kim, and their staff always made sure my fiancé and I were well taken care of and fed. The Drexelbrook team worked their magic and made the day flowed seamlessly. Drexelbrook, thank you for an amazing day we will never forget!

From start to finish our experience working with Drexelbrook Catering & Special Event Center has been beyond amazing. I reached out to several venues via phone and email and Drexelbrook responded with 20 minutes of my inquiry. They were extremely friendly and informative over the phone and made an appointment for my fiancé and I to see Drexelbrook. There we met our wedding guardian angel Anthony Deangelo. He knew just the right questions to ask us in order to properly envision our special day and make it come to life. He went over all the information regarding wedding packages and all of the things included. They reach out local vendors to create a very impressive inclusive wedding package. Anthony provided contact information so we could reach him at any point during the wedding planning process with ideas, questions, or concerns and he always answered back promptly. Our big day began with our cocktail hour in the Franscotti room. Everyone was greeted with chilled champagne. There were also two food stations set up and white glove catered hor’douvs. So much delicious food that first hour I was worried everyone would be to full to eat. But that was definitely not a problem. Our guests were so excited to eat dinner. Our reception was in the Mansion ballroom. The first glimpse of seeing our beautiful and elegant room took my breath away. Our dinner was deliciously made with fresh ingredients. They also assigned us our own server who ensured we ate and drank (I had friends say they were barely able to eat or drink at their own weddings). Guests still compliment us on the food and drinks at our wedding. We danced the night away. The staff was so pleasant and made sure our wedding ran smoothly. I would recommend Drexelbrook Catering and Anthony DeAngelo to all our friends and family because they have now become a part of our family.Sent on 07/25/2016
