I literally cannot say enough good things about Pen Ryn. We picked the venue bc of the uniqueness of it, the views and the mansion itself. Elizabeth went over every little detail with us – and after coming back for a 2nd visit with my parents we signed the contract! The Thursday before the wedding we dropped everything off for our wedding– and Elizabeth ensured me everything would be set up perfect and look just how I wanted it! After our ceremony at our church – we headed to Pen Ryn for pictures. Everyone kept saying how amazing the mansion was and the view of the Delaware – and it really was!! The grass was cut perfectly, the flowers were amazing – everything was just amazing!! While we were taking pictures down at the river – Joe came out with some waters for me and my husband. Joe was our bridal server – and he was incredible!! After pics we came inside and Joe was waiting at the front door for us with our signature drinks and food!! My husband was so excited bc he was starving!! People told us they could barely eat their dinners bc the food at cocktail hour was so good they couldn’t stop eating. I highly recommend the mini burgers, bacon scallops & Asian station!!!! Joe brought us in the see the main ballroom before the reception started! It was breathtaking. The room was so perfect and looked better than I could have ever imagined! Linda was our matradee – and she was just as amazing! She was so friendly and a huge help! All of the servers were so polite and very attentive to their tables! The reception flew by – but we enjoyed every single second of it!! Our reception was until 10:30 but we stayed and danced until 10:50ish! As we were saying goodbye to guests all of the employees packed up all of our stuff. All of my totes of stuff were sitting at the front door packed and waiting for us – and the staff loaded everything into our cars! I really wish we could live that whole night over again - I would highly recommend having your wedding here!!!Sent on 09/17/2014

Best staff ever!
I cannot say enough good things about Pen Ryn and the people who worked there to help make my wedding day so beautiful and special! From the day we met Jenna at our tasting I knew we were in good hands! She went over every single detail with us and made sure everything we asked for was also written down on the contract. Ashley ended up taking over when Jenna went on maternity leave and she met all of the requests that we had discussed with Jenna perfectly. The two of them are so attentive and caring, they respond to emails within hours, and you can tell they really love what they do! It was so easy with them both! On the day of our wedding, my husband and I had the best bridal attendant James who made sure we had food, drink, and even brought a little sample of hors d’oeuvres up to our bridal suite where we decided to take a few minutes to ourselves right after our ceremony. The food was outstanding, we upgraded a few of the items at cocktail hour which I highly recommend. Luckily, without upgrading, you still get more options than any other venue we had visited. People are still raving about the food to us! Everyone loved the hibachi station, sushi station, and the mashed potato bar! The room was gorgeous as well, they redid Bell voir feb 2018 and the floors are just gorgeous. James, Jenna, Ashley and JP made this night beyond perfect with their service, the night went so smoothly that if I could recommend any venue at all I would 110% recommend Bell voir manor or Pen Ryn just because of the staff.Sent on 04/09/2019

We had our wedding at Belle Voir Manor and everything was excellent: the food, the service and the grounds. Jenna, James and Jim (lol!) were incredibly helpful both before and during our big day, and I never had to ask for anything! So many different parts of the evening, like cocktail hour and the candy bar were a huge hit with our guests. This place does not feel like a “wedding factory” at ALL like some other popular venues, and we’re incredibly pleased that we chose to host here.Sent on 03/11/2019

I would just like to say that the Pen Ryn Estate was awesome. From the grounds, to the venue, the food, and most especially the Staff. We had Bridget who I cannot say enough about, she was the greatest. We had our wedding on November 3rd and anything we needed or asked for was not a problem. They let me, the Mother of the Groom, and the Mother of the Bride in early so we could see the place by ourselves with out interruption. They catered to every need for the bride and groom down to putting every hors d'oeuvres on their table for them since they were so busy greeting their guests. I highly recommend the Pen Ryn Estates for your wedding!!!Sent on 11/06/2018

Bridget, James, and the rest of the staff made our night such a breeze! They stuck to the time line, and I think at one point we were ahead of schedule! I could go on all day about how amazing they were, we truly had an amazing day. And the food was delicious, all of our guests raves about their meals!

Fantastic venue & staff!
The venue itself is beautiful. Such a unique place overlooking the river. The house has such cool features and the ballroom had more than enough space. We can't say enough about the staff - specifically Jenna. She was extremely proactive throughout the planning process and really went above and beyond to make it a special day for us. All of our guests were so impressed with the food (appetizers and entrees). A big thank you to Pen Ryn for such a wonderful evening!Sent on 10/26/2018

My wedding was 10/4/18 at Belle Voir Manor and it was the most beautiful day ever! The staff at Pen Ryn Estates was wonderful. Special thanks to Bridged, James and Jenna! They made sure everything ran smoothly when it unexpectedly starting raining. I would totally recommend this place for any events big or small. It’s absolutely beautiful and we had a great time!!

My daughters wedding was August 11, 2018. The reception was at Pen Ryn Estate. What an outstanding affair! The weather did not cooperate for us to enjoy the beautiful grounds and scenery but the staff and venue itself made up for it. Our coordinator, Jenna, was the most accommodating, attentive and professional that we could’ve ever have asked for. Our night ran smooth and was picture perfect because of her and the staff at Pen Ryn. I would highly recommend having your affair here if you’re looking for charm, elegance and a night to remember!Sent on 09/25/2018

Short Version: Book your Wedding here!Sent on 08/19/2018
Long Version: This was a fantastic Venue to celebrate our Marriage. They offer an all inclusive package(ceremony, catering, cocktail hour space, reception hall, bridal suite and open bar) that was better than most of the other services we had prices separately. The location is tucked away on the Delaware River just north of Philadelphia(near Philadelphia Mills) and offered plenty of places to take photos. Both venues were beautiful but we opted for the Belle Voir Manor as it was all one level which was good for our Elderly guests. (But just to note other site did have handicap access ramps). Jenna, James and the rest of the Staff made sure everything turned out just as we envisioned. On the day of our wedding it was looking likely to rain so the staff setup both the ballroom and the outside courtyard for the ceremony. Luck was on our side and the rain cleared out just in time for an outside ceremony but knowing we had a backup plan removed one of the day's stresses. From the Cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres to the Dessert Station the food was AMAZING. We went to the stations(buffet style) for the reception and it was a big hit. They also were able to add a vegan meal for one of our guests. Everyone says you don't get to eat at your wedding but Courtney our personal server made sure we got to taste everything and also brought drinks through our the day. We got a lot of complements on the food selection and the venue as a whole. I'm so glad we chose this place and would highly recommend it to others.
Lindsay · Married on 07/06/2018
When my now husband and I first set foot on Pen Ryn Estate, we were awestruck by the grounds and the views of the river. I had been researching venues, and when we found Belle Voir Manor, it was meant to be. We loved the cocktail hour room with it's large ceilings and beautiful architecture. We loved the ballroom complete with huge dance floor. I envisioned using both patios for when people wanted to go outside and get a quick view. I always wanted an indoor/outdoor feel, and being that our wedding was in July, we wanted people to be free to go outside. We opted for an outdoor ceremony onsite, and it was truly magical.Sent on 08/02/2018
Now, let me tell you about the wonderful staff, and why you would be mistaken to not go with this site. We started our journey with Megan who helped make our Belle Voir dream a reality. She led us most of the way, but did end up leaving Belle Voir during our planning. Not to worry though, we were quickly swept off our feet by both Jenna and Bridget. They put to task making our day as special as we could have ever imagined. The staff is attentive, and listens to all of your desires, while also being realistic of what it will look like the day of. Jenna was our maitre-de the day of the wedding, and she took care of everything. Our guests have stated that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. The food was delicious, with many hors d'oeuvres to choose from and amazing entrees. Guests were never left waiting for what was next. It was just really fantastic. With our vendors and the amazing Pen Ryn staff leading the way, I truly felt like we had made the right choice and I will spend so much time reliving all of my favorite parts of that day. Thank you Pen Ryn for making us the happiest couple, and making our day one that we will remember for a lifetime! -Lindsay and Eric

I literally can't say enough good things about Pen Ryn and their event team. We had our wedding at the mansion on 6/29/18 and everything was so beautiful and went so smoothly. We booked our wedding with Megan, who was very professional and friendly. While the venue practically sells itself, it was the personal attention and expertise of Megan that really won us over at the start.Sent on 07/20/2018
As the wedding date approached, we began working with Bridget and Jenna, who were also very helpful and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions and guided me to make sure that our wedding day went as smoothly as possible. And, it did!
On the day of the wedding, we worked with Bridget, who was always there to quarterback the event and let everyone in the wedding party know where they should be and what they should be doing. She was especially great with our young flower girl and ring bearer, explaining to them what to do when walking down the aisle and putting them at ease. During the reception, she worked with the DJ to coordinate all the special moments (parent dances, cake cutting, etc.) to make sure they happened as planned too.
The service we received as the wedding couple was also outstanding. Our bridal server was very attentive, making sure we always had food and drinks. I wish I wrote down his name, but I believe it began with a T. The food was outstanding too, and all of our guests raved about it.
The location is also so, so beautiful. My husband and I loved the historic aspect of the estate and also that it looks out on the Delaware River. It was also very convenient for our guests, mostly from Philadelphia and Bucks County. We talked to so many other people who either had their wedding or their child's wedding there, or who went to a wedding there, and not one person had anything bad to say about Pen Ryn. We feel very lucky to have such a beautiful venue nearby, and that they had a top-notch event team to help make our wedding a success. Thank you all!

Best wedding ever! My daughter's wedding at the Pen Ryn Estate was a beautiful and magical evening. When we first visited Pen Ryn, I knew that we had found the right venue. The ceremony on the Delaware was breath taking and the rooms for the cocktail hour and the reception were beautiful. The cocktail rooms and the room for the reception were set up precisely as we had envisioned and looked absolutely beautiful . The staff and service were excellent. Bridget was such a pleasure to work with. She was friendly, flexible and accommodating and did everything possible to make sure that the occasion was special. Bridget coordinated everything beautifully so that I was able to enjoy the evening without worry. We opted to have fireworks and it was money well spent. They were excellent and really awed the guests. The staff even made it easy when we left as everything was packed and waiting for us at the front door to load into our cars. Everything about our experience was first class. I have received so many complements about how wonderful the wedding was, including many who provided the comment I opened with - Best wedding ever! I would highly recommend Pen Ryn for a wedding, shower or any other event you might be having.Sent on 06/16/2018

Alicia · Married on 05/18/2018
Just have to start off by saying WOW!!! From the very beginning of planning our wedding up until the day, the staff at Pen Ryn Estate were very accommodating. My husband and I decided to give Pen Ryn a try after hearing great reviews from people that we knew. We called and set up an appointment and met with Brianne. She walked us through the 2 properties and we fell in love with Belle Voir Manor. We decided right then and there that this is where we wanted to have our wedding. Brianne was very helpful with every question that we had and her response to emails were very prompt. We were able to have a taste test and meet again to go over final details with Event Team. Jenna and Bridget were nothing short of AMAZING!! They made sure that our day went as smooth as it could and were on top of everything. During our wedding day, we were given someone who made sure that my hubby and I were happy. He brought us our on hor dourves while we waited in the Bridal Suite to be introduced and helped out in any way that he could. We received so many compliments about the venue, the food, the staff and the overall experience. I could not have had a better wedding day!Sent on 06/18/2018

The Pen Ryn team was phenomenal. We can't stress enough how much they delivered on service. The food was to die for. We wanted for nothing during our event. Jenna was extremely helpful as we moved towards the end of our engagement and into the BIG day (our original planner left about 6 months before).Sent on 04/23/2018
The staff made sure that not only was the bridal party taken care of, but that the guest were all expertly and generously looked after as well.
I would highly recommend Pen Ryn Mansion to anyone looking for a beautiful riverside venue for their event.

The staff at Pen Ryn did a fabulous job putting on my wedding. My original event coordinator left about 3 months before the wedding, but Jenna was able to step right in without missing a beat. There were a lot of very particular cultural aspects involved and she and the rest of the staff got every one of them down perfectly. Overall they were great with being flexible and making sure my husband and I got what we wanted while staying within our budget. Oh, and the food was awesome!Sent on 02/13/2018

Our wedding at Pen Ryn Estate was nothing more than an absolute dream! We never thought we would be able to afford such a beautiful venue, but they really worked with us to make it everything we could want and more (wedding date was 1.20.18). Even when our even coordinator left Pen Ryn just a few months prior to the wedding, our new coordinators Bridget and Jenna made us feel like they had been with us from day one. Every detail was meticulously cared for which put me at ease both throughout the planning process and the day of. Our day went perfectly with the thanks of Jenna, Bridget, and Jim (our captain). They made sure we could want for nothing.Sent on 02/20/2018
We had both an indoor ceremony and reception at the Pen Ryn Mansion. The candle light fireplaces created a warm, cozy and classic atmosphere, making for the most perfect winter wedding! So many of our guests were raving about the ceremony and the venue throughout the night.
Pen Ryn made it possible for Justin and I to have the best day of our lives!
Ashley · Married on 12/01/2017
My husband and I couldn't be happier to have selected Pen Ryn Estate as our wedding venue. After our initial meeting with Brianne, our event coordinator, we knew immediately that this was the place—we never bothered to look elsewhere! Brianne was phenomenal and made the entire process seamless from beginning to end. Brianne and her team executed our vision more flawlessly than I could’ve ever imagined. Every detail of our day was absolute perfection. From arriving to dress in the bridal suite, to leaving at the end of the evening, everything and everyone exceeded our expectations and we were never treated any less than royalty. Our Captain, Jim, and our maître d’, Bridget were exceptional in every way. My husband and I never had an empty drink or wanted for anything. Their attention to detail was like no other and we couldn’t have been more pleased with how they went the extra mile with everything (i.e. constantly checking back to see if we needed anything, bringing appetizers up to the bridal suite, having my flats waiting for me at our sweetheart table.. I could go on and on!). They even made leaving at the end of the night simple—all of our things where packed up and waiting for us by the door. We especially appreciated how they took such great care of our immediate families throughout the entire evening. The food was, by far, the best we’ve ever had at a wedding. The mashed potato bar and the cocktail hour as a whole were such a hit. I was apprehensive to add steak to our menu as venues often serve overcooked filets, but not Pen Ryn. They took the time to check temperatures with my guest and everyone got theirs cooked exactly how they wanted. The cake and the confection plates were delicious, and the outdoor s'mores station was a huge hit. We were just so pleased with the food and our guests are still raving about it today. With such an incredible location, food, and staff, why would you go anywhere else? Thank you, Pen Ryn, for giving us the day of our dreams!Sent on 02/20/2018

We were married at Belle Voir a week ago today and we are wishing we could do it all again tonight!. The venue and grounds are picture perfect and we have received so many calls from our guests who were impressed with the food, the service and the absolute beauty of the surroundings. It was such a pleasure to work with Brianne this past year with all the planning and questions i had, she was always a phone call or email away and was super prompt with a response. The day of was a breeze with help from Shauna and all the staff who were attentive to our every need. If you are looking for a beautiful venue, with great food, service and value this is it!Sent on 11/18/2017

Our daughter and son in-law were married this past weekend at Pen Ryn.From the moment we first viewed Pen Ryn we fell in love with the venue.Our sales consultant, Megan was outstanding,she provided useful insights and always answered all of our questions. She was always available when we had questions and couldn't have been more cooperative. All of our expectations were exceeded. The venue was perfect. Our banquet manager, Shauna and our maitre d', Karen were also outstanding. The decorations we dropped off were set up impeccably. They were also picked up and packed perfectly at the conclusion of the event by Pen Ryn's staff.

This Estate offers 2 venues, the Mansion and Belle Voir Manor. Our wedding was at the Belle Voir Manor in October 2017. It was the same day as the awful "monsoon" rain storm, it didn't stop raining for even 10seconds...supposed to be lucky, right? I dealt with Brianne with the entire planning process, she answered any and all of my questions(I had ALOT). The staff was so organized, so helpful, friendly and always smiling. I never had to ask for anything the entire day/evening. The food was fantastic, the options are endless. They also partner with Isgro's Bakery in Philadelphia.....BEST wedding cake EVER(and no, not just because it was mine lol), we had vanilla cake with raspberry swirled in, DELISH. My only "complaint" is there was a minor fire incident(candle placed to close to the centerpiece by the florist) and there are NO PICTURES! HAHAHA. The staff handled it quietly and quickly with NO interruptions.Sent on 02/20/2018
Thank you again for all you do and making our day GREAT.

From the very beginning, we knew we were in good hands. We planned everything with Megan, who was exceptional! She made sure all of our questions were answered and treated us like family.
Jumping forward to our big day! Jenna (our Maitre'D) and Shauna (Manager) were phenomenal! Never once did we have to worry about anything! The food was delicious! The staff was amazing and made sure we were happy every step of the way. My Husband and I love cars. My favorite car is a Mustang. I tried to find a Mustang to rent to use as a backdrop for a few pictures, but was unable to. Little did I know, my husband spoke to Shauna (who owns a beautiful red Mustang) and she agreed to let us use her car for pictures! What an amazing surprise from my Husband and the staff! Shauna had her car cleaned, just for us to use!! My Husband was so excited to surprise me! At the very end of our night, Shauna and Jenna decorated the Mustang with "Just Married", tied cans to the back (Just like in the movies), had a sparkler send off, and even let my husband and I take the Mustang for a spin! This was the best experience ever! Our guests told us how much they really enjoyed their experience at Belle Voir. I will forever recommend this Venue to anyone who is getting married, having a party, ECT. Thank you Pen Ryn for the unforgettable experience! #prefamily

We had our reception at Pen Ryn Mansion on 9/30/2017. Brianne was really great to work with throughout the planning process and the day of staff (especially Nicole who made sure we had everything we needed throughout the whole night) was amazing as well. The night went off perfectly - people raved about the food (especially the asian stir fry station) and dessert stations. The prices were very reasonable and the building and property were beautiful and made for a really unique wedding venue! We loved everything about Pen Ryn and would highly recommend it to any couples looking to get married!Sent on 10/22/2017
