Day of my Dreams posted 8/9/2010

My husband and I walked into Pen Ryn and knew this is where we would be celebrating our Marriage! The charm and history is breathtaking. The accomodations were pefect and we danced ALL night. The backdrop of the Delaware River and well-manicured grounds created beautiful pictures. And the staff was attentive and helpful. Not to mention the food- we still receive comments about how wonderful the food was! By far one of the best choices for our wedding day (besides the groom)!

AAAAAA-mazing!!! posted 9/17/2014 (modified 9/17/2014)

I literally cannot say enough good things about Pen Ryn. We got married there Saturday August 30th – 2014, and it was amazing. We picked the venue bc of the uniqueness of it, the views and the mansion itself. I went to see a couple venues but my fiancé (now husband) only went to Pen Ryn with my bc he didn’t like all the other cookie cutter hotels and country clubs and refused to see them haha! Elizabeth went over every little detail with us – and after coming back for a 2nd visit with my parents we signed the contract!! Elizabeth and I talked very often – and she was always checking in to say hi and make sure the planning and everything was going good and what not. The Thursday before the wedding – we dropped everything off for our wedding (and there was a lotttttt of stuff haha) – 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. The photographers, videographer and bridal party 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!! There were even sail boats and this huge wooden boat going by on the river at different points while we were doing pictures, they made the background even more beautiful! I’m so excited to get our pictures back!!!! 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 soooo 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 wrapped scallops and Asian station!!!! Every time I turned around Joe had a plate of appetizers for us and champagne. He also 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 from 6:30 to 10:30 but we stayed and danced until 10:50ish! As we were saying goodbye to guests – all of the employees were busy around us packing up all of our stuff for us (and we had A LOT of stuff haha)!! It was so perfect. There were still about 20 of us there and we all walked to the front door and all of my totes of stuff were sitting at the front door packed and waiting for us – and then the staff loaded everything into our cars! The night was absolutely perfect and everyone was so accommodating! I had made a few requests to Elizabeth throughout the planning process – and every single one of them was done for us that night – from where certain decorations should go, switching out beers, having extra dessert and having extra table clothes set aside for us for a crazy family dance we have – everything was perfect! I really wish we could live that whole night over again!!! I would highly recommend having your wedding here!!!

Stunning Venue + Exceptional Staff = Perfect Day posted 3/11/2014 (modified 3/12/2014)

Pen Ryn is a most wonderful place to have a wedding. Our guests raved about the food and drinks, the friendly staff, and the beautiful venue. We held both our wedding and our reception here, and it is an excellent spot for both events. We even held the rehearsal dinner here the night before in the mansion (our wedding was in the Belle Voire Carriage House).

Elizabeth was phenomenal in working with us as we planned each step of the process. She was incredibly accommodating and easy to work with. Linda was in charge of our rehearsal and wedding day, and to say she was exceptional is an understatement. She coordinated things smoothly and positively. The staff there was efficient and friendly - many went out of their way to congratulate us.

What a gorgeous venue, and what wonderful people who work there! We highly recommend Pen Ryn Estate!

more than i expected posted 1/23/2015

My husband and I were married at Pen Ryn- Belle Voir Manor. The facility and employees exceeded our expectations- especially Joe and Linda. The venue was absolutely beautiful- we were married around Christmas time and the decorations were classy and elegant. The food was delicious. Joe was responsible for serving us and he was a pleasure! He always made sure we had food and drinks available at any time. He is such a hard worker! I received nothing but compliments from our guests. And, the price was reasonable as well (we did get married on a Friday in the off season though). The event coordinators were difficult to get a timely from prior to the date, but overall, I was extremely pleased!

The BEST wedding ever! posted 1/8/2015 (modified 1/8/2015)

My daughter just got married at the Bel Voir Manor at Pen Ryn. The venue is absolutely gorgeous ! Have to see in person. The room for the cocktail hour was so roomy and warm yet elegant. The banquet room was very rich looking, very regal; The ceiling is high and the chandeliers were extravagant. So so pretty. But it gets better... The staff and people helping us were outstanding. They treated us like family, and were so accommodating. Then to top it off, the food was delicious. One guest said he cleaned his plate better than dishwasher!

A Chrsitmes Dream Come True posted 1/4/2015 (modified 1/4/2015)

It has been exactly one week since my daughter and her fiancée had the most beautiful wedding ever at the Pen Ryn Estate. Pen Ryn was richly decorated for the holiday and provided an elegant backdrop for an exquisite reception. The attention to detail which had been evident throughout the planning time was certainly apparent on the day of the reception. The food was absolutely delicious and our guests were treated with the utmost respect by this professionally skilled staff who were so kind and courteous throughout the day. Everyone was so helpful from the coat check attendant to the valets and particular mention must be made of our outstanding event planner and event manager. Both made sure that our every wish was granted, anticipated our needs and made many wonderful suggestions to insure our day was perfect. Thanks, Pen Ryn, for all the memories!

A big thank you to the entire Pen Ryn staff for making our October 25, 2014 wedding at Pen Ryn Mansion a beautiful and memorable day! We continue to get compliments on how much fun everyone had and how beautiful the estate is. The entire staff was extremely accommodating to help everything go smoothly, especially at our rehearsal and on the day of our wedding! My husband and I couldn't have envisioned our day any more perfectly. Thank you SO MUCH!

What a wonderful day!! posted 11/25/2014

My husband and I just got married on 11/22/14 and what an amazing day it was! We had both our ceremony and reception at The Pen Ryn Mansion and everything was flawless! We were able to arrive earlier because no event was planned before ours which made it less stressful and we had more time to relax before walking down the aisle.

Elizabeth was awesome from day one to the day before. She was always available to answer questions and made planning our wedding very easy! Linda was our coordinator the day of and she made sure that things ran smoothly and they did! We didn't have to worry about a thing because she did that for us and kept the day moving. Our personal bridal attendant made sure we had food and drinks during our pictures after the ceremony and kept that service going through the night.

Our guests raved about the food and how gorgeous the place was at this time of year. The fireplaces were on when we got there and really set the mood for our evening wedding.

We are beyond happy that we chose the Pen Ryn Mansion to get married at and we would again if we had the chance! Everything was breathtaking and it was just the best day of our lives!

Absolutely Magical! posted 10/11/2014 (modified 10/11/2014)

About a year and a half ago, my mom suggested we check out Pen Ryn as our Reception venue. I thought it would be out of the budget, but went for the visit anyways. From the first point of contact with Elizabeth, she was nothing but friendly! We were greeted with a smile as we toured both the Mansion and the Belle Voir. My fiancé and I loved the look and feel of the Mansion – the elegance of the ballroom, timelessness of the mansion, and the fantastic library sold us! We were ready to sign that night!! Elizabeth helped us every step of the way and was always quick to respond to emails or calls. We even almost forgot to order our cake (bridal brain!) and we sent an email at 11:30PM asking Elizabeth to order it for us and it was ordered that next day!

When we arrived the day of our wedding we were greeted as we exited the limo by Linda and a few servers from Pen Ryn. They took our bags up to the bridal suite so we could start pictures and even brought out a tray of hors d'oeuvres as well as beers and waters. Before our cocktail hour ended, the bridal party headed up to the bridal suite where we were served champagne and hors d'oeuvres as we took a few minutes to regroup.

The entire staff was very attentive to our needs. My husband even noticed that there was always someone from Pen Ryn standing near our bird cage where all of our cards were!!! Numerous people came up to us to tell us how awesome the cocktail hour was, and how they enjoyed their meals. At the end of the night, everything was packed up in the same boxes we dropped them off in, including the top tier of our cake. My husband and I were standing in the ballroom at the end of the night and Linda came over and asked if she could bring us anything. My husband said “I think I need a drink” and she said “Well, what would you like, I’ll see what I can do?” We only wanted waters, but the true message that ran through the entire venue is that Pen Ryn always found ways to say “yes” even when our reception was over!!

Being that this was our wedding day, we wanted everything to be perfect. If we could give more than 5 stars we would!! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect venue and staff which only made our day more magical!!

I want to thank the entire staff at Pen Ryn Estate. Our daughters wedding was at Belle Voir Manor on Oct 3, 2014 and was simply put- perfect!! The staff could not have been more attentive/professional and the food was incredible. We are still receiving e-mails and notes thanking us for a wonderful affair and a great time had by all. The rehearsal dinner was held at Pen Ryn Mansion and everything was perfect there as well. Thank you to Linda Brett for everything you did to make this the wedding of our children's dreams!!!

So romantic, so well done! posted 9/23/2014 (modified 9/23/2014)

I have actually been to this property three times now for weddings as a guest, and as a member of the bridal party. I absolutely love it! Pen Ryn estate offers such romantic scenery, it really feels like a dream location for a wedding. The food is seriously delicious too, which is such a huge bonus! Most recently I had the tilapia plate that they offer and my husband had the lamb. I expected the tilapia to be a thin piece of fish, but it was actually a very substantial filet and was really perfectly cooked! After a little arm twisting, my husband let me have a bite of his lamb and it was amazing too. As a member of the wedding party, I always appreciate when the wedding is well coordinated and the "behind-the-scenes" work is well executed so that I don't have to constantly play the go between and can enjoy the wedding. We had one minor hitch--the wedding in the adjacent venue was playing music loudly while they're guests arrived right before our ceremony was to begin, which was also held outdoors. I brought it to the attention of one of the employees and the music was inaudible within minutes. We very much appreciated how quickly they handled it and were able to enjoy a beautiful ceremony in the outdoor area by the river. I would definitely recommend Pen Ryn to anyone who asked! This was actually the first place that I called when I was getting married in 2010, but unfortunately they were already booked for our date.

Wedding Venue Pen Ryn Belle Voir Manor posted 9/12/2014 (modified 9/12/2014)

I love this venue, my wedding was planned in 3 weeks and thank God they were able to accomodate us. Had a Sunday brunch at Belle Voir Manor, Linda was our banquet manager. She was very professional and looked after every detail, along with keeping us informed, Elizabeth Lutz was my wedding consultant. Elizabeth was outstanding, sweet, professional and worked with our budget. The ambience was perfect, having the ceremony on their beautiful grounds and reception inside was top notch. Please brides and grooms, before you choose a venue, you must visit Pen Ryn Estate.

We had our wedding in the Belle Voir section of the Pen Ryn Estate and it was perfect! It is a little more modern feeling, with views of the Delaware River from the ball room. They staff was amazing, so friendly, so helpful, so welcoming, and very professional. The food was amazing, our guests are still raving about the mashed potato bar.

Absolutely amazing posted 7/28/2014 (modified 8/17/2014)

We had our ceremony and reception at belle voir and I honestly can not say enough positive things about my experience. From day one, Elizabeth Lotz was there answering all my questions and making me feel like my wedding was truly a priority. They worked with us through every tiny detail and made me feel so at ease and stress free during the planning process.

The day of the wedding, I got to the venue and everything was set up for me and it truly took my breath away how beautifully they made my vision come to life! The staff was there every step of the way making sure the bridal party had food, drinks, and anything else we needed. The server even followed us throughout picture hour with water to make sure we were okay outside in the heat. During the reception there was always appetizers, food, and cocktails on our sweetheart table and the servers were soo attentive the entire night and continuously smiling.

The wedding was three weeks ago and people are still telling me it was the best wedding they've ever been to, raving about the food and how beautiful the site was with the river in the background. I could go on for hours about how pleased I was with the service, food, view, and the amazing wait staff. I truly recommend this venue to anyone and everyone who wants a gorgeous wedding and a stress free day. Pen ryn really caters to your every need and takes a lot of the stress off the brides shoulders. I couldn't be more pleased with my
Experience!!

We had our reception at Belle Voir Manor, and it was perfect! Elizabeth helped with all the planning and so so accommodating with all we wanted to do. I did have to follow up on a few calls and emails, but I also got married in June, which is a busy month. THe night of the wedding Linda was there on site and helped with everything we needed. They were wonderful and the place was beautiful!

We actually had our wedding at the Belle Voir Manor (the carriage house next to the Pen Ryn mansion). The carriage house is nice and definitely needed for the # of guests we had (185). The room is open, but overall, there is less charm at the Belle Voir than at the mansion. However, we lucked out and the mansion wasn't booked on the day of our wedding so we were able to take pictures inside! We got some amazing photos. The grounds are so pretty and everyone utilized the indoor and outdoor space (it was in May, about 72 degrees outside). The ballroom fit all of the guests comfortably. The food was amazing. We got several raving reviews about cocktail hour. Some favorites were the cheesesteak egg roll (must have!), bacon wrapped scallops from the Hawaiian Hut station, and mini sliders. The mashed potato bar was amazing, but unfortunately some guests didn't see it hidden on the side (we asked to set up the stations in the center of the room but they forgot - no big deal). The dinner was average - nothing special, nothing that blew anyone away, but every guest (that I talked to after) said that they enjoyed it. Dessert was amazing! We had a chocolate fountain and a cheesecake mousse served in a martini glass. There was a line for the chocolate fountain the whole night! It was a big hit! The cake is by Isgro Bakery in South Philly. We got the chocolate chip cake (choices were vanilla, chocolate, marble, raspberry, or lemon pound). The cake was included too! (We paid for a minor upgrade in decoration). Overall, I believe my guests enjoyed their experience, and I was super happy with mine. They were accommodating to our budget, responsive, and willing to provide help/advice. We had an excellent time and our guests did too (maybe with some help from that extra hour at the open bar).
