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... Read More 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!!!

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...

She coordinated things smoothly and positively. The staff there was efficient and friendly - many went out of their way to congratulate us.

Just seeing the beautiful Pen Ryn and all they have to offer makes it an easy pick. Meeting Brianne Sheahan will also help you to choose, she's the absolute sweetest and very knowledgable!

All the staff at Pen Ryn were on the ball, with reminder emails leading up to the big day helping everything run smoothly and then of course on the big day!

They allowed me to have a first look and approve all the decor at the reception hall, which was done perfectly! They made sure we had everything we needed in the bridal suite. I'm just amazed at how sweet and attentive they really were! We got so many compliments on the food and drinks at Pen Ryn! They definitely do not skimp on flavor of the food and alcohol in the drinks, everything was on point! The signature drinks I made up without even tasting were an absolute hit! EVERYONE complimented them and it's because the bartenders were that good! I would absolutely recommend this venue to all brides! Before my wedding I heard nothing but good things about Pen Ryn, even from brides who got married here 5 years ago! And they didn't let me down! Best day everrrrrr <3 thank you Pen Ryn Belle Vior Manor!

I can't think of a more perfect setting for our Memorial Day weekend wedding. Our ceremony was outside Pen Ryn Mansion, overlooking the river. Absolutely everything was perfect that day, and the venue was more breathtaking than we had imagined it--inside and out! The food was... Read More AMAZING (highly recommend the ahi tuna on wasabi crackers as an hors d'oeuvres). We've still been getting compliments from family and friends on our venue choice. My only complaint is that 1-We were told there would not be a wedding at Belle Voir (the venue next door) the same day as our wedding, which we found to be false when the groomsmen from Belle Voir came over to take pictures before our ceremony. They are in the background of some of our pictures as a result, which was really disappointing and off-putting to us (But probably more inconsiderate on the part of their photographer!). Still, we would definitely recommend this venue to newly engaged couples and are hoping to attend another wedding there as guests in the near future! THANK YOU, PEN RYN! Love, Mike & Erin Gilbert

From the initial meeting to the final event, Pen Ryn was enthusiastic, cooperative, flexible, attentive, and personable. Throughout our five-month planning process, we did not encounter a staff member that was not courteous, respectful, cooperative and easy going. The... Read More professional and expertise of everyone made our day PERFECT and MAGICAL. Megan, our sales representative (manager) was so easy to deal with; she was consistently available and always willing to work with us. In times of panic and stress, Megan was naturally calming and always made us feel at ease. Closer to the wedding, she even returned calls on her day off. Our bridal server, Nicole, was so attentive. We weren’t even finished food/drinks and she was right there ready to serve whatever we needed. Kaitlyn, the Maître d had everything set up as requested and the schedule of events were executed precisely as planned. We received raving reviews from our guests; “The BEST food we have EVER had at a wedding” seems to be the most reoccurring feedback. The food at cocktail hour, stations, all of the meals, the salad and deserts were ALL to die for! Everyone boasted about the gorgeous views of the Delaware and the beauty of the mansion. Guests were impressed with service and the uniqueness of the add-ons. They LOVED the Martini and Cheesesteak bars. A family friend said they always rate weddings at the end and ours was ranked as, “The Best Wedding” they have ever attended. In all honesty, it was the best day of our lives and that could not have been made possible without Pen Ryn’s incredible staff. We cannot thank them enough for the life-long memory!
