We just had our daughters wedding at Penn Oaks and it was absolutely amazing. Even though it rained, the inside venue was gorgeous. We heard over and over again how fantastic the food was, not to mention the amount of food available. Our event planner was Carina, and she was... Read More great to work with, and I suggest asking for her! Anything and everything you could have asked for was never too much. I truly can't say enough great things about Penn Oaks!

Not military friendly. They were entirely on board until we explained to them that we would need a military clause. The date was sold out from under us while we were waiting for an answer and we barely got an apology. We loved the venue, but if you are military, I would not... Read More recommend it at all.

My husband and I got married on August 26, 2016 at Penn Oaks where we had both our ceremony and reception and I cannot begin to explain how AMAZING it was. Our wedding coordinator was Carina and she was THE ABSOLUTE BEST! Please ask for her!!! You will not regret it. The amount... Read More of patience she had, in order to deal with me and my family was truly extraordinary. She helped made our day go so perfect. On the day of the wedding Penn Oaks' staff were so nice, welcoming and tended to our every need. No need to worry about the food either. Our guests made sure to express how tasty the food was! Our family is accustomed to Caribbean food and during our food tasting we asked the chef if they could add jerk seasoning to our plates and needless to say it was a hit!!! What I love is that Penn Oaks went out their way to make sure the food was how we wanted it to be! During cocktail hour the food would not stop coming!!! The bartenders were super nice and to top off the amazing night my husband surprised me with fireworks! Our guests kept telling us how and I quote, "It was best wedding they've been to!!!". The stress leading up to it was worth it due to the end result! I'm so happy we picked this venue and honestly wish we could re-live it again <3 Please make an appointment to visit Penn Oaks!! The grounds are beautiful (perfect for photos!!!!) and the reception hall is gorgeous! Definitely a day you will never forget!!!!

My husband (still getting used to saying that!) and I had our wedding at Penn Oaks on Sunday 4/24/16. I couldn't have asked for a better venue. I have dreamed about my wedding my whole life, and Penn Oaks helped make my dreams come true. From the moment we first looked at the... Read More venue in November 2015, we fell in love and knew it was where we had to have our wedding. Jeanette C was our wedding coordinator, and she was amazing. She was very kind, helpful, responsive, and professional. We had a 5-month engagement, and Jeanette helped make sure everything got done. The night of the wedding Lisa was there to help, and she was also very friendly and helpful. The food at our tasting was so good, it was hard to pick just 2 entrees, but we ended up choosing the Chicken Meditteranean and the Stuffed Flounder, both of which were delicious! Our cocktail hour, though my husband and I only attended for a short time, was great, and everyone raved about all of the food! Thank you Penn Oaks for helping us create the wedding of our dreams! If you are looking for a great venue in West Chester, I highly suggest Penn Oaks Golf Club!

We got married at Penn Oaks on September 6, 2015. Dawn and her staff were spectacular! She saw us through every aspect of planning. My parents are EXTREMELY detail-oriented and I'm an only child, and Dawn answered each and every one of their questions patiently and kindly. She... Read More never once made us feel like a nuisance! The day was gorgeous - every step was perfectly planned and everything flowed smoothly. My guests were never kept waiting. The food was delicious and the presentation was gorgeous. Dawn made sure her staff took great care of us - they ran back and forth getting us water! Haha, we were constantly parched due to all the excitement and everyone was gracious and lovely. There was even a wedding before ours, which I had worried about, but all my worries were in vain - it was as if we were their only wedding that day! I cannot articulate how perfect everything was - Dawn and each member of her staff made it the best day of our lives, and I couldn't help but remark to my new husband, at least six times, "Everything is perfect!" They even offer fireworks as a part of the package, and my father-in-law decided to splurge on it for us. It was amazing and they did a truly incredible job! Thank you so much to everyone at Penn Oaks who made our wedding day amazing!

I just got married on August 28, 2015, and had my wedding reception held at Penn Oaks. I found Penn Oaks originally and heard many wonderful things about it from others. One of the major reasons my husband and I loved Penn Oaks is their large tent area. We were able to use... Read More both the ballroom and the tent room throughout the night. The tent provided the perfect space for dancing and other activities, including the photo booth. All of our guests were in the tent at the end of the night and there were many chairs and seating available to watch the dancing. We worked with Carina and she did a wonderful job making sure that we were on the same page during the whole process. The staff on the day of our wedding did a beautiful job setting up our reception area beautifully. The decorations we brought were all displayed nicely. The tables looked beautiful, the food was delicious, and our guests can't stop talking about how beautiful it was! I would highly recommend Penn Oaks for anyone looking for a classy, tasteful wedding venue. The greens also provides beautiful space for pictures. We were able to even use a golf cart and drive to other parts of the green for different backdrops. Thank you Penn Oaks for making my day so special!

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Penn Oaks on 8/7/15. The entire process from start to finish was nothing short of perfection. From the moment I walked into Penn Oaks to visit the venue to the end of reception there, everything was absolutely fantastic. We worked...

My husband and I are incredibly happy with the whole wedding planning process at Penn Oaks. From the day we first visited the venue, our coordinator Carina was warm, professional, and organized (a bride's dream!). Any questions we had throughout the whole process were quickly... Read More answered by Carina. We had several allergies in our families, and Carina was so great about making sure they were accommodated on our wedding day. When it came time to drop off our final check and decorations, our schedules didn't match with Carina's. She graciously swapped her work schedule that day with another coordinator so we could drop the check off later. She even made herself available so I could stop by and test out centerpieces one weekend when she was busy with another event going on at the club. On the actual wedding day, everything went so smoothly. Carina and the staff set up all the centerpieces and decorations just as I had wanted them. The food was so delicious and abundant. I had several friends and family members say it was some of the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Additionally, the service provided by the staff and banquet manager was excellent. After the wedding was over, they packaged all our decorations and even let us come pick them up the next morning so we didn't have to take them back to the hotel that night. I could go on and on about how great Penn Oaks is. We got so much value for what we paid. (Oh, and if you have your wedding in the winter (like we did), they have an insurance policy that makes your wedding FREE if it snows 6 inches or more on the day of your wedding. That was honestly the selling point for us since all the other venues we toured said we were SOL if it snowed on the wedding day.) My husband and I cannot speak any more highly of Penn Oaks and Carina! We will be recommending it to anyone planning any kind of event!
